Notre maison

My cottage is in a central location, less than one minute’s walk to the beach, in Sheringham, a traditional seaside fishing town, with popular Saturday market. Sheringham is situated on the north Norfolk coast, an area designated as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The former fisherman’s cottage of flint and brick construction was built in 1893 and has been in my family for over 100 years. It has been lovingly restored and the bedroom has the original Victorian fireplace, and the kitchen retains the original Belfast sink. In keeping with a property of this age the stairs are steep which any infirm or elderly persons should be made aware of. Please note all the floors downstairs now have new wooden or laminate flooring (replacing the carpets).

Localisation

Quartier

Sheringham is a popular destination for holidaymakers with its safe sandy beaches, market day, independent shops, tea rooms, museum, galleries, restaurants, theatre and local history. Every summer we have a Carnival, and in September our incredibly popular 1940’s weekend takes place. www.experiencesheringham.com
This attractive town has many traditional flint buildings and is also well known for its steam trains which run on the North Norfolk Railway. www.nnrailway.co.uk
(You can take a trip as far as the Georgian town of Holt www.tournorfolk.co.uk with its specialist shops, passing the windmill at Cley.) www.cleywindmill.co.uk
Traditional pubs are nearby the cottage with outside seating so you can enjoy the sea view. The nearest pub to the cottage was awarded Pub of the Year for Norwich and Norfolk 2011 by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). Michelin star dining from chef Galton Blackiston at Morston Hall is a few miles away or local fish and chips, crab/lobster if you prefer.

Around the corner from the cottage is bike hire, and the nearby Library has free internet access and WiFi. Free WiFi is also available at two nearby pubs (any excuse!). Sea fishing, cliff top golf course, town centre putting green, Splash leisure centre (with pool, and wave machine) all available here. Maze and gardens at www.priorymazegardens.co.uk Ideal area for walking and cycling. North Norfolk Coastal Path/Peddars Way 93 mile footpath from Thetford to Cromer Pier. Horse riding 3 miles. You will be neither bored nor hungry in Sheringham!
