Dog Friendly, Cosy Fisherman's Cottage Within 150 Metres Of A Long Sandy Beach



Updated: 16-Oct-2016
Cottage in Caister-on-Sea, Nr. Great Yarmouth, North Norfolk, England - Village Location, Close To The Norfolk Broads And Just 3 Miles From Great Yarmouth

Sandy Cottage is an original mid 1800's semi detached Fisherman's Cottage. Recently refurbished it boasts a central location in the old part of Caister village, approx 150 metres from the quiet sandy beach and dunes (Dog friendly beach all year). Fishing is popular on the local beach, with a good selection of different species being caught all year round. Views of the Caister Life Boat Station and a partial sea view can be seen from the front bedroom window. With off street parking for 2 vehicles on a gravel driveway to the front of the cottage there is also plenty of additional parking on the road down the side of the property. The nearest pub and chip shop are situated about 150 metres away with several other pubs, restaurants, takeaways and shops within a 5-10 minute walk. The moated Caister Castle and the Beautiful Norfolk Broads National Park are just a very short drive away, giving you the opportunity to explore the Broads and maybe do some fishing aboard your very own Broads cruiser which you can hire for a day from one of the many local boatyards. The Cathedral City of Norwich is situated within a 30 minute drive. With its Castle, many Historical attractions and endless shops restaurants and entertainment, your sure to find something for everyone. The Seaside resort of Great Yarmouth is just 3 miles away with good public transport links (buses every 10 minutes). If you enjoy the flashing lights of the arcades on the seafront, enjoy a few white knuckle rides or are looking for some night-life then its well worth a visit. It also hosts a Shopping Centre, Racecourse, Golf course and Dog/Banger racing Stadium. If you want a quiet retreat or enjoy a busy schedule then Sandy Cottage is ideally placed for you to relax or explore the surrounding area.

Wonderful clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful cottage that is literally yards from the beach.

In short everything worked: the cottage is beautifully decorated, ideally situated, properly kitted out. It has two good bathrooms, TV in every room, fast internet access, local shops and pubs and restaurants, great beaches and dunes on the doorstep, great kitchen.

The photographs do not do it justice - it is much much better than it looks.

Don't hesitate, just book it!

all you could hope for and in a holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Sandy Cottage with my husband ,daughter and 2 grandchildren (who were so excited that they had a television in their bedroom) the cottage was all we could want and more,with lovely décor comfortable furniture to sit on,really comfortable beds,2 bathrooms,and with 2 small grandchildren made life very easy,in previous reviews the stairs were mentioned,they were no problem to us but could understand less able people could find them difficult, the owners thought of everything including stair gates top and bottom,so once we were all in bed it gave us security because little ones can get up in the night,but bless them they slept very well, TV in everyroom,Wifi,we felt thoroughly spoilt, the owners could not have been more helpful from the initial booking, answering emails promptly.to top everything off we had the best weather and we all had a wonderful time.I would thoroughly recommend this cottage,and I do hope in the future we can return.regards Mrs Elmer and family

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed holiday cottage, television in every room, fast broadband for the kids, 2 minutes from the beach, great showers, pub round the corner, fish and chip shop end of the road. All good.

Only thing to be aware of (and it says in the property lisitng) - stairs are very narrow and quite steep - this has been done to make effective use of layout upstairs but could be a struggle for some.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. In an attempt to restore the cottage as sympathetically as possible, we tried to keep many of the original features. Although the staircase is quite narrow and quaint, we feel it does adds to the character and charm of the cottage and is typical of a property of this type and age.
