We are absolutely delighted to be able to add this wonderful period cottage to our portfolio of luxurious places to stay in North Norfolk.
Situated right on the pretty little quayside in Cley next the Sea, Tickers is in a wonderful location, looking out over the little creek and the saltmarshes beyond towards the sea. Tucked away from the bustle of the High Street, yet right in the centre of this lovely conservation coastal village with its landmark windmill, guests staying at Tickers can take advantage of the wonderful village bakery, smoke house and delicatessen for delicious local produce; it is just a short walk from the cottage for hot croissants and fresh coffee in the mornings and to stock up at the other little shops.
This characterful property with brick and flint exterior, offers guests light and bright luxury accommodation and has been renovated to an exceptional standard with excellent quality fittings throughout the house. There is dedicated parking for the cottage down the little lane leading to Cley Windmill, and a picket gate from the parking area takes guests through the garden to the house.
French doors open from the garden to the well planned kitchen with high quality units running down both sides, creating a cooking area on one side and utility the other. The kitchen has excellent quality appliances including a hob with oven below, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer drier. There is an attractive window seat within the kitchen area, just before one enters the dining area which also has French doors opening out into the garden.
The dining area is furnished with a modern styled table surrounded by ‘ghost’ style chairs and illuminated by a pendant light above. The painted panelled feature wall and pale stone floor are carried through the entire open plan ground floor and give the cottage a wonderfully cohesive feel of coastal simplicity and restraint. The owners have chosen interesting art works featuring maritime themes and are an interesting and eclectic mix of old prints and modern paintings. The dining and sitting areas are separated by a fire place featuring a double sided wood burner which warms the entire ground floor for cosy winter evenings in. A large sofa faces the Smart Tv, along with a Danish styled arm chair and the owners have had another bespoke cushioned window seat fitted in the sitting room to take advantage of the pretty view over the village.
A door from the dining area leads to the hall way with its bespoke storage cupboards and stairs lead up to the first floor. There are two good sized bedrooms, simply furnished, one with a super king bed and the other a king size bed. The rear bedroom has magnificent uninterrupted views out over the saltmarshes and the room at the front looks out over the red pantile roofs of the pretty brick and flint village cottages that line the main street. Both rooms share the well designed bathroom with its driftwood effect floor and bath panel. There is a large ‘rain effect’ shower over the bath along with the washbasin and wc.
There is one other small bedroom with a cot, and although the house is advertised as a two bedroom property sleeping four, the owners are happy if guests with a baby chose to use this little room. They will need to bring their own baby bed linen.
Back downstairs the double doors from the kitchen lead to a fully enclosed garden, perfect to sit out in on those sunset summer nights and for alfresco dining. The kind owners are allowing guests to bring one dog to their lovely cottage. The North Norfolk coastal path is a short stroll away from Tickers and the little tidal creek and the salt marshes a mere stones throw from the cottage and its garden area.
We are certain our discerning guests will love this gorgeous cottage. The modern interior throughout the property creates a light and airy ambiance which is ideal for a peaceful and relaxing getaway for couples and families alike and we recommend booking early as little gems like this with parking and a garden and views are in great demand. For the perfect coastal break, we’re certain you’ll fall in love with this beautiful and charming cottage.
