Condo/Apartment
Peaceful, secluded first floor apartment in lovely period house, a cosy and comfortable hideaway perfect for couples. Ample private off road parking, garden and summerhouse, free high speed wifi. Excellent location, just a 10 minute stroll from Sheringham's beach, shops and restaurants, coast path, steam railway and Coasthopper bus, and perfectly placed for exploring the beautiful North Norfolk coast. The apartment is self contained, with its own front door on the first floor landing of the main house. It's a quirky space, full of character, quiet and peaceful, with views of the garden, clifftop golf course and smoke plumes as the steam trains puff by. From the apartment's entrance hall, steps lead down to the light, airy combined living space / dining kitchen.

From the apartment's entrance hall, steps lead down to the light, airy combined living space / dining kitchen. Leather sofa and flatscreen tv, new, bespoke handmade kitchen with fridge/freezer compartment, microwave and small oven, and dining table by the window. Pretty vintage style bedroom with ensuite shower room. Luxurious double bed, deep pocket sprung mattress, goose feather quilt and Egyptian cotton bedlinen. Dressing table, ample clothes storage and a cosy armchair in the window. Local interest books, walking guides and maps, fiction library, games, and our own information booklet. Lawned south facing guest garden (shared with our ground floor apartment) with plenty of seating and tables, and a pretty summerhouse with comfy chairs. Good, easily accessed off- street parking on the drive (many guests leave the car here all week, walk or take the Coasthopper bus or train). All heating, electricity, bedlinen and towels included. Bed made up, and tea, coffee, fresh milk and Norfolk fruit cake provided for your arrival. No smoking, no dogs. Unsuitable for those with restricted mobility. Open Easter-October. Magnolia Cottage also offers a spacious ground floor apartment, Stables, which is completely level, sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms, and is open all year. Magnolia Cottage is our home; we look after both apartments ourselves and take pride in ensuring they are beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Around half our bookings come from regular guests, many returning year after year. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you require any further information. We look forward to meeting you!More

About the neighbourhood
For centuries a remote fishing station, Sheringham became an Edwardian summer retreat with the arrival of the railway. The fishing quarter, with its flint and pebble cottages, remains at the heart of the town. Sheringham today is a small, old-fashioned seaside town, set amongst cliffs and rolling National Trust woodland, excellent walking country. The high street runs down to the sea and has a lovely selection of friendly, independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Attractions include the Blue Flag beach, Poppy Line steam railway, the Little Theatre and a fine coastal golf course, all just an easy stroll away. Sheringham Park (National Trust), landscaped by Humphrey Repton, offers beautiful walks and sea views, and there are miles of beach, clifftop and country walks from the front door....
Getting around
Public transport here is unusually good and Magnolia Cottage is very conveniently placed. Half hourly buses to Holt and Cromer run past the house. The excellent Coasthopper bus, which runs along the entire North Norfolk coast, stopping at every village, is a 5 minute walk away, as is the Norwich bus. The Poppy Line steam railway is just round the corner, and the Bittern Line train to Norwich, connecting to London Liverpool St, is a 10 min walk away. And of course there's walking: Sheringham itself, and miles of coast and country walks, from the door. Many of our guests just leave the car on the drive all week!
