About Meadowside

Surrounded by countryside with its own private stretch of river bank, and a traditional interior.

Sitting next to grassy meadows and bluebell woods with its own private stretch of riverbank, is this idyllic two-bedroom cottage. Meadowside is located in the tiny Norfolk hamlet of Itteringham and is surrounded by undisturbed countryside. Inside reveals a traditional interior with an open fire warming the lounge.


The hedged garden will lead you straight to the banks of the River Bure, giving you miles of riverside walks to explore. As a guest you’re invited to explore Blickling Hall, its walled garden and sweeping parklands free of charge. It’s just a 30-minute walk from the cottage. 


The sandy beaches and cliff top paths of the Norfolk coast are within a 20 minute drive. Blakeney Point Nature Reserve is 20 miles away. The four-mile spit offers the unique opportunity to spot rare wildlife, such as grey seals and tern colonies.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
