About Mrs Preedy's Cottage

A pretty cottage overlooking the mill stream near the Norfolk coast and Blakeney Nature Reserve.

Just across the mill stream and weeping willow trees sits postcard-perfect, Mrs Preedy’s Cottage. The pretty brick and flint cottage can accommodate up to five people and two dogs. Its lounge is complete with a log-burner and there’s a small paved garden to the side of the cottage for when the weather warms.

 

The cottage sits in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the north Norfolk coast.  A one and a half mile-long footpath links Burnham Overy Staithe to the sand-dunes and beach, running along the crest of the embankment which protects beautiful water meadows from the creek.

 

Blakeney Nature Reserve is only a 25 minute drive away, where dunes and marshes provide an ideal spot for bird watching. For the nearest shops and restaurants, head to trendy village of Burnham Market which is just a five minute drive from here. You’ll find quirky boutiques, galleries, book shops, a deli, a bakery, a butchers and tea shops.

Parking: There is parking for three cars behind the cottage. 

*WiFi: This is now available, but please note that intermittent connection problems can sometimes occur and should not be relied upon. We are pleased to provide free WiFi at this cottage which is supported by BT.

Please note: The drive and yard area beside the cottage is fenced but care needs to be taken particularly crossing to the shared (unfenced) riverside grassed area opposite as the cottage is on a sharp bend on the coast road, which can be busy at certain times of the day and in the peak season.
 
The road and mill pool are very close to the cottage and so young children will need to be supervised.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
