Burnham Thorpe • Sleeps 4 • Dogs welcome
Experience country living in this quaint bolthole that's ideal for couples or a family of four. Located in Burnham Thorpe, the birthplace of Admiral Lord Nelson, on a quiet Norfolk back lane you will find this much-loved, peaceful retreat that has been well cared for by the owner's family for over three decades. Following its recent refurbishment, we are delighted to offer our guests the opportunity to also enjoy it!
Idyllically placed just two miles from the highly regarded Holkham Estate and the coastline beyond, Dales Cottage mixes country living with comfort. Lovingly refurbished by the owners, this bolthole retreat is perfect for couples looking to get away from the stresses and fast pace of modern life, whilst taking in the fabulous North Norfolk coast and countryside that surrounds it.
In the summer the large garden to the rear of the property also comes into its own, complete with Discovery apple and other fruit bearing trees. Relax and enjoy the peace, quiet and space that you’re afforded, whilst ensuring that you’ve got plenty of food in the fridge for the BBQ!
During the colder months, you may decide to retreat inside after a long day of exploring with the dog, so head indoors, light the open fire and cuddle up in the lounge with some fizz, what could be better?
Guests do need to be aware of the height restrictions that exist at Dales Cottage, the entrance into the bathroom is restricted to around five feet so do mind your head! The stairs to the first floor are typical of this style of Norfolk cottage and guests with mobility concerns should be aware that they are winding in style.
The cottage offers two bedrooms; one king size bed and a twin-bedded room, both of which are on the first floor.
On the same landing as the bedrooms you will also find the shower room. No bath is offered at Dales Cottage.
Large garden with fruit trees and areas to sit and relax. You also have the use of a charcoal fuelled BBQ.
Whilst being dog friendly at Dales Cottage, the garden is not completely enclosed, therefore dogs should be accompanied. There is also shared access at the rear of the property for the neighbour to get to their back door. Please note that the driveway is shared with the other cottages and the one space is on a first come, first served basis. Further parking is allowed on the road at the front of the property and there are no restrictions.
Modern refurbishment in kitchen that now offers all of the required facilities; cooker with hob, and fridge/freezer. The lounge has a working open fire place that is larger than most.
