Property details

Stiffkey Hideaway is a newly built single-story extension attached to the owner's bungalow. Tucked away down a quiet lane that leads to the Blakeney National Trust Reserve, stunning Stiffkey Marshes and North Norfolk coastal path, this really is a secret hideaway. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing location, with a touch of luxury and lovely open views across farmland to the marshes beyond, this place is just for you!

The cottage style apartment has its own private entrance, and enclosed pretty courtyard garden. Spacious and comfortably furnished, with garden views from every room, the charming owners have created a very well thought out, well-equipped and special space for two - ideally suited to a couple, but two friends can easily be accommodated as there is a second bathroom and a sofabed in the living area, if two beds is your preference (please request on booking). This is a wonderful walking and bird watching area and, with the Coasthopper bus service regularly passing by at the end of the lane throughout the year, you can opt to leave your car behind for your entire stay and make it a truly relaxing holiday!

Stiffkey is a beautiful coastal village built on the banks of Stiffkey chalk stream and well known for the narrow and winding road that runs through it. The handy and popular Stiffkey Stores sells newspapers, household essentials and tempting knickknacks, and is becoming renowned for its delicious homemade treats and 'Monmouth' coffee. The Red Lion is an old fashioned, traditional village pub offering good food and a warm Norfolk welcome.

Stiffkey Hideaway holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Stiffkey is situated between Wells-next-the-Sea and Blakeney. A very picturesque village, popular with visitors, with a very friendly local pub and a great village store, with a coffee shop selling delicious cakes, interesting things to buy, and has a post office facility. The huge horizons and a vast open expanse of the salt marshes with their twisting creeks and muddy basins, create a perfect habitat for a wide range of birdlife, mainly waders and wintering wildfowl, and an array of unusual plant life.The Norfolk Coast path passes along the perimeter of the salt marshes towards Morston and Blakeney to the east and westwards to Wells-Next-The-Sea - a superb walk in either direction, with breathtaking views and sightings of birds both winter and summer.

Guest reviews

We love staying at the Stiffkey Hideaway. Clean, warm, modern and comfortable accommodation, with modern kitchen, two bathrooms and off-street parking. Very well appointed and handy for walking down to the coastal path and salt marshes. Great area to explore.

This was our first visit to Norfolk and did we pick the right accommodation and location YES. Extremely well presented and comfortable accommodation in an incredible area with so many places to visit. We made use of the excellent local bus service "Coasthopper". In total a real delight. We will be back.

Lovely location, edge of village, looking out on a field of grain! Great for North Norfolk coastal walks. Short walk to pub and village store, great variety of consumables and daily papers. Cottage garden beautiful with plants in pot and outside bench and chairs in private area - essential in 2018 summer. Accommodation was very comfortable, all mod cons. Great size bed and bedroom and en-suite. Two loos! Privacy excellent and owners very helpful.

Our week in Stiffkey. We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely hideaway, very quiet location and handy for the coast hopper bus at the end of the lane which we used a few times. Would definitely return.

Stiffkey Hideaway - perfect accommodation for a relaxing break. A spacious home from home. Everywhere was clean and the bathrooms very modern with smashing showers. It was lovely to go back to after a day exploring. The garden area was also thoughtfully done. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Shame it was not bigger as I know my children and their families would have loved to stay there.

We loved it. My sister and I stayed here for a week in April. We were walking/birdwatching in the area. The accommodation was perfect for us and we had the bonus of having a brilliant week weatherwise. Owners were caring and helpful without being intrusive. The Hideaway is modern and clean with good facilities. Also situated in a good position - very close to the coast path and only 2 minutes walk from the bus stop for the Coast Hopper service. We loved it and would definitely return.

Convenient base for North Norfolk coast. Modern, quiet, convenient apartment. A good base for exploring the north Norfolk coast. There was a kind welcome on arrival. An excellent pub in Stiffkey village for eating out. A very short walk down to the shore. A pleasant garden area to take a coffee outside when the weather is good.

All we needed for our stay was provided to a high level. We were greeted with wine and chocolates which set the tone for our stay. The condition of the property was excellent and the heating system during a cold spell was perfect. Would definitely stay again.

A relaxing week by the sea

Ideally situated for the coastal path, Well and Cley both within easy walk. Red Lion pub really worth a visit and the Stiffkey stores are a lovely find too. Owners were lovely and house as expected.

Five Star in every way!

We cannot speak too highly of this property. Beautiful location. Decorated to a high standard with two bathrooms. All facilities and equipment excellent - right down to the plates and dishes! Very helpful and friendly couple who had thought of everything to make the accommodation just right for a holiday for two. Parking at the property a real bonus in this part of North Norfolk. Coast-hopper bus stop just down the road and the beautiful coast and salt marshes two minutes walk away. Just perfect for a peaceful break.
