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.

Notes for guests

Access: The accessibility guide is for guidance only. For up to date photos, please see the images on the webpage.

The cottage is single storey but there are 2 steps leading up into the kitchen/diner and from the bedrooms down to the bathroom so the cottage is not suitable for wheelchair users. 

Access through the gate to the cottage is a public walk way and must be kept clear at all times. The walk way leads into the Felbrigg Estate. 

Heating: Air source central heating is provided. This system has been installed as part of our renewable energy programme.

Parking: For two cars adjacent to the cottage,

Garden: A private garden. The garden is not fully enclosed and so you may want to supervise young children. 

Please note: There is a Field Study Centre opposite and there can be some noise from children during the day and early evening.

Offers: Holiday cottage guests have free entry to all National Trust properties during the period of their stay.  Full details in the confirmation email upon booking.

Guests will benefit from a late Sunday checkout of 12pm at this cottage.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
