Greengage is a beautifully restored period cottage in the rural village of Gunthorpe, a fifteen minute drive from the North Norfolk coast. The owners have put a lot of thought into the restoration and the result is a charming, cosy cottage with the special addition of a vintage ‘secret’ potting shed for romantic suppers in front of the roaring fire. The accommodation is stylish with linens, towels and hand soaps. There will also be a welcome pack awaiting your arrival.
Many of the original features such as old latch doors and cupboards are retained. The gardens are a real feature of the house, planted in a traditional cottage style, and the original potting shed has been transformed into a very special dining area. (Please note there is a right of way to the adjoining cottage over the rear courtyard.) The cottage is next door to Quince Cottage, and both cottages could be booked together and the wonderful Potting Shed used as a communal dining room or for a special anniversary/supper.
The North Norfolk coast is about a 15 minute drive and the Georgian market town of Holt a 10 minute drive. A perfect base for a romantic escape.
Additional Information
Norfolk Winder stairs are, as with older character cottages enclosed, steep, curved and narrow. Here they are wooden with a metal hand rail on one side only.
Two well behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge).
WiFi is available but please note that this is a rural area, therefore speeds may be slower than you are used to and the signal can be intermittent. There is no mobile reception but a landline is provided for reasonable use by guests.
