One of four properties with a unique history dating back to World War 2 and beautiful period furniture throughout. This is great for families with a good size enclosed garden with lawn and seating.

History tells us the officers have painted a set of murals on the walls which the currently owners have lovingly preserved to provide a unique insight into life in World War 2. The unique location also offers a water tower which stands proudly within the complex. The location is in the heart of Norfolk country with quiet lanes and footpaths for providing a safe environment for peaceful walking and cycling. Norfolk golf club is close by for those wanting a day or two on the course. The seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer are a great day out, don’t forget to stop for fish and chips. Norwich provides an array of shops and restaurants to enjoy, and great transport links.

Stepping into the property you come to the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which provides everything you need for a home away from home stay with electric oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer dishwasher and washing machine. The lounge area boasts comfortable seating for the whole family and a dining table which is the perfect place for a lazy breakfast. The wood burner effect gas fire is the focal point of the room and the patio doors lead off into the garden. In the hallway you will find a real treasure of history, there are two bikes suspended on the walls which were left by USA  servicemen after the war.  The master bedroom is impeccably stylish and offers a beautiful romantic king-size French bed, single sofa and en-suite with WC. There is a single bedroom. Finally the shower room with shower and WC.

Outside there is an enclosed lawned area with patio which is accessed via the patio doors from the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. There is a charcoal BBQ available for use. The outside space is overlooking the surrounding countryside and there is off-road parking for two cars.

A lovely cosy well presented clean and bright cottage. Very much home from home. The garden was a brilliant size and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves. With the garden being fenced in we had no worries they would get out and they were totally safe. We are going back in May.

Superb in every way, beautifully finished, a credit to the owners. Quiet location, a bit out of the way but this made it very peaceful. Our 'Goldy' loved the garden which is very well kept and totally enclosed. Five stars with no reservations.

The cottages was spacious and had excellent heating and double glazing. The furnishings were first class. Parking was adjacent to the cottage and there was a large garden and a patio with seating for warmer weather. Everything was supplied so all we had to do was buy food. The owners were friendly and kept a low profile. The history of the site gavRead moree it an added interest. Hide
