The Old Forge
Nr Wells-next-the-Sea, North Norfolk
Recently converted, this character holiday property has been transformed by the owner into a truly stunning, stylish, fabulous holiday retreat close to Wells on the North Norfolk coast.
As the name would imply, this Grade II listed detached cottage was once the village forge. Creatively furnished with an eclectic mix of old and new, the emphasis has been placed on style, comfort, peace and relaxation.
Equally splendid is the wonderful, mature pretty south and west facing garden which stretches all around the rear of the cottage, and has the charm of a secret garden with ‘hidden’ areas to explore.
The original blacksmith’s fireplace still stands, now with a modern log burner installed, and is the focal feature in the large dining kitchen. A recent extension houses a lovely cosy sitting room with an open fire and french doors overlooking the garden.
An inner hallway serves as a cloaks/boot room and has access into the rear garden. There’s a small study too, with a comfy chair and reading lamp.
All on one level, with two king size bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is en suite with a large freestanding bathtub, this lovely holiday property will particularly appeal to couples and friends, but is just as suitable for a small family.
The Old Forge is a perfect base from which to explore all the delights of this beautiful part of North Norfolk either on foot, by bike or by car.

Binham is an historical village a few miles inland from Wells-next-the-Sea. Binham is a really beautiful example of a traditional Norfolk village with the added attraction of the Priory.
The 12th century Priory has wonderful outdoor concerts in the summer. There is an excellent pub called The Chequers, that brews its own beer, a village shop and a very good butcher.
Walking in the area is excellent and very peaceful, you can really escape the madding crowds without being too far away from the interesting local towns of Wells or Blakeney.
