A beautiful bijou and romantic bolt hole just perfect for two (or one), this former Holkham Estate cottage has been transformed by the owners into a delightful oasis of calm. Only 200 yards from fresh water marsh, and a little further to salt water marsh and the North Norfolk coastal path, Goldfinch Cottage is a birder's and walker's paradise. Wonderful for a 'get away from it all' type of break - this is somewhere to kick off your shoes, really relax, and enjoy listening to the sounds of nature all around you.
This charming mid terrace cottage has everything you will need for enjoying this wonderful part of North West Norfolk at any time of year. Compact in size, but well-equipped with clever use of space, the cottage is decorated and comfortably furnished in a fresh and contemporary cottage style, with an open-plan light and airy living space to the ground floor, warmed by a wood burning stove for cooler months, and a pretty bedroom with king size bed and views across the garden to the marshes and Burnham Overy Windmill beyond on the first floor.
Burnham Norton, a hamlet made up of pretty flint cottages, is tucked away down a quiet lane off the main coast road, and nestles on the edge of Norton Marsh which is rich in birds and wildlife. There are no shops or pubs in the village so just put on your boots, grab your binoculars, and stretch your legs with a forty minute walk across the fields and marshes to the deserted Norton Beach.
Further logs are available from the log store in the garden at £5 per additional basket.
Sorry, no pets.
A stable door leads into the open-plan living area comprising kitchen, sitting and dining areas
A newly fitted contemporary kitchen with terracotta tiled floor and range of cupboards with integrated electric cooker, dishwasher and fridge with ice box. A window, with louvre blinds for privacy, overlooks the neighbouring property's driveway.
To one side of the room is a small dining area with circular glass topped table and stylish and comfortable with Italian dining chairs.
A two seater sofa and armchair focus around the wood burning stove and flat screen television with DVD player. If you prefer to spend the evening relaxing and listening to your favourite music, there is a Ruark blue tooth speaker to enjoy. A basket of logs will be provided.
An open tread wooden staircase leads to
A pretty cottage-style bedroom with king-size bed and painted furniture with views over the garden to the marshes and Burnham Overy Windmill in the distance.
A modern bathroom with bath and overhead mixer shower, wash basin and WC.
There is a sunken patio area immediately outside the cottage, with garden furniture and barbecue. Steps lead up to the enclosed gravelled garden with inset planting and log store.
A gateway takes you through to the shared parking area, where there is allocated parking for two cars.
Burnham Norton is one of the seven Burnham villages. This hamlet of pretty cottages is situated down a quiet lane off the main coast road and nestles on the edge of Norton Marsh which is rich in bird and wildlife. There are no shops or pubs in the village but it is a walker's paradise.
A forty minute walk across the fields and marshes will take you to the deserted Norton Beach and at low tide you can wade out to Scolt Head Island or up to Burnham Overy Staithe.
The popular neighbouring village of Burnham Market with shops, cafes and Hoste Arms is just over one mile away and there are shops at Burnham Deepdale just a few miles to the west.
Don’t forget to visit Holkham, considered the best beach in the UK and where the closing scenes of Shakespeare In Love were filmed.
With numerous stately homes; including Houghton Hall; Felbrigg and Blickling and of course HM The Queen’s Sandringham residence to visit, you will adore the variety and natural feel this wonderful coast offers.
Immerse yourself in the birdlife at Titchwell, Snettisham or Cley-next-the-Sea reserves, or of course Pensthorpe where you can enjoy a wildlife safari.
