Lantern Cottage Burnham Overy Staithe

Sleeps 4, from £490 to £930 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 comfortable place to stay throughout the year.

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.

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