About Game Keeper's Cottage

Nestling on the edge of woodland, this Felbrigg cottage offers a peaceful Norfolk getaway.

Gamekeepers Cottage is an unusual single storey, detached cottage, formerly a lodge of the 17th-century Felbrigg Hall. Located on the edge of woodland, the cottage boasts a grand brick façade and a large, wild garden.

Enjoy immediate access to a wooded lakeside path and head out for a stroll before breakfast. Later, explore some of the longer walking routes that criss-cross the impressive Felbrigg Estate. 

With the Norfolk Broads just 20 miles away, there’s no excuse not explore this unique landscape. Jump in a boat and discover the Broads from the water, or stick to dry land and see how many bird species you can spot in the area rich in wildlife.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
