Brooke Cottage is quite simply everything you would imagine from a traditional old Norfolk cottage. Grade II listed, and dating from the 17th century, there's a huge inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, a twisty, steep winder staircase, original pine latched doors, a lovely brass bed and views over the green of an historical village. The cottage is furnished beautifully with period and comfortable furniture. The doors are low so you may need to remember to duck your head!
The cottage is situated in a peaceful and pretty area on a quiet country lane. The River Stiffkey runs through the village and there is a ford to drive through - although there is an alternative route if you wish! The popular coastal resort of Wells-next-the-Sea with its independent shops, cafes, restaurants, fabulous Quay and stunning beach is a few minutes’ drive away.
Two well behaved dogs welcome (small additional charge).
Norfolk Winder stairs are, as with older character cottages, enclosed, steep, curved and narrow. At Brooke Cottage they are wooden with a vertical hand rail.
Please note: there is renovation work being carried out at the property opposite Brooke Cottage. This should cause minimal disruption but there could be some noise during working hours only.

Great Walsingham, in true Normal for Norfolk style is actually smaller than Little Walsingham its more famous neighbour.
The two villages are bisected by the River Stiffkey and the braver of visitors can drive through the picturesque ford providing you have a large enough vehicle.
This is a lovely spot to come and sit and watch the water float by and walk along the river bank. It is much more peaceful than Little Walsingham with a beautiful mediaeval church which retains much of its original art and carvings.
There is a craft barn and local cafe serving very delicious lunches and light snacks.
The coast at Wells next the Sea is a very short drive away.
