  • "The property faces the Cley marshes with hides, is near to the beach and the modern nature RSBP nature reserve."

    We didn’t realise the advantages of such a good location. The cottage itself is great with a secret back staircase our grandchildren found exciting. Nearness to Blakeney and Holt also an advantage. Owner very helpful indeed. Would strongly recommend property.

  • "The cottage was as described, but even lovelier and cosier than we expected."

    The owner was very helpful and responsive to a problem which cropped up during our stay. We would definitely recommend Beach Cottage to anyone wanting to stay in North Norfolk.

  • "Wonderful situation directly facing the marshes, so easy to step out of the door and watch the winter geese and the marsh harriers."

    The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were warned by the owner that the cottage was quirky and the rooms small but we found this just added to it’s charm and hope to return there another time.

  • "Really enjoyed my stay."

    Lovely quirky cottage. Cosy with log fire. Great situation as the wife was working from the cottage. As I’d booked the cottage for my retirement holiday. Great location for the local villages and I do bird watching so I was in my element. Been many a year since I visited Norfolk but now it’s on my list again for next year. Just a massive Thankyou to Jane and all involved with making my holiday something to remember Len

  • "Had a lovely week in this quirky little cottage with all the necessary facilities needed."

    In a good location to explore the north of Norfolk and access costal path. Many nice pubs and restaurants nearby. The only disadvantage for us was all of the beds were hard which is why we rated comfort lower.

  • "The location was excellent, but the house needs a very thorough clean."

    Even without the COVID worries we expect and have always had clean properties in the many years we have used Sykes. There is no splash backs therefore all walls behind sinks are dirty. This property has such a USP, the garden is lovely to sit in and so peaceful but …..we still really enjoyed our holiday.

  • "Beach cottage is in a fantastic location - both within its relation to Cley Beach and within the North Norfolk area."

    The cottage itself was clean and well equipped. However it should be noted that this cottage is simply not suitable for tall people. At 6'6" my husband was completely unable to stand up anywhere in the kitchen and spent the entire week having to crick his head sideways to a ridiculously uncomfortable degree every time he was in there. Being tall he is used to ducking under doorways but they are so exceptionally low he has a number of bruises from the number of times he hit his head. While the cottage is lovely, we very strongly feel that the caveat of it not being suitable for tall people must be added to the description - as unfortunately this rather took the shine off a lovely week away.

  • "Friendly family welcome to us after overnight travel."

    A very generous welcome hamper. Cosy comfort throughout the house. Our first time in South Wales - enjoyed our week so much we've already booked for summer 2022

  • "Very pleasant cottage in a lovely location."

    Not disappointed. Delightful garden. Owner was very helpful and appreciated her call before our holiday. Basic essentials on arrival such as tea/coffee were lacking. Two main beds were not comfortable and noisy when moving at night....disturbing for partners.

    It was nice and relaxing, really close to the sea. Any problems the owner Jane was most helpful and sorted them out straight away. Marie

  • "The change from our original booking for June to October in response to the pandemic was made possible by the owner's active and extremely helpful intervention in solving the agents' website difficulties in dealing with this."

    The cottage was delightful and the position perfect. The only downside was the parking, as many visitors to Cley regard the track in front of the cottage as a general free-for-all, as it is, which means difficulties for returning after any excursions even for local shopping trips. This was in October, the position in higher season must be horrendous.l

  • "Beach cottage is a characterful cottage that is just outside Cley next the sea."

    There’s plenty of room for 4 adults (2 double beds) and 4 children (2 bunk beds) across 4 bedrooms however tall people will have to learn quickly to “duck or grouse”! The back garden is lovely and the front If the cottage faces the sea 1km away down a quiet lane that leads across the marshes to a pebbly section of the beach. Although the pub in Cley is currently closed (Summer 2020) there are several great pubs within easy driving distance - specially recommend the Dun Cow in Salthouse 5 minutes away.

The property

Salthouse 0.6 miles.

Overlooking the Cley Marshes Nature Bird Reserve on the Norfolk coast, on the outskirts of Cley-next-the-Sea is this terraced cottage, once two fisherman's cottages, now made into one delightful holiday home perfect for hosting an active family holiday.

Take in the vast views of the marshes before turning round and heading inside the property, entering the compact open-plan sitting and dining room after taking off coats and boots in the porch, a welcome sight of a plush sofa and a woodburning stove set within a lovely wood fireplace awaits you in this rustic room with exposed wooden beams in the walls showing the property’s age.

Shooting off from this room is the country kitchen, which although compact it holds all you need to cater for the group as well as those fabulous extras like a dishwasher and a washing machine to make your stay even better, with views out over the marshes from this room.

From the lounge move into a delightful snug room where you have a small desk and some plush chairs, with books lined up on a bookcase which has been tucked into the fireplace you can cosy up in this room on a rainy day and get lost in a book.

Steep winding wooden stairs lead up to a twin room.

When it’s time to catch some rest, head up the winding staircase to the bedrooms, firstly coming to the bunk room holding two 2’6” bunks, then leading from here into the double room, making a perfect setup for a family, all decorated in bright white and light colours creating a calming and relaxing ambiance.

Next door is the master double room holding slightly more space and featuring beautiful antique furniture and storage as well as built-in wardrobes.

Access the second bunk room from the master bedroom, stepping under the wooden beams and entering to find the two bunks, but thankfully you can also access this room from the wooden staircase from the snug.

Both floors benefit from a shower room with quality fittings and walk-in showers along with a basin and a WC.

Head out of the stable doors from the kitchen into the garden and enjoy the outdoors on a sunny day in this lovely landscaped garden, with a scented garden boasting rosemary, lavender, sage and thyme, sit at the seating on the raised patio and take in the rays, while the little ones can enjoy a kick-about on the patch of astro-turf.

Pull on your walking boots and delight in exploring this amazing area, walk along the pebble and shingle beaches, climb up Salthouse Heath for the incredibly stunning views, or visit one of the many surrounding nature reserves to see animals in their natural habitat.

For those who don't have access to a car, outside of the cottage is a bus stop where the buses run regularly all the way along the coast.

Don't miss the chance to catch a boat from Blakeney to see the huge seal colonies where 2000 seal pups are born annually, it's a magnificent sight.

Beach Cottage will be a beautiful property to enjoy with your loved ones in this unique area of Norfolk.

Please note property can sleep maximum of 6 Adults and 2 Children
