Stylishly refurbished to a high standard, our delightful flint pebble cottage is set in quiet Sculthorpe. Just 15 mins drive to explore the North Norfolk beaches of Holkham and Wells-Next-The-Sea. Sandringham & Walsingham are also nearby. Fakenham is a mile away for groceries (or delivered!). Whether enjoying the newly refurbished private heated pool (available 28th May-26th Sept only) or the cosy log burner in winter, The Hideaway is the deal place to relax and unwind.

The space
Recently renovated and freshly redecorated for the 2021 season, the cottage has a cosy yet stylish feel, with a new shaker kitchen with hand painted door handles and stylish new shower room with double size walk in shower. The 10 metre heated pool was fully refurbished for summer 2021 and is available from the end of May bank holiday weekend to the last weekend of September (turned off 26th September 2021 and as it takes 2 weeks to prepare, it unfortunately cannot be made available outside of these dates due to the cooler weather). It is safely covered over winter. A log burner (logs always included) is available all year round. We welcome up to two well behaved dogs (downstairs only) and have dog blankets, leads and dog bowl ready to use.

The kitchen has fridge (with freezer compartment), dishwasher, microwave and Tassimo coffee machine. The induction hob and fan oven offer quick cooking facilities, with plenty of saucepans and baking trays. A very well equipped kitchen with everything you will need to prepare a home cooked meal (if you’re too tired to walk to the bistro opposite). Tea towels and oven gloves provided. Iron, ironing board, clothes airer, picnic rugs, thermos and cool bag with freezer blocks all available to use.

The stylish downstairs shower room has a very large walk in shower, toilet and basin. All bath towels/hand towels provided.

The lounge has 2 sofas and an easy chair to comfortably seat 6 guests. Cosy nights around the log burner, with TV, DVD player with a selection of DVDs. This leads into the dining room with a large table seating 6-8 people easily. A high chair is available. A bookcase with books, board games and birdwatching kit is there for your entertainment.

There is plenty of space for coats and shoes in the hallway and the Norfolk winder staircase wind up to the first floor bedrooms (they’re almost a spiral so bear this in mind for very young children or infirm). A baby/dog gate is available for use at the bottom of the stairs.

King size bedroom has 2 bedside drawers, dressing table with mirror, hairdryer, large chest of drawers and open style wardrobe. Bedding provided.

Double bedroom has bedside drawers and large chest of drawers. Dressing table and stool. Door hooks provide hanging space. Bedding provided.

Bunk beds bedroom has a large chest of drawers and wall mounted hanging space. Bedding provided. Baby gate under the bed fits the bunk bed room or king size bedroom doors.

Access via locked gate to field behind the cottage. Washing line. Gas BBQ with tools is available in the rear terrace. Please be aware for non-swimming children that the pool is not separately fenced within the garden.
