About Cleat Cottage

Cleat Cottage is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the North Norfolk Coast. The traditional flint holiday cottage enjoys sea views and is in the quiet hamlet of Cockthorpe. It is ideal for couples or families as it sleeps up to five people in two bedrooms with well-behaved dogs also welcome. It's only a few miles from Wells-next-the-Sea and close to Stiffkey, Morston, and Blakeney. If you're searching for a holiday home in Norfolk that is spacious, quiet, and convenient for the coast, you'll be delighted with your choice of Cleat Cottage.

Cockthorpe is tiny, with only a handful of houses and far-reaching views over fields and the surrounding countryside. It has a small church believed to date from the 11th Century. There's a lovely 5.5 mile route from the village towards the marshes at Morston, managed by the National Trust, and following the Norfolk Coast National Trail with views towards Blakeney Point. It's also possible to walk to Stiffkey and Binham. Stiffkey Fen is good for birdwatching, and there are ruins of a Benedictine Priory in Binham.

Wells-next-the-Sea is around five miles from Cleat Cottage. It has a good variety of independent shops, cafes, and pubs, as well as some familiar High Street names. Like the rest of the North Norfolk Coast, Wells beach is stunning, with soft sand and colourful beach huts. The beach is part of the enormous 25,000 acre Holkham Estate, including the magnificent Holkham Hall, the white sands of Holkham Beach, and a vast national nature reserve that is home to a plethora of birds and wildlife. You can go sailing at Blakeney, or play golf at Sheringham or Royal Cromer courses. Just four miles away is the well known Cley Wildlife Trust bird reserve and visitor centre. Other attractions on the North Norfolk Coast include Amazona Zoo, SEA LIFE Hunstanton, beWILDerwood, the Sandringham Estate, Cromer Pier, Norfolk Lavender, Titchwell RSPB Bird reserve and Wroxby Barns.

The North Norfolk Coast is a holiday destination you can enjoy in any season. It's fantastic in summer but equally lovely in cold weather when the beaches are empty, and the big sky views are nothing short of spectacular. Cleat Cottage is available for holiday bookings all year round.
