The perfect Norfolk hideaway

If you’re searching for a delightful North Norfolk retreat, this charming one-bedroom character cottage in the sought-after village of Lessingham could be the perfect property for you.

Dating back to 1790 and with views from the rear garden towards Happisburgh Lighthouse and the North Norfolk Coast beyond, Hunters Halt offers a wonderful escape from the stresses of everyday life and is, in our opinion, the perfect Norfolk hideaway.

Nestling comfortably in a row of individual period properties at the centre of this picturesque North Norfolk village, Hunters Halt is set back from the roadway behind a low brick wall topped with traditionally styled metal railings and a matching garden gate, with parking for one vehicle directly in front of the property.

The compact front garden is low-maintenance, shingled with lightly-planted borders, and a pathway leading to the timber entrance door which in turn gives direct access into the living room at the front of the property. This is a warm and welcoming space, with sunlight streaming through the large double-glazed window, an inglenook fireplace with a woodburner, and a timber door concealing the traditional staircase which leads up to the first floor bedroom, with its vaulted ceilings, exposed roof trusses, and low-level windows which are typical of a character cottage of this style.

This is a home filled with history, and whilst the living room, bedroom and a ground floor bathroom comprise the original 18th Century accommodation, a comparatively recent extension to the rear of the property houses the comfortably-equipped kitchen, and leads to the private and sheltered rear garden, which has been landscaped to provide a cosy patio directly to the rear of the property, and a generous lawned area with well-stocked beds and mature trees and shrubs.

At the very end of the garden, a low fence gives views across farmland towards the North Norfolk coast, with the distinctive red and white stripes of Happisburgh Lighthouse on the horizon.

For walkers, Lessingham is only one mile from the wide skies and sandy beaches of the Norfolk coast, with Sea Palling approximately three miles by car. The village is home to a traditional pub and village hall, with the highly-regarded Ingham Swan restaurant just one and a half miles away in the neighbouring village of Ingham.

A ten-minute drive will bring you to the market town of Stalham, with access to the Norfolk Broads and a range of independent local stores and a supermarket. The Norfolk Broads capital of Wroxham is approximately twelve miles from the property, with the City of Norwich only five miles further south.

And while all of these amenities are in close proximity, what will attract most buyers to Hunters Halt is the opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of a busy lifestyle, and to enjoy the relaxation which this blend of country and coastal living has to offer.

This property is sure to prove popular, and early viewing is highly recommended.
