The Experience

A delightful & unique four bedroom holiday retreat that sits amongst 200 acres of private Norfolk woodland.

Restored in 2016, the property has lost none of its individuality and charm and the old stables have been converted into what is now.

The established woodland which surrounds Bear’s Cottage contains many famous specimen trees, planted in the 1850’s and the woods harbour an abundance of flora and fauna, with over 10 miles of private paths and tracks to cycle, ride in or explore, allowing you to completely get back to nature.

The location of Bear’s Cottage is rare and you will revel in the complete privacy it provides; tucked away down a one mile private driveway.

There is no doubt that the children will delight in exploring the private woods, but you will also fall in love with Bear’s Cottage.

The old stables have been converted into what is now a large kitchen and open plan living space.

The house now offers all the modern conveniences and luxuries you could wish for, with a large open plan kitchen, dining, living area with vaulted ceiling and beams, wooden floorboards and bi-fold doors opening up onto the lawned garden and woodland beyond.

At the front of the house there is a cosy snug with woodburner, where you can relax on an evening, plus a practical downstairs shower room and a separate utility room.

Bring your bikes, bring your dogs and come with a deep desire to discover more about nature and a strong willingness to let go, unwind and enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation

We had a fantastic stay here and we couldn't fault the property. Our family had such a nice time and set in great grounds and so peaceful. Will be returning!

Bear’s Cottage sits alone in 200 acres of private woodland in North Norfolk.

It holds one of the most unique locations within the region and provides total peace, isolation and calm. Approached via a one mile private gravel driveway, this beautiful remote and tranquil retreat will enchant you from the moment you arrive.

The wonderful private woodland surrounding Bears Cottage contains some of the largest and oldest of their species in the country. The woodlands age and diversity gives it a huge array of flora and fauna and guests have private access to the whole woodland by foot and bicycle (not provided) and can also explore the 8 miles of tracks that intersect it.
