The Old Post Office Details

The Old Post Office is spacious and we have tried to keep the homely family feel & ensure everything you should need is provided. Towels, linen, heating & electricity are all included.

If you stay for 3 days or more there will be a welcome basket awaiting your arrival.

The lounge is a good size & feels very cosy, offering comfy sofa's, bean bags, TV with freesat & free Wifi and a wood burner, especially relaxing on cold winter evenings (fire guard provided). A starter box of logs & kindling is included.

The kitchen offers everything you would expect at home, with ample equipment for 6 + including dishwasher (& tabs) washing machine, new double oven, quality crockery & glasses, etc. etc., and a 6 seater family table. A high chair is also provided. The small annex, attached to the kitchen, houses plenty of picnic ware, cool box, sun parasol, even buckets and spades & small table for long days out. There are extra folding chairs in the outside store, you are welcome to use them for fishing or take them on the beach.

The dining/family room has a large family table, 6 – 10 places, ideal  for a family gathering/social/playing games/meals (with additional crockery & cutlery provided)  There are plenty of family games,  puzzles, books, CD's & DVD's. Another sofa for chilling or perhaps listening to music on the CD/Radio/IPod docking station. The large chair also turns into a single sofa bed, (no linen provided for this bed – sorry). Plus a DVD linked TV.  So the kids can watch DVD's in this room & you can watch Mastermind in the lounge !!!

We have tried to reflect the Norfolk Broads area in the cottage and also combine the cottage's heritage as a former village shop & post office.

There is a small children's room set up as a shop & toy post office, this room has been a particular success with our younger visitors & parents alike (when the children are happy etc., etc., ) The children love the scales/till/pretend money/shopping trolley, swiping their Club Card !! Postman Pat features heavily in this room, along with DVD's books & games (other non-delivery person related toys are available!!) Alternatively this room has amply storage for coats.

Spacious upstairs: The main bedroom has an original Victorian bed, the second bedroom has 2 twin beds & en suite shower room, the third bedroom has a set of large 3ft wide bunk beds. All have good quality beds & fresh clean linen & towels.

Both upstairs showers are electric and the main bathroom has a full size bath, with constant hot water during your stay.

In addition upstairs, if required for the younger visitor, there is a portable Disney travel cot (No linen provided), baby bath, non-slip bathmats, stair gate & plenty of toys. 

Outside : A pretty, private, well established & secure courtyard, family dining table & 6 chairs, BBQ & tools, candles/fairy lights/security lighting, lockable brick storage area (ideal for bikes). Outside toilet, extra folding chairs, you can park in the courtyard or directly outside the cottage.
