About the property

Double bedroom, bathroom, sleeps two. Onsite parking.

Recently voted one of the top 30 cosiest cottages in England by The Times newspaper, The Maltings is a delightful grain store conversion attached to the two hundred year old Brewery House, built originally as the manager's house for Trunch Brewery.

The property has been tastefully furnished to provide comfort and relaxation all year round with underfloor heating and wood burning stove. Fully enclosed secure courtyard garden with barbecue, garden furniture and ample private parking.

What generous and thoughtful hosts. Thank you for the great effort you made to ensure our stay was extra special! Every care was taken and our holiday was truly lovely.The property was very pretty and super cosy with lots of luxury touches. Our puppy loved her stay too and the garden was ideally secure. The situation was great for a choice of super beaches and the Gunton Arms (a very short drive away) was excellent.
