This semi detached cottage for 3 people is located in the centre of the market town of Wymondham in Norfolk making this cottage an ideal base for visiting the historic city of Norwich and the world famous Norfolk Broads.

Firkin Cottage is a beautifully decorated semi-detached holiday home featuring stripped wood floors, exposed beams and a pretty courtyard with a garden room and water feature. This charming cottage nestles in an “Olde Worlde” lane in the heart of Wymondham. The town draws visitors because of its impressive architecture, dominated by the 12th Century Abbey and a striking Norman cathedral. The cobbled streets are lined with incredible Tudor buildings, restaurants and hospitable pubs, and during the summer the locals open their gardens to the public. The city of Norwich is nine miles away, with its medieval alleys, winding lanes and constant round of music, art and beer festivals. A shopper’s heaven, Norwich is acknowledged as one of the top five shopping centres in the UK, with its choice of eclectic shops and big name stores.


The quality of everything in the cottage was second to none. You wanted for nothing; the owner had provided everything you could need, from butter dish to first aid kit. The place was spotless and the garden, although small was perfectly formed and tended beautifully. There was always lots of hot water and the bathroom was a delight. The location of the cottage was great. The owner was simply the best, the most helpful of people and only a phone call away if needed. I would recommend Firkin Cottage in a heartbeat. It was probably the cleanest place I have ever stayed in.
Mrs Dicker

Firkin Cottage was a lovely little cottage, with everything you could possibly want. The position of the cottage was in an ideal position, just off the high street of a wonderful little town with very friendly people. We had a very warm welcome. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anybody.
Mrs Hayward

A lovely cottage which we've now stayed in 3 times. It's a home from home, so comfortable, quiet and welcoming.
Rev Hobbs

It had all the home comforts with loads of character. We were made to feel very welcome.
Mr Twomey

This is a fantastic cottage and a wonderful place to stay. We could not have been made more welcome, everything we could have ever needed was available to us. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, we will definitely be returning and I am looking forward to it. Thank you!
