Apple Tree Cottage bursts with wonder. With portions of this idyllic Grade-II listed luxury self-catering cottage dating back to the 15th century, it now boasts traditional beamed walls and ceilings, brass and iron bed frames, and plenty more pastoral touches to immerse families and groups of friends in the richness of its rustic heritage.

Country charm

Charm and rusticity truly are the immediate themes here at Apple Tree Cottage, beginning with the kitchen/dining room down a few steps from the entrance lobby. Featuring an electric range cooker in the large inglenook fireplace, pamment tile floors and dark-stained wood, the kitchen then follows a narrow, winding staircase up to the sitting room on the first floor. There, guests can enjoy the full magic of this magnificently refurbished cottage. The vaulted ceiling, the exposed beams, the deep, comfortable seating, and the views over the village will surely soothe your soul.

Through the kitchen is an intimately secluded courtyard where lovebirds can share a nice glass of wine and dine al fresco after a leisurely day on the nearby Boudicca Way trail, or fishing out on the Taswood Lakes. Holidays are all about treating yourself, though, and the village of Stoke Holy Cross offers fine dining for those evenings you want to go all out.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

With two quaint double bedrooms – one on each floor – Apple Tree Cottage is as perfect for families as it is for couples looking for a romantic escape. The double room on the first floor sits under the eaves of the house and has a view over the village, while the double room on the ground floor, with its beamed ceiling and walls, sits alongside the family bathroom and looks over the cosy little front garden.


A travel cot and highchair are available on request upon booking. Please be aware that there is a steep, narrow-tread Norfolk winder staircase to the first floor, which is unlikely to be suitable for toddlers or those with mobility problems.


Lovely little cottage. Location perfect for us as we live in the village everything we needed for a wonderful Christmas. Lovely welcome from property owners Stephen and Chris.

David P,

We've enjoyed every minute of our lovely, relaxing break here at Apple Tree. The cottage os full of charm and so cosy. We would recommend Sunday lunch at Stoke Mill which is approx 5 miles away.

Yvonne H,

Beautiful accommodation, such an exceptional cottage and we settled in very quickly. We visited Aylsham and Sheringham and had evening fish and chips from nearby long stratton. We loved Wroxham and had some great walks with Vinnie the dog! Thankyou for the amazing cake, such a lovely surprise!

Katrina H,

Thankyou so much for being so kind and welcoming Chris and Stephen. We have all enjoyed our three weeks at your lovely cottage, so much character and warmth. We will certainly be recommending your beautiful cottage to friends and family! Thankyou so much for all your help and advice.

Ruth P,

A delightful cottage, beautiful, authentic and interesting. Well decorated with lots to look at inside and out, perfect for our elderly dog. We enjoyed lots of local walks, in Norwich and Wroxham as well as further afield.

A little gem in a beautiful location. Apple Tree is a cottage with an abundance of character and charm, at the same time very well equipped. Thankyou Chris and Stephen for being so welcoming and helpful.
