Drive through the gate at the end of the lane and park your car on our drive, parallel to the fence. There is plenty room for two cars.
Go through the garden gate, and past the patio doors, to the front door.
Enter the small hallway and turn right into the:
The large, eat-in kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, whether you like to cook up a Full English with a pot of builder’s tea, or prefer keep it simple with croissants and a cafetière of fresh coffee. The owners are keen cooks and you will find a slow cooker, Magimix food processor, stick blender and sandwich toaster. There is even a waffle maker which is always a hit with the children.
There is plenty of cupboard space, along with a large fridge freezer; perfect for anyone with raw-fed dogs or to keep lots of ice cream on hand in the summer. And forget washing up, as there is a dishwasher. One of the wall sockets has two handy USB charging points.
The dedicated doggy cupboard has an assortment of feeding bowls, micro-fibre towels, poo bags, emergency leads and holiday tags.
Through the kitchen, and out into the lobby where the washing machine located. Turn right into:
Downstairs Shower room:
The shower room was refitted in May 2018, and provides a sleek and modern walk-in shower. Water pressure at Fenside is really good, and a huge hot water tank provides a great shower experience. There is a large mirror with lights and a cupboard to store your lotions and potions.
Return though the kitchen and walk across to the:
This gorgeous room has its own feature painting right outside the doors. Every window at Fenside enjoys wonderful views, but the very best experience is from the lounge. Whatever the season, there is always something to see. Sit quietly with a cup of coffee and watch for wildlife; pheasant and deer are regular visitors to the farmer’s field just a few feet away. Open the patio doors in the summer and watch the sunshine shimmer on the ripening barley. During the winter months, listen out for crowds of migrating geese that set down in the fields. And of course, the gorgeous sunsets in our breathtaking Norfolk skies. On a clear night you will get an amazing view of the stars.
The lounge itself is spacious and stylish. There is plenty of seating, with noodle mats so you can snuggle up with your dogs. The feature fireplace has a wood burner, which is perfect for a cosy winter night in. Pour yourself a glass of wine, pull up a footstool, and watch a film on Netflix.
The owners have chosen a wood effect, vinyl tile flooring, with a textured finish, to minimise the possibility of slippy paws (and feet!). They have provided a selection of games, jigsaws, cards and books to keep you amused, along with a DAB+ radio with Bluetooth so that you can play your own music.
Come back out of the living room and turn left to go upstairs.
The first bedroom is a single with a very comfortable, medium support sprung mattress with a thick mattress topper. There is a bedside table with reading lamp, and a chest of drawers.
Twin Bedroom (or as the owners call it, the Awkward Room):
The second bedroom is light and bright, and has twin beds, with the chimney breast between. There is room for bedside drawer units, but not a wardrobe, and so the owners have fitted clever fold-out hooks with plenty of hangers. The beds have hotel quality mattresses, with thick mattress toppers, providing both support and comfort, and there is space underneath to store your cases and holdalls, or to push the dog beds away during the daytime.
Exit the twin bedroom and walk back along the landing to the:
This fresh room has a traditional white bath suite and neutral tiling, with metallic mosaic edge. There is a large mirror with lights.
The double room is painted in a soothing cream, with tones of red and grey. It has a comfortable double bed with pocket-sprung mattress, filled with natural silk and wool fibres. The owners have ensured that all of Fenside’s beds have high quality, 100% cotton bedding, with cosy throws and a choice of duvet weights to keep you comfortable. Bedside tables, a chest of drawers and hanging rails with plenty of hangers complete the room.
The medium-sized garden is laid mainly to grass with borders and shrubs. There is a patio table and chairs, with parasol and cushions. The palisade fence encloses the property completely, however, please be aware that it is just 3 to 3.5 feet high. This gives uninterrupted views across the fields. Being at the very end of the lane, there is no passing traffic, however, for anyone with a reactive dog, please be aware that the driveway to the house next door goes around the perimeter of the garden, and so there is the occasional person or car coming or going.
