This cottage is one of the best we have ever been to. It is very comfortable and so thoughtfully equipped. The sunroom is a real bonus -- great for watching the partridges and other birds. Lovely peaceful location but convenient for visiting places of interest.

It was a lovely cottage, the location and the view was amazing. If there was any walkways next to the cottage would have been better.

This is our fifth time at Southmill Cottage, We just love the peace & quite. Fakenham just a few minutes away for all our needs. Just hope that we will be able to climb the stairs if we come again.

Reviewed by Chris 26th April 2019

We have stayed in many cottages over the years but have to say this is truly the cleanest and best equipped one we have ever stayed in. The owner was there to greet us on arrival day and left contact numbers in case we had any problems. For us the location was ideal, we loved the peace and quiet and watching the local wildlife, but a car is requireRead mored should you wish to tour the area. Nice touch was that all the welcome goodies were local. 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?
