This characterful and quirky converted former railway carriage offers a couple the ideal escape where you can get away from it all and enjoy the tranquillity of the great outdoors.

Plan a romantic getaway to this charming retreat that was once a working railway carriage. Creatively converted into a one-bedroom holiday home for two guests, it nestles in gorgeous grounds in a rural setting at Burgh, just 2 miles from the colourful, Norfolk market town of Aylsham. From here, visit stately homes and beautiful gardens and head off on days out to the Norfolk Broads, 9 miles away, or the coast, 11.5 miles away. Make your way back to the unique abode to sizzle your supper in the shared BBQ hut, with a fire pit.

Take two steps up into your train carriage home from home and find yourselves in an exquisitely crafted, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom. Unpack the fresh produce you have bought in the compact kitchen space and prepare yourselves a light summer lunch. Make yourselves a cup of tea here too when you return home after exhilarating days out. Settle on the sofa to read your book for a while or enjoy a film on the small TV/DVD. Savour a good night’s sleep in the comfortable double bed and awake to a hot shower before breakfast and head off for the day. Bask in the sunshine in your private outside space beside the carriage on balmy evenings. Find you have parking for one car.

Arrange visits to the National Trust properties of Blickling Hall, 3 miles away, and Felbrigg Hall, 10.5 miles from your base. Visit the houses and wander in their beautiful grounds. Have a day on the beach at Mundesley, 11.5 miles away, where you can swim in the sea, or head to Cromer, 11.5 miles away, with its many shops to peruse, cafes and pubs for dining out and famous Victorian pier. Sheringham, 15.5 miles away, is also a pleasant seaside town to spend time in.

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?
