The property

This detached bungalow is situated in the small Norfolk village of Briston, less than five miles from the historic market town of Holt.

Conveniently placed for exploring the diverse range of Norfolk attractions, this bungalow provides comfortable accommodation for couples and families alike.

This spacious bungalow has a cosy sitting room with electric fire, and a conservatory with a dining table, the ideal space to enjoy a family mealtime gathering.

There are also two bedrooms, one with a double bed with en-suite and the other with a twin, along with a family bathroom, making this perfect for a family holiday.

The enclosed rear garden is the perfect place for relaxing and considering how to spend your time over the coming days as the children and the dogs play in safety.

Maybe you will just decide to sit and relax whilst enjoying a good read, with a glass of something cool perhaps.

A few minutes’ walk brings you to the village pub and shops, whilst the historic market town of Holt is just a short drive away and offers excellent amenities with its wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs.

Within easy reach there are many attractions, including the racecourse at Fakenham, the Thursford Collection, or perhaps you take a ride on a steam train from Holt on the North Norfolk Railway to Sheringham, with its stunning sandy beaches and popular seaside attractions.

For cyclists there is the Norfolk Coast Cycleway, or alternatively spend a day beside the sea at one of the many other Norfolk coastal towns including, Wells-next-the-Sea or Holkham.

Nature lovers will be spoilt for choice over the extensive wildlife on offer in Norfolk, particularly the RSPB reserves to be found near the coast.

This centrally-located bungalow is an ideal base for exploring the wonders of Norfolk at any time of the year.
