This thoughtfully renovated traditional fisherman's cottage is an ideal family holiday home located just a short walk from the beautiful sea front in the popular and bustling coastal town of Cromer.

Skippers Rest is a traditional fisherman's cottage brimming with seaside cottage character. As well as a stunning interior, it is located in a very enviable position just 50 yards from the sea, perfect for those who want to walk straight to the beach. A perfect bijou cottage for couples (and their dog!) seeking a traditional break to the seaside, you can let time pass you by as you sit out on the patio, a sun trap rarely found in these seaside cottages.

Cromer is a traditional seaside resort with a stunning cliff-top setting and wide sandy beaches running down to the sea. It is famous for its fishing fleet that still brings in its catch for sale in the town, and its fine pier, with its magnificent end of pier Theatre. Learn about local history at the museum or RNLI Henry Blogg lifeboat museum and marvel at the animals at Amazona zoo.

While there are lots of pubs, restaurants and shops in Cromer, you also have lots of seaside and inland villages nearby to explore. Sheringham is 5 miles to the east where you can spend a day at the beach or walk along the Norfolk Coast AONB, where you will also find the National Trust Blakeney National Nature Reserve.

What an amazing little bolt hole! Right in the heart of Cromer, a stones throw away from the beach, couldnt ask for a better location. The cottage itself is small but perfectly formed, be careful on the stairs if you find stairs tricky usually, but everything about the place is homey and well maintained.

Just back from a week and would love to go back. The position of the cottage was near perfect and while the stairs are steep the cottage was beautiful and really comfortable. Close enough to everything including the Pier, promenade, chippy's, pubs, cafes and shops. The Ice Cream shop next door was delicious. I'd give the kebab shop next door but onRead moree, a big miss. The outside space was big enough to sit out, normally with an ice cream. It's a great place for walks, wanders and mini golf Hide

A lovely cottage right in the heart of Cromer, near the sea, shops, pubs and restaurants. The cottage is well equipped and has a lovely, sunny courtyard at the back. The bedrooms are airy and comfortable. The only thing that may be a problem for some is the stairs, as they are steep and have a turn at the bottom. A great break!

Lovely house with everything you need, very comfortable & decorated to a high standard. Stairs are quite steep but we soon got the hang of them. Mrs Lawrie emailed us information about the house, surrounding area & ideas for visits which was extremely helpful. We had a lovely week at Skippers Rest & would definitely recommend it.

Skippers Rest Cottage is a lovely character place to stay in , very quaint. Good location, close to the sea. Comfortable, everything was there that you would need. We loved it and would book again. The stairs are a little steep, so if your not very mobile could be a problem, other than that, perfect.

The cottage has everything you need and is in a prime location close to shops, pubs, restaurants etc and the seafront. It does get a little noisy in the evenings/early morning especially at the front bedroom. Description stated private enclosed garden, however this is shared with the cottage next door and they were in and out everyday even leaving Read morethe gate to the alley open, which was quite stressful and not really suitable for our 2 dogs.

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?
