Gorgeous newly renovated cottage oozing character & charm. North Norfolk coast.

A pretty character cottage decorated in a relaxed style in the heart of the small village of Ringstead. The village has a fantastic pub and local shop and is 1.75 mile inland from both Old Hunstanton and Holme next the Sea, & 3 miles from popular Thornham, so a perfect base to explore North Norfolk. It is in a conservation area and designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Take a look at the village website for local photos and updates etc : www.ringsteadparish.info/index.htm

* Suitable for a getaway for four adults or for a family of 4 (children over 4 years only please because of its Norfolk winder stairs-see below)

Ground floor - entrance from road to:
Sitting room-new wood burner, 2 new sofas, natural jute rug, smart freeview TV, coffee table, 2 footstools
Door to Kitchen- rustic/contemporary kitchen/diner units all brand new, including appliances; old pine table, antique Hungarian settle, Eames style chairs and french doors to the garden. DAB radio.
Door from sitting room to fairly steep stairs to:
First floor bedroom 1 - twin room with comfy new beds with new pocket sprung mattresses, en suite bath and shower room. Stripped pine floorboards. Natural rug. Old pine chest of drawers and hanging rail. Bedside stools, lamps.
Landing and steep Norfolk winding stairs to:
Second floor, bedroom 2- new king size bed & new pocket sprung mattress in this original attic room, and a new ensuite rainfall shower room and loo.. Painted floorboards. Natural rug. Old pine chest of drawers, hanging rail, chair and mini sofa. Bedside tables with lamps. Roberts DAB radio.
PLEASE NOTE: this top bedroom has sloping ceilings on two sides with a vaulted ceiling and a shower height of 6'2 ( really tall people please be aware!). Note also: This ensuite is very small but functional.
ALSO NOTE: we will no longer be accepting dogs from 2019. However, they have stayed in the past and very rarely a family dog will occasionally still stay and whilst the cottage is meticulously cleaned afterwards, if you have animal allergies this may be something to consider before booking.

Back: Pretty partly walled courtyard garden which is fully enclosed (so ideal for dogs and young children) with contemporary outdoor sofas, glass topped dining table, egg chair, arbour and BBQ-perfect for reading, lounging, and drinking in the sun. Accessed from the kitchen via stable door and french doors.
Front: The cottage fronts on to the High Street with roadside parking directly outside

The cottage is unsuitable for children under 4 particularly toddlers, and the elderly because of the steep winder stairs and different floor levels inside and outside.

To note: Ringstead is a small, pretty, traditional village just inland from Old Hunstanton in a conservation area full of pretty cottages and houses, surrounded by farmland. It is a fairly quiet village in winter but there can be a fair amount of traffic through the village in the summer months because of tourists due to the proximity to the beach, but it has the advantage of being just inland enough from the Coast not to be as busy as the Coast road (which passes through the busy villages of Old Hunstanton, Thornham and Brancaster) and has its own great pub and village shop. It is a working village and, as such, there will be tractors, horses and usual daily traffic passing through. As with many Norfolk cottages, parking is roadside ( or if you prefer there is off road parking at the little village hall 2 mins away). We are in the old High Street, next to the original butchers shop and opposite the old bakery and the front door of the cottage enters the sitting room straight from the road so care would need to be taken with very small children and lively dogs. If you have any questions in advance of booking about any of the above, please feel free to ask.

The village has the acclaimed Gin Trap Inn just up from the cottage ( a dog and child friendly 17th Century coaching inn, with log fires and a great menu and large range of gins -117 flavours!). There is a locally stocked village shop with antiques, a plant nursery, and a grassed playground and church, all within a couple of minutes walk.

The cottage is perfectly located for visiting the beautiful sandy beaches of Old Hunstanton and Holme Next the Sea, (3/4 mins drive) Thornham (3 miles/5 mins drive) Brancaster,(10 mins) and Holkham (15) and Wells. Walkers will also love the walks from the cottage in Ringstead Downs and Peddars way. The cottage is an ideal getaway for beach, walking, bird watching and golf. Close by are the large private houses, Holkham Hall, Houghton Hall, and Sandringham Palace and if you fancy boutique shopping or a drink at The Hoste Arms, the reknowned trendy and vibrant Georgian village of Burnham Market is a 15 minute drive away.
