Set in the heart of an idyllic village on the Norfolk coast, this spacious, welcoming and traditional cottage makes a cosy and ideal holiday home for a family looking to enjoy this stunning area.
Built from traditional Norfolk flint, this charming detached cottage in Cley-next-the-Sea has an enviable location overlooking the village green. Sitting under the gaze of a magnificent 12th-century church, its wooden exposed beams and cream Aga give a traditional feel, with an elegant formal dining room providing the perfect backdrop for a special occasion. A huge vaulted contemporary-style kitchen leading out to a stone-built courtyard gives a touch of luxury to the property, perfect for a stylish escape to the coast.
With a pub and shops under half a mile away, you’ll have all the essentials close at hand. A deli, smokehouse and pottery studio feature in the village as well as a pretty tearoom or two. Dominated by a stunning 18th century windmill standing majestically on the edge of the marshes, it is just a mile down to the long stretch of coast where you can discover lots of wonderful walking and spectacular scenery.
Explore the acres of marshland of the Blakeney National Nature Reserve, 3 miles away, which stretch all the way towards Holkham National Nature Reserve. In Holkham, make sure that you visit the spectacular 18th century country house and rolling parkland of Holkham Hall and sample some freshly-baked warm scones in the Courtyard Café. For a day out amongst independent shops and galleries, take a drive to the Georgian market town of Holt, 5 miles away, and finish with a bracing walk around Holt Country Park, a mile out of the town.
