Albion Cottage

A pet friendly brick and flint cottage in the heart of Happisburgh on the Norfolk coast. Albion Cottage is situated just outside the church gates in the center of the village on a very quiet lane. Perfect for summer breaks or winter escapes alike, this charming, elegant cottage is ideally located just 10 minutes from a glorious sandy beach. It is located adjacent to the owners' home in one of Norfolk's most picturesque coastal villages.

The village itself is now famous for the oldest evidence of human activity outside of Africa with footprints discovered on the beach to be over 900,000 years old.

The cosy local pub, within 50 metres of the cottage, echoes the local connection with Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle who visited many times and wrote one of the detective mysteries here.

In fact the local villagers will proudly boast of the number of other illustrious visitors who have been drawn to this unique place from Robinson Cruso author Daniel Defoe, cricketer W.C. Grace, sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, poet John Betjeman, writer PD James and even the Queen Mother once arriving by helocopter to visit a cousin who lived in the village.

The village is a must for those who enjoy the English countryside and its beaches in all seasons.
