Property Description

The Property

Located in the popular coastal village of Weybourne, Bird Cottage is a charming detached two bedroom brick and flint cottage, with stunning interiors and a pretty garden at the rear.  The cottage is in the centre of the village and within walking distance of the excellent village amenities, including a pub, village shop and coffee shop and a shingle beach, with views extending to Blakeney Point. 

The current owners have lovingly renovated the cottage, retaining the character features, whilst creating a comfortable and stylish interior.  The windows have smart wooden shutters or stunning blinds, the ground floor has luxury vinyl flooring throughout, column radiators in Anthracite grey, new light switches and fittings and a new woodburning stove in the sitting room. 

The accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hall, galley style kitchen, dining room, sitting room and cloakroom on the ground floor and on the first floor two bedrooms and family bathroom.  

A gravel path from the road leads down some steps to the front door, welcoming you into a cosy entrance hall, with a cloakroom on the left, the dining room straight ahead leading into the kitchen and the sitting room to the right. 

The newly fitted Wren galley kitchen has shaker forest green cupboards top and bottom with pewter handles and an integrated dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge freezer and waste bins.  The Terrazzo work top runs the length of the kitchen, providing plenty of space for food preparation and a ceramic sink and chrome kitchen tap.  The cooker is Rangemaster with a Neff extractor. Newly replaced uPVC French doors lead out to the garden.  

The dining room, off the kitchen has plenty of room for a table and provides a social space for eating.  

The front and rear windows in the sitting room let in plenty of natural light, and the exposed brick fireplace and wood-burning stove serve as the room's main focal point. The sitting room is spacious and inviting with plenty of room for comfortable seating and curling up with a book.  

Upstairs are two bedrooms, again both beautifully finished and flooded with natural light from windows to the front and side of the cottage.  The principal bedroom has ample space for a king size bed and bedroom furniture. The second bedroom is well proportioned, currently housing twin beds, with windows to the side and front of the cottage.

The family bathroom has a bath, wash hand basin, loo and shower enclosure.

Contents are available by separation negotiation.

The Location

Weybourne is an idyllic old fishing village situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the north Norfolk Coast. The village is well known for its winding roads and brick and flint cottages, many dating back to the 17th century. Weybourne has a quiet shingle beach with a backdrop of cliffs leading to Sheringham in one direction and Blakeney Point in the other.

Surrounded by fields, woods and and heathland, Weybourne is ideal for those who enjoy walking and the coastline. If you don't want to walk, you may enjoy the restored steam train known as the North Norfolk train (sometimes known as the "Poppyline"), which runs past Weybourne Station and connects the towns of Sheringham and Holt.

The Ship is a very popular gastro pub, located in the centre of the village, serving excellent food and drink. There is also a charming village store / coffee shop, which stocks essentials, serves lovely coffee and freshly prepared snacks - perfect for when you are just back from the beach.

Weybourne, which has a population of little more than six hundred, has a great feeling of community and is an excellent holiday destination to visit all year round. The village has the UK’s largest privately owned working military collection, The Muckleburgh Collection, which is home to over 150 artillery pieces, tanks and vehicles.

Weybourne is three miles from the seaside town of Sheringham and less than four miles from the busy Georgian market town of Holt. Supermarkets, schools, plenty of places to eat, lovely shops, doctors surgeries and schools are all close by.
