If you’re searching for a three bedroom character cottage in a Norfolk Broads village with easy access to amenities, this could be exactly the property you’re looking for.

This delightful home offers privacy and charm in the heart of Coltishall – the gateway to the Broads.

Tucked away behind a brick-and-flint wall in a courtyard of character properties, this charming three-bedroom detached cottage is a hidden gem in the heart of the thriving Norfolk Broads village of Coltishall.

The moment you enter the neatly-tended front garden, with its sheltered patio area perfect for al fresco entertainment, you begin to feel a sense of what attracted the current owners to this home – a feeling of being part of the community, whilst being slightly apart from the community – thanks to this cottage’s superb location. Step inside the cottage, through that vibrant mint green front door, and you immediately feel something else – you feel at home.

In part, this is due to the owners’ great eye for design and colour, evident in the way they have refurbished much of the property since taking ownership in 2016. It’s also due to the layout, which offers well-proportioned living space over two floors, with high ceilings and large windows giving a superb feeling of light and space throughout the property.

On the ground floor, the kitchen is a mix of contemporary and classic styling, accommodating a dining table for cosy meals with family or friends, whilst a separate utility room provides a home for laundry appliances and leads to a ground floor shower room at the rear of the property.

The living room is a generous space, with defined areas for reading, playing music or watching TV, and in the winter months the wood burner in the exposed brick fireplace assures you of a warm welcome home.  Off the living room, a separate study (or playroom) provides a private space for concentration and allows you to close the door on your efforts at the end of the working day.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, and a family bathroom with Jack-and-Jill doors to the first floor landing and Bedroom One.

This cottage occupies a sloping plot, and the rear gardens have been terraced as they rise upwards from the property. The garden would benefit from further landscaping to fully realise its potential, and we think the opportunity to watch the sun setting over the rooftops of Coltishall is not to be missed!



This individual property is within easy walking distance of the amenities of Coltishall, and benefits from a superb location within the village, and is about a 15-minute walk from the iconic Coltishall Lower Common, a popular riverside recreational area in the summertime, which boasts moorings and two well-regarded public houses.

The wider amenities of the village include another popular pub, art gallery, two churches, hotel and spa, butchers, greengrocer, cafés, takeaways, convenience stores and fuel station – and these are all within easy reach, as is the OFSTED Excellent primary school, medical centre, pharmacy, and village hall with recreation grounds. 

Situated alongside the River Bure at the gateway to the Norfolk Broads National Park, and just 30 minutes from the wide skies and open beaches of the Norfolk Coast, Coltishall is seven miles from the centre of cosmopolitan Norwich, with its international airport and direct rail service to London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes.

Early viewing is recommended to fully appreciate this delightful property, and is exclusively available through Pendefords – the individual property specialists.
