    “The house was perfectly situated for all of our needs and the house facilities were perfect and had everything that we could ask for.”

    The TV channel selection was great and ample to keep the kids amused! I have had to give a lower score for the cleanliness of the property. Overall it was clean, but there was a film of dust over the cooker and cooker hood - someone before our stay had written 'clean me' on the hood, so it had not been cleaned before our stay. Also the corners of the rooms had dust on the floors plus there were cobwebs in some of the rooms. The main issue we encountered was the towels - although they appeared ...

    The TV channel selection was great and ample to keep the kids amused! I have had to give a lower score for the cleanliness of the property. Overall it was clean, but there was a film of dust over the cooker and cooker hood - someone before our stay had written 'clean me' on the hood, so it had not been cleaned before our stay. Also the corners of the rooms had dust on the floors plus there were cobwebs in some of the rooms. The main issue we encountered was the towels - although they appeared clean when we arrived, they smelt like they had been dried over an open fire and after one use they smelt really damp. The rotary line for the garden was broken and the heating was not on so they could not be dried well. During our week stay I had to wash the towels twice. I contacted the owner after 3 days and they were able to provide additional towels from their store but these towels also smelt bad so could not be used. My suggestion would be, as there is power outside, I would consider installing a condensing tumble dryer in the shed.

The property

Sheringham 3.2 miles. Compass House is a historic flint cottage located just off the main road leading to the seaside in Sheringham. It is the perfect home for a family or group of six looking to enjoy a coastal getaway on the north Norfolk coast. The house has two parking spaces, a small, fenced front garden, and a furnished courtyard area in the back where you may relax and enjoy your morning coffee. Enter the house through a little porchway at the back of the building. Once inside, you'll find a sitting area with two leather sofas for you to unwind on and an open fireplace warming the room as you watch a family movie on the TV. The chic kitchen/diner has a dining table with space for the entire party to sit down and enjoy a meal, possible to prepare in the well-equipped kitchen, which also includes a practical butcher's block that provides plenty of space to prepare ingredients. The first of the three bedrooms is located on the ground floor and features a roomy double bedroom with plenty of storage space and a large en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower over, perfect for any guests with mobility issues. The adjacent utility room has a washing machine and leads to a convenient cloakroom. The next two bedrooms are a welcoming, neutrally decorated twin and a double room, both of which are served by a family bathroom with a corner bath and shower over. The staircase is hidden behind a door in the kitchen. Climb the small stairs to reach them. The civil parish of Bodham is snuggled inside the Norfolk Coast AONB and features a tavern and a village hall just a short stroll from the house. It is also conveniently close to the Muckleburgh Military Collection and the North Norfolk Railway Museum. Just over three miles away is the seaside town of Sheringham, which has a wide variety of stores, pubs, and restaurants as well as the National Trust's Sheringham Park, which has 1000 acres of gardens, a museum, a theatre, the RNLI Sheringham Lifeboat Station, and of course, its renowned sandy beach, which regularly receives a Blue Flag for cleanliness. A journey west takes you to Weybourne Beach and nature reserve, Cley and Salthouse Marshes, one of the nation's most popular birdwatching locations, the National Trust's Blakeney National Nature Reserve, and the magnificent stately home of Holkham Hall. A journey east along the coast takes you to the town of Cromer, with its picturesque beach. Just four miles from the property is the historic town of Holt, which is located on the edge of the AONB. The best ways to explore the town are the Holt Owl Trail, a walking route that passes by many of the town's notable sites, and the charming Holt Country Park, which has 100 acres of woodland to discover. After a day of visiting North Norfolk, Compass Cottage makes a lovely place to unwind.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.

About the location

SHERINGHAM

Cromer 4.8 miles.

Sheringham was originally a small fishing village on the North Norfolk coast, but with the arrival of the railways in 1887 it prospered and grew into a popular holiday town. Sheringham has been awarded ten consecutive European Blue Flags for cleanliness for its beach, along with awards from Britain in Bloom, Anglia in Bloom, and Best Coastal Resort. Enjoy walking along the East or West promenades, offering sea views with blue skies and red sunsets, a beach with a silver-pebbled shoreline leading to golden sands with rock pools and streams next to ochre cliffs, local fishing boats and a RLNI lifeboat station with museum. This attractive traditional seaside town also has the 'Little Theatre', open all year round, seaside gardens with seating, a model boating lake, independent shops, tea rooms, steam railway, golfing, amusement arcades, and fish & chip shops selling locally-caught fish.
