  • Cosy period cottage which was the former-bakery with original features such as areas of exposed brick and a fireplace with wood burner
  • Located in the coastal village of Blakeney, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Situated 2.5 miles from the pebble beach at Cley-next-the-Sea and set 1.5 miles away from a National Trust coastal nature reserve
Property code: NCC66

Enjoy leisurely walks along the river towards the coast, or perhaps join one of the seal-spotting boat trips from the village quay which head west to the nearby National Trust nature reserve. The village itself is well-appointed and offers an array of shops including a tempting deli offering a wide choice of fine foods and wine. To the west of village, some 9 miles away, the attractive town of Wells-next-the-Sea is a popular destination for holidaymakers, boasting a picturesque harbour as well as a beautiful sandy beach backed by a string of colourful beach huts.

Once a part of the village bakery, this cottage is a homely property ideal for a couple or a small family. The first room that guests come to on arrival is the kitchen/diner where guests will find a dining table seating four as well as an oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, and dishwasher. This room opens to the spacious lounge with its warming wood burner, comfortable seating, and TV/DVD. Cottage style stairs lead to the first floor where there are two cosy bedrooms: a restful double room and a peaceful single room which has a rocking chair in the window, allowing guests to relax with a book, or perhaps giving parents a comfortable spot to sit and read a bedtime story. The shower room can also be found on the first floor and offers a shower and WC

To the rear of the property guests will find a shingled courtyard with a picnic table and bench, providing guests with a tranquil space to enjoy al fresco drinks or dining. There is also parking available.

Great location . Harbour and mostly dog friendly eateries a short stroll away . Owners have taken note of previous reviews so clear and concise instructions re parking , log burner and shower placed in appropriate locations . We enjoyed our stay .

Great location, but accommodation needs some tlc to upgrade a little and the stove proved difficult despite us being used to using one. Well stocked kitchen with utensils and crockery etc but no washing machine was noticable given the weather we had (sadly) and would be a valuable addition. Lovely village with fabulous access to pubs, restaurants aRead morend shops. 5 stars for location! Hide

Good location, good value for money, carparking limited but manageable. Some adjoining property noise heard but not disruptive. Key safe wouldn't open easily several times, which was a bit worrying . Hoping to come back.

Tired, and needs a really good clean. Good shower, and comfortable bed. No decent outside space. The best part about this cottage was its location, as it was very close to the Quay.
