This ’pretty in pink’ cottage is perfect any time of the year, with a cosy wood burner for cooler days and a barbecue for al fresco summer dining.
Just a 5-minute drive from the bustling, picturesque coastal town of Wells-next-the-Sea, and yet tucked away in a rural enclave offering views across open countryside. Pink Cottage is semi-detached and offers everything you need for a relaxing coastal break, and has a large enclosed garden to the rear with a barbecue, and a sitting-out area that’s perfect for summer guests. The living room has a wood burner that will provide cosy evenings for winter visitors, making Pink Cottage a perfect year round retreat. One of a small group of cottages once belonging to the Holkham Estate, the cottages must remain pink to maintain their heritage and they provide a pretty burst of colour to this picturesque area.
Wells-next-the-Sea is a great gateway to the beautiful North Norfolk coast, with its much photographed quay and quaint narrow gauge railway that takes you to the wide sandy beach.
Travel east or west from here and you will find a coastline line littered with pretty villages, with sandy and shingle beaches, marshes and quays, all of which make great terrain for sunbathing, swimming, walking, cycling, watersports and bird watching.
With nearby access to the Peddars Way and north Norfolk coastal path amongst many other walking trails, the area is great for walkers and for guests bringing their dogs. For those interested in the local wildlife, the well known Norfolk Wildlife Trust Cley Marshes nature reserve, RSPB Titchwell Marshes reserve and Pensthorpe Natural Park are all under 12 miles from the cottage and boat trips to view the colonies of seals are available from nearby Blakeney and Morston. The Sealife Sanctuary at Hunstanton, and the Dinosaur Adventure Park at Lenwade are also easily accessible.
You will also find many National Trust properties and stately homes such as the Holkham Estate, Sandringham and Blickling Hall. This perfect bolt hole is under 2 miles away from the picturesque village of Walsingham, with shops including an award winning farm shop and deli, which specialises in Norfolk produce, along with pubs, a café, restaurant, shrine, abbey and priory ruins. A short drive could also take you to either the lovely Georgian village of Burnham Market or to the market town of Holt, both boasting an array of specialist independent shops, galleries, antique shops, pubs and restaurants. In fact, there is so much to see and do here all year round you will need to return just to fit it all in. And, having fallen in love with Pink Cottage, you’ll be back there too. Beach 3½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ mile
