Comfy, warm, excellent bed and shower. The owners stay there themselves sometimes, hence the attention to detail and quality fitments. Small courtyard at the back rather bare but there are a few pot plants. A garden like the next door property would have been nice but that was extended by land purchase. Very convenient for wildlife sites and the HuRead morenstanton shops. Would certainly stay there again if in the area. Hide

A delightful cottage in a perfect location convenient for visiting the attractions of West and North Norfolk. Everything we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday was provided. Excellent choice of local cafes and restaurants close to the cottage and the village shop & Post Office was very handy. So close to the beach at Old Hunstanton just a fRead moreew minutes stroll away. We can thoroughly recommend Sleepy Gull and hope to visit again in future. Hide

Lovely warm cosy cottage. Ideally situated with easy walk to the beach. Also, good beach walking. Cottage very comfortable with sunny courtyard. Local shop just up the road sells almost everything. Should love to return there.

Beautifully presented property with extremely well-equipped kitchen. Comfy beds and sofas. Good location for exploring North Norfolk coast, Kings Lynn and Sandringham, or for a restful break staying local and walking between beach and local pubs and restaurants. Plenty more good eating places a little further afield. The welcoming goodies were a veRead morery nice touch. Hide

Location

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?
