Oystercatcher is nestled in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside and is approached via a tree lined avenue. This beautifully presented single storey mews style property is set within the prestigious development of a late Georgian rectory, with communal woodland and grounds extending to approximately to 2.5 acres.

Built within the pretty Victorian walled garden of the Old Vicarage, this cottage has been named after a resident oystercatcher who is often spotted striding the garden walls. The two larger bedrooms have direct access into these gardens and the single room has wonderful views across the meadows and woodlands. The good sized private enclosed rear garden has an outdoor dining area and barbecue and is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the tranquil meadow views with its many visitors, such as oystercatchers, barn owls, mallard, pheasants, French and English partridge, curlew, graylag and barnacle geese and various plover and waders on the marshland beyond.

A short walk will bring you to the centre of this medieval village with its quaint tea rooms, art galleries, antique shops, food pubs and a handmade chocolate and ice cream shop. There are also many places of historic interest, various cycle routes and an abundance of scenic walking, including the 20 acre grounds of Walsingham Abbey, especially beautiful when the snow drops have opened. There are award winning places to eat, such as the Norfolk Riddle restaurant, its adjoining fish and chip shop and the Great Walsingham Barns, serving award winning pies and amazing roast diners. There is also a renowned local farm shop and butcher supplying excellent home grown produce.

This is an ideal location to soak up the relaxing atmosphere of this country cottage retreat or to use it as a base for exploring some of the many North Norfolk attractions such as the seal trips and bird watching at Blakeney, golf at Brancaster, sailing at Morston, shopping in the Georgian towns of Holt and Burnham Market or enjoying the Thursford Collection of steam engines, traditional fun fair rides and Christmas Spectacular Show - or just enjoying easy access to miles of award winning beaches, rspb nature reserves and National Trust Houses and gardens.
