Bourne Cottage is a gorgeous flint holiday rental in the pretty village of Weybourne. Perfect for a self-catering holiday on the Norfolk coast, it sleeps four people in two bedrooms and features a cosy wood-burning stove for warming yourself up after a windswept walk along the beach and a sheltered walled garden for lazy summer meals outside. The cottage is a stone's throw from the village pub, The Ship, and bursting with period features like solid oak beams. The owners have carefully protected its character while ensuring that it is very comfortable for modern couples and families.
Weybourne has a delightfully traditional atmosphere that can be a rarity amongst over-developed coastal towns and resorts. The shingle beach never feels busy or crowded, and guests have the option of going to nearby Wells and Sheringham beaches if they have an urge to build sandcastles and go swimming. There is still a thriving community of fishing boats you can see if you're up early enough. History buffs will be pleased to be within walking distance of the Muckleburgh Collection, the most significant military collection in the UK in private ownership. It's also an excellent location for train spotters as The Poppy Line stops at Weybourne train station.
Staying within the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty means you're never far from a beautiful walk, stunning cycle trail, or a breathtaking view. The village is a short, 10-minute walk from the beach, which is very shallow and great for skimming stones. Walk along the cliff for three miles to reach Sheringham, or take your binoculars and walk west to Cley and Salthouse Marshes, both havens for migrating birds. Sheringham Park is more than just a nice place for a walk as it's home to tiny muntjac deer, red foxes, brown hares, and curious stoats. You may also see grey seals, bottlenose dolphins and harbour porpoises along the coastal footpath.
Attractions and places to visit in North Norfolk include Cromer's 151-meter long pier, National Trust Felbrigg Hall, Bircham Windmill, the Watatunga Wildlife Reserve, beWILDerwood, the Royal Sandringham Estate, and Norfolk Lavender. The owners of Bourne Cottage use it as their coastal retreat, so you can trust that it is very comfortably furnished and equipped to welcome guests all year round.
