We absolutely loved this cottage. It felt like home from the moment we walked in the door. It has four bedrooms which worked perfectly for us (four adults - not couples). As well as the two bathrooms in the cottage, the loo and shower in the outhouse laundry room was an added bonus. The kitchen is well equipped and has a great layout. We spent mostRead more of our time, when in the cottage, sitting around the large table. The cottage location is great, opposite the pub, easy walking to the sea. Hide

A lovely spacious cottage in which to relax, in a quiet little village. It is well situated for a walk to a lovely beach. Provisions can be acquired with a 2 mile drive to Burnham Deepdale and other fairly short drives allow you to explore nearby Holkham Hall and Hunstanton and Sheringham.

A beautiful cottage very tastefully decorated, not the usual 'holiday' home. Lovely position, we thought that being near the road it would be noisy but not at all. A short walk to the coast and a lovely pub opposite. The Egg barbeque was fantastic and cooked our roast beef perfectly. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us, we would love Read moreto return. 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?
