The Experience

Plucked straight from the pages of a story book, with its pretty wrap-around garden and gorgeous interiors, you will be planning your return before you’ve even left!

In their tender and sympathetic restoration, the owners have picked beautiful artwork and fabrics to offset the Farrow and Ball walls, which give this gorgeous English country cottage a sprinkle of magic.

Situated in the village of Raynham, a mile south of East Raynham, the ancient family seat of Turnip Townsend, this beautiful Grade II listed property retains much of its original character, including wooden shutters, Norfolk pamment stone floors and stripped floor boards.

Step inside and you will be greeted by a welcoming dining hall and galleried landing with wooden staircase to the first floor. Head through and you’ll come across a relaxing sitting room with log burner.

Beyond that you’ll find a bespoke fitted kitchen with SMEG fridge/freezer and electric range oven, whilst upstairs you’ll discover a lovely king-sized master bedroom with separate (and rather indulgent) contemporary bathroom and separate shower.

Next door the second double bedroom also boasts its own large bathroom, with traditional roll-top bath. Plus, there’s a further ground floor shower room too.

When winter nights are on the agenda, Gamekeeper’s Lodge offers a cosy haven for lovebirds, couples or families to return to. Light the log burner, snuggle down and warm your toes in front of the fire before planning the next days events.

Great stay!

We had a great stay at Gamekeepers Lodge which has been beautifully renovated. The property is an ideal place to go with a dog as it is totally secure. It is situated on a main road which can be noisy and there isn’t much within walking distance but it is ideally placed for driving to the coast. Make sure you visit Holt and Burnham Market.

Nestling in the heart of the North West Norfolk countryside, South Raynham is a small historic village, approximately six miles from Fakenham and just a short drive to the beautiful North Norfolk coast.

The church, St Margaret’s was first built in the 11th century and extended in the 14th century and is used occasionally now. The RAF once had a base two miles from West Raynham from the 1930s, but this closed in the 1990’s.

With wonderful walks down the River Wensum from the adjoining village of West Raynham, there are beautiful trails on the doorstep and plenty of wildlife to see.

Offering seclusion and peace and quiet this village is close to some great places to eat including The Dabbling Duck at Great Massingham and The Crown Inn at Rudham.
