The property

Sheringham 3.2 miles.

A traditional flint cottage, just off the main road that leads to the coast at Sheringham, is Compass Cottage, a semi-detached property, ideal for a family or group of six wanting to enjoy a coastal break on the north Norfolk coast.

The property offers off-road parking for two cars, a small, enclosed front garden and a courtyard garden to the rear with furniture, where you can sit out and enjoy a morning coffee.

Enter the property at the rear into a small porchway, before heading into the cosy sitting room, with two leather sofas to relax onto, with the heat from the open fire warming the space, as you enjoy a family film on the TV.

The stylish kitchen/diner has a dining table with enough seating for the whole group to enjoy a meal together, created in the well-equipped kitchen, with a convenient butcher's block offering plenty of space to prepare ingredients.

The adjacent utility room offers a washing machine and leads to a handy cloakroom, while the first of three bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, with a spacious double bedroom offering ample storage space and a large en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower over, ideal for any guests with mobility issues.

The staircase can be found behind a door in the kitchen; head up the narrow stairs to find the remaining two bedrooms; a cosy, neutrally-styled twin and a double room, served by a family bathroom with a corner bath and shower over.

The civil parish of Bodham is tucked just inside the Norfolk Coast AONB and offers a pub and a village hall just a short walk away from the property, while being within easy reach of the North Norfolk Railway museum and the Muckleburgh Military Collection.

The coastal town of Sheringham is just over three miles away and is home to a host of shops, pubs and eateries, as well as the National Trust's Sheringham Park, offering 1000 acres of gardens, along with a museum, theatre, RNLI Sheringham Lifeboat Station and of course, its renowned sandy beach, frequently awarded a Blue Flag for its cleanliness.

From here, walkers can join the Norfolk Coast Path in either direction and discover spectacular coastal views along the way, with a journey west leading to Weybourne Beach and nature reserve, Cley and Salthouse Marshes, one of the country's most popular birdwatching sites, the National Trust's Blakeney National Nature Reserve and the magnificent stately home of Holkham Hall, while a venture east along the coast brings you to the town of Cromer, with its picturesque beach, pier & pavilion, museums, golf club, zoo and 15th century mansion of Felbrigg Hall.

The historic town of Holt, on the fringes of the AONB, is just four miles away from the property and is best discovered by taking the Holt Owl Trail, a walking trail that encompasses the town's key landmarks, as well as the pretty Holt Country Park, which offers 100 acres of woodland to explore.

Compass Cottage is an idyllic base to return to after a day exploring North Norfolk.

About the location


Cromer 4.8 miles.

Sheringham was originally a small fishing village on the North Norfolk coast, but with the arrival of the railways in 1887 it prospered and grew into a popular holiday town. Sheringham has been awarded ten consecutive European Blue Flags for cleanliness for its beach, along with awards from Britain in Bloom, Anglia in Bloom, and Best Coastal Resort. Enjoy walking along the East or West promenades, offering sea views with blue skies and red sunsets, a beach with a silver-pebbled shoreline leading to golden sands with rock pools and streams next to ochre cliffs, local fishing boats and a RLNI lifeboat station with museum. This attractive traditional seaside town also has the 'Little Theatre', open all year round, seaside gardens with seating, a model boating lake, independent shops, tea rooms, steam railway, golfing, amusement arcades, and fish & chip shops selling locally-caught fish.
