Located on a complex with history dating back to World War II. It’s decorated with unique furniture to provide a special and charming Norfolk country escape, and this property is perfect for couples.

Tucked away just outside of Cranworth, near Dereham, the buildings were used as officers’ quarters during the Second World War and would see senior servicemen plan their operations and watch the aircraft taking off and coming into land at Shipdham Airfield. Nearby Thetford Forest offers forest trails, walks and cycle rides, and of course, the opportunity to enjoy nature and the local wildlife. The Norfolk Broads are also within reach for a day trip and you can hire a launch or join a charter and explore along with a guide. For those seeking more coastal pursuits, head to Hunstanton with its beach that goes on for miles and all the fun of the fair.

Stepping into the property you come to the light and airy kitchen with electric oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The useful utility room offers a washing machine and tumble dryer. Following on to the lounge/diner with comfortable reclining sofa and chair which is perfect to relax and unwind in front of the TV. There is a dining area which is a great spot for breakfast to fuel a good day sight seeing. The romantic king-size bedroom offers a stunning French upholstered bed which is complimented by the neighbouring antique marble top washstand. Finally there is shower room with shower and WC.

The secluded patio area has garden furniture and is a great spot for a BBQ. There is a lawned area and off-road parking for two cars.

This property can be booked with Eight  Ball, Wingate and Lemon Drop cottage to sleep a maximum of 17 people.

Lovely cosy cottage for two, quiet location ideal for a restful getaway.

Reviewed by Tim 10th July 2019

The owners were very pleasant and considerate. The cottage very tastefully decorated it was like staying in a suite in a very good hotel. Little touches like the wine and delicious chocolate biscuits in the fridge added to the experience.

We stayed at Leon Cottage for 4 nights, very clean, fully equipped kitchen. Lovely comfortable bed, very quiet location a bit isolated more than we would have liked. The travel instructions to the cottage were a bit confusing.

Really nice cottage, we were made to feel very welcome including the dog. Everything we needed, washing machine and dryer was a big bonus. The secure garden was also great so we did not have to worry about dog when outside.

Reviewed by Steven 13th April 2019

A lovely cottage in a great location. Made to feel welcome from the start & the welcome pack of Prosecco, milk, biscuits & dog treats for the hound really impressed us. Cottage was lovely, clean & really comfortable. We will definitely be back. 5 stars.

Reviewed by Wendy 29th March 2019

It was a lovely 5* holiday accommodation. The bonus is that it is also dog friendly with lovely grassed areas. Everything about the accommodation inside and outside was perfect - it really does warrant the 5* rating.

Reviewed by Dorothy 22nd March 2019

It was a lovely little place, very comfortable and the owners very helpful. Really recommend
