About Jonathan Izard

I am a psychotherapist with a busy private practice and a newsreader on the BBC World Service but I try to get to Sheringham as often as I can to relax and breathe the fresh sea air. But I'm happy for others to use Clover Cottage to enjoy all the charms and attractions of this very special part of the country.

Jonathan Izard purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Jonathan Izard chose Sheringham

As a child I spent all my summer holidays on the beach at Weybourne as my family would rent one of the coastguard cottages there. Consequently this part of the North Norfolk Coast has many happy memories for me. Clover Cottage belonged to my mother and used to be fairly basic but in the last couple of years we've improved it with new central heating, new kitchen, new bathroom, new windows and so on. It's now a lovely place to spend the odd weekend or midweek break with friends or alone. Whether walking on the cliffs in the wind, browsing in the shops, visiting nearby attractions or just sitting in the sunshine in the back garden with the Sunday papers, Sheringham is still a very special place. I hope you will love it as much as I and my family do.

What makes this cottage unique

Clover Cottage has off-street parking, which is rare for a cottage in this location. There is also a small, private back garden ideal for a barbecue or soaking up the sun. The beach is only 300 yards away, about a 2 minute walk. And the town centre, with its shops, theatre, cafes - and of course the steam train - is about 5 minutes away.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a drop in the back garden of approximately 3 feet, only partially guarded by lobster pots and plant pots. Toddlers should not be left unattended.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a brilliant stay in Clover cottage. It's 2 minutes walk to the beach and about 3 minutes walk to the centre of Sheringham.

The driveway and parking space is a massive bonus. The cottage is very well equipped, both inside and out, and the owner kept us well informed during every step of the booking process. We would definitely recommend this cottage to a couple or small family looking for an enjoyable stay at the seaside."

Perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Clover Cottage is a delightful, welcoming holiday home! Perfectly located only a few minutes from the sea with a friendly little cafe nearby too! Cottage has all you need, garden area for sitting out and the bonus of private parking! Didn't use the car all week! Took advantage of the train and steam train. Had great walks too by the sea to Cromer and Weybourne (certainly would recommend eating at The Ship in Weybourne). Thanks to Jonathan for his assistance throughout which helped make this holiday just right!

Cosy, bright,and comfortable in very good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Clover Cottage helped by the mediterranean weather for part of the week but would be good in any weather . Loved the.well stocked garden, the interesting book collection, and pretty decor. Quiet location away from the main bustle but very easy access to the beach, shops, cafes, and station (a short walk). The off road parking was also an asset. Hope to return and would recommend.

Owner's Response: I wish we could take credit for the weather! But we're glad you were lucky and had plenty of sunshine. So pleased you appreciated the cottage and the comforts we've tried to provide inside and out. Thanks for letting us know promptly about the faulty light - we've replaced it straightaway with a new one in time for next week's guests. We hope you'll come back to Clover Cottage again.

Perfect getaway in Sheringham

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Sheringham even the weather was good for late October.

Clover Cottage is a lovely clean and tidy well equipped house with good sized rooms and even has a nice quiet private garden. Ideally located a short walk from the beach, cafes, shops, museums, shell gallery and train station. Would recommend this holiday cottage to everyone and hope to get back again in 2017.

Home from home!

  • 5 of 5

Clover Cottage was a great base for us and our 9 month old as we caught up with family and reacquainted ourselves with beautiful North Norfolk.

The house was very homely, well equipped and in a perfect location, being only a short walk away from the beach and the town centre.

The private off road parking space off was really helpful, although most of our travelling during the holiday was done on foot, along the coast path, or riding on the steam train between Sheringham and Holt.

The owner was super efficient when it came to our booking and correspondence before and after our stay.

A cosy cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

On arrival you could tell the property was well looked after, clean, tidy and full of personal cosy touches.

The cottage is in a great location very close to the beach and all the amenities in the town centre yet far enough away for it not to be noisy at night. Sheringham itself is in a great location, we used the train on a few occasions visiting Holt, Cromer and Wroxham and drove the short journey to Well Next The Sea to visit the beach as well as travelling a little further about 50 mins to Sandringham and The Sealife Centre in Hunstanton

We had 4 adults and a one year old in our party and although described as a cottage we found we had plenty of room for us all, fitting a travel cot at the end of the double bed in the front bedroom.

From start to finish the owner Jonathan was very helpful with our booking and I would certainly recommend a visit to Sheringham and Clover Cottage
