Great location, magical view and well equiped for a self catering stay. Given our holiday was in the depths of winter it was beautifully warm.

A beautifully appointed cottage with a cosy, contemporary interior and a fabulous view out over the Brancaster marshes. The village has two great pubs, a petrol station and a marvellous local grocery store, alongside some small shops and a super cafe. The perfect property in a perfect location. Couldn't fault it. We had the best Christmas there.

Great position on the coastal road (which is not actually that busy) for easy access to lots of points of interest. 50ft walk to our favourite pub. Great that dogs are welcome. Would love to come back in the summer to make the most of the opening doors from the kitchen. If more than 1 car plenty of parking in the road outside.

An amazing place to stay, clean, modern with the most amazing and constantly changing view you could wish for. The upside down living works perfectly. There is a lot of storage for belongings in the 2 bedrooms. Bathrooms are really clean with good powerful and hot showers. The location is great, next door but one to the pub, village shop a few minuRead moretes walk away either along the road or down the beach track. Tennis courts across the road at the village hall. A few minutes drive to beaches. Hide

We were all more than happy with everything about the cottage. This is our second visit (I was the first to comment in the visitors book).

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?
