A lovely cosy well presented clean and bright cottage. Very much home from home. The garden was a brilliant size and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves. With the garden being fenced in we had no worries they would get out and they were totally safe. We are going back in May.

Superb in every way, beautifully finished, a credit to the owners. Quiet location, a bit out of the way but this made it very peaceful. Our 'Goldy' loved the garden which is very well kept and totally enclosed. Five stars with no reservations.

The cottages was spacious and had excellent heating and double glazing. The furnishings were first class. Parking was adjacent to the cottage and there was a large garden and a patio with seating for warmer weather. Everything was supplied so all we had to do was buy food. The owners were friendly and kept a low profile. The history of the site gavRead moree it an added interest. 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?
