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.

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.

Beautiful area and a lovely cottage, close to being 5 stars but for some issues: Parking is a major issue and the parking space wasnt usable because guests next door needed to park outside their cottage. We ended up parking off road nearby. Also very uncomfortable sofa and grass is garden not cut. A shame because fantastic location and really nice Read morecottage overall. Hide

Nice cottage could do with a bit more attention to detail and the it would be fab . Decor could do with a freshen up in places not a lot of effort needed to make all the difference

Parking is a major issue. When we arrived there was another car in the drive for the adjacent cottage. Fortunately they were in and could move. If they had been out, access would have been impossible. Very difficult to get a family sized car in and out and need to park on the road. Cottage was cold and damp when we arrived and smelt musty.

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.

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.

Be very careful when renting this property if your car is wider than normal (narrow lane) or is longer than a medium saloon car. Entrance is narrow, and access is used for parking by neighbouring property - who own it - and parking is best done on the road, but other vehicles (including Dust cart) need to pass.
