Beechwood Cottage (E3706) : Wood Norton
A truly unspoilt rural landscape, less than a mile from the pretty village of Wood Norton, is the peaceful setting for these fine holiday cottages. Lovingly created from handsome barns on the owners’ farm, and boasting spacious, stylish interiors, they stand at right angles to each other around a courtyard. Each cottage boasts its own patio for sitting out and shared use of a tennis court and a play area. Wonderful days out are an easy drive away – along the glorious North Norfolk Coast, visitors can discover picturesque fishing villages with excellent pubs and restaurants (many serving the locally caught seafood), seal watching boat trips and sailing, or enjoy the gentle walking along the Peddars Way and coastal path, taking in bird reserves and miles of dune backed, sandy beaches on the way. Cromer offers traditional seaside amusements as does Sheringham, from where a steam train runs regularly to the charming Georgian town of Holt. Thursford’s steam museum, 500 acres of nature reserve, lakes and gardens at Pensthorpe, and the Norfolk Wildlife Centre are all within a short drive. Boats can be hired to explore the beautiful reed lined waterways of the Broads, and the medieval city of Norwich is easily accessible. Fakenham, with an excellent weekly market, is 7 miles away. Village shop and a pub serving food 2 miles.
