Gunthorpe was mentioned in the Domesday Book and is a quiet village approached on small single track roads culminating on the village green, within a conservation area in the valley of the River Gun. The Grade II Listed Gunthorpe Hall was built by Sir John Soane in 1789, the architect who designed the Bank of England building in Threadneedle Street. Today the village has a fine parish church and active village hall.

The village sits quietly between the A148 and B1354 giving access to Norwich with train and international airport links and King’s Lynn train links to Cambridge and London.

There are plenty of amenities on offer in both the Georgian market town of Holt and Fakenham including schooling for all ages, medical centres, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants, garages and a cinema.

Holt is renowned for its attractive street frontages and for its wide and eclectic range of independent shops, as well as Bakers and Larners – an exceptional privately owned department store. Holt is also home to Gresham’s pre-prep, prep and senior schools, founded in 1555.

The town of Fakenham is transformed by its weekly market and auction with a farmer's market monthly and at least 12 race days a year held at Fakenham Racecourse - one of the finest national hunt racecourses in the country.


The front part glazed stable door leads into a delightful dining/reception hall with east aspect, warm coloured wood effect tiled flooring, study area and under stair storage cupboard.

A further part glazed door leads to a step down into the kitchen with handmade bespoke range of fitted and painted wooden base and wall units, hardwood Iroko worktops, Belfast sink, and integrated appliances including Liebher drawer fridge and Neff ½ size dishwasher, Cooker, extractor fan and hob. This room is beautifully presented with a Moroccan tiled floor with underfloor heating and benefits from a west facing window with lovely garden views.

Beyond the kitchen is a back hallway with underfloor heating with storage cupboard and door to the garden. The very stylish shower room has wood effect tiled flooring with underfloor heating and contemporary fittings including tiled walls, vanity unit, WC, curved Mira shower cubicle and graphite finished heated towel rail.

The sitting room has east aspect, contemporary carpeting, bespoke fitted book shelving and storage cupboards and a wood burner set within the fireplace.

This really is a beautiful cottage which would make a perfect full time home, holiday let or weekend retreat.


The generously sized garden sits on the west side of the property benefiting from south and west aspect and has been landscaped with raised oak sleeper beds filled with flowers and herbs, gravel is divided with sandstone paths and 2 areas of terracing give plenty of space for outside entertaining. There is an original lean too brick and flint garden shed with power, and an oil tank storage enclosure and the garden is enclosed by willow fencing and a brick and flint wall. The property benefits from permissive access through the gardens of the neighbour properties to the north allowing access for maintenance and service delivery.
