Overview

About the property

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.

Fabulous cottage with everything you could possibly need for your stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. It is perfectly located for everything - dog walking on the beach, fishing and close to local amenities. The cottage has everything and is deceptively large inside. Would highly recommend staying here.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just had our second stay at Sandy Cottage and had another fantastic week. The cottage is perfect and has everything you need, the beds are really comfortable and having a second bathroom is a real bonus and one of the reasons we booked again. We love how close to the beach it is and so does Martha (our Cocker Spaniel) as she gets to walk for miles. It is ideally located close to Gt Yarmouth for the amusements, restaurants (and we greatly recommend the Casino and its restaurant!!). Brilliant place to come and unwind, we would thoroughly recommend a visit and hope to return next year. Owners very quick to respond and great to deal with.

Beautiful cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and our Golden Retriever Piper have just spent a week at this outstanding cottage. The cottage itself is in a perfect position, so close to the dunes and long sandy beach. It is beautifully decorated with everything supplied you could wish for. The beds were so comfortable and having two bathrooms was a bonus. There is a lovely fish and chip shop at the end of the road, well worth a visit . We met many local residents who were very welcoming, always having time for a chat. We walked the beach and dunes every day for miles and Piper was in her element. Thanks to Gary the property owner, booking was simple. Any emails I sent him were answered very promptly. We will be booking this lovely cottage again for certain.

Thanks Gary and Denise. Gill, Derek and Piper.
