Church Lane, Great Bircham, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE31


3 Bedroom House Sold

Tucked away on this rarely used lane in the heart of the village, Crab Apple Cottage looks exactly the type of pretty little home one imagines when they hear the phrase 'English Country Cottage!' Set within a perfectly proportioned and well established garden the cottage is orientated to the south with wonderful field views beyond and simply full of period charm. Downstairs and to the front there are two very well proportioned reception rooms, both with open hearth fireplaces and with the dining room having French doors out to the front garden. To the rear there is a large kitchen breakfast room, the family bathroom and the third bedroom as well as an adjoining garage. Upstairs there are two further double bedrooms with a 'Jack and Jill' en-suite WC. The cottage has been lived in as a much loved home for many years and whilst it has been maintained and cared for throughout that time, it would now benefit from cosmetic refurbishment. However, once done, it would be hard to find a more perfect cottage in North Norfolk.

GREAT BIRCHAM The village of Bircham lies on the border of the Sandringham Estate, about 7 miles from the north Norfolk coast and comprises of three parishes:- Great Bircham, Bircham Tofts and Bircham Newton. Great Bircham has a good farm shop with deli, a church, St Mary's and the Kings Head Hotel with award winning restaurant. There is also a fully restored windmill, considered to be the only working windmill in this part of the county, where visitors can climb five floors up to the fan stage and on windy days, can see the sails and milling machinery turning and admire the view. The mill also has a bakery, tea room, gift shop, small children's farm and cycle hire centre. Bircham Newton has a small, private trout fishing lake and the Church of All Saints, one of the smallest in the county, with no porch, few windows and Victorian box pews. Nelson's daughter Horatia married Philip Ward, who was the rector and brought up a large family at Church Farm. Bircham Tofts is recorded in the Domesday book as Stoftstan, referring to its stony soil and merged with Bircham Newton in 1719. The closest train station is at King's Lynn providing direct rail links to Cambridge and London King's Cross.
