Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Cottage in Branthill, Nr. Wells-Next-the-Sea, NR 23 1SB, North Norfolk, England - Lovely Peaceful Rural Location And Close To The Coast

Canary Cottage is a cosy yet spacious single storey cottage which sleeps two people. It is set on a working arable farm on the Holkham Estate 2.5 miles from the renowned seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea with its lovely beach, pine woods and characterful shopping streets. The cottage enjoys views stretching over fields and into Holkham Park (ancestral home to Lord Leicester) and also over its historic farm buildings. This area is a great holiday destination at all times of year, being well placed to explore both coast and countryside. In the summer we offer our guests shared use of the farmhouse's heated outdoor swimming pool and tennis court. It sits beside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as has close proximity to the bird reserves of Titchwell and Cley. We welcome visitors to explore the farm and to observe nature on the doorstep. The cottage has central heating with radiators in each room. Behind the cottage we have a small farm shop selling Norfolk real ales brewed with malt made from the barley which can be seen growing on the farm.

About the Owner

I am Sally Maufe and I moved to Norfolk from London in 1980 and met my husband who was farming here at Branthill Farm on the Holkham Estate, just outside Wells-next-the-Sea. We feel so privileged to live in such a beautiful part of the country. We have three grown up sons and a daughter who live away but come back often as they love it here!

Location

From the Owner

My husband was born on this farm and began farming when he was 22 years old and we have been together since the 1980s. As farming changed over the years and our family grew up and away we decided to offer Canary Cottage as self-catering accommodation for the growing numbers of people that have come to love this area on the north Norfolk coast.

Coast/Beach:

Canary Cottage is 2.5 miles from the town of Wells-next-the-Sea and 3 miles from the town's beach. As well as driving it is possible to walk or cycle to the town/beach.

Wells beach is a beautiful sandy stretch backed by pine woods and charming beach huts. Once on the beach it is possible to walk through the woods or along the beach to Holkham beach the scene of many film sets.

Travel:

As we are in a rural situation, a car is recommended.

Distances:

We are 2.5 miles from Wells-next-the-Sea, 2 miles from Holkham Hall (on foot) and 4 miles by car. The cottage is 6 miles from Burnham Market with its pretty village green, shops, cafes and restaurants. The market town of Holt is approximately 17 miles away having a large variety of shops, art galleries and cafes and a train link to Sheringham. The county capital of Norwich is 30 miles from here and Kings Lynn 25 miles, both with train links to London.

Further Details:

In the town of Wells-next-the-Sea there is a Barclays Bank and a 'hole in the wall'. There are individual shops such as butcher, baker, fishmonger, mini market, delicatessen and gift and clothes shops. There is also a Cooperative Supermarket on the outskirts of town. There is a library, a post office and a doctor's surgery.

There are many types of eating places in the area and Wells has cafes, pubs, and fish and chips are sold on the Quay. There are also good pubs for eating in all the outlying villages.

Many people visit this area because of its wonderful coast where you can mingle with the crowds or find peace and tranquillity on sandy stretches, on the dunes, on the marshes or cliffs. The many charming villages nearby are also worth visiting and Burnham Thorpe, just 3 miles away, is Nelson's birthplace.

Seal trips are offered by Bean's and Temple's of Morston and there is a ferry from the Quay at Wells which takes you through some of the creeks and up to the Lifeboat House.

Churches and stately homes abound and Norfolk is the home to many saxon and Norman round towered churches. Holkham Hall is 4 miles by car and is the home of Lord Leicester while Houghton Hall is 14 miles away and home to Lord Cholomenley.
