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.

Cozy cottage by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our may bank holiday weekend stay and were spoilt with glorious weather which led to pleasant dog walks along the peaceful dunes and coastline. Sandy cottage can comfortably sleep 6 with the 2 modern bathrooms, although the kitchen and dining area is better suited for 4 people (at a time). I thought it odd there were few pots, untill I discovered a drawer full of pots the morning we checked out ( my bad). There are TVs in the living room and main bedrooms, with a variety of channels. The beach is just 2 minutes away, with a great fish & chip shop around the corner. Caister-on-Sea is a charming little town worth a visit!

Well kept, clean and equipped. Excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

Good quality furnishings and equipment. TV in all rooms and internet WiFi. House was extremely clean and decor was clean too. Easy access to beach and dunes all within a short walk. Good chippy and pub too within short walk. Off road parking a bonus as so close to beach. Only one negative was the very steep and narrow stairs which for the less nimble may prove a challenge. I decided the best way back down them was by treating them like a ladder and coming down backwards. Lots to do in the area and the local beach and dunes great for walkers, children and well behaved dogs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Sandy Cottage. The cottage does have it's original staircase which is typical of a period property of this age and style. It is quite narrow which is why it is advised in the listing as not suitable for guests with mobility issues. We have let the cottage for about 5 years now and generally to my knowledge the staircase doesn't cause any problems for most of our guests. I am sorry to hear that you struggled with the stairs and hope this didn't inconvenience you or deter you from returning to our cottage as we have a long list of regularly returning guests and would love to welcome you back.

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.
