Description

This delightful cottage overlooks the village green and is one of a small row of terraced cottages in the heart of West Runton. With just a short stroll to the beach and close to the village shops, the cottage could not be better located. The creative owners have completely refurbished the property and their eye for detail clearly shows in the charming interiors. All creature comforts have been thought about to ensure you enjoy a cosy and relaxing holiday and the garden to the rear of the house is a suntrap.  Aside from the local beach, the lovely resorts of Sheringham and Cromer are nearby and for further explorations, leave the car behind and pop on the Coast Hopper bus service, which takes you right along the top of this amazing coastline where there are great villages, seaside towns, stately homes and more to explore. Shop/Pub: within walking distance

West Runton is an appealing seaside village nestled into the north Norfolk coastal landscape. It offers a family friendly beach with crabbing and fossil hunting and there is a pub, grocers, station, two cafes, Rocky Bottom - the local fish restaurant, a gym, golf and swimming all to be found within half a mile of the cottage's front door. To the east discover the resort of Cromer with its famous Pier and cliff top walks and further along this stretch of the coast are numerous flat, sandy beaches that are often not over populated even in the summer.  Head west and discover the open marshes at Stiffkey and Cley-next-the-Sea and seaside villages such as Blakeney and Wells-next-the-Sea, each with their own unique character.  With great pubs, delis, smokehouses, farmshops and eateries there are plenty of places that showcase the produce that Norfolk is justifiably famous for such as crabs, mussels, cheeses, wines and more. The area is rich in history too with Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall both run by the National Trust and Holkham Hall, the seat of the Earl of Leicester, which is still an independent family-run estate all nearby. This is a wonderful part of the county and a holiday here will bring back many happy memories for years to come.

Reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bluebird Cottage. The cottage has everything we needed and we were very comfortable here. The location is perfect to explore the wider area, we hope to return!

Sharon M,

Bluebird cottage was amazing, it got the wow factor as soon as we saw it, from walking up the front garden and walking in. It was beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for more

Mrs Christine L,

Bluebird Cottage is the prettiest cottage we have visited, it welcomes you as soon as you walk up the garden path. The decor is amazing and of the highest standard, it really has the 'WOW' factor. The property is located in a village which is close to the bus stops, shops, pub and beach. We have loved our time here, and would love to stay again.

Mital L,

What more can we say! Still Lovely! That's why we keep coming back!

Carole F,

We had a lovely time exploring the North Norfolk coast and the house was a fantastic base and so beautifully decorated.

Panayi Family,

We did come back! Love it here. The cottage is cosy and comfortable and welcoming. Thank you! Highly recommend the Pepperpot - excellent cuisine! And the Corner House Cafe - good coffee and delicious food. Such a friendly place and superb location. Can't wait to come back!

Previous Customer,

Excellent cottage very much home from home. Everything we required and it all works, very clean and tidy. We were very lucky with the weather, with walks around West Runton and the beach. Would recommend The Two Lifeboats at Sheringham for food. After staying in Sheringham for the previous 5 years we will definitely be giving Bluebird another look next year.

Paul & L,

We are packing up to leave your beautiful cottage. We have never been quite so comfortable whilst away on holiday. It's a real home from home and we've enjoyed the neighbouring towns and gorgeous seafood.

The Tedd Party,

It has lovely being back in your beautiful cottage. We have had mixed weather this year but it hasn't stopped us having a great time. We repeated some favourite things - trips to the beach, ride on the steam train, mooching round the antique shops in Holt. and tried some new ones - boat trip to see the seals on Blakeney Point, the Priory Maze & Gardens and a lovely walk along the beach from Cromer to Overstrand (about an hour at a gentle stroll) lovely cafes at Overstrand & West Runton beaches. Thanks again for making the cottage a home from home.

Previous Customer,

We've had an excellent holiday and are very sad to be leaving. Highlights for the boys included a trip to Splash, Muckleburgh and a train journey to Norwich to visit the impressive castle, while we enjoyed the simple pleasures of walks along the beach / clifftop and saltmarshes. Bluebird Cottage is by far, the best holiday property we've stayed in - thank you.

The W,

Beautiful cottage - it felt like our "home" after everyday out! Fantastic location, easy parking and excellent quality. You have thought of everything - I didn't need to use any of my products or tea towels! Real comfort knowing our 18 month boy felt safe and happy - he knew exactly which gate was ours for the week!! Beautiful artwork and fun unicorn tissues!! Thank you. Best wishes

The R,

Stayed in this lovely cottage for 2 weeks - I have mirror envy - everything is very tasteful and comfortable. Great shower and bath, so relaxing. Went to Sheringham Park, lovely day lots of walking, also Felbrigg Hall, Cromer and Sheringham. Rocky Bottoms - 10 mins walk is great for Crab & Seafood. Rocket Cafe, Cromer great for everything including the view. Good buses and travel links, a great local shop. We hope to return - love this part of the county.

Carol & B,

Thank you for a great week in your lovely cottage with everything thoughtfully provided. We had a super time cycling, eating Cromer Crab and seal spotting at Horsey beach. Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall are well worth a visit. The Pepperpot is the best restaurant we have been to for gluten free. The food is superb.
