About Hazel Neal

In 2001 my husband (an experienced house renovator) and I were looking for a small holiday home in North Norfolk, somewhere fairly rural, when one Sunday lunch we happened upon a photo of Jasmine Cottage for sale in a local estate agent in Hunstanton. I fell in love with this falling down, rambling cottage on first sight and although it went to sealed bids we won and bought the house. I was 6 months pregnant, and we did not realise how convenient living in a town centre cottage is compared to our pre-children rural ideal.

For the next 3 years we lived between our homes in Leicester and Hunstanton, working and slowly renovating Jasmine Cottage with a baby - then toddler, then another baby. The cottage was completely renovated, being stripped back entirely to its shell and re furbished whilst keeping as many of its traditional features as possible.

Although is was hard work, we have many lovely memories of our two boys as babies and toddlers on Hunstanton beaches - digging, building and dune hopping and crabbing at Wells Next the Sea.

Hazel Neal purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Hazel Neal chose Hunstanton

Myself and my husband holidayed on the North Norfolk coast as children and loved the vastness of the beaches and walking in the area.

The main attraction about Jasmine Cottage was the traditional aspect and, although derelict, the cosy feel it had - original wooden floorboards, cute attic bedrooms, winding staircases, a multitude of rooms a bit tardis-like really - and of course the potential to make it a really nice cottage.

The location of the cottage is also ideal as it is situated just behind the High Street and therefore all amenities can be reached on foot. Including the beach which is literally a 5 minute walk and so is great for families.

Hunstanton sits right on the edge of a large Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - this is a most beautiful and diverse coastline with so much to experience.

What makes this cottage unique

As mentioned the cottage location is really ideal as you can walk to all amenities, including the beach.

There is a professional kitchen which can easily cater for a full house, and a private, enclosed, decked/stone garden to the rear with outdoor cooking and eating facilities which is overlooked by a sun room to the rear of the cottage.

In the winter there is an open fire in the lounge and a french wood burning stove in the dining room.

Lovely cottage in a traditional British seaside resort

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped cottage with plenty of room for the kids to have space to play. Ideally situated for the beach and the shops, and the restaurants.

Plenty of things to do in Hunstanton, Shark boat, Sealife and the Swimming pool were excellent.

Great beach, horse rides and walks.

Lovely theatre nearby.

Really good family accommodation.

Lovely sunny garden.

I always judge a place by how the Grandkids feel and they thought it was brilliant, although one suggested a hot tub in the garden would be a great addition.

Owner's Response: Hi Barrie Your comments resonate with me as I spent a lot of time at the cottage with my children when they were little, while we renovated it and Hunstanton has so many family things to do. Funnily enough we considered putting a hot tub in the garden! So pleased to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay. Hazel

a great weekend

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights. The house was great in all, very spacious, accommodation is over 3 floors so we didn't feel as if were in each others pockets despite there being 11 of us (6 adults and 5 kids). Location is perfect 5 mins from the beach and shops/cafes/restaurants around the corner.

The courtyard garden is lovely and we were visited regularly by 2 gorgeous ragdolls which was the icing on the cake for the kids!

The kitchen is very well equipped. The only minor flaw and one that would not put us off returning in any way, was that some of the kitchen surfaces/oven were a little bit sticky and some of the utensils/crockery needed cleaning before we used them-just popped them in dishwasher so no big deal.

We had a great time and would love to return.

Great time

  • 4 of 5

“ The property was deceptively large and perfectly located for all the amenities being 5/10 minutes walk away. Our problem was choosing the coldest weekend of the year!

Despite plenty of radiators and a log burning fire the house was very draughty.

The house was very clean, well equipped and well maintained. The owners are really friendly and very accommodating.

We would recommend this property and would like to return in the warmer weather!”
