About the property

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 and 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 Sally Maufe

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!

Sally Maufe purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Sally Maufe chose Norfolk & The Broads

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Canary Cottage is special because it is situated on this working arable farm overlooking its fields and historic farm buildings. It is situated on the Holkham Estate and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty famous for both its beautiful coast and countryside which can be explored by car, bike or foot.

It is 2.5 miles from the bustling seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea renowned for its sandy beach and characterful shopping streets.
