Loved the house and area and are planning to revisit the property

“Castle Acre is one of the loveliest villages in England - we highly recommend it. It's so picturesque, has a great & friendly convenience store and pub, and the ruins, wow! Cockleshells is the most perfect place to stay for groups up to 6. We were blown away by both the cosiness and spaciousness. The lounge room is enormous and well stocked with dvd's. The kitchen has everything you could need. The cutlery, plates, pots & pans etc are plentiful. The three bedrooms were comfy and warm. Gorgeous bath and shower (with good power). The cottage is a delightful step back in time, with low ceilings, exposed beams, windy staircase all the way up to the twin bedroom attic. There are games, books etc. It all overlooks a very romantic graveyard (spot the cat) and church - all right in the middle of the village. We just loved everything about this stay. Thanks so much.”

We had a couple of queries that we wanted clearing up before we arrived, these queries were dealt with very quickly, professionally and efficiently by the staff at Norfolk Cottages. Castle Acre is a lovely place and the location of Cockleshells could not be bettered, It is an extremely quiet and relaxing place, in fact Cockleshells and the immediate area around the property is a lot nicer than it looks on the website (and it looks lovely on the website). All in all a great place to relax and unwind .

A wonderful start to 2019! Such a cosy, warm cottage. Great walking and a couple of fun evenings at The Ostrich, jigsaws, Scrabble and films!

Cockleshells is a warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage and Castle Acre is a very friendly village. The food at the the village pub and cafe is excellent and there is also a very well stocked shop. Norfolk Country Cottages made the whole experience, from booking to leaving, very easy - would definitely recommend.
