Bears Cottage is situated in the centre of a private 200 acre woodland - the only dwelling within the wood. Built in the 1850's, the house has just been fully restored. Guests can enjoy the surrounding woodland & over 10 miles of tracks within it during their stay. Bears Cottage's isolation gives it absolute peace and privacy, a chance to escape the busy world in which we live with the Norfolk Coastline only 8 miles away. Perfect for Couples, Families, Wildlife enthusiasts and Pets.

“Ma famille et moi avons passé un séjour très agréable dans ce chalet et nous l'avons trouvé bien équipé, confortable et un endroit idéal pour explorer North Norfolk en voiture. Le check-in, rester, et check-out étaient tous faciles sans aucun problème. Le chalet est bien équipé avec tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour un court séjour, et nous avons particulièrement apprécié la sélection de jeux de société et de DVD. Dans l'ensemble, nous avons passé un séjour très agréable et un bon séjour à Norfolk. Nous reviendrions tous ici si nous étions dans le coin.”
Stone Cottage, a delightful 200-year-old detached cottage, is reputedly the oldest house in the sought after village of Sharrington and was, at one time, the village post office. Full of character, the cottage has been renovated in recent years and, under the current ownership, has been transformed into a really lovely, welcoming and comfortable holiday property, with modern touches and quirky decorative bits and pieces. The age of the cottage means the beamed ceilings are on the lowish side, the stairs are quite steep (there is no handrail), and the width of the doorway to the twin bedded room is 'slimline'. There's a fabulously cosy open-plan living area, divided by a large double sided wood burning stove to keep you warm in the winter months. In the summer, there is a really lovely private, enclosed garden to enjoy. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the cottage will appeal to families and couples, who want to enjoy this beautiful part of rural North Norfolk. Just three miles from the ever popular Georgian market town of Holt, one mile from an award-winning farm shop and restaurant, and within easy driving distance of the beautiful coastal villages of Morston, Cley and Blakeney, there is something on offer for everyone.

A brick chimney breast divides the room and houses the double sided multi fuel burner (a starter pack of fuel will be provided in the winter months). The ceiling is beamed across the room, being just slightly lower in the sitting area. There is a farmhouse style wooden table with six painted chairs in the dining half, and two comfy sofas with throws and cushions in the sitting half of the room. There is a wide screen Apple television and Amazon Fire stick, DVD player and board games for cosy nights in. Double glazed windows overlook the pretty garden.

A further, narrow doorway, from within this room takes you into a twin bedded room with iron bedsteads, easy chair, chest of drawers and television.
