Avocet Cottages is perfection with a picket fence. The Norfolk holiday home is on a quiet residential street in the coastal village of Snettisham, a few minutes walk from a small supermarket, bistro, newly opened cafe/restaurant and two pubs - the award winning Rose and Crown and also the Queen Victoria. It's well suited to families as it sleeps five people in three bedrooms with two bathrooms and an enclosed garden but equally suited to couples as the owner offers a couples discount. The location is ideal in all seasons, close to the beaches and attractions that make Norfolk a favourite holiday destination for all ages.
Snettisham is on the western side of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking The Wash. Everything you need for a self-catering holiday is within strolling distance. You can buy ingredients to cook at home or pick up some freshly fried fish and chips for a relaxed dinner in the garden. Snettisham is well known for its stunning RSPB nature reserve, a beautiful place for a scenic walk. You'll always be able to orientate yourself using the spire on the village church of St Mary's, which is 175 feet high and dates from 1340. There's also a popular loop from the village and back through woodland. Snettisham Park is a 10-minute walk away, with a thriving deer herd and regular deer safari.
King's Lynn is 20 minutes by car, and you can get to Norwich in just over an hour for sightseeing, shopping and dining out. Other places to visit for interesting shops, cafes and restaurants include Burnham Market and Holt. As well as beaches like Holkham, Holme and Brancaster, you can spend a day at the seaside at Cromer, Sheringham and Wells. Local attractions include Sandringham Royal Estate, Castle Rising, Houghton Hall and Gardens, Norfolk Lavender, and Bircham Windmill.
Avocet Cottage is child-friendly, and well-behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement. Cyclists and mountain bikers can bring their bikes and store them securely in the summer house. Bookings are available all year round.
