Property details

A beautiful, fully refurbished flint fronted detached bungalow set in glorious private gardens, within easy walking distance of two popular coastal villages, the North Norfolk coastal path and an award-winning gastro pub. And it's dog friendly too. Tick, tick, tick!

As soon as you walk into the front door of Waterside you will realise you have made the perfect choice for your holiday. The bungalow is all on one level (although there are steps within the garden) and evokes the feeling of your very own private, welcoming and peaceful, luxurious country house hotel. Decorated and furnished in a relaxing and sophisticated, low key style, the sociable living areas are spacious, and the four inviting bedrooms (one king, two super king/twin and a twin) all come dressed in top quality bed linen and have seriously comfortable mattresses. The sitting room is a lovely light-filled room with windows to two sides, french doors to the front garden and a wood burning stove to light on chillier days. The open plan L-shaped kitchen diner has a very well-equipped kitchen at one end, with full length windows and door leading out to the patio and garden, and dining area at the other where windows also overlook the rear garden. Half way between the two is a separate utility room with a further door to the patio. Waterside is enclosed by an east-west facing garden. The rear garden is where you will want to spend most of your time. Here you can enjoy an outdoor lunch sat on the large curved patio overlooking the spacious lawned area below.

Wiveton is a pretty hamlet of detached houses and cottages, just a mile south of the main coastal road that runs between Blakeney and Cley-next-the-Sea - both of which are within reasonable walking distance of Waterside. In Cley you will find tea rooms, a couple of galleries, Cley Windmill, where you can have a fabulous meal overlooking the marshes, and there's super delicatessen to tempt your taste buds, which also sells fruit and veg. Blakeney, the bigger village of the two, has shops, galleries, pubs and The Blakeney Hotel (a must for afternoon tea), a small supermarket and a petrol station. In between the two is Wiveton Hall Cafe, which has made a name for itself on the recent BBC series Normal for Norfolk. So much so, it's now essential to book ahead in the height of summer! The Coasthopper bus services runs regularly along the coast road throughout the year and is a great way of visiting all the other coastal villages without the need to use your car.

Waterside holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

The delightful North Norfolk hamlet of Wiveton is within walking distance of the popular coastal villages of Blakeney and Cley-next-the-Sea. Set in the peaceful Glaven Valley, Wiveton is home to two fabulous places to eat - the award-winning gastro pub,The Wiveton Bell, and the popular Wiveton Hall Cafe (star of BBC's Normal for Norfolk series) with it's fruit farm - where you can either 'pick your own' or buy fruit ready picked. During the late summer the lanes around Wiveton and the paths on The Wiveton Downs are laden with elderberries, which are excellent for wine-making and preserving, later in the year Blackberries and Sloes are abundant. This area of North Norfolk is a walkers and birdwatchers paradise. Nearby Norfolk Wildlife Trust at Cley marshes is a fantastic educational centre, offers guided tours around the reserve, and has its own cafe with far reaching views across the marshes.

Lovely Cottage. Very Cosy and well equipped. Great location for the coast. Wiveton Bell is a great local pub - we had many great meals there.
