Owl Cottage in Norfolk

Owl Cottage is a lovely brick and flint cottage which has been renovated and refurbished throughout by its new owners (work completed April 2012) to make a contemporary holiday home. Downstairs has been opened up to create an open plan kitchen/living area with doors opening onto the garden. Upstairs there are 3 comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom, making this a perfect cottage for a family or 2 couples.

Owl Cottage is quietly located in the village of Warham in Norfolk, backing onto Holkham estate land with lovely open views, only minutes walk from the local pub and less than 2 miles from the beautiful coast and the stunning walk at Warham marshes. The bustling coastal town of Wells-nest-the-Sea is only 5 minutes drive away.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. It is so tastefully furnished with all the creature comforts making it a delightful home from home. We will be back!!!

Do... see... eat & drink

Here’s just a taster of things you can do in this wonderful county.

...must do

Miles and miles of walks
Norfolk can boast coast, country, fen and forest walking, and all set within an easy, rolling landscape. Enjoy tramping through golden leaves and woodlands in the autumn, or take a brisk walk in the frosty winter.  Spring and summer are spectacular with colourful wild flowers and sun-washed sandy beaches.

Walk up a good thirst…

Got to go crabbing
A beautiful and historic seaside resort, Wells Next The Sea is a great location for an English countryside vacation. The area around Wells provides opportunities for sightseeing, water sports, bird watching, country walks and plenty of family fun. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has lots to offer.

Where are they nipping?

Don’t forget your bike!
There are miles of seafronts and quiet coastal roads to explore. Make the most of Norfolk’s beautiful countryside and keep fit.  Cyclists love North Norfolk because of its consistent terrain, off-road routes and quiet country lanes.  Be sure not to miss the ever-growing Pedal Norfolk event at Holkham each year in May.

Wells/Holkham circuit…

Visit Holkham Estate
Holkham is still privately owned, and is the centre of a thriving 25,000-acre agricultural estate; providing resources to maintain the house, and to ensure that the social fabric of rural life remains.

Enjoy Holkham Estate…

...must see

Hang out with the seals
You really must go and see the seals. The colony at Blakeney (just 7 miles away from the cottage) can be seen all year round and is made up of Common and Grey seals and numbers around 500.  The seals are very inquisitive and often pop up and swim around the boats.

She saw some small smelly seals on the sea shore…

The beach at Holkham
Holkham Beach with its endless expanse of beach, offers visitors the opportunity to walk for as many miles as they choose.

Sand between your toes…

Holkham Nature Reserve

Holkham National Nature Reserve is a spectacular 11-mile stretch of fragile windswept coastline, including a maze of creeks and marshes, unspoilt sand dunes and tranquil pine forests.  Holkham Estate and Natural England jointly manage all the terrestrial habitats.

Discover nature’s finest…

Get Twitching
Norfolk is described as ‘the bird watching capital of Britain’. From Oyster Catchers to duck and geese, they ‘flock’ here.
