Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, Single Storey Cottage At Heart of Pretty, Rural Village with Super Pub, Quiet Lanes and Footpaths. Blue Flag Beaches 4 Miles. Child, Mobility & Dog Friendly. Secure Garden, Wifi

Coach Cottage (sleeping 6 + cots) is in a secluded position in the centre of Southrepps, 5 mins walking distance from the child / dog friendly Vernon Arms pub which serves cask ale and great food. Built in 2014 this sunny, single storey, non-smoking cottage benefits from all modern amenities (e.g. underfloor heating, wifi, catch-up TV, wood burning stove) whilst offering a character cottage with Norfolk charm. Our guests say Coach Cottage suits every age - new born to 90 year old grand parent as well as part time wheel chair users. Dogs seem to enjoy staying too.

The cottage has a spacious, triple aspect lounge with double sided wood burner and French doors to garden. The ample seating includes an electric riser / recliner massage armchair. There is a separate south facing dining area and a modern, fitted and well equipped Shaker style kitchen.

Sleeping 6 in 3 double bedrooms - you chose the sleeping configuration of bedroom 2 - twin, double or single if floorspace is your requirement. Bedroom 1 has a shower / WC ensuite. All beds have pocket sprung mattresses, white cotton linen, and anti allergy pillows and duvets. Main bathroom with full length corner bath and separate shower cubicle. Separate (third) WC. Towels for 6 people included. 2 travel cots and optional child equipment. Good accessibility. Step free access, wide corridors and internal doors. Mobility aids.

Summer is a glorious time to stay - magnificent countryside to explore in an area with lots of sun and low average rainfall. The heavenly sandy beach of Mundesley (voted in 2016 as second best Blue Flag beach in the UK) is 10 minutes drive away. The beautiful countryside offers coastal and rural paths, many historic houses and mesmerising gardens. Throughout the year there are attractions, festivals and events aplenty. Winter is a wonderful time to visit North Norfolk too with plenty of concerts, Christmas markets, pageants, Boxing Day dips, New Year fireworks and Christmas / February pantos. Under-floor heating driven and a wood burning stove ensure you are warm and cosy.

Coach Cottage is close to regional cycle routes and Norfolk Trails for walkers; near fishing lakes and golf courses, whilst surfers may ride the local beach waves.

Private garden with garden furniture, BBQ. Table football in garage for 2-4 players.

Off-road parking for 2 cars. Additional communal parking 50m away or on public road.

Secure storage for bicycle / buggy / golfing & fishing equipment available in garage.

About Kathryn Moore

North Norfolk is a wonderful place to live (and visit) and I am privileged to be able to be able to spend every day walking our sandy beaches and rural footpaths with my dog and every night, star gazing. In my previous life I was a city girl, enjoying the bright lights. For many years I relished this fast paced lifestyle. Norfolk offers a different pace of life. Locals speak of "Norfolk Time".... time to chat in shops, pause for thought and mingle with villagers. Now I love to return to the city for a visit, but my heart is most decidedly that of a "country mouse". My hope when you visit is that a little bit of the North Norfolk magic entices you to return time and time again, perhaps one day for good....

Kathryn Moore purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kathryn Moore chose Norfolk & The Broads

When I visited North Norfolk on a cycling holiday over 12 years ago, I fell in love with Southrepps, the rural location, the magnificent church & wonderful pub. So I am delighted to be able to share the magic of Southrepps by offering Coach Cottage as a holiday let. My aim is that you have a lovely stay in Coach Cottage and that it may be enjoyed by every age and every ability. For that reason, I sought out a single storey, modern cottage at the centre of Southrepps village and provide optional baby / toddler equipment, mobility aids and a table football. If you have a special request please ask. Life in North Norfolk is easier with a car. If you don't have a car, the 33 bus service links Southrepps with Cromer and North Walsham and their train services. Gunton station is a 1.5 miles away.

What makes this cottage unique

Perfectly situated to take advantage of all the attractions to the West and those, lesser known, to the East; Southrepps makes the ideal base. The wealth of activities and beautiful scenary offer something for everyone - beach life, bird & seal watching, cycling, golfing and just pottering around. One of the joys of living in North Norfolk is the many footpaths, nature trails and child / dog friendly pubs. So, families and well behaved dogs are most welcome at Coach Cottage. In early August, Southrepps hosts a week of classical musical concerts attracting top names. Similarly the local villages host classical, theatrical and artistic events throughout the year so there is always a local activity to enjoy or, only 40 minutes drive away, the vibrant, cultural city of Norwich awaits.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We have had a brilliant week at Coach Cottage. So comfortable for 6 adults, a toddler and two dogs with every possible thing we could need available. We even baked a cake!

We had one beach day at West Runton where also on a rainy day we visited The Links Hotel to use their swimming pool. We had it to ourselves for a while and it was only £10 for a family pass.

The Poppy Railway was a great success with our 2 year old and took us to Holt and Byfords, which is well worth a visit.

Once the younger family members had gone home we had a couple of days to visit the Open Studios – so many to look at you could spend the whole week just doing that.

We too found the Vernon Arms very friendly, the food excellent and the dogs were well accepted in the bar.

The welcome goodies were lovely and appreciated by everyone.

