A tranquil and comfortable romantic retreat for a couple or a great holiday base for a family, this quintessential country cottage nestles in an idyllic village just a few miles from the North Norfolk coast.

This quaint cottage has been beautifully updated to create a fantastic retreat for four guests to enjoy a relaxed break. Original features such as the beamed ceilings and large brick fireplace give the property the authentic charm of a country cottage, which is complemented by well chosen furnishings lending it a lovely cosy feel. The shower room, meanwhile, has been finished in a sleek contemporary style and is situated on the ground-floor, with a separate WC situated on the first-floor next to the bedrooms. Outside, the south-facing cottage garden gives guests a delightful place in which to relax and enjoy al fresco dining.

Located in the village of Wiveton, this property is located within just 1.5 miles of the two coastal villages of Blakeney and Cley-next-the-Sea. In Wiveton itself, a fantastic gastro pub can be found situated less than half a mile from the cottage, which prides itself on its foodie reputation and has a beautiful garden for al fresco meals during the summer.

From the village of Wiveton it is perfectly possible to walk to neighbouring Blakeney, from where it is possible to take a fascinating boat trip around the nearby nature reserve to see the resident seals. Or perhaps head to Cley-next-the-Sea with its two-mile stretch of shingled beach. A little further afield there are many more beautiful beaches and harbour towns just waiting to be explored including Wells-next-the-Sea (9.5 miles) and Cromer (12 miles).

This was a lovely stay in a very pretty, nicely decorated cottage, providing everything we needed. The access way leading to the parking area would be very narrow for a large car, but it's possible to find parking in the lane.

Golden goose was a cosy cottage. Rather dark and cold in the sitting room area, even on a sunny day, but light and airy upstairs. The smallest toilet ever was upstairs, but the downstairs bathroom was well equipped, and the kitchen was lovely. Nice cottage garden to sit outside in. Great location to explore the North Norfolk coast.

Nice cottage in lovely location. Comfy beds. Real Norfolk rural idyll with nice pub a moment's walk away. Garden secure for dog. Would come back.

A lovely location and the cottage well equipped. However the interior was dissappionting as it didn't really match the description online. The house felt small compared to the photos. We couldn't stand up in the upstairs toliet, the downstairs bathroom is basic, not sleek (with a washing machine in) and no bath.

This is a great location with fantastic walks and eateries nearby. Wiveton Hall and walks to Cley and Blakeney are all doable without getting in the car. A cosy ish cottage not quite as big and cosy as it looks online but nice enough. Garden an added bonus. Could be a little cleaner but well equipped and a fantastic shower.

Ideal for short breaks to enjoy the beautiful Norfolk coastline. Everything you need is within a short drive of the property. Great local restaurant within 5 minutes walking distance. A quaint property full of character.

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?
