Spend a fantastic holiday in this large 4 bedroom coastal cottage located in a premier position in Blakeney, set amongst the North Norfolk Heritage Coast and AONB.

Spend a fantastic holiday in this exquisitely restored cottage which occupies a premier position in the historic village of Blakeney, set along the North Norfolk Heritage Coast and area of outstanding beauty. It is just a 2 minute walk to the quayside and the views from the cottage are amongst the best from any cottage in the village.

Hop on a boat at Blakeney Harbour (4 miles) or Morston Quay (2.5 miles) to see the famous seals at Blakeney Point. It’s a breeding site for seals so if you go during the winter (November – early January) you’re likely to see the seal pups that are born there. Blakeney is also an excellent place for birdwatching. Alternatively, visitors may like to try their hand at crabbing, a perpetually popular activity with guests of all ages and rather a relaxing way to spend an afternoon by the water. Food lovers are spoilt for choice from the Michelin starred restaurant "Morston Hall" (1 mile) to an array of local pubs, restaurants and delis. For a little country exploration head inland to the Holt Country Park (7 miles) or down the coast to Sheringham Park (9 miles) away. Further away you’ll find the majestic Holkham Hall & Estate. Take a trip across to Cromer (14 miles) and taste the Cromer crab, a local delicacy, and head to the beach to watch the Cromer Pier Show, claiming to be the only end of pier variety show in the world.

Sleeping up to 8 guests, there's loads of space for your family to have a wonderful holiday getaway. Gather together and enjoy a fantastic holiday in North Norfolk from the comfort of this beautiful cottage. The North Norfolk coastline is a renowned natural space and a beautiful place for walking, sailing and golfing. Birdwatch and spot the many migrating birds that visit this coastline and discover the magnificent beaches. 

Clean, white décor combined with warmer colours make this cottage feel welcoming. It’s set off nicely by wooden beams and charming traditional touches. The sitting room, at the front of the house has a bay window which affords uninterrupted views of the quay from the window seat, as well as a TV with Blu-ray player for relaxed evening entertainment.  Next to the sitting room a wonderful kitchen/diner allows the whole family to gather together for big breakfasts and evening meals. The room has been tastefully furnished in a country style and comes equipped with a Range cooker, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, as well as offering a dining table seating eight. There is also a new cloakroom with WC and basin located on the ground floor. Wooden stairs lead from the kitchen to the first floor where there are three bedrooms. Two of these are recently refurbished pretty double rooms one of which has an en-suite WC and basin, whilst the other is a single room with an additional pull out bed. The new modern bathroom, also located on the first floor , has an electric power shower-over bath and WC and demisting mirrors. There is an additional sitting room with its beamed ceiling and feature fireplace, guests can make themselves at home on the comfortable sofa from where they can enjoy the estuary views, or simply cosy-up and watch a favourite programme on the TV. Wooden stairs lead up to the fourth bedroom on the first floor, where guests will find an antique double bed, a built-in wardrobe, and a pretty-tiled feature fireplace, as well as a new En-suite shower room with power shower and WC.  The cottage also benefits from having a new high pressure water system providing high pressure hot and cold water throughout and a new Monarch water softener.

Outside, there’s a private south facing courtyard garden which is a sun trap during the day and includes garden furniture where you can sit and share a drink beneath stars in this Dark Sky destination.

The location in Blakeney is ideal for a view of the harbour, the proximity of the coastal path and also near the shops. The cottage is well equipped for self catering with all the necessary utensils, crockery and cutlery. Beware the several steps and low beams for tall customers! It is a character property with the added bonus of having two sittingRead more rooms so is not cramped in any way. I would happily return another time. Hide

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?
