About Fiona Scott
Fiona and Tim Scott worked as schoolteachers in Derbyshire for many years, but are now retired and live permanently in Trinity Cottage (which is attached to Dove Cot). They bought the cottage many years ago for holidays, partly because Tim is from Norwich and they had both always loved Norfolk, but also because it filled all their needs for family holidays, situated as it is near the sea, the Broads, Norwich and the wonderful countryside and bird sanctuaries of North Norfolk.
Fiona Scott purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Fiona Scott chose Brampton
We bought Trinity cottage and its annexe cottage (now Dove Cot) when we first married, as we lived in a school house and wanted somewhere to go in the holidays. We chose Norfolk because we both loved the area, and enjoy walking, cycling, and other outdoor pursuits, as well as the wonderful fresh air and good weather. Brampton is a very pretty village nestling near the water meadows of the Bure River, just 3 miles from the beautiful historic market town of Aylsham and 11 miles from the stunning mediaeval city of Norwich.
What makes this Cottage unique
Dove Cot was built in the 18th century in flint and Norfolk clay lump, with brick facing. The property is renovated to a high standard whilst retaining all the character of such a historic building. The cottage is centrally heated, but also has an open fire in the sitting room. The staircase is rather steep and twisty (so possibly not suitable for the very elderly), but the whole building exudes charm and cosiness. The surroundings are beautiful and particularly peaceful, as Brampton is not on a 'through' road.

This cozy cottage in a quaint Norfolk village matches its description perfectly. It has everything you need plus a very comfortable bed. Just be careful on the stairs!!
Charming rural cottage.
This is a small cottage that is attached to the owners property. The building itself is old and has many original features but has also been fitted out with modern kitchen appliances and has a nice bathroom. The 2 bedrooms are accessed by a narrow staircase which takes some getting used to - care needed !
Brampton is a very quiet village and consists only of houses and the inevitable church (and a ping pong table in a field...!), but there are some pubs/shops within a few miles at other villages. The owners are very helpful and always on hand.
Charming and peaceful location
The cottage is very charming with old beams and a bread oven. It is situated in a lovely rural area which means you get the peace and quiet of a lovely location. There are many places to visit within this area with wonderful views. The hosts are lovely people and are very welcoming. We would love to go back and enjoy another holiday there again.
A quaint cottage located in the quite village of Brampton. Great location, short drive to beaches in Cromer, Sheringham and Mundesley. Also near to a number of natural trust properties
Perfect for small young family
The location is great, within easy drive of various activities and the beaches - from this base we went all over the place!
Then when you come home exhausted the village is beautifully quiet so small people can be transferred from car to bed without too much trouble.
Our 4 year old daughter absolutely loved the fact her bedroom was lower than ours - her secret rose room.
Convenient parking bay, little garden, private yet hosts are on hand if you need anything, quiet, cosy. We had a great holiday, only wish we could have stayed longer.
The perfect cottage to explore East Anglia.
Brampton is well located for travelling through East Anglia. The cottage is cosy and well equipped, with a lovely sunny garden too. We will certainly come back here!
12 miles from the nearest beaches at Cromer, Overstrand, Mundesley, etc. There is wealth of lovely beaches to choose from in Norfolk, all accessible, and none too far given the position of the cottage at the geography of Norfolk.

Aylsham is a good shopping centre, still retaining many traditional shops (3 good butchers, green grocer, traditional baker, etc), as well as 3 small-moderate-sized supermarkets. There is a Framers' Market twice a month on Saturdays, and various market stalls (fruit and veg, fish, cheese, etc) on different days each week.
Norwich has all the shopping outlets one would expect from a big city.
