This medieval site has been lovingly restored, and has a picture perfect exterior providing a warm welcome to your relaxing break. Set in 35 acres of private grounds, which include an on-site fishing lake, licensed wedding venue, a medieval banqueting hall and a bridal suite, Fig Tree Cottage (ref: UKC1175) and Walnut Cottage (ref: UKC1176) provide the perfect base for discerning guests to explore the beautiful county of Royal Norfolk. Those wishing to explore on foot will make good use of the grounds, which are great for walks and watching wildlife.
