Extensively enlarged and improved in the last few years, The Patch now offers four comfortable bedrooms, all with electric heaters, hanging space and drawers. Two bedrooms downstairs are housed in the carriage – one with twin beds, the other with bunks,. Please note, there is only one shower room and toilet, which is also in the carriage next to the bunk room.
The other two bedrooms are upstairs, one with a single bed and optional folding bed, and the master bedroom with a kingsize bed and windows looking to front and back.
The rental fee includes bedlinen and personal towels, but if you wish to bring your own you can request a reduction of £7 per person. We provide a duvet and two pillows for each person…
Here there is a large wood burner to keep the place lovely and cosy during the colder months! (reasonable amount of fuel supplied), three seater settee and two arm chairs, extending table and six chairs. Radio with CD and cassette player. Landline phone.
The lounge is also equipped with:
- Maps and books;Lots of books, guides, maps and a bookswap box with an honesty box – money to the RNLI
- TV with Freeview, a DVD player with films
- Games cupboard with games and pastimes for all ages
Fully equipped large kitchen with a table and six chairs, a full size electric cooker with double oven, microwave, and all the usual small electricals, plus some extras such as a slow cooker, electric hand blender and a mixer. But no dishwasher or coffee maker, sorry!
A small larder fridge is fine for daily use, but there is a second fridge and a freezer in an outhouse in the garden, which also houses the washing machine.
The garden is large, private, mainly laid to lawn, and can be made secure for all but the most determined children and dogs. Parents should note there is a lake directly opposite the gate of The Patch.
Plenty of garden furniture in the shed and garage (where the bikes are kept). Barbecue. In the garage you’ll find several bicycles of varying sizes, great for popping down to Judy’s general store or the fish and chip shop (both open from about Easter to the end of October) or generally exploring the local area.
Great for an al fresco breakfast on a summer’s morning, an evening barbecue, or just sitting with a glass of wine on the bench at the front, watching the sun go down over the lake.
A travel cot and highchair are available on request.
Two dogs are welcome at The Patch. Dogs should be cleaned and dried before access into the property. Owners are requested to keep their dogs downstairs and off the furniture.
Cars can park in the front garden – room for several.
Between Easter and early November there’s a well-stocked shop near the beach road, where amongst other things you can buy a variety of food, household supplies, newspapers, bread from a local baker, free range eggs, and local vegetables. Seasonal fish and chip shop, amusement arcade a little further.
Snettisham Village (2 miles inland) supermarket open into the evening. There’s also a small general store, post office, chemist, surgery, hairdresser, art gallery, a quirky second-hand book shop, and a charity shop – and a couple of good pubs of course.
Dersingham village has a Spar general store and a mid-sized Budgen’s supermarket, both with cashpoints.
