Situated on a quiet country lane, the property has fields across the lane to one side, where you can watch the changing seasons and the farmers working their crops. The paved courtyard garden sits the other side of the property and behind are fields where if you elevate yourself slightly, you can see Happisburgh Church and the iconic Happisburgh Lighthouse. The church can be seen in the distance through the small window in the main bedroom too. Positioned on the edge of the very pretty village of Happisburgh, the local dog friendly pub is within walking distance. You’ll find a local shop, fishmongers,  a burger van in the peak season and more. The beaches of Happisburgh or Cart Gap are a walk or short drive away, with easy parking at Cart Gap and you’re soon in the heart of rural Norfolk. There are a wealth of dog friendly pubs and cafes within a short drive as well.

The original building has been converted to one large open plan living space and the property was carefully extended to provide the bathroom and bedrooms behind. The cottage has wood floors throughout and a step between the kitchen and lounge, and then again from the lounge to the hallway, leading to the bathroom and bedrooms. Relax by an open fire in the winter months, enjoy a luxurious bath in the roll top bath or read in bed with the doors open to the garden and the sun streaming in.

There is a shared access drive with parking by the cottage for two cars. Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome for a small extra charge

Bramble Cottage is a well loved, comfortable family home, with authentic features such as flint walls, beams and a charm that only a 16th century barn can have.  Like in all properties of this style, the flint walls do produce some dust that settles immediately after cleaning, the odd nail pops up in the wooden floor needing hammering down and some spiders do take up residence in the beams meaning the odd cobweb will appear despite efficient cleaning each changeover.  We hope it will still give you the warm welcome that we want all our guests to experience. 🙂

Just had a lovely week at Bramble Cottage in Happisburgh. It is full of character and really comfortable with a lovely area outside (fully enclosed so great for our dog and a sun trap all day!). The location is also great for exploring this part of Norfolk.
