This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

This attractive semi-detached brick and flint cottage stands beside the coast road between Wells and Brancaster. The cottage stands in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and to the front has views across the road to the mill stream. It is close to the North Norfolk Heritage Coast and there is good walking all around with footpaths from the door, through the meadows opposite, across to the coast.

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
small lobby with steps down to kitchen/dining room, sitting room with multi-fuel stove. Utility room and lavatory off lobby.
First floor
three bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin and 1 single), bathroom with shower over bath.
Visitor notes

Heating: Oil central heating included.

Parking: There is parking for three cars behind the cottage.

Garden: There is a small paved area to the side of the garden.

The road and mill pool are very close to the cottage and so young children will need to be supervised.

Offers: Holiday cottage guests have free entry to selected local National Trust properties during their stay, listings can be found in the cottage welcome folder.

Please note: The drive and yard area beside the cottage is fenced but care needs to be taken particularly crossing to the shared unfenced, riverside grassed area opposite as the cottage is on a sharp bend on the coast road, which can be busy at certain times of the day and in the peak season.

Things to see and do nearby

East Anglia, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

    Our stay was made enjoyable due to....

    How warm the cottage was and its quiet pretty location. Well stocked kitchen. Location near to beaches and walks and pretty local town. Cleanliness of property. Ability to have friends and family stay.

    Well furnished property

    Well furnished property; generous heating and hot water. The extra comfort over other (non-NT) properties made any extra cost well worthwhile.

    Made enjoyable...

    It was very easy to book over the phone once we'd made our choice. The location was beautiful. The information and directions sent through were excellent. The cottage was very comfortable and it was lovely to be able to take the dog and the provision of towels and bowl for the dog was a nice touch. The outside tap was useful but it would have been great to have had a hose attachment to wash him off properly after a walk on the marshes. Having never booked a holiday cottage before we were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the property and level of comfort. The provision of fresh semi skimmed milk in the fridge on arrival was a good touch as I was expecting just UHT portions which I hate.
