Ticked all the boxes - and then some.
Booked as we attended a wedding locally. Excellent local services - in my instance this included hair and beauty salons, florist and food outlets. Would definitely rebook at same place. Added bonus for us was little downstairs cloakroom, which wasn't previously mentioned - makes a big difference to have two loos!

Excellent in town location
We stayed in this cottage for a week in October 2016, as a base for the Peddar's Way - a 93-mile, long-distance walk. We were a party of four adults and two very small children (reducing in our numbers over the week), and this was a very enjoyable place for all concerned. The owner was very accommodating and friendly, lending us maps and providing us with information about local transport - all of which was very useful. Two stair gates were also provided, together with a high chair and cot. It is almost in the centre of Swaffham, with many facilities within walking distance, including an Asda. Tesco and Waitrose are close, but really require transport. Swaffham has passed its golden age, but has some charm, with a few interesting buildings, some independent shops, and the church is worth investigating. The cottage excelled our expectations. All the beds were very comfortable, including a sofa bed, and it was full of useful equipment. Central heating was excellent, as were the shower and wifi. The stairs are steep and may not suit anyone who has difficulty with stairs. It is situated right beside the pavement on a fairly busy road, but not much traffic passed during the night. The kitchen is long and thin, which is fine for two people, but can become crowded with four adults and two small children. The garden would be fine for children during summer months, and gates could be shut for smaller children. Parking is good, even including a very large open garage. The cottage was equipped with good quality sheets and linen. Although we have already walked past the Swaffham area on the Peddar's Way, we intend to return to this cottage, as it makes an ideal base. If it had been in a countryside location, we would have awarded five stars - but the price would probably have been much higher.

Lovely cottage. Really well appointed and very comfortable. Beds were fantastic. The owners was very welcoming and this along with the quality of the accommodation made this a really great place to stay. Manor Farm Cottage has every facility you could ever ask for really and the garden at the back is spacious so as we had the dog with us this was great. There was also a large common nearby and a few country paths that were also good for walking the dog.
Mr Stewart

Fantastic base for us to explore what Norfolk has to offer. We would not hesitate to book this cottage again.
Mr Porter

A great cottage, very homely, would definitely go back and recommend to others.
