Property code: NCC36

A pretty single-storey cottage offering elegantly styled accommodation for two guests, enjoying an attractive location in the grounds of an historic house in the village of Binham.

This enchanting little bolthole is situated in the grounds of the historic Abbey House in Binham, just 5 miles from the North Norfolk coastline. Beautifully furnished but still managing to retain its original charm, the one-bedroomed stone cottage is the perfect romantic country escape. A spacious sitting room with sunroom gives lovely views out to the lawns and cottage garden full of traditional lilacs and roses, as well as a little summer house. The house also has shared use of the magnificent Abbey House grounds and tennis court.

Under half a mile to the nearest pub and shop, the cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy this pretty village. Mentioned in the Domesday book, it has the monastic ruins of the spectacular Benedictine St. Mary’s Priory nearby, now managed by English Heritage. Discover the continuous scandals attached to the priory and make sure you visit the Binham Market Cross, the site of an annual fair for many centuries.

For more history further afield, visit the breathtaking Castle Acre Priory, 25 miles away. These romantic ruins are sure to be an amazing backdrop for photographs and you can drive into King’s Lynn afterwards for a browse amongst the shops and have a cream tea in one of the town’s beautiful tea rooms. Beach lovers should stay nearer to home and pop to Wells-next-the-Sea, 6 miles away, where you can visit the sandy Norfolk coast as well drive along to a whole host of spectacular National Nature Reserves further along the coast.

cosy and just right for 2 people. Binham is central for visiting anywhere in Norfolk, east or west.

This cottage was ideal for two of us. Convenient for the coastal towns and villages and being of a certain vintage, we made use of our bus pass to visit along the coast. Well appointed and secluded - but backed on to a lovely lawned area - we would heartily recommend this property. Wifi/phone reception is poor in the area so it pays to use your phoRead morene when on your travels to check for a good signal. Hide

Lovely , comfortable cottage. The bed was very comfy. The garden was beatiful and although shared very quiet. There is a small area for the cottage only which was nicely separated by flowers and shrubs. Lovely pub next door with good food.

This is an excellent cottage in an excellent location. Our only, very small, problem was that the bedroom is very small.

Reviewed by Joyce 18th May 2019

A lovely peaceful spot with no WiFi and a dodgy mobile signal. Absolute bliss! And only 2 mins walk (5 mins for the infirm) to the pub with excellent food.

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?
