Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Meadow Cottage offers that much sought after self-catering holiday compromise between seclusion and convenience. Enjoying a lovely rural setting at the end of a private driveway, this sympathetically refurbished barn conversion is nestled within a complex of similar properties in the grounds of a working farm. Meadow Cottage is a perfect base from which to explore the sublime Norfolk coastline and countryside. The cottage has open views on all sides to rolling fields, an enclosed garden complete with patio, outdoor furniture and BBQ, and just to ensure children have absolutely no energy left before bedtime, guests have shared access to a spacious area of grassland located nearby. Two adult guests are entitled to membership of a leisure club and a further four guests can enjoy these facilities at a reduced rate. The ambience both within and without the property is one of seclusion and tranquility- guests cannot fail to relax and unwind here. In terms of exploring the wider area, Meadow Cottage is conveniently located only two miles from the pretty rural town of North Walsham, which has a good range of essential amenities, and only a brief car journey away from the rugged splendour of the Norfolk coastline. The accommodation within this charming, pet-friendly property is all at ground floor level. The property has three bedrooms and can accommodate up to six guests. Assuming full availability, Meadow Cottage can be booked on its own or together with the adjoining River Cottage and Mill Cottage to accommodate larger parties or to celebrate that special occasion with family and friends in style. A refundable damage deposit of £100 or £200 if parties include pets, must be paid prior to arrival

The East Anglia region
The lovely county of Norfolk has been a popular and much loved holiday destination for decades and it is easy to see why. It offers a wonderful contrast between coast and country and a seamless link between rural and urban. Within the county there is mile after mile of rugged and unspoilt coastline, numerous mysterious coves and bays, several internationally renowned nature and bird reserves, in Norwich a ‘capital' city with strong links to its historic past yet offering the very best of modern city living, in Sandringham House a Royal residence of its very own, delectable, picturesque villages, bustling and vibrant market towns and seaside resorts and of course the timeless and magical beauty of the Norfolk Broads. It is also has an extremely active arts and cultural sector with numerous galleries and arts venues located throughout the county. Lovers of wild and unspoilt coastline should visit the gorgeous coastal villages of Burnham Market, Wells-nest-the-Sea, Sheringham and Cromer, to name but a few, in the north of the county, and Mundesley and Sea Palling on the eastern shoreline. For a seaside ‘buzz' there is nowhere better than the friendly resort of Great Yarmouth. For a city fix there is the heritage city of Norwich which consistently features in the top ten of UK shopping locations and hosts the highly regarded Norwich Festival. A great evening can be had at the city's Theatre Royal or along the Riverside Quarter with its excellent range of restaurants, leisure facilities and nightspots. Norfolk has numerous, delightful and picturesque villages, each generally has a character of its own and as the county has over 700 churches, an historic church is never usually far away. History lovers may wish to visit the little church at Burnham Thorpe. The father of the great naval hero Admiral Nelson was the vicar there and the church contains a number of items that once belonged to the country's finest sailor. The Catholic shrine at Walsingham draws visitors from far and wide. Other lovely villages include Great Cressingham, Great Witchingham and Brancaster Staithe- again, to name but a few. Norfolk is rich in historic and seemingly timeless market towns. Highly recommended are Holt, Dereham, Wymondham, Diss- its 16th century provides a wonderful step back into time- and Downham Market. Norfolk, however, is perhaps best known for the network of ancient waterways collectively known as the Norfolk Broads- arguably one of the few examples in our culture where man and the natural environment have worked in harmony. The broads today constitute a stunning, seemingly natural environment and a veritable wildlife haven. Whilst the broads obviously lend themselves to discovery by boat, there is now a network of cycle paths and walking trails that allow ‘landlovers' to experience the almost mystical beauty of this region at first hand. Well worth a visit on a tour of the broads are Wroxham – one of the biggest broadland areas- Ranworth, Stalham and Horning.
This area of Norfolk contains some fantastic areas of coastline, a number of which have successfully integrated holiday activities and entertainment into the local seascape in a sustainable manner. Highly recommended are the seemingly never ending sandy beaches to be found at Happisburgh, Mundesley and Sea Palling, all within comfortable driving distance. Slightly further afield but well worth the effort are the established seaside resorts of Cromer and Sheringham. Water sports are very popular in this area and are available at numerous locations. Shopaholics should enjoy the interesting and unusual shops to be found in the settlements of Wells, Holt and Burnham Market and of course royal watchers will enjoy a visit to the royal residence at nearby Sandringham. On the ‘must do' list should be a trip to the beautiful and historic city of Norwich. The city has an excellent range of attractions which include two gorgeous cathedrals, medieval city walls and the Norwich Castle and Museum. During the holiday season there are regular bus tours and guided walks so visitors have ample opportunity to see and enjoy these architectural gems. Those fond of a spot of retail therapy will be pleasantly surprised to learn that Norwich regularly appears within the UK's top ten shopping destinations! There are two shopping malls to choose from and a superb range of independent retailers. However, no holiday in this stunning region would be complete within a visit to the seemingly timeless Norfolk Broads. The broads are now a designated national park and offer a wonderful escape from the pressures of everyday life. Boating is of course preeminent here but the park also offers amazing country for walking, cycling and bird-watching.
