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 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.
