The ground floor at this Norfolk cottage is dominated by the superb pillared sitting room, where you can relax in luxury after a day spent exploring the area. Then ascend the magnificent spiral staircase to reach two beautifully furnished bedrooms, one with a small balcony, and a family bathroom which make up the accommodation on the first floor. Outside is a private enclosed courtyard garden where you can plan the day's adventures over a morning cup of coffee, before strolling to the local shop to pick up supplies.
