About the property

Sleeps 6 in two doubles and one twin, sunny private garden, all mod cons.

Situated on the village common, complete with pond & ducks, Green Cottage is a pretty, detached flint cottage, recently renovated. As you enter the front door, the newly-fitted spacious kitchen leads through to the open plan dining room. Old beams, crisp cotton linens and fresh flowers will welcome you to this charming traditional fishermans cottage. The large lounge has comfy sofas around the fireplace and a sunny window seat, reached from the dining room. Beyond this, is the cozy TV room. The lounge also has a door out to the private garden.

Off the main hall is the third bedroom, snug, light and airy, and also the downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs, the main (kingsize) bedroom, with its old fireplace and exposed beams, looks out over the garden. A big wardrobe in the eaves provides plenty of space for storage, suitcases etc. Next door, the twin bedroom and the spacious bathroom (with full-size bath and large, separate walk-in shower) provide plenty of family space and comfort

Beautiful property in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a colleague supported a gentleman with Autism for his holiday. This property was ideal for him, as was the location. The Beach was beautiful and only a 5 min walk away. 10 mins away in West Runton was The Shire Horse Sanctuary which was amazing and worth a visit. We took him on a Seal Watching trip from Morton Quay to Blakeney Point which is only a 1/2hr journey from the property. A must for everyone. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at RockyBottom restaurant on the clifftop on the way to West Runton. Delicious crab and lobster. Cromer Zoo is about 9mins away, small but perfect for the gentleman we supported. Val and her colleague Sam made us feel very welcome, with milk and a bottle of wine. The property was very comfortable and well maintained. Would recommend to anyone. We all had an amazing holiday.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Green Cottage over the bank holiday weekend. The cottage is perfectly positioned for a short walk to the quiet beach and all the village has to offer. East Runton is picturesque with two pubs and a fish and chip shop. All were tried and tested by us and got the thumbs up. The Dozy Doormouse was the favourite.

The cottage itself is gorgeous, with all the mod cons. There is everything you need if you want to stay in and cook. Our party of 5 found it very spacious, with comfy beds and a great family sized bathroom. The enclosed back garden was great for a game of football and the large dining room table was perfect for family game night. Val was great to work with and made us all feel very welcome. We will definitely be back!

A most characterful beautifully renovated cottage

  • 5 of 5

A surprise to find the front door facing the back garden but soon realised that this was just perfect providing us with a private patio to eat al fresco and a lovely lawn. The cosy, tasteful, contemporary and spacious open plan interior was superb for family life. The TV snug a special bonus. A lovely blend of modernity and character throughout. The village location was perfect with shops, pubs, beach and village pond all within minutes walking distance. We and our family enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. The owner was kind and helpful and we were welcomed with wine and flowers.

Idyllic, peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Visited Green Cottage with my daughter and her two little boys. Super layout of house for couples , families with young children with or without Granny! Snug/TV room for little ones to keep toys etc.and a lovely spacious feel to the rest of the house. Lovely size sitting room and dining area. Don't feel pictures and description did the house justice. Perfect enclosed garden, totally safe. 10 minutes wander to the beach, even at snail's pace! Well equipped with workable kitchen for those liking to cook. Beautifully appointed and spacious - only criticism would be that two of the three bedrooms need chests of drawers or usable wardrobes. Owners cheerfully replaced the travelling cot that refused to be erected. Lots to see and do within short distance and can't wait for an excuse to return - with or without little ones.

Winter escape

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and very nicely decorated. It was nice to have a few days there as a winter break. We enjoyed walking along the beach at Holkham and East Runton. As a couple we had plenty of room to spread out but it would be lovely for a family. We would thoroughly recommend this property on the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
