About this listing
Peaceful rural retreat. Cottage is tastefully renovated with quality mod cons whilst retaining many original features. A remote haven of tranquility. 30 mins from North Norfolk Coast and 20 mins from the fashionable market town of Holt.
The cottage has been completely renovated and is very comfortable. We have tried to preserve the original features of the house, keeping wooden floorboards through most of the property, hand made shutters throughout and quarry tiles on the ground floor.
The 2 ensuite bathrooms are part of the bedrooms with no dividing wall (although there is a screen in the twin room if you want to use it). There is an additional downstairs loo in the utility room where you can also find a washing machine and dryer.
House downstairs has sitting room with TV, dining room to seat 6-8, utility room with washer and dryer, loo and washbasin, and kitchen. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms, both with bathrooms in the room - the twin room has a shower, master bedroom has a bath.
The third bedroom is in an outhouse in the garden and pretty rustic! So not for the faint hearted but by friends who have stayed there find it very romantic. There is a small heater, comfortable bed and power points but is NOT attached to the main house and has no plumbing. The downstairs loo is a short hop across the back courtyard.
We have an art studio in the garden which you are welcome to use but please replace any materials you use and tidy up when you leave! Leave us a painting if you'd like to.
There is a wood store in the garden. Feel free to use the logs for the wood burning stove but do replace the logs that you use, please.
Oil fired central heating works well and heats the house very quickly.
You can use the whole house and garden buildings
Interaction with guests
We live mostly in London so will sadly not be there to host you in person. Key handover will be arranged. Very happy to answer any questions by email or on the phone.
Other things to note
Please note the third bedroom is in the garden in an outbuilding and very rustic. There is a photo on the photo page.
Mobile Phone reception is very limited although the windowsill in the master bedroom often traps a couple of bars. There is a landline, please feel free to use it but if you do, please leave a few pounds as a contribution.
Minimum 3 night stay but I would prefer 7 night bookings during school holidays and in July and August. Saturday to Saturday. Shorter bookings considered at short notice.
Please look after the house and leave it as you find it. It is a very precious and much loved family retreat. Absolutely no smoking inside the house and no pets please.
Check in and check out times can be flexible dependent on other bookings.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
