Wighton Holiday Cottages

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 is now open, rapidly gaining a great reputation. 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.
