  • Located in idyllic Burnham Deepdale, a timeless village on the Norfolk Coast Path on the edge of the Scolt Head Island National Nature Reserve
  • Adjacent to Brancaster, with its epic sweep of pristine sand and unspoilt dunes
  • A short ferry ride from the stark beauty of Scolt Head Island – a bird lover’s paradise (operational during summer months only)
Property code: KT045

On the edge of the Scolt Head Island National Nature Reserve you will find this beautifully furnished cottage offering distant sea views and access to the pubs, shops and serenely beautiful salt marshes of Burnham Deepdale.

This gem of a property may be in a quiet North Norfolk village, but that doesn’t mean that there’s little to do in Burnham Deepdale. A gallery, café and boutique shops create a classy ambience, with a bike hire outlet offering the chance to get out and explore this gorgeous region further. Within walking distance is the adjacent village of Brancaster Staithe – its two pubs are renowned for their superb food and ales – or pick up the Norfolk Coastal Path to spend a day on Brancaster beach. During Summer months departing from Burnham Overy Staithe, a short distance from the property is a ferry to Scolt Head Island, an offshore sand barrier offering beach, dunes, terrific birdlife – including a world-renowned tern population – and a wonderful sense of seclusion.

You enter the property from the rear garden into the oak-floored hallway, from where you can access the bright, double-aspect lounge. Sea grass flooring (under-heated, of course) and a wood burner ensure warmth even on the coldest of evenings, while a large sofa and chairs are deep enough to sink into after a day’s sightseeing. The large kitchen/diner really is something – stone flooring, a conservatory-style dining area overlooking the garden and a table seating up to six make this a naturally convivial space. Kitchen facilities include an electric double oven, hob, large fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher, while a utility room off the kitchen is home to washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a separate WC on the ground floor. The second-floor accommodation includes three beautifully furnished bedrooms: one master king-size with en-suite shower room and WC and another king-size both with distant sea views and a spacious twin. The bathroom contains a bath with overhead shower, hand basin and WC.

Outside space comprises a small border garden at the front, while the rear garden – mainly lawn and a paved patio – is fully enclosed by a wall. A BBQ offers ample opportunity for dining alfresco. There is off-road parking for two cars.

  • 3 bedrooms - 2 king size and 1 twin

We found Compass Cottage to be a comfortable, well-equipped property, in a good location to visit this part of Norfolk. There is a well-stocked supermarket and petrol station, together with a good cafe / restaurant within only a few minutes' walk, which we found to be very handy. Nice walks can also be found close to the cottage.
