Beautifully situated near the heart of the town, but no noise, very little traffic, ideal spot.

This delightful cottage is so well equipped!

The thought that has gone into providing not just the essentials but the many welcoming touches, indicates a home owner who is not just hiring out a home, but wants the hirers to be feel totally welcome, at ease, well provided for and comfortable in body and mind. Thank you!

Great Property for Seaside Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic New Year break at Twizzle Cottage, the facilities were great for our 2 families. The location is perfect for town & beach and area is lovely.

The hospitality from Sharon was spot on and we were made to feel very welcome on our arrival, knowing we could contact her should we need anything.

I would recommend this property to others

You are welcome to return should you wish to revisit Sheringham and I am glad it kicked off your New Year well! Sharon

Outstanding! Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in Sheringham with an old dear friend who lived in Sheringham from 1956-1962. Sharon was the epitome of a graciously, helpful, and wonderful host. From booking coordination to arrival to having a snack and tea for us when we arrived. There were five of us, including two elderly ladies, and got along famously. All the amenities were in great working order, and we couldn't have had a better stay. I recommend this enthusiastically.

Owner's Response: If I had to sum these guests up in one word I would have to say "perfect!" Such a lovely group of guests who were an absolute pleasure to host. The cottage was left so clean and tidy you wouldn't know anyone had been staying there! I am so glad they were able to relive past memories from over 20years ago in Sheringham and enjoyed Twizzle Cottage as their base. My guests travelled from America to be here (my first overseas visitors to the cottage)and are more than welcome to return if they ever have the opportunity. I would recommend without doubt to any other hosts on Airbnb as they were simply marvellous. Thankyou all! KIndest regards, Sharon Horton

Excellent family holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this well equipped cottage, enjoying its many features and modern equipment. Sharon, the owner made us very welcome with thoughtful little extras that appealed to the whole family.

The cottage is situated in the heart of Sheringham just a short walk from all the good shops, pubs and restaurants which makes it ideal for a family holiday. Our children especially loved the beaches - rowing on the lake at Holkham Hall and a trip on the steam train to Holt. We visited and enjoyed the beautiful National Trust areas and the trip to see the seals was just wonderful.

This property is most definitely recommended by all six of us - three generations.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving feedback,it is good to know all 3 generations were catered for with the cottage itself,the facilities and the location. It is good to know you don't need to use your car as there is plenty to do within walking distance of the front door! Thank you so much for leaving Twizzle Cottage immaculately clean and tidy too! We hope you will be able to return as it was a pleasure to meet you and have such wonderful guests. thank you, Sharon
