House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In the lawned garden of this attractive and beautifully furnished, detached holiday cottage, a handsome pine building houses an exclusive indoor heated swimming pool and outdoor hot tub. Also in the grounds are swings and a small playhouse for the children. The interior of Victoria Cottage boasts a lovely living room to relax in with a flatscreen TV and open fire.
Its peaceful setting is less than 5 miles from the sea, within the 7-acre wooded grounds of the owners' home. From Morston (4½ miles), local boatmen ferry passengers to the bird sanctuary of Blakeney Point, or to observe basking seals, or to the National Trust nature reserve. Blakeney (5 miles) offers shops, inns, good walking and water sports. The coast itself is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering wide sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-sea and Holkham, where there is also a pretty pine forest. For art lovers, Holkham Hall holds a good collection of paintings within its Palladian exterior - including canvases by Van Dyck, Rubens and Gainsborough. Within the grounds - quietly grazed by deer - there is plentiful birdlife, and from atop the mound where an 80ft obelisk rises, visitors can view both the hall and its triumphal arch.
For walkers the North Norfolk Coastal Path is ideal, or an alternative is the nature trail in the Georgian market town of Holt. Sheringham is for activities such as golf, swimming at the Splash aqua pool, a visit to Sheringham Hall, a ride on the North Norfolk steam railway, relaxing on a Blue Flag beach or strolling down the promenade and around the pier. Seaside attractions, shops and inns can be found at Upper Sheringham, whilst Cromer is only 14 miles away. Stately homes to visit in the area include Felbrigg Hall (a charming Jacobean mansion with walled garden surrounded by parkland) which lies a couple of miles south-west of Cromer, and Blickling Hall (also Jacobean, famous for its long gallery, and superb plasterwork ceilings) and gardens.
