The beautiful country-style kitchen/diner with its exposed beams and traditional stone pammented floor is an ideal place to enjoy a hearty breakfast or a leisurely evening meal.
It’s fully equipped with a modern oven, hob and kitchen appliances; you won’t want to eat out.
The warm, cosy living room is comfortably furnished in a rustic style with an impressive inglenook fireplace and log burner – an ideal spot to curl up and relax on a chilly night.
A digital television and DVD player are supplied for your entertainment.
From here, elegant French doors open out onto the beautiful gardens with stunning views over Norfolk meadows.
Balmy summer evenings can be spent enjoying the sunshine, taking advantage of the barbecue and garden furniture supplied.
Upstairs are two generous cottage bedrooms, both tastefully decorated with wood furniture and polished floorboards.
The master bedroom features a large, Victorian-style iron bedstead and the second bedroom has two good-sized twins or they can be joined to make a king-size bed.
The family sized bathroom has a bath with a separate shower. Another toilet and wash-basin can be found downstairs.
Together with Swallow Cottage 2, these attractive, rural cottages are also suitable for larger groups who would like to holiday together.
Friday changeover – out of main season, flexible start and finish days are possible.
Wickmere, north Norfolk
Wickmere is more like a hamlet than a village. It’s quiet and picturesque with many of its cottages built to provide accommodation for workers on the Wolterton Estate.
This was once the family seat of the Walpoles – specifically Horatio Walpole, younger brother of the famous British Prime Minister, Robert Walpole.
Wickmere is in the heart of ‘Poppyland’ country and it’s 9 miles from the famous Victorian seaside town, Cromer.
From here the whole of north Norfolk is accessible including Sheringham and Blakeney.
Mannington Hall and Gardens is also just down the road.
