The property

Primrose Cottage is a traditional north Norfolk coastal property, positioned in the heart of the village, the oldest part of the cottage is believed to be at least 300 years old and it retains many original features creating a comfortable and cosy base from where you can explore all that north Norfolk offers. There is also the convenience of being only a short walk from both the pub, which offers a welcoming atmosphere and a tasty dining menu using local produce, plus the village shop for picking up those essentials. Step into the sitting room and be welcomed by exposed beams and a wood burner set in an inglenook fireplace, that will keep you warm during those cooler winter months. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a separate storage pantry off the hall, a spacious separate dining room leads from the kitchen with plenty of space to enjoy family meals and plan your holiday adventures. There are three bedrooms offering a choice of a king-size bed, single bed or a twin-bedded room (which can be zipped and linked to create another kingsize bed), these together with the benefit of two bathrooms provides flexible accommodation to suit the needs of a modern family, a first-floor ‘snug’ also offers opportunity to enjoy some ‘me time’ reading or browsing the internet with a well-earned mug of tea. At the front of the property is the south-facing cottage garden with a lawn edged by a pretty shrub and flower bed. The patio offers a sheltered area to dine al-fresco with a charcoal BBQ and table with chairs.An electric vehicle charging point is available and a summerhouse offers storage for bikes, should you wish to explore the surrounding area on two-wheels. The National Trust owned saltmarshes are only a 0.6 mile country lane walk from the village and you can connect to the north Norfolk Coastal path to extend your stroll to more fully explore the coastal scenery, families can enjoy traditional days by the beach at nearby Wells-next-the-sea or Holkham, Stiffkey is well placed to explore the north Norfolk coast with numerous market towns, historic sites and outstanding countryside for you to discover. (Typical of many old cottages the stairs in the property are narrower and steeper than modern equivalents and floor levels differ between certain rooms on both the ground and 1st floors, as such the property may not be appropriate for guests who have mobility issues or are visually impaired).

About the location


Wells-next-the-Sea 4 miles; Blakeney 4 miles: Sheringham 12.8 miles

Nestled on the picturesque north Norfolk coast is the small village of Stiffkey, situated to the east of Wells-next-the-sea. The village rests within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and plays host to one of the country’s richest saltmarshes for wildlife, with its mud creeks, and acres of sand which are flooded daily by the tide. The National Trust owns both Stiffkey saltmarshes and Blakeney National Nature Reserve which combine to create a huge expanse of pristine saltmarsh and big skies, and is an important conservation area for breeding birds. If you want to get closer to the local wildlife head to Blakeney or Morston Quay for boat trips to view common and grey seals. Within the village, you will find a pub and a quaint store with a café, as well as the Norfolk Coast Path skirting the saltmarsh and extending for some 45 miles, allowing you to choose to head either east towards Blakeney, or west to Wells-Next-The-Sea. The area is a great all-year venue for bird-watchers and walkers alike. Travel to the nearby seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea, home to a bustling harbour, a sandy beach and welcoming taverns, promising memorable days out for the whole family. The award-winning beach of Holkham and Cley, home to the oldest Wildlife Trust nature reserve are well worth a visit, as are the market town of Holt and village of Burnham Market. There are many other attractions within the surrounding area to keep you busy including the historic Holkham Hall, Walsingham a place of pilgrimage since the 11th Century, Houghton Hall for regular art and sculpture exhibitions, plus Blickling Hall, North Norfolk Steam Railway and the royal household of Sandringham all within easy reach. With such a vast array of enjoyable walks, coastal scenery and places to visit on its doorstep, Stiffkey makes a wonderful base to enjoy a family holiday as well as being attractive to birdwatchers, cyclists and walkers all year round.
