Bakers Cottage Ludham

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Ludham, Norfolk, East Anglia, England
Built in the 1700s, and nestling in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, Bakers Cottage is less than ten miles from the coast and is an ideal base for walking, boating, cycling, birdwatching, fishing and of course relaxing!

Small but perfectly formed, the cottage boasts original features such as beams made from local driftwood (apparently salvaged from Great Yarmouth beach), and a quaint cast iron fireplace which, due to the thatched roof, is no longer in use but still makes an attractive focal point in the living room.

On-road unrestricted parking is available immediately outside the cottage.

You enter directly into an attractive lounge-diner with a terracotta tiled floor and rug, a 42' screen TV with freeview, a super comfy leather sofa, original art on the walls, a good selection of books, maps and games and a drop leaf dining ta...

Interaction with guests
If you could let us know what time you are planning to arrive that would be a great help, and then again when you are about 30 minutes away. That way we can ensure we are there to greet you and give you the key. We are just a few doors down the road - close enough to be there if you need us during your stay ....but far enough away not to get under your feet! GUESTS! Please ask if you'd like us to get any of the following 'tide-me-over' consumables ready for your arrival, to save you having to do any shopping at the very beginning of your stay: milk, bread, butter, eggs, breakfast cereal, that kind of thing. You can pay us back at the end of your stay.

Everything you need is supplied. Kitchen fully stocked and clean, ready for use. Even small freezer has been squeezed in. What's not to like.

This cottage is small but perfectly formed! Beautiful like a picture on a chocolate box and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. Spotlessly clean and well maintained with many well thought out personal touches. Not a big property but absolutely ideal for a couple and with...More

Lovely location in Ludham, not far from Great Yarmouth, Horning nearby for a river trip on The Broads. A lovely little cottage. All requirements thought of. Beautiful private area at the back of the cottage for outside dining.

About the neighbourhood
Bakers Cottage is less than ten miles from the coast and is an ideal base for walking, boating, cycling, bird watching, fishing and of course relaxing!

The village of Ludham is attractive and quintessentially English, nestling in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. It has a family run carvery pub, a shop (with a delicatessen and a Post Office), butchers and doctors surgery very nearby and the River Thurne and Womack Staithe are just a short walk away.

The village stands in an area of Norfolk known as The Norfolk Broads. It is surrounded on three sides by the rivers Ant, Bure and Thurne and it has its own small broad, Womack Water. Wind mills and pumps are abundant!
Getting around
Ludham is on a good bus route including to Norwich, North Walsham, various Broads and Great Yarmouth. Six miles from Bakers Cottage is Hoveton and Wroxham train station which offers regular trains to North Norfolk and the coast including Sheringham and Cromer as well as to Norwich. Sprowston Park and Ride is 11 miles from Ludham and is the easiest way to visit the beautiful and historical City of Norwich. Norwich Airport is 15 miles away.

If you want to come by train please head for Hoveton and Wroxham train station (HXM) - this involves a simple change at Norwich Station - and I will collect you and drive you back to Bakers Cottage (a mere six miles).
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: NORWICH: 24.0 km
Railway: HOVETON AND WROXHAM (HXM): 10.0 km
If you are coming by car, our advice would be to aim for Acle via the A47 and then head towards Billockby on the A1064, turn left on the B1152 which eventually joins the A149 at Repps-with-Bastwick to Potter Heigham then, passing through Potter Heigham, continue on the A1062 to Ludham. In case you use a SatNav, tap in 3 Yarmouth Road, Ludham NR29 5QF If you arrive from the Potter Heigham direction, then Bakers Cottage is on your left, shortly after entering the village and before the sharp bend at the Kings Arms pub. It is the third cottage in a row of five.
