A stylish blend of contemporary details and characterful period features, this Grade II listed 16th century property has been converted from an historic inn to create a chic holiday retreat.
Originally a public house bought by William Hardy in 1798, this Grade II listed cottage is a welcoming family retreat on Blakeney’s high street in North Norfolk. With features such as exposed beams, low ceilings, furniture created from reclaimed wood, driftwood and rope, and ship floorboards in the bathroom, this flint and brick cottage is a wonderful sanctuary to return to after a day spent exploring the coast. Sunshine-filled days can be spent on the patio surrounded by original lobster pots, while evenings can be enjoyed in the warmth of the stylish lounge in front of the glow of the wood burner, before retiring to one of the two comfortable bedrooms upstairs.
Sitting amongst historic buildings such as the 15th century guildhall, the cottage enjoys an enviable location. From the doorstep you can take a pleasant stroll around the characterful village towards the quay, browsing its collection of shops and stopping for a slice of cake in a tearoom. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants when you fancy a night off from cooking and if you want to see something special, hop on a boat trip to Blakeney Point, the home of a National Nature Reserve and breeding site for grey seals.
For leisurely days at the beach, Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham Bay are both within 10 miles, while Wiveton Hall (1 mile) makes for a fun family day out with its gardens, renowned café serving local dishes, pick-your-own fruit farm and seasonal events such as the giant maize maze.
