A delightful, brick and flint Norfolk holiday cottage in a superb peaceful location, just a few minutes' walk from the Blakeney quay local amenities of this popular coastal village.
Originally two cottages, this charming cottage is now one. Walk in the front door of this little gem, and you will soon appreciate the very home-from-home, cosy welcome that greets you.
Furnished in a traditional style Pear Tree Cottage has bags of character, with Pamment tiled floors on the ground floor dotted with rugs for warmth underfoot, original beams and some slightly challenging Norfolk winder stairs to the first floor.
On the ground floor is a country-look breakfast kitchen leading through to a conservatory, where you can dine or just take a seat and relax. A door at the other end of the kitchen takes you through to the sitting room, where a wood burning stove is available to light if you want to take off the chill and feel extra cosy.
Beyond the sitting room is a rear hallway leading to a shower room. Climb the stairs to the first floor (they are steep and twisty) and you will find a dual aspect twin room, with an en-suite cloakroom, a double room facing to the front of the cottage, and a family bathroom with roll top bath.
Outside, a cottage garden to the front and a private courtyard to the rear enables you to catch the sun’s rays, whatever the time of day. Both are fully enclosed, so you can relax and not worry, leaving children and four-legged friends to enjoy themselves.
Pear Tree Cottage is a lovely place to retreat to after a day outside enjoying the fresh Norfolk sea air and will appeal to a couple or two, friends and families. If you are looking for coastal living with on-the-doorstep shops, restaurants and cafes, a delicatessen and galleries galore, look no further.
From the quay at the bottom of the High Street you can try a spot of crabbing, catch a boat to Blakeney Point to see the seals or walk the coastal path in either direction and take in the fantastic birdlife and scenic coastal views.
Pear Tree Cottage also has the bonus of its own, very handy private parking place.
Such a lovely cottage. On the warm summers days, with all the doors and windows open we could smell the sea air, it was delightful. We'll be back next year, thank you.

The beautiful coastal village of Blakeney is rather quaint, and popular with visitors throughout the year. It has a lovely quay, narrow side streets and a 14th Century Guildhall so there’s plenty of character and history to the village.
You can take a boat trip from here or nearby Morston to see the huge seal colonies at Blakeney Point. The mix of greys pupping in winter and commons in summer provide interest all year round. Winter 2018-19 was a bumper year for the grey seals with over 3000 pups born here, and no visit to Norfolk is complete without seeing this spectacular sight.
There is a scrumptious deli and coffee house in the village. Afternoon tea in the Blakeney Hotel is a treat, and a choice of good pubs in the area including The Kings Arms and The White Horse.
