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.

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

Decor needs freshening up & spring clean. Overall nice quaint cottage in good location, well equipped. Rain head in shower doesnt work & needs removing as it is low & tall people will bump their head on it. Be mindful of low door frames upstairs & fairly steep stairs.

This cottage is in a great location, just a few minutes down to the quay. It has parking space but maybe difficult to navigate at times as the entry is quite sharp and cars park on the road makes turning difficult. It is also opposite the our Room which occasionally has late night music events. The house is well resourced and-everything works well.Read more It would suit 3 adults . It does look slightly dated but nevertheless it is comfortable . Hide

Quite a compact cottage. Onsite parking which is a bonus in Blakeney. Well stocked kitchen with dishwasher. New shower but no instructions, we could not figure out how to get the rainfall part to work! Plenty of hot water. Towels included but did not say that in the booking details. No outside seating which is a shame. House quite drafty downstairsRead more so not that warm at times despite heating. Could be made even nicer quite easily. Hide
