Norlands Cottage is perfectly located with outstanding views from the house and peaceful sunny garden across to Yarmouth, the Solent and River Yar.

It is only a few minutes walk across the bridge from Yarmouth along a small private lane, very easy to reach with or without a car. The beach is a few minutes walk back up the lane, perfect for an early morning swim, an afternoon of pottering or an evening barbecue whilst watching the sun set. Norlands Cottage is an extremely comfortable four bedroom family home, much loved and designed to be welcoming and lived in. Children and well behaved pets are very welcome.
