Family Friendly Norfolk Cottage.

Charming countryside style

Wishing Well, is a beautiful two bedroom cottage lovingly renovated in a charming countryside style, perfect for a small family or couple. This Norfolk cottage is complete with a spacious and well cared for garden overlooking fields and even boasts a traditional Wishing Well!

Nestled in amongst the brick and flint cottages of Thursford, the semi-detached Wishing Well is peacefully set back from the road behind a metal gate with gravel driveway that includes space for two cars. Electric cars are not to be charged at the cottage.

Stunning views

Entering through the front door you are welcomed into the large hallway that leads off to the living area, a cosy space with a traditional wood burner, comfy sofas, perfect for relaxing in the evenings. Following through the hallway you enter the character-filled south facing dining area, with an exposed brick fireplace, restored wooden doors and pamment tiled flooring and log burner.

Cleverly stowed away there is a pantry with fridge/freezer and shelving, ensuring that the rustic charm of the cottage is not diminished by the sight of modern kitchen appliances. This is also apparent in the hand-built kitchen, beautifully finished in Duck Egg blue, with large skylights and windowed back door leading to the patio.

The stylish slate tiles provide underfloor heating for when the weather gets cooler, and radiators elsewhere in the house . Leading out of the kitchen door you are greeted by the sheltered south and west facing patio space overlooking views of the fields beyond the cottage.

This makes for the perfect outdoor dining area during the summer as it is a real sun-trap, and the adjacent outhouse provides a discreet heated laundry room, fitted with washing machine and airer and even more storage space.

A warmly rustic atmosphere

Returning to the main house, the carpeted stairway leads to the first floor and the master bedroom, situated towards the front of the cottage.

The countryside view can be enjoyed from the king sized bed with luxury cotton linen and set of built-in double wooden-shuttered wardrobes provide a great amount of space, combined with the pretty Victorian fireplace for a warmly rustic atmosphere. Across the landing is the second bedroom with views overlooking the garden and fields beyond and is fitted with two single beds.

Next door is the bathroom, with WC, basin and shower over bath.
