Description

Overlooking fields and farmland this lovely Victorian Broadland cottage is in a popular village with two good pubs within walking distance.  Comfortably put together the owners have refurbished the cottage so that it offers roomy accommodation which includes a cosy sitting room with woodburner, dining room and a light bright and airy kitchen to the rear of the cottage, opening out onto a very pleasant and private courtyard garden, perfect for morning breakfasts or evening suppers. This is a great part of the county for walkers, birdwatchers and cycling under big open blue skies with Stubb Mill and Hickling Nature Reserve a short walk down the road. The tranquil location of the cottage, the uninterrupted views  and the cosiness within all make any stay here very special. Shops/Pub: 0.75 miles

If you don’t know this part of Norfolk you are in for a treat!  The Broads National Park are practically on the doorstep and one of the largest of the Broads is Hickling Broad, a haven for wildlife and looked after by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, who do tours in the summer months, it is easy to spend time away from the world along the marked trails and let the day drift away, don’t forget a picnic.  The fabulous east coast beaches are also nearby and often underpopulated even in the summer months, family friendly with soft sands the beach at Sea Palling, just 5 miles away, has been given the prestigious Blue Flag safe beach award this year.  Iconic coastal landmarks such as Horsey Windpump and Happisburgh Lighthouse with its candy red and white stripes should not be missed and the resident seal colony at Horsey Gap is about as close to nature as you can get; if you are here in the winter months the new pups can be seen too.  A series of Quiet Lanes, that have been designated as rural roads for less traffic, abound in the area, which is great for walkers and cyclists alike and the cultural city of Norwich is worthy of a day’s outing to take in the culture, a bit of retail therapy and so much more.  

 

Reviews

Very comfortable, well equipped, and warm cottage in pleasant location. Thank you.

Michael G,

A stunning cottage in a fantastic location (although the road outside was a little noisy at times). The cottage was exceptionally clean and had everything we could ask for as guests.

Justyne N,

Have a very relaxing time, everything we needed was there, beautiful location, looking forward to coming back again.

Frances W,

The property is wonderfully relaxing and quiet, well equipped and very clean. Cost may have been considered slightly high as no garden and bathroom downstairs but the compensation is the how lovely the cottage is and the location. Many places to see in the area and a walk to the local pub for food.

Ms Penny H,
