Vine Cottage

Stanhoe is a small village in the north-west of the English county of Norfolk.

Stanhoe lies around 100 miles (160 km) north of London, and 6 miles (10 km) from the North Sea. Fakenham and King’s Lynn are the nearest towns.

In the middle of the village is a large duck pond, otherwise known as the Pit, and nearby is our pub (the Duck Inn). Many of the houses are built from traditional Norfolk materials: flint, chalk, and brick, roofed with curved red tiles. There are several fine large houses, including Stanhoe Hall, and some attractive old farm buildings.
