Garden Cottage, Broomholm
Dating back to at least the 17th century, Garden Cottage is now an idyllic Grade II Listed, brick and flint holiday home and enviable escape to the country and coast. It is also a site of architectural and historic interest.
The stunning Cottage is discretely set well back from the passing coastal road and screened by its neighbour; so passers-by could live a lifetime unaware of Garden Cottage even existing.
Take a walk through the private loke at the side of the property, and you can reach the beach within 5 minutes. This really is a coastal hideaway.
A gentle stroll from the seashore, Garden Cottage rests on a mature, sectioned plot which extends to around a third of an acre and consists of a charming courtyard, a rustic barn, secluded sun terraces and a walled entrance to a hidden green expanse.
The property is approached over a shingled, gated driveway providing off-road parking and access to garaging. There is also on street parking to the front of the house.
Replete with period features this charming property enters into a warming, generous sitting room, which boasts a huge open fire and fireplace spanning nearly the entire length of the room.
From the sitting room, there is a a door to a bright kitchen and rear lobby. The kitchen, with double doors opening to a courtyard and a doorway into a practical utility area, boasts a double Aga and butler sink, with plenty of worktop and storage space.
A short passageway from the sitting room enters a broad lounge where once fresh loaves were baked in an accompanying bread oven, another huge open fire and full length windows, making the room feel super light and airy.
From the lounge a connecting lobby meets the returning utility room, and is an ideal muddy boot and doggy lead storage space.
Downstairs shower room:
From the lobby, there are separate doors which open into a downstairs shower room, ideal for families that are staying with kiddies.
From the lounge a connecting lobby has a separate door which leads to a formal dining room, with open fire again.
Two separate stairways ascend to the first floor where three bedrooms (with plans to make all rooms en-suite by 2022, tbc) and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.
There are two garden areas which surround the cottage, which include secret nooks, rambling pathways and mature trees. Plenty of hidden areas you can find to relax in the sun with a book and a glass of bubbly.
Garden Cottage is a brand new to market, holiday home, located on Walcott Road.
We are going to be working on the house over the next few months, which includes decorating and adding new furniture throughout, to a very high standard.
The owners plan is to have three larger upstairs bedrooms, all en-suite, with one of the sitting rooms downstairs being turned in to an accessible 4th bedroom, opposite the bathroom.
There are also plans to have a games room in the adjacent barn, along with a hot tub in the garden, which we hope to have done by 2022.
We are taking bookings on behalf of our experienced owner now, for stays from January 2022, onwards.
Bookings will be Saturday – Saturday with short breaks possibly available out of season (Nov – Feb excluding school hols).
Please enquire if you would like to book.
Bacton beach is a short walk from the property, through a private loke. A historic coastal village set amidst an endless sandy shoreline offering miles of rambling walks along the beaches and cliff tops.
The suppressing wheels of reformation saw the demise of the nearby Bromholm Priory, which was founded during the early 12th century and now stands in curious ruin.

On the approach to Walcott you go past The Lighthouse Inn pub on your right, keep going until you hit the seafront. Follow the sea wall along on your right and keep going towards Bacton.
