Mulberry Cottage shares its location with its other half Samphire Cottage and a detached cottage Hawthorns both sleeping 8 so if you are looking for accommodation for up to 16 or 24 people, this may be possible by booking all three properties.

Sleeps 8, Central heating included in price, close proximity to marshes,

The cottage is in a quiet rural location accessed by a private road. The pretty flint village of Stiffkey is a 10mins walk away or 2 mins drive. It has a charming family friendly village pub (freehouse) which serves good local beer (Woodfordes) and good food. There is also a village shop / cafe.

There are good beaches at Wells and Holkham but you will be charged for parking. There are several National Trust properties in the area such as Felbrigg Hall which is well worth a look and walk about its grounds. The Queen's country pile at Sandringham is nearby. Palladium style Holkham Hall is very close. Pensthorpe where Spring Watch was filmed is near Fakenham and is open to the public. There are seals (common & grey) at Blakeney Point that you can see from one of the boatman working out of Morston or Blakeney

Lets run from Saturday to Saturday.

The Stiffkey marshes are owned by the National Trust, access to it and the wider saltings (sand flats) is free. There is about 20,000 acres of marsh & foreshore running from Holkam in the West to Blakeney Point in the East. After that the coastline is stony or sandy. This is salt marsh and is washed twice daily by the sea. The marshes are intersected with creeks. At low tide most of these are seldom more than 3 or 4 feet deep in places and offer a lot of fun to all ages to swim & play in. They are very varied with the part to the West comprising of mud and deep creeks and the part nearest the cottage becoming more sandy and shalower every year. 'Crabbing' is a popular pastime with children, you can buy crab lines in many shops in Wells or round about, just put a piece of bacon fat (cooked or raw) in the net and drop in the creek and see if you can catch small unedible green crabs, which are returned unharmed afterwards. The marshes are tidel and so one needs to be aware of it, there is a tide clock in the kitchen giving a reasonably accurate indication of the state of the tide.

"Perfect in every way"

Just home from a short break at Mulberry Cottage. What a find. The cottage has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The location is amazing with long walks across the marshes onto the sands but still never found the sea!! Did come across the seals basking on a couple of occasions though. Short walk to the village and the local pub. Very peaceful spot and were lucky enough to see a barn owl swoop past us as we relaxed on the covered verandah one evening. Cottage has been very nicely renovated with a lot of attention to detail and everything has been thought of. Lots to do in the local area and on visits to the nearby seaside villages we did find the sea!! Would highly recommend and can't wait to return.
