Description

Overlooking fields and farmland this lovely Victorian Broadland cottage is in a popular village with two good pubs within walking distance if you fancy a stretch of the legs there and back.  Comfortably put together the owners have recently refurbished the cottage and it offers roomy accommodation with a cosy sitting room with woodburner, dining room and a light bright and airy kitchen to the rear of the cottage, which opens 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 makes a good stay here, just great. 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

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 Hudson,

A lovely, clean, cottage and ideal for our purposes - sailing and cycling. A warm welcome awaited us, with fresh milk in the fridge and home made jams for us to try. The bike shed was especially useful as we had two bikes and one was electric. The shed has its own power supply for charging the bike. Only 10 - 15 mins walk from Hickling Broad, the NWT Reserve and the Greyhoud Pub. We would certainly want to come again.

Mr D Oakley,

Very homely feel, making for an enjoyable stay. It's situation lends to easy exploration of North Norfolk and the surrounding area. The quality of the roads in Norfolk are very good for a driving holiday, much better than Surrey. We had a lovely week.

Mr Peter Stevenson,

The best cottage we have stayed in. Have used different companies in the past but Norfolk Country cottages have given me excellent customer service and the cottage we stayed in was absolutely perfect and extremely clean (we are a bit fussy!) Considering going back there again next year.

Miss Anthea Slater,

We really enjoyed our holiday at such a lovely cottage at the super location. We felt at home. Everything we need was there only missing thing was.. a tea cosy! We would love to go back to The Cottage again, thank you so so much.

Ms Ikuko Ishiwaki,

We had a wonderful long weekend walking various trails. All went very smoothly and our correspondence with Brenda was very friendly and helpful.

Miss Belinda Le Mesurier,

A very high-quality property, clean, well-equipped and cosy, in a great location for walks, birdwatching and exploring the Norfolk Coast.
