St Nicholas Cottage (sleeps 4) – Bird watching paradise

St Nicholas Cottage - Bird watching paradise


St Nicholas Cottage is a newly refurbished quirky  holiday cottage Salthouse, right on the North Norfolk coast.  From the sitting room you have the most beautiful views over the salt marshes towards the sea, giving an ever changing sky and vista.  

It is owned by Jane, who also uses the house for her own family holidays.  The accommodation is upside down with the sitting room and two bedrooms on the first floor and the dining room, kitchen and shower room on the ground.  

To the rear of the cottage you have views over the church so this is a super peaceful place to holiday. Just a short drive or walk to Cley RSPB reserve

St Nicholas Cottage is a bird watcher’s paradise with far reaching views over the salt marshes and sea.

Thank you for a peaceful and creative weekend, we didn’t want to leave.  Am so going to miss that view.  John and Katie Marchant. June 2017

Outside:  the cottage is reached via an unmade track that although narrow in parts is accessible with a decent sized car. (we have a Fiat van and it has been fine)  The parking space to the rear and the road are shown in the photographs, but if you would like to discuss please do give us a call.  

There is a paved patio and parking area to the rear with garden furniture. French doors giving access to the cottage. To the front is a paved area.  The area surrounding the cottage is beautiful with the church to the rear.  Walks can be had directly from the house, to the sea, salt marshes or up into the lanes.  

The charm of the house is its peace and quiet and the views.  It is perfect in any season for anyone wanting a real getaway to bird watch, write, paint or just relax.  The Dun Cow is a short walk away which serves excellent food.  

There is a village shop in Salthouse selling basics and beef from the marshes. The Coasthopper bus comes through the village regularly giving public transport access along the whole coastline, if you want to leave your car behind. Salthouse is right on the coast and is next door to Cley famous for the bird reserve. The cottage will give you front row seats for the Autumn migration.
