Samphire Cottage is an enticing slice of Norfolk heaven. With space for eight people to sleep in four gorgeous bedrooms, the rural cottage is perfect for big families, extended families or a group of friends who want to stay somewhere that is peaceful yet still within easy reach of North Norfolk beaches and other popular attractions. National Trust’s Stiffkey Marshes are on the doorstep, and you can walk to the Stiffkey Red Lion pub and the village store in around 15 minutes.
Stiffkey's salt marshes are part of the Blakeney National Nature Reserves and managed by the National Trust. Not only are they a haven for a wide variety of birds and wildlife, but they are also a favourite place to walk, showcasing the Big Sky views for which coastal Norfolk is famous. The Norfolk Coastal Path goes through Stiffkey, providing incredible views in all seasons. It's possible to walk the same stretch twice on the same day and experience completely different conditions. Go crabbing, mud larking or paddling in the creek. A visit to the seaside is a must. The beach at Wells-next-the-Sea is five miles from the cottage, while Blakeney is even closer. Days out can involve a boat trip to see the local seals, playing a round of golf, beach or river fishing, cycling around quiet country lanes, or walking along designated footpaths through a landscape unspoiled by development.
Local attractions include the Sealife Centre in Hunstanton, Sheringham Park, Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, Holt Country Park, Langham Glass, and the Norfolk Shire Horse Centre. The Victorian seaside resort of Hunstanton is around a 45-minute drive from the cottage, as is the Royal Sandringham Estate and the Norfolk Lavender Farm. Go shopping in Kings Lynn or discover the traditional charm of the Burnhams.
Samphire Cottage is available for holiday bookings all year round.
