This two-bedroomed home dates from the late eighteenth century. It has been completely refurbished, while retaining many original features, to match charm with comfort.
The Cottage nestles between the former stables of the old Castle Inn and the Great Yard cottages, in the village of Saxthorpe within the parish of Corpusty. It makes a great base for you to explore the beautiful North Norfolk coast, whether it be visiting fine stately homes, getting in touch with nature by visiting the many wildlife reserves or by enjoying leisurely walks or cycle rides in the quiet rolling countryside.
