5 Church Lane
Titchwell, Norfolk, UK
IntroductionNestled along a quiet lane just off the coast road, 5 Church Lane is a traditional style Chalk and Brick cottage that has been thoughtfully renovated with comfort, quality and sustainability in mind using local skilled artisans and craftspeople, and Norfolk based companies. There are pretty views down to St Mary’s church at the end of the lane – one of Norfolk’s famous round tower churches – and big sky views across to the marshes from the west facing garden. From the house you can walk to the most secluded part of Brancaster beach, perfect for sundowners in the evening, or walk from there to see the seals on Titchwell beach.
If you are looking for places to eat, you are just a short walk to three renowned restaurants: Titchwell Manor and Briarfields within the village, or The Ship a little further along in the neighbouring village of Brancaster. There is also lots to see and do in neighbouring Thornham, where there are several further places to eat, and the market town of Burnham Market is just 10 minutes away. The famous RSPB Titchwell Marsh is just a stone’s throw away – Marsh Harriers, Avocets, Bitterns and Bearded Tits are often seen and heard from the garden.
InsideThe owners made conscious decisions to be as eco-friendly as possible when designing and furnishing the house, with many of the soft furnishings and furniture, including rugs, cushions and bedding made from recycled plastic bottles (which are soft as a feather!), and all curtains and blinds crafted using surplus designer fabrics from the interiors industry that would otherwise have gone to waste. They have also tried further to be kind to the planet by using vintage and antique furniture where possible, that is a mix of inherited pieces and auction finds, providing character and interest. With a keen eye for detail, they have also added additional thoughtful touches by providing Roberts Radios, a good selection of board games and books for both adults and children, as well as buckets and spades that guests can borrow for the beach.
Sleeping up to six guests in three bedrooms and offering off-road parking, a large, enclosed garden, cosy lounge and a sociable kitchen/diner, this family friendly house is ideal for all seasons – a perfect beach house in summer, and a cosy retreat in the winter.
Please note that while this property does not accept dogs, the owner does bring their own dog to the property when they stay.
OutsideAt the front of the property there is a gravel driveway providing off-road parking for two cars, and bistro style seating on the lawn to enjoy your coffee in the morning sun.
To the rear of the property there is a large, enclosed garden with a paved patio offering al fresco dining, with a table and chairs and a charcoal BBQ available in the summer months. There is also a hose for washing those sandy toes after a day on the beach. The spacious lawn area is perfect for the children to safely play while the parents can enjoy a moment to chill and put their feet up on the property’s comfy deck chairs! Here you can also take in the spectacular views across the field to the dunes and out to sea, and as the garden is west facing you can enjoy beautiful sunsets over Titchwell marshes – what better setting on a warm summers evening!

Quick guide to your locationMap Link
Very stylish and comfortable cottage. It was very impressive, immaculate and we had a very nice welcome pack. The master bed was a wow! We had a lovely time over the four days and enjoyed the peacefulness of the area. The beach walk from Old Hunstanton to Holme-Next-The-Sea was beautiful and although we were very lucky with the weather, it would have been great in all weathers. There is a lovely small church near the cottage worth a visit and two very nice local restaurants. If you want to book Titchfield Manor do so early as it fills up quickly. We ate at Briarfields which was very good and the staff were very pleasant. Both within walking distance but take a torch as there is no street lighting. Eric’s fish and chips is worth a visit and I had my first battered mars bar…gooey and lovely. Burnham Market and Holt were lively and smart villages to visit with good shops. Would recommend this cottage!
