A perfect cottage for our family holiday (5 & 2 year olds) It had everything we could have needed and was brilliantly kitted out for kids. Comfy beds, comfy sofa, just great for a fun & relaxing holiday. For us the highlight of the cottage was the sunny kitchen/dining area, loved it! Excellent location too, short walk to the gorgeous beach with itsRead more lovely beach huts, sand dunes, cliffs, rock pools & WWI shipwreck, lots to explore & entertain. And a great beach cafe there too. Hide

Very comfortable and warm with seaside inspired decor. Large bed and all mod cons. Perfectly positioned for a short walk to the beach and a few minutes drive to bird watching areas along the coast.

Our second visit and we could see from the comments book that many guests have returned, some many times. The local Old Hunstanton beach is beautifully quiet in spring, the tide is out during the morning, so many walks can be taken over sandbanks. The house location is very quiet at night, sleeping isn't a problem!

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?
