Set in the stunning coastal town of Sheringham this charming former boathouse is close enough to hear the crashing waves at high tide . Inside you’ll find an upside down holiday home with a wealth of local history.

The cottage was refurbished in the summer of 2020 into a cosy holiday retreat whilst maintaining its coastal feel and original features.
