Built in 1642 this ancient chapel-style building was created to disguise its actual use as a munitions store during the English Civil War. Its style and sense of history will charm you from the moment you step inside the front door. Nowadays it is a magical holiday home that still retains many of its original features such as the triptych windows, beautiful beams, original kitchen and fireplaces but also offers creature comforts for modern living. Being an ancient building it is set over various levels from the kitchen breakfast room on the lower floor to the beamed bedrooms at the top of the house. Surrounded by its own garden with countryside views, The Magazine is situated directly on the Peddars Way, great for walkers of all ages and the National Cycle Route 1 runs directly through the village. The village has a good pub and it is just a short journey to the wide open beaches of the Royal Norfolk coast. Shop: 3 miles Pub: 1 mile

Sedgeford is a charming village with an award winning local pub, The King William IV. After a good lunch take a walk along The Peddars Way, which is directly outside The Magazine; Hunstanton and the coast one way, Suffolk the other! The location of the village is within easy reach of the Royal Norfolk coastal resorts of Hunstanton and Heacham with their fabulous sandy beaches, where you can also while away time rock-pooling and fossil hunting and stay to watch the sunset one of the best you will ever see. A little further along the coast you can sail from Brancaster, bird watch at Titchwell or Snettisham or spend a days’ exploration on the Scolt Head Island Nature Reserve. With the historic houses of Sandringham, Houghton Hall and Holkham nearby, the links course at Hunstanton and the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club at Brancasterfor for golfers, the races at Fakenham and boutique shopping in beautiful Burnham Market, there is something for everyone in this corner of Norfolk.
