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.

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

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?
