    “Beautiful cottage with a large enclosed garden which was ideal for our dog.”

    The location is perfect and only a few mins walk from the beach. Some lovely walks direct from the cottage to West Runton, Cromer and Sheringham.

The property

8 Melinda Cottage is an attractive, end-of-terrace fisherman’s cottage situated on a private no-through lane and close to the sea front in the charming village of East Runton, close to Cromer in North Norfolk. Just a moment’s walk from the beach, local shops, pubs and restaurants, 8 Melinda Cottage is a superb choice for a family and two dogs seeking a coastal base in Norfolk. The property has been furnished with a practical touch but with quality in mind; head inside and discover the open-plan living space, equipped with a fitted kitchen housing all the necessities for a week-away, whilst the dining table is ideal for mealtimes. Make yourself at home on the settee, flicking through channels on the Smart TV whilst the woodburning stove gently crackles in the background. Head upstairs to discover the bedrooms, each neutrally presented with a double with en-suite cloakroom, a twin, and an adult single. Start the morning with a rejuvenating shower in the bathroom before heading out to the rear garden, an enclosed space with bistro furniture, a barbecue, and a secure shed for bike storage. When you’re ready to explore the area, you won’t have to go far to reach several amenities, including supermarkets, restaurants and pubs at the end of the road. Continue to the sandy expanse of East Runton Beach, where you can spend an afternoon building sandcastles, testing your balance on a surfboard, or exploring the many rock pools. The beach is also dog-friendly so your canine companions won’t have to be left behind! Within a mile and a half lies Cromer, home to a Victorian pier offering theatre shows, the RNLI lifeboat station which tells the story of Cromer’s long lifeboat history, plus a selection of shops and fantastic restaurants – make sure you sample the famous Cromer crabs, which are a must! Head to the National Trust’s Sheringham Park and wander over a thousand acres of woodland and parkland with your pooch, whilst the Blakeney National Nature Reserve offers leisurely strolls with a chance to see unusual plants and wildlife. Escape to the North Norfolk coast with a stay at 8 Melinda Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
