One of our more popular cottages, Railway Cuttings Cottage in the village of Briston will be available for Easter 2020. The cottage has a new owner who is refurbishing it so that it will be in pristine condition by Easter.

Inside Railway Cuttings Cottage

Railway Cutting Cottage hints at the quality within as soon as you approach the front door. Being of modern flint construction it is built and finished to a very high standard. The main door and entrance hall is in the centre of the property off which are several doors to other rooms and a pay telephone.

Off to the right of the hallway is a very fully fitted kitchen with all the amenities you could wish for. You will find an electric cooker and hob, dishwasher, microwave and toaster. There is also a small breakfast bar with tall stools for typically staggered breakfasting as the holiday house wakes up.

Off the kitchen is a utility room with fridge freezer, washing machine and on the far side of that, there is a downstairs lavatory.

Off another door from the kitchen is access to the bright and airy dining table that easily seats 8 people plus a high chair. The French window doors off the dining area give it a bright outlook onto the patio in the back garden.

Off the dining area is a large lounge with three comfortable sofas, a great place to unwind after seeing some of Norfolk's hidden gem treasures.

Back out from the lounge into the hallway, the stairs lead up to the bedrooms.

Railway Cuttings Cottage Outside and Garden

To the rear, there is an extensive lawned garden with mature shrubs in borders. A rear paved patio area with patio furniture and BBQ, which is not overlooked.

The garden has views of the open fields that the property backs on to, with better views from the upstairs windows.

There is a garden shed available for guests to use (maybe storage for bicycles?) and an assortment of garden games.

The garden has a slight undulation and has been thoughtfully laid out to tire out the little ones.

To the front, there is a shingle drive that will enable up to 3 cars to park.

Surrounding area

The property is sited on the South-Eastern edge of Briston village. Backing onto estate land, there are fields and woodland as far as the eye can see.

The local Briston village boasts butchers, bakers and two local shops including a Co-op. There is a fresh fish shop in the village and in the next village a home delivery Chinese food outlet.

The village has two pubs with excellent food being prepared in them. One in easy walking distance of the cottage.

The cottage is only a short drive from the historic market town of Holt, a regular haunt of the Royal family when in Sandringham. There are regular shops and cafes together with plenty of excellent antique shops to peruse and book shops to lose yourself in.

Nearby are Morston National Trust (bird reserve and seal viewing trips) Blakeney, Cley and Salthouse. A little further East along the coast gets you to Sheringham, Cromer and Wells Next the Sea to the East.

Norwich is a 40-minute drive away as is Kings Lynn. Sandringham, Blickling and Holkham estates are all a great day out too. More details of places to visit can be found on our website and you can use this handy map to plan your week.
