“Fabulous cottage for half term”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Great location for exploring Norfolk. Within easy reach of National Trust properties too and not that far from the coast either. When not out our two young children had lots to amuse themselves with - e.g. a pony ride for our daughter and a pedal tractor for our son - courtesy of our hosts as well as being able to explore the farm (with mummy and daddy of course!). Accommodation good and toys also there for our children. Generous welcome pack - cake, basics and fresh in-season veg and fruit too. We will come again and would recommend to others as well.

“Perfect location”

Oak Tree Cottage is surrounded by countryside, and the spacious garden with patio is ideal for sitting out and enjoying the tranquillity. The cottage has an amazing dining room and kitchen with loads of space, complemented by a cosy lounge with a wood burner, perfect for evenings. In fact everything about this place is perfect. Home made cake, asparagus, honey and hand picked flowers greeted us on arrival. Near to the coast and Thetford Forest, great pubs nearby serving fantastic food, we wish we could have stayed longer.

“Peace and tranquility”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

If you are looking for a rural retreat in Norfolk, look no further!

This was our first visit to Oak Tree Cottage but certainly will not be our last. It offers perfect peace and tranquility whilst still being within easy reach of "civilisation". The owners, Tom and Caroline, are the nicest couple you could meet and nothing is too much trouble for them to ensure your holiday is memorable. This is on top of running a very large multi-faceted farm and farm shop almost single handed!

We arrived during the very busy asparagus season (their farm is renowned for its asparagus) so we were lucky enough to sample it! Not only that, but Caroline had taken the trouble to make a gluten free cake to greet us. (Even better than we have ever achieved and at her first attempt!) Although being at the centre of all Beachamwell village activities, nothing was ever too much trouble for them (despite the asparagus season pressures) and we even got a personal tour of their lovely garden!

Whilst the weather was colder than normal for the time of year, the cottage was always warm and cosy, the South facing patio is a real sun trap in the late afternoon.

There is a toy box for the children, chalks and slab in the garden for drawing pictures, an extensive collection of books, fiction plus reference, and very interesting publications on the local area. (I was fascinated to read that rabbit warrens were man-made and a status symbol!).

It has all the facilities one could ask for plus, just a few hundred yards up the lane, a "mini-farm", Keeper's Cottage, with two pigs, four lambs, lots of chickens and a goose. Just the thing for children .... of any age!

Not only that but the Keeper's wife makes scrumptious cakes to order!

We are already looking forward to our next visit and have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone. In fact we are hoping to entice our children/grandchildren there to enjoy all that this special property has to offer.

Oh, and if you are into wildlife, the garden has its own resident mole who logs its daily progress across the lawn, just to see whether you can ever catch sight of him/her! We never did!

What a perfect spot.

“Cosy and Peaceful”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband, myself, our boys and in laws stayed in this beautiful cottage for half term. The cottage is very welcoming and is in a rural and very peaceful location. The owners we're lovely and very accommodating. Inside the cottage you will find three good sized bedrooms and a fabulous bathroom. Downstairs has a very good size kitchen and open plan diner. The outside space is lovely for the kids to play and to have a barbecue. The cottage is very clean and a real home from home. Lots to do in the surrounding area, we had a very enjoyable holiday and would definitely like to stay again in the future.

“Tranquility!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed in this fantastic cottage during April and May. So comfortable and cosy with everything you could ask for and a fab kitchen too. We slept so well - the sound of silence was wonderful. Caroline and Tom couldn't do enough for us. Helpful and friendly - so nice. Lovely walks and plenty things to do and see nearby if you wish. Simply can't recommend Oak Tree Cottage enough!
