Centrally located, it is easy to go west to Hunstanton, Brancaster and Thornham and east to Blakeney, Cromer and Sheringham. Also nearby is the lovely small town of Burnham Market with its upmarket shops, tea rooms and the Hoste Arms. Closer to hand is the market town of Fakenham with its traditional weekly market and Fakenham Racecourse. There are many places of interest to visit and ifor the more adventurous in the nearby woods is the high rope challenge, Extreeme.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, one double with a comfortable kingsize bed. In the second bedroom are two sets of bunk beds, one of which is built in and slightly shorter so would suit children up to around 10/12.
