A 16c listed and part thatched cottage oozing character and history. Modern furnishings compliment revealed timbering, original beams and an inglenook fireplace with wood burner.
In the heart of a friendly, quiet medieval village with 2 gastro pubs, coffee shop offering delicious homemade food and a general store closeby.

The space
The walls are full of original art and photography as well as quirky features around every corner. Painted in the traditional Norfolk colour pink, this is a listed building in a medieval conservation village full of historic features.
The bedrooms have comfortable beds to accommodate up to 6 people as there is a spare bed that can be put up in the larger garden room ( that room would then accommodate 4 people in 1 room, a double and 2 singles). I have a cot bed for a baby. There's also a high chair, toys, books etc for children. For adults there are music and film dvd's, books and a barbecue in the garden.
The owner has taken care to ensure that guests have every comfort during their stay.
There are tv's in every bedroom and a large one in the living room as well as a dvd player and a music centre.
The sun room provides a perfect private space to get away from it all and relax. Through the French Windows is a small veranda with seating and a herb garden. Beyond the veranda down a short but pretty pathway there is a sunny established garden where you can eat al fresco, barbecue, or just relax.
The living room is colourful and cosy with a woodburning stove and comfortable contemporary seating. Behind an oak door there's a 'secret' stairway and on the back wall is the original bakers oven door.
The bedrooms are individually designed to give a different feel to each space. The Poppy room with its deep red accents and Moroccan style lighting make this a warm and rich space to relax in. The Garden room is larger with a double and a single bed. This has more traditional English colouring in the furnishings with an original fireplace, a 'secret' staircase and a fabulous long window looking down onto the sun room and beyond.
The bathroom has a walk in shower. If you need toiletries there’s lots in the cupboard on the landing you can use.
If no one is coming after you I'm very happy for you to leave in the afternoon...maybe after lunch. Ask me if you're not sure or I'll let you know.
Please be aware that the cottage is 16c therefore some areas like the landing have low ceilings. Mostly everywhere else is fine but if you’re tall you might need to be careful in a few areas in the cottage.
You have sole use of the cottage. I live next door.
I can now offer massage and therapy services who are happy to come to the cottage. There are 3 local therapists who offer different treatments. Contact them directly. Each has a phone number etc.

Guest access
The whole of the holiday cottage includes a living room, kitchen, utility, dining area, sun room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a herb garden on the veranda and a large sunny garden area for outside dining and barbecues.
There is parking for several cars on the rear driveway. Parking at the front of the house on the road is at the risk of guests.

Other things to note
Please remember to book for any children over 2 yrs using a bed as there is the same washing and ironing involved as with adults.
Lots of toys, games and books for children. Let me know in advance if you need a cot.

As a welcome package you will have a bottle of red or white wine (let me know your preference), some bread and butter, tea, coffee, milk, orange juice, biscuits, eggs, cereal and a bottle of mineral water. There will be extra drinks available in the utility room where you can buy wine, local beer etc using an honesty box as well as extra bread in freezer etc if needed when shop is closed (open 7am- 7pm).
Once you've used up wood provided for wood burner you can buy more from Caryn for a small charge for a basket full.
You can take calls on my home phone if you need to.
Small to medium size well behaved dogs welcome....just strictly not in the bedrooms please. Stair gates are provided. They’re in the wardrobe of the garden bedroom. I’ve had a few guests let dogs upstairs and the cleaning takes much longer to clean up dog hair. It’s a difficult job as hairs are fine. I don’t charge extra for dogs yet but I may need to.

Location

New Buckenham, United Kingdom

The village is friendly and has an active community. It has its own castle ruins, a village green with a market cross building and a whipping post. There are wonderful walks all around the outskirts including the commons history can be traced back to the 12c.
A number of orchids grow on the common as do huge and unusual fungi.
It's also a great area for bird spotting.
The village has 2 great gastro pubs (book ahead), a village general shop and a fantastic coffee shop selling home made sweets and savouries. I have a shop/stall on Norwich market at the top (nos 138/9) called 'The other Curator' selling quirky bohemian and vintage style fashion , jewellery and homeware. See the website www.theothercurator.co.uk or visit the Facebook page. 10% off any purchases for my guests.
