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.

Guest reviews

Wonderful, spacious, well laid out cottage that was very well equipped. Fluffy, soft towels and comfy beds. The location worked well for us, and we enjoyed some new Norfolk walks. Local pubs in Wighton and Warham were excellent. The homely, comfortable cottage, proximity of good foody pubs, view of the beautiful Swiss cows from the bedroom window, and glorious walking opportunities.

Lovely property, perfectly located for the local pub and exploring the coast.

The Duncan's, 5th of October 2023

A beautifully presented house in a lovely setting with excellent access to the North Norfolk coast and Holt. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and look forward to returning again. Simply, the peace and quiet of the cottage, along with the birds and local wildlife.

The Mason's, 28th of August 2023

Very nice location so convenient for Burnham Market,Holkham,Brancaster and Wells. Stay highlights Visiting Holkham and wandering about in Wells.

The Pike's, 22nd of August 2023

This was our third year at waterhall . The cottage is immaculate ,as is the garden. We have had a super week again . Swimming at Wells& crabbing.Coming back to the cottage every day is so relaxing. Making dinner in the kitchen is so easy with every utensil to hand . The only thing missing was an icecream scoop!Sitting in the garden was so tranquil& seeing all the little birds eating the peanuts, idyllic. A safe place for the children to play. The weather was a real bonus , sunshine every day, which meant we could be on the beach . The children loved swimming & collecting shells.The seal trip with Beans trips was fun & crabbing at Wells.
Thanks again

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.
