Acorn Cottage is a delightful rural escape. Peacefully situated on the edge of the National Trust Blickling Hall Estate, on the outskirts of Oulton village and close to the market town of Aylsham (2 miles).
Tuck yourself away in this romantic retreat, sympathetically restored to offer you a special place to stay in Norfolk as well as being a good base to explore National Trust properties, the Norfolk Broads, countryside and coast.
A detached, single storey hidden gem, set within its own informal garden, enjoying views over a quintessential English vista of oak trees and meadows.
There are great places to eat close by and lots to discover.
What a wonderful idyllic place to while away the summer hours- we loved it so much we couldn’t help but wish we belonged here!”
Enter into the spacious living room with full height pitched beamed roof, complete with a wood-burning stove for cosy nights in. French doors open onto the raised deck and rear garden with views over the meadow.

Leading off the living room, the single bedroom/dressing Room gives access to the traditionally styled bathroom with basin, WC & bath with mixer.
