Holiday Rental House
This lovely brick and flint cottage is one of a terrace of three cottages, on a quiet country lane at the mid-point between the four villages of Great Walsingham, Wighton, Binham and Hindringham. It looks onto rolling fields in all directions and has a beautiful large wild garden of about half an acre, full of flowers. You cannot beat it for a rural retreat, about ten minutes' drive from the North Norfolk coast, with its glorious beaches. Downstairs is a newly-fitted kitchen, with electric twin oven, microwave, induction hob and dishwasher, and a separate pantry with fridge and freezer. The kitchen is open to the dining-room, which has a working fireplace and gives onto a paved south-facing terrace, with a table and benches for outdoor meals, all looking across the fields.

You cannot beat it for a rural retreat, about ten minutes' drive from the North Norfolk coast, with its glorious beaches.

The kitchen is open to the dining-room, which has a working fireplace and gives onto a paved south-facing terrace, with a table and benches for outdoor meals, all looking across the fields. Next to the dining room is a spacious sitting room with a new TV (can play Catch-up TV) and DVD player, wood-burning stove and i-pod dock. Upstairs is a large bedroom with a superking-sized bed, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom. The two double bedrooms have incredible views over the fields behind the cottage, while the single bedroom looks out on the front garden. All the beds have electric blankets. The bathroom has a walk-in shower as well as a bath. The brick outhouse behind the cottage has a garden room with a second fridge and a washing machine, as well as a wet-room which provides a useful second loo as well as another shower (great for washing children straight from the beach or muddy dogs). The cottage is very much a family home and is furnished as such: it has a personal feel to it, and a stay here will feel like going to a friend's house. There are family paintings on the walls, and some of the furniture is antique, as are the Turkish kilims, but some things are more shabby. There is wifi, and pets are welcome by arrangement, but no smoking inside the cottage please. Bed linen and towels are provided, but please bring your own beach towels. Firewood will be provided for visitors staying between October and April. More

Lovely rural setting. Stunning wild flower gardens. Very comfortable and well equipped cottage which has been beautifully furnished with an eclectic mix of paintings and soft furnishings. We loved it and wanted for nothing. Great location with easy access to everywhere we wanted to go.

We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope that you will return in warmer months - the joys of the summer months outside are a wonderful contrast to the comfort of sitting by the fire on cold winter days!

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in an exceptionally beautiful spot, sited at the midpoint between the four villages of Great Walsingham, Hindringham, Binham and Wighton, in a row of four labourers' cottages on a small lane. The views to the back across the rolling hills and water meadows are just stunning. The nearest pub is under 2 miles away in Binham, which also has a good shop and petrol. Two miles in the other direction is Little Walsingham with its excellent restaurant, the Norfolk Riddle, and wonderful farm shop
How to get there
I will send you directions about a week before your arrival date. You will need a car as the cottage is in quite an isolated spot, which is part of its attraction.
