    “A genuine home from home - one of the best we've experienced for a few years (and we are seasoned self-caterers).”

    My only small complaint is that the access to the parking is a really tight turn through an archway and my car - a Ford Fiesta (which I consider to be small) - only just managed it with wing mirrors folded in. On street parking is OK but a lot of traffic comes past so you worry your car will be damaged. The pre-arrival advice could be more specific. Otherwise, if it wasn't already booked up for Easter we would have booked to go back so much did we enjoy our break in The Bothy

The property

Walsingham 1.2 miles.

Resting in the charming area of north Norfolk is this delightful sleepy village of Great Snoring, offering picturesque countryside surroundings, and home to this wonderful mid-terrace cottage, The Bothy.

Suited to a family or group of six looking to enjoy walks in the great outdoors, strolls along the coast and heart-warming food in excellent country pubs.

Relax and re-charge your batteries in this beautifully refurbished Victorian cottage, furnished to a very high standard with Laura Ashley furniture and furnishings.

Enter this homely abode and come straight into the dining room, where pretty pastel colours, floral feature wallpaper and natural wood flooring create a harmonious and quaint interior, a lovely spot to begin your day with some breakfast and a fresh coffee from the espresso machine, or end your day here with an evening meal.

Travel under the archway into the sitting room where a woodburning stove set within a blue tiled fireplace is waiting to warm your toes, as you spread out on the sofa or on one of the plush armchairs, with the TV at hand for entertainment.

When you're feeling peckish rustle up something tasty in the gorgeous kitchen, where ornately designed tiles line the floor and muted grey units house the excellent appliances, you can enjoy a glass of wine as the dinner cooks in the large electric double oven, or indulge in the welcome pack kindly provided by the owner, containing wine and biscuits.

Head out of the stable door and into the garden for some alfresco dining on the superb patio and seating area, an excellent feature especially in summer when the weather is warm.

Up on the first floor is where you will retreat to at night, with three bedrooms each beautifully furnished and decorated with their own charming colour schemes, choose from a king-size room with a beautiful white ornate wrought-iron bed frame, with a yellow and floral theme, a twin room with hues of lilac, and finally a bunk room adorned in blue, there’s even a bed for your canine companion with freshly laundered bedding!

Indulge in a hot soak in the stand-alone roll-top bath, surrounded by a seaside theme, or step into the spacious double walk-in shower for a refreshing splash.

Enjoy alfresco dining in the courtyard and let the children kick a ball in the back garden.

Spend a day at Wells beach, visit the Georgian town of Holt, and take a trip to Cley, famous for its nature reserve and rare birds.

Enjoy some lovely walks with your dog and explore the delightful North Norfolk Coast.
