This wonderful, modern bungalow offers a family or three couples the perfect holiday home in the picturesque coastal village of Blakeney.

Simply relax when you arrive at this gorgeous, modern holiday home in the coastal village of Blakeney. Less than 500 metres from the quay, from which you can take a trip to see the seals, this is a simply magical location for a Norfolk break. Sleeping up to six guests, and two happy hounds, the three-bedroom, single-storey property is perfect for a family stay. It is in a superb setting for reaching the great sandy beaches of Wells-next-the-Sea, 8 miles away, and Holkham, 10 miles away. Relax in your leafy garden afterwards as you plan the following day’s adventure.

Wander into the reception hall at this bright, modern retreat, which has an inviting, colourful interior. Head into the chic kitchen/diner to make a cup of tea. Make the most of the high specification equipment to prepare dinner later on, with the local shellfish and freshly picked samphire you have bought. Dine together in here or out in the sunshine. You have a utility room adjacent. Spend evenings together in the lounge area, with the wood burner crackling or the doors open onto the garden, depending on the season. Watch a film on the Smart TV before heading off to one of the three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom. Outside, make the most of the excellent garden space as often as the weather permits. You also have parking for two cars.

Plan day trips to the traditional, Victorian seaside towns of Sheringham, 9 miles away, and Cromer, 13 miles away, where you will find restaurants and pubs serving famous Cromer crab. Walk on the marshes at Stiffkey, 5 miles away, with its abundance of wildlife, and visit splendid Holkham Hall, 10.5 miles away, where you can wander through 3,000 acres of parkland.

We had a great time. Good size enclosed garden for the dogs. Beds really comfy and plenty of room to accommodate five adults and two dogs. Great location with some lovely walks. Good choice of restaurants/pubs although not all dog friendly. Will definitely be returning.

Lovely characterful modern house with lots of space and well appointed kitchen. Great location on the edge of Blakeney so easy to walk to shops and pubs, plus lots of places to explore nearby. The house was comfy and warm, with a very secure garden for dogs.

We had a wonderful holiday at Samphire Retreat over Christmas. It's a beautiful house with 3 double bedrooms (with very comfortable mattresses) and the lounge really does have the 'wow' factor, particularly when the log burner is going strong! The kitchen was very well equipped and the enclosed garden was great for 2 dogs with space for them to runRead more around. It's a short walk to the local deli, bakery and a couple of pubs/restaurants too. Hide

This is a beautiful bungalow. It is spacious and generally well equipped although, oddly, there are no hangers. It is ideally suited to explore this gorgeous part of Norfolk. There is much to recommend this holiday home.

Lovely place to stay, very well equipped kitchen and in a good location. Good enclosed garden for the dog, with excellent walks right from the house. Blakeney is lovely but you seem to need to book evening meals in local restaurants more than a day in advance.

Lovely clean, spacious, well equipped (bring clothes hangers) dog friendly bungalow in charming village. 3 double beds. Walking distance from the quay provided you are able bodied; elderly or infirm will need to drive down the narrow village lane to National Trust car park at the waters edge which can be busy in summer or at high tide. Crabbing on Read morethe quay very popular as are seal trips from Morston. Good for walks and birdwatching. No beach in Blakeney but 20min drive from super Wells beach. Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
