A stylish blend of contemporary details and characterful period features, this Grade II listed 16th century property has been converted from an historic inn to create a chic holiday retreat.

Situated in the village of Blakeney in North Norfolk, this property sits amongst pretty cottages and historic buildings such as the 15th century guildhall. A range of small shops and tearooms add to the character of the village and make it a pleasant place to stroll around and take in the peaceful surroundings. 1.5 miles outside the village, the Blakeney National Nature Reserve is home to a colony of seals which visitors can spot from one of the boat trips on offer. For a leisurely day at the beach, head west to the wide sands of Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham Bay, both within a 10-mile drive of the cottage.

From Blakeney’s high street guests step inside the front door of this pretty cottage to the hallway and into the stylish lounge with its inviting seating, warming wood burner, cosy rug, TV, and plantation shutters. Next to the lounge the kitchen/diner has a characterful feel to it, with its contrasting slate grey units and bright orange splashbacks. In the centre of the room a large dining table made from reclaimed wood seats six guests around which there is a range of kitchen equipment including an oven, hob, microwave, washing machine, and tumble dryer. A second wood burner keeps the room lovely and warm, no matter what the time of year. Upstairs, the bedrooms, a twin, and a king-size room, both boast solid oak beds and bedside units made from reclaimed wood, with the mirrors crafted from driftwood. The bathroom, meanwhile, is a sanctuary-like space with a free-standing bath, a separate sower cubicle, and a WC. Please note that due to the age and style of the property there are some areas with low head-height.

To the side of the property a patio garden offers an enclosed private space to enjoy leisurely al fresco meals or drinks. The garden furniture has been carefully chosen with a handmade table and two wooden rockers, next to which there is a BBQ. Off-road parking is available alongside the cottage and is shared with the neighbouring two properties. There are two spaces available which can be used on a first-come basis.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.
