This stunning property is a real treat for history lovers. It boasts interesting features, up-to-date conveniences and a pizza oven in the garden.
The Manor House, part of which dates back to the 1800s with much of the property alot older, has been thoughtfully restored to retain much of its period charm, with interesting features throughout. This period property has all the up-to-date conveniences that discerning guests require for their perfect getaway. In the dining room, you can still see the old butler bells that were used to summon ‘the help’ in days gone by. There are also traditional open fires and a wood burner to relax by, yet the feel of this beautiful property is still modern, fresh and very light and airy. With lots of places to relax in, you may be tempted to stay home, but if you do head out, you will find lots of great places to explore. In under 15 minutes you can be at bracing Brancaster beach, great for sunbathing in summer and walking in winter. Head east to Holkham beach, which was featured in Shakespeare in Love, and the popular village of Wells-next-the-Sea with its picturesque quay, narrow gauge railway and quaint mix of artisan and traditional seaside shops, cafés and amusements. Further along the coast lies Blakeney, Cley, Sheringham and Cromer with its famous Edwardian promenade and pier.
Pretty coastal villages, many of which offer artisan shops and great places to eat, salt marshes and beaches can be found to the west. The Victorian town of Hunstanton, with it’s famous stripy cliffs, has a beach that really does seem to go on forever and here you will find a small funfair, Sealife Centre and lots of traditional seaside amusements. Aptly named ‘Royal Norfolk’ has lots of stately homes and National Trust properties, including The Sandringham Estate, Peckover House and Gardens, Holkham Hall and Blickling Hall. History lovers should try to squeeze in a visit to the medieval city of Norwich, with it’s magnificent Norman castle and numerous museums, or perhaps visit the hanseatic quarter of Old Kings Lynn, which offers historical tours and, for the brave, ghost walks. There are many opportunities for bird watching at Titchwell Marsh, Scolt Head Island and Cley Marshes, and lots of great cycling routes and beautiful coastal walks. The surrounding area has lots of great places to eat out, many of which serve fresh local produce, but those wishing for a relaxing night in will be spoilt for choice too, with a state of the art kitchen and a pizza oven in the grounds. The Manor House has great places to dine either al fresco or by the wood burner, so foodies and casual diners alike will be delighted that they chose to stay at this stunning property. Beach 10 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
