Cosy cottage in historic Norfolk village

This is our home, we have over 30 years, renovated it from a farm worker`s home, it is about 200 years old. It is the end cottage of a terrace in the middle of the village. We have retained many of the old features, a range fireplace and bread oven, pamment floors and a wrap around cottage garden.

There is a modern large open kitchen and dining room with french windows, and a cosy living room with large corner sofa and staircase. Upstairs are two double rooms and an office room with sofabed. A bathroom upstairs has a roll top bath, downstairs is a modern shower and wc room. A garden room is our latest renovation, a quiet place to sit and relax.
