Location Bessingham is an attractive small village approximately five miles from Sheringham with all its many amenities and about seven miles from the popular Georgian town of Holt, with its upmarket shops, restaurants and hotels. The pretty village of Aldborough is only five minutes drive away providing day to day local shopping and a post office. The beautiful North Norfolk coast is only ten minutes drive away providing you with many woodland and coastal walks, while the bustling city centre of Norwich with its rail connections to London and other major cities is about a forty minutes drive away. Bessingham is also on the right side of the city for Norwich International Airport and - in terms of location - provides all you would want from a rural idyll.  

Description This delightful brick and flint cottage occupies a generous plot and is situated in the heart of the North Norfolk countryside with beautiful views over fields and woodland from the upper windows. The property was formerly two cottages built for the villagers who worked at the Manor. When one of the cottages fell into disrepair, it was purchased and the two cottages were combined and lovingly refurbished, retaining much of their original character to create a spacious and comfortable detached home. The cottage was later extended and also benefits from a UPVC double glazed conservatory. There are many period features throughout including the original Inglenook fireplaces, exposed flint walls, exposed beams and the use of legged and braced doors all adds to the character of the building. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, with shower room and utility off, a kitchen/breakfast room which leads into the conservatory, a further door off the kitchen leads into the Snug with a beautiful inglenook fireplace which houses a multi-fuel burner and opens up into the dining room. The Morning Room, so named by the previous owners of the property is a generous triple aspect lounge occupying the whole of the ground floor of one of the cottages with an open fire and French doors into the conservatory. On the first floor are two double bedrooms with exposed beams and lovely views over fields, a further single bedroom, occasional bedroom and bathroom. The property is heated using solid fuel and night storage heaters. The grounds extend to approximately 0.4 acres and offer off street parking and a detached double garage. An internal viewing is recommended to fully appreciate the unique charm and character of the property.
