Scott's Cottage Burnham Overy Staithe

Sleeps 10, from £1815 to £4040 per week

Scott's Cottage is a wonderful sixteenth century house, initially a smuggler's house, which has been owned by the same family for several generations and is undoubtedly one of Burnham Overy Staithe's most historic houses. Several years ago it was extended and refurbished with the addition of a lovely kitchen and sitting room, five bath/shower rooms and a spacious utility room, making it the perfect combination of a charming country house with the convenience of a modern kitchen and bathrooms. It has extensive private gardens with stunning views over the marshes and out to sea, and direct access onto the coastal path.
