It is a perfect retreat for couples, ideally placed to explore the local marshes, coastal path and beautiful beaches of the North Norfolk coast. A short walk along a footpath which borders the River Stiffkey will take you to the village inn well known locally for serving Stiffkey mussels and if you venture a little further, the villages stores has a good selection of local produce and you can also enjoy a coffee in the courtyard.

The coastal village of Stiffkey is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has one of the richest saltmarshes for wildlife in the country, providing excellent opportunities for both ornithology and walking. The sandy beaches at Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea are just four miles along the coast and sailing is available at nearby Morston and Blakeney. Stiffkey has a well-renowned village shop and a pub which serves food, with further amenities available in the lovely Georgian town of Holt, which is eight miles away


A bit quirky and very compact, but I found Poppy Cottage to be comfortable and well-located. It is set back behind a row of cottages, so does not front the main road. Surprisingly quiet for the location.

Mr W,

A lovely property in a good location. It is close to the salt marshes and the North Norfolk Coastal Path. Stiffkey is beautiful small village and is close to other places of interest.

Ms De M,
