The cottage is one of a row of five traditional flint built cottages with red pantiled roofs set close to the centre of Blakeney, the well known North Norfolk coastal village which is an ideal base for bird watching on the salt marshes or taking bracing walks along the coastal paths.

There are lovely sandy beaches at nearby Wells, Holkham and Burnham Overy Staithe.

The cottage is 250 years old and is conveniently situated close to the main general store of the village with Blakeney's picturesque quay a mere 2 minutes walk away just beyond the friendly Kings Arms pub where fine local ales and good food are served.

Further details indoors

The cottage sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with 2 singles. Downstairs there is a living room room, kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom has been fully refitted in 2008 to include a shower over the bath and heated towel rail. The kitchen was completely refitted in 2011. The cottage is a listed building and so retains many of its original attractive features such as its curved wooden staircase and range in the living room. It should be noted that the wooden curved staircase is quite steep, in keeping with a cottage of this age. People who are less mobile may find the stairs difficult.

Further details outdoors

There is a south facing patio area immediately in front of the cottage with a table and seating for guests to use, together with a small barbecue. Immediately beyond this is a large enclosed shared garden, mostly laid to lawn. There is a parking space for one car in a shared car park to one side of the cottages. Further parking is available nearby at the village hall, if required.

The patio to the front of the house was relaid and extended in the autumn of 2009 and guests should note that there is now a small step onto this area. We would ask guests to take particular note of this if they are arriving after dark.

The East Anglia region

People have long been attracted to the North Norfolk coast by its special character, landscape and wildlife. The scenic richness and variety of much of the coast and hinterland is acknowledged by its designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


Blakeney with its picturesque harbour is an ancient seaport, now separated from the sea by salt marshes. It is an ideal centre from which to explore the unspoilt beauty of the North Norfolk coast.

Blakeney is famous as a wild-fowl centre, there is plenty of bird life to be seen on the marshes and nature reserves of Blakeney Point, over 1000 acres of which belong to the National Trust.

Blakeney and the nearby harbours of Morston, Brancaster and Overy Staithe are ideal for the yachting enthusiast. "Crabbing" off the Quay at Blakeney is a favourite pastime with children and adults alike. There are regular boat trips to Blakeney Point from Morston to see the large seal colony.

Blakeney is within easy reach of a choice of golf courses and good uncrowded beaches can be found at Holkham, Brancaster, Hunstanton, Sheringham and Cromer, with its famous pier. Nearby places of interest include Sandringham House, Blickling Hall, Holkham Hall and Pottery, the Shell Museum at Glandford, Langham Glass where glass blowing can be watched and the renowned Thursford collection of fairground carousels, steam engines and mechanical organs.

Inland a little, between Kelling and Salthouse there is a very attractive heathland area, and the marshland between Salthouse and Cley-next-the-sea (with its easily recognisable windmill) needs no introduction to bird watchers.

"Cute cottage"

This is a cute little cottage. It is within the village centre and within staggering distance of the excellent King's Arms pub where we partook of good food and superb beer. Next door is the Spar village store/post office which sells just about everything you could need and has a free cashpoint. The cottage itself was smallish but well presented with a comfortable lounge and good kitchen and bathroom and two sizeable and comfortable bedrooms upstairs. The stairs were "appropriate" to the age, style and character of the cottage ie steep, narrow and winding but OK once you acclimatise to them. It provided a convenient and very agreeable base for touring around North Norfolk and equally for staying and using the facilities, walks and countryside around Blakeney. The vehicle access is tight!! Overall the cottage lived up to our expectations and we would go again.
