The Shepherds is a charming two bedroom, Grade II listed, 17th-century, typical North Norfolk flint cottage that is literally brimming with character. Situated in the picturesque and peaceful village of Great Walsingham, close to the famous National Shrine of our Lady in Walsingham, it provides the perfect year-round base from which to explore all that the region has to offer. This includes the popular resort of Wells-next-the-Sea with its pretty quay and quaint mix of artisan and traditional seaside shops, which is just 4 miles away. Also worth a visit is Blakeney Quay, which offers boat trips to see the seals and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve. The cottage is also ideal for visiting National Trust properties, such as Blickling, Sheringham and Cley Beach, as well as stately homes such as Holkham Hall, Houghton Hall and Sandringham. A little further afield lies the traditional seaside town of Hunstanton, which offers lots of attractions including a Sealife Centre and a wide, golden beach on which to relax and enjoy an ice-cream or some traditional fish and chips. With bird watching opportunities galore, great cycling routes and picturesque walks on offer, plus the impressive Thursford Collection with its famous Christmas Spectacular close by too, this really does offer something for everyone. The property is ideal for golfers, with Brancaster and Norwich courses nearby, and just a 10-minute walk from the property is a tearoom with Wi-fi. Beach 3 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile, restaurant 200 yards.
