Giles and I had a brilliant week at the cottage. The location was brilliant. We had no problems with parking. The layout of the cottage was amazing considering how small it was. It contained everything needed for a holiday stay.We would consider staying there again; we've already recommended it to some friends. Hope to be in contact with you again some time soon. Mr & Mrs Lloyd, Suffolk

Mr & Mrs Turton from Gloucestershire; really enjoyed there first Norfolk holiday, cottage was very comfortable, with everything we needed.

Lorraine and John from Essex; described the cottage as "cute and cosy" (stayed in Feb09)

Mrs Durrant from Peterborough was concerned that parking would be a problem, however it proved very easy to find parking each afternoon / evening.

Excellent bade for a relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is exactly as described and the photos are totally accurate (not always the case). The cottage is small but compact and had everything we needed during our stay. It is set back from the main road but was surprisingly quiet, considering how close it was to "the hub". Plenty of pubs and restaurants to chose from and a good base for touring the local area. Good customer relations from the owner and all the access info etc was spot on. Would definitely reccomend this property.

Small, very central. Good value..

  • 3 of 5

Overall very good. Enjoyed the central location and was impressed with the detailed helpful advice about parking. Overall the property was good. The bedroom would have been much more comfortable without the single bed. This made it very cramped. All the facilities were seemingly designed for two people so could not see the point of the extra bed. Instructions in the property were again overall very good with the exception of the advice re adding electricity. No advice was found in the house and it was only meeting the ex "housekeeper " who showed us where to "add" the electricity. Otherwise we would have had to ring the owner. There was a booklet giving details of previous tenants additions but that did not give the advice we and future tenants need.

Bathroom could do with a refresh in the not too distant future. Overall we felt the property was good value. We would certainly look at owners direct in future.

Small but perfectly formed

  • 5 of 5

The booking and details of my stay were very well managed. When I got to the cottage I was very pleased with the directions and found it easily. It is very small but very well laid out. Everything is there that you need. The heating was efficient and heated the space quickly even though it was very cold outside. The cottage is full of personal touches and even had a fully decorated Christmas tree. I like how it is in the centre of town but tucked away and quiet. I had a good chat to a neighbour who told me that the fishermen would dry their net upstairs and would sleep downstairs. I would recommend this cottage and it's lovely owners.

Comfortable, child friendly cottsge

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a good location not far from the cafes, restaurants and seafront. It was clean and had everything in it for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed it very much and a suitable place for a child to stay.parking on the unrestricted streets was easy. Booking the property was straightforward and all the information provided by the owner was detailed and very useful. I recommend this place undoubtedly. It has everything you need and more.

The beach is 2 minute walk away along the main High Street. Sheringham has a lovely promenade. The beach at low tide is sandy, ideal for making sand castles. At high tide the beach is shingle. Rock pools at West Runton, just 5 minutes away.


Sheringham main line station (Norwich 1 hour) or the famous Poppy line steam railway station is just one minute walk away. Driving time from Norwich airport is 30-40 minutes. Coastal Hooper service runs from Railway Station, take bus either way along coast all year round.


Holt for designer shopping is 10 minutes away by car or why not go by steam train! Cromer is 10 minutes away by car to test your crabbing skills on the pier. Sheringham Park NT is just 2 minutes away by car, climb the massive Gazebo for the best view in Norfolk. Muckleburgh military collection just 5 minutes by car, drive a tank rather than your car! Blackney point is 15 minutes away by car to enjoy a boat trip to watch the seals.

Further Details:

You’ll be spoilt for choice with several fine fish and chip shops, choice of exotic takeaways, great pubs a range of cafes and a selection of restaurants. Alternatively you could purchase Shellfish from the “Stall” towards the front.

Beach hut seaside café on the Promenade. Our daughter Ellie loves the cafe as she loves their little dog! Whelk Coopers tearooms overlooking the sea on the Promenade. Lunch box on the High Street is recommended for sandwiches. Number ten very good for lunches and evening meals. No One the Bistro overlooking the sea we have heard is very good. Thai restaurant on High Street towards the Seafront. We’ve had a lovely evening meal here, without the kids? Our favorite Fish and chip shop is the tiny one just past Sainsbury’s or the yellow fronted F&C shop down the street opposite.
