Drive between the gate houses at the entrance to Felbrigg Hall and then down a woodland track to arrive at the Mustard Pot. Standing in its own large fenced garden, the cottage has been added to over the years but retains masses of charm and character with its octagonal shaped sitting room and bedroom above. There is direct access from the cottage to acres of park and woodland on the Felbrigg estate, with beaches and seaside towns just a few minutes drive away.

Things to see and do nearby

East Anglia, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

    The unique point of staying in a NT holiday cottage is location; behind on a NT estate and having the freedom to explore the grounds and go on long walks from your front door and then return home to a cosy cottage, is wonderful for both the children and the adults.

    Mustard Pot cottage is such a great place to unwind and get away from everyday problems. (So long as you ignore the traffic outside) But we mainly go for the area of Norfolk and the "Big sky's"you find in the county.

    Made enjoyable...

    The cottage was well looked after, peaceful, décor and furniture just right for the setting. We felt at home in somewhere special. A card and basic welcome pack appreciated. Staff at Felbrigg itself were really good, seemed to go that extra mile/have that extra passion for the place they were in, - we even invited one back because they'd heard of the cottage but never seen it - it was very secluded. You clearly chose people with the right 'mindset' and personal qualities when selecting staff and volunteers for this setting.
