Full Description

Sea Lavender  is a beautiful refurbished self catering cottage set in the picturesque Georgian village of Burnham Market on the north Norfolk coast.  It is a classic Norfolk flint cottage dating from 1812 and one of the nicest holiday cottages in Burnham Market.

You enter the cottage into a large open plan living room, kitchen diner.

The living room contains a large leather sofa and two comfy leather chairs. There is a large television in the corner with DVD player and free sat providing all the Freeview channels and a few extras. There is a side board with walking and cycling guides (to borrow) and information about local activities. Unlimited wifi in this cottage.

There is a multi fuel stove which is easy to use and logs for the first night or two are provided. Further fuel supplies can be picked up from the garage down the road.

There is a supply of books, and DVD’s, and newer DVD’s titles can easily be rented from the local garage. There is a music centre which plays both CDs and Mini discs as well as having a radio. There are also children’s DVD’s and a selection of pre-school toys in the cupboard for the smaller visitors.

The kitchen is well stocked with all that you could require from casserole dishes to weighing scales. We like our cooking and have tried to provide all you might possibly need in the cottage.

Burnham Market and surrounding area food shops include

  • Butchers – with game from Holkham Hall
  • Wine Merchants – plenty of individually selected wine
  • Fish monger with local supplies and home made pates
  • Bakers with daily fresh bread cooked on premises
  • Delicatessen
  • Many local farm shops – . . . and plenty more

Kitchen appliances -

  • electric hob with fast halogen rings
  • microwave
  • fridge freezer
  • washing machine
  • oven
  • dishwasher

There is a large kitchen table which easily seats four, with chairs for six, and a high chair stored away out the back if you should need it.

There is a small range of plastic plates and cups for the smaller guests and a couple of sets of cutlery.

We have also supplied a picnic set including plates, cups and bowls and a cool bag with ice blocks to take your food out for the day with you.

The bathroom leads off the back of the cottage. It contains a high powered electric shower with a thermostat control over the bath, toilet and basin. There is also an additional toilet.

The staircase is enclosed with a Norfolk door at the bottom of it.

First Floor

The larger bedroom contains a kingsize bed, wardrobe, drawers and a 19 inch flat screen television with its own HD Free Sat box. The television has a built in DVD player.

The second bedroom contains two single beds, a wardrobe and a chest of drawers. Both bedrooms have blackout curtains although the light does come in around the egdes. There is enough room for a travel cot in either room (and we can supply one on request – supply your own bedding).

All linen is provided including towels. Please bring your own beach towels and towels for use outside the cottage.

We have tried to make the cottage as energy efficient as it possible. All lighting fixtures have energy saving bulbs, the loft is well insulated, and the windows are double glazed. The heating system is a modern French design that is little known in the UK (rather than poorly efficient storage heaters which are more common in areas with no gas). The rooms are thermostatically controlled and set for your comfort and warmth.

The Garden

The garden is directly behind the cottage. It has a large table and chairs and a bbq on the patio area. The rest is a small children’s play area with swing, slide and child trampoline. There is a shed which has room for 2 bikes.  A short distance down the road is a large playing field with a children’s playground.

The garden contains a children’s swing and slide.  There is an enclosed area containing this equipement.

Improved garden with shed including bike storage if you wish to bring bikes with you they should fit at least 2 adult ones (but again at your own risk).

Parking – there is parking on the road on the other side or directly in front of the cottage.  This is very close to the village centre and avoids the problems of the parking around the greens.
