Deep in the heart of Norfolk, less than two hours from London and within easy reach of the North Norfolk coast, this beautifully appointed holiday home is an ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of a busy life. This property is self-contained and makes up half of this spacious barn-style building (the other side is not rented out but sometimes used by the owners). The cottage has a light-filled, well equipped kitchen and a large yet comfortable living room with a wood burning stove. Positioned in an oak wood planted by the owner's grandfather over 100 years ago you are free to venture and wander in the woodland. Only 5 miles from the market town of Swaffham and a few minutes drive to the beautiful Oxborough Hall, it is the perfect location to enjoy the very best of the English countryside.

About Sorrel Bradley
My grandmother was brought up in this area and my mother used to come here for all her holidays. All the family help with the upkeep and love spending time here.
Why Sorrel Bradley chose Beachamwell
This holiday home was built on land that has been in the family for generations. It was the plantation for the old estate and in the good old days it only had a small shed for the carpenter and his men to work. As a family we love coming to this spot and hope it will remain in the family for many generations to come. We love people to come and enjoy this peaceful locations with beautiful walks and surrounding countryside.
What makes this Cottage unique
For us the best things are the space, the quiet, the wonderful walks straight out of the front door. For the children they love the climbing frame, the playhouse and the sunken trampoline. The coast is only half an hour away which makes it really easy to go on day trips and yet not have to cope with all the tourists that gather there. As a family we love the big open skies of Norfolk that you can see come rain or shine.

Tranquil and beautiful
The Plantation was absolutely fantastic; much more than we imagined it would be. Situated in large gardens and woodland, it provided a quiet, much welcomed sanctuary for our holiday. The cottage is built onto the owner’s property and we were lucky enough to meet Sorrel and her lovely Mum when they were staying for a few days. The property is cosy and full of antiques and art work. There was plenty of room for two adults and our two teenage girls, with lots of space to relax and unwind. The Plantation is located in a very very quiet location with the nearest town and supermarket at Swaffham about 5 miles away. There are no shops any closer so if you forget something from your groceries, it’s a long drive to go back. The attractions of the Norfolk coast and National Trust are all approximately 50 minutes to an hour away which was a little further than we expected so a car is needed if you want to visit the tourist areas. We were lucky to visit during the spell of hot weather and made the most of sitting and eating outside in the lovely grounds. In conclusion, we would highly recommend this property and will definitely be going back.
Love the property and the grounds wow. Second time for us and can't wait to go back
Nice relaxing holiday in a lovely accommodation
Great location and fantastic accommodation. Lovely peaceful setting which is an ideal base to explore the surrounding areas as well as just enjoy some time to just relax.
Perfect place for us to take my mum who suffers with agoraphobia, as its not on a camp site or in a built up area she can enjoy the holiday as well.
Owners are very friendly and helpful.
This was our second holiday there and would definitely return.
Short stay at the Plantation
We had a lovely few days at the Plantation at Beachamwell. Everything we needed was available and we especially enjoyed the quiet of the countryside.
Lovely house in beautiful surroundings
We spend a very cold and foggy week here at Easter, but the weather couldn't dampen our stay. The area is beautiful, with lovely walks. If it had been warm and sunny, we would have been in heaven, sitting out in the garden, enjoying the wonderful surroundings. The house is very comfortable - we are always very relieved when the beds are super comfy, which they were. We didn't want to go home! Thank you Sorrel, we had a super stay.
