A charming three-bedroom cottage in the village of Saxthorpe, between Holt and Aylsham, is for sale with no onward chain at a £425,000 guide.

Honeysuckle Cottage was originally built as two properties in the 18th century and has since been converted to create one larger cottage, offering holiday let potential.

The mid-terrace property has a brick-and-flint exterior and retains many of its character features, such as exposed beams, open fireplaces and an original bread oven in the study.
