A tranquil and comfortable romantic retreat for a couple or a great holiday base for a family, this quintessential country cottage nestles in an idyllic village just a few miles from the North Norfolk coast.

The picturesque village of Wiveton overlooks the beautiful Glaven Valley and is an ideal base for enjoying delightful country walks. The charming costal villages of Cley next the Sea and Blakeney are within 2 miles, and are known for their beautiful nature reserves. You can also take a boat trip from Blakeney Point out to see a colony of grey seals. The popular seaside resort of Cromer is 13 miles away and is famous for its traditional seaside activities and entertainment, or you could head to quieter seaside towns like Sheringham or Wells-next-the-Sea, which are within 9 miles. Among many local attractions are Langham Glass, the Muckleburgh Military Collection, Binham Priory and the Thursford Steam Museum.

The cottage is accessed through the garden, down some steps and into the hall, and retains many original features including exposed beams and Pamment flooring. From here you enter the large and cosy lounge which features plenty of comfortable seating, TV and a feature fireplace. There is also a reading area located at one end of the lounge with a bay window overlooking the garden. Exploring further, you will find the attractive shaker-style kitchen/diner which has a delightful dining area and is fully equipped with an oven, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and fridge/freezer. There is also a ground-floor shower room complete with WC. Going upstairs you will find two cosy bedrooms. There’s a spacious double room with a king size bed and plenty of storage, plus a twin room which overlooks the garden and has a sloping ceiling. There is also a WC on the first floor.

Stepping outside, the pretty walled garden has an abundance of cottage garden plants including hollyhocks and gorgeously scented roses. There is a large south-facing lawn around which the flower beds are arranged. Parking is available off-road for one car.

This was a lovely stay in a very pretty, nicely decorated cottage, providing everything we needed. The access way leading to the parking area would be very narrow for a large car, but it's possible to find parking in the lane.

Golden goose was a cosy cottage. Rather dark and cold in the sitting room area, even on a sunny day, but light and airy upstairs. The smallest toilet ever was upstairs, but the downstairs bathroom was well equipped, and the kitchen was lovely. Nice cottage garden to sit outside in. Great location to explore the North Norfolk coast.

Nice cottage in lovely location. Comfy beds. Real Norfolk rural idyll with nice pub a moment's walk away. Garden secure for dog. Would come back.

A lovely location and the cottage well equipped. However the interior was dissappionting as it didn't really match the description online. The house felt small compared to the photos. We couldn't stand up in the upstairs toliet, the downstairs bathroom is basic, not sleek (with a washing machine in) and no bath.

This is a great location with fantastic walks and eateries nearby. Wiveton Hall and walks to Cley and Blakeney are all doable without getting in the car. A cosy ish cottage not quite as big and cosy as it looks online but nice enough. Garden an added bonus. Could be a little cleaner but well equipped and a fantastic shower.

Ideal for short breaks to enjoy the beautiful Norfolk coastline. Everything you need is within a short drive of the property. Great local restaurant within 5 minutes walking distance. A quaint property full of character.
