Moat House is an adorable cottage, a good size for two and with its own garden, but it’s the setting that makes it so special. It overlooks the ancient moat of Hindringham Hall and you could watch the wildlife all day. Inside it is comfortable and spacious, with a kitchen and dining area at entry level, and a sitting room down the steps with French doors opening to the garden. There are cream walls and practical carpeting, two sofas, a desk for your laptop, and a small table with upright black leather chairs. Up the stairs is a bedroom under the eaves, carpeted and pristine, with a kingsize bed, white fitted wardrobes and spectacular views. Then a super-duper bathroom – more views – and a handsome dressing room. The friendly owners know all there is to know about North Norfolk: the safe sandy beaches, the world-class golf, the stately homes, the shops and restaurants of Blakeney, Holt and Wells-next-the-Sea. And all those gardens you can visit, starting with Hindringham Hall, free to guests on Wednesdays and Sunday afternoons in summer, and with a tennis court you may use.
