Set in the middle of farmland on the edge of the pretty villages of Wiveton and Glandford, this spacious and comfy property is a perfect holiday home for a family looking to enjoy the Norfolk coast.

Gather up your family and let dreams of hazy seaside picnics, bucolic country rambles and family evenings gathered around plates of hot food and bottles of wine come alive. Sleeping up to ten people and three dogs, this five-bedroom quixotic cottage just outside of Wiveton on the Norfolk coast boasts multi-generational appeal with its homely, traditional feel and excellent location. Dive headfirst into exploration and luxuriation and look forward to days you'll cherish forever.

In the heart of working farmland, this property is perfect for large groups of walkers and wildlife lovers looking for somewhere cosy to return to at the end of the day. Surrounded by countryside, the superb views will appeal to all and provide a dynamic backdrop throughout the day – from the pale blues of morning to the burnt orange and terracotta tones of sunset. Heading inside the cottage, you will immediately be met by the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. A quirky melange, book-lined walls, exposed raw features, antiqued furnishings, playful splashes of colour and comfortable seating all combine to create a space you will love spending time in throughout the day. As granny browses the bookshelves and the children scatter to bag their favourite bedroom, you can check out the kitchen and fill up the fridge with food and fizz. In summer, this space can be opened up via the oak doors that lead out onto the large enclosed courtyard; enjoy the feeling of a cool breeze and fresh air as you plate up the dining table ready for meals at home. With so much space to enjoy outside, the more energetic youngsters in your party can work up an appetite playing on the lawn and climbing frame. A working farm, outdoor games will be accompanied by the gentle bleeting of sheep; just remember to put your pups on their leads if the sheep are close by! When energies have been exhausted and tummies filled, gather in front of the warming glow of the lounge's woodburner. For some good old-fashioned family entertainment before bed enjoy a card or boardgame, or switch on the TV for an action-packed movie night.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Despite COVID, the place needed a thorough clean! We put all the plates & cutlery in the dishwasher BEFORE we used anything. The sofas were old & unbearably uncomfortable. Curtains were tatty with tears. We didnt touch the books as they looked worn & grubby. And the FLIES! Loads of them. All the time, despite killing them constantly

It is a highly individual,interesting, comfortable and well equipped, family holiday home. The location is idyllic if you like isolation. It is in the middle of fields, on the edge of a wood and overlooking the coast,which does mean that there is half a mile of stony track to get there.
