This cottage has been cleverly and imaginatively furnished using antique retro finds and statement pieces making this a truly unique and quirky cottage.
With its gorgeous pink exterior and funky interior, plus large enclosed garden, we think you might just fall in love with this little hideaway. Character and charm are in abundance and following a recent refurbishment, it has been completely transformed, providing stylish and comfortable holiday accommodation for six in three bedrooms.
The kitchen/diner has been beautifully styled and you can enjoy early morning breakfast’s at the table with the bi-fold doors open onto the patio area during the warmer months. Alternatively open up the front stable door and enjoy a morning coffee with the papers sitting on the sunny front terrace.
You’ll love the wooden heated floors underfoot, particularly if you’ve been out for a long walk and you want to warm your toes!
On an evening, sink into the comfy sofas or dive into the coffee table books, while you put your feet up with a cup of tea. You also have full use of Netflix.
The children will just adore finding the pretend ‘mousehole’ in the property and the quirky staircase banister than turns ‘climbing the stairs to bed’, a really fun experience! Programme the colour depending on your mood!

While the day away with day trips to the sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea with its fabulous beach huts or to Holkham. A visit to Holkham Estate is a must, where you will find restaurants, tea rooms, an open air theatre in the summer and of course the beautiful house. The Wells and Walsingham light railway is also definitely worth a visit being the longest narrow guage steam railway in the world, or board a boat from Morston to Blakeney Point to see the seals and learn about their natural habitat.
Take a leisurely walk or bike ride to the nearby village of Walsingham where you can enjoy a visit to Walsingham Abbey, the fantastic Walsingham Farm Shop, where you can buy your supper and lots more! Order a good Norfolk supper at The Black Lion pub and enjoy a local ale before retreating to your luxury ‘pink’ retreat after hours!. If you are visiting in Spring, a trip to see the snowdrops in the Abbey grounds is a sight to behold. If you fancy getting on your bike and heading in the other direction then ride into Burnham Market where you’ll find a plethora of cafe’s, boutique shops and foodie shops to browse around. If you want to hire bikes during your stay, then just give Barefoot a call and we’ll arrange for them to be delivered to the cottage.
If you’re looking to get all dressed-up for dinner and fancy pushing the boat out, then head over to the fabulous Michelin-starred restaurants in Old Hunstanton or Morston. Fancy a more relaxed dining experience, then head to The Globe, Bang! at the top of Staithe Street or The Crown (owned by celebrity chef Chris Coughborough) in Wells-next-the-Sea.
