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.

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.

Additional Information
Further logs are available from the log store in the garden at £5 per additional basket.
Sorry, no pets.

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.
