Description

Kingfisher Cottage forms the northern end of a converted barn in the spectacular grounds of Itteringham Mill. It is extremely spacious and has great views across the millpond. The bedroom is on a galleried landing above the sitting room. The sitting room is very large with a north and west dual aspect but also receives light through the wide archway into the kitchen (east). It has a large comfortable sofa with plenty of cushions and a flat screen HD TV with Freeview. The bathroom, which is accessed via a small lobby off the sitting room, has an electric shower, wash-hand basin and WC. The kitchen is double aspect (north and east) and well equipped with electric cooker and hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge, kettle, toaster and mini radio/CD player. There is a good range of crockery, glassware, pans and cutlery.

Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

Norfolk isn't on the road to anywhere and as a result has maintained its rural charm pretty well intact. While there are parts of the county which are famously flat its terrain is actually very mixed although never "challenging" comprising gently rolling hills, mixed woodland, old hedges, fields full of brighly coloured rape, the mid green of barley or the darker green of sugar beet. The richest county in the middle ages as a result of the wool industry, it boasts many fine village churches and Norwich's Anglican cathedral is one of the finest medieval cathedrals in the country. As with churches so with stately homes. The wealth of the county led to the establishment of many fine estates, some of which remain in private hands, others now administered by the National Trust or English Heritage. The city of Norwich itself has many fine and ancient buildings, including a fantastically well preserved castle (with museum and art gallery) and the legend goes that it has a church for every week of the year and a pub for every day. It's a lively city with a considerable clubbing scene as well as a lot of live music, much of it free. Every year in May the city hosts an Arts Festival offering a huge range of artistic events from "performance" art and street theatre to rock, jazz, blues and classical music.
Being primarily an agricultural county Norfolk is developing a reputation for excellent food and the ever increasing competition between pubs, particularly in the rural areas, means that visitors have no shortage of fine eating establishments to try, often at very competitive prices.
It is the coast and the Broads that originally attracted the tourist trade. The coast has many fine beaches, ranging from shingle through to extensive sand dunes - often hosting common and grey seals - and famous for the quality of its edible crabs and mussels. Seaside attractions range from the amusement arcades of Great Yarmouth, the pier at Cromer to seal-trips around Blakeney point to birdwatching practically anywhere. The Broads need no introduction and continue to offer a variety of opportunities from messing around in boats, to fishing and nature watching.

Itteringham

North Norfolk is a hidden gem, and our part of it is particularly attractive, with gently rolling hills, fields, woodland and unspoilt coast, some of which is designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The woods around us are full of bluebells early in the year, and May is the rhododendron season with Sheringham Park particularly famous for its display. The River Bure, which flows through our grounds is a spring-fed chalk stream bordered with willow, ash and alder and supporting stands of natural watercress. Otters have become a more common sight over the last few years. There are many fine churches and stately homes within a short drive as well as some more unusual places to visit such as the Amazonia Zoo just outside Cromer. Our area is crossed by many public footpaths allowing you to penetrate deep into the countryside away from any roads. It is primarily an agricultural area so we are surrounded by fields. Our local village of Itteringham probably has less than 100 inhabitants yet supports a thriving community shop, on a site which has been operating as a local shop for about 350 years! Blickling Hall, ancestral home of the Boleyn family and one of the National Trust's flagship properties is a short drive (or a pleasant walk) away. The view of the Hall at night time, floodlit and fronted by its spectacular lawn and ancient yew hedges is most impressive - but perhaps my favourite view is of the back of the hall, viewed from across its expansive lake and framed by the many stately trees in its wonderful garden.

Excellent location for a quiet break in a lovely cottage overlooking the mill pond. Friendly, helpful hosts too. There are plenty of interesting places to visit within easy reach. Would quite happily recommend and love to to go back in the future.
