About Caroline Sanderson
We farm here with our 2 young sons who love growing up here in the Norfolk countryside. We enjoy all the space here, walking the dogs, cycling and riding our horses on the miles of forestry tracks and also sail on the coast.
Caroline Sanderson purchased this Cottage in 1949
Why Caroline Sanderson chose Swaffham
Oak Tree Cottage is in the middle of our family farm. We grow wheat, barley and potatoes, asparagus as well as lamb so a real mixed farm. The cottage is 1 mile from our farm house with open views all around. Your closest neighbours are the local roe deer! The cottage is well equipped for a family holiday in the country. Please be aware that this is a working farm and its in the countryside so there can be hooting, oinking, baaing on occasions and tractors passing by. We are also just a few miles from RAF Marham so you may see some jets too. Although this is one of the driest areas in the country there can be mud during wet periods. We do allow dogs with permission so please do ask - and if you are allergic then please do take into consideration that even though the house is thoroughly cleaned between visits and pets are not allowed upstairs or on the furniture if you are very sensitive then please consider.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is detached and has open aspects all round. There is a large garden and paddock which is all fenced. Good dogs are welcome but please ask us first! It's about half hour to drive to the coast but there are miles of tracks from the cottage for cycling and walking. We can help plan your days and give you lots of ideas for what to do and where our favourite places are. Mostly this is a unique opportunity to enjoy the Breckland countryside.

Wonderful cottage ideal location for a holiday
The cottage is wonderful, located in the heart of the farm estate, quiet and tranquil providing a great base to explore Norfolk. The cottage itself caters for every need, cosy yet big enough for a large family. Also provides a safe, secure location for your best friend with four legs.
The owners were excellent hosts and if your lucky with your timing you may even get to go on the combine harvester.
Highly recommended for a peaceful stress free break.
Really nice to have you to stay and thanks so much for leaving the cottage so tidy!! You can definitely come again!
Fabulous cottage surrounded by nature!
We had a great time in Oak Tree Cottage, it was the perfect holiday with 4 children-lots of space for them to run around and play outside, with lots of nature to explore around the cottage. Daily walks to look at the pigs next to the cottage were enjoyed by all. It was the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily city life and enjoy family time together. We explored some local attractions, namely Bewilderwood, Thetford Forest, Go Ape, Kings Lynn and Hunstanton.
The cake and bread waiting for us upon arrival were a lovely welcome!
We hope to go back soon!
Lovely break in a great setting
A lovely weeks holiday in a great setting. Very private and secure garden for the dogs. Lots of great walks straight from the house too. Many thanks too for the lovely scones. Greg and Linda Portman
Beautiful Oak Tree Cottage
Oak Tree Cottage was everything we hoped for, quiet, peaceful and relaxing. It was very nice to walk in and see a lovely bunch of fresh flowers, cake and asparagus left for us by the owner Caroline. The garden was very safe for our 2.5 year old granddaughter. She loved the outdoor swing, tractor and lawnmower and the whole experience of staying in the cottage.
The cottage was well equipped, had everything we needed and the beds were so comfortable.
Would definitely stay again
An idyllic cottage and location
We had a fantastic time. The cottage is well appointed,cosy and surrounded by farm land.
Caroline left us the most wonderful cake which we hugely enjoyed. We would love to go back.
What a great location
Arrived with parents, child and two dogs, trust the instructions for getting there it is truly in the middle of nowhere, absolutely fantastic location, great walks for the dogs, quiet and peaceful, we even sat and listened to the Turtle Dove. Arrived to a scrummy Victoria Sponge made by Harriet which was most welcome.
No neighbours, completely safe for children and dogs, a great holiday, will certainly be booking up again.
Thanks for the review and it was a pleasure to have you all stay.
Harriets cakes are always a hit! Plus we do offer seasonal farm produce as and when it is available. Look forward to seeing you again. Caroline x
