Glaven Cottage is an exquisite Grade II listed flint cottage situated in an idyllic location on the banks of the River Glaven in Letheringsett.
Nestled in a highly discreet location within a prestigious gated development, Glaven Cottage is tucked away at the rear of The Maltings which dates back to the 17th century and once was the old Letheringsett Brewery Mill.
The unique and stylish three bedroom cottage dates back to 1870 and effortlessly fuses character with contemporary flair and is very much what you want it to be; a romantic love nest for two, a small family retreat or a little bolthole for a small group of friends looking for a quality property to enjoy a break away together.
A great base for enjoying easy access to both coastal and rural North Norfolk, it offers the opportunity to totally relax, kick back and take in the North Norfolk air.
Just a short drive from the North Norfolk coast with its plethora of sandy beaches and the bustling Georgian market town of Holt, this property pretty much ticks all the boxes.
With a wealth of period charm throughout; you’ll just love the beautiful oak floors and doors, ornate and highly decorative original windows, exposed beams, feature fireplaces and vaulted ceilings.
Undoubtedly the garden is a real feature of the cottage, with its paved sun terrace and lawn from where you can sit and enjoy picturesque riverside views and a picnic overlooking the babbling stream.
Glaven Cottage is just a two minute walk to a very good pub/restaurant, meaning you don’t need to cook if you don’t want to and you’ll also find some great cafes and eateries in nearby Holt.
We had a really lovely few days at Glaven Cottage. It's decorated to a high standard and was extremely comfortable and cosy - gorgeously warm in very cold weather and a very easy place to relax. Very comfortable beds and a great shower. The garden is also very lovely and private.
We were delighted to realise that we were a stone's throw from The King's Head, Letheringsett, where we had a very leisurely and delicious Sunday lunch, and found ourselves within really easy reach of Blakeney, Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham where we did some great walks.
