One of four properties, it offers four bedrooms and is generously decorated with beautiful furniture which provides a unique retreat with fascinating history dating back to World War II.

History tells us the officers have painted a set of murals on the walls which the current owners have lovingly preserved to provide a unique insight into life in World War 2. Tucked away just outside of Cranworth, near Dereham, the buildings were used as officers’ quarters during the Second World War and would see senior servicemen plan their operations and watch the aircraft taking off and coming into land at Shipdham Airfield. The location is nestled in the Norfolk countryside and there are plenty footpaths explore from the very doorstep. The Norfolk Broads are also within reach for a day trip. For those seeking more coastal pursuits, head to Hunstanton with its beach that goes on for miles and all the fun of the fair.

Our family traveled from the USA to attend a family reunion in a nearby village. These accommodations were perfect for us. The home is clean, modern, spacious, well equipped, and centrally located in East Anglia for an easy drive to the Seaside or to London. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Amazing WWII USAAF history. Perfect.

Fantastic property, every bit as good as stated on the website. Everything you need in a holiday home and more is provided and the welcome pack was very much appreciated. We found the owners Mr & Mrs Adams were throughout our stay very friendly, informative and helpful. We hope to stay again and have already recommended to family and friends.

Eight Ball Cottage is the best rental property we have stayed in. The decor is tasteful, and the antique and modern mixture of the furnishings is well above what we expected. If you want a centrally located quiet luxury cottage in Norfolk you would be hard pressed to find a better set of cottages

Reviewed by Sheila, 3rd August 2018

Truly wonderful location, the bungalow was clean, comfortable and provided everything for a much needed holiday. The owners were so friendly, and the history of the bungalows, and the pictures and artefacts gave it an air of mystery. And if you want to see the most spectacular sunsets Eight Ball House is the place to be.
