This cosy and comfortable 18th century Grade II listed pub conversion offers fantastic accommodation for a larger family wanting to explore the stunning coast and countryside of northern Norfolk.

Packed with unusual period features such as the wood burner in the kitchen over which hangs a recycled boat hull, and the ceiling beams made from ships’ masts, this Grade II listed cottage is far from run-of-the-mill and is a truly special place to stay. Three bedrooms are located on the first floor, but there is also an additional twin room as well as snug area on the second floor, but please do be aware that this room is not suitable for children due to the steep cottage-style stairs leading up to it.

Set on the tidal reaches of the River Glaven, with a pretty quay, the village of Blakeney is a thriving coastal community offering a selection of shops and places to eat, as well as the interesting remains of the 15th century guildhall which is maintained by English Heritage. The neighbouring Blakeney Nature Reserve is an unmissable day trip, particularly for those who are keen to see the resident seals and can be reached by boat from the village quay.

Continuing in either direction along the coast from Blakeney, visitors will find numerous pretty seaside villages, as well as the towns of Wells-next-the-Sea (9 miles) and Cromer (13 miles), both of which boast fantastic sandy beaches. Quieter shingle beaches can be found close by in Cley-next-the-Sea (2.5 miles) and Weybourne (6 miles), both of which are great places to enjoy leisurely coastal walks.

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

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?
