Snowdrop Cottage is a delightful two bedroom cottage peacefully tucked away off the historic main street in the village. Within the grounds of Blakeney House, a Victorian manor house in the heart of the old village, Snowdrop Cottage benefits from a suntrap courtyard garden with private adjacent parking, and is just a short walk from the quay.
Snowdrop has been beautifully refurbished and champions the country house look; it’s a timeless, relaxed feel with painted heritage colours, neutral linen and muted tones of sage and cream. The cottage is incredibly light and airy, decorated with designer floral linens and loads of cushions and with an emphasis on sheer relaxation.
The sitting room has a charming ivory wood-burning cottage stove with a glass door so you can watch the logs burning and flickering flames. The warmth and atmosphere of a real fire is one of the things which makes Snowdrop Cottage feel charmingly relaxed and cosy, but the luxurious cashmere and wool sofa throws and sheepskin rugs also play a part.
The two large luxurious sofas are arranged to take full advantage of the garden views. The French doors open onto a beautifully furnished terrace area. The colonial style collection of outdoor furniture is ideal for relaxing in the pretty and tranquil space overlooking the neighbouring Blakeney House’s wonderful gardens. With an outdoor dining table for four as well as a sofa, coffee table and two lounging chairs, this is the perfect place for al fresco breakfasts and afternoon drinks in the garden. Candlelight lanterns and wall mounted patio carriage lights all add to the pleasant evening atmosphere.
With a 43” Sony television with Netflix enabled and a Roberts audio system with iPod docking, the cottage is ideal for cosy, tranquil evenings at home. The Wi-Fi also helps you stay connected if so desired! You’ll find a library of books to enjoy, including plenty of local history and tourist information titles, as well as a wide choice of DVDs, music, and board games which complement the cottage’s truly homely ambiance.
The fitted cream kitchen is extremely well equipped with a brushed stainless-steel range, large SMEG fridge freezer, integrated dishwasher and microwave. The charm of the kitchen includes a Dualit kettle, toaster and a Nespresso coffee machine. The cupboards are well stocked with Emma Bridgewater handmade pottery, glassware and every pot, pan and utensil you made need. The farmhouse dining table and chairs seat four.
The king sized bedroom radiates romance, its decoration taking emphasis from Kate Forman’s blue roses range, with complementary ‘Toile de Jouy’ velvet cushions and a large silk bed throw. Cream bedside table lamps, antique brass wall lights and two windows overlooking the delightful Blakeney House gardens give the bedroom a lovely peaceful feel.
The bedroom situated to the front of the cottage has two single beds that can be ‘zip and linked’ together to form a king size bed. As with all the furnishings in the cottage, the beds are superb quality and are extremely comfortable. Both rooms share the fully tiled white shower room which has a luxurious walk-in rain shower, w.c. and hand basin.
Snowdrop Cottage’s location in the heart of Blakeney with its off road parking and private garden makes it perfect for families or couples seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life at any time of year.
Properties of this size with private parking and a garden are at a premium in Blakeney so book well in advance to make the most of this wonderful coastal accommodation.
