The details
This is a traditional Norfolk cottage with thatch and flint walls dating back 300 years. Renovated by the owners in 2015 and now providing an excellent holiday base in this conservation area of the coastal village of Bacton, North Norfolk.
The accommodation is as follows
Sitting room with seating for 5 with large comfortable 3 seater sofa and 2 fireside chairs. Traditional fireplace with electric flickering 'wood burner' fire adds extra warmth if needed. Cupboards containing traditional board games and a Smart TV/DVD combo is provided. The sofa converts into a comfortable double bed.

Well equipped oak fitted kitchen with fridge, cooker/hob, microwave, toaster, kettle etc. Cutlery, crockery for 6 and a full range of cooking utensils and items are provided, Pine dresser and round dining table and 4 chairs + extra chairs if needed.

Kitchen leads to lobby to rear garden. Lovely patio area with table and chairs for breakfast catching the morning sun. Beyond the patio is a long garden with path and lawn bordered with shrubs/flowers. The sun shines in the garden most of the day but shade is provided by a large apple tree. Sun loungers and table and seats provided in the outside store along with an extra fridge freezer.

The ground floor family sized bathroom is off the sitting room with a low level WC, hand basin, panelled bath with shower and screen, heater, large airing cupboard and washing machine.

The bedrooms are up the traditional cottage stairs behind a door in the corner of the sitting room. The wooden stairs are quite steep and narrow with a built in stair gate at the top. The single bedroom is at the landing at the top of the stairs fitted with wooden rail and stair gate. There is a single bed and a folding bed is available if needed for an extra guest.

The main double bedroom is off the single bedroom with a comfortable pine framed bed and cupboard for storage. Window overlooks the front garden.

The enclosed garden at the front of the property is perfect for sitting on the bench watching the world go by and catching the evening sun. The fully enclosed rear garden catches the sun throughout the day and has a patio with seating perfect for breakfast and a raised flower bed and grassed garden with trees and shrubs with sun loungers and seating lovely for evening meals/BBQ.

We are happy for your well behaved pets to stay too and enjoy the cottage with their owners.

There is no parking immediately outside the cottage due to double yellow lines but roadside parking is available in the adjacent roads. We provide an off-road parking space for guests at our other new holiday cottage a short 4 minute walk away (see property ref 10724287)

We are very proud of our holiday home and want you to enjoy your stay but would advise that it is an old cottage with wooden floors, uneven walls and surfaces. Some of the latch and brace cottage doors are quite low and you will need to take care not to bump your head if you are tall. The stairs are quite narrow and steep and the elderly or very young would need to take care using these.

New for 2020. We have just finished work on a new 3 bedroom holiday cottage a short distance from Keswick Cottage. It is also a traditional seaside cottage although built in a different period and offers traditional features with modern comforts for a larger family or group of friends. Checkout Coastguard Cottage on this website ref 10724287. All enquiries welcome.

Beautiful property
Beautiful thatched cottage in a perfect location with all you would need to make your holiday stay comfortable. A few minutes walk to the beach. Local pub 5 min walk away along the beach or main road. Excellent vegan cafe in the village of Bacton 5 min walk along main street.

Excellent location, Quaint cottage
We enjoyed our stay in the cottage very much and its location near to the the lovely sandy beach with a short walk to a reasonable pub for food. We spend a week in the area every week as we used to live in the area and this year rated highly. The cottage also has a good garden which was good for us and our dog. The only downside was the steep stairs to the down stairs bathroom when using the loo at night but in-spite of that we would probably use it again

Ideal place for the beach
The cottage was nicely situated for the beach and most amenities are only a short walk away the garden was a quite space with a mixture of full sun and shady places to sit the beach was a lovely sandy place to sit or walk the dog with all the local shops being dog friendly it made for a much better holiday knowing we could take the dog anywhere we went .We would definitely come back again

Good choice
It is always a bit of a lottery when choosing holiday accommodation but I'm happy to say that this property proved a good choice. Clean, well equipped and conveniently located, it had everything we needed. The stairs to the bedrooms being steep and narrow as described in the property details, were a little challenging for people like ourselves, past the first flush of youth, shall I say, but with care, were manageable. Bacton itself, is perfect for people who want to get away to a place totally uncommercialized. Great beach and just the right amount of facilities regards catering requirements. An enjoyable break.
