The Experience

This red-bricked building with its own garden sits next to the Elizabethan farmhouse and is of typical Norfolk design. It’s a riot of oak beams with latch doors, a large Inglenook fireplace and the original old tree handrail. Relax in the sitting room with its gentle colours, wooden floors, exposed brick walls, antiques, a warming wood-burner (lit for your arrival on chilly days) 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; a welcome hamper of fresh (double yoke) eggs from the village, bread, milk, a wedge of Brie, wine and crisps will be waiting alongside all the basics for cooking. Upstairs to a light and airy double with its own shower room, a vaulted ceiling and garden views; the twin is equally lovely.

You can wander to the village in a few minutes and there are three good dog walks from the door.

I was very impressed with Simon and Catherine's attention to detail. From the moment you turn into the driveway, you feel looked after. There is clear signage, an easy place to park and a welcoming trellis gate to walk through. The cottage inside is immaculate and cosy. It has all the essentials to make your stay a comfortable one. Simon is very enthusiastic about making your stay memorable.

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!

The neighbourhood

You're in the grounds of the owners’ farmhouse but you have your own private parking, enclosed gardens and separate entrance. The village is half a mile for a pub, a small store and a beautiful church. The Brisley Bell is 10 minutes by car, Algy's Farm Shop is 2 miles for stocking up and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve is 8 miles. Wells-next-the-Sea is 18 miles and still a working fishing port.

Local points of interest from Simon & Catherine Davis

  • Visit the hidden village of Heydon or follow the millstream walks of nearby Sparham Pools
  • Well located to Burnham Market, Wells Next-The-Sea, Holt, Holkham, Norwich etc.
  • Walking distance to a good village pub that serves home made food.
  • Babysitting service available.
  • Plan ahead and book a show at Norwich Theatre!
  • A well laid out information pack has everything you need to know to have a fabulous stay.


Simon & Catherine Davis

Simon and Catherine moved to Norfolk in 2003 with their three children. They renovated the main house and the outbuildings themselves (they've even been featured in a few interiors magazines) and run their own antiques business, so have a good eye for detail. Simon will send you a PDF of walks and other advice about the area before you arrive but they are around if you need any extra help.
