Lovely location, easy to get to other places of interest. Local pubs very good , with warm welcome and good food. The property is perfect size for family get togethers however cleanliness is an issue. I would expect it to be spotless for the money we paid. The bedrooms are looking tired and could do with painting and bit of TLC around cracks in walRead morels. We would visit again, just needs a bit of attention to detail and it would be perfect. Hide

Lovely house, minimal but practical and some great artwork. Location was perfect for a cycle ride to a choice of pubs. We had great weather and made good use of the garden and excellent local beaches.

Samphire Cottage was a comfortable, clean and well equipped house, perfect for a family holiday. The beds were very comfy and once wed worked out the heating, we were very cosy! The location is great for walks and facilities, and near to lots of places to visit. Being a real foodie, it made a refreshing change to stay in a kitchen which was well eqRead moreuipped with plenty of dishes, and utensils, as well as crockery and glasses.

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?
