The Hayloft

Saham Hills, Thetford, IP25 7FB

Cottage Details

The Hayloft is one of three cottages in a lovingly restored historic building, dating from 1862. They can be booked together and sleep ten people in total, or a couple or small family can book just one property.

Up to four well-behaved pets are welcome, and dogs will love to run around in the large paddock shared between the three cottages. The owner can provide a dog sitting service.


Finish to a high standard throughout, the cottage features original beams and some original flooring. Gas central heating and a wood burner in the sitting room make this an ideal getaway throughout the year.

The kitchen/diner is well-equipped, with oven, microwave and fridge/freezer, and there is a washer/drier in the utility area.

The cosy sitting room with its wood burner, television, DVD player and Playstation, is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring the area.

The two super king-size bedrooms (one of which can be a twin on request) are comfortable, and are decorated in keeping with the style of the building. The bathroom has a bath and separate shower. Bed linen and towels are included in the rent.

A very pleasant place to stay for a few days, the dog particularly enjoyed the safe paddock to run around in…
