River cottage is an idyllic 19th century, brick and flint rural retreat. The village Castle Acre takes it's name from the Norman castle built in the 12th-century. It lies four miles north of the historic market town of Swaffham. The village is at the point where the River Nar is crossed by an ancient route - Peddars Way. There is much to visit in Castle Acre: the castle, Cluniac Priory, tea house, gastro pub, yoga centre with walks & cycle routes on your door step.

The space

The kitchen is well equipped opening into a conservatory with garden views. The kitchen leads to a utility room with a washing machine and tumble drier. There is an open fire in the central snug which opens into a cosy living room on one side and a dining room on the other. There are 3 double bedrooms one with an en suite bathroom and a separate family bathroom.
The landscaped garden leads down to the River Nar which is a spring-fed chalk stream. There is a drive which can accommodate up to 3 cars.

Guest access

Guests can use the entire cottage, gardens and riverside. There is outdoor furniture, an outside toilet and wood store. Access will be available into the garage where there are garden cushions and barbecue. Some bikes can be made available by prior arrangement.

Other things to note

Access to first floor is only by spiral staircase so may not be suitable for all guests. Care should be taken by the small river at end of the garden.

A lovely cottage in a great place. Everything we needed for our stay. Even though there isn't a TV there we didn't really notice and it was nice to be away from the norm. Garden is beautiful with steam at the end.

We had a really great weekend here. Beautiful garden and lawns down to a clear stream. We pretty much spent the whole Bank Holiday in the garden!

Wonderful house in a fantastic location. Made to feel welcome from our host (although we didn't actually get to meet in person). Everything was in great order and we had a very relaxing couple of days.
