Oystercatcher is nestled in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside and is approached via a tree lined avenue.

One of several cottages within the prestigious development of the Old Vicarage, a late Georgian Rectory with communal woodland and grounds extending to approximately 2.5 acres.

Built within the pretty Victorian walled garden of the Old Vicarage, this beautifully presented, single storey mews style cottage has been named after a resident oystercatcher who is often spotted striding the garden walls. The two larger bedrooms have direct access into these gardens and the single room has wonderful views across the meadows and woodlands. The good sized private enclosed rear garden has an outdoor dining area and barbecue and is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the tranquil meadow views with its many visitors, such as oystercatchers, barn owls, mallard, pheasants, French and English partridge, curlew, graylag and barnacle geese and various plover and waders on the marshland beyond.

Should you wish to accommodate further guests please see Corrie's Cottage which is next door and sleeps six guests.
