Set in a tranquil and secluded spot in a beautiful and idyllic Norfolk village, this delightful bolthole is a charming and romantic retreat which is perfect for exploring both coast and countryside.

Previously an apple store, this cute cottage is set in the grounds of the owner’s Georgian home and yet offers the privacy and seclusion that guests look for in a quiet relaxed break. This is a single storey property, though there are two steps between the well-equipped kitchen area and the lounge/diner. Just outside the front door, a patio seating area is a pleasant place to sit out and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Situated in the pretty seaside village of Cley-next-the-Sea this cottage lies just a mile’s walk across the marshes from the shingle beach. For those with an interest in wildlife, it is worth calling into the Cley Marshes Visitor Centre to find out more about the area and to make use of the viewing deck and cafe. A second cafe can be found just outside the village centre in the beautiful surroundings of Wiveton Hall (0.5 miles), alongside which there is a seasonal pick-your-own farm and a fantastic farm.

The village of Cley-next-the-Sea is one of several villages clustered around this part of Norfolk’s north coast, all of which have their own character. Blakeney (1.5 miles) for example is home to a peaceful National Trust nature reserve home to a colony of grey seals, whilst Salthouse (2.5) has a well-regarded crab shop, a popular spot with locals and visitors alike. Further around the coast there are some marvellous beaches, including the spectacular one at Holkham Bay which stretches out for several miles, ensuring everyone can always find a spot, even in the height of summer.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A perfect location for getting away from it all. Even the pub with good food is in walking distance.

A characterful and comfortable cottage for two plus dog, in an excellent location. Cley is a pretty spot with excellent walks all around, and the Apple house is part of a very attractive property. It is entirely private without being at all remote.

A very sweet little cottage ideal for a couples get away and in a super location. The village, a couple of nice pubs and the coast are all within easy walking distance. We were left a lovely welcome pack for our arrival too which was a nice touch. Would recommend.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
