The three-bedroom cottage was built by the Holkham Estate in 1873 to house farm-workers’ families and, since it was last sold in 2014, it has been greatly improved. It is now on the market with Bedfords at a guide price of £325,000.

Not only does it offer charming accommodation, making it an ideal holiday home or bolt-hole, but it also benefits from a large garden, off-road parking and uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside.

The kitchen features a timber stable entrance door and a ceramic tiled floor and is well-fitted with a good range of base and wall units.

It also includes an integrated Bosch electric oven and hob with extractor over, plus an integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer.

The room is dual aspect, offering lovely views over both the front and rear gardens.

The sitting room, which sits next door, is a wonderfully light and airy space, with a south-facing window and characterful wooden floor made from reclaimed driftwood. Extra cosiness comes from its wood-burning stove.

There is also a cloakroom/utility room on the ground floor. Like the kitchen, this features a ceramic tiled floor and includes space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer.

Upstairs, the landing leads on to three good-sized bedrooms and plenty of loft space. Two of the bedrooms include plenty of storage, thanks to built-in wardrobes, and all three offer lovely views.
