About us

Melinda Cottage, was originally built as a fisherman’s cottage, and is the  perfect base for couples or families looking to enjoy a peaceful holiday with all the coastal benefits nearby, whether its building sand castles on our blue flag beach with the children, or paddling and swimming in the sea.

The cottage is just 2 minutes walk from the beach, local shops, pubs and restaurant.  There are plenty of nearby walks and golf courses to test your skills!!

Cromer is famous for its Cromer crabs, so be sure to indulge yourself, whilst Sheringham is home to the North Norfolk steam railway and a superb selection of local shops, bars and restaurants.

Explore the harbours and beaches at Wells and Blakeney and book a boat trip to see the famous seal colony at Morston, or indulge in a spot of birdwatching at the RSPB reserve at Titchwell Marsh, or the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Reserve at near by Cley.

The National Trust properties of Felbrig Hall and Bickling are nearby and plenty of family activities in neighboring Cromer, Sheringham, Holt and Blakeney. You could also choose the Norfolk Broads or Norwich for a day out.

North Norfolk is just waiting to be explored, and you can discover it all from this fabulous Norfolk coastal cottage.

Your dog will enjoy the enclosed garden and the thoughtful treats the owners leave for him or her!
