Spacious and very well equipped bungalow boasting a swimming pool, hot tub and enclosed gardens. A good base for exploring both coast and country.

In the lawned garden of this attractive, detached, single-storey property, a handsome pine building houses an indoor heated swimming pool with spa for exclusive use of visitors. The property offers spacious holiday accommodation and large enclosed lawned garden with a seating terrace. There is also a hot tub for guests to enjoy. This is an ideal location for exploring the North Norfolk coastline with its excellent sandy beaches, wealth of RSPB bird sanctuaries and coastal path. A 10-minute drive leads to the market town of Fakenham, with shops, cafés, restaurants, bowling alley, cinema, pitch and putt golf course, and which is also host to regular horse race meetings.
Bustling Burnham Market, 14 miles, and Wells-next-the-Sea, with its excellent sandy beach, picturesque quay, small working fishing harbour - which sells fresh shell fish, as well as being the perfect location for catching crabs - make for excellent day trips. The traditional seaside resort of Hunstanton lies 16 miles away and offers a wonderful sandy beach, Sea Life Centre and pier (seasonal) with fun fair. The Royal Sandringham Estate and Museum, Holkham and Houghton Hall and Gardens, the priory and castle ruins of Castle Acre and Walsingham Abbey all offer a lovely day out. A theatre, shops, inns and cafés can be found at Kings Lynn and the beautiful city of Norwich is within an hour’s drive.

    Fantastic cottage, very clean and well kept. Lovely private indoor pool with spa and outdoor hot-tub. The owners had really thought about making our stay perfect. Play equipment for the kids, enclosed garden for the dogs (even dog beds and treats!). I would recommend this cottage to anyone.

    We booked the property for four adults and two dogs. When we arrived we were very impressed with the lay out and decor, however we sat down on the sofas and found very little support, sinking in and myself having mobility issues struggled to stand up from them. I ended up taking the tub chair from the bedroom which was a little better. The bathrooms well laid out nicely decorated. The kitchen was well laid out and most of the equipment OK. However the frying pan was old and not non stick, we had to buy two new ones, knives were blunt but I had brought my own. The fridge was a bit on the small side would've expected an American style fridge freezer with an ice maker for what we paid. The beds were lovely and comfortable but again very low and difficult for me to get up from. The swimming pool is a bit tired and faded the spa doesn't work, the hot tub was fine but could have been covered. All in all the property is okay, but for the price £1100 + for a week in April /May we expected more comfortable surroundings.

    Fabulous, really enjoyed the week. One minor point the pool temperature could be a degree or two higher for very small children

    What an amazing retreat. Perfect in every way. The bungalow is very clean, pool, hot tub and jacuzzi were such a treat. The bungalow is very well equipped and spacious. The kids loved it, as did the adults. Will definitely be booking to come back soon!

    Wensum Retreat gives you a relaxing break within luxurious surroundings. We benefited from the swimming & hot tub facilities. The cottage is remarkably clean and modern throughout, I loved that our dogs were made just as welcome with treats and bedding. Also you not no more than a 45 minutes drive to see other parts of Norfolk. Definitely go back and definitely recommend . Thank you Wensum Retreat for an amazing New Years with my family.
