Wighton is an attractive rural village with many of the houses still owned by the Holkham estate. The local pub, The Carpenter's Arms, has undergone extensive refurbishment and has a great reputation for its food and ales. There is an art gallery in the village and it's home to the renowned Mrs Temple's Cheese Rooms which produce some delicious farmhouse cheeses which are hand made from the milk of their own cows. There's a range of flavours and textures including soft veined Binham Blue, crumbly Walsingham, Melton Mozarella, creamy Wighton and the flavoured Gouda type Warhans.
The village is now well known for it's spectacular Scarecrow Festival which is held each year over the May Bank Holiday - and for its live scarecrows that are pleased to greet everyone over that period!

The bustling seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea is only 2 miles away and the gorgeous sandy beach at Holkham and Victoria Hotel only 3 miles. Nearby are the picturesque villages of Binham and Stiffkey and the wonderful Wiverton fruit farm and cafe.

Excellent holiday base, good location and lovely outlook over the water meadows. Inside was a great surprise. Very roomy and with everything we could possible need. The kitchen is well equipped and very spacious. Comfortable settees in the lounge and TV reception also good. Comfy beds and loads of space for hanging clothes in the 2 main bedrooms. Heating also very good. Will definitely consider a return in the future.

The Byrne's, 19th of June 2023

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in 1 Waterhall Cottages. The cottage was very clean and roomy, the beds were very comfortable and we had all the facilities that we needed. The cottage was very well located for short car journeys to our favourite local places.

The Hannington's, 21st of October 2022

Beautiful cottage. Well equipped in a lovely peaceful setting. It was really relaxing. The cottage is well placed to be near attractions on the North Norfolk coast but is in a nice rural setting. Very relaxing.

The Windsor, 16th of September 2022

We have stayed here before and knew what to expect. We love the spaciousness and comfort. Settees and beds were very comfortable. The countryside views are lovely. Great ensuite facilities. A quiet, beautiful place to stay. We enjoyed staying in September 2020 and are already booked for October 2021. We still look forward to staying again.

Shelley Family, 21st of May 2021

Twydell Family, 4th of September 2020

The Gardners', 10th of July 2020

We have stayed here before and loved it! We like 1 Waterhall cottage as its spacious, homely and for it's situation. We simply love it!

May Family, 16th of August 2019

The cottage was spacious light and airy. Better than Expected 10 out of 10 for cleanliness and 10 out of 10 for the garden. Peaceful , spacious . Excellent stove, ovens and white goods. We would stay again!

Asher Family, 9th of August 2019

1 Waterhall Cottages was better than expected. Very homely and beautifully-furnished. It was spacious and attractive with very good kitchen facilities. An excellent cottage, with every bit as much charm as the older properties available through Sowerbys. The location is perfect for all the obvious holiday activities, and we would be pleased to return.

The Glickmans', 2nd of August 2019

It was super comfortable and had great views from the front and back of the house.
You don't get a sense of these views from the photos on line.
We had a wonderful time at 1 Waterhall Cottages - there were great views and lots of light from the front and back of the house,
Because of the amount of space and the additional study, there was lots of room for us to spread out - our children were revising for exams at the time.
The kitchen and dining area were particularly comfortable and the under-heated floor in the kitchen were a surprise and very much appreciated on the cold days that that we were in Norfolk.
The en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom was particularly spacious.
There were great walks from the house - to the Iron Age fort at Warham Camp for instance - and we enjoyed going to the local Carpenters' Arms.
We had a very enjoyable time as a family of five.

All Sowerbys holiday cottages are supplied with bed linen and towels and the cost of heating is included in the rental price.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug. This is not permitted because of fire regulations regarding wiring, earthing rods and voltage restrictions; it poses a serious fire risk to standard 13 amp sockets and there is a real danger that the body of the vehicle could become live.
