House in Ringstead, Nr. Hunstanton, North Norfolk, England - Only A Couple Of Miles To Hunstanton, Brancaster And A Few More To Burnham Market

The village has a pub serving food, a large playground and a locally stocked shop (with curios for sale) all within walking distance.

The house can accommodate 6 guests (+ 1 baby) and prices include all bills, linen (not towels) and tea towels. A high chair and travel cot are provided (but not baby linen).

About the Owner

My husband and I live in Essex but we love spending time in Norfolk. Ringstead is that hidden gem: close to the beaches but just off the coast road. Children and families all love it!

First class

  • 5 of 5

Another first class stay at Manningham House. Since we first visited three years ago the house has been lovingly maintained with great attention to detail and offered the space, quality and ambience that we look for in holiday accommodation. Local activities are plentiful, from a lazy lunch at the nearby Gin Trapp pub and walk along the Peddars Way, to kayaking off Huntstanton Beach and being watched by curious seals. I'm pretty sure we'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments and we are pleased that you appreciated the improvements we have made recently to Manningham House. The spaciousness and comfort of the house are much appreciated by our guests, as they can really relax in the two sitting rooms and kitchen diner. You are right about there being so much to do in the locality and you will find there is still plenty more new things to try next time you visit.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in every way. What more can we say.

Visited with elderly relatives, everything was great from booking, info, accuracy of photos and details provided. Location great, we walked for miles from house, cycled for miles from house, and did memory trips out with the elderly relatives. The local shop and pub are a hugger asset to keep less mobile entertained.

Peaceful, comfortable, not lacking in any way.

We were so lucky to find this property and would recommend it to anyone, any family group. Just wished it was our house!

Thank you

Owner's Response: Very pleased you found everything as expected and that you were happy with your stay in Ringstead. For a small village we are fortunate to have a popular pub and a well-stocked shop, as well as the church, playground and nursery. All only a few miles from the sandy beaches for which Norfolk is so famous.

Warm and welcoming. Perfect location and property

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is lovely. From the Open fireplaces to the well appointed kitchen to the lovely deep bath in the family bathroom. It has a beautiful Aga in the kitchen as well as a modern oven and hob. There are plenty of utensils, cutlery and crockery for 6 people. All the rooms are more than large enough for the whole party (should you have 6 people attending). The En-suite is very spacious, the beds are extrememly comfortable and the duvets are thick and warm. The added bonus of the second reception room (or as we called it "the quiet lounge") is great. The garden is a sun-trap in the afternoon and it was lovely to see the baby rabbits coming in to the garden morning and evening. The location is excellent. It is far enough off the beaten track to be near silent in the evening (we sat out and listened to the owls hooting in the woods nearby in the evening) yet close enough to the coast to feel "by the seaside". The local shop is a little treasure trove and the location of the local pub is great but do book early as it is VERY popular.

The owner is very helpful with information and assistance. It is clean, tidy and has all the "home comforts".

All in all a fantastic weekend, with everything you could want either in a house or in a location.

Well worth the 5* rating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Manningham House and Ringstead so much. Being warm and comfortable on holiday is key to a relaxing and fun time, especially in winter, and we do try to ensure that our house is (almost) a home from home. Do hope you will book with us next time you visit our area of Norfolk.

Cosy house for a winter break

  • 5 of 5

Manningham House is an elegant building and very spacious inside. We walked straight into a warm welcoming kitchen on a very cold day. The whole house felt cosy, and was very clean with comfortable beds, and lovely duvets and pillows. The village is peaceful and friendly and in an excellent location for exploring the area. We need to visit again in the summer to make the most of the garden that gets the afternoon sun. Good secure parking space. A really lovely holiday home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments about our house in RIngstead and we were glad to hear that you were warm and comfortable during that cold snap. We look forward to welcoming you back in the warmer weather when you will find it is very easy to while away the sunny days in the garden, having a bbq and playing table-tennis.

Relaxing break in a home from home

  • 5 of 5

Felt instantly at home in this well equipped, warm house! Plenty of space for 4 adults and 2 children and good location to reach the coast, a quick drive away. Superb kitchen with aga and also electric oven and local pub the Gin Trap is opposite too for great food & local shop sells everything you need - if your thinking about booking this house then don't hesitate, its lovely!

Owner's Response: Very pleased that you enjoyed staying in our house in Ringstead. You are right - it is homely and well located, just off the beaten track but so close to the coast. We love the Ringstead Stores as well - where else can you browse through knick-knacks and stock up on food supplies both in the same shop?

Location

From the Owner

Norfolk is simply stunning! The huge expanses of sandy beaches never cease to amaze us. In winter they offer bracing walks and in the height of summer holidays they can still feel remote. Norfolk is known for its huge skies, often portrayed by local artists and photographers. The pubs, the farm shops, the fish shops all keep us well fed during our stay and the car goes back home laden with goodies for the following week. Manningham House used to be our regular weekend bolt hole from London as it is only just over two hours by car. Having moved to the countryside we still enjoy our visits to the most beautiful coastline in the UK!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Norwich at 41 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Gin Trap, Ringstead at 20 Metres Nearest Golf : Hunstanton at 2 Miles Nearest Train : Kings Lynn at 17 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The Gin Trap, Ringstead at 20 Metres Nearest Beach : Old Hunstanton Beach at 2.5 Miles Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Peddars Way (Norfolk Coastal Path) is a popular National Trail that passes directly through Ringstead and many walkers stop off at the Gin Trap for refreshment. Walking just sections of Peddars Way is possible.

Coast/Beach:

Hunstanton and Old Hunstanton Beaches are only 5-10 mins away.

Our favourite is Holme Dunes National Nature Reserve, again 5 mins away. It is more remote and parking is available at the entrance to Beach Road or at the Norfolk Wildlife Trust information centre at the end.

Brancaster Beach is 10 mins away. There is a small fee for the car park and a small beach shop selling ice-creams and beach toys. Just walk 5 mins from the entrance to be completely alone

Holkham and Wells are 15 miles aw

Travel:

The Coastal Hopper bus runs along the coast road although it is almost essential to have a car to reach many of the places of interest.

Cycling is also a popular option along the coast.

The nearest train station is Kings Lynn, about 20 mins away.

Distances:

Hunstanton is only a couple of miles away, with supermarkets and a variety of shops.

Heacheam, 1 mile away, has a farm shop at Norfolk Lavender and other small shops.

Burnham Market is 8 miles away with plenty of interesting independent shops and art galleries.

Farm shops and fish shops are plentiful on the coast road, particularly around Thornham and Brancaster.

Facilities

From the Owner

The village of Ringstead is perfectly located: only 5-10 minutes from the beaches and coast road but also in the tranquility of the countryside. It is well catered for with a shop, pub, playground, antiques centre and garden centre - good for browsing. We always come away with something we never knew we needed! For those wanting a quiet time, the back garden of Manningham House is a suntrap and many an afternoon is spent having a bbq and wandering across to the pub.
