A thoughtfully-converted stable offering comfortable accommodation for two guests, situated in the village of Stody, just 7 miles from the North Norfolk coast.

Nestled on the edge of the Stody Estate, this cosy property is an excellent choice for those seeking a peaceful haven in unspoilt surroundings. A single-storey farm-conversion, the hideaway offers plenty of places to sit back and relax, whether in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its crackling wood burner, in the walled patio garden with the morning papers or in the sumptuously furnished bedroom. Next door to this property, is another one-bedroomed cottage making the two properties ideal for two couples to book together, affording their own privacy whilst allowing them to enjoy socialising together.

There is an abundance of opportunities for walking and leisurely bike rides through the countryside, right from the front door. The adjoining Stody Estate is open to the public at certain times of the year and is worth visiting for its ten acres of colourful rhododendrons and azaleas. Whether your interests are stately homes, National Trust properties, wildlife, golf or sandy beaches, this part of Norfolk offers something for everyone.

If you fancy a spot of shopping or a bite to eat, the Georgian town of Holt is 4 miles north of the house with quaint streets lined with independent shops, antique emporiums and restaurants. The coastal nature reserve at Blakeney is 8 miles away where you can board a boat to see its colony of grey seals, while the seemingly endless golden sands of Holkham are 16 miles away if you’d like a day on the beach.

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?
