The Experience

Once the cowman’s cottage, this pretty red-bricked building with its own patch of garden sits next to the Elizabethan farmhouse and is of typical Norfolk design. Oak beams, a large Inglenook fireplace and the original old tree handrail remain, but style and comfort are now the order of the day. The sitting room is super with gentle colours, wooden floors, exposed brick walls, antiques, a warming wood-burner and striped blinds; sink into squashy sofas with checked throws. Cooks will enjoy the long kitchen with stone flagging, a charming dresser and a farmhouse wooden table; wine, homemade cake and free-range eggs are a welcome gift alongside the basics. The main bathroom is on the ground floor: wooden birds and shells sit on the high window shelf, the bath is a rolltop and the half wooden panelling is painted soft grey. Upstairs to a light and airy double with its own shower room, a vaulted ceiling, garden views, an ornate bed and blue gingham curtains; the twin is equally lovely. Collect eggs, browse antiques, visit the farming museum or head for the coast. Great fun.

We stayed in Stockman's cottage at the end of May and we had a really fantastic ,happy and relaxing holiday ! The interiors are gorgeous ....there are lovely country colours and fabrics everywhere , antique furniture and original features . Everything you could possibly need or need to know is provided and the everything in the house Is of the very best quality . We were grateful for a generous welcome hamper and good stock of essentials after a long journey . The setting is especially pretty and the farm is surrounded by lovely unspoilt countryside with many other lovely places close by .

Such a delightful cottage in a lovely location. We loved the wood burner (a real treat for us townies) and the owners had gone out of their way to have the wood stacked up and the fire was lit for our arrival too. The cottage is spacious with everything you need. The decor very tasteful and with great attention to detail. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and live nearby. They had prepared a wonderful folder, well laid out explaining everything to do and where to go. This was invaluable as it was our first time to Norfolk and can't wait to return. Highly recommend Stockman's Cottage.

Our second visit to The Stockman’s Cottage. Gorgeous interiors, wood burner and great attention to detail – we love it, a real home from home! I would really recommend staying here to anyone who doesn’t know Norfolk. Very well located close to the coast etc. Spent a lovely day in Norwich too. The owners Simon & Catherine are really helpful with lots of tips of where to go and where to eat. Our kids love the ducks and chickens, just glad they didn’t try and bring one home!
