This attractive detached property was originally used for the storage of horse drawn vehicles, hence the name The Gig House. The property now provides charming accommodation with original rustic features including exposed beams, flint walls, a fireplace with wood burner and two bedrooms snugly situated under the eaves. French doors in the dining area open onto a sunny patio and approximately half an acre of lawn. The cottage is close to the owner's home, which is located in a peaceful rural setting on the edge of the small village of Ridlington, a lovely location to return to after a busy day having fun on the nearby sandy beaches or exploring this very pretty area of Norfolk.

The small village of Ridlington nestles peacefully into the rural Norfolk landscape between the Sea and the Broads. Un-crowded sandy beaches with a quiet seaside atmosphere are within walking distance and the blue flag beaches of Bacton, Mundesley and Sea Palling are only a short drive away, as are the historic market towns of North Walsham and Stalham. The Victorian seaside town of Cromer and vibrant city of Norwich both prove popular day trips from this location and there are also many National Trust properties to enjoy. This quiet, unspoiled part of Norfolk is renowned for big skies, wide open spaces, iconic lighthouses, stunning windmills and majestic Norman churches but there are plenty of pretty villages, relaxing walks and country pubs to discover as well. Cyclists and walkers can easily access the 63 mile North Norfolk Coastal Path and there are bird watching, fishing, canoeing and boating opportunities in the Norfolk Broads. Another very popular activity is seal watching all year round on Horsey Beach, particularly during December and January when the seal pups are born. This is the perfect location for a traditional bucket and spade holiday, an active break, or a chance to relax and let the world go by.

Really nice property in a super location - lovely and quiet yet close enough to amenitiesMr Paul Rothwell - 29th July 2017
We have been so comfortable living in The Gig House, such a cosy, dear little cottage! A very warm welcome from the owners with a wonderful home-baked cake and treats for our dogs! We love this cottage, everything we needed was there and the paddock was great for the dogs. We have had one of our best holidays here and would highly recommend both The Gig House and its owners! Thank you so much for a memorable holiday! Beverly, Keith, Dodger and Suzie. - 28th July 2017
I have never stayed in a more well equipped cottage and we have stayed in many. The cottage is in a quiet location with a private enclosed patio and lawn that was sunny all afternoon. It is also very close to deserted beaches and set in gorgeous countryside. The owners seem to have thought of all the details that make it a home from home. Awaiting us we found wine, homemade cake and even milk in the fridge. I was also delighted to find a full size hairdryer and diffuser, a magnifying mirror and very good quality full size toiletries. I havent been to Norfolk since I was a child, this holiday has convinced me that its the best destination the UK has to offer.Mrs Victoria Van Eijk - 22nd July 2017
