This charming flint and weather board upside down property with one bedroom located in the village of Paston on the North Norfolk Coast, and is the ideal base from where to explore the surrounding area.

Close to the North Norfolk coast, this charming flint and weather-boarded property offers a slice of village life. Arranged in an upside-down layout, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner enjoys rural views through extensive windows and has been decorated in a contemporary and laid back style. Outside, a private patio area is ideal for al fresco dining and ample parking is available off road. Perfect for romantic escapes for two.

Approached via winding country lanes, this property lies in the peaceful village of Paston with wonderful scenic walks available from the doorstep. The Victorian seaside resort of Mundesley is less than 2 miles away, boasting beautiful beaches, a nine-hole golf course and rockpools. This also marks the start of a fantastic circular walk through woodland and wildflowers.

The seaside town of Cromer is just 10 miles away, with its unique pier show, sandy beaches and amusements, while the traditional fishing village of Sheringham is also only 15 miles away, home of the famous North Norfolk Railway. Wildlife lovers shouldn’t miss a visit to the seal colonies at Blakeney Point, a 25-mile drive while no trip to Norfolk would be complete without a day trip to historic Norwich (20 miles).

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?
