Hawthorns is a characterful, spacious detached cottage set in a fabulous rural location between the village of Stiffkey and the National Trust saltings in a designated area of natural beauty. On the North Norfolk coast, between Blakeney and Wells-next-the Sea, the cottage provides very comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms, and is a wonderful home from home for families holidaying together or for couples who are looking for a quiet retreat.
Furnished and decorated in a contemporary style, the cottage is flooded with natural light. It has views of open fields towards Blakeney, the garden and tantalising glimpses of the sea through the oak trees that separate the land from the saltings. It is set within its own large private garden with drive and ample parking for several cars. A side gate leads out the back of the garden onto the small path that runs between the village and the coast so the salt marshes, sands and sea beyond are literally a minute's walk away. Up to 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome, provided that the owners adhere to some sensible rules.
The pretty flint village of Stiffkey is only a 10 minute walk away, giving easy access to the local pub (The Red Lion) and the very useful Stiffkey Stores which sells freshly baked cakes and coffee in addition to groceries and fresh bread. The cottage is in an ideal location to access a range of activities and explore this beautiful unspoilt area of Norfolk.
This part of Norfolk is a real gem, characterised by expansive blue skies and is perfect for walking, cycling, playing golf, sailing, playing on the beaches and bird watching. For the less energetic, there are pretty villages and Georgian towns to explore, art galleries, country houses and parkland, not to mention a multitude of great pubs and restaurants.
The cottage can be booked either by the week (our start day is a Friday), long weekend (Friday to Monday) or a short mid-week break (Monday to Friday). If this doesn't suit you, then please ask as there can be some flexibility out of peak season. If you are a couple looking for a quiet romantic retreat, then please ask about our 'couples' rate available out of the peak season.
