You might expect the former home of the master of the Cutty Sark to be a little special, and it is, with sumptuous fittings, terrific creek views and a central location in a timeless Norfolk village.
This creek-facing holiday property is the majestic former home of the master of the Cutty Sark. It enjoys pride of place in the stunning coastal village of Burnham Overy Staithe. Relax in light-filled rooms or bask in the garden, before taking to the creekside walks that will give your pup a real taste for seaside air.
The property is a pretty and unusual country house. Discover the warm, inviting lounge with views over the creek — it’s the perfect haunt for relaxers, readers, and chatters alike. The kitchen is a sweet space equipped with everything you may need to rustle up a dinner fit for a sea captain, and you can head through to the friendly dining room to enjoy it in style. Your bedrooms begin on the ground floor with a special twin room, including a pair of French doors leading out to the garden. Upstairs, a king-size room makes a restful hideaway and a bunk bedroom is perfect for younger members of the family. Head outside and you’ll probably find your dog enjoying the rolling lawns. Watch her zoom around while you relax on one of the picnic tables with an al fresco snack.
Burnham Overy Staithe is a characterful village. Stroll down a sand-edged path through the dunes, past salt marshes, to a lovely secluded beach. Your dog will love racing down here in the morning. And then head to one of the lovely dog-friendly pubs in the neighbouring village of Burnham Market, 2 miles away. Explore the sweeping shoreline of the North Norfolk Coast by foot or by car. Try Blakeney, for a vibrant seaside town set beside an interesting natural wildlife reserve, 12 miles from the house.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
