The Waiting Rooms Cottage
1 bedroom, sleeps 2
This is the perfect retreat for a couple wishing to explore Norfolk on foot, by bike, or by hiring a boat on the Norfolk Broads.
Aptly named The Waiting Rooms, this lovely property with a large enclosed garden, is located directly alongside the former London and North Eastern Railway. Once the waiting rooms of the station, this holiday home is adjoining the Station House, the owner’s private residence, which also encompasses a small caravan site (5 pitches). There is direct access onto the old track-bed which now forms part of the Marriott’s Way, a 26 mile footpath, bridleway and cycle route that follows the disused railway line between Norwich and Aylsham, linking up to further footpaths and trails. Whether you are a casual walker, rambler, dog walker or cyclist, you will delight at the rich habitat and wildlife on the many footpaths and cycle routes in the area.
For those less mobile, there are suitable surfaces along much of its length.
The village of Cawston is just a few minutes’ walk and offers a deli/café, shop and pub. Nearby attractions include National Trust properties, Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall, and the unique Thursford collection with its stunning Christmas show. This is an ideal location for exploring the Norfolk Broads and North Norfolk Coast. The North Norfolk beaches are 16 miles and include the traditional seaside resort of Cromer, with its glorious sandy beaches, delicious crabs and all year, end of pier shows. Wroxham is 14 miles, and is known as the capital of the Norfolk Broads with daily boat hire and river trips to explore the expanse of waterways, riverside restaurants, cafés and shops.
The historic market town of Aylsham is 5 miles, for shops, cafés, market square, banks and supermarket.
Experience a nostalgic trip by steam on Norfolk’s longest narrow gauge railway, which runs between Aylsham and Wroxham. The 18 mile round trip runs through pretty countryside, where you can jump on/off at the pretty villages of Brampton, Buxton and Coltishall and explore by foot. Norwich is 10 miles away, a medieval city with cathedral, castle, museum, excellent shopping including two indoor malls, market square, theatre, cinemas, cafés and plenty of restaurants.
