Property Description

The Property

Bumbles is a charming mid-terrace cottage, tucked away in the heart of the village of Northrepps.  It is a well-proportioned modern cottage, with generous ground floor living accommodation, benefitting from a conservatory to the rear in addition to the main sitting room, separate kitchen and downstairs loo.  Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom and outside there is a very striking garden with far reaching countryside views to the rear.  The property also benefits from a garage and two parking spaces.

On entering Bumbles from the front path on the quiet close, the eye is drawn through the property to the conservatory and garden beyond.  The cottage flows well throughout with the kitchen to the front of the cottage, with a large window and a range of modern fitted units, Butler sink, integrated fridge / freezer, integrated washing machine and freestanding range style electric oven and hob with fitted extractor over.  Just across the hall from the kitchen is the downstairs loo.

The sitting room is a good size yet still cosy, with a fitted electric fire in the elegant fireplace and the staircase along the back wall.  There are French doors and a window out to the conservatory beyond, ensuring the room is flooded with natural light.  The brick built conservatory is again a good size, with plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and comfortable seating to enjoy the garden even when it's too chilly to sit outside.  There are windows and French doors out to the garden beyond all with blinds fitted to keep heat either in or out, depending on the season.

Upstairs there are two good sized double bedrooms and the family bathroom arranged off the landing.  The master bedroom lies to the front of the cottage with a window looking out over the close and the second bedroom lies to the rear with lovely far reaching views over the countryside beyond and the village church.  The family bathroom has a modern fitted suite comprising bath with mains pressure shower over, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.


Bumbles is approached via a footpath with the off road parking and garage situated in the parking area adjacent to the cottages.

The garden to the rear is very pretty with mature planting and paving creating a low maintenance but striking garden to sit out and enjoy the lovely views over the countryside beyond and to the church.  There is a gate from the garden leading back around to the garage.

Bumbles is currently a very successful holiday let, marketed through leading local holiday let agency, Norfolk Hideaways.  The cottage has only been available from mid June to the end of October in 2021 and has been fully booked throughout.  The figures quoted above are net of the marketing charges, however changeover costs and utilities would still need to be deducted.

Should you wish to continue with holiday letting, Bumbles could be available as a turn key (by separate negotiation) so the cottage could be purchased all ready to go.

The booking calendars are currently closed from the end of October, to enable full flexibility should the next owners of Bumbles not be keen to holiday let.
