Greengage is a beautifully restored period cottage in the rural village of Gunthorpe, a fifteen minute drive from the North Norfolk coast. The owners have put a lot of thought into the restoration and the result is a charming, cosy cottage with the special addition of a vintage ‘secret’ potting shed for romantic suppers in front of the roaring fire.
The accommodation is stylish with luxury linens, towels and hand soaps. There will also be a welcome pack waiting for guest’s arrival. Many of the original features such as old latch doors and cupboards are retained.

To the rear of the cottage is a pretty traditionally planted garden with cottage planting and fruit trees. There is a wonderful addition of a ‘secret’ potting shed, the original garden room for the house has been transformed into a romantic dining area complete with open fire, a real retreat for writers, or artists to work peacefully in away from the main house. There is parking on the village green opposite the cottage. The North Norfolk coast is about a 15 minute drive and the Georgian market town of Holt a 10 minute drive. A perfect base for a romantic escape. The garden has a wall and mesh fencing.
The cottage is next door to Quince Cottage, and both cottages could be booked together and the wonderful Potting Shed used as a communal dining room or for a special anniversary/supper.
The village of Gunthorpe is situated in a shallow valley on the eastern side of the A148 King’s Lynn to Cromer road. At the centre of the village is a green where there is a convergence of five roads. In the north west of the village there is a parish church which is dedicated to Saint Mary. Close by is the old village school which was built in 1869, but now closed. It is a very historical village with many interesting buildings including Gunthorpe Hall, designed by Sir John Soane who was the architect of The Bank of England building in Threadneelde Street. Close to the market towns of both Fakenham and Holt and just a short drive to the coast.
