Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached brick & flint period cottage with a separate barn providing further accommodation in grounds of 1.4 acres (S.T.S.) overlooking rolling countryside in a little-known hamlet just 2.5 miles from Blakeney and convenient for Greshams school.

A range of attractive brick & flint buildings dating from around 1800 situated on the edge of the peaceful village of Saxlingham, just 2.5 miles from the North Norfolk coast at Blakeney.

The original buildings provided the blacksmiths’ home, a forge and a separate barn; a link has been constructed latterly between the home and the forge and these buildings now provide the principal accommodation. The barn was converted in 1989 and is now called Forge Cottage, providing ancillary accommodation which has most recently been used as an artists’ studio. This building would now benefit from improvement.

The grounds extend to 1.4 acres (S.T.S) and enjoy open views over pasture and grazing to the north.


A wide entrance hall and study area provides the link between the original forge and the blacksmiths’ cottage; to the right is the forge which is arranged with a well-proportioned reception room with open fireplace and a bedroom and en suite bathroom, ideal for guests.

Steps from the hall open to the dining room which has a wood-burner set into an inglenook and exposed timbers. There is a wide arched opening to the study and a door into the snug, also with exposed timbers, a wood-burning stove and attractive stripped floorboards. The kitchen is fitted with timber cabinets, hardwood work-surfaces and has a range cooker beneath an extractor, a dishwasher and space for a fridge-freezer. The laundry room contains the oil-fired central heating boiler, with spaces for further appliances and a separate cloakroom and W.C.

The stairs rise from the dining room to a landing which accesses three further bedrooms and a shower room.


The entrance door opens to a large partially vaulted room with Velux rooflights as well as a casement. Beyond is a lobby, shower room and bedroom. A ship’s ladder leads to a mezzanine storage area.

The grounds are largely laid to grass with fruit trees and specimen trees including oak, beech and birch.

An in and out driveway provides ample parking and there is a substantial detached GARAGE AND WORKSHOP (29’8” deep x 17’6” wide). Beyond is an old timber stable and store in need of repair and an area of wild garden through which paths have been mown.

There is also a secret garden to the front of the cottage.
