Charming 200 year old semi-detached flint cottage enjoying a woodburner and enclosed courtyard with seating. Quietly positioned 200 yards from long stretches of sandy beach. Shop and pub within walking distance.

A traditional 200-year old fisherman’s cottage, this delightful property has some attractive period features including a large brick fireplace with a warming wood burner in the welcoming lounge/diner. The cosy kitchen has an authentic cottagey feel to it, whilst the two bedrooms are on the first-floor at the top of a flight of steep cottage-style stairs. To the rear of the property, a shady courtyard garden offers a pleasant place to relax over evening drinks.

Bacton is a great base for visitors to north-east Norfolk, offering an array of handy shops, as well as a pub, cafe, and fish and chip shop all of which are situated within a mile of the cottage. The village beach is just a short 200-metre stroll from the cottage, and offers plenty of sand at low tide, ideal for a gentle swim or paddle.

The bustling resort of Cromer lies 11 miles north of Bacton, passing by a collection of seaside villages with quiet beaches along the way. The Norfolk Broads are also within easy reach of Fisherman’s Cottage, with the Broadland town of Stalham situated just 6 miles away, offering boat hire as well as being home to the interesting Museum of the Broads.

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

This is a lovely cosy cottage in an ideal location, just a short walk from the most glorious beach and a short drive to the local woods. We had everything we needed back in the cottage including the wood burning stove for a cosy evening. I would recommend the local pub where the welcome was warm and the food was great. We also used the dog friendlyRead more cafe Sugar and Spice which was amazing for breakfast and cake stops. Hide

Reviewed by Wendy 14th June 2019

Everything was beautifully arranged and in good order. We enjoyed our stay and would book again in the future. The location was perfect for us with the beach so handy. The only thing I found slightly awkward was the mirrors in bedroom and bathroom too high! Perhaps Im too short!

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?
