  • Cosy period cottage which was the former-bakery with original features such as areas of exposed brick and a fireplace with wood burner
  • Located in the coastal village of Blakeney, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Situated 2.5 miles from the pebble beach at Cley-next-the-Sea and set 1.5 miles away from a National Trust coastal nature reserve
Property code: NCC66

A traditional cottage, once a part of the village bakery, offering comfortable accommodation for three guests situated in the harbour village of Blakeney on the River Glaven in North Norfolk.

Nestled in the heart of Blakeney, this traditional cottage was once part of the village bakery and now offers relaxing accommodation for a family yet is cosy enough for a romantic retreat for two. Curl up in front of the crackling wood burner in the lounge, sit down to a home-cooked meal in the well-equipped kitchen/diner seating five or enjoy a sundowner in the shingled courtyard. As day turns into night, there are two restful bedrooms to retire to, a double and a single, plus a family bathroom to enjoy a long soak before sinking into the sheets. There is also parking available.


If you fancy a bite to eat, the village of Blakeney offers a tempting deli as well as a selection of pubs and cafes and an array of shops to browse. Spend a leisurely afternoon wandering along the banks of the river towards the coast or hop aboard one of the seal-spotting boat trips from the village quay which head west to the nearby National Trust nature reserve.


When you want to feel the sand between your toes, the harbour town of Wells-next-the-Sea (9 miles) boasts a soft, sandy beach backed by a string of colourful beach huts, while the sweeping sands of Holkham Bay, which you might recognise as the dramatic backdrop to the film Shakespeare in Love, are within 10 miles of the cottage. If beautiful gardens are more your thing, head to Wiveton Hall (1 mile) which also offers a pick-your-own fruit farm.

Very functional cottage in a good location.

Reviewed by Marian 12th July 2019

This cottage is in a great location, just a few minutes down to the quay. It has parking space but maybe difficult to navigate at times as the entry is quite sharp and cars park on the road makes turning difficult. It is also opposite the our Room which occasionally has late night music events. The house is well resourced and-everything works well.Read more It would suit 3 adults . It does look slightly dated but nevertheless it is comfortable . Hide

Great cottage well equipped good location

Reviewed by Colin 3rd May 2019

Quite a compact cottage. Onsite parking which is a bonus in Blakeney. Well stocked kitchen with dishwasher. New shower but no instructions, we could not figure out how to get the rainfall part to work! Plenty of hot water. Towels included but did not say that in the booking details. No outside seating which is a shame. House quite drafty downstairsRead more so not that warm at times despite heating. Could be made even nicer quite easily. Hide

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?
