IMG_3744We know our guests love holiday cottages with direct access to the coast and so are delighted to add Up The Creek in Blakeney to our list of superb holiday properties in North Norfolk. The owners of Up The Creek have tastefully yet sympathetically restored it with gorgeous light and bright interior design. From a gate at the end of the large garden there is direct access to the coastal path between Blakeney and Morston… a really super feature of this cottage. The IMG_3508garden is mainly laid to lawn but also has two sheltered, shingle terraces one of which has a lovely little, brightly painted summer house.

IMG_3490The entrance door leads into small hallway off which is the lovely large kitchen/dining room, huge sitting room original stairs leading up to the first floor and a ground floor W.C. The Kitchen/Dining room is open plan but split in to two sections by the chimney breast that houses the ornamental AGA. This is a lovely light and bright room with large double aspect sash windows, the windows at the IMG_3406back looking out across the long lawn to Blakeneys famous salt marshes. Bright white paintwork and simple, stylish interior design give the room a gorgeous spacious, airy feel.

IMG_3378The kitchen is a well equipped and practical with hand painted units under wooden work tops. It has a three oven five hob range cooker, a full size dishwasher and a huge and very practical butler sink. A sweet stable door opens out on to the garden and there is an outhouse which is home to the boiler and a washer/drier. The AGA, part of the old kitchen’ is actually technically in the dining area, it makes a really nice IMG_3402feature.. there is a good sized dining table that comfortably seats six and the hand painted furniture and low level lighting make it a superb place for IMG_3341entertaining.


The sitting room is a really good size and has three lovely comfy sofas arranged around the original open fireplace. These is a Samsung LED TV with FreeSat perfect for cosy ‘film nights’ in-front of a roaring log fire, the collection of board games and books add to the homely feel of this room. At the back of the room is a desk for those who need to do a IMG_3607bit of work whilst away… the superb location of ‘Up The Creek’ make it an ideal spot for someone looking to spend a IMG_3627week or two writing a book or painting.

Up the stairs and there are three bedrooms. The ‘master bedroom’ is double aspect and has superb panoramic views over the salt marsh and out to sea, it has a super comfy king sized bed and plenty of storage space. As with the rest of the house the room has bags of character with features like its original fireplace. There are two twin rooms again both with IMG_3580plenty of storage, the smaller of the two, like the ‘master’ has gorgeous sea views. There is also the family bathroom off image2the first floor corridor which is a good size and has a large tub with shower above.

Externally there is a large suntrap shingle area with a table and bench seats and BBQ – a lovely space for alfresco dining, a second smaller shingle with it’s summer house and comfy outdoor furniture and then the large lawn which runs down to the coastal path which guests IMG_3790can access directly from the garden. This is a really lovely feature of the property and most unusual!

IMG_3844Up The Creek is a super property in a truly special location. Its lovely light and bright interior design, gorgeous sea views, large lawned garden and direct access to the coastal path will make it extremely popular with our guests and we would recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
