Old Maltsters Arms Cottage is a semi-detached, traditionally styled, thatched property dating back to the early 17th century. Situated in the centre of the delightful village of Pulham St Mary, the property boasts many original features with beams throughout. During the winter, the Aga in the heart of the kitchen, heats that part of the house and provides constant hot water, while a further wood burner in the living room is ideal for cosy evenings in the cooler months. An enclosed south-facing mature garden offers al fresco dining in the milder weather.

The village of Pulham St Mary is steeped in history dating back many centuries, and is thought to have been occupied by the Romans. The church in the centre of the village dates back to the 14th century, and the local public house dates from the 15th century. Located in South Norfolk, you are close both to the market towns of Harleston and Diss, as well as the fine city of Norwich. Practically on the border with Suffolk, the Suffolk Heritage Coast is easily accessible from here for Southwold, Lowestoft and Aldeburgh. Popular with walkers, Old Maltsters Arms Cottage is the ideal base from which to explore the Waveney Valley. On your return, you can relax in comfort in this traditional Norfolk cottage. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Stayed 4 nights in the 'Old Maltsers Arms Cottage' - a comfortable stay with all amenities available. The cottage is located right on the street with on-the-street parking which, personally, was not the preferred option, but none other was available. Make sure you have what you need before settling down in the cottage as there is only a small convenience store (although very close by, only a few yards), you have to travel further afield for shops, pubs, restaurants, etc. Although there was everything you could possibly need in the cottage, it was a challenge with the facilities (toilet/bathroom) being located downstairs with the bedroom(s) being upstairs. The steps up and down are indeed very steep and narrow. Once inside the cottage the wifi was almost non-existent....usually not a problem whilst on holiday, however a necessity this time due to daughter being abroad and thus contact rather vital. Struggled at times too with the noise from the street, thankfully due to school holidays this was probably reduced to some extent and not at normal levels. Also, found the cottage rental somewhat pretty pricey for 4 nights! Finally, though, the owner could not have been more helpful and willing to help with whatever arose, a really nice lady!
