Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Watch the world go by from the large picture window or enjoy a waterside barbecue in a beautiful location close to many attractions.

Enjoying a prime position on the banks of the River Wissey, aptly named Riverside Cottage offers cosy, well-appointed accommodation for those looking to enjoy a peaceful location. Adjacent to the owners’ B&B, this delightful annexe lies within easy reach of Ely, Cambridge and Newmarket. The gateway to the North Norfolk Coast is just half an hour away, where you will find a string of pretty coastal towns offering a mix of beautiful beaches, marshes and picturesque quays. Hunstanton offers all the fun of the fair, while Wells-next-the-Sea offers a more relaxed atmosphere. The drive between the two will offer beautiful views along with boutiques to shop and places to eat.

Ely, with its magnificent cathedral and stained glass museum is a must, and for history buffs, the Hanseatic Quarter of Old Kings Lynn and the medieval city of Norwich with its splendid Norman castle makes for a great day out. Sandringham Estate is close by and the area offers many National Trust properties including Peckover House and Garden, and Holkham Hall. Welney Wetland Centre is the perfect place for birdwatchers, and there are many pretty routes for walkers and cyclists direct from the door. After a day of exploring, enjoy a waterside barbecue back at Riverside Cottage, or watch the world go by from the large picture window in the living room. Beach 24 miles. Shop ½ mile, pub 100 yards, restaurant 1½ miles.

    Whilst not the most inviting looking place on arrival, the cottage is in a perfect location right on the river bank.A new patio window with new outdoor area and patio furniture made our break more interesting.The double bed was a joke,with a worn out extremely uncomfortable mattress.For me,cleanliness was an issue in the bathrooms .The excellent welcome pack was a treat!

    Situated in a very beautiful area. A bit on the small and dated side. Owners very pleasant. Will go out of their way to help you. Downside, Bugs come out hot water taps. Drive way is garage to owner, people come and go all day. Bed not comfy.
