A wonderfully secluded former schoolhouse situated within 1 acre of grounds and offering stunning period accommodation for two guests, in the Norfolk village of Saxlingham.

The village of Saxlingham, where this cottage is situated, is a wonderfully peaceful part of the world surrounded by rolling countryside and perfect for enjoying scenic walks and cycle rides. Those with an interest in history or architecture may like to pop into the village church which has some fine examples of stained glass windows dating as far back as the 13th century. 4 miles to the east of the village, the market town of Holt is a great place to spend an afternoon wandering round the shops and stopping for lunch in one of the numerous eateries, whilst the North Norfolk coast with its beaches, harbour villages, and wildlife reserves can also be reached within a 4-mile drive.

Stepping inside this former schoolhouse for the first time, guests will immediately gain a sense of the property’s history. The main living area extends to 30’ and has a high beamed ceiling which has been beautifully maintained by the owners. Despite the grandeur of the room, the lounge area has a lovely cosy feel to it, with its deep sofa and open fire. In the corner of the room a TV/DVD provides entertainment in the evenings, whilst there is also a piano which will no doubt delight musical guests. The kitchen area is at the opposite end of the property, tucked away under the stairs and comes equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. Wooden stairs lead to a partially galleried bedroom, a romantic space with a double bed situated under the eaves. (Please do be careful of the reduced head-height). The bathroom, meanwhile, has been finished in a contemporary style and offers a shower-over-bath and WC.

Outside, the property boasts an amazing 1 acre of grounds which has been mainly left to long grass in order to welcome a host of local wildlife. A path has been mowed to allow guests to wander around and to thoroughly enjoy the peaceful location. Garden furniture is provided, and it really is lovely to sit outside as the sun goes down and enjoy al fresco drinks in your private retreat. There is off-road parking available.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.
