Located a ten-minute drive from the market town of Fakenham, this lovingly restored cottage is a cosy base from which to explore Norfolk’s countryside and coastline. The interiors are thoroughly up to date, while original ceiling beams serve as nods to the home’s history. What we loved the most about the place was the attention to sustainability – think eco-friendly underfloor heating and innovative low energy lighting but at no expense to the comfort levels. When the sun’s out, fire up the barbecue and spend your time relaxing on the patio. Play lawn games with the little ones or enjoy a game of tennis on the all-weather courts. If the clouds look fit to burst, the on-site games room will keep the kids occupied as you enjoy a rejuvenating swim in the communal indoor pool. Hire bicycles and go for a ride along quiet lanes to pretty villages or take the ten-minute drive to Wells-next-the-Sea for colourful beach huts and families of chubby seals resting on the sandbanks.
