Our Norfolk Location

A Norfolk Base near Hilgay

Set in the heart of the Big Skies of the Norfolk Countryside, the Coach House is a stunning retreat on a private country estate, perfect for family get-togethers and small groups. Found at the end of its own sweeping driveway on the edge of the peaceful riverside village of Hilgay, a few miles south of Downham Market, it is an idyllic country getaway. An ideal base for touring East Anglia, positioned close to Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, 90 minutes by train to London and a short drive from the glorious beaches of the beautiful Norfolk Coastline, one week is never enough!
