Originally two fishermen’s cottages built in the 1850’s, Cuckoo Cottage now blends character and comfort in one in this newly refurbished holiday home in Blakeney village. With beams, pamment floors and cosy interiors, a striking feature at the centre of the cottage is the double sided wood burner – perfect for warming up after a winter walk across the marsh! The upstairs layout will suit families well with interlinked bedrooms and bathroom; the bathroom has a beautiful view from its window across the marshes to the sea beyond. Located just moments from the village centre and some stunning coastal walks you can also catch the ever-popular Coast Hopper bus near to the cottage, which will take you anywhere from Hunstanton to Cromer for perfect coastal cruising!

Blakeney with its harbour, marshes and stunning scenery is a hotspot for a great coastal holiday. Within easy walking distance of the cottage there are several places to eat; a local delicatessen, a general store and the North Norfolk Coastal path can be easily picked up, which is great for birdwatching and walking. The walk to Morston on the coastal path is just over a mile and with a lunch at The Anchor when you get there, it is a lovely way to spend the day, as is a trip to see the local seal colony at Blakeney Point. The village also has some interesting art galleries, gift shops and The Blakeney Harbour Rooms has a growing reputation for showcasing some good tribute bands. This stunning diverse coast is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are fantastic sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham with beautiful Holkham Hall and deer park also in the village, both a short drive away. In the summer visit Wiveton Hall - now a well-known landmark following the BBC's Normal for Norfolk programme. Stop in the cafe to admire the beautiful marsh views with a cup of tea and pick your own raspberries and strawberries from the fruit farm - it's all normal for Norfolk!

We have had a wonderful long weekend in your beautiful home. The little touches and attention to detail - especially for our dog and children did not go unnoticed. We wish we could stay longer. I have no doubts we will be back to stay again! Many thanks. The Pike Party - 25th November 2018
A delightful, well equipped cottage in a great location. The renovation has been tastefully done; very well equipped in terms of utensils, TV/radio etc. The welcome pack was a treat with local coffee, local jams and some basics to get us started. Very thoughful and a proper 'welcome'. Mr James Gray - 8th November 2018
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. Cuckoo Cottage is in an excellent location close to Blakeney village and quay (about 5 minutes walk) We have enjoyed walks to Morston, Cley and beyond; lunches and dinners in The Anchor and White Horse and visits to Cromer. North Norfolk is a favourite but being able to stay in such a well-appointed and characterful cottage was a bonus. Thank you for the welcome pack including the dog treats, which went well with our dog. Hope to return.James, Christine & Tiffy - 6th November 2018
We have stayed in Blakeney several times in various cottages but Cuckoo Cottage is one of the best. Everything is supplied to make this a home from home from ultra soft towels to dog biscuits. We hope to return. With thanks.The Millers - 3rd November 2018
Thank you for a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. Very comfortable and beautifully decorated with brilliant location. We enjoyed Holkham Beach, the walk to Blakeney Point and food at The Dun Cow is delicious. Many thanks.The Palmer Party - 27th October 2018
Wow! What a fantastic cottage. We have had a wonderful time. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and I love the marmalade! The treats for Lottie, our Border Collie, were very much appreciated as she wouldn't eat anything else. We have walked her (and our) legs off in this beautiful location and are now going home for a rest! Thank you.Micheala and Sharon - 14th October 2018
I really enjoyed my stay at Cuckoo Cottage. It was lovely to arrive, to see that coffee, tea and milk was all on hand. Even the dog didn’t miss out with some treats left for him too. Miss Laura Turner - 9th October 2018
What a wonderful cottage, in a great location. Hilary and Andrew have provided everything you can think of that you might need for your stay. Watson, my labradoodle, enjoyed his treats and wanted to take the bed home with him! Holkham and Wells beach were stunning. Grey Seal Coffee, in Blakeney, does a mean cappuccino and the Kings Arms do the largest portion of fish and chips I have ever seen. Thank you for such a wonderful stay in such a cosy and well equipped cottage. Laura T - 7th October 2018
Enjoyed the cottage very much, great welcoming pack provided. Free parking very close to the cottage and good public transport.J Stretton - 1st October 2018
We've had such a wonderful tome here at Cuckoo Cottage and have enjoyed exploring the beautiful local areas with our Monty dog! The cottage is cosy, comfortable and had everything we could have wanted. Four nights hasn't been long enough - we look forward to the next visit! Jo, Matt and Monty - 29th September 2018
We have had such a wonderful stay in Cuckoo Cottage. Perfect location for beautiful walks with the dog and a few pub lunches. Cottage has everything we needed for the dog! Highly recommend Holkham beach and Temples seal trip. Thank you, we are already thinking about our next trip here.Laura & Ryan - 15th September 2018
So pleased we found your wonderful cottage. We have had a great few days with the dog. Perfect cottage with all the bits you need. Thank youThe Bartholomew Party - 8th September 2018
We've had a wonderful time in your lovely cottage. Perfect location for reliving my own childhood memories with my very young son (3.5 months). Thank you for providing such a comfortable home from home - loved the little touches for the dog and the very soft towels. Seal trip and Wells beach are a must do! We hope to return soon.The Burton Family - 4th September 2018
Dear Hilary and Andrew, Thank you for all of the wonderful bits you left for us. We had a wonderful stay at Cuckoo Cottage. We found everything that we needed. The Dunne Family - 25th August 2018
We had a wonderful break in your delightful cottage. It's certainly very comfortable here and every comfort has been considered - down to an incredibly well-equipped kitchen (in which one could even bake if desired!). The position could not have been better - our son has enjoyed an evening stroll to the park for the zip wire, the spar is very convenient for supplies (without the complication of trying to park), the distances to spectacular beaches has been short and on those rainy days, so typical of British summer, we've enjoyed relatively short drives to Castle Rising and Norwich. Thank you so much! We will certainly return. The Dahan Party - 12th August 2018
