Situated just a few miles from the traditional market town of Fakenham, Swallows Return is a beautiful holiday home that provides the perfect blend of modern style in an idyllic rural location. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and sitting along the River Wensum in the village of Colkirk, this property is in a superb location for enjoying the coast and surrounding countryside. Swallows Return is located on a small farm with horses, donkeys, hens and Norfolk Terriers making it a perfect countryside retreat.

An idyllic place to relax and unwind no matter what the season, this lovely little property is perfect for long weekend breaks or weeks away with family or friends. From the clearly signed ample parking area, one enters the property into the modern open-plan living area, which benefits from beautifully comfortable soft furnishings and a lovely little log burner. With a large coffee table, luxurious sofa with matching lounge chair including plenty of lamps and mirrors, this living area is an open and airy space that still feels warm and cosy, just what you need for relaxing after a long day exploring the local area. The sitting room has stunning, uninterupted far reaching views out of the bi-fold doors onto surrounding countryside where the donkeys and horses graze in the adjacent field!

The modern kitchen at Swallows Return is extremely well equipped with everything you would expect to have in a high-quality holiday let. In a separate utility room, there is a washer-dryer, ironing board and hoover. Located in between the kitchen area and the living room, there is a dining table, perfect for entertaining whilst cooking!

Upstairs you will find the master bedroom with its luxurious kingsize bed, dressing table and ample wardrobe space. This master bedroom has far reaching views from a huge picture window of the surrounding countryside, the perfect outlook for lazy mornings to sit in bed with a cup of tea!

The versatile second bedroom has a zip and link bed, which can either be made up as a kingsize or as two single beds (please give us 2 weeks notice of your preference) so whether you are coming as a family of up to four or two couples the bed arrangements can be set up to suit. Both bedrooms share a family bathroom with a large bathtub and luxurious power shower. 

The outside space is delightful and unique. Swallows Return offers a private, south facing courtyard with outside seating and a large lawned area to use with views across to the donkeys in the field. The owners kindly provide a croquet set and other outdoor games for guests use, and a luxurious hot tub which is wonderful all year round! 

Swallows Return is located 2 miles from Fakenham racecourse where they have use of a golf course and tennis courts, perfect for summer! There are many footpaths close to the cottage, and a village pub is only half a miles picturesque walk away. This wonderfully located cottage is ideal for families or couples who want to have a peaceful countryside getaway!
