Heron Cottage in Itteringham
If you’re looking for a cottage that feels like it’s home from home, then this is probably it! Situated on a quiet back lane, you can abandon the car and enjoy walks and cycling routes from the door.
Entering through a utility/ boot room into the kitchen/diner, a glazed door and step leads into the sitting room with a large feature fireplace, wood burner and a further glazed rear door onto a paved terrace, overlooking your secluded lawned garden.
The spacious master bedroom is on a mezzanine, with 5’ king size bed and original, vaulted pine beams and floorboards.
A bathroom (rain-head shower over bath) and a further bedroom with a 4’ double bed (sloping ceiling towards the window slightly reducing the head-height) are both accessed from the master bedroom.
Washing machine – dishwasher – fridge - small freezer – cooker & microwave – tv & dvd player – cd/radio - wood burner – bed linen and towels provided.
Please be aware that the doorway from kitchen to sitting room is lower than average.
Oil central heating, electricity and WIFI are included.
Sleeps 3 - 5' double and one 4' single
The secluded, paved terrace with garden furniture is a great sun trap in the afternoons and evenings taking in the sunset. The garden opens onto a lawn partly shaded by apple trees..
Private parking within the garden for 1 - 2 cars – bike & equipment store.
This deceptively spacious cosy cottage sits midway between the hamlet of Itteringham Common and the Great Wood of National Trust Blickling, overlooking water meadows close to the River Bure.
There are superb walks from the door in all directions - through conservation meadows or across parkland to the National Trust's flagship Blickling Hall, café and timeless pub. Explore the grass parks, woodland and lakeside trails or wander along to the the well stocked Itteringham village shop, delicatessen and tiny café.
Set in a strictly protected conservation valley, Itteringham is idyllic; wonderfully unspoiled and home to an abundant of wildlife along the river Bure - the majestic flight of barn owls is now a common sight for us across the adjacent meadows even during the daytime.
This is fabulous countryside for both walking and cycling and a lockable garage is provided if you’d like to bring your bikes – Itteringham village is on Route 33, a 10 mile 'quiet-lanes' cycle trail.
If you’re planning a visit further afield, within half an hour’s drive you could be in the cultural city of Norwich or on a north Norfolk cliff top golf course.
If you enjoy beaches you are a within a short drive to a great choice of beaches, and renowned bird reserves (located west from Cley to Titchwell) looking out across the dynamic salt marshes and creeks along our beautiful Norfolk coastline, famous for ‘big blue skies’ yet dark enough at night to see the stars!
Take a boat trip out from Morston or Blakeney Quay to see the seal colonies on Blakeney Point .
Visit the nearby market towns of Aylsham and Holt where you will find art galleries and individual shops, along with a variety of café’s.
The Victorian seaside town of Cromer is home to freshly caught crabs landed on the beach daily by fishing boats below the pier.
We still have traditional weekly markets, auctions and artisan produce stalls in the Georgian market square at Aylsham, just 2 miles away.
