Lantern Cottage Burnham Overy Staithe

Sleeps 4, from £400 to £780 per week

Lantern Cottage is a traditional 2-bedroom bungalow, perfectly located in the heart of the highly sought after coastal village of Burnham Overy Staithe. Within a minutes walk from the creek, and 30 seconds from the local pub, it is a very secluded detached property set well back from the coastal road, concealed behind secure high wooden gates with the great advantage of fully enclosed dog and child-proof front and back gardens. There is a large gravel front drive - the cottage has ample off-street parking for 2-3 cars (and a boat), and a south facing rear garden with a patio area. The owners have thoughtfully stocked it with everything a family of 4 or 2 couples could need for a sailing/beach/walking/bird-watching week, including teddies for kids, games for wet days, dog towels/dog blankets and picnic/beach stuff. Lantern Cottage is also an ideal place for the less mobile guest, being all on one floor and having a wet room easily accessed from the double bedroom. It is ideally suited to those seeking a warm and comfortable, well-equipped 'family home from home experience', rather than those seeking a more contemporary 'boutique' hotel holiday! It has oil-fired central heating with double glazing throughout, making this a warm, cozy and comfrotable place to stay throughout the year.

Outside

Lantern Cottage is quietly located off the coastal road behind high wooden gates with a large gravelled front drive with ample parking for cars and boats. With the staithe at Burnham Overy only a minute's walk away this is a perfect location for sailors, walkers, twitchers or anyone wanting to enjoy the beauty of the stunning harbour and maybe follow the coastal path to the glorious sandy beaches at Scolt Head (about a 30 minute walk). The gravelled front and back garden areas are secure and enclosed, with mature shrubbery, trees and bird feeders which local and migrating birds frequent - a safe place for children and pets. The exceptionally sunny south-facing back garden is partially paved and laid to gravel and contains bird tables and feeders, a water feature (controlled from inside), outside furniture with parasol and a barbecue.

Secure Out-house: at the front which contains a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Storage for bikes at bike-owners' risk.

Guest Reviews

this was our second stay at Lantern Cottage.
It was in as good condition as last year
We really like It's location both generally (on the coast) and specifically (quiet and well set out)
We had a great time and will book again for 2019.

Powell's - 13/04/2018

A really nice property to stay for a relaxing week. Would have stayed longer.
There were walks from the door and close to the coastal path.
The information in the property was helpful and informative.
Also we made use of the pub walks book several times and really enjoyed it.
Thank you.

Hunter party - 09/03/2018

Beautiful walks straight out of the door around the harbour and also across the marsh land to the sand dunes to the sea along a well made path.

The cottage was beautifully warm and the garden was dog proof for our small terriers.

Blake Party - 10/11/2017

Wonderful location. Loved being able to get onto the coastal path so easily and tawny owls hooting each evening.

Westoby Party - 06/11/2017

Just superb, thank you so much.

Cobley Party - 15/09/2017

Morgan Party - 08/09/2017

This is very much a lovely cottage in an absolutely beautiful part of the coast. The cottage is spacious, calm and relaxing. In the centre of the village for all activities without being noisy.

Wright party - 18/08/2017

The cottage had everything you could ever want and a few extras. We loved the garden and we slept comfortably.

We really loved the layout, facilities, garden and location of the cottage especially being next door to the pub.

We had a most enjoyable stay, discovering a beautiful part of the England we had never visited before.

The attention to detail was much appreciated and all the info.

Anne Nicholls - 21/07/2017

Lantern Cottage is the best holiday cottage we have stayed in when we have our yearly holiday to Norfolk.
The cottage is well furnished and has everything you need for a perfect holiday, even the weather was good.

Bignell Party - 30/06/2017

We had a wonderful week in this cottage, the location, seclusion and the fact that it was full of light made our stay so good.

Stephen Powell - 31/03/2017

This is a lovely, comfortable cottage in a beautiful coastal position. It was beautifully clean when we arrived and the lovely private garden area was in reallygood order when we arrived.

We liked everything about this cottage and would certainly stay again.

Christine Bolsover - 24/03/2017

We really enjoyed our stay. The Burnham's are heavenly. You don't have to be a rich Londoner to be able to stay there.

The cottage was homely and oh so quiet!!! Near the pub and quay and lovely walks

Michele Edgson - 24/02/2017

We and the dog had a very enjoyable week and particularly enjoyed coming back to a nice warm cottage whatever time of day during a particularly cold week.

Wonderful bungalow in a fabulous location. Will return next year.

Burnham Overy Staithe

Location

A pretty coastal village with a busy harbour which used to be predominantly a fishing village, but is now a very popular place for sailors, walkers and bird-watchers, with the area being designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. There is an excellent local gastro-pub called The Hero which re-opened after extensive refurbishment and has quickly gained a great reputation.

During the summer there is a ferry out to the nature reserve of Scolt Head Island, a bird and seal sanctuary. For the more energetic it takes about 30 minutes to walk along the coastal footpath across the marshes out to the vast expanse of sandy beach which is quite often deserted. The large black Burnham Overy windmill dominates the skyline for miles around and on the outskirts of village there is a fine collection of 18th century mill-buildings next to the river Burn.
