Dereham Holiday Cottages
The tiny market town of Dereham is nicknamed the ‘Heart of Norfolk’ and has acted throughout history as a pitstop for those travelling through to the coast. As a result, Dereham has cumulated a colourful past: back in the 80s, Neolithic artefacts were found that date the town all the way back to the Bronze Age.
The name Dereham is derived from the phrase ‘deer park’ and, although the original no longer stands in the town, you can find deer nearby at Houghton and Holkham Hall. Dereham still exists as a thriving market town, with its weekly market held every Tuesday, along with a high street full of independent retailers and small local businesses. Those staying in Dereham holiday cottages can also enjoy a film at one of the smallest cinemas in the UK, now situated in what was once the town’s Corn Exchange. Dereham is extremely well connected with transport links to the Norfolk coast and into the county’s city, Norwich.
