Manor Cottage description

Set in the picturesque coastal village of Stiffkey and just 5 minutes from Wells-next-the-Sea, this detached holiday cottage provides light and airy accommodation with lots of original features. Originally a barn belonging to the manor house, it enjoys a peaceful setting with seasonal access to the owner’s outdoor heated swimming pool and year-round access to their tennis court. Stiffkey offers access to the sea via its famous and much photographed salt marshes, and is famous for its Stewkey Blues; plump and tasty cockles, which are blue in colour due to the mud in which they live.

This whole part of the North Norfolk Coastline offers a range of picturesque seaside villages and towns, salt marshes, shingle beaches and wide golden sands that are perfect for sun bathing, relaxing or for bracing walks. Whichever way you travel from Stiffkey, you will find much to see and do. Its closest and arguably most popular neighbour is Well-next-the-Sea, with its narrow gauge railway, pretty quayside and mix of artisan and traditional seaside shops, cafes and restaurants. Further along lies Holkham, home to Holkham Hall and a beautiful beach that featured in the film Shakespeare in Love. Hunstanton boasts a Sea Life Sanctuary, a small fairground and lots of traditional seaside entertainment for parents and children alike. To the east, Blakeney offers the chance to take a boat trip to see the seal colonies, and it’s also a prime spot for crabbing. The bustling seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer are a must-visit during your stay, with their fantastic beaches and a famous pier. History buffs will find that along with Holkham Hall, The Sandringham Estate and Blickling Hall (NT) are within easy reach as well.

When you feel like a change of pace, you can head to the medieval city of Norwich, or follow the Hanseatic Trail through old King’s Lynn. Add in RSPB sites and a wealth of wildlife reserves, great walks and cycle routes, tasty restaurants and charming cafés, and you’ll see exactly why this part of Norfolk remains a very popular choice for holiday goers. After a busy day exploring, you will find that Manor Cottage is just the place to relax, unwind and dream of adventures yet to come. Beach ½ mile. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
