Stable Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
Situated in the rural hamlet of West End close to Bradenham in the heart of Norfolk, this cosy conversion of a former stable block is only two miles from the lovely village of Necton. With three bedrooms – one ground floor double and two twins in the eaves – this cottage is able to sleep a total of six people so is ideal for a family. The property also comes with the shared use of three and a half acres of landscaped gardens with a stream – ideal for a summer-evening stroll, a picnic or ball games.

In the heart of Norfolk the thriving village of Necton is situated between the market towns of Swaffham and Dereham. This lovely location, dominated by its impressive Norman church boasting a beautiful carved oak communion table dating back to 1086 and a wonderful Jacobean pulpit, is home to a welcoming pub with restaurant, a village store with butchers and a post office. The fine Georgian house of Bradenham Hall is close by and with over 27 acres of beautiful gardens and a spectacular arboretum - apparently visited by the famous Lord Nelson – is well worth a visit, as is the infamousPeddars Way. The Norfolk Coastal Path is a 93 mile trail through the picturesque Norfolk countryside - great for walking, cycling and horse riding.

Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Jelfs
June 2019
The cottage was very nice in a good area and the grounds were very nice.. The owners of the cottage were very nice and helpful and overall a good place to have a break.

Little bit more remote than we realised.. But all good. Would go back. Would recommend.
Mrs Camplisson

Nicely equipped house and toasty warm, which was lovely as we have frozen in others! We were three adults, 4 yr old and a baby and I think that capacity was pretty good. The stairs are more of a ladder and there is not space for a stair gate so I would recommend it for older children.

Stable Cottage is a beautiful place to spend a relaxing week.. It is very isolated and has lovely walks around the property. Inside is warm and cosy with plenty of space to spread out.

A truly lovely cottage, beautifully and tastefully renovated with every thing we needed and more.. We loved the log fire and magestic beams throughout. It rained a lot, but this didn't worry us as we got the chance to enjoy the beautiful property. A shop and pub within walking distance, Comfy bedroom with 2 further bedrooms above a narrow slightly steep stairway. A grand showroom of a kitchen. And lovely hosts who made us feel welcome. Will return.

The Stable cottage was ideally suited to visit several National Trust and English Heritage place, which as members of both National Trust and English Heritage meant we got full use of our membership card.. We have already recommended Sykes Cottages to several people, as we always get good accommodation through booking with you.

No, all very good..
Mr Gordon
June 2018
We have had holidays at a number of cottages over the last 10 years and it was a slight disappointment that they was no welcome pack at the Stables, I know this may seem trivial, but you will no doubt agree, that the pack is not important, but the Welcome is..
Mr Butland
May 2018
Very enjoyable stay at this property.. Would suggest that a little more detail on the steep steps (actually a metal ladder) and the second Child bedroom (floor level Beds) would be helpful.
Ms Roberts

The cottage was well equipped and the location was beautiful.. Despite extremely cold weather the cottage felt cosy and warm. The log burner was an added bonus.

What a fabulous place! A fantastic place to get away from it all and wonderful for families. The kids loved collecting eggs and meeting the horses. The owners could not have been more helpful.The cottage is beautiful and furnished to a high standard. The photos really don't do it justice. Dogs are welcome, which is an added bonus. 100% recommend and will definitely go again.

Stable Cottage is nice and warm, the kitchen was excellent.
Mrs Davies
December 2014
The cottage itself was wonderful. We were there at the beginning of December and it was very warm and cosy. The kitchen/sitting area was large but so were the radiators, and the wood burning stove could be lit if you wanted to stay up very late or just because it looked so pretty. The kitchen was a joy to use, the table was well sized and there were plenty of pots/pans/cutlery so that we could make full use of the dishwasher. The main bedroom on the ground floor is large and the double bed very comfortable. The upstairs bedrooms are gorgeous and are set in the eaves. Indeed, the cottage was so well provided with everything you could need to stay there, so certainly don't think of packing the kitchen sink. The owners have got it just right. They are very pleasant and would have sorted problems if we'd had any, but they really let us feel that the cottage was our 'home' for the time we were there.
Mrs Miller
October 2014
Very impressed with the Cottage. We had a very comfortable relaxing stay, the Cottage was fitted to a very good standard indeed. The location was really good too.
Mr Stevenson

This was an ideal location for our party and ourselves. The hosts were so accommodating; it was thoroughly idyllic to us.
July 2014
A great place to relax in the wonderful countryside! The Cottage met all our expectations and for sure the descriptions on the website. A wonderful base camp to explore the region.
Mrs Wood

The cottage was situated in a good position for travelling around Norfolk and was well appointed.
Mrs Merridue

The property was well equipped, pet friendly, warm and comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, which helped to make the holiday. Plenty of room and a paddock to exercise the dogs. The location was peaceful and idyllic, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Miss Nagy

Thought the cottage was lovely. Very cosy with a great country feel. The owners were very friendly and quick to sort any problems we had. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.
Mrs Hooper

The owners were most welcoming when we arrived and we felt right at home straight away. The cottage was quiet and in a lovely location. We had everything we needed for a great holiday. The owners had even put up a Christmas tree for us.
Mr Bell
December 2013
The whole family enjoyed the holiday very much. The cottage was so relaxing, warm and spacious, exactly as we had seen advertised on the web, 10 out of 10. There was plenty to see and do around the area. We love this part of the country, and will be looking forward to coming over again.
Mr Barratt

Very stylish barn conversion. Well stocked with everything you could want and need. Clean, tasteful, quiet and stylish.

