Spent a week here while cycling in Thedford forest and Brandon Country park. The location was ideal for us, we had a Tesco delivery of all the food and drink we needed for the week, and the house has plenty of space to spread out. I had no idea about the importance of Brandon and the flint industry until I did a bit of Googling.
The Plantation was absolutely fantastic; much more than we imagined it would be. Situated in large gardens and woodland, it provided a quiet, much welcomed sanctuary for our holiday. The cottage is built onto the owner’s property and we were lucky enough to meet Sorrel and her lovely Mum when they were staying for a few days. The property is cosy and full of antiques and art work. There was plenty of room for two adults and our two teenage girls, with lots of space to relax and unwind. The Plantation is located in a very very quiet location with the nearest town and supermarket at Swaffham about 5 miles away. There are no shops any closer so if you forget something from your groceries, it’s a long drive to go back. The attractions of the Norfolk coast and National Trust are all approximately 50 minutes to an hour away which was a little further than we expected so a car is needed if you want to visit the tourist areas. We were lucky to visit during the spell of hot weather and made the most of sitting and eating outside in the lovely grounds. In conclusion, we would highly recommend this property and will definitely be going back.
