Situated in an idyllic location on the banks of the River Glaven in Letheringsett is Glaven Cottage, dating from 1870. The cottage effortlessly blends character with contemporary flair and provides a wonderfully relaxing retreat for a couple, friends or a family whilst being a short walk from the local pub, The Kings Head.

This exquisite Grade II listed flint cottage is situated in an idyllic location on the banks of the River Glaven in Letheringsett. Dating back to 1870, the cottage effortlessly blends character with contemporary flair and provides a wonderfully relaxing retreat for a couple, friends or small family. Glaven Cottage is tucked away at the rear of The Maltings, a prestigious gated development, which dates back to the 17th century and was once the old Letheringsett Brewery Mill.

The ground floor features a light and airy entrance hall/garden room which leads into the dining kitchen followed by the pretty sitting room. On the first floor are three beautifully decorated bedrooms, all with stunning river views. The master king size bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room, whilst the king size double bedroom and charming single bedroom share the modern family bathroom.

The garden is a real highlight with its paved sun terrace and lawn from where you can sit and enjoy picturesque riverside views or picnic overlooking the babbling stream. Letheringsett is located on the banks of the Glaven Valley and listed in 'Hidden Places of East Anglia' as 'A truly charming place in the most delightful of settings'. The village is famous for its working mill which is the last remaining fully-working watermill in Norfolk and is a great base for enjoying easy access to both coastal and rural North Norfolk.

On the door step is a good pub (two minutes' walk from the cottage), while a popular farm shop with deli and café/restaurant is just over a mile away. It is just a short drive to the North Norfolk coast with its plethora of sandy beaches and the bustling Georgian market town of Holt is only a mile down the road.