This cottage is a converted stable but has a lot of mod-cons while keeping that old country cottage feel. It was hard to find as it really is in the middle of nowhere(used sat nav but still had trouble) We had 3 generations staying (ages 8-70) The kitchen/living room is very open and quite large. The eaves bedroom is perfect for young kids. The stairs are a little steep. The cottage is surrounded by farmland and fields with horses and chickens. There were fresh eggs and produce available for purchase everyday (reasonably priced too). When we arrived, the owners had provided milk, tea and cookies, which was a nice touch. There was also leaflets and maps for days out. The cottage is about 40 mins from a lot of Norfolk attractions. Things I didn't like - there was no phone (travelling from abroad, we didn't have cell phones) or WiFi. It was also very hot so a fan would have been nice. And there were not many plugs near a mirror. My family were impressed with the cottage and have already recommended it to others.
Miss Humberstone
August 2013
It was very peaceful. The cottage was of a very high standard. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The children loved the animals. The rooms were spacious and there was plenty of space for 6 of us.
Mrs Howson

This property is very well appointed. It was the best property we have stayed in that has everything you could possibly need. The decor and furnishings are very well chosen.
Mr Saunders

It you want a comfortable, stylish, well equipped and spotlessly clean holiday cottage in Norfolk, then Stable Cottage is just what your looking for. It was always warm and homely.
Mrs Norrington
November 2012
We had comfort and a very relaxing time. No problems at all with the booking and the cottage was excellent. We would stay there again.
Mrs Travis

My eight year old loved the kids bedroom and there was a window that he could open and look down into where we were sitting.
Miss Hinkles
August 2012
We loved everything about this cottage, the inside was brilliant very well set out which made it very relaxing. The grounds were massive which our little boy loved to run around and see all the animals.

Mrs Whitewood

Mrs Brooks
July 2012
The property is in a very peaceful location and although The Stables is connected to the owners property which is occupied, we felt able to relax and were not unduly disturbed.
Mr Handford
July 2012
A property with lovely character in a peaceful location, very spacious, clean and well presented. A nice outdoor space with private secure patio garden. Very good base to explore the whole of Norfolk from - a central location with good road links in all directions. Very peaceful and no disturbance from other properties.
Miss Birch
December 2011
Beautiful cottage/ barn conversion in a very comfortable, peaceful environment. We were very happy that children and dog were also welcome. We had a wonderful time and would definitely return. Many thanks.
September 2011
The location was great for accessing all parts of Norfolk. The property was immaculate, the owners lovely and the facilities good.A tumble drier would have made it totally complete. The only comment would be that the third bedroom is really only suitable for very young small children.
Mrs Bermingham
July 2011
The position was good, the accommodation good and the owners very friendly.
Mrs Witham
May 2011
An ideal holiday for children with a liking for animals. Friendly owners, nice country side and not over commercialised.
Mr Leigh

Mrs Appel

Mrs Clarke

Cottage very peaceful. Ideal location for exploring Norfolk. 'The Windmill' pub in Necton was fabulous for food.
Mr Burman
August 2010
Lovely cottage that was well situated for getting out and about and exploring Norfolk. Nice and quiet location that was great for us all to relax.
July 2010
We were very much impressed by the warm welcome received, and the freshly laid eggs left in the traditional country cottage kitchen were a nice touch! The beautifully landscaped gardens, with trampoline and friendly family dog make you feel like it's a home from home. Our 3 year old loved the setting, and often asks to go back! We have promised her that we will as we all enjoyed the beautifully decorated Cottage and our stay so much. If we could swap our life in the city for the perfect country get-a-way, we would pick this beautifully finished cottage...
Ms Hatton
June 2010
The cottage owners were very friendly and helpful. Lovely area and some great places to walk the dogs and cycle, particularly nearby Thetford forest.
Mrs Gallacher
June 2010
A beautiful cottage that had everything you could possibly think of needing. The owners were extremely helpful and always at hand for any queries. Certainly a 'home from home' experience.
Miss David
May 2010
We were made to feel very welcome, and certainly like it was a home from home. It was by far the best family holiday we have had. Our daughter is 3 1/2 and she was perfectly happy running through the grounds, bouncing on the trampoline, playing with the dog and petting the horse. I would very highly recommend this cottage, the photos do not do it justice! Thank you!
Mr Wilks
May 2010
Overall, fantastic cottage!
May 2010
This is one of the most highly refurbished cottages we have stayed in. We regularly travel with our dogs and therefore, have not always had such a lovely property! Its so refreshing look forward to getting home to enjoy the lovely open plan kitchen and eat and drink together! This was a super base to see the local area too with supermarkets a short car drive away to stock up! Based on a small holding, there are horses and chickens to see and its all on the flat therefore lovely for my disabled mother to look around too! You can even buy eggs from the owner to have for breakfast. You wont get fresher!! We would definately consider it for a summer break and would enjoy relaxing at the cottage as well as popping out!
Ms McShea

The property was lovely. It oozes a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere on entering.
Miss Haynes
March 2010
The cottage is in a great location to explore the Norfolk area. The cottage is stunning and the interior is the best I have seen. The grounds are also lovely and if it were closer to my home, would bring along my horse too!
December 2009
Excellent cottage in good surroundings. Probably the best holiday cottage that I've stayed at in the UK. Equipped and furnished to a very standard. Spacious fully equipped kitchen with range style cooker and large american style fridge freezer. Well placed in central norfolk so easy to get around to all the sites. Only gripe if staying longer would have been the lack of a shower as there is only a (very nice) old fashioned bath and sink.
Mr Mrs Penwill

A very well equipped, warm and comfortable cottage which was away from it all.
Mrs Bryson

Mrs Webb

The lovely surroundings with plenty for the children to do. The private outside seating area with lots of space to eat outside. The house was a pleasure to be in.
