Ideally situated in a charming village nestling on the Norfolk coast, this pretty detached cottage makes a fantastic base for a family looking to enjoy a lovely holiday in tranquil surroundings.

Waters Rush is a traditional, quaint cottage situated in the heart of pretty Blakeney, under half a mile from the picturesque quay. Contemporarily designed inside but built with Norfolk brick and flint, this detached property has three bedrooms, plus a separate lounge, kitchen and diner on the ground floor. There is a pretty conservatory looking out onto the rear, south-facing garden, as well as an enclosed garden to the front of the property and parking for two cars. The property is perfectly situated to explore beautiful Blakeney and all the wonderful attractions nearby.

Stroll into Blakeney to discover a charming village that combines tradition and beauty in a picture-perfect bundle. Admire the stunning views out to sea, wander the idyllic streets, sample some fine local food and drink, or head to the Blakeney National Nature Reserve to spot the seal colonies. You can even venture out to sea on one of the many boat trips available throughout the year.

For a spot of history, head just a few miles east to Cley next the Sea and explore the 18th century windmill on the edge of the marshes or continue to the village of Weybourne for a true sense of Norfolk's tradition and far-reaching past.

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

Well-located house with a well-equipped kitchen and lots of space. However, it was cold on arrival and in the early evening when we arrived home from day trips because the only heating is by storage heaters.

The location of the cottage is excellent. It is on a busy main road but secure behind an ample driveway and a five bar gate. The cottage itself is rather tired and dated but as a dog friendly cottage it is absolutely fine. Towels, linens were all fresh and clean. Good shower, well equipped kitchen, secure gardens front and back and very spacious. TRead morehe sofas were not comfortable though. I would recommend this cottage to anyone with dogs, easy access to the marshes and all amenities. Hide

The beds were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced. I can only liken the experience to sleeping on a cardboard box. The sofas and conservatory furniture were dirty and need replacing by something more comfortable. The chairs in the kitchen needed a seatpad. The bathroom taps have a lot of mould growing in the glass tops which was also preRead moresent on the taps. I wouldnt stay there again. Hide

We loved the location, secure garden and how well the cottage was equipped, (even a few toys, buckets and crabbing gear!).......no highchair or cot available. All beds were very comfortable with summer duvets and extra bedding available if we needed it. Plenty of space. (more than we expected) Lovely views from upstairs. Unfortunately dirty sofa inRead more conservatory (partially disguised by scatter cushions). We'd come again our children loved it. Hide

A good holiday house in Blakeney. It has three good sized bedrooms, an enclosed garden, good for children and dogs, and is handy for almost anywhere in North Norfolk. The property is always clean when we arrive and is reasonably priced for this area.

Roomy house in a good location but needs complete refurbishment.

A super house within walking distance of the village centre.

Comfortable cottage in the right place. Convenient for shopping and hotels for an evening meal. Easy for traversing the coast on the Coasthopper.

Nice size cottage perfectly placed for Blakeney. Could do with sofas and beds changing as not very comfortable.

This is our third time at Water's Rush and we hope to make next year our fourth. I think that speaks for itself.

Kett Country Cottages have been most helpful in my dealings with them over the years we have been coming to Blakeney. Really appreciated the extra hour for departure as my adult daughter is registered disabled and can sometimes need time to get ready. If we can get booked for next year, it will be our fourth year at Waters Rush. Some parts of the hRead moreouse looking a bit tired now but it has three good sized bedrooms, plenty of space downstairs, an enclosed garden and this year towels were provided. Brilliant! Favourite beach Brancaster: stately home Holkam; deli Blakeney & Cley: Manor Hotel for cheap good evening meal plus it is dog friendly. best of all Blakeney and the coastal path. Hide

The CD player did not work. the headboard in the front bedroom was loose and the mattress could do with replacing. But overall it was a great cottage in a good location

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?
