  • 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

A traditional cottage, once a part of the village bakery, offering comfortable accommodation for three guests situated in the harbour village of Blakeney on the River Glaven in North Norfolk.

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.

Lovely little cottage, was very clean and well equipped. Felt homely. Unfortunately we had to cut the holiday short for personal reasons but we loved what we saw of the area, I was so disappointed that we had to miss the boat trip out to see the seals. Planning to book the cottage again for next year so we can explore the area.

Lovely cottage in a lovely village. . Stayed for 3 nights, perfect for dog walks on the beach and visiting local area. Holkham beach and estate are not to be missed. Dog friendly cottage with 3 beds, with everything you need.

Excellent location within Blakeney and Blakeney is an excellent village location for the surrounding areas. Took advantage of the Coast Hopper buses to visit Cromer, Wells-next-to Sea. The cottage was perfectly adequate for my 5 night visit

Fantastic location - lovely local pubs, restaurants and beautiful walks. Take your own pillows because the ones in the cottage are terrible. If you intend to self cater take your own cookware as the cottage cookware is old and tatty, other than this youll have a lovely relaxing break.

Cottage in need of refurbishment had old fusty smell in areas. Was well equipped in the kitchen. Was clean but didn't feel homely. If updated could be lovely and still in keeping with the age of the property. Difficult access with car through narrow side lane I'm glad I wasn't manoeuvring car. Courtyard at the back isn't private and we couldn't parRead morek where it suggested as other cars there so had to park right at the back door. Beautiful village but expensive to eat out in pubs there. Hide

Turnstones is a very attractive cottage with a lot of character. It is light and spacious, well-appointed and beautifully decorated. The location is perfect on one of the main streets in Blakeney close to shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. We enjoyed an excellent meal at Wiveton Bell which is only 10 mins drive away. There are pleasant walks from Read morethe cottage down to the harbour and coastal paths and we drove to Cley for a walk to the sea and around the village. We saw lots of migrating birds. Hide
