Martham, Norfolk, East Anglia, England
This is a quaint and cosy traditional thatched cottage with log burning stove and loads of character. It is more than 300 years old, is Grade 2 listed, has many quaint features such as a traditional Norfolk inglenook fireplace. It is on the edge of a conservation area and is opposite the medieval parish church which can be seen from the principal bedroom window.

It is within a mile of the Norfolk Broads, and is ideally located for visits to and walks around the Broads. It is three miles from the sandy beaches at Winterton. It is well pocated for visits to all the attractions in the Broads area.

Interaction with guests
We do not live in the area, and we rely on guests accessing the keys themselves from a Masterlock box at the rear of the cottage to which we provide the access code after the final payment is made.

Our cleaners live in the next village and are available for any immediate needs, and we have a maintenance man who is very good and will come out to any urgent needs.

We have yet to face a problem that we have been unable to resolve through local staff.

We stayed at the cottage for 4 nights over the Easter period. Martham is well positioned to explore The Broads. We opted to travel by car however there's a bus stop a few paces away. We frequented The Kings Arms in Martham a few times during our stay. They've some great ciders! The landlady is lovely & they're dog friendly...

Management response:

Thanks Becca, and its far comment about the log-burner. We hope to have it resolved at the end of June 2017, but it is a rather big complex job involving the conservation officer.

I think this cottage is fantastic and in a great location to visit East Norfolk!! The property is more in Martham than Potter Heigham (a small point and it's only 2 miles or so away) - which suited us perfectly as it has more facilities and green spaces for the kids to play on and a lovely duck pond and...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind comments. You were great guests. Water heating heats for an hour, so just push the button again. I'll change the note that implies it'll provide enough for a day. Might be true for a couple, but not for a family, and the cottage is large enough for a young family.

Had a week here in February to explore the area. The cottage is extremely well-equipped and comfortable. Richard & Helen have thought of everything. Well done !

About the neighbourhood
Martham is a large village in the county of Norfolk, England and lies within the Broads National Park. It is situated some 10 miles north-west of the town of Great Yarmouth and 16 miles north-east of the city of Norwich. Martham has become increasingly popular over the years due to its parish church, St Mary’s, which has been dubbed the 'Cathedral of the Fleggs'. It is the biggest and grandest church for miles around, and offers spectacular views from the tower. St Mary's most magnificent treasure is the collection of medieval glass in the east windows of the south and north aisles. These are visible from the principal bedroom window of the cottage, although you need to get closer to see the detail! They consist of a series of more than twenty panels of individual saints and sc... more
Getting around
It is usually easiest to have a car to reach local sites.

However, we have one set of friends who regularly stay at our cottage who don't have a car and take the coach or train to Great Yarmouth and use the no. 1 hourly bus from Great Yarmouth that comes past our cottage and use the bus stop 50 metres from the cottage. (The 1A bus is also available hourly from Great Yarmouth, but takes a different route into the village and can drop you in the village centre, but doesn't come past the cottage).

The hourly no 1 Bus can also take you to Winterton for the beach on its way back to Great Yarmouth, from which it is an 800 mere walk to the beach itself.
