Estcourt House has been sympathetically and tastefully refurbished with great attention to detail, this elegant period property really doesn't disappoint. The interiors are a creative mix of contemporary and traditional furniture, soft furnishings and interesting artworks, which complement each other and the character of the house.
On the ground floor is a warm and homely well-equipped beamed kitchen, an adjoining sunny garden/breakfast room overlooking the courtyard garden, a dining room suitable for more formal 'occasion' dining, a sitting room with ample seating for a full house, and a smaller cosy snug/library with a fire and further television – ideal for a quiet read or to watch the channel of your choice. A cloakroom and utility complete the downstairs. On the first floor there are five beautifully appointed bedrooms, all with sumptuous beds and fine cotton bedding, two of which are en-suite. Outside the attractive south facing, fully enclosed and private courtyard garden has been imaginatively landscaped and has pretty night-time lighting enabling you to make the most of balmy nights.
Burnham Market is an all year-round destination, with fabulous places to eat, boutique and lifestyle shopping, and art galleries to browse. The beautiful North Norfolk coastline and its stunning beaches are within easy reach and walks along the North Norfolk coastal path are a feast for the eyes, senses and wellbeing.
