Hide away in Sunny, Single Storey Coach Cottage - 4 Star Gold "Home from Home"

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
Coach Cottage in Southrepps, nr Cromer, Mundesley, North Norfolk - At Heart of Pretty Village with Pub / Shop. Beach 4 Miles. Child, Mobility / Wheelchair & Dog Friendly. Secure Garden, Wifi

Coach Cottage (sleeping 6 + cots) is in a secluded position within a small community of flint and brick houses 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 commend us on how child, mobility and part time wheelchair user friendly we are. Dogs seem to enjoy staying too.

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.

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.

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. Our guests say Coach Cottage suits every age - new born to 90 year old grand parent!

Under-floor heating driven by green energy, electric air source heat pump. Separate room thermostats. Electricity and logs for wood burning stove included.

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.

About the Owner

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....

“Beautiful cottage which is very well equipped – all needs human and canine thoughtfully covered.

Kathryn is a lovely welcoming host who pays close attention to detail and readily contactable if needed (we did not but she kept us aware of changes to local events).

All in all perfect for our dog walking weekend – would definitely recommend."

Great for families!

This was our second stay at Coach Cottage and it was every bit as good as the first. The owner Kathryn, clearly makes every effort to ensure your holiday is memorable and provided us with a wonderful welcome pack, including two pumpkins for the children to carve. Coach cottage is a wonderful base for us to be close to Friends in nearby Gimingham and to explore North Norfolk, we can highly recommend this spacious but cosy cottage.

Coach Cottage Southrepps

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful welcoming place to stay. Coach Cottage is very clean and extremely well equipped. An Ideal location in a beautiful village very close to the seaside towns of Cromer and Mundesley and also had the advantage for us being so close to St James Church, Southrepps for my daughters wedding.

We have enjoyed our stay and hopefully will return. Thank you.

Fantastic

“We too have enjoyed a lovely holiday in Coach Cottage with blissful weather and so much to do and see, we couldn’t ask for better.

Given all the complimentary comments penned previously, there is little to add! However, as well seasoned cottage holiday renters we must congratulate Kathryn for the best, most well equipped cottage we have stayed in. Thank you.

East Ruston Old Vicarage

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : The Vernon Arms at 300 Metres Nearest Golf : Royal Cromer Golf Course at 8 Kilometres Nearest Train : Gunton Station (2.7km); North Walsham (10.5km) at 2.7 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : The Vernon Arms at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Overstrand(4.8km), Mundesley(6.4km), Cromer(8km) at 4.8 Kilometres Car: not necessary

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...

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
