Small but perfectly formed, the cottage boasts original features such as beams made from local driftwood (apparently salvaged from Great Yarmouth beach), and a quaint cast iron fireplace which, due to the thatched roof, is no longer in use but still makes an attractive focal point in the living room. On-road unrestricted parking is available immediately outside the cottage. You enter directly into an attractive lounge-diner with a terracotta tiled floor and rug, a 42' screen TV with freeview, a super comfy leather sofa and a drop leaf dining table and chairs for two. Through the lounge-diner is a fully equipped kitchen with all the usual crockery, cutlery and pans, microwave, hob, cooker and automatic washing machine, leading to the backdoor and garden beyond and the staircase up to the double bedroom and en suite shower room. The bedroom floor is wood and has a rug, a wide picture window that looks out onto the village green and the village sign, original art on the walls, a black-out roller blind, a comfortable double bed, flat screen TV on the wall, a bedside cupboard, a dressing table with mirror and stool, a full length mirror, a wall hook and hanger and an antique nursing bedroom chair. The en suite contains two mirrors, wash basin, electric shower and of course the toilet. Facilities in cottage include: hairdryer, hot water bottles, table cloth and table mats, coat hooks, two umbrellas, a fully equipped kitchen including all the essentials plus plunger-style cafetiere, tea towels, washing up liquid, laundry tabs and fabric softener, kitchen paper, towels (two bath and two hand towels per guest plus spares in the airing cupboard), facial tissues, hand soap, a complementary shower scrunchy, toilet paper, iron and table-top ironing board, concertina-style clothes airer, a bistro table and set of two chairs with removable cushions in the decked fully private south-facing garden.

About the neighbourhood
Bakers Cottage is less than ten miles from the coast and is an ideal base for walking, boating, cycling, bird watching, fishing and of course relaxing! The village of Ludham is attractive and quintessentially English, nestling in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. It has a family run carvery pub, a shop (with a delicatessen and a Post Office), butchers and doctors surgery very nearby and the River Thurne and Womack Staithe are just a short walk away. The village stands in an area of Norfolk known as The Norfolk Broads. It is surrounded on three sides by the rivers Ant, Bure and Thurne and it has its own small broad, Womack Water. Wind mills and pumps are abundant!
Getting around
Ludham is on a good bus route including to Norwich, North Walsham, various Broads and Great Yarmouth. Six miles from Bakers Cottage is Hoveton and Wroxham train station which offers regular trains to North Norfolk and the coast including Sheringham and Cromer as well as to Norwich. Sprowston Park and Ride is 11 miles from Ludham and is the easiest way to visit the beautiful and historical City of Norwich. Norwich Airport is 15 miles away. If you want to come by train please head for Hoveton and Wroxham train station (HXM) - this involves a simple change at Norwich Station - and I will collect you and drive you back to Bakers Cottage (a mere six miles).
