Lying in the peaceful village of North Elmham, this traditional cottage offers fresh, cosy accommodation for couples and smaller families exploring the heart of the magnificent Norfolk countryside. With ample space for up to four guests, the property retains original features including exposed brickwork and timber beams, along with a wood burner to snuggle in front of at the end of a great day exploring the area’s rustic villages and tranquil nature reserves. Perfect for keen walkers, nature lovers and cyclists, this delightful retreat has been thoughtfully updated, charmingly furnished and decorated in cool neutral tones to make a wonderful holiday home. Its location in a quiet road, yet close to all of the amenities, including a local pub and delicious tearoom, make your holiday here even more special.

Stepping inside the cottage, the delightful lounge has plenty of seating, a wood burner and TV, providing a cheery, relaxing space to sit back and unwind after a wonderful day out. A doorway with low head height leads through to the kitchen/diner. The sweet oak dining table is to the side, perfect for enjoying meals together which you can cook in the stylishly arranged kitchen which benefits from skylights allowing light to stream in. Heading up the steep, narrow cottage-style stairs, the characterful first floor offers a soothing bathroom and two cheerful, relaxing double bedrooms with beams and low ceilings. Stepping outside, the fully enclosed back garden has a lawn, pretty borders and a decked area with dining furniture, making a lovely spot to sit outside with a morning coffee in the sunshine.

North Elmham lies between the town of Dereham (4.5 miles) and the picturesque market town of Fakenham (9 miles), both with a variety of fantastic shops, pubs and restaurants.

Such a beautiful place for some peace and relaxation. Robin Cottage has everything you need, and that extra little bit of thought that goes into making a special stay.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cosy cottage with us. You have thought of everything for a perfect stay! Highly recommend boating on The Broads at Wroxham and Sandringham is worth a visit. Food at The Railway and The Bell at Brisley both excellent. We hope to be back very soon.

Our highlights have been Holkham Beach, Cley-on-sea, Wells (for crabbing!), Blakeny and boating on the Norfolk Broads. We also enjoyed a cycle around the woodland back in the village at the church.

A great cottage with welcome added extras e.g. Alexa, but a fan would have been helpful in this extreme heat (owner a fan has now been supplied).
