About The Squire's Retreat

This elegant four-bedroom apartment on the Felbrigg Estate is a converted former laundry.

Experience the elegance of life at the heart of the grand Felbrigg estate in this spacious four-bedroom apartment. 'The Retreat' was created from a conversion of the former laundry wing for the last of the Felbrigg Squires when the austerity of winters in the Hall became too much. The interiors are in keeping with its 17th-century elegance and the four-poster beds add a little luxury to your stay. Step through its French doors directly out to the West Garden with its ornate brick summer house.

 

There are lots of waymarked trails around the estate for you to follow, as well as a walled garden and parkland lake to explore. As a guest you’re invited to discover the elegant country house of the estate, Felbrigg Hall, free of charge.

 

Beyond the estate walls, North Norfolk’s heritage coast can be reached within a 10-minute drive. Head to Cromer for its sandy beach, 500 ft pier and links to the Norfolk Coast path. For a slightly wilder coastal scene, drive 30 minutes to Blakeney National Nature Reserve, where you’ll discover its unspoilt sand dunes, marshes and rare 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 through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. 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.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC 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 is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

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 sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
