Property Description

The Property

Rainbow Cottage is a pretty cottage dating back 400 years which has recently undergone a complete internal refurbishment to create a stylish interior, perfect for modern living.

The cottage has been a very successful holiday let for many years and with this new transformation has super potential to generate a healthy income on an ongoing basis.  Rainbow is ideal either as a main residence or as a second home and is currently advertised with local holiday cottage agencies.

Downstairs has been transformed in to a large open plan kitchen / dining / living space, flooded with light from the window to the front of the cottage and the bi-fold doors to the rear.  There is a newly fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and ample space for a dining table for four and comfortable sitting room area for relaxing and looking out to the garden with the bi-fold doors open in the summer or cosying up with the wood burning stove in the winter months.  

The whole cottage has been newly fitted with double glazed windows.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms, one to the front of the cottage and one to the rear and a newly fitted shower room with mains pressure shower.


Rainbow Cottage is located centrally in the village with unrestricted parking on the street both immediately in front of the cottage and across the road around the village green.

The rear of the cottage is accessed from the shared alleyway to the side of the property and through a gate into a secluded and enclosed courtyard garden, with mature shrubs, hedges and planting.  There is a patio with plenty of space for outdoor dining furniture and a BBQ.

Rainbow Cottage has an excellent track record as a proven holiday let and with the complete refurbishment undertaken by the current owners, there is fantastic scope to improve on past performance.

The cottage is currently advertised with Norfolk Hideaways and Kett Country Cottages (Travel Chapter), both excellent local agents and has an open calendar to accept bookings.

The cottage is available to purchase as a turn key if required, with all furniture, fixtures and fittings in place (minus some personal items, including ornaments, pictures, F&M basket & master bed spread).  This means that a smooth transition of ownership could be managed with no need to update marketing photographs.
