Our 2 adjoining 19th century farmworkers' cottages are traditional in style and character, with exposed beams. Sitting rooms, kitchens and bathrooms are on the ground floor and double and twin bedrooms upstairs. Each cottage has its own garden at the rear and private parking space at the front. The cottages are in a row of 5 similar properties, in a quiet lane which is used only by these occupants, leading to a farm gate at one end and the road through the village, with large duckpond, at the other. There is a good pub/restaurant just minutes walk away in the village and the nearest general stores is 2 miles.
About the Owner
About Alyson Aronson
We are John and Alyson, with cats Fluffy and Meiko, and we have been visiting North Norfolk for many years. We are semi-retired and love having more time now to escape to Stanhoe, a pretty, traditional village with its lovely duckpond and farmland. We have a large family, now with their own children, who also stay at the cottages from time to time.
Alyson Aronson purchased this cottage in 2004
Why Alyson Aronson chose Kings Lynn & West Norfolk
We fell in love with North Norfolk for its beautiful countryside, beaches and tranquillity and we'd love you to share it too. Our traditional, beamed 19th century farmworkers cottages are set in a quiet lane ending at a gate to a field, so no traffic passes the front door, and far-reaching views over adjoining farmland add to the countryside peace and quiet. But we are not remote from enjoying the many facilities the area has to offer.
What makes this cottage unique
There are many villages to explore, nature trails to follow, and a whole coastal area of unspoilt sandy beaches -the nearest beach is just 10 mins drive through the country lanes. Add to that family attractions, stately homes and gardens, scenic walks, nature reserves all within close proximity, a log fire in the winter and a pub/restaurant 2 minutes walk away!
