Overview

About the property

〰️ LOVELY STYLE AND QUALITY IN A GREAT LOCATION 〰️

4★ GOLD AWARD - Visit England

Writers Cottage is a house that forms part of Clement Scott Mews which is just in front of Cromer Country Club. The Cottage has been completely refurbished to a high standard. Wood throughout gives it a cosy feel, but at the same time any morning sun floods into the kitchen and dining area, and any evening sun floods into the lounge area giving it a light and airy feel. The bedroom styling was inspired by a visit to Raffles Hotel in Paris.

HISTORY

Writers Cottage is built on the stage area of the former Royal Links Pavilion where rock bands such as The Who, Queen and David Bowie performed.

The Royal Links Hotel was renowned for having eminent guests such as the Prince of Wales, Winston Churchill, Clement Scott - who wrote for the Daily Telegraph and named the area Poppyland, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - who was inspired to write The Hound Of The Baskervilles whilst a guest there.

Further historical information is supplied at Writers Cottage.

Accommodation and location all we could wish for and more.

  • 5 of 5

Writer's Cottage is a beautiful and immaculate home in a lovely quiet setting. Extremely well equipped. Jacquie's attention to detail and her special welcome treats make you feel like a pampered guest. The location is superb, so close to the cliffs and only a short walk into Cromer. The North Norfolk coast is enchanting to explore and our last evening was highlighted by a glorious sunset over Cromer Pier. Thank you Jacquie for making or stay so special. We will be back. Marion, Lucy & David

Just a beautiful place to stay, everything perfectly clean, cookware, crockery, linen and furniture was first class. Quiet, with parking, close to Cromer. Jackie gave unbelieveable service. Even purchased a jar of Vegimite for us Aussies. Thanks so very much for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Very tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Ideally situated for Cromer and the coast. Lovely coastal walks. Cottage provided information for walks/dining/days out etc. Jacqui also provided some very welcome extras (chocs, cake, wine, strawberries and more.....) Everything you need for an extremely comfortable stay. Thank you.

Welcoming stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a beautifully appointed rental. My mother has very high standards and even she was impressed by the finish. The owner had thought of every comfort even going so far as to provide slippers and a bathrobe! Walking into the kitchen we were faced with a plate of Norfolk fruit cake and a bowl of strawberries. The fridge held a bottle of proseco, milk & orange juice. A box of hand made chocolates was the finishing touch. I would really advise anyone to stop here. There was lots of information on the area. Slept like a baby. Location was also really great. Wish we could have stopped longer. Thanks for everything. X
