The cottage was refurbished a couple of years ago to create an open plan downstairs, a modern bathroom and additional toilet, and a king size and twin bedrooms upstairs. It features HD freesat, dishwasher, waching machine, and garden with a childrens play area. The cottage has a 4 star English Tourist Board rating. The cottage has unlimted Wifi and a phone for local calls.
Its location is a stones throw from the village green on a quiet residential road. Take the short cut through and you enter a village with a range of shops and restaurants including tea shops, butchers', art galleries, a chemist, general store, clothing stores and a fantastic wine shop - all only a 2 minute walk away. The beach is only 3 miles away with miles of sandy coast. The area has much to offer ranging from a lavender farm and the Sea Life centre to the fabulous Holkham Hall stately home and many farm shops.
The cottage has two bedrooms with Egyptian Cotton sheets and large bath sheet towels. The kingsize bedroom has HD Free Sat with DVD player. The other has full size twin beds.
The large open plan living room and kitchen allows you to communicate easily while cooking or relaxing. The wood burner stove keeps you cosy in winter along with the thermostatically controlled heating. There is a good supply of books, DVDs, games, toddler toys and a CD and mini disc player should the weather turn bad in one of the sunniest places in the country.
There is a secluded garden with table and chairs and this summer a small play area for children - swing, slide and trampoline. It's child friendly but also perfect for two. It has a barbeque for those summer nights. A rotary dryer is also provided should you need it.

There is also a Maize Maze through the summer in the local area. A babysitter can be arranged with advance warning for payment locally.
There are plenty of attractions for everyone else. These range from the stately home of Holkham Hall - with it's bygone cars exhibition, to bird watching at the many local visitors centres, out on the mud flats or even just in the fields 20yds from the cottage. There are many English Heritage, National Trust and independent stately homes in the local area including Sandringham - the British Queen's Norfolk residence. You can tour the state rooms, have tea in the grounds, buy her meat and pick her apples (in season) and attend many of the activities like the Christmas craft fair. Just a few minutes drive away is Pensthorpe Nature reserve home of BBC springwatch. It provides bug trails for kids and plenty of bird watching and wondering for adults.
For the active there are a few local sailing schools and many golf courses and a driving range nearby. The local town has a bowling alley. There is also local fishing lakes and a painting school for those who aren't as active. There is also horse riding and high trees walking for the even more adventurous.
The village itself is the hub of the local area. It has a couple of pubs with excellent restaurants, a few other local restaurants, one in the village and many within a short drive. And even the Michelin starred restaurant of Galton Blackiston 25 minutes or so away (you need to book most eateries in high season and especially this one all year around). The village has a vast array of shops including a butcher selling local game and produce, a bakery producing the famous 'blob', a chemist, a fabulous wine merchant, a general store, bookshops and many galleries and boutique clothing shops and even a hat shop. Everything you could possibly need is here, meaning that you don't have to drive if you don't want to!! The village has a produce fair in early July, Christmas lights are switched on at the end of November and many other events take place throughout the year.
And there is even a beauty salon providing massages for those that want a little pampering and a few tea shops for the rest to wait in while you are having your treatments.

Beautifully equipped and comfortable cottage. Beds were lovely and cosy which is a great welcome after a long day. The welcome wine and snack was a wonderful surprise which was a great thought so Thank you
Had a wonderful week in the most beautiful cottage. You can really tell that this cottage is loved and used by its owners as they've really thought of everything - not just for the adults but children too.
A day at Brancaster beach - weather permitting is a must. Completely unspolit and just like when we were children ourselves - simple things are the most pleasurable. Farmer Freds play area is at the same place as Norfolk Lavender - it is a full day out for the whole family - excellent. Crabbing at Wells is brilliant for the children but us adults loved it too! Use bacon bait - so the locals taught us and we caught more!
A wonderful time, beautiful location, would come back again! thank you
Had a lovely break with fantastic weather and a lovely home from home. The cottage is great - everything we could have needed and more. Very clean and comfortable - thanks very much
Another lovely cottage in Norfolk. The best equipped cottage we've ever rented, beautifully clean and really cosy. Thanks for a lovely stay and the wine was very welcome. Cheers!
