Reputedly one of the oldest houses in the village, Hambledon is pretty as a picture with a flint walled cottage garden to the front, and climbing roses around the windows.
Once inside the front door, you will be charmed by the delightfully cosy rooms that are brim full of character with fireplaces, beams, Pamment flooring, the odd curved wall, a sloping floor or two, latch doors and pretty floral wallpapers. Thankfully the staircases are straight (yes, there are two, and one is steepish), the furniture very comfortable, the antique style beds have mattresses that will guarantee you a good night, and the small, but perfectly formed, kitchen is very well-equipped. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one has a fabulous Fired Earth slipper bath), a spacious sitting room with dining area as well as a snug/study, this lovely cottage will appeal to families, friends, birders and walkers - in fact anyone who would like to spend some time in this pretty coastal village.
Cley-next-the-Sea is a popular holiday destination, and bustles with visitors almost all year round. There's a fantastic delicatessen and local smokehouse just around the corner, as well as a restored windmill for fine dining, pubs, cafes and galleries all within easy walking distance. You can pick up the North Norfolk coastal path from the village, take a stroll to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust's oldest and best known nature reserve and its Visitor Centre, or catch the Coasthopper bus service and take a ride to the other lovely villages along the coast. The beautiful Georgian market town of Holt - only three miles inland - is a popular shopping destination, and well worth a visit.
