Property Description

The Property

The Old Post Office is a very pretty period cottage dating back to the 1850's, which has recently undergone a major programme of renovation and refurbishment works.  It sits mid-terrace in a small row of similar cottages in the sleepy village of Wickmere with a pretty open garden to the front and courtyard garden to the rear.  

The cottage has been transformed and updated by the current owners with great attention to detail, to create a stylish interior that retains all the traditional cottage charm that is so popular in North Norfolk.  

Downstairs there is a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove and window out to the front of the cottage; a funky shower room and separate WC and good sized newly fitted kitchen with space for a dining table, looking out to the courtyard and garden room to the rear.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms; the master, a double bedroom with built in wardrobes and a window to the front and a further single bedroom with charming built in, French day bed style, single bed and window out to the rear of the cottage.

The cottage is fully double-glazed, features fibre broadband and benefits from a large attic for storage.


The Old Post Office is approached down a quiet lane, with a gravelled off-road parking area and front garden leading up to the front door.  

To the rear there is a small enclosed courtyard outside the kitchen door with a great little garden room and a door leading to a the 'secret' garden, a further cute hidden courtyard garden (also enclosed).

The Location

Wickmere is a quiet hamlet originally built to provide accommodation for the workers on the Wolterton Estate, the family seat of the younger brother of the then Prime Minister, Robert Walpole. It is ideally situated to access the North Norfolk coast, with Cromer just 15 minutes away and the popular Georgian market town of Holt within 20 minutes drive.  Blickling Hall is just a few minutes away and the popular Saracens Head pub is walking distance from the cottage.
