This romantic ‘clock tower’ is the ideal retreat for two. Abound with character and enjoying views over the countryside.

Most unusual building

The Clock Tower was built around 1740, and is part of a Grade ll listed building. Whilst small, it is full of character - with old beams, sloping ceilings and an exposed void leading up to where the bell once hung. At the end of a private drive in the grounds of Snettisham House, there are open views to the rear and over the gardens to the front. Snettisham House is above the village about 3 miles from the sea. There are walks from the holiday cottage, and the nearby RSPB reserve is famous for its wading birds. The nearby Snettisham Park (open to visitors) has rare breeds and farms red deer. Snettisham has good pubs/hotels and a good bistro, store, post office, butchers and greengrocers. Shop, pub and restaurant 1.5 miles.

Ground floor: 1 double bedroom with access from one side only. Shower room with toilet. First floor: Living/dining room/kitchen all with beams.

NSH, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Freeview TV. DVD and small library. CD and small library. Electric cooker. Microwave. Patio and furniture. Parking (1 car). No smoking.

    We enjoyed our stay at the Clocktower, especially the Wentworth puzzles. Nice walk to the local pub. An informative welcome pack told us all we needed to know.

    Could do with a new fridge very out dated full of ice very noisy .the kitchen needed a good clean is inside cupboards all coated in a sticky greasy fluff. Bedroom very dark .bed pushed against wall no room at the bed foot ,so had to climb over my husband to go to toilet .not a lot of cupboard space to put your own food in .no garden only front drive to sit in

    It was a lovely cottage, very homely. Had everything we needed and more. Couldn’t fault any aspect. Area is great, we just went at a quiet time of year. Owners left all information that was needed. Would love to return to the clock tower.

    The location and amenities of Snettisham are excellent. Very quiet and beautiful area. The accommodation itself was good. However, we found the bedroom small and the bed pushed up against the wall at one side, & top & bottom, uncomfortable & awkward to get in & out. It is in the description but it was worse than we thought. The bathroom was also small & perhaps visitors larger or less able than us, would struggle with both rooms? The lounge & kitchen areas upstairs are excellent. The property was very clean & well looked after with everything you needed. Parking is restrictive & for one vehicle only. Outside the property it was another story. It was a building site on both sides of The Clock Tower, which was in a 4 property terrace. Very untidy front & rear of the two adjoining properties. Both appear to have had building work started but have been left unfinished for some time & now look derelict. There is a large digger in the rear garden of next door. Overall outside looked terrible, overgrown and a tip. It was a shame as The Clock Tower was good, and the other properties there were lived in, holiday homes or permanent homes.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; As the description of the property states; the Clocktower is small. However we have been letting to customers for 10 years and have very good ratings (including a gold star). Many people return and there are wonderful testimonials in the visitors book. We can't move walls, but we can make people comfortable and provide a stimulating environment not found in many other properties. The bedroom arrangement is exactly as described in the printed details. Recently we were sad to lose our long-standing elderly neighbour. His property has been sold and is being developed into a luxury dwelling. Work started last winter and halted during the summer. Because of the age and nature of the site, the District Conservation Officer has been advising. It may not look great over the fence but at least it is very quiet! The view in the other direction is unaffected. By coincidence our other neighbours are also having work done this year and waiting for new windows which are due before the end of August, so the guest missed this activity by a couple of weeks.

    A lovely compact, quirky little cottage which is ideal for a short stay for 1 -2 people only. Quite remote and a little difficult to find but once there beautiful. Now where to sit outside by the cottage except by the front door (where the car is parked). Close to lots of loacal attractions - you could probably walk to the local pub/shop.
