My historic, timber-framed house is tucked away in the heart of medieval Kings Lynn, 15 minutes walk from the bus and railway stations. This upstairs double bedroom is sweet and bright with windows on two sides and a 5-foot bed. You'll have your own private bathroom, with shower, tub and WC.

There are tea and coffee-making facilities in the room, and you're welcome to help yourself to breakfast in the kitchen. The room has ample storage and a table to work at.

The space
The quiet courtyard where my house stands dates back to 1340: my part was built in 1600. It's a Tudor-style house, with some exposed beams and an original fireplace, in the heart of Kings Lynn's historic quarter.

The room is light, bright and airy, with windows on two sides, and a five-foot bed. It has good bedside lights for reading, plus tea and coffee facilities, plenty of storage and a work-friendly table for business travellers. You'll have exclusive use of the bathroom next door, which has a shower, tub and WC.

Just 10 minutes from the bus station and 15 minutes from the railway station, but in the heart of the historic centre, this is a great base to explore King's Lynn and Norfolk in general. You're a stone's throw from the Tuesday Marketplace, Custom House, King's Lynn Minster and the waterfront.

Guest access
You'll have exclusive use of this double bedroom and your own bathroom, with tub and shower. There are tea and coffee-making facilities in the room, but you'll share the kitchen-diner with me.

Other things to note

Location

King's Lynn, England, United Kingdom

King's Lynn is a medieval market town in the heart of Norfolk. Set on a tidal river, with its own small port and fishing fleet, it offers easy access to West Norfolk's beaches, stately homes and bird reserves.

The town holds a poetry festival in March, Festival Too and the Kings Lynn Festival in July, and a Heritage Open Day in September: there are events most weekends in the summer.

My house, in a quiet courtyard in the historic centre of town, is less than 10 minutes walk from the marketplace where these events are held. We are 50 yards from the quayside, which offers a good range of places to eat.

King's Lynn is the transport hub of north and west Norfolk. It makes a great base for exploring stately homes, including Sandringham, the Queen's Christmas residence, Houghton and Holkham halls.

North-West Norfolk is home to a number of wetland reserves and water meadows. Knots fly in spectacular formations at Snettisham, swans come to Welney in winter, while Dersingham Bog has nightjars. During autumn and winter we see dramatic migrations. The coast near here is famous: Blakeney Point has a grey seal population, while Holkham Beach starred in Shakespeare in Love.

I live in the medieval heart of King's Lynn in the 17th century part of a courtyard dating from the 14th century, very close to the river. I love historic buildings and culture and am active in the Civic Society. I enjoy showing visitors round the town. Food is very important to me, I love talking about it, shopping for it and, of course, cooking and eating it. I would grow it if I had a garden, but my house is more important. Guests are welcome to help themselves to a DIY breakfast of muesli, toast, butter, home made marmalade etc. Tea, coffee milk and orange juice provided. I am a keen quilter, do a lot of knitting for charity and some reading in between writing letters to the planning department.

I'm a member of the Kings Lynn Civic Society, and delighted to play tour guide to my town. I have a small library of books on Lynn and the surrounding area, and am happy to advise on trips into the countryside and around town - though I'll also understand if you want to do your own thing.
