Fishermans Cottage by the Sea

Beachfront Cottage with kitchenette and fireplace
A newly renovated quaint, quirky little cottage based in a hamlet of 10 other cottages. These 'Old fishermen's cottages in Hemsby' are a rare survival of homes built for people who made a living from the sea in the late 19th Century, are now a designated conversation area. The rows of terraced houses are built from beach pebbles and lime mortar with clay in a style known as Caister Cobble. Located just behind sand dunes close to the sea, the buildings are considered unspoilt and unique.

Walk outside and you are on top of a small cliff next to the sea and Norfolk's big sky. There are views of the sea from all the upstairs windows of the cottage and a few minutes walk to access to the wonderful sandy beaches nearby. If it is raining, no problem, snuggle up with a log fire and watch TV on the large smart tv.


There are fabulous coastal walks directly from the door as well as quiet lanes and cycle routes to explore. The village of Hemsby has a convenience shop, local butchers, hairdressers, and several local takeaways that will deliver. Buses run from the village to the centre of Great Yarmouth or Martham, Norwich is also within easy reach either by bus, train, or car. Take a short drive to the beautiful Norfolk Broads villages of Wroxham - known as the capital of the Norfolk Broads and, Horning, 14 miles. There is daily boat hire, river trips on the Broads and the seaside town of Great Yarmouth 6 miles away offering traditional attractions for a day out. Other fantastic days include, Fritton Lake Country World, 14 miles, and Pleasure Wood Hills theme park, 17 miles. The medieval city of Norwich, with its castle, cathedral, museums, and fine shopping is 23 miles. Other attractions include National Trust properties, open garden schemes and various museums.

Local farm shops sell homemade produce and some will deliver. In the village a small start-up bakery takes pre-orders for its delicious baked breads and cakes.

Please note there are low head room spaces between spaces in some areas. The traditional Norfolk stairs are narrow and steep.

5/5 Excellent

Our host was welcoming and extremely helpful. The property was well equipped and extremely comfortable. The only slight hiccup was the steepness of the stairs which could prove difficult for anyone who is not too good on their feet. We will definitely be returning in the future.
