Overview

About the property

2 bedroom cottage in pretty village setting, five miles from North Norfolk coast

This is a charming end of terrace cottage in the lovely village of Great Walsingham, close to the beautiful National Trust North Norfolk coastline. We have owned our cottage for nearly thirty years as our holiday home. It has been renovated and modernised whilst retaining its traditional character and features. There are many conveniences - washing m/c, dishwasher, Wifi and You View television. Mobile reception is not reliable, so there is a 24/7 free call facility to UK landlines, and of course you can receive landline calls. It's cosy - there's underfloor and storage heating, and a fan heater and heated towel rail in the bathroom.. There's also a wonderful open fire in the sitting room, with coal and logs supplied. Two bedrooms upstairs, one with a double bed, the other with a sofabed which can be used either as a double, or as two singles. There are plenty of duvets and pillows. The pretty and secluded patio garden has outside furniture, lighting and barbecue. It's very reasonably priced as you bring your own linen and towels. Well-behaved pets are welcome. The kitchen is fullyequipped for cooking at home and the cupboards are well-stocked. Please use our general household items (loo roll, wash up, baked beans, etc) but if anything is getting low, please replenish.

About Fran

We bought our lovely cottage when our children were of primary school age. We have enjoyed family holidays for years exploring the North Norfolk coast and enjoying what it has to offer - sailing, going to see the seals, stately homes, horse-riding, crab-fishing, walking, cycling the Norfolk lanes. The children have long since grown up but "going to Norfolk" is an essential part of their lives. Since I retired from special needs teaching in 2009 I spend about a third of my time at the cottage, and have enjoyed letting friends and family enjoy it too.

Fran purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Fran chose Little Walsingham

I first went to Norfolk when I was in my mid-twenties. I was working in a school for disturbed children in Surrey and one of my colleagues who came from Norfolk had recently bought a holiday cottage there. My husband and I went to stay, with very low expectations of Norfolk as a county - my mother had told me it was "very very flet", because Noel Coward had told her that in his play Private Lives. But wow, not only is central Norfolk not "flet" it is also stunningly beautiful, with huge wide-open skies and glorious beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is such a lovely, cosy place and its village setting is truly beautiful - next to the village green, with the 16th century Manor House opposite, and historic Berry Hall at the bottom of the green (reputedly visited by Henry VIII on one of his pilgrimages to Walsingham).
