Property details

Escape the hustle and bustle of the coast at this peaceful, rural retreat just a short drive away. The orangery,a rather unique place to stay, is set within the grounds of the Grade II listed Snettisham House, just outside the main village of Snettisham. A super little spot for a romantic getaway or would be perfect for a family. In keeping with an Orangery, the cottage has been tastefully decorated encompassing a botanical theme with rooms benefiting from full height sash windows overlooking the south facing garden. With calm neutral colours and cosy textures of beautiful wool throws and sheepskin rugs, you may feel tempted to just stay in and watch a DVD or read during the winter. In summer, you can relax in the secluded garden and enjoy a BBQ and a glass or two of wine! Why not venture along one of the many pretty walks or cycle rides from the cottage and be amazed at the dears grazing so close to this tranquil spot.

The luxurious accommodation for four people is on one level and has a beautifully furnished sitting room with vaulted ceiling - just the place to relax after a busy day exploring the stunning North Norfolk coastline. There is a newly fitted bathroom and kitchen which is very well equipped. Children are looked after with their own crockery, a plentiful toy basket and DVD's, high chair and bed rail (Upon request) and enclosed garden with lawn and gravel areas.

Perfectly located to explore the coast either to RSPB Snettisham or a day out on one of the many beaches nearby. If sailing is your passion, then Snettisham has a very active sailing club. Guests can either take a ten minute stroll to the popular Rose & crown gastro pub and village shops or walk to Snettisham Park farm which is just a stone's throw away. A bit further afield is the Queen's residence at Sandringham House - only a ten minute drive away.

The Cottage really is perfect for families, walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, artists or just those wanting to escape to a peaceful retreat.

The Orangery holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Snettisham is a coastal village to the south of Hunstanton, also home to the RSPB reserve on the coast of The Wash. Many migratory birds descend there during the winter months and the skeins of geese honking and clattering is one of the iconic Norfolk sights. Snettisham has a great pub, The Rose and Crown. It serves great food and an enclosed garden with a fab children's adventure play area. The village is well served with amenities including chemist, a local shop, hairdressers and second hand book shop, perfect for browsing away a couple of hours! There is a Bistro style restaurant, The Old Bank Cafe, on the market square; take your own wine at no extra charge. For the children, Park Farm is a lovely place to explore, with hands on experiences including a Deer safari on a tractor to see the herd of Red Deer roaming about. You are perfectly placed for the coast, Snettisham has its own beach just 2 miles from the centre of the village, Hunstanton is a 5 minute drive and Brancaster a 15 minute drive. Sandringham Estate, the Norfolk home to The Queen is just 10 minutes away.

Lovely cottage, everything we needed for us and the grandchildren. Weather was not so good but we found lots of things to do and visited Sandringham and Holkham Hall. Found nice places to eat and thank you for the welcome basket-lovely surprise.

Very sad to be going home after a wonderful week at The Orangery. The baked treats and wine were a lovely surprise-the kids said Norfolk has the best biscuits! The cottage was so well equipped and the toys (indoor and outdoor)were much played with. Thank you so much.

This place has everything that you could ever need to enjoy your getaway. The accommodation has everything. Great walks from the door, go and pick blackberries and apples from the many hedgerows. Nearby pubs - quality. Coast minutes away. Great beaches. Wildlife. The kitchen is amazing. Lovely home cooked treats on arrival. A truly wonderful week in the Orangery.

A true home from home with great attention to detail and quality furnishings. We enjoyed a fun filled week with our granddaughter and can highly recommend the Deer Park and Brancaster beach. The weather certainly helped and we ate outside every evening. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack.

A Peaceful Haven. The Orangery is a very well appointed and comfortable home from home with a garden which catches the sun for most of the day. It is set in a peaceful and quiet location a short distance from the village of Snettisham.

The Orangery is a quiet, peaceful comfortable accommodation, and we have much enjoyed our week’s stay and have every intention of returning at “Bird Time”.

Fabulous accommodation-impeccably clean with many appreciated personal touches. We feel thoroughly relaxed and recharged. Thank you for making this holiday memorable for all the right reasons.

The Orangery has been our holiday home for the 3rd year now. We are still so amazed by how much thought goes into making this a most comfortable and exquisite place to stay. Tucked away in this little oasis, it’s a beautiful retreat. We were greeted with a wonderful welcome. It’s amazing how each year we’ve discovered new places and how friendly the people of Norfolk are. This year’s highlights have been ‘Sandringham’. Had a good chat with the Vicar, who told us many Royal stories, and Eric’s Fish ‘n’ Chips at Thornham (you must try the homemade lemonade). We’ve again had a memorable stay and will be back for our 4th visit in the future. Thanks again.

Wonderful cottage. We recently stayed 3 nights at Orangery with our 2 grandchildren. The accommodation was spotlessly clean beautifully presented and very well equipped especially the kitchen. We enjoyed the garden. I feel the accommodation is perfect for couple or small family but would be a bit of a squeeze for 4 adults as 2nd bedroom is small.We hope to come back for longer next year.

A peaceful holiday home in rural surroundings. We had a lovely relaxing break at The Orangery.

The Orangery is a little piece of paradise in Norfolk. The property is stunning, and all the extra special touches, like the welcome basket make it so special.We have really enjoyed our weekend break. The Orangery is so well located to loads of different tourist sites. We had lovely meals at The Rose and Crown (Snettisham) and some interesting walks back after a couple of ciders (or more…) Thank you so much, we will be back and will recommend to family and friends.

There is only one word for The Orangery: Imm-ac-u-late! Superbly equipped and decorated. All designed for a relaxing, care free weeks’ holiday. We were fortunate that the weather was excellent - warm and mostly sunny so we were able to do lots of walking and cycling. We also sampled most of the local pubs, all of which produced delicious food. We will be back! Lastly, many thanks for the lemon drizzle cake and other goodies, they were much appreciated.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Orangery-a very luxurious cottage with all mod cons and some lovely welcoming touches of homemade goodies, wine and milk which were much appreciated. The location is perfect and very peaceful but close enough to walk into Snettisham. We enjoyed several visits to the Rose and Crown- eating at the Restaurant there on one occasion, which was delicious. Thanks for making this such a lovely place to stay.

The Orangery was perfect for us in every way. We went as a couple with our 2 and a half year old child. It's all on one level, has an enclosed garden, set in a remote location (bliss), but just a short drive away from lots of places. A lovely surprise awaited us when we arrived, a homemade cake, biscuits and a bottle of wine. All delicious! The accommodation is well thought out, finished to a high standard and the kitchen is so well equipped. We were so lucky to be there in beautiful weather. Once little one was asleep we sat out in the garden listening to nothing but sheep and birds whilst having a few glasses of wine. None of us wanted to go home, and we'll definitely return.

Cree family, June 2017

Our second visit to this idyllic Orangery. We are still amazed as to how much thought and care has gone into creating this beautiful hideaway. This year we discovered Houghton Hall, its a must!
