Golebys Cottage is tucked away on a quiet lane in the pretty village of Hickling, within easy reach of the best Norfolk has to offer. Hickling boasts the biggest of Norfolks broads, where water sports can be tried at Norfolk Outdoor Adventure or boats can be hired for the day at Whispering Reeds. The beautiful Pleasureboat Inn pub sits beside Hickling Broad and there is also a nature reserve further along the water. The superb Greyhound pub is 2 minutes walk away from the cottage. The pubs are both dog friendly. Hickling has a pretty church and there are many lovely walks and cycle rides leading from it. The small town of Stalham is less than 10 minutes away, where the nearest supermarket can be found.
One of the benefits of staying at Golebys Cottage is it's location, as it is also less than 3 miles away from Norfolks stunning golden beaches, that stretch for miles and miles. Hickling is also a mere 5 miles away from the famous seal colony at Horsey Beach, which is a wonderful sight. Historic Norwich, the seaside towns of Cromer and Great Yarmouth, plus the Broads capital, Wroxham, are all within 35 minutes drive.
The cottage is a real home from home, combing old charm with modern living. Entry is via a stable door that leads to a small porchway. From here is a cosy, open plan living room, featuring a multi fuel burner, open beams, Smart Tv and a hi-fi system with DAB Radio. Welcome baskets of coal, wood and kindling are provided free of charge, as are books, games and DVD's for relaxing evenings in. The living room also has underfloor heating.
