Property Description

The Property

Gulls Nest is a charming two-bedroom cottage nestled in the heart of the sought-after village of Morston, just a short stroll from the Quay, the coastal path, and the village pub, the cottage boasts a distant sea view. Originally converted from the outbuildings to the adjoining cottage, Gulls Nest is an interesting mix of period and modern, with exposed internal flint wall, and feature brick flooring combined with a more recent brick exterior and double glazing.

On entering the cottage, the accommodation is arranged off a central hallway, with a lovely feature brick floor. There is a good-sized kitchen/diner with a modern fitted kitchen, exposed flint features, and windows to the front and side of the property. Off the kitchen is the cosy sitting room, with a large window looking out over the field to the sea, the masts of the boats at the quay visible on the horizon.

There are two well-proportioned double bedrooms to the rear of the cottage and a generous family bathroom with a bath and electric shower over, WC, and wash hand basin.


Gulls Nest is approached from the road running through the village and over a shared entrance drive. There is shingle parking for two cars and a screened courtyard with ample space for a table and chairs and a BBQ to enjoy the warmer evenings. The cottage is perfectly positioned to stroll down to the quay.

Morston is a quintessentially pretty North Norfolk village with direct access out to the coastal path and a busy quay.

Morston Quay is part of Blakeney National Nature Reserve which is internationally important for its habitats and offers great wildlife viewing opportunities all year round. Throughout the year you can hop onto a boat and go to see the seals at the end of Blakeney Point.

The Norfolk Coast Path National Trail passes through Morston Quay and is great for exploring this beautiful coastline on foot. It gives great views of the saltmarsh between Wells-Next-The-Sea and Blakeney, which is one of the largest expanses in Europe.

Morston also boasts North Norfolk's Michelin-starred restaurant at Morston Hall.
