An enchanting, 17th century mid-terrace cottage ideally situated in the large village of Briston, close to the most popular destinations of the North Norfolk coast. Full of character, this lovely accommodation has been renovated to retain period charm with the modern convenience of en-suite bathrooms. Fred’s Cottage offers exposed oak beams, a fantastic inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and a well-equipped kitchen to provide accommodation for up to six people. There is space to relax in front of the fire on winter evenings, or during the summer why not enjoy a meal in the cottage garden after a day on the beach, birdwatching, or walking or cycling along the many quiet back roads? The cottage provides an ideal base from which to explore this lovely area. The village itself has a good butchers and bakery and fresh fish shed, as well as a shop, Post Office and two pubs, whilst the Georgian market town of Holt with its tempting tea rooms, antique emporiums and fascinating steam railway is close by.
