Sunny Dene Cottage can accommodate up to six guests (but five in comfort) and enjoys an idyllic position in the peaceful village of Knapton just a mile and a half from Mundesley. A true gem on the Norfolk coast, Mundesley has a glorious award winning sandy beach, pubs, cafes, a maritime museum and beautiful windmill. Offering all the right ingredients for a relaxing holiday, the cottage enjoys a quiet position with only the sound of bird song to wake you, yet it is within easy reach by car (or foot) of a host of amenities and attractions including one of Norfolk's finest beaches.
Once a farm building, Sunny Dene Cottage is as pretty inside as it is out, and has been lovingly presented by its owners to provide everything needed for a memorable relaxing holiday. The interior is quirky and quaint, offering a lovely mix of vintage blended with modern conveniences to ensure a high standard of comfort.
Perfect for families, friends and couples who appreciate a little extra space around them, the cottage is cosy with a log burner for winter breaks and a patio where you can soak up the countryside whilst alfresco dining. There are fabulous walks straight from the front door and quiet leafy lanes for those who enjoy cycling. Explore the Paston Way, tackle the Weaver's Way (accessible three miles away at North Walsham) or a ramble to the beach at Mundesley, Walcott or Bacton and stroll along the promenade with an ice cream or enjoy fish and chips as the sun sets. Let the little ones build sandcastles until their hearts are content on Mundesley's glorious beach; take a boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point or head to Cromer (with its magnificent pier) or Sheringham for some Edwardian seaside fun. For those who enjoy arts and crafts, Sunny Dene is surrounded by inspirational countryside which makes it ideal for a painting or a quilting holiday. There are quilting supply shops in the area and the garden room is perfect for creative activities.
Children will love a day at BeWilderwood or Wroxham Barns, and the Bure Valley Railway and National Trust properties of Sheringham Park and Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall provide pleasure for all ages. Browse the antique shops and boutiques in Holt, a Georgian town full of charm (and tea rooms!) or enjoy a long leisurely lunch in one of the many great pubs or restaurants with a particular favourite of the owners being the Vernon Arms in the village of Southrepps.
The choices are endless, whether you simply want to relax and soak up the tranquility or get out and about discovering Norfolk's many delights.
