Muddy says: Fan of Grand Designs? Like to see old buildings restored for a different purpose? An old dairy, Marshgate Cottage is an architectural masterpiece containing three different digs of varying sizes
They say that three is a crowd, but not in this instance. The Dairy, The Coach House and Stable Cottage combine to make up Marshgate House – a gated, cobbled area of three historic buildings, each lovingly converted into holiday cottages.
Ideally located in a quiet location a 10-minute walk from the centre of the bustling market town of North Walsham – with its dog-friendly cafe and country pubs – Marshgate House sits equidistant from beautiful Norfolk beaches and The Norfolk Broads.
An old Dairy, The Dairy is perfect for couples, sleeping two guests in a pretty double bedroom, while also boasting parking for two cars, a cosy lounge, an open-plan kitchen, a south-facing garden and all the character you could muster.
The larger Coach House (unsurprisingly an old Coaching House) offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a terrace and an imaginative mezzanine level accessible from the lounge – check out the beautiful ceiling.
Similar in size, Stable Cottage is a beautiful two-storey, two-bedroom property set within a pretty, enclosed garden, with stripped wood floors and beamed ceilings. All three properties are dog-friendly and have quality firm/medium mattresses with feather bedding; fully-equipped, modern kitchens; TVs/DVD players; games; reading material; and dog supplies.
