Property description

Tenure: Freehold

"A PICTURESQUE cottage where you will instantly feel at home" Sea Palling is the perfect COASTAL village for those looking for CHARACTER and CHARM, offering a range of VILLAGE SHOPS and direct access to the beach. The Broads and other pretty villages, including HORSEY, WAXHAM and HAPPISBURGH, are all close by. Complete with a stunning garden with field views which is ideal to enjoy the sun and outside dining.

Sea Palling

With its huge sandy beach, which has been awarded and retained a Blue Flag for many years, and traditional seaside atmosphere, it is ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy long walks and be a short drive from the Broads. The village has a shop, post office and pub and within a short drive there is a well-stocked farm shop and local butcher.
