Situated in a quiet corner of the closest ‘Loke’ to the quay, a moment or two from the Blakeney’s pretty harbour, The Wash House was originally a communal laundry for the adjacent fishermen’s cottages!
This unusual cottage has a contemporary style, with underfloor heating beneath the slate flooring, luxury fitted kitchen with dining table, large corner sofa, DVD and TV.
The ground floor master bedroom has a superking (6ft) bed with Hypnos mattress, it’s own wall mounted TV and plenty of storage. It is partially screened from the living area by chunky oak posts and you can star gaze from the through the large lantern roof lights (equipped with electric black out blinds too, of course) while you fall asleep. Outside is a small seating area with gets the afternoon sun and makes a nice spot for papers & morning coffee!
On the first floor is a second bathroom with shower cubicle and pretty single bedroom with views across the loke. A pull out ‘trunkle’ bed is also available for a child or occasional use. Plus there is a separate downstairs bathroom with bath and hand held shower.
