Cottage Description


This truly gorgeous ‘bolt-hole’ was originally used and owned by a local fishing family to store fishing nets and equipment – hence the name!

This is a beautiful little hideaway located in the heart of the very historic part of Sheringham. It has been tastefully converted and has spectacular sea views from the lounge on the first floor and balcony. It is ideally located if you want peace and quiet next to the sea, and yet is in the heart of the town – giving you the best of both worlds. 

It is wonderfully decorated, full of character and charm and our fabulous owners have put a great deal of thought and effort into restoring the cottage into a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable cottage to spend a fabulous holiday in.

It is ideal for a week long or short break….. right throughout the year and is a perfect place to explore Norfolk’s beach, Broad and country!

Sheringham has so much to offer, from dog friendly pubs, the access to the amazing coastal path, ice cream shops, fabulous fish and chips, lovely restaurants, eclectic shops and so much more.

There is also a fabulous local golf course, the North Norfolk Railway for the steam train enthusiast, and the Little Theatre too.

If you are a bit of a bird watcher, there are some fantastic opportunities for bird watching along the coast in surrounding areas too.
