Description

These four beautifully refurbished cottages are set in the extensive mature and secure gardens and grounds of the 16th century Grade II listed Pilgrims House, which was once the farmhouse of Bromholm Priory. A track behind the properties leads to the sandy beach. See further cottage details and 360 degree views on www.pilgrimsholidaycottages.co.uk Shop/ Pub: 0.5 miles

Gardens: Each cottage has its own private area with table, chairs and gas barbecue. There is shared use of the extensive gardens with a summerhouse, outdoor chess set and swing ball.

Swimming Pool: At the centre of the complex the 16th Century Grade II listed, thatched barn houses a large 13 x 6 metre heated indoor swimming pool and has exposed beams and stained glass windows, with sauna, shower and wc  The pool, with an average year round temperature of 30c, is available for all guests and it may be used between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. (from July 2017 11am to 4pm)

There is no lifeguard, so an adult must supervise children at all times and nobody can use the pool area on their own.

Exercise Room & Laundry: On the first floor of the gig house/wood store is an exercise room with exercise bike, weights, air hockey/pool table and table football. The laundry area has a washing machine, tumble dryer, irons and ironing boards for guests to use free of charge.

Parking: There is a private car park with parking for one car per property with further free public parking available 30 metres away in Abbey Street.

Pets: One very well-behaved dog per cottage. A £50 refundable pet indemnity is payable to NCC two weeks prior to your holiday to cover extra cleaning of coverings and furniture due to your pet.  We love dogs but we have to consider the wellbeing and comfort of all our guests. Please be aware of our booking information regarding pets.

Notes: Please note that when all four properties are booked for a group a housekeeping deposit of £300 per group is payable to Norfolk Country Cottages two weeks before the start of your holiday.==

Once an important place of pilgrimage, the ruins of Bromholm Priory are still to be seen in Bacton today. The Priory was built in 1113 AD by William de Glanville and was home to the Cluniacs, the Black Monks who purchased a piece of the True Cross, the Bromholm Roode. Ensuing miracles ensured visits by many thousands of pilgrims including King Henry III. The Priory was mentioned in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, the Domesday Book, and was the subject of a prediction in Mother Shipton's Almanac.

Today the coastal village opens its doors to the 21st century pilgrims who visit for their holidays. They enjoy the friendly village atmosphere and the sandy beaches, which are often quiet even in the height of summer. There is a good range of local amenities including a pub and shop nearby, a children's playground and a bowling green.

Reviews

A delightful property with beautiful grounds and a fantastic pool. Very close to a lovely beach which was never busy.Mrs CAROL Johnson - 26th July 2016
The cottage was superb. Spotless and had everything we could wish for. So many little extras like the welcome pack with bread, eggs, butter jams, cereals,milk, fruit and wine. There was even a bag of treats for the dog!The pool is a joy, very well kept and also spotlessly clean. Very warm welcome!Mr L Foster - 11th May 2016
Lovely place to stay. The pool was exceptional and the welcome basket a really nice touch, and much appreciated.Mrs S King - 4th September 2015
Well maintained and scrupulously clean no limit on heat and lighting and free access to sauna and heated swimming pool absolutely heavenly.Mr L Gill - 6th June 2015
