Pinkleton was a traditional Norfolk farm cottage, built by the Holkham estate in 1875, which has been extensively refurbished by its owners (who are professional interior designers) and transformed into a beautifully presented second home, with a French country style influence. Downstairs there's a charming sitting/dining room with an open working fireplace and a cottage style well-equipped kitchen. Upstairs are 3 lovely bedrooms: a wonderful master bedroom with open rural views, a pretty twin room and a bunk room ideal for children, plus a family bathroom. Outside there is a safe enclosed garden, mainly lawned, with garden furniture and a barbecue. It is located in a rural hamlet, just over a mile from the renowned Walsingham Farm Shop and the Norfolk Riddle restaurant. The coastal seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea is only 5 minutes drive away, with Holkham 10 minutes away and Burnham Market within 15 minutes.

Floorplan

Village

A small hamlet of a village that lies between Walsingham and South Creake. You will be excused for not knowing about this tiny village as there are less than dozen houses in total. The farmland that surrounds the village is mainly owned by the Holkham Estate, much of the village as we see it today was owned by the estate. In 1873  Holkham Estate built farmworkers cottages and in recent years most have become private dwellings. The Church of St Edmund is a ruin that sits on a mound in the village and it a Grade II listed building.

History

This unknown village was one of Norfolk's lost villages as it almost ceased to exist in 1538 after the Dissolution of Monasteries. The king granted the manor house and the patronage of the church to Sir James Boleyn. Seventy years later on there was only one house remaining in the village. There is a former RAF Airfield in Egmere originally a secret WWII bomber base on the former RAF North Creake Airfield.

Visit

This is a wonderful area with nearby Walsingham village steeped in history and enchantment to the east, with its renowned Walsingham farm shop and sacred shrines to discover. The wonderful coastal town of Wells-next the-Sea with its glorious sandy beaches is less than 10 minutes drive away and there is a lot to explore. Take a day trip to Holkham Hall and gardens and spot the deer roaming near the lake, or head to Morston and enjoy a seal trip followed by a tasty pub lunch at the Anchor Inn.

Our days in Norfolk

I really enjoyed our days in Pinkleton Cottage because I thought it was really fun and the beds were really nice especially with my brother. I love it here so so so much. I loved the chairs and benches outside.

The Fairels and Hancocks., 6th of March 2015

Thank you for providing a beautiful base for our first holiday in Norfolk. It has been an absolute treat. We loved Pinkleton Cottage and enjoyed visiting lots of local places of interest. The cream on the cake was the weather.

A very happy and memorable holiday.

The Bunces, 6th of March 2015

What a peaceful week we have had. We love the way the house is decorated.

We have had lazy afternoon BBQs and love the accessibility to Wells, Burnham, Blakeney etc. Quaint little house but big enough for our needs.

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.
