Wonderfully positioned cottage with frontage to the River Stiffkey in need of refurbishment


Stiffkey is a pretty Norfolk coastal village between Wells-next-the-Sea and Blakeney. The village is famous for its 'Stewkey Blues', a local blue cockle, and has a popular pub, The Red Lion, serving real ale and good food, and a general store and newsagents. The village is very well placed for the famous North Norfolk Coast with the Stiffkey marshes giving access through to Blakeney Point, with the village and coastline an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is excellent sailing at various points along the coast, a plethora of restaurants and pubs in the area, seal trips at both Morston and Blakeney and a network of coastal walks through the marshes and beaches with renowned bird watching.

Holt (approximately 7 miles) is famous for its boutique shopping, Byfords delicatessen, good restaurants and pubs, art galleries, crafts shops and antique show rooms. The town has further specialist and everyday shopping, private and state education, and banking and health facilities within the town.


Windrush Cottage is a wonderfully positioned cottage, set within the popular North Norfolk village of Stiffkey with frontage to the River Stiffkey and off-street parking.

Constructed of brick and flint, under a pantile roof, the cottage is set back from the road with private access and parking, including a garage. The property is set back from the river, and comprises a kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room on the ground floor, with stairs up to two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

The cottage is not listed, with space for a sympathetic extension if required, subject to the usual planning consents being obtained.

Windrush Cottage is approached from the north, over a gravelled drive leading to a gravelled parking and turning area, adjoining the house and garage.

An established privet hedge flanks the drive and provides privacy from the road, together with an assortment of shrubs. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, sweeping down to the banks of the River Stiffkey, with frontage of approximately 10 metres and with lovely views up and down the river, with undulating countryside beyond.

A gravelled area is behind the house, with a wooden fence boundary.
