This beautifully renovated traditional cottage is set in a delightful and idyllic village near the stunning coast of Norfolk and makes an ideal base for a family holiday in tranquil surroundings.

Originally two separate farm cottages, a sensitive renovation has brought quality and charm to this delightful higgledy-piggledy three-bedroomed property in the heart of the village of Stiffkey, just a mile from the North Norfolk coast. A traditional farmhouse feel runs throughout the cottage and a cosy sitting room with wood burner and exposed beams gives a real home-from-home feeling. The enclosed walled garden and pretty front patio with rural views provide the ideal place to have a morning coffee or al fresco lunch on warmer days.

Take a stroll down to the village shop, only half a mile away, to stock up with essential provisions. The pub is under a mile away and perfectly positioned for walking off that Sunday roast! For longer walks, there are lots of coastal and inland walks nearby, with the salt marshes and Blakeney National Nature Reserve and their wide range of birds and plant life the highlight of any trip to the area.

If walking is not your thing, take a seal trip out to Blakeney Point or head along to the popular seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea, 4 miles away, where you can spend hours on the beach crabbing as well as browsing the charming shops, cafes and restaurants. Hop aboard the Wells to Walsingham light railway and enjoy the nostalgia of an era of steam travel that only a day on the world’s smallest public railway can bring.

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

Prospective clients should be made aware that access to the first floor would be difficult or impossible for people with limited mobility due to the very steep and curved stairways. One of our group has a neurological long term condition and managed the stairs with care, however if we had been booking this property in a couple of years time when hiRead mores mobility has deteriorated further he probably would not have been able to access the bedrooms.

I found the cottage very peaceful and an idyllic setting for a nice restful time. The bed was extremely comfortable and I found the whole cottage to have a warm and friendly feel about it. Its location in Stiffkey was ideal for exploring the North Coast of Norfolk

Reviewed by Alex 24th August 2019

Great location - you can walk to the north Norfolk coastal footpath from the cottage. Short drive to beaches, supermarket etc. Backs onto a busy road so in the garden and bedrooms it is noisy with traffic - this is not mentioned in the description so be warned! Excellent water pressure ! The shower is great. Comfortable and welcoming.

Reviewed by Rachael 1st July 2019

Lovely cottage, spacious with a beautiful outlook over the front looking down tbe private drive. Well equipped and wonderfully clean everywhere also comfy beds and a shower like Niagara. I would recommend this cottage with a slight downside of a busy road directly behind but didnt affect our stay at all.

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?
