A beautifully appointed, dog-friendly cottage in North Norfolk. Sleeps four.



Pit Cottage is a dog-friendly, beautifully appointed holiday cottage  overlooking the saltmarsh to the sea in the peaceful North Norfolk village of Salthouse. The cottage enjoys coastal views from every window to the front, while the back overlooks the delightful flower-stocked garden.  Glorious in summer and warm and cozy in winter, Pit Cottage is the perfect holiday cottage whatever the season.

Salthouse is part of the North Norfolk heritage coast (and on the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coastal Path), designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  There are plenty of walks right from the cottage's doorstep, either along the coast or inland through the beautiful countryside.  


Salthouse is well equipped with the renowned Dun Cow Pub, Cookies Crab Shop and Salthouse Store and coffee shop which does really good coffee!  The Coasthopper bus stop is 30 yards away, so you can leave your car at home and go exploring.  


For bird enthusiasts, Salthouse is famous for its bird-watching marshes, and the cottage is less than two miles from NWT Cley Marshes, one of Norfolk’s oldest and best known nature reserves.


The villages of North Norfolk offer many attractions – galleries, restaurants, shopping, antiques and arts and crafts. Salthouse is near the pretty Georgian market town of Holt, and Cley-next-the-Sea and Blakeney are only a short distance away.




Tastefully decorated throughout, with many touches of luxury



An arched doorway in the garden wall takes you into the fully enclosed garden. Step into the spacious kitchen/diner with an AGA, stone flooring and exposed ceiling beams.  Two comfy armchairs by the window overlooking the duck pond and saltmarsh provide the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.   Next door, the cozy sitting room has an inglenook and woodburner (logs are provided), and a large selection of books, dvds and games.


Upstairs, the master king-sized bedroom is spacious and light-filled and enjoys double-aspect views over both the garden and the saltmarsh.  The second double bedroom also looks out towards the sea.  Go to sleep listening to the distant sound of the waves crashing, and wake up to the songs of the birds.


The luxury bathroom has a walk-in shower and roll-top bath - leave the bathroom door open and you can enjoy a view over the saltmarsh!


Outside, the south-facing garden, with well-stocked flower beds and lawn, is a delight.  The patio is a sun-trap with plenty of seating and a gas BBQ  - the perfect place to enjoy eating al-fresco. The garden leads up to the summerhouse and a deck with an outdoor sofa and chairs, a lovely place to sit in the evening with the candle lanterns lit.  Off-street parking for two cars.
