Set in a large, idyllic garden in the heart of the North Norfolk countryside, this spacious, welcoming and comfortable holiday home offers fantastic family accommodation just a couple of miles from the coast.

Wiveton is a charming village set on the banks of the River Glaven. This former port is steeped in history and features a medieval church as well as a great pub and cafe. There are plenty of wonderful walks to enjoy in the area, with Wiveton Downs offering some excellent views. The lovely nearby coastal villages of Cley next the Sea (2 miles) and Blakeney (1.5 miles) are both famous for their wonderful nature reserves which are a haven for keen birdwatchers. From Blakeney Point you can take a boat trip out to see a colony of grey seals. The popular seaside town of Cromer is just 12 miles away and offers plenty of traditional seaside holiday activities.


On entering this lovely property you will find a cosy and inviting lounge, which is a large, light and sunny room with a triple aspect and views over the garden, with plenty of comfortable seating, TV, DVD and a wood burner effect electric fire. There’s also a bright and attractive dining room with double doors opening onto the patio, as well as a charming snug with CD and a woodburner effect electric fire. The spacious and stylishly designed kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, freezer and a fridge with an ice compartment. The property also features a large utility room with a WC and storage space for walking boots, coats, crabbing lines and buckets and spades. There are two staircases leading to the first floor. The first staircase will lead you to a lovely double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Heading up the second set of stairs you will find three further spacious bedrooms with delightful far-reaching country views. There are two double rooms, and a single room, but please note there are some low ceilings. There is also a bathroom complete with a bath and separate shower cubicle, as well as a separate WC.


The gardens have a wonderful romantic cottage garden feel to them with deep borders full of long-established rose bushes, a large lawn and a patio where you can relax and enjoy a BBQ. Ample parking for up to three vehicles is available at the front of the house. Please note that the property is accessed via a 50m unpaved farm track which is also used by farm vehicles.
