Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in Norfolk your home away from home

Norfolk, the northern tip of East Anglia, is a blissfully peaceful rural region in the East of England. Whether you are interested in quiet rural walks, quaint beach holidays, wildlife, history or golf, Norfolk has something to suit every member of your family. Norfolk cottages conjure up images of idyllic thatched homes overlooking the wild Norfolk Broads, but there is a huge amount to discover across the county too.

Things to do on holiday in Norfolk

Renting a Norfolk holiday cottage allows you to escape the pace of everyday life. Wherever you end up in Norfolk, you can rest assured that there will be a picturesque village, historic building or timeless Norfolk public house to investigate. There will certainly be no shortage of market towns filled with little shops, family owned restaurants and farmers markets surrounding your accommodation in Norfolk.

The Norfolk coast is clad in wide sandy beaches, backed with large dunes providing nesting sites for many species of birdlife. Even during the height of summer, you will be able to find a secluded piece of sand on which to lie back and relax. There are a handful of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the Norfolk Coast, which have made the Coastal Path a huge attraction for walkers, cyclists and horse riders staying in accommodation in Norfolk. You can also enjoy a vast number of water sports, notably sailing which has a secured place in the hearts of many Norfolk residents, especially on the Norfolk Broads, during your cottage holiday.

Norfolk’s golf courses make it a prime destination in Britain for golfing holidays. There are beautifully landscaped (mostly flat) golf courses across the county which make taking a Norfolk cottage a real treat for golfers. The many water ways which cross and surround Norfolk mean it is a haven for anglers too. Even if you do not manage to catch that trophy fish, there are always plenty of stories going round the pubs in the evenings!

Places to holiday in Norfolk

Norwich is the county town of Norfolk, and is a fast growing market town which has developed into a delightfully vibrant and cosmopolitan city. Packed with great shops, atmospheric cafes and vibrant bars, Norwich is a great place to spend a day from a Norfolk cottage. Norwich has even been voted in the top 10 shopping destinations in Britain.

Weather in Norfolk

Norfolk is officially the driest place in Britain. With average temperatures of over 25°C in the summer, it is little wonder that people flock to the coast and the Norfolk Broads during the summer. The historic and cultural attractions of the county and the cosy Norfolk cottages provide shelter during the winter, when temperatures average around 5°C.

Travel to Norfolk

Norfolk is easily accessible from across the UK. Train and road networks in the area are magnificent, with train stations found in some very small towns meaning that you can get very close to your accommodation in Norfolk using only public transport if you decide not to take a car.

Absolutely beautiful cottage

5 of 5
I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, everything was perfect, it was spotless on our arrival with all the things you could possibly need, from a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival for that much needed cup of tea to the 3D tv with DVD and blueray films for our enjoyment, my daughter discovered a love of chess which was among the many board games provided, everything about the cottage is perfect, the Village of Northwold in which the cottage is situated is only minutes from Thetford Forest which affords some wonderful walks, if you like jet planes RAF Lakenheath is just a short drive where you can watch fighter jets take off and land, truly breathtaking. My family can't wait to return in the future.

Cosy and peaceful, perfect for a couple's getaway

5 of 5
We loved our time at the Waveney Lodge cottage. We spent most evenings curled up in front of the log fire, but if you wanted to go out for dinner there are plenty of places to eat nearby in Beccles. Angela is a lovely host who puts a lot of thought and care into making sure guests feel at home during their stay. If you're looking for some peace and quiet in the countryside, this is the ideal place!
