A tranquil and comfortable romantic retreat for a couple or a great holiday base for a family, this quintessential country cottage nestles in an idyllic village just a few miles from the North Norfolk coast.

The picturesque village of Wiveton overlooks the beautiful Glaven Valley and is an ideal base for enjoying delightful country walks. The charming costal villages of Cley next the Sea and Blakeney are within 2 miles, and are known for their beautiful nature reserves. You can also take a boat trip from Blakeney Point out to see a colony of grey seals. The popular seaside resort of Cromer is 13 miles away and is famous for its traditional seaside activities and entertainment, or you could head to quieter seaside towns like Sheringham or Wells-next-the-Sea, which are within 9 miles. Among many local attractions are Langham Glass, the Muckleburgh Military Collection, Binham Priory and the Thursford Steam Museum.

The cottage is accessed through the garden, down some steps and into the hall, and retains many original features including exposed beams and Pamment flooring. From here you enter the large and cosy lounge which features plenty of comfortable seating, TV and a feature fireplace. There is also a reading area located at one end of the lounge with a bay window overlooking the garden. Exploring further, you will find the attractive shaker-style kitchen/diner which has a delightful dining area and is fully equipped with an oven, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and fridge/freezer. There is also a ground-floor shower room complete with WC. Going upstairs you will find two cosy bedrooms. There’s a spacious double room with a king size bed and plenty of storage, plus a twin room which overlooks the garden and has a sloping ceiling. There is also a WC on the first floor.

Stepping outside, the pretty walled garden has an abundance of cottage garden plants including hollyhocks and gorgeously scented roses. There is a large south-facing lawn around which the flower beds are arranged. Parking is available off-road for one car.

With no shower on out last night after a busy day out was not good. The cottage needs plubing work and until that is done they we will not stay there again or recommend it to anyone which is a shame because it has a lot of charactor and is in a great location.

The cottage is well located. Parking is somewhat tricky but not as bad as we were expecting. The cottage itself is very quaint and has a sizeable garden although the kitchen and living area of the adjoining cottage look out onto the garden, so not very private. The interior of the cottage is as per several other reviews somewhat tired and in need oRead moref some decorating. Cleanliness in general was ok except the lounge and shower are in desperate need of some TLC, dog hairs, cobwebs etc. Hide

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of September. On the whole, the property is poorly maintained. The kitchen was reasonable but that's about it. It's in need of redecorating at best and a very good clean at worst. Parking was not an issue for us but can see that it may well cause problems. Shame really because the property is in a good locRead moreation. Hide

Lovely and very peaceful location. Pretty traditional country cottage, in need of some love & attention (a few hours' work and not-too-much expenditure) would make it even better still. A great base, very nice pub only 3 or 4 minutes away, and lovely countryside all around as well as being close to many great beaches and towns off the A149.

Beautiful area and a lovely cottage, close to being 5 stars but for some issues: Parking is a major issue and the parking space wasnt usable because guests next door needed to park outside their cottage. We ended up parking off road nearby. Also very uncomfortable sofa and grass is garden not cut. A shame because fantastic location and really nice Read morecottage overall. Hide
