Property Description

The Property

The Anchorage is a charming, generously proportioned two bedroom home situated in the centre of Sheringham. With original features such as exposed beams and brick work that remain prominent to this day. As a result, the history of the Anchorage is clearly evident. The accommodation briefly comprises: one downstairs bedroom, family bathroom, kitchen, dining / sitting room and master bedroom complete with 3 piece en-suite on the first floor. 

Upon entry to the front of the property, you walk into the entrance hall which has pamment tile flooring. Off this lies the family bathroom, consisting of a walk-in shower, loo, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. The bathroom is very well placed and ideal for coming in straight off the beach!

Following the entrance hall to the left, you have the downstairs bedroom, a good sized room with built-in wardrobes which is filled with natural light flowing through from two windows to the side and an additional Velux window.

To the right of the front door is the kitchen, which is bursting with delightful character features such as wooden beams, exposed brick work and pamment tile flooring. Viewing in person is absolutely essential to appreciate the extent of the features that this room has to offer. There is space for a dishwasher and washing machine. 

Situated towards the back of the property is the sitting room / dining room, a large open space, with space for a dining table to seat four and a feature brick fire place.

The first floor consists of the master bedroom, another good sized room with ample space for a King size bed, fitted cupboards and en-suite with a bath with hand held shower attachment, WC and wash hand basin.


The Anchorage is extremely well positioned, tucked away in the centre of Sheringham.  It is approached from the road via a gravel access lane and whilst there is no parking at the property, the Cliff Road car park is close by and both weekly and annual passes are available to purchase.  

There is no outside space at the cottage, however, the beach is literally only two minutes walk away along with all the amenities of Sheringham town centre.

The Location

Sheringham, a traditional seaside town was once a fishing village and that heritage is still evident today. Sheringham’s Blue Flag beach is family friendly and has scenic walks along the promenade, which houses a row of colourful beach huts.

In the town, you will find pubs, cafes, tea rooms, museums and a theatre. In the centre of Sheringham is the town clock, built on the site of an 1862 water well. A market is held on Saturdays throughout the year and Wednesdays from April to November.

Sheringham has many carnivals and festivals all year round including the famous Crab & Lobster Festival and Sheringham Carnival. There is also a Steam Gala in the Autumn, celebrating the heritage North Norfolk Railway which runs from Sheringham to Holt.

Nearby is the National Trust’s Sheringham Park, with miles of hilly countryside covered with gorse and purple heather and offers superb sea views. Great views are also found at the top of Beeston Bump, a large grassy hill which is 103m tall and was formed at the end of the ice age.
