A perfect place for two set within a landscaped oasis: from arriving in the front garden, to the private courtyard and the raised pond at the back, which could be viewed from every window, you felt encased in peace. The property was beautifully furnished, done with a lot of care and the bathroom was very spacious! Close to the sea and amenities. ThRead moree owners were friendly and very helpful. All-in-all, a light, airy, peaceful gem. Hide

We stayed for a long weekend (3 nights) at May Cottage, in the Sandringham Suite and thoroughly enjoyed our stay; just wished we could have stayed for longer, we left feeling very relaxed. The accommodation is excellent, tastefully decorated & caters for all your needs. The owners, Carol & Geoff, have thought of everything to ensure your stay is meRead moremorable. We couldnt fault anything. We would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation nor revisiting should we visit this area again. 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?
