Stayed for a week august 2022. Property description and photos very accurate. Quiet country Lane, 3 great pubs in walking distance and a deli, which is great for breakfast or brunch. Really close to Norfolk coastal path- can double back on the coastal hopper. Brancaster, Holme, Burnham ,Wells, Blakeney all worth a visit. Stairs are steep and gardenRead more is shared- furniture and beds very comfortable. Reviews saying it is dated are unfair imho. Easy parking. Would recommend Hide

Great location, peaceful, with easy access to the local saltmarsh, Holme Dunes nature reserve and Thornham beach. We really enjoyed the apple juice in the welcome pack! Please try out the Thornham circular walk it's well worth it!! The cottage stayed really cool during the 2 hottest days on record!! Some attention to detail in preparing the cottageRead more for the next visitors is needed... We would definitely stay here again... Hide

Brent cottage is in a wonderful location from which to explore the North Norfolk coastline. It is easy to walk out and access the N Norfolk Coastal Path. On our visit the cottage was a little lacking in care and attention and there were NO cleaning materials save for a tiny bottle of detergent and a sponge, nothing to clean the bath or the loo. TheRead more beds however were very comfortable and the views from the front bedroom are simply stunning. Hide

A late booking and things weren't properly ready for our arrival so our ratings are coloured by that, but nevertheless the cottage was rather dated and in cold weather the use of the open fire is a necessity!

Brent cottage is a cosy and comfortable property with a lot of character. It is an excellent and very peaceful location. It is not grand by any means but I feel that this is reflected by the very reasonable letting rates in what is a very popular and expensive area of North Norfolk.

Cottage was lovely and in a great location with the coastal path at the end of the road. For anyone with reduced mobility, the stairs to the bedrooms were steep (which we were aware of before booking). We had a lovely stay and would book again in the future .

We had a wonderful holiday. This is very good value for money given the location and the 3 bedrooms. Its simple and old fashioned - dont expect a powerful shower! Also the front room is small but the weather was so good we were outside all day & then slept in comfy beds!

This cottage is in a perfect location and has a view over the marshs through the hedge line if you dont mind basic unmodernised accommodation then it represents value for money in the off season. The open fire is cozy but no logs are provided so bring your own.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
