About the property

Single storey cottage, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6. Fabulous rural views.

This freshly renovated 3 bedroom cottage, The Seashells, all on one level, is situated only minutes away from the coastal path in a lovely, quiet spot in Brancaster Staithe, just 5 minutes drive from Burnham Market. Within easy walking distance to the famous White Horse and charming Deepdale shops. Further along the coastal road is the Jolly Sailors pub and Brancaster Staithe harbour for all the boating fun. For walkers and bird watching Titchwell RSPB Reserve is only 5 minutes drive away.

The clean, contemporary kitchen has all new integrated appliances; dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, large fridge with freezer box, induction hob and electric oven.

The open plan layout has a 6 place, oak dining table with Eames-style dining chairs, a comfy leather sofa and armchair to relax in. You can enjoy the new technology; freeview flat screen SMART TV, i-pod docking station/radio and DVD player, or settle for the good old fashioned games and jigsaw puzzles. For cooler nights there is a cosy wood-burning stove with safety fireguard.

The open plan living goes through into the conservatory, with relaxing chairs and snuggley sheepskin rugs, to overlook the marvellous view of open fields and Barrow Common.

The hall with feature mirror and handy coat cupboard leads to the bedrooms.

The main bedroom with super-comfy king-size bed and luxury feather duvet has bedside tables and lamps, a cute dressing table and fitted wardrobes with shelves. You'll wake-up to wonderful views across open fields and the rolling hills of Barrow Common. The ensuite has a large walk-in shower with drencher head and adjustable hose, basin, WC and heated towel rail.

The second bedroom overlooks the quiet, private front garden and has twin beds, feather duvets, side table and lamp, oak chest of drawers and a built-in wardrobe.

Bedroom 3, the bunk room, has a stunning picture window over-looking the garden and field, built in cupboards, black-out blinds and side-bed lights. There are also some children's toy and books. The bunk beds have a truckle and mattress under it, to be used by younger children if the top bunk is a bit too high and scary! It is a room for 2 children only.

The family bathroom has a good size bath, drencher shower and adjustable hose, basin with granite top, WC and heated towel rail.

There is a travel cot and high chair available on request.

Outside the enclosed rear garden (to contain children) has been recently landscaped, is south facing and looks directly onto rolling fields and the common; a fabulous, relaxing spot. The patio area has new garden furniture to seat 6, parasol and gas barbeque for those sunny days. There is an additional suntrap deck with rattan furniture, positioned well to take in the views.

The surprise external den has a much loved table football, great fun for all. There is also a selection of games, books and puzzles if you prefer something less energetic!

The Seashells is located in a quiet lane off the coastal road. It has a private front lawned area and space for 2 cars. It is a pet free holiday home.

About The Owner

I have been coming to this lovely part of Norfolk for over 30 years. We live not far away in Cambridge, and I now bring my children here to enjoy the beaches, sailing and all that this area has to offer. Our holiday home, The Seashells, is in a lovely peaceful and picturesque spot, and we have made it a comfortable home-from-home. We hope you enjoy it too!

Lovely warm light and spacious property. Well equipped, maintained and tastefully furnished

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage renovated equipped and furnished to a high standard. There was plenty of space for us, our son and daughter in law and 7 month old granddaughter.

It is in a very quiet road just off the Main Street with lovely views at the back of open fields and trees.

There are good local shops and pubs and you can walk to the local salt marshes.

The owner was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed.

I would definitely book this cottage again.

A wonderful house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Seashells was a real home from home. It was clean, comfortable and pretty well equipped with the things we like, such as wifi, a dishwasher, comfy beds, a shower that works well - even the small things like enough crockery & utensils, big towels and blackout blinds.

You can tell the owners have put a lot of thought into making their house the best they can.

We all enjoyed the table football and lovely south facing garden.

Facilities nearby, where we had lots of fun, include a seal trip, Holkham Hall, Hunstanton and Titchmarsh RSPB Reserve

Lovely relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 great days here during the February half term and had beautiful weather. The Coastal path which is very close by was great for jogging and evening walks. Had some fantastic lunches at The Jolly Sailor. Lots of fun on the beaches. The mini supermarket around the corner was handy. The property is stylish, comfortable and very well equipped. There are beautiful views to the rear. The kids loved the enormous TV, the wifi and the trendy chairs. I loved the light, modern rooms, duvets, the luxurious bathrooms and the generally relaxing feel to the place. Although compact, it is spacious and the layout of the rooms works really well for families. Everything in the house was well thought out, spotlessly clean and maintained to a very high standard. We would love to go back in the Summer when more places such as Holkam Hall will be open.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the seashells for a post-Christmas New Year break. The owner Karen was friendly and the booking process and entry to the property was very straightforward. As we know North Norfolk well we didn’t need too much help in the way of where to go and what to do but the offer was there nonetheless. We were provided with a very helpful but clear and concise manual to help us make the most of our stay.

We chose to stay at the property because it looked nice and newly renovated and we were not disappointed at all! The owners have recently refurbished the whole place and have done so very tastefully, but they have also put so much thought into all the small details that matter for a holiday rental and this really does set it apart from other places in our opinion. All the fixtures and fittings are of high quality and modern, everything worked, and the bed was so comfy that we found it hard to get up in the mornings to go out for a walk! We were a couple staying without children but the house is well equipped should you have little ones; the garden is also very child friendly and even has a games room!

The house is set on a cul-de-sac just off the main coast road. It is in an ideal location as it is very quiet and has wonderful views over the countryside, yet you are only a few minutes’ walk from the fabulous White horse pub (amazing oysters), the Deepdale market shopping area (with Nisa local) and fantastic café. This was the first time we have stayed at Brancaster Staithe and thought it was perfect as you can easily reach all parts of the north Norfolk coast, not too far to drive to Tesco’s at Hunstanton for supplies and you can even walk all the way to wells via Holkham, have fish and chips and a pint and get the bus back (a great day out!). Burnham market is also just a couple of minutes’ drive and has lots of nice food shops.

We had a fantastic break and hope to return again, at a time of year that we can also enjoy the lovely outside space too! Thank you Karen.
