  The Detail...

Situated in a picture perfect coastal village, Hope Cottage is a pretty brick, flint and weatherboard cottage dating back as far as 1680. Reputed to be the oldest property on the historic Pedlar's Way Trail, this fabulous dwelling is the perfect base from which to explore this scenic corner of the country.

A beautiful bolthole for two, Hope Cottage overlooks the marshes of National Wildlife Trusts Redmarsh Nature Reserve, and is set in a peaceful off-road location. For lovebirds and birdwatchers alike, this holiday hideaway has been sensitively restored, and even won a Mayor's Special Award in 2005.

When you arrive, you will instantly see just how private and peaceful the rural location is. Tucked away from the world, yet just a short walk from the beach and the village pub, the very best of both worlds awaits you here at Hope Cottage. Head on inside and you will see a wonderful mixture of old and new. Beamed ceilings and exposed floor boards add touches of old world charm to a cottage that also offers every modern convenience.

The sitting room is just right for cosy evenings spent in front of the log burner, stretched out on the sumptuous leather sofa. Cuddle up and catch a film on the wall-mounted flatscreen TV with Blu-ray and DVD or listen to some tunes on the iPod docking station. If you fancy a change of scenery, why not take a seat in the garden room with its wicker sofa, armchairs, log burner and bi-fold doors leading directly out onto the garden?

The kitchen is pretty and perfectly formed, with an impressive vaulted ceiling with painted beams and French doors to the outside terrace. You will find everything you need here, including an electric oven, halogen hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. There is also a Tassimo coffee machine, wall-mounted flatscreen TV and a dining table with seating for two, perfect for lazy lunch or home made dinner.

The ground floor is also home to the main bathroom which is a wet room with a walk-in drench shower, wash basin, WC, heated towel rail and underfloor heating. Soft towels, luxury toiletries and luxurious fittings are all here for you as you wash away the beach for the day.

The master bedroom is accessed via a traditional Norfolk winder staircase. With distant sea views from the vaulted windows, this room is a peaceful haven with a beautifully dressed double bed, high quality bedroom furniture, hanging space and its own TV for a spot of late night lounging.

The south-west facing garden provides views across the marshes towards the sea and features a small pond. Enjoy afternoons out in the open, or cuddle up in the garden room if the weather starts to turn.

The cottage offers direct access to the famous Peddars Way Trail and the various delights to be found on North Norfolks' Coastal paths. Perfect for getting back to nature and enjoying a wide variety of wildlife, Hope Cottage is just a short distance away from the Holme Nature Reserve where you can see dragonflies, barn owls, kestrels, marsh harriers, and even grazing pink-footed geese,

Bring your bikes and explore the quiet local lanes, or head over to the famous Links Golf Course at Old Hunstanton where you have fantastic views of the coast as you play.
