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!


Thank you! We've had a great few days and will look forward to returning! Thanks again! - The Ttoffali family

Past Customer,

Came away for our 48th Wedding Anniversary. The cottage had everything we needed, and the extra treat of the welcome pack was much appreciated. Despite being nearly blown off our feet every day, we enjoyed lovely walks to Cley and Morston and then from Wells to Holkham

Margaret R,

We've had a fabulous stay in your lovely cottage. Everything we needed was here and the welcome pack was very much appreciated. We've enjoyed great walks, lovely pubs and your comfortable and cosy cottage. We'll definitely be back !

Andrew B,

Just to say thank you very much for our stay in your lovely cottage. We have had a superb break and your cottage is the absolute perfect base in many ways, couldn't have wished for better. We hope to return some time soon!

Elaine S,

It's been lovely staying here at Cuckoo Cottage. We had really good weather (very lucky). The cottage is just what we were looking for, all the mod cons but sill loads of character. Getting the coastal bus to Wells and walking back to Blakeney was wonderful. Good food at the King's Arms.

Kate H,

Happy New Year! Thank you the cottage was perfect for us - we keep returning to this part of Norfolk and will happily & comfortably stay at Cuckoo Cottage again. There were 1000s of seal pups on at Blakeney Point a great trip on New Year's Day. We enjoyed a couple of meals at The Bluebell at Langham - Great pub and food - thanks for the recommendation. Enjoyed some of our favourite places / walks - Holt, Cley, Cromer, Wells & Holkham. We were so lucky with the weather - wild and big blue skies. Thank you again and warm regards.

The Martin Party,

Beautiful cottage, very comfortable and clean. Lovely bedding and soft towels. Enjoyed the log burner, the Christmas decorations and thank you for the welcome tray. Very well equipped kitchen - perfect for Christmas dinner. Lovely area - The Temples seal trips are well worth a visit - quite an experience seals, birdlife and land/seascape. Our first trip to Norfolk - had a very enjoyable week. Thank you.

Sally & A,

We had a great weekend in a fantastic cottage. Excellent setup and facilities and a super location. We will be back!

The M Party,

Thank you for everything, especially for the marmalade, coffee and cereals! (V useful when i thought I'd have more time to stop on Friday...) It was a great stay and v comfy beds!

Previous Customer,

A really lovely week in a great cottage - all the comfort s we could think of. Glorious walks & bird watching. One wet day so we took the train from Sheringham to Norwich, a city well worth a visit. Spar in Blakeney great, but Picnic Faye in Cley had some real treats. Thank you for sorting the WiFi so quickly, been perfect since. An excellent holiday.

The T Family,

We had a lovely week here - one day of rain but otherwise good. Weather perfect for long walks on the beaches and over the marshes. We have been to this area many times and never fail to be impressed by the scenery and atmosphere. Nice cottage ! Well equipped and the welcome pack very much appreciated.

David F,

Quite simply, everything we could wish for in a holiday cottage. Very well equipped, clean and tidy and a lovely location. Thank you so much for making our stay so good.

Stephanie S,

We have had a lovely holiday and thank you so much for the wine, delicious jam/marmalade, coffee and everything else you left for us. So kind of you. The cottage is lovely, so beautifully clean and comfortable and so well equipped. Thank you very much again.

Previous Customer,

Thank you very much. We always had a good sleep and enough space for us all. Also not being too far away from places - so we could do a lot of activities everyday was wonderful. Thank you.

The D Party,

We had a great stay. Great sleeps everynight. Thank you for the dog treats and the breakfast tray.

Edith S,

We have had a wonderful time, everything is perfect, and I am sure we will return. Many thanks.

Grant M,

We've had a lovely stay in your beautiful cottage. We had a great dinner out in the courtyard - what a sun trap. The bed is so comfy, we had a great night's sleep. We really appreciated the local touches like the delicious coffee. The location is just perfect and such a pleasant surprise to find the coastal path out the back. Hopefully be back soon.

Ellie & J,

Thank you for the welcome gifts. Lovely cottage, comfy beds, linen & towels. Very cosy. Lots of lovely walks around. Seal trip was the highlight of the week. Holt is a lovely town, worth a visit, same as Wells Beach - would be lovely on a warm day.

The G Party,

Lovely week in this comfortable cottage. Perfect base for touring the area visiting several National Trust properties. Holkham beach never loses its appeal. Thank you for the welcome tray! We would love to come back.

Deborah S,

Blakeney and Cuckoo Cottage are both delightful and charming, and we've had a lovely time here. The cottage is very comfortable and clean with everything considered for a great stay. We enjoyed the local produce left for us. There is so much to see in the area and this cottage has been the perfect base. Many thanks.

The O'Connell Family,

Very dog friendly, roomy & attractive property

Mrs Judith T,

Lovely cottage with all the amenities. Very well equipped with lovely towels. We thoroughly enjoyed our week of walking, eating, drinking and chilling. Teddy ( the dog) loved the bed and treats and needed plenty of sleeps after all the walking.

Judith and M,

Couldn't have picked a better location, perfect for dog walks and great for touring the area. The cottage has been beautifully renonvated and lots of lovely details make it a very comfortable and homely place to stay. Arlo our dog loved his biscuits and bed and didn't want to leave. Enjoyed seal trip with Bishop's Boats (very friendly helping my husband get on board). Picnic Fayre in Cley is worth stopping at for some food treats - pear and ginger cake is gorgeous. Brancaster beach was wonderful for a bit of swimming (dog not us). Thank you Andrew for calling round to check all ok after contacting Hillary about the door. Want to come back when weather not so good to use the woodburner!

Previous Customer,

It was a lovely property with everything we expected. The description made clear the details of the property prior to booking. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything we could have ever needed. The little extra touches on arrival were very much appreciated. Wonderful location, close to the centre of Blakeney for a very reasonable price.

Mr Tim C,

Perfect little cottage, you have thought of everything from the dog treats to the Easter eggs ( the children were very happy) and a very well stocked kitchen. Our highlights were Bewilderwood, fantastic day out for children and adults. Norfolk Railway, Pensthorpe, crabbing at Blakeney and seal trip with Bishops boats. Coming "home" to this cosy cottage has been brilliant. Thank you

Cadman family,

We enjoyed our short stay in Cuckoo Cottage - comfortable and warm and in a great location. We only had one wet day so we were lucky with the weather. Thank you for the welcome pack and special thanks from our labrador for the treats.
