    “The only thing that was a problem was the lack of lighting in the car park and up to the house.”

    Not good in the dark winter nights

    Not good in the dark winter nights But everything else and the owner and family were excellent. Thank you.

The property

A Grade II listed terraced cottage in the village of Great Ryburgh, just four and a half miles from Fakenham.

This Great Ryburgh cottage, which dates from the 1300s and has been a garrison and a guildhall during its lifetime, offers cosy and welcoming accommodation which is full of character, including oak beams, exposed brickwork and an inglenook fireplace.

This quirky Great Ryburgh cottage is set over three floors and offers a variety of bedrooms to suit all parties, with the second floor double bedroom being accessed by a twisting staircase which dates back to the 14th century and with very limited headroom.

With two bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and a sitting room which invites you to simply sit and relax, this Great Ryburgh cottage is ideal for a restful break in this part of Norfolk.

Within 25 minutes you can be at the coast, perhaps in Wells-next-the-Sea or Cromer.

Or, head south to Norwich or Thetford Forest, west to King's Lynn or perhaps spend the day in one of the many National Trust properties Norfolk has to offer.

With the local pub just a couple of minutes' walk from your cottage in Great Ryburgh, this is a wonderful year-round base.
