    About this property

    Aptly named The Waiting Rooms, this lovely property with a large enclosed garden, is located directly alongside the former London and North Eastern Railway. Once the waiting rooms of the station, this holiday home is adjoining the Station House, the owner’s private residence, which also encompasses a small caravan site (5 pitches). There is direct access onto the old track-bed which now forms part of the Marriott’s Way, a 26 mile footpath, bridleway and cycle route that follows the disused railway line between Norwich and Aylsham, linking up to further footpaths and trails. Whether you are a casual walker, rambler, dog walker or cyclist, you will delight at the rich habitat and wildlife on the many footpaths and cycle routes in the area. For those less mobile, there are suitable surfaces along much of its length.

    The village of Cawston is just a few minutes’ walk and offers a deli/café, shop and pub. Nearby attractions include National Trust properties, Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall, and the unique Thursford collection with its stunning Christmas show. This is an ideal location for exploring the Norfolk Broads and North Norfolk Coast. The North Norfolk beaches are 16 miles and include the traditional seaside resort of Cromer, with its glorious sandy beaches, delicious crabs and all year, end of pier shows. Wroxham is 14 miles, and is known as the capital of the Norfolk Broads with daily boat hire and river trips to explore the expanse of waterways, riverside restaurants, cafés and shops. The historic market town of Aylsham is 5 miles, for shops, cafés, market square, banks and supermarket.

    Experience a nostalgic trip by steam on Norfolk’s longest narrow gauge railway, which runs between Aylsham and Wroxham. The 18 mile round trip runs through pretty countryside, where you can jump on/off at the pretty villages of Brampton, Buxton and Coltishall and explore by foot. Norwich is 10 miles away, a medieval city with cathedral, castle, museum, excellent shopping including two indoor malls, market square, theatre, cinemas, cafés and plenty of restaurants. Beach 16 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ⅓ mile.

    All on the ground floor.
    Living room/dining room: With Freeview TV and double doors leading to original rail platform and garden.
    Kitchen: With electric oven, electric hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, Tassimo coffee machine and washing machine.

    "A really lovely place to stay. Clean and very comfortable. An extra special welcome pack was a lovely surprise. A good place to get away from it all, no complaints whatsoever"

    "Good weeks break, good place to use to tour Norfolk"

    "thank you for making it a relaxing and enjoyable week. Look forward to coming back"

    "the waiting rooms is a fabulous place to stay, especially if you have 2 dogs. we had a working guide dog and a retired guide dog with us and they loved the huge garden to play in. we loved the garden too as it was very secure and the location is very peaceful. the cottage itself is lovely and just the right size for 2 people with 2 dogs. very clean and looks quite new. our only grumble, if there was any at all, was the lack of cupboard space in the kitchen for our grocery shopping, but this wasn't insurmountable and didn't detract from our enjoyment of the cottage. the owners live next door in the station house and they are a lovely friendly couple. our youngest guide dog was fascinated by their young labarador pups. we didn't use the pub or the shop in the village so can't comment on those. Cawston is about 16 miles or so from the coast and not much further to Norwich so easy to venture out. we had a ride on the steam train from Sheringham to Holt and were lucky enough to meet a lovely old chap who had been a steam train driver and had actually driven his train through Cawston station when it was still working. he told us quite a few tales about it. all in all we will be back if we get the chance as it was perfect for the dogs. thank you."

    "A very quiet and secure property. Well located for visiting North Norfolk. Plenty of places to visit all within 30 mins - 1 hour drive. A great pub in the village, literally a couple of minutes walk, serving great food and friendly atmosphere."
    Janet ‐ 8 Jul 2019
    "This property was just perfect for our week in Norfolk. A comfortable and clean house in a quiet situation. Perfect if you like the countryside and in easy reach of the lovely norfolk beaches."
    Carol ‐ 4 Jul 2019
    "Great cottages and such a welcome. We were made very welcome and our two lurchers loved the secure garden. The owners are really lovely people and made sure everything was ok for us.The best equipped cottage we have ever been to and we could walk the dogs from the cottage."
    Colin ‐ 1 Jul 2019
    "Great holiday cottage, good for exploring local area. Very friendly and attentive owners next door. Excellent if holidaying with dog/s.."
    Sandra ‐ 24 Jun 2019
    "Excellent cottage with large enclosed garden for our dogs and very friendly owners living next door."
    David ‐ 10 Jun 2019
    "This cottage is quite new for rent therefore all the equipment, particularly in the kitchen, are of a good quality. It has a sizeable garden to exercise the dog and is situated a short walk from the village centre. There is a local Costcutter supermarket, a pub (not dog friendly) and a deli/cafe but that’s about it. Nevertheless, the location is good as a short drive gets you to a number of National Trust properties and the North Norfolk coast plus the Broads are not far away. Give Great Yarmouth a miss, not worth it!The owners are pleasant, personable people not at all intrusive. They provide a welcome pack which is a nice touch. Overall, this is a property that suits a couple with one or two dogs who seek a quiet break away from home. Recommended."
    Anne ‐ 25 May 2019
    "The cottage is comfortable, clean and well equipped. Lovely peaceful location. Great welcome pack and owners very friendly. Enclosed garden so safe for Bonnie to roam in."
    Desmond ‐ 15 May 2019
    "This was our 4th booking and the best yet. The quality of decor, comfort and the separate, very well-equipped kitchen made this property really special. There were no ‘hand me down’ linens, cutlery or kitchen equipment and the property was fitted out with much thought given to decor and furnishing co-ordination"
    Jeanette ‐ 9 May 2019
    "Fantastic location, spotlessly clean, ideal for dogs with lovely walks. Friendly warm welcome would definitely recommend for a quiet relaxing break."
    Janice ‐ 28 Apr 2019
    "This is our 2nd visit to the waiting rooms.Every thing thought of for an enjoyable stay including the welcome goodies. Unfortunately the pub in the village is not dog friendly"
