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.
NB: THE COTTAGE HAS A NORFOLK TRADITION STEEP AND NARROW STAIRSCASE. THE BATHROOM IS ON THE GROUND FLOOR.
There are fabulous coastal walks directly from the door as well as quiet lanes and cycle routes to explore.
