The property

Horseshoe Cottage is a lovely, detached cottage nestled in a rural position in the village of Pentney, near Upper Marham, Norfolk. Benefitting from lake views with a spacious lawned garden, Horseshoe Cottage ticks the boxes for a wonderful family base in the Norfolk countryside. Step inside this traditional cottage and take a moment to appreciate the well-equipped kitchen, where you can cook up a storm on the electric oven and hob or heat up a quick meal in the microwave. Leading through into the living/dining room, settle onto the sofa in front of the TV and relax with a glass of wine beside the woodburning stove. There is also another sitting room where you can snuggle up in front of the open fire and enjoy a movie night with the family. The back garden area is fully enclosed, so children and pets can explore the grounds in safety. On warm days, fire up the brick-built BBQ and savour a tasty lunch on the patio area with outdoor seating, plus there is a tree swing and the huge lake is ideal for watersports and jet skiing. The North Norfolk coast is also less than 20 miles away. When it’s time to rest, drift upstairs to the three bedrooms, including two doubles and a twin, served by a bathroom. The views from this upper level are fantastic - you can see for acres across field and tree lined areas. The location of the cottage is a quiet country village; Pentney offers local amenities and its own history of Pentney Abbey, the castle ruins and its original walls around the village and Pentney Lakes is a great place for water skiers and fishermen too. Experience a little piece of history in the bustling market town of King's Lynn, home to the majestic St Margaret's Church and the famous Castle Rising castle. The cottage is not far from many historic national trust houses such as Oxborough Hall, St George’s Guildhall in King’s Lynn, market towns such as Wisbech, where there is the amazing historic Peckover House and Gardens and the city of Peterborough. In addition to the fabulous back garden setting, the property is surrounded by nature reserves and wildlife centres, the Welney Wash Wetlands is only a short drive away and is another haven for bird spotting too. Horseshoe Cottage is the perfect place for cyclists, walkers, nature lovers alike, ideal for making memories and exploring all that Norfolk has to offer.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
