Property Description

The Property

Honeysuckle Cottage is a charming three bedroom brick and flint mid-terrace cottage, situated in the idyllic village of Saxthorpe with a third of an acre garden, which presents an opportunity to the successful purchaser to create a truly unique space.

The cottage has retained many of its character features, such as exposed beams, open fireplaces and the study has an original bread oven. The village has excellent amenities including a village shop, a primary school and a traditional pub, The Dukes Head, serving locally brewed ales and good food.  The village is well located between Norwich and the north Norfolk coast with its beautiful beaches.  

The cottage was built in the late 1700s, originally two properties, and has since been converted to create one larger cottage. The current owners have recently replaced the front windows of the cottage.  The accommodation at Honeysuckle Cottage briefly comprises a kitchen, dining room, sitting room and study and upstairs there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.  There are two outbuildings, one of which houses the oil tank, and the other would work well as an office or studio. 

A garden path leads up to the front door, entering straight into the dining room, featuring traditional Norfolk pamment tile flooring, exposed beams, timbers, and a window facing the front garden. There is a wooden latch door through to the kitchen and another to the traditional Norfolk winder staircase.

The sitting room, adjacent to the dining room and divided by some attractive beams is cosy with an open fireplace and exposed beams, and a window facing the front of the cottage.  

The study, leading from the sitting room at the back of the house has an original bread oven and open fireplace.  From the study, there is a door leading out to the rear and outbuildings.  One of these buildings houses the oil tank and the other provides useful for storage of garden furniture and tools.  

Upstairs, the landing has high vaulted ceilings and exposed beams and plenty of natural light floods through the window above the stairs.  

The principal bedroom is well proportioned with a stunning vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, a feature fireplace and a window facing the front.  

Bedroom two is another double bedroom with a feature fireplace and a built in wardrobe with a window facing the front.  

Bedroom three is a single room and leads off the principal bedroom, with a view to the rear.  

The family bathroom has a bath, hand wash basin and loo, with built-in cupboards and a window looking over the rear.  


To the front of the cottage is a gravel path leading to the front door with lawn each side and mature shrubs and flowers.

At the end of the row of cottages, there is land belonging to Honeysuckle Cottage providing off street parking.  Beyond the cottages is a pathway leading to a large enclosed garden, planted with trees and shrubs and is a wonderful opportunity for keen gardeners.  At the far end of the garden is a beautifully preserved railway carriage, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the garden while listening to the birds.
