St George's will surely delight discerning friends and families seeking a luxury self-catering cottage, close to the centre of Burnham Market. Behind the modern chalk exterior, this spacious property has a romantic French country style, with antique furnishings and soft nautical and floral fabrics set against a calming colour palette of chalky greys, blues and pinks. Within easy walking distance of all the cafe's, foodie shops, deli and lifestyle shops dotted around the village green and only a short drive to the sandy beaches at Brancaster, Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham, this is a great place relax and unwind. With parking for up to three cars behind high gates within the grounds, chill out in the beautifully sunny and enclosed walled garden throughout the year; or snuggle up in front of the fire during the winter.
Fresh and spacious, with chic French style furnishings and all the mod cons, this light and spacious village property is the perfect base for a stylish Norfolk holiday with all the family or weekend away with friends.
This lovey abode is located in the trendy village of Burnham Market and is ideal for enjoying the vibrancy of village life; the sun, sea, sand and rock pools at the local beaches of Brancaster, Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham and Old Hunstanton; and the fantastic bird and wildlife which can be seen in close proximity at the RSPB reserves in Titchwell and Snettisham.
Finished to a very high standard, the house opens up onto a large entrance hall where you can sit and read, or plan your day, before pulling on your boots or flip flops and heading out! Off the spacious hallway you’ll discover a beautiful kitchen/diner/family room with all the mod cons and a large dining table which seats 12, perfect for enjoying fabulous family suppers. The separate seating area is a great place to have pre-dinner drinks and there are doors leading out onto the lovely enclosed garden which catches the sun all day. A further sitting room with impressive vaulted ceiling and painted white beams is light and bright and offers an alternative place to relax. Chill-out in front of the TV/DVD player with Sky/Sky Sports or play games to while away precious down time spent with friends and family. On a winter’s evening, snuggle down, light the wood burner and enjoy good conversation.
The light and airy feel of this property offers a calm haven to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Downstairs there is a further twin bedroom which is serviced by a brand new cloakroom with separate shower.
All bedrooms are beautifully furnished in blues and muted hues to offer a restful night’s sleep.
Head out of the front gates and take a leisurely stroll around the corner into the centre of Burnham Market where you can browse the numerous boutique and foodie shops.
If you fancy a more relaxed day at St George’s, catch the sun’s rays on the terrace or prepare a meal outside on the BBQ and enjoy dining al fresco. With so much local produce to browse and buyjust a short walk away, including fresh bread, fish, meat and vegetables in the quaint village shops, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to cook! Don’t forget to try local crab, lobster, sea bass, samphire and mussels.
The house is blessed with having house martins that frequently return year on year to breed in their nests just below the eves of the roof. It’s a joy to watch them twist and turn in the sky above the garden on a sunny afternoon.
You’ll be spoilt for choice on where to go and will wonder how to cram everything in! A day on one of the splendid sandy beaches maybe? Why not hire a beach hut through Barefoot; spend a day horse riding at one of the local riding schools; a morning ‘gillying’ (crabbing) off the quay at Wells-next-the-Sea which costs nothing but is a whole lot of fun; enjoy morning pancakes on the Albatross moored in the harbour at Wells; or head a little further afield to Morston to take a boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point. Want to try your hand at sailing or would like to charter a local boat to take you to the stunning Scolt Head Island? then let us know and we’ll do the rest! Don’t miss a visit to the Wells-to-Walsingham railway which offers a wonderfully nostalgic experience and is the longest 10 1/4 ” narrow gauge steam railway in the world. A great adventure for the whole family, while you delight in the beautiful countryside of the North Norfolk coast and best of all your four legged friend can go too!
