Itteringham, Aylsham, Norfolk, East Anglia, England
Swallow Cottage is located in the peaceful and picturesque grounds of Itteringham Mill, 2 minutes from The Walpole Arms, a much awarded gastro-pub and 6 minutes from possibly the oldest continuously operated village shop in the country (now run as a community shop). Only 10 miles from the coast (Sheringham) and about 12 miles from the Broads (Wroxham) it is conveniently close to both but far enough away to avoid the crowds. Our guests come here to enjoy the peace and quiet and the abundant wildlife. We have seen nearly 60 species of birds in the garden, including kingfishers and little egrets. The river is a magnet for wildlife and it is always a great buzz to see a visiting otter. If you're planning on visiting with young children please remember the river is unfenced.<BR>North Norfolk is a real gem offering a fantastic var... Read more

Attending a family gathering in Weybourne we chose Swallow Cottage just 10 miles or so inland as somewhere we could relax away from the hussle and bussle of the coastal resort . We were not disappointed. The cottage,which sits in the lovely extensive 4+acres grounds...More

This pleasant conversion is located close to the owners' impressive mill house in a quiet rural location with extensive private grounds. There is ample parking and the mill grounds can be explored at will - very picturesque and calming: rivers, mill-ponds, bridges, a 'tame' pheasant,...More

Hi Viv Thanks for your review. I entirely agree with your comment about the cottage being "a bit dowdy". You'll be please to know we have already started addressing this with a new carpet and brighter decoration in the upstairs bedroom/bathroom and replacement of the...More

About the neighbourhood
North Norfolk is a hidden gem, and our part of it is particularly attractive, with gently rolling hills, fields, woodland and unspoilt coast, some of which is designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The woods around us are full of bluebells early in the year, and May is the rhododendron season with Sheringham Park particularly famous for its display. The River Bure, which flows through our grounds is a spring-fed chalk stream bordered with willow, ash and alder and supporting stands of natural watercress. Otters have become a more common sight over the last few years. There are many fine churches and stately homes within a short drive as well as some more unusual places to visit such as the Amazonia Zoo just outside Cromer. Our area is crossed by many public footpaths allow... more

How to get there
Airport: Norwich International: 18.0 km
Railway: Norwich: 22.0 km
From London: take M11 then A11 (there are currently road works outside Thetford to add an additional carriageway to the only part of the A11 that had not been dual-carriageway). Nearing Norwich take the outer ring road following signs to Airport and Cromer A140. Try to avoid the ring road at rush hour. Come off the ring road at signs for Cromer and Airport. Pass the airport and continue on A140 to Aylsham. Leave A140 to drive through Aylsham, passing through the centre of the town and continuing on the Blickling Road. Look out for Blickling Hall on your right. Two miles on from Blickling Hall take right turn, signed Itteringham (you may also see a sign for the Village Shop and the Walpole Arms). Just before the village at a junction with the Walpole Arms on your right, cross the ju... more
