The property has been furnished in a contemporary style and decorated to create a light and airy feel that complements the character of the former rectory, and is perfect for a quiet romantic getaway. It enjoys an attractive and secluded setting approached by a private road and drive adjacent to the parish church of St Peters. Offering a warm welcome at any time of the year, it is a perfect base for exploring all that the area has to offer.

The Mid Norfolk Railway (MNR) is ½ mile away with trips available from Yaxham to Wymondham Abbey and Dereham. Dereham, 2 miles, offers an indoor swimming pool, cinema, bowling, shops, supermarkets and a market on Tuesdays and Fridays. The property lies within an hour’s drive of the coast, with excellent sandy beaches and RSPB nature and bird reserves. The Norfolk Broads, the Brecks (and its stone curlews), Peddars Way, Norfolk Coastal Path and many National Trust properties are also easily accessible.

The village is at the centre of a network of footpaths and there is a children’s play area and recreation ground close to the church. From the nearby bus stop, regular bus services go to Dereham and Norwich. Restaurant/takeaway and café ½ mile, pub 1½ mile.

Can be booked with The Old Rectory Coach House (ref CTX) to accommodate up to 7 guests.

    Absolutely fabulous cottage - exactly as in the photos and the secret garden is just that, secret! Would have no hesitation in recommending this property if visiting Norfolk. In fact, it would be worth going out of your way just to stay here!

    A beautiful cottage in the owners grounds. Spotlessly clean and filled with everything you need. Shops and pubs a few miles away. Centrally located for all tourist attractions which we visited daily. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. We loved our 2 week stay here and will be back again in the future.

    Lovely cottage, very peaceful and comfortable. Knew it was about 20 miles in any direction to key spots to visit; saw lots of enchanting villages on journeys to and from coast and Broads. Norfolk has lots to offer. Only down side was lack of amenities in walking distance. Hosts very pleasant.

    Wonderful holiday in a delightful cottage. It is comfortable, well equipped and very relaxing. Best cottage I’ve ever stayed in for the things that were provided, including the welcome pack. We had great weather and found the location excellent for being able to reach most places such as the Coast or Broads, easily.
