Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage very close to harbour and coastal path

Close Cottage is our own 'home from home' so it's extremely well equipped, yet totally clutter free for complete relaxation. Conveniently located almost opposite the harbour and across the road from the coastal path, it is ideal for sailing and walking. One minute's walk from the popular Jolly Sailors pub, and less than a mile from the shops and petrol station at Burnham Deepdale, the Cottage has been welcoming holiday guests for over 4 years now and all our visitors comment on how comfortable and brilliantly equipped we have made it. Plenty of off-road parking in the layby next to the house, there is ample room for a boat and trailer. The garden is completely safe and sunny, being walled with a patio and lots of fragrant 'Norfolk' lavender. The golf course and beach at Brancaster are a 5 minute drive away.

About Liz Curtis

We love north Norfolk and having holidayed here since we were children, we finally bought Close Cottage in 2007. We completely gutted and refurbished it into a cosy, clutter-free family bolt hole. We have 2 daughters and a Labrador. Peter is golf mad, so it's perfect for him; the girls love to sail and kayak and lie in bed watching the tide come in before walking across the road! We also bring our horses to ride on Holkham beach. We installed pet friendly hard floors throughout. The en suite eliminates holiday bathroom queues! Our cottage in Holme is more traditional in style, with softer furnishing (carpets) and no pets. Many visitors return year after year, they love the level of comfort and equipment provided which makes for a really relaxing holiday. We look forward to welcoming you.

Why Liz Curtis chose Kings Lynn & West Norfolk

Brancaster Staithe is a lovely and popular spot for holidays, being right on the coast with its own natural harbour and miles of sandy beaches also on the doorstep. The cottage is very close to the harbour and a simply wonderful local pub, The Jolly Sailors, which welcomes families and dogs. There is walking straight from our door on the coastal path, and also super views along the entire coast from the common.

It is private and cosy and near to everything you want, without being cut-off and difficult to get to (no bumpy driveways!)

We all enjoy our hobbies really easily, as the beach, sea and golf course are so close by.

The garden is a sunny walled patio with beds of fragrant Norfolk lavender : we all relax and switch off when we arrive.
