Wighton nr Wells, North Norfolk
A fabulous brick and flint holiday cottage in a quiet village location with wonderful long distance open rural views and is within easy reach of Wells, Stiffkey, Blakeney and the North Norfolk coast.
Gallery Cottage is the annexe of the original village School House, which became the home of the sculptor Henry Moore in the 1920s.
The annexe was totally renovated in Spring 2018 and now stands proud in its own right as a very comfortable and stylish holiday cottage with two en suite bedrooms (double and twin), and an airy open plan living space, with exposed original brick and flint wall, overlooking the garden and fields beyond.
With an en suite bedroom on each floor, Gallery Cottage will appeal to couples, singles and friends who enjoy their privacy and independence.
It’s an ideal spot for walkers, bird watchers, and indeed artists and art lovers – though they might find the temptation of an art gallery next door a bit too hard to resist!
Wighton is a quiet village with easy access to the coast, the nearest resort being Wells-next-the Sea, just two miles away, with its bustling Quay, beautiful beach and independent shops and cafes.

An airy open plan living space, with exposed original brick and flint walls with far reaching open views.
Wighton has the feel of a proper village in a land of hamlets along secret lanes, and is surrounded by open farmland. Peaceful and pretty, the village is predominantly made up of brick and flint cottages and located midway between Little Walsingham and the popular coastal resort of Wells-next-the-Sea.
The village pub, The Carpenters Arms, is a popular destination for both locals and visitors and serves great locally sourced food, some of the best pizzas around, and a selection of real ales ‘on tap’. Wighton church is something of a landmark, sitting on a high rise, and can be seen for miles around.
