About Samphire Cottage

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.

Accommodation Comprises:

Rustic charm meets contemporary comforts at Samphire Cottage to provide a light, spacious and exceptionally comfortable holiday home with accommodation over two levels.

  • Sunny open-plan kitchen diner with glazed French doors at either end of the room opening onto east and west-facing decks. Solid wood flooring suits the country-cottage decor, which is enhanced by the traditional dresser and pine dining table. The kitchen is fitted with efficient appliances that make quick work of cooking. There is lots of room to store food, a modern range cooker, a dishwasher, and all of the equipment and utensils you will need for cooking and serving delicious meals for your family and friends.
  • Like the kitchen/diner, the lounge also has French doors that open onto the deck and garden. There's a log burner for cosy warmth in winter, comfortable seating, a TV with Freeview channels, and a choice of family-friendly games for screen-free fun.
  • Double bedroom with glass doors that open onto the west-facing verandah. The stylish bed has matching bedside tables and reading lights.
  • Bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin. It is next to the double bedroom and works well for giving grandparents their own space on a multi-generational holiday.


  • Master bedroom with solid wood floors, a very comfortable kingsize bed, bedside tables with reading lights, and space for a proper wooden cot. French doors open onto a Juliet balcony with beautiful views.
  • 'Jack and Jill' ensuite shared between the master bedroom and the twin bedroom. It has a shower, WC and a handbasin. The doors from each bedroom into the bathroom are fire doors and provide complete privacy.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized (3ft-wide) single beds, a bedside table with a reading light, and proper storage.
  • Bunk room with full-sized single bunks suitable for children or adults. The window overlooks the rear garden.

Outside: Samphire Cottage has an enclosed garden with lawn and some hedging and a barbecue and seating area. There are east and west facing covered decks so that you can move with the sun. The cottage has off-street parking.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, a basket of logs for the wood burner, and bed linen area all included. Guests to provide bath towels, beach towels and cot bedding. Two well-behaved dogs are welcome through prior arrangement. Short breaks are possible outside of peak season, depending on availability. Smoking is not permitted.
