The Old Saddlery description

Situated in a quiet position overlooking grazed meadowland, quite often the flight path of the resident barn owl, The Old Saddlery is a short distance from the main 16th-century Colkirk Hall farmhouse, rumoured to play host to members of the Gun Powder Plot. The property dates back to the mid-1700s, formally a cart shed and stables and latterly a saddlery through until the mid-1980s when it was remodelled into the Old Saddlery. Great care was taken to preserve some original features such as the beams, but to provide all the modern conveniences needed for a great stay. With two bathrooms, one of which features a free-standing bath, and a cosy living area with a wood burner, there are really lots of reasons to choose this cottage for your holiday.
Coast lovers can be in Wells-next-the-Sea in 20 minutes. Here you will find a wide sandy beach with pretty coloured beach huts, a picturesque quay and a lovely assortment of boutique shops, cafés and restaurants. Head west and explore a coastline littered with pretty coastal villages with beaches and marshes galore. Go as far as Hunstanton and enjoy all the fun of the fair or explore the Sealife Centre. Then head east and stop off at Blakeney to enjoy the traditional pursuit of crabbing or visit Cromer with its famous pier and seasonal end of pier show. The Holkham Hall and Blickling Estates are within easy reach, as is Sandringham, the Hanseatic Quarter of Old Kings Lynn and the medieval city of Norwich. Beach 13 miles.
