About Swallow Cottage

Swallow Cottage 1 and 2 in Wickmere

Part of a pair of charming properties situated in the hamlet of Wickmere this cosy cottage is ideal for both couples and small families.

Whether you’re building up stamina with a hearty breakfast or enjoying your evening meal with a glass of wine the beautiful country-style kitchen/diner with its exposed beams and traditional stone pammented floor is an ideal place to break bread together. Fully equipped with modern oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher & an automatic washer/dryer you won’t want to eat out!

The warm, inviting living room is comfortably furnished in a rustic style enhanced by the impressive inglenook fireplace and log-burner – ideal for curling up in front of on a chilly night!

A modern digital television and DVD player are supplied whilst elegant French doors open out onto the attractive gardens and amazing views over the Norfolk meadowlands. Balmy summer evenings can be spent enjoying the sunshine whilst you make good use of the BBQ and garden furniture supplied…

Upstairs are two generous cottage bedrooms, both tastefully decorated with pleasant wood furniture and polished floorboards. The master bedroom features a large, Victorian-style iron bedstead – plump and inviting you to enjoy a good night’s rest! The second bedroom has the advantage of offering either two good-sized twins or joined to make a king-size bed.

The family sized bathroom indulges guests with a bath and separate shower to give you a choice of bathing options and is attractively part wood panelled. Another WC and wash-basin can also be found downstairs.

Together with Swallow Cottage 2 these attractive and memorable rural cottages are also suitable for larger groups who would like to holiday jointly.

Some might describe quiet, picturesque Wickmere as more of a hamlet rather than a village – many of its few cottages were in fact built to provide accommodation for workers on the Wolterton Estate. This was once the family seat of the Walpoles – specifically Horatio Walpole, younger brother of the famous British Prime Minister, Robert Walpole. Wolterton Hall itself is said to be haunted by ‘The White Lady’ – said to be a member of the Scamler family she appears to warn of trouble or a death in the family!

The name Wickmere actually translates as ‘Lake by a dairy farm’ – with the ‘mere’ part of it being particularly redolent of a watery theme. However, since its foundation in pre-Norman conquest times it has grown from obscurity into a beautiful North Norfolk village much beloved by its inhabitants.
