Holiday Rental House
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 table and chairs for two.

The en suite contains two mirrors, wash basin, electric shower, heated towel rail and of course the toilet. Facilities in cottage include: A hairdryer and set of straighteners, a pair of hot water bottles, a torch and a spare set of batteries (there are no street lights in Ludham), a table and chairs for two with a cloth and table mats, plenty of coat hooks, two umbrellas, sewing kits available in the cupboard under the sink, a fully equipped kitchen including all the essentials plus plunger-style cafetiere, decaf Kenco instant coffee, tea bags, salt and black pepper grinders (filled), sugar, vinegar, a supply of tea towels, J-cloths, washing up sponges, washing up liquid, laundry tabs and fabric softener, kitchen paper, soft fluffy towels (two bath and two hand towels per guest), face flannels, facial tissues, hand wash, a nail brush, a complementary shower scrunchy, shower cream, shampoo, toilet paper, bleach and Dettol all-in-one disinfectant and room spray, iron and table-top ironing board, concertina-style clothes airer, a bistro table and set of two chairs with removable cushions in the decked fully private south-facing garden. We suggest that on arrival our guests take full advantage of the comprehensive Welcome to Bakers Cottage Ludham information folder which not only provides a list of handy phone numbers such as local boat and cycle hire and full details about the cottage including health and safety and how to work the heating, but also information about local activities and places to visit during your stay.

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.

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).
