Bengate Barn Cottages - Perfectly located to explore all of Norfolk!

Within 15 minutes of the Norfolk Broads and the beautiful Norfolk Coastline (AONB), and a short 5 minute drive to the local market town, as well as easy access to many fantastic attractions, we are in a perfect location for walking and cycling holidays, or just to get away from it all, to relax and explore our wonderful county at leisure!

Surrounded by the beautiful Norfolk countryside and farmland, our three relaxing and spacious self-catering cottages are set within the grounds of our Grade 2 Listed thatched barn in the small sleepy hamlet of Bengate, part of the parish of Worstead, just outside of North Walsham, in North-East Norfolk, and can accommodate from 2-4 guests, ideal for couples, families or solo travellers.

Accommodation

The Cart Lodge - Sleeps 2/4 (+1)

The Cart Lodge - cosy, but spacious for 2-4 guests to relax in, or to explore the local area and beyond. The Cart Lodge is within the grounds of our thatched barn and is ideal for a couple, or family and friends to spend time together.

Go crabbing from the pier at Cromer, or rock pooling at East/West Runton

Spend a day in a woodland wonderland at BeWilderwood, or hire some bikes and follow a cycle trail around the Norfolk Broads and make your own adventures!

Or, just relax in, or outside of the cottage, playing board games or croquet on the lawn, talking or watching a film on a rainy day, as well as gazing up at the millions of stars on a clear night from the enclosed garden of The Cart Lodge with hot chocolates and cosy blankets. With no street lights nearby, there can be so many stars on a clear night during the Summer months, you can often see the haze of the Milky Way!!

Discover Norfolk - Our Local Area and Beyond

Set in a rural location down a country lane, just off of the A149, Bengate is a small rural hamlet within the parish of Worstead. Being here you have a sense of being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but you are within very easy reach of the North Norfolk coast, the Norfolk Broads and the city of Norwich, as well as all amenities in the local market towns of North Walsham, Aylsham, Wroxham and Stalham.

Just a short walk from the cottages is a path onto the Weaver's Way cycling and walking route which runs for 61 miles from Cromer to Great Yarmouth across farmland, coast and countryside, as well as Bacton Woods and the Marriot's Way cycle route being close by, so bring your walking boots, or cycle, or you can hire one locally which can be delivered and collected to/from the cottage.

Locally, the village of Worstead is 1.5 miles, and Dilham 2.5 miles, both with their own public house, we would recommend The Cross Keys at Dilham. The market town of North Walsham is within 3 miles, with supermarkets of Waitrose, Lidl and Sainsbury’s, alongside many independent stores, public houses, a leisure centre with swimming pool, as well as other amenities such as banks, a library, petrol station and a main post office.

Each cottage has its own Guest Information Folder with housekeeping information, local information and at a glance details on attractions, along with tourist information leaflets and maps of the area.

We are always happy to help with advice on the area, so if you have any questions before, or after booking a stay with us, please don’t hesitate to ask!
