Mill Pond Cottage is a spacious terraced cottage, dating back to around 1910 tucked away in the heart of the popular coastal village of Mundesely. It is perfect as a second home, holiday cottage or main residence being walking distance to the beach and the amenities and with a charming view of the sea from upstairs.
The cottage is one of five terraced cottages, with a private courtyard garden to the rear and a communal garden to the front.
Downstairs there is a good sized sitting room to the front of the cottage enjoying a peaceful outlook over the lawn, a fireplace with electric wood burning effect stove and with a small porch and door leading out to the front garden. From the sitting room there is a hallway with the kitchen off, the dining room and with stairs leading up to the first floor. The kitchen is a bright room with French doors out to the rear courtyard. It is well equipped with both floor and wall pine units in an L-shape with a handy utility area off the main kitchen with cupboards and work top. The dining room is a wonderfully bright and airy room, with plenty of space for a dining table and chairs, dresser and occasional furniture; it benefits from light pouring in from the conservatory style bank of windows and French doors out to the rear and side of the cottage.
Upstairs on the first floor there are two double bedrooms. The master bedroom is to the front of the cottage looking out over the garden with an en suite shower room; there is the family bathroom featuring a corner bath and separate shower enclosure and a further double room with a window out to the rear courtyard.
Upstairs again to the second floor is bedroom three. A charming double room with a beautiful view out over the rooftops of Mundesely and on to the sea.
The cottage is approached via a private road leading to the rear gate. There is parking for one car adjacent to the rear fence.
To the rear of the cottage is a fully enclosed, paved, courtyard garden; perfect for sitting out in the summer evening and enjoying a BBQ.
To the front of the cottage is a pretty communal garden, shared by all five cottages. Each cottage has a small private walled garden immediately in front with a communal lawn surrounded by mature hedging. There is a pedestrian gate to one end of the front garden should you wish to enter the cottage from the front when you get back from a walk along the beach, a trip in to the village or a visit to one of the local pubs or cafes.

Mill Pond Cottage is currently a much loved second home that is holiday let on an ad-hoc basis. The current owners do not maximise the potential for booking the cottage on a commercial basis, choosing to use it more privately for family and friends. However, the cottage has fantastic scope to be a very successful holiday let business. It is spacious, has three good sized bedrooms, a private outside space and somewhere to park; making it ideal for families, couples and those wishing to come on holiday with their four legged friends.
The property could be available as a turn-key with existing furniture, fixtures and fittings available by separate negotiation (with the exception of a few personal items).
The cottage is both marketed and fully managed by leading local holiday cottage agency, Norfolk Cottages and they would be delighted to continue marketing it and can give great advice on how the new owners of Mill Pond Cottage might maximise the income from holiday bookings, should that be their desire.
Mundseley is a very popular destination for holiday makers to Norfolk and Mill Pond is ideally situated in the village to give access to the beach, pubs, cafes, shops and other amenities.
Mundseley is a pretty village situated on the coast of North Norfolk. It is a mixture of rich farming land and a popular seaside resort, popular with day trippers and as a destination for summer holidays. The beautiful sandy beach lined with colourful beach huts was voted the 2016 Best Blue Flag Beach in Britain by Holiday Lettings and the village reached the 2018 semi-finals of TV Channel 4's Village of the year.
Mundesley has its own inshore lifeboat, which is crewed and administered by local volunteers. There is also a Coastwatch station, manned all year round during daylight hours by local volunteers and, during the summer, there is a safe area of the beach continually watched over by the lifeguards from the RNLI.
The village itself is well served by local shops in and around its small High Street. A well-equipped medical centre, a library, a post-office, three pubs and various B&Bs make it an ideal place to live or to visit yet, somehow, it has not lost its old-world charm with thatched roofs, stone walls and many quaint and charming cottages. Mundesley sits in a dip in the cliffs and from the clifftops there are spectacular views across the whole of the village and right across to Happisburgh lighthouse in the other direction. From the clifftop, you can walk across to Stow Mill passing the Mundesley Holiday Village.
The village is a great starting point for country walks with plenty of footpaths, circular routes and walking trails including Paston Way and and the Norfolk Coast Path. Close by is Southrepps Common, an important area for wildlife with woodland and wild flowers. Mundesley is also on the Deep History Coast Discovery Trail and has its own Discovery Point.
A fine nine-hole golf course built in 1901, sits on the hillside of the River Mun valley and offers unrivalled views over the coast and countryside, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For family fun, there is crazy golf, a skate park, play areas and a tennis court. In the Summer there is a surf school and there are geo-caches for treasure hunters. Throughout the year, visitors can enjoy exhibitions, fayres, festivals and concerts in the village halls and parks.
