About this property
Perfect for summer holidays or winter escapes, for reunions and family gatherings, this handsome house nestles in peaceful countryside just 1½ miles from Sea Palling’s glorious sandy beach. Boasting a spacious and well appointed interior (a tree and decorations are provided for Christmas bookings) and its own large garden running alongside a dyke, Lound Cottage stands within the grounds of the owners’ home in the pretty Broadland village of Hickling – an ideal location from which to explore the many delights of this beautiful area. Close by, tranquil Hickling Broad, with its nature reserve, links to the Norfolk Broad’s unique topography of reed lined waterways, famous for their good coarse fishing, boating and rich variety of wildlife, especially waterfowl. Boat hire is available at nearby Stalham and pleasure boat trips are offered at the bustling village of Wroxham. The quiet country lanes are lovely for relaxed cycling and walking, and nearby attractions include BeWILDerwood (a treetop adventure park for children), steam train rides and family fun at Great Yarmouth. Picturesque north coast fishing villages, Cromer’s end of pier show, and the wonderful city of Norwich, with its cathedral, castle, museums, galleries, restaurants, cinema, theatre and fine shopping, are all within an easy drive. For another great day out, visit Horsey Beach (National Trust) where you can walk the dunes and see the seals and pups on the beach. Also worth a visit are Horsey Windpump, Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall (all National Trust). Beach 2½ miles. Shop and pub serving food 1.5 miles.
