Furnace Cottage Walsingham

Sleeps 6, from £735 to £1430 per week

Furnace Cottage is a gorgeous conversion of part of the historic Grade II listed Old Foundry metalworks in Walsingham; originally established in 1809 and closed in 1995. The cottage was lovingly renovated by local tradesmen retaining many original features including exposed flint walls, original beams and metal cogs, to create a luxurious high-ceilinged holiday home. At the heart of this cottage is a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining and sitting area with a vaulted ceiling and staircase to a lovely mezzanine sitting room with countryside views. Up to six guests are comfortably accommodated on the ground floor within two king-size bedrooms (both en-suite) and a third twin room with a shower room.
Outside there's a fully enclosed lawned garden and off-street parking. Situated in an idyllic peaceful location with many local walks from the doorstep, it is only a short walk from Little Walsingham, a picturesque village of considerable historic interest, with its National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham and the medieval ruins of the priory. The pretty village has two good pubs, cafes, an excellent bistro (Victorious), and a renowned local farm shop. Just 10 minutes drive away, or a short journey on the light railway, is the coastal town of Wells-next-the Sea where you can enjoy some crabbing off the quayside, discover the vast sandy beach with its iconic beach huts and sample some fabulous local food in several top eateries.

Walsingham

Location

Just four miles from Wells-next-the-Sea, on the banks of the River Stiffkey, is Walsingham, with a long history of religious pilgrimage and wealth of historic buildings.

The history of Walsingham and its pilgrimages began in the 11th century with the visions of the Virgin Mary by the lady Walsingham, Richeldis de Faverches. She requested that a replica of the Holy House at Nazareth be built at Walsingham. This became 'England's Nazareth', a place of prayer and reconciliation and one of Europe's four great pilgrim places in the Middle Ages. The pilgrimage season at Walsingham runs from Easter to the end of October.

In the village, you can see many 14th and 15th century buildings. One of these is now The Shirehall Museum, Walsingham's Georgian Courtroom where you can discover more of Walsingham’s amazing history since 1061.

Through the museum is the entrance to the Priory Gardens where you'll find the impressive twin turreted 13th century arch, the remains of the medieval priory surrounded by stunning gardens with seasonal flowers. Visit the Walsingham Abbey Grounds, in February and be treated to its shower of snowdrops.

Just a short walk from the museum is Walsingham Bridewell, or House of Correction set up in 1598 (it was rebuilt in the 18th century), standing on the site of the former leper hospital. It housed beggars and vagrants and trained them in trades; it is almost completely unaltered since the last prisoners were freed!

You can find plenty of shops in the pretty village including tea rooms and cafes. Walsingham is also home to the Wells & Walsingham Light Railway, said to be the longest 10-and-a-quarter inch narrow-gauge steam railway in the world.

The village is well worth a visit and is ideally situated close to award winning beaches.
