Sunset – Stylish coastal cottage with sea view in Norfolk
If you are after an uninterrupted sea view, and have always wanted to fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves, look no further. This fabulous coastal retreat has it all – stylish, contemporary upside down living that maximises the magnificent cliff top views and a landscaped garden with a private gate that opens straight onto the coastal path. Sunset is an absolute winner and most definitely a top Norfolk hideaway.
You will find Sunset peacefully tucked away at the end of a private unmade road, just off the road to the beach; it’s detached, rather striking and sits just behind the coastal path that runs along the cliffs above the sea. Built in the 1930s, the house was upgraded in recent years to a smart modern house with open-plan living on the first floor, where the addition of bi-fold doors opening onto a glazed balcony terrace really emphasises your closeness to the sea – you can not only hear it but also taste its saltiness from the comfort of your armchair. Who needs a television with that view but, of course, there is one, and it’s Smart with Sky too, as well as all the other mod cons and comforts to complete your holiday – a fully fitted well-equipped kitchen and adjoining dining area – along with the convenience of an upstairs cloakroom. The sleeping accommodation is all on the ground floor. Three individually designed bedrooms (a private master king-size suite, with doors to the garden, a further king-size and a double room), along with a shower room. There’s a very spacious utility room downstairs too, with laundry facilities and cloakroom off, handy for when you come in from a day on the beach. The landscaped garden that meanders down to the coastal path is a lovely place to spend a quiet afternoon relaxing and reading – you can retire to the summerhouse if there’s a keen sea breeze or if it’s a tad too warm to sit out – and equally to share a bottle of wine as the sun goes down.
Sunset is undoubtedly a very special holiday destination, that will be enjoyed by all; couples and friends, as well as families and, once visited, we feel sure you will return again and again. Overstrand is a peaceful and rather elegant coastal village just a few miles south of Cromer, and has the benefit of a soft sandy beach, excellent local amenities, a popular beach top cafe and fresh seafood shop – all within a short walking distance. Stretch your legs and take the scenic coastal path to Cromer, which passes by the links of Cromer’s prestigious Golf Club. Arriving in Cromer, you can choose to take a stroll around the shops, grab a coffee and watch the world go by and perhaps take a seat on the pier. Or maybe treat yourself to a fresh crab sandwich or fish and chips at Number One (the best!), and then meander slowly back along the beach at low tide.
