This wonderful, modern bungalow offers a family or three couples the perfect holiday home in the picturesque coastal village of Blakeney.

The scenic village of Blakeney with its beautiful quay just a short walk away, is the perfect base for exploring the truly stunning North Norfolk coastline. The village has a choice of places to eat and drink and is nestled in the beautiful Blakeney National Nature Reserve, which offers plenty of opportunities to spot local wildlife including a fantastic array of seabirds. You can even get out on the water from Morston (1 mile) taking a boat trip, to see a colony of grey seals on Blakeney Point. Cley (1 mile) is just a short drive or walk away and is home to the wonderful Cley Marshes Nature Reserve and just nine miles away is Wells-next-the-Sea, boasting a picturesque harbour as well as a beautiful sandy beach.

Enter this unique property into the lobby-come-hallway area and you instantly feel its unique design with its high ceilings, natural stone floor and all-round spacious feel. Head straight forward into the well-equipped kitchen with granite worktops and dining area, where the chef of the group will have everything they need to prepare a light snack or a hearty meal. With its electric "Rangemaster" oven and 5 ring induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, in no time at all they’ll be serving up delicious fare to loved ones at the dining table, which can seat up to six guests. There is a utility room off from the kitchen which has a combi washer/dryer and the room has a side door which is best to use if you have muddy boots or paws. The lounge area is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a comfortable sofa and four armchairs so fire up the wood burner and cosy up in front of the Smart TV which is in its own bespoke cabinet/bookshelf with plenty of books provided for you to enjoy too. Two of the spacious bedrooms have large wardrobes for any personal belongings. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and WC and there is a family bathroom for the remaining two bedrooms to share with a shower over the bath and WC, providing a perfect way to revitalise or soak those tired muscles after your coastal walks.

Access to the enclosed garden is through the back door or through the two side gates and here you have a patio area that drops down onto the lawn.

This bungalow is very well located just ten minutes walk from the quay, the shops and both pubs. It has ample parking for two cars which is a rarity in Blakeney. Although close to the main road it is set far enough back for us not to be troubled by traffic noise. It is well equipped and comfortable with an enclosed rear garden. We are regular visitRead moreors to Blakeney and will certainly check this property's availability in future. Hide

Lovely Bungalow. All you could,ask for. Only improvement would be some more mirrors in the bedrooms and a long mirror praps in the hall. All that being said we would definately re visit as our 4 days were perfect. Great location and Blakeney is a little treasure of village.

Lovely holiday home, spotlessly clean, spacious & comfortable. A lot of equipment available, crockery, glasses etc but some minor things such as cleaning products missing.

Samphire Retreat is just as described. It is a home from home and the owners have left us wanting to return, it is surprisingly spacious and well equipped, all living spaces and bedrooms are comfortable. It is ideally placed in Blackney only a few minutes from the Quay and the most stunning walks.

Great location, easy access to Blakney village and surrounding areas. This property allows you to have a great base for visiting Holkham Hall and Sandringham as well as the North Norfolk Coast. The cottage is quiet and in a lovely position when my son entered all he could say was wow!
