Description

In a tranquil countryside setting, The Signal Box is a truly unique holiday experience. Formerly the main signal box at Wymondham station and dating back to 1900, the building was moved to its present location in 2000 and has been converted into a stunning holiday home by the current owners. The upper floor accommodation has windows on 3 sides, affording great views of the surrounding landscape, gardens and ponds, giving wonderful opportunities to spot the local wildlife whilst having breakfast. The Signal Box sits in the grounds of the owners' home with other attractive farm buildings nearby, giving a hint of the rural life of times past. Directly beside the local public footpath and with dogs accepted, walk into the countryside and leave all your cares behind for a tangible escape from reality! Shop: 2 miles Pub: 4 miles

If you want to relax and retreat from the rat race for a while, then this part of Norfolk could not be bettered. Quiet country lanes, for walking, cycling and birdwatching, cosy country pubs and great food are all to be found locally in the surrounding villages and countryside. The nearby village of Melton Constable has a well renowned butcher's shop that has award winning sausages, with over 28 flavours to choose from including Wild Boar & Juniper, Rhubarb & Sweet Chilli and Venison, Mushroom & Onion - clearly a genuine champion of Norfolk food and drink, which the region is justifiably famous for. Head north and the coastline beckons with lovely seaside villages such as Blakeney and Wells-next-the-Sea in the west and Cromer and Sheringham in the east all with their own individual character and charm. There are two impressive National Trust houses nearby, Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall and the elegant Georgian town of Holt with its art and antique galleries, cafe culture, great shopping, small gauge steam railway and local Country Park makes for a great day out.

Reviews

The property has been fitted out with high quality fittings and appliances - the detailed thought re lighting and safety is excellent. Mr Graham Whitham - 10th April 2017
A lovely property in a great location for touring the North Norfolk coast. Chris and Polly (the owners) were on hand for advice about local attractions and have put together a lovely place to stay.Mr Simon Parker - 2nd April 2017
Perfect place for me, my husband and our dog, Molly. Really quiet and tranquil but close enough to lots of coastal walks and beaches plus pretty villages and towns for browsing shops. Mrs Beverley Sewell - 17th March 2017
Amazing place to stay, loved every minute. Local walks and wildlife were excellent. Ideal for couples and unique stay if you want something different.Mr Colin Knight - 23rd February 2017
