Location The village of Roughton, located on the A140 Norwich Road, is some 2.8 miles south of Cromer, 8.5 miles north of Aylsham and 20.5 from the cathedral city of Norwich. Within the village there is a primary school, public house, well known fish and chip shop and garage with shop.

Nearby Cromer is a vibrant, predominantly Victorian town perched on the very edge of the North Norfolk coast, famous for its wide open beaches, Cromer crabs, traditional pier complete with theatre providing seaside special variety shows. Rich in its fishing heritage, Cromer also has a lighthouse and a proud tradition of RNLI service. There is an excellent mix of small independent local shops, a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, pubs and holiday accommodation together with train and bus links to the broads and Norwich. There is also a hospital, doctors and dental surgery, library and the Royal Norfolk Golf Club.

Old Mill House Cottage is on the very outskirts of Roughton adjacent to the village of Felbrigg and close to Felbrigg Hall, boasting some excellent walks in the surrounding countryside.  

Description Driving past the immaculate and manicured gardens of this property, immediately informed me the presentation of this detached cottage was going to be first class and I was certainly not disappointed.

Believed to date from the late 18th century and created from former outbuildings to nearby Old Mill House, this delightful cottage gives little away from the roadside and really must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated. At the centre of the house is a superb kitchen/dining room centred around a Rayburn stove with a snug and garden room beyond. From the kitchen/dining room a staircase leads to the three cosy bedrooms and a really spacious contemporary fitted bathroom. Leading in the opposite direction from the kitchen/dining room, an open plan inner hall has stairs leading down to a spacious sitting room with heavily beamed ceiling and inglenook style fireplace, whilst a staircase up, takes you to a large guest bedroom. These two rooms along with a utility which could be utilised as a small kitchen and shower room beyond, provide potential use as self contained accommodation ideal for bed and breakfast or space for guests.

The already mentioned gardens are delightful with most attractive patio areas immediately surrounding the cottage and across the gravelled parking, providing space for several vehicles or potentially the erection of a garage, the main garden from which there are views over open countryside.
