A lovely spacious property in a quiet setting. Perfect for anyone who likes a peaceful holiday. It is well set up with the equipment & furnishings all being good quality.

Lovely bungalow with a typical English Cottage garden which can be enjoyed from the delightful conservatory. Great location from which you can easily join the walks along the Cley marshes and enjoy the big skies of the Norfolk coast in just a few minutes walk from the cottage. We had a great holiday!

We all enjoyed the cottage a lot. We have rented all manner of properties in area over the years and Church Lane Cottage is the fourth in Cley. Although the cottage hasn't had the full 'Norfolk' decor treatment it has a nice homely feel and the location is superb. We will more than likely stay again.

Great cosy cottage for exploring the North Norfolk Coast. Tucked away from the cost road traffic but easy to walk to deli, pub and WT Cley Marshes reserve.

Quiet and spacious cottage that suited our family well. We enjoyed being able to eat out in the garden in the sunshine or in the conservatory when the weather got damp. Plenty of space on the comfy sofa too. A v short walk to the deli, bakery, pub and windmill.

The cottage has everything you need and is comfortable.

Church lane Cottage is in a very pretty village and with good links to the rest of the area. The cottage itself is in need of some updating and modernisation. The sofa was unusable for one of our party as it was so low and too well used. The family photos made us feel uncomfortable and have no place in a cottage let out to visitors. It was, on the Read moresurface, clean but did not stand up to close inspection. However because it wasn't pristine we were not too worried about having the dog with us. Hide

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?
