This house used to be a former public house in Wymondham. Just past the Feathers and facing Pople Street was the Leather Bottle, which like the Goat and the Cross Keys, was owned in the early 1800s by Westons, the Norwich brewers.
At that time, dangling over the doorway was a sign in the shape of a bottle, inscribed 'Weston's Nog'. Nog was a potent tipple particular to the Norwich area and took its name from 'noggin', a word for 'a small cup'.
It was said that only the most hardened drinker could walk through a doorway without touching the doorposts 'after downing a quart of it!' So, you can follow in the footsteps of many a hardy person! Inside this historic home is a vestibule, off which is a sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and a hearth made from Normandy stone, some of which is believed to have been taken from Wymondham Abbey.
There is a kitchen/diner and upstairs, a master bedroom, an en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and a shower room. Outside is a courtyard and space for parking for two cars.
