Property code: OC-1747

Located in the rural village of Swanton Novers, this charming two-storey property is tucked away along quiet country lanes and surrounded by countryside. Wander out from your front door to explore one of the largest areas of ancient woodland in Norfolk, and see if you can spot honey buzzards. The cottage offers a fantastic base to explore the region. Discover boutiques, galleries, cafes, and antiques shops in the market town of Holt (7 miles). Spot grey seals at Blakeney (11 miles), visit the bird reserve at Cley next the Sea (12 miles) and stroll along saltmarshes at Stiffkey (9 miles). Further along the coast, discover the glorious beaches and famous fish and chip shops at Wells-next-the-Sea (11 miles), or visit the pine trees, sand dunes, and deer park and hall at Holkham (13 miles).

A few small steps leads you into the cottage and directly into the cosy living room, with a beamed ceiling and comfortable chairs arranged around a wood burner – perfect for curling up with a good book or watching TV. Next door there’s a petite dining room with double doors opening to the front garden, and a well-equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare a romantic dinner at home. An elegant bathroom with WC and shower over the bath, and a utility room complete the downstairs. An open staircase leads upstairs to the spacious bedroom where a super-king-size bed awaits and a chair offers another perfect reading nook.

Outside, the front garden has a shingle parking area bordered with a lawned garden, while a pretty enclosed courtyard garden is located out the back. Garden furniture allows you to make the most of dining alfresco surrounded by countryside views, to the sounds of birdsong.

Loved it. Homely and cosy. Bed incredibly comfy. The location is wonderful, bird song and peace. Lots to see without having to drive that far. Amenities are good. A very tastefully decorated cottage, what's not to like!! Can definitely recommend

This is a very peaceful and cosy place to stay. It wouldn't be suitable for people who want to cater for themselves all week as the kitchen is extremely small with not much room for food prep., dishing up etc. Great for minimalists!
