  • “Very enjoyable stay at this lovely old cottage.”

    It does have a steep staircase but that is what is expected from a property of this age. The property was very clean and welcoming, well equipped. Paul the owner was very accessible and helpful when I got in touch with him.

Paul the owner was very accessible and helpful when I got in touch with him. Overall a great place to stay in a nice little village with plenty to do and see in that area of Norfolk. Would not hesitate to return.

The property

This is a lovely mid-terrace Victorian fisherman’s cottage, located on a private no-through lane and close to the sea front in the popular village of East Runton, near Cromer in North Norfolk.

This attractive cottage is ideal for friends and families alike, looking to explore this wonderful coastline from a great location.

Park up directly outside your cottage and step into the cosy sitting room which has a gas fire, ideal for relaxing with a movie after a day out exploring.

The kitchen is located at the back of the cottage, just beyond the dining room and with a door to the back garden.

There is also a family bathroom which is also located on the ground floor.

Upstairs are three lovely bedrooms, the double bedroom having a TV.

Outside this cosy cottage, relax in the enclosed garden, which is a real sun trap, enjoying a morning coffee while planning your day out.

After a busy time exploring the area, there is nothing better than dining alfresco using the barbecue.

The sea front offers cliff-edge views with wonderful coastal walks and the village itself is well-served with a convenience store, a Greek restaurant and two pubs, ideal for enjoying a meal or a drink after a day out.

The cottage is just a short walk from the wonderful sandy beach, which is popular for surfers and bathers and has seasonal lifeguards.

Just a short drive along the coast brings you to Cromer, which has a good variety of shops, cafés and restaurants to enjoy, and make sure you try the famous Cromer crabs, which are a must.

From this attractive cottage travel along the coastal road and you can take a boat trip to visit the seals or a train ride on a steam train at nearby Sheringham.

This is a lovely cottage, just along the coast from Cromer, offering excellent access to the beautiful Norfolk coast road linking wonderful villages.
