Situated just a few miles from the coast, this cosy and traditional Grade-II listed cottage lies in the tranquil village of Little Walsingham, renowned as a place of pilgrimage since medieval times.

Hope Cottage, a Grade II listed, traditional flint, end-of-terrace property lies within the conservation area of the beautiful, medieval pilgrim village of Little Walsingham. Facing holy shrine grounds, this holiday home combines comfort and convenience. With two double bedrooms, it is ideal for couples holidaying together. Relax in light, airy living spaces and dine in before retreating to the cosy sitting room for an evening by the wood burner. Or, light a BBQ and settle in the outdoor area, equipped with garden furniture.

Little Walsingham has many historic buildings and religious sites as well as a museum to visit. There is also a good range of shops to browse.

Please bare in mind there are no facilities to access for at least 6 miles. Surroundings green and peaceful. Accommodation comfortable, but needs update.

Hope Cottage is beautiful. Lovely and peaceful. Excellent location. Back garden is superb especially for small dog: secure and safe. Had an excellent stay; have been before and hope to return. Very homely with all that you need.

A cottage very convient for the village and the shrine. I had a good time there.

Reviewed by Mrs Bosley 29th August 2017

We had a lovely week thanks, the cottage was perfect for us and Archie the small dog, he enjoyed the enclosed garden very much. Parking was initially a problem due to the street parking restrictions but a very kind man at Norton's restaurant suggested we park in the fish n chip restaurant's car park across the street, so we did and it was fine.

Location

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?
