Cottage of the Week – The Strawhouse at Manor Mews, Norfolk

The warm weather, Andy Murray winning the tennis, summer holidays…there are plenty of reasons to celebrate at the moment, but where to go for your revelry? Well, clearly you want a nice location: somewhere scenic, fairly centrally located so friends from all over the UK can attend, and you’re going to want somewhere large enough so everyone can get together to celebrate, but private enough to allow people their own space.

We’re receiving lots of enquiries for larger properties over the summer so we’re more than happy to share the properties at Manor Mews, Norfolk with you. The pictures on this article are from The Strawhouse which sleeps 10 but you will find plenty more places and spaces on site – including The Sheepshed and Feedhouse which both sleep 2, The Milking Parlour, Strawhouse and Hayloft (sleeping 4), The Piggery and The Old Dairy (sleeping 6) and the largest property, The Manor House, sleeping 22.

Nestled together on a working farm these beautifully restored buildings retain a wealth of traditional charms whilst offering a host of contemporary style and comfort. Each cottage boasts its own enclosed garden and they all enjoy access to the surrounding countryside, where gentle walking, cycling and bird watching are popular pastimes. The on-site beauty salon and personal catering service are another bonus to ensure you relax completely – and look fabulous while you do it!

The surrounding area isn’t short of attractions either. Just 12 miles away is the famous sandy coastline which includes Holkham, Brancaster, RSPB Titchwell and Wells-next-the-Sea, home to a little narrow gauge railway that carries passengers the 1-mile journey to and from the sandy beach, as well as interesting shops, ice cream parlours, cafés, a famous whelk stall, theatre, restaurants and pubs. Walsingham, site of the famous Shrine, and the Burnhams, with their close associations with Admiral Nelson, are also a close delight.

Seal watching boat trips depart from several picturesque fishing villages along the coast, the lovely harbour at Blakeney is a joy to visit and there are countless pubs serving freshly caught local seafood. Fakenham, 5 miles, draws numerous visitors to the races and its friendly weekly market, and the Georgian town of Holt boasts fine, independent shops, and the Norfolk lavender fields are always popular.
