We vist Blakeney frequently and always like this group of cottages, so we stayed here as a larger party, with our family booking the adjoining apartment. This has been decorated and updated since we last stayed, we loved it anyway before, but now it is lovely! Had a wonderful time in Blakeney as usual, thanks once again, we will be back.
This cottage was a wonderful base for a winter getaway for my partners birthday. The property is ideally located and very well equipped, including a dishwasher.
The cottage has bags of character and was warm and cosy despite the November winds. The deli next door is a definite bonus. As other reviewers have said yes there is occasional parking in front of the window but those who know the narrow streets of blakeney will know this is inevitable. If it's a problem then shut the curtains!
All in all a lovely property in a beautiful village and very reasonable too. Highly recommended.
We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed it! The photos do not do the cottage justice at all. The living area is a little small for 6 people, but it wasn't a problem.
Beds are comfy! Bathrooms are nice, clean and have power showers! The showers take some fine tuning for the right temperature.
The location is awesome with nice walks, lovely pubs and cute shops on the door step!
Blakeney is a great location with plenty to do, good places to eat, we enjoyed The Moorings and Wiveton Farm. This cottage worked fine for 2 of us , we found it well equipped, comfy beds., warm...BUT if you are a family the stairs are dangerously steep and narrow,. The Deli next door is great for croissants in the morning but unfortunately people ignore the double yellow lines and the narrow road outside is used for parking to go to the Deli , this makes the cottage even darker as there is only this window into the living area, also people stare in the window. Overall this was a good cottage for a last minute autumn break at a reduced rate.
As stated by previous reviewer cottage is tired and furnished with odds and ends. Being right next to the deli you get the delivery vans across front door. At night there is the sound of the cooling system for the shop outside the bedroom. I have to question the 4 star rating.
Super location for getting out and about, plenty to do without the need of a car.
Cottage is tired despite a new laminate floor and a decent suite- the rest of furnishings and utensils are odds and ends. Cleanliness and maintenance was poor. We raised some safety points and customer service was dismissive of our concerns, in fact becoming rather rude in follow up emails. The cottage is functional but not really comfortable or cosy and I would not stay again- nor use the letting company again for any other property. Be warned the staircase is super steep with very narrow steps- so could not be used if you have any restricted mobility issues.

My husband and myself stay in this cottage for 3 nights, it was the perfect location to enjoy Blakeney. Only a stones throw from the quay and next door to the deli (best sausage rolls ever and the smell in the morning was amazing) the cottage was clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Would defiantly recommend to anyone, and if we ever stayed in Blakeney again this cottage would be our first choice.
