Property Description

The Property

Jane's Cottage is a picture perfect two bedroom brick and flint cottage, tucked away on a pretty courtyard, just a stones throw from Blakeney quay.  The Grade II listed cottage has been beautifully maintained and furnished by the current owners and is a much loved second home and successful holiday let.  Featuring two bedrooms upstairs and well proportioned living space downstairs with a sitting room, dining area, good sized kitchen and charming family bathroom.  There is a pretty outside seating area in the courtyard to the front and short term parking spaces to unload, with just a few minutes walk to the free parking at the village hall or the car park on the quay.

The cottage is bright and airy with windows both to the front and the back bringing in lots of natural light and is stylishly decorated and elegantly furnished throughout. 

The entrance hall leads to the kitchen on one side and the family bathroom on the other which features a free standing bath with hand held shower over, WC and wash hand basin.  The newly fitted kitchen is in Stiffkey blue and features an integrated oven and hob, double butler sink, washing machine and dishwasher.  This leads through to the open plan sitting room and dining area.  The sitting room is both bright and cosy with a wood burning stove to curl up in front of in the cooler months.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a romantic master double bedroom in duck egg blue with feature wall in painted boards and a smaller second bedroom with fitted twin beds.


Jane's Cottage is approached from Westgate Street via a small gate into the pretty courtyard boarded by three other cottages.  Positioned in the corner, Jane's has private outside space to the front of the cottage with space for a table and chairs and wood store and looking in to the central part of the courtyard featuring the brick and flint original well, which is shared space.

There is easy access to the rear of the cottage via the loke behind for maintenance of the property.

There are short term parking spaces along Westgate Street opposite the cottage for loading and unloading and the village hall is just a few minutes walk away at the top of the street with free parking and the National Trust car park on the quay a few minutes in the other direction.

Jane's Cottage has been a much loved second home and successful for many years.  The cottage is currently advertised on Norfolk Hideaways and privately by the owners on Glaven Valley and is used frequently by friends and family.  Whilst it generates a healthy income as it stands there is scope to increase the return if desired.

The cottage is extremely well maintained and regularly updated to keep the interior fresh and stylish and there is the option to purchase the cottage as a turn key with everything included (minus a few personal smaller items), so that holiday letting could continue seamlessly if required.
