Frequently Asked Questions

Hopefully these will help you, but just ask if you have any other questions at all


  1. Are dogs welcome? Yes, dogs are welcome to Glebe Farm Holiday Cottages. Please see our T&Cs for details on which dogs are welcome.

  1. Is electricity included? Both cottages are heated by electric radiators and Glebe Cottage has an additional oil-fired radiator. The cost of heating is included in the weekly rates.

  1. Is it safe for our children to play outside? Glebe Farm Holiday Cottages are surrounded by a large open gardens and acres of farmland beyond. We welcome your family to enjoy the space around them, unrestricted by the fences and roads of towns and cities, but we ask always that they are supervised and respect the Countryside Code. We are well away from any main road, and well set back from the lane. If you have any specific questions about the countryside around the farm, just ask John or Emily at the main house.

  1. How close is the parking to the Cottages? Both Rectory Cottage and Glebe Cottage enjoy parking spaces immediately adjacent to the cottages themselves.

  1. Is bed linen included? Yes, for all short lets, bed linen, tea towels and bathmats are included. You will need to bring your own towels and cot linen.

  1. I haven’t stayed self-catering before. What should I bring? In each kitchen there tends to be a small selection of essential cooking items such as oil and salt and pepper, as well as essential cleaning items like washing up liquid. Also tea bags, instant coffee and sugar are provided in the welcome box, plus fresh milk from our farm will be in the fridge. But all other items you should bring with you – common things I forget to take on holiday include hand soap and extra toilet rolls (we provide some to start you off). There is no dishwasher in either property I’m afraid, but there are washing machines so don’t forget washing powder or tablets.

  1. How close is the nearest pub? The Rose and Crown (no food) in Frettenham is 10 minutes walk, the Recruiting Sargeant in Horstead is a 5 minute drive.

  1. What about the church – is it noisy on Sunday? As you may guess from the names of our cottages, Glebe Farm is next door to the magnificent 13th Century St Swithins Church. There is a small but active congregation, but generally they can come and sing and go again and you would not know that they had been. Of course, you are more than welcome to attend services – service times are advertised in the Church porch.

  1. Are there many local walks? Yes! As many as your imagination and physical ability allow, from refreshing coastal strolls to woodland tramps, plus old canals and railways and ancient way-paths such as Weavers Way. From the cottages themselves, there are several good circular walks from 20 minutes to an hour in length – more than enough to entertain the dogs anyway. Maps are provided in the cottages, or ask John & Emily at the main house for directions.
