Yew Tree Cottage is the epitome of a charming, traditional Norfolk cottage located right in the centre of Blakeney, set back off the main street the cottage provides a perfect bolthole in this bustling harbour village.
Blakeney is one of the jewels on the North Norfolk coast, a mecca for sailors, bird watchers, walkers and families and this cottage is ideal for a couples or a small family looking for a coastal escape.
The accommodation is restful and stylish, with high quality furnishings and linens. Original artworks and sculptures are located throughout the house.
The sitting room has a wood burning stove for cooler evenings, and a door opening to the courtyard garden.
The galley kitchen is compact but well equipped, including a coffee machine and dishwasher, and there is a spacious seperate dining area and a modern sound system to all rooms.
The master bedroom is comfortable and romantic, with pretty floral furnishings and original features such as an ornamental fireplace and latched doors.
The traditional stairs are very steep, but have a sensor light and hand rails to guide you.
There is a sheltered sunny courtyard garden with charcoal barbecue, table and chairs.
Set back off the main street the cottage provides a perfect bolthole in this bustling harbour village where you can walk to the quay and The White Horse pub/restaurant or The King’s Head.
It is also well located to explore this part of the coast with its pretty villages and beaches.
Sorry, no pets.
Parking is either roadside or in the nearby village car parks (both pay parking and free)
The duvets and pillows are a mixture of feather and synthetic.
Norfolk Winder stairs are, as with older character cottages, enclosed, steep, curved and narrow. At Yew Tree Cottage they are carpeted and have an automatic light, rope and wooden hand rail.
This is our fourth visit to Yew Tree and the perfect place to spend half term. We love coming here and always feel relaxed and sad to leave. We will be back again for longer (must get in early before it's booked up).

The village is a maze of winding streets and tiny fishermen’s cottages. Great places to eat and enjoy the local sea food like The White Horse, The Moorings, serving bistro meals during the day and an outstanding supper menu, or the King’s Arms.
Blakeney Point is a three-mile spit of sand dunes and shingle with stunning uninterrupted views of the landscapes. It is a wonderful place for walking and wildlife watching as it is home to colonies of breeding Terns and many migrant birds pass through as well as the colony of about 500 harbour and grey seals within reaching distance.
