A beautiful Grade II listed property, offering sympathetically updated accommodation for up to eight guests, enjoying a tranquil location next to open fields in the village of Syderstone.

This detached, 1820s house is a lovely mixture of old and new.

The old part of the house has retained many of the original features with cast-iron fireplaces, pamment floor tiles and feature beams. The modern part has wooden flooring and contemporary styling which makes it a very spacious family home. The house has four bedrooms and can sleep seven adults plus one child maximum, or two children in the bunk room, with additional day bed for a small child. There is a wide selection of books, games and toys.

 Its central rural location means that Syderstone is near to the attractions of Houghton Hall (4 miles away), Holkham Hall (9 miles and you can hire cycles there to explore), and Sandringham (15 miles).

Nature enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to Sculthorpe Moor reserve (6 miles) or Snettisham (11.5 miles) and children and adults alike will love Pensthorpe Natural Park (10 miles) and Bircham Mill (6 miles). Sailing and walking at Burnham Overy Staithe is 9.5 miles away.

A very attractive cottage , well equipped with comfortable beds, with space for 6 people to spread out. Very pretty well kept garden and beautiful views from the lounge/diner. Reasonable wifi. The Crow's Nest was a great hit with the children.

The cottage was great for two of us and our two dogs. The gardens are enclosed so our four-legged friends could not escape. The location is excellent in terms of being able to walk to the local common and also to drive to places like Brancaster, Wells, Holt and Sheringham. It was usually peaceful (the Air Force sometimes flew over at an unsociable Read morehour!) and the hammock in the back garden was especially welcome for lounging in the sun. The Wi-fi was also excellent. Wed definitely return. Hide

We enjoyed our stay during half term. The house was a good location for us - only about 15 mins from the bird-watching coast, and a few minutes to the main A-road, so easy to get to other places. We did struggle with the heating system (though that was probably us). However I think it would be lovely in summer as there is a fabulous extension at thRead moree back that overlooks the garden (great for dogs and kids) and the paddocks/field beyond. Hide

The cottage for us was ideal as it was nice and quiet. You definitely need a car to get around in. There are plenty of places to explore the beaches are great from Hunstanton right through to Cromer.

We had a wonderful week at this cottage, very comfortable, caters to all your needs, the garden is great, the dogs loved it. It was just the 2 of us & 2 dogs, but I think if the house is at full capacity, there are not enough seats in the room where the tv is, if you all wanted to sit down & watch something, but fine for us.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
