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 quirky 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. There’s a picnic style bench for you to sit at and enjoy some drinks of an evening or a spot of al fresco dining. There is off private road parking for up to two cars to the front of the property.

The property is ideal for two couples, and the location is perfect for a tranquil or active walking holiday. The garden is enclosed and the interior is suitably designed for anyone bringing dogs. Blakeney is a lovely village with its own quay and a lot of history and lovely architecture. It has a number of good drinking and eating pubs and hotels, Read moreand is ideally placed for walking along the coast to other villages. The local shop is adequately stocked and in easy walk from the property. Hide

We had a great time. Good size enclosed garden for the dogs. Beds really comfy and plenty of room to accommodate five adults and two dogs. Great location with some lovely walks. Good choice of restaurants/pubs although not all dog friendly. Will definitely be returning.

Lovely characterful modern house with lots of space and well appointed kitchen. Great location on the edge of Blakeney so easy to walk to shops and pubs, plus lots of places to explore nearby. The house was comfy and warm, with a very secure garden for dogs.

We had a wonderful holiday at Samphire Retreat over Christmas. It's a beautiful house with 3 double bedrooms (with very comfortable mattresses) and the lounge really does have the 'wow' factor, particularly when the log burner is going strong! The kitchen was very well equipped and the enclosed garden was great for 2 dogs with space for them to runRead more around. It's a short walk to the local deli, bakery and a couple of pubs/restaurants too. Hide

This is a beautiful bungalow. It is spacious and generally well equipped although, oddly, there are no hangers. It is ideally suited to explore this gorgeous part of Norfolk. There is much to recommend this holiday home.

Lovely place to stay, very well equipped kitchen and in a good location. Good enclosed garden for the dog, with excellent walks right from the house. Blakeney is lovely but you seem to need to book evening meals in local restaurants more than a day in advance.

Lovely clean, spacious, well equipped (bring clothes hangers) dog friendly bungalow in charming village. 3 double beds. Walking distance from the quay provided you are able bodied; elderly or infirm will need to drive down the narrow village lane to National Trust car park at the waters edge which can be busy in summer or at high tide. Crabbing on Read morethe quay very popular as are seal trips from Morston. Good for walks and birdwatching. No beach in Blakeney but 20min drive from super Wells beach. Hide
