    Enjoy a holiday with a difference and stay in this beautifully restored and converted Edwardian Norfolk signal box, now a romantic bolt hole for two. How cool is that?

    Enjoy a holiday with a difference and stay in this beautifully restored and converted Edwardian Norfolk signal box, now a romantic, rural bolt hole for two. How cool is that?
    Set amidst the landscaped grounds of the owner's home and surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside,The Signal Box has 'upside down' accommodation with an open-plan living space on the upper floor to take full advantage of the wonderful rural views from the tall windows that fold around on three sides. Downstairs there is a cosy double bedroom with en-suite shower room.
    This is the perfect place to switch off and enjoy a complete break from your daily life but, if you want to stay in touch with the outside world, worry not, all mod cons have been installed. A public footpath passes by outside, so feel free to explore by bike or meander on foot with your dog by your side. Even though it might not feel like it, you are not too far from civilisation, or a beach, if you feel the need to venture further afield. There is plenty to see and do.
    The Railway Carriage which resides nearby, and sleeps two guests, can also be booked if your friends wish to come along as well.
    Additional Information:

    Two well behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge).

    The stairs leading down to the lower floor are a little tricky for guests with limited mobility.

    Check-in time for this property is 2pm.

    "A romantic, tranquil place and if you like something a little on the quirky side this is for you. Lovely for dog walks too and total peace and quiet."
    Denise Collins
    "Chill out place in a storm! Beautiful location. Amazing place to stay. Clearly renovated with lots of TLC. Nice walks on the doorstep!"
    "We really enjoyed our few days at the Signal Box – it was the perfect place to retreat to in the evenings after our days out exploring Norfolk. It is located in a peaceful village – but is close enough (by car) to the coast and other lovely places Norfolk has to offer. We cooked most nights at the Signal Box – all amenities/utensils provided, everything was easy to find and use. We would definitely like to visit again and would also recommend the Signal Box to anyone wanting to stay in something a little bit different but that are also looking for a little bit of comfort too."
    Scott Jones
    "My wife & I stayed in the Signal Box late December following a busy Christmas. If you're looking for a reasonably remote (the owners live nearby), rural retreat in a converted signal box, then this is for you. Cosy, without being cramped, the living accommodation on the first floor offers great views, whilst the ground floor en-suite bedroom, is furnished to a high standard. if you're willing to walk for 2.5 miles (approx. 1 hour), there is a decent pub called the Three Horseshoes, offering good food in the village of Briston. further afield is the great town of Holt along with coastal areas such as Blakeney. We had a most enjoyable stay and would recommend for couples looking to escape for a few days."

    "A wonderful place. The Signal Box is a beautifully converted railway signal box. We had a very relaxing long weekend here. Everything is very comfortable and well thought out. It's in a great location if you want to go out and about. There are also great walks if you prefer not to go anywhere. We loved it there and would definitely like to go back."
    Wendy Cogger
    "A Great Place to Stay. We booked a week at The Signal Box in mid-June and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was small but comfortable for 2 people and lived up to the photographs on Norfolk Hideway's website. The setting was lovely, situated at the end of the owner's garden and backing on to woodland. It was very quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable. The owner left Ordnance Survey maps and leaflets for ideas on places to visit and we added to them before we left. The position was ideal for covering any destination on the north Norfolk coast, whether you wanted a beach, railway excursion, or a country house visit. Also, there was an interesting photo album showing how the Signal Box was moved to the site and renovated into the holiday home it has become. A brilliant use of a building that could have been lost."
    Harris Family
    "A great week at the Signal Box, peaceful location mainly surrounded by woodland. Quiet and comfortable, a good Base for the Norfolk coast and the Broads. We would definitely stay again. "
    Stevens Family
    "The Signal Box is in a very quiet and convenient location with plenty of walking and cycling nearby."
    Clare Cusack
    "Spent a glorious week in The Signal Box, the owners were on hand if we needed anything, they were friendly but not at all intrusive of our holiday. It is a great place to stay with a dog, beautiful walks right on your doorstep. The local area is just stunning, we fell in love with North Norfolk, everyone we met was so friendly and welcoming, The Signal Box had lots of brochures on things to do and a folder with local pubs, beaches and restaurants, so you felt like a local almost immediately! I would definitely recommend this place."
    Peter Beardmore
    "The Signal Box is a true Norfolk Hideaway. If you want peace and tranquility away from all the stress of modern day life this is the place to go. We found this beautiful hideaway with a Google search and as soon as we saw it we knew this is where we wanted to stay and we could take our 2 Fox Terrier dogs with us. We booked for a week and the people at Norfolk Hideaways couldn't have been more helpful. The Signal Box is set on the edge of farm where all the out building's have been developed into dwellings. The surrounding countryside is quiet and beautiful with plenty of walks and foot paths to explore in the immediate area. It is also very central for visiting the coast and numerous National Trust sites. Holt is only 15 minutes drive and Wells-Next-To-The-Sea only about 40 minutes drive. The Signal Box itself has been sympathetically restored to it's former glory on the outside with all the requirements of modern living on the inside. The living/kitchen area is upstairs and there are superb views of the surrounding countryside through the 3 sides of glass. The downstairs bedroom is extremely well appointed, has a modern shower room with plenty of room to move about and plenty of storage. Our stay at the Signal Box was extremely pleasant and very relaxing. If we had a complaint it would be a week's stay was not long enough in this comfortable and tranquil little corner of Norfolk. Thank you to the owners Chris and Polly for their hospitality. "

    "The stay signalled a slowdown and relaxing week. Found this holiday by accident on the net. Turned out to be one of the best breaks in a long time.. "
    Rosemary Baker
    "Something different and quirky. Very interesting accommodation which provided everything we needed. Wonderful, peaceful location. Ideally placed for visiting all of the North Norfolk coast. "
    "Quirky quaint and comfortable Lovely hosts and would definitely recommend to friends Thank you very much"

    Harding Family
    "What a delightful place. Aided by wonderful weather, we had a lovely time. Walking the coastal paths, bird watching and getting blasted by the wind it was a treat to return to this warm cubbyhole with its panoramic views and super facilities. It has been beautifully converted with great respect to its heritage & is well equipped."
    The Summers Family
    "We had a fantastic weekend in a very comfortable and well equipped signal box! Superb location and away from it all feel to the whole weekend left us relaxed and refreshed. A super comfortable bed and very good shower (plenty of hot water) plus lovely surroundings made for a weekend of bliss!"
