One of four properties with a unique history dating back to World War 2 and beautiful period furniture throughout. This is great for families with a good size enclosed garden with lawn and seating.

Discover the rich history and charm of Norfolk with a stay at this unique former World War II property, formerly used by officers of the US Air Force. The quirky location features mural paintings on the walls—painted by officers—and a water tower which proudly sits on the complex of four properties. Set in the peaceful countryside with an abundance of quiet lanes and footpaths, keen walkers and their canine companions will be spoilt for choice. Sleeping three, it’s perfect for couples or small families.

Find everything you need for a home-away-from-home stay, with thoughtful details throughout. Enjoy quality time together in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner beneath the exposed beams, savouring a lazy breakfast at the dining table or snuggling beside the wood burner-effect gas fire. Discover a treasure trove of history in the hallway, where two bikes which were left by US servicemen after the war are suspended on the walls. Take in the breathtaking countryside views from the enclosed lawned area, relaxing on the patio for a BBQ dinner as Rover and Fido go mutts for the fresh Norfolk air. After a busy day exploring on foot, enjoy a much-needed good night’s sleep in the impeccably styled romantic king-size bedroom. There’s also a single bedroom. Outside there is off-road parking for two cars.

The property’s countryside setting offers a huge amount of options for a day of exploration and adventure. No trip to the area is complete without a trip to the unmissable Norfolk Broads (30 miles), where you can hire a launch or join a charter to explore waterways. The National Trust properties at Blickling (26 miles) and Oxburgh Hall (21 miles) both welcome friendly hounds, while forest trails, footpaths and plenty of sticks to chase await at Thetford Forest (18.5 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Quarters Cottages are a couple of miles out of the way, but not isolated, and this added to our enjoyment of the break. The equipment is fine and all that we needed. The cottage was warm and comfortble and Mr & Mrs Adams, the owners, are kind and friendly folks and very helpul. We enjoyed our break and look forward to visiting again

The location was perfect for a quiet holiday retreat, everything we needed was provided and the cottage was very comfortable and absolutely spotless. It made a perfect base to explore the Norfolk countryside and villages.

A lovely cosy well presented clean and bright cottage. Very much home from home. The garden was a brilliant size and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves. With the garden being fenced in we had no worries they would get out and they were totally safe. We are going back in May.

Superb in every way, beautifully finished, a credit to the owners. Quiet location, a bit out of the way but this made it very peaceful. Our 'Goldy' loved the garden which is very well kept and totally enclosed. Five stars with no reservations.

The cottages was spacious and had excellent heating and double glazing. The furnishings were first class. Parking was adjacent to the cottage and there was a large garden and a patio with seating for warmer weather. Everything was supplied so all we had to do was buy food. The owners were friendly and kept a low profile. The history of the site gavRead moree it an added interest. Hide
