Property details

Gamekeeper’s Lodge is a romantic fairytale luxury cottage for four in South Raynham, just a 20 minute drive to the coast. In their tender and sympathetic restoration, the owners have picked beautiful artwork and fabrics to offset the Farrow and Ball walls, which give this gorgeous English country cottage a sprinkle of magic.

Situated in the village of Raynham, a mile south of East Raynham, the ancient family seat of Turnip Townsend, this beautiful Grade II listed property retains much of its original character, including wooden shutters, Norfolk pamment stone floors and stripped floor boards.

Plucked straight from the pages of a story book, with its pretty wrap-around garden and gorgeous interiors, you will be planning your return before you’ve even left! The property boasts some very indulgent features and mod cons (including an Alexa), yet maintains an 18th century feel. Decorated in muted greys, lavenders and greens throughout it offers a relaxed and stylish place to stay.

A long soak in one of the two roll-top baths and then a good night's sleep in one of the sumptuous beds with their 2000 sprung mattresses and 800 thread count linens, will make for a divine end to the day.

Suitable for walkers, bird watchers, or lovebirds, this gorgeous retreat is sure to cast its spell over you.

Surrounding local area

Nestling in the heart of the North West Norfolk countryside, South Raynham is a small historic village, approximately six miles from Fakenham and just a short drive to the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
The church, St Margaret’s was first built in the 11th century and extended in the 14th century and is used occasionally now.
The RAF once had a base two miles from West Raynham from the 1930s, but this closed in the 1990’s.
The fabulous Raynham Hall just outside the village, was built in 1619 by Sir Roger Townsend. This estate covers 7000 acres and occupies the first seven miles of the Wensum River. It is one of the oldest buildings in Norfolk and is heavily inspired by European architecture and was the home of the Townsend family for more than 300 years.
With wonderful walks down the River Wensum from the adjoining village of West Raynham, there are beautiful trails on the doorstep and plenty of wildlife to see. Offering seclusion and peace and quiet this village is close to some great places to eat including The Dabbling Duck at Great Massingham and The Crown Inn at Rudham.
The nearby market town of Fakenham has a variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, cinema, bowling alley, golf and race course and of course the North Norfolk coast with its beautiful beaches and RSPB nature reserves, and seals at Blakeney point is only a short 20-30 minute drive away.
On sunny mornings, you may want to take the scenic walk along the river Wensum on the West Raynham Estate, before heading to the Dabbling Duck in Great Massingham for lunch ... who knows you may spot a member of the Royal family who frequent this area.
Culture vultures will love its proximity to the numerous stately homes; including Houghton Hall, Holkham Hall, HM The Queen's Sandringham Estate or Oxburgh Hall.
