Gillies is an award winning detached coastal house designed by a local architect, situated in a prime position in Burnham Overy Staithe with stunning marsh, creek and sea views. In 2015 it was awarded a VisitEngland Gold Award in the 4 star Category of Excellence. The house has a nautical feel with its curved blue walls and contemporary glass and steel staircase, cleverly designed with an upstairs sitting room to take advantage of the lovely views. Upstairs is perfect for three couples with three lovely en-suite bedrooms, with a further two twin bedrooms and a shower room on the ground floor. There is a large enclosed garden with ample car and boat parking and access to the harbour for sailing or a 30 minute walk along the coastal path out to the beautiful unspoilt sandy beach. Gillies is unrivalled for bird-watching with many rare species seen from the house. Within 4 minutes walking distance is The Hero gastro pub.
