A small village located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, Ashwicken is a perfect destination to discover the best or rural living.


Known for its stunning natural beauty, take advantage of the picturesque countryside by exploring the walking trails, cycling routes, and peaceful strolls along the River Babingley. The scenic landscapes are perfect for nature enthusiasts, photographers, and those seeking moments of serenity.

One of the hallmarks of the village is its close-knit community. Get involved in local events, gatherings, and village fairs to foster a sense of belonging. The village’s social calendar can include charity events, seasonal celebrations, and traditional fetes - sometimes taking place at the village’s primary school.

The history of the village is on full display with its 13th century All Saints Church. This flint and stone building stands as strong today as it did more than 700 years ago.

Whilst Ashwicken is a peaceful haven, there’s no shortage of nearby attractions to explore. The Sandringham Estate, the country retreat of the British royal family, is also a short drive away, offering stunning gardens and a glimpse into royal life.

Head to the historic town of King’s Lynn for its rich history dating back to the 11th century, and is home to a number of historical buildings, including the Guildhall, the Custom House, and St. Margaret’s Church - an ideal spot to sightsee practically on your doorstep.

With its Georgian architecture, museums, and its annual Hanse Festival, there’s plenty to do and the town is the ideal spot for amenities and an evening out from village life with a number of shops, restaurants, and bars.

Regular train services to London take around two hours and mean that living in Ashwicken you can enjoy the best of a rural lifestyle, whilst still being well-connected.