We are sorry to be leaving but hope in the future to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your charming review. Am delighted you enjoyed your stay, took advantage of all the wonderful activities we have around us, and also enjoyed the Vernon Arms. I have passed on your feedback and the staff are pleased. The Open Studios is a wonderful opportunity to view the amazing works of our local artists and chat with them in a low pressure environment. Each year there are more and more participating. So maybe, if you would like to visit Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios 2018 you might consider Coach Cottage again. Once again, thank you

Spacious, bright and very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We, a party of 4 adults and 2 dogs, had a lovely stay at Coach Cottage. The cottage was as described in the particulars and the pre arrival communication very thorough. I choose the cottage because it was dog friendly, well positioned for our first trip to Norfolk, and looked modern and spacious with at least two bathrooms. It proved to be an excellent choice. One thing that I did not see mentioned but really appreciated was that it was very quiet. Even though the weather was not at its best we enjoyed walking with the dogs on the glorious beaches, visited the nearby National Trust properties, the local pub and went both north and south to the Broads. Would we stay again - a definite yes.

Fab stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Coach Cottage. Everything was perfect and the welcome hamper of goodies was very thoughtful, especially the Strawberry and Vanilla jam.

We’d recommend the River Kitchen in Wroxham for breakfast and Richardson’s boat hire. It was a great way to spend the day. Walcott beach/ seafront was so quiet and peaceful today, the perfect place to to go for a swim! Thank you.

Beautifully equipped cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Coach Cottage, it is so well equipped. Everything you could possibly need is here and the welcome pack was a lovely treat. Plenty of room for myself, my two boys, my mum and her dog

We enjoyed trips to Mundesley beach, Wroxham, Norwich, Thrigby Hall, Happisburgh as well as making use of the swimming pool at North Walsham and hiring a day boat (Wroxham), rowing boat (Hickling) and canoe (Wayford Bridge). Can also recommend Wayford Bridge Inn for a meal (much easier to get a table than the Vernon Arms (which was also good)).

Excellent and well maintained cottage

  • 4 of 5

“The cottage really suited us, 4 adults inc 1 wheelchair, 1x 4year old, 1x 1year old. We loved the cottage. Clean and excellent condition, suitable for a wheelchair to get around.

The cottage is well stocked with games, books etc. We wanted for nothing.

Great location for different activities. We were really well informed beforehand and plenty of useful information in the cottage. I would recommend this cottage without any hesitation to anyone - thanks Kathryn. We loved our stay.”

Coast/Beach:

Norfolk has many sandy beaches, nearby Mundesley-on-sea(4 miles) is the undiscovered gem. Teenagers often body surf. Good line fishing.

The charming town of Cromer(5.5 miles), renowned for Cromer Crab, boasts a thriving pier with the only end of pier theatre in England.

Midway between famous Holkham beach & seals at Horsey beach.

Mundesley, Cromer and Sheringham all have life guards in high season and year round life boat / in-shore rescue.

Dogs allowed on beaches but in restricted areas.

Travel:

London Stansted airport is 105 miles away. Public transport from Stansted is possible but not easy; car hire recommended.

Having a car in North Norfolk makes life easier, however public transport serves the village - a bus service stops at the pub (5 mins walk away) and Gunton train station is 1.5 miles away. North Walsham and Cromer are nearest larger rail stations where taxis may be found. If you plan to come by public transport, do contact the owner for advice.

Distances:

The cottage is 5 minutes walk to the local pub serving food and cask ale, with a further few minutes walk to the PO, corner shop and village's children's play area. The nearby local villages of Northrepps (2 miles), Trunch (3 miles), Mundesley (4 miles) and Overstrand (4 miles) and towns of Cromer (5.5 miles) and Sheringham (11 miles) host classical, theatrical and artistic events throughout the year so there is always a local activity to enjoy. Norwich is about 22 miles away.

Further Details:

Please see our web site for fuller details of the many events and festivals nearby and for ideas of what to do and see, and where to eat. Some gems include....

Southrepps Classical Music Festival, Beer Festival and the many events in the magnificent church including climbing its tower. Children may enjoy the village play area with zip wire and football pitch.

Mundesley's (4 miles) idyllic sandy beaches (dogs permitted in all but central section) and Cromer's (5.5 miles) unique pier & Amazona Zoo.

Margaret's Amazing Doll Hospital & Museum in Bacton (6 miles) - bring your broken teddy, doll or toy on holiday and return refreshed & mended!

Happisburgh (10 miles) famed for its independent lighthouse & disappearing shoreline.

Sheringham's (11 miles) steam train to Holt.

The magnificent Elizabethan Great Barn at Waxham (19 miles).

Sea Palling (20 miles) popular for wind surfing.

Horsey Beach (22 miles) for walking the dunes and seal watching especially in winter. Or off Blakeney (19 miles) - by boat. Sometimes seals, and even whales, are seen at Mundesley.

National Trust lovers will enjoy visiting the nearby Horsey Wind Pump, Felbrigg Hall, Blicking Hall with Anne Boleyn’s ghost and Sheringham Park.

For those who want to travel further back in time, budding geologists will enjoy fossil hunting on the beaches. Guided fossil tours are available.

For garden lovers, then an absolute must is East Ruston Vicarage Gardens (11 miles).

Cyclists will enjoy the quiet lanes, walkers the many Norfolk Trails and Coastal Path, then there is bird and seal watching. Anglers may try their skill in the local ponds or sea fishing.

Waitrose, Morrisons, Lidl, Sainbury's, Tesco supermarkets are nearby & deliver.

Dogs will love roaming across the many paths and trails (details in the cottage), dining out in the many dog friendly cafes, pubs & hotels (the local Vernon Arms & nearby Gunton Arms & Sea Marge Hotel being especially notable), and paddling in the sea...
