  • “Well appointed cottage and comfortable.”

    However two issues:- The tv system did not work but more importantly no response from the support number given despite two calls. Outside the condition of the property was poor with weeds growing along the front of the property spoiling the appearance . Could put some people off!

The property

Just metres from the sea, this bright and cheery, newly-renovated traditional fisherman’s cottage, nestles right behind John Lee’s crab stall in the very heart of Cromer Old Town, perfect for families who want to be as close to the beach as possible, couples who want to stretch their legs walking the Cromer clifftops, or individuals who want a cozy hideaway that is still in the middle of town life, this cottage has a rich history in the fishing town of Cromer.

Walking up the alleyway past the crab stall, you have a rare glimpse into the traditional fisherman’s trade and you can buy your crabs from the hand that hauled them that very morning.

Go through the front door straight into the inviting front room with a woodburning stove alongside a large sofa and comfortable chairs, where you can relax after a day out on the beach.

A brand-new kitchen and bathroom (downstairs) have everything you need, a good-sized shower, induction hob, dishwasher, with washing machine and dryer in the outdoor shed.

Upstairs are two bright and cheerful bedrooms, one for the children with two large single beds, and the master bedroom at the back, in an architect-designed extension overlooking the sun-drenched courtyard.

Outside there’s a table for outdoor dining, and chairs for reading under the outside lights on a balmy summers’ evening.

The street itself has something for everyone, a second-hand bookshop three doors down, an amusement arcade for the children, and the two best fish and chip shops in town within metres of the cottage, everyday food shopping is just round the corner at the Co-Op, open every day, Monday - Saturday open 7am till 10pm, Sunday is 10am -4pm.

This is a lovely, welcoming cottage, in a perfect location for the beach and surrounding North Norfolk countryside, the cottage is just metres away from the seafront, and when the tide is out there is a glorious wide sandy beach, patrolled by seasonal lifeguards, and popular with bathers and surfers, the town of Cromer has a wide variety of independent shops, cafés, and plentiful pubs, and restaurants, and you can get the famous Cromer crab right on your doorstep, if you are an early bird you may see the fishermen coming back with their haul of crabs and lobsters on the beach.

Norwich is just a gentle train ride away if you fancy a day out in the city, with its wonderful art gallery, bookshops and shopping, or you can explore the North Norfolk countryside by car, or with the CoastHopper bus, there is so much to do in the area such as boat trips to see the seals, train rides on a steam train, the Cromer lifeboat museum and the Tourist Information Centre in town will help you decide.

Cromer has a lovely, sandy Blue Flag beach where both children and adults can spend hours building sand castles, swimming, sunbathing or investigating the tidal pools in search of interesting sea creatures, which include young Cromer crabs. Cromer is proud of its beautiful Victorian pier, offering theatre shows, a museum and an RNLI lifeboat station, which is open to visitors and where you can learn about Cromer’s long lifeboat history. The town centre offers a variety of shops, cafés, restaurants, public houses and amusements, while local golf courses can be found at Cromer, Sheringham and West Runton. This part of North Norfolk offers many places of interest to visit, including the National Trust’s Sheringham Park and Felbrigg Hall, both enjoying wonderful woodland areas for walks and picnics, along with the Norfolk Shire Horse Centre, Amazona Zoo and the Hilltop Outdoor Adventure Centre.
