The Perfect Escape
We strive to be one of the best places to stay on the North Norfolk Coast. With commanding views over the village of Sedgeford to the Norfolk Coast on a clear day you can see across the Wash to Lincolnshire. Old Hunstanton, Holme-next-Sea, Thornham, Brancaster, Burnham Market and Sandringham are all close by. We also have a sister property at Anna’s House in Thornham. You can find out more here.
How to Find Us
Magazine Wood is in a very secluded location hence sat-nav will not bring you directly to our door. Most systems will however get you to Magazine Cottage (PE36 5LW) a building at the top of the hill on the outskirts of the village that looks like an old chapel but is in fact a gunpowder magazine. Magazine Cottage, the old armoury, stands at the entrance of Peddars Way that leads directly to Magazine Wood.
Approaching from: King’s Lynn/ Cambridge
From King’s Lynn go approximately 13 miles North on A149 towards Hunstanton. At Heacham after you pass a BP garage on the right you will come to a set of traffic lights by Norfolk Lavender. Turn right here onto the Sedgeford road, in the village the road goes past the war memorial followed by a sharp left hand turn out towards Docking. As you leave Sedgeford at the top of the hill look for a chapel style building “Magazine Cottage” on the left hand side. The turning onto Peddars Way and up to Magazine Wood is immediately before this building up a narrow metal road.
N.B The King’s Lynn/Hunstanton road (A149) like much of the Norfolk coast gets very busy in summer time. Map readers like locals can cut across to Sedgeford from the adjacent village of Snettisham near Dersingham about 5 miles short of Hunstanton. Sat-nav systems seem unable to compute this route.
Approaching from: Norwich/South Norfolk Aim for Fakenham and then take A148 towards King’s Lynn. Approximately 5 miles after Fakenham take B1454 signposted Docking and Hunstanton. You will enter Sedgeford approximately 3 miles after passing through Docking. Look for a chapel style “Magazine Cottage” building about 100 yards past the village sign on the right hand side. The turning onto Peddars Way and up to Magazine Wood is immediately after this up a narrow metal road.
Helicopter Landings: By prior arrangement only and please do not fly directly over the village of Sedgeford.
