Property details

Enjoy a holiday with a difference and stay in this beautifully restored and converted Edwardian Norfolk signal box, now a romantic, rural bolt hole for two. How cool is that?

Set amidst the landscaped grounds of the owner's home and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside,The Signal Box has 'upside down' accommodation with an open plan living space on the upper floor to take full advantage of the wonderful rural views from the tall windows that fold around on three sides. Downstairs there is a cosy double bedroom, with en suite shower room.

This is the perfect place to switch off and enjoy a complete break from your daily life but, if you want to stay in touch with the outside world, worry not, all mod cons have been installed. A public footpath passes by outside, so feel free to explore by bike or meander on foot with your dog by your side. Even though it might not feel like it, you are not too far from civilisation, or a beach, if you should feel the need to venture further afield. There is plenty to see and do.

The Signal Box holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

This pretty and peaceful location is a superb base from which to explore both rural and coastal North Norfolk at any time of the year. The village of Melton Constable is a thirty minute walk, or short drive, away where there are local facilities and an excellent butcher's shop selling award-winning sausages. It's just a twenty five minute drive to the beautiful north Norfolk coast where you can discover charming coastal villages, some great gastro pubs, fantastic scenery and lots more. For boutique shopping, the popular Georgian market towns of Holt and Burnham Market are both within easy reach. The nearby market town of Fakenham has a fantastic Thursday market, its own well attended racecourse and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve and The Hawk & Owl Trust on its doorstep. Thursford, famous for its Christmas Spectacular and Steam Collection, is but a short drive away.

Guest reviews

A great week at the Signal Box, peaceful location mainly surrounded by woodland. Quiet and comfortable, a good Base for the Norfolk coast and the Broads. We would definitely stay again.

Spent a glorious week in The Signal Box, the owners were on hand if we needed anything, they were friendly but not at all intrusive of our holiday. It is a great place to stay with a dog, beautiful walks right on your doorstep. The local area is just stunning, we fell in love with North Norfolk, everyone we met was so friendly and welcoming, The Signal Box had lots of brochures on things to do and a folder with local pubs, beaches and restaurants, so you felt like a local almost immediately! I would definitely recommend this place.

The Signal Box is a true Norfolk Hideaway. If you want peace and tranquility away from all the stress of modern day life this is the place to go. We found this beautiful hideaway with a Google search and as soon as we saw it we knew this is where we wanted to stay and we could take our 2 Fox Terrier dogs with us. We booked for a week and the people at Norfolk Hideaways couldn't have been more helpful. The Signal Box is set on the edge of farm where all the out building's have been developed into dwellings. The surrounding countryside is quiet and beautiful with plenty of walks and foot paths to explore in the immediate area. It is also very central for visiting the coast and numerous National Trust sites. Holt is only 15 minutes drive and Wells-Next-To-The-Sea only about 40 minutes drive. The Signal Box itself has been sympathetically restored to it's former glory on the outside with all the requirements of modern living on the inside. The living/kitchen area is upstairs and there are superb views of the surrounding countryside through the 3 sides of glass. The downstairs bedroom is extremely well appointed, has a modern shower room with plenty of room to move about and plenty of storage. Our stay at the Signal Box was extremely pleasant and very relaxing. If we had a complaint it would be a week's stay was not long enough in this comfortable and tranquil little corner of Norfolk. Thank you to the owners Chris and Polly for their hospitality.

The stay signalled a slowdown and relaxing week. Found this holiday by accident on the net. Turned out to be one of the best breaks in a long time..

Something different and quirky. Very interesting accommodation which provided everything we needed. Wonderful, peaceful location. Ideally placed for visiting all of the North Norfolk coast.
