Ideally located in the heart of Norfolk, this spacious one-bedroom annexe offers the ideal base in which to explore the stunning natural beauty of the Norfolk coast and countryside.

Boasting the perfect amount of space for two, this cottage is a charming bolthole for a couples getaway in rural Norfolk. A cosy annexe to the owner’s 17th-century property, this holiday home is lovingly presented with colourful accents and charming décor. Located opposite Whissonsett’s 900-year-old church, you’re certain to embrace the slower pace of life in this chocolate box village. Head 15.5 miles to visit Norfolk’s coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the wide selection of stately homes or venture 30 miles to take in sights at the Norfolk Broads National Park.

You’re greeted on arrival by a pretty garden, lovely in the spring and summer; step inside the cottage and settle in to the open-plan living space. Here you’ll find a lounge and kitchen with a dining table for two set in the middle of the room. Bright and cheerful with pops of colour, the lounge is the ideal space to unwind. A wood burner-effect electric fire will keep things cosy whilst you enjoy a good book or watch the TV. Further inside the property lies a king-size bedroom with a second TV, ideal for lazy mornings in bed.

Prepare to hike or bike your way around this beautiful area, following a route along the banks of the River Wensum (1.5 miles) or taking in the fascinating nature reserve at Pensthorpe National Park (9.5 miles). You’re never far from a beach here in Norfolk, and a trip to the coast boasts days on the sand, coastal walks and the chance to spot seals. Those keen on taking it easy on their travels will no doubt enjoy exploring Norfolk’s stately homes, with Holkham Hall (16 miles) and the royal Sandringham Estate (17 miles) worth a visit.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
