As the name suggests, this delightful Victorian property was once home to the local cobbler and his shop and, despite being extended and updated in recent days, the cottage has lost none of its character – the display of cobbler's shoe lasts in the dining room still looks right at home. The cottage is furnished throughout in an attractive, eclectic style, combining a mix of retro and new, and always with comfort foremost in mind. An interesting collection of artworks, dotted here and there, complement each room, and complete the cottage's individual look.

On the ground floor, there is a compact kitchen, with an adjoining useful utility/boot room, a colourful dining room, perfect for both family and romantic meals, and a separate, cosy sitting room, with wood burning stove, invites you to take a seat and relax. Up the stairs (steep and straight) are three beautifully decorated 'boutique' bedrooms (king-size, twin and single), all with super comfy mattresses and quality linen, along with a family bathroom. The king-size master bedroom has the 'wow' factor, is enticing, full of romance and sure to appeal if you are of a romantic persuasion.

Cobbler's Cottage is a gem of a Norfolk hideaway, perfect for couples, friends or a small family. Ideal for both short and longer breaks around the year, it is a great base from which to explore the many delights of North Norfolk, both coastal and rural.
