This wonderfully presented and traditional Norfolk cottage provides a family with the ideal holiday home and is ideally located to explore the beautiful coast and countryside of this fantastic area.

The peaceful and picturesque village of Syderstone is ideally located in the heart of the beautiful Norfolk countryside, and is within easy reach of the coast which is just ten miles away, with an array of fabulous sandy beaches including those at Hunstanton, Brancaster, Wells and Holkham. Hunstanton is a traditional seaside town and provides a wonderful family day out with a range of entertainment including a Sea Life sanctuary, fun fair, crazy golf course, a leisure centre with pool, bowling and beautiful beach front gardens. For nature lovers there are plenty of beautiful nature reserves in the area, including Syderstone Common, a short walk from the property, which is home to the rare natterjack toad and the scarce woodlark. RSPB Snettisham and Pensthorpe Natural Park are also close by. Boat trips out to see the resident seal colonies near Blakeney Point are less than 20 miles away. The stunning Holkham estate covers an amazing 25,000 acres of land, including the grounds of Holkham Hall, beautiful pinewoods, and the idyllic wide sandy beach at Holkham Bay. For the younger guests there is a children’s playground just 300 metres from the property. Sandringham Estate is only 10 miles away.

Guests will enter this cottage and arrive into a hall which has doors to the lounge, dining room and kitchen. The spacious and light-filled lounge has two comfortable sofas and a contemporary chair, a 40 inch TV with YouView box (which allows guests to access several apps such as NowTV, Netflix, iPlayer, Prime and also allows to record and watch FreeView programmes) and an open fire, perfect for a family to relax around on those chilly wintery nights. The modern kitchen is well-equipped boasting an electric oven and hob, a microwave, fridge and dishwasher – the old boiler room, accessed from the utility room, also has an additional large fridge-freezer. From the kitchen the separate utility room houses a combi washer-dryer which leads to a downstairs shower room, with WC, sink and an electric walk in shower. The dining area leading from the kitchen provides a great place to dine with your family or friends and has a table and seating for six guests. Through a door from the dining room takes you upstairs to three bedrooms, a family bathroom, with shower over bath, WC and sink, and a separate shower room with walk in shower, WC and sink. The first bedroom is king-size with a built in wardrobe and dressing table. The second king sized bedroom has an open wardrobe and dressing table. The third bedroom consists of a twin room with two single beds and a built in wardrobe.

Outside offers a large enclosed garden which is the perfect place for soaking up some rays whilst planning the rest of your trip and talking about the adventures of the day.

The Old School House was a very comfortable and well equipped base for our break in North Norfolk. There are pleasant walks from the house and lots of places to visit nearby. Be warned some local roads are very narrow and our sat nav wasn't reliable in choosing sensible routes.

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?
