Property code: OC-2302

This romantic hideaway for two is situated on the southern edge of the Broads National Park in a glorious country landscape – and within half a mile of a good pub. The Broads are Britain’s largest protected wetland and a unique area to explore by boat, canoe, kayak or on foot, with more than 125 miles of waterways and nature trails to discover. Head out with a picnic and let nature restore and revitalise you. This part of the county is also perfect for birdwatching and cycling, while if you venture to the east coast, the beaches are long stretches of sand that are often quiet, even in summer. Winterton-on-Sea (7 miles), for example, has a stunning, unspoilt beach, while at Horsey Gap (11 miles) you can view the local grey seal colony in winter. Vintage car enthusiasts won’t want to miss the Caister Castle Car Collection, 2.5 miles away, while Caister itself is only 3 miles and Great Yarmouth 6.5 miles.

A traditional brick building all on one level, the cottage is full of light, with plenty of space in which to relax, and has been thoughtfully decorated for comfort and convenience. At one end of the open-plan lounge/diner is a sofa, an armchair and the TV, while at the other is a dining table for two. The pretty kitchen has ample space in which to prepare delicious meals, snacks and picnics, and the charming king-size bedroom is made all the more comfortable by its traditional-style metal bed with wool-filled pillows and duvets (you may just have the best sleep of your life). Last but not least, the en-suite shower room has a huge walk-in shower with both overhead and hand-held showers.

Outside the cottage is a flower-filled courtyard with a bistro dining set and a ceramic-oven charcoal BBQ – a sunny spot in which to grill some supper or simply sit and enjoy the huge skies and fresh air of this lovely part of Norfolk.

With a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and dining area. Leading to the bedroom equipped with a super king sized bed heading to shower room with a large walk in shower.

You need to update directions to the cottage ASAP. The written directions take you miles away from the cottage and we had to ask a local ,who had already had a number of people asking for the same place,for directions. It is best to go from Acle Bridge on the A1064 towards Caister. Drive for approximately 5 miles and then turn right by the King's HRead moreead Pub. The cottage is approximately half a mile down the road on the right hand side. EASY. Hide
