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!

We had our annual work summer party here this July and all 28 of us had an incredible time. Facilities were brilliant and everything we needed was available. We even managed to set up a sports day in the grounds! Thank you for making it 'the best summer party of all time' and me the most popular member of the agency :) thank you very much Clair and the team. Jess

There were 6 of us, including 2 young kids, so it was nice and spacious for us. The owners clearly make an effort with nice touches like having sky sports and papers delivered on a sunday, and were flexible with our arrival time. The kitchen was well equipped, there were plenty of toys for the kids - and the grown-ups! The patio area is lovely, with a good bbq which we used, and the garden is a huge play area. So, as a property, it was perfect for us. The property is isolated and peaceful, so you definitely need a vehicle to get around. Location wise, it's roughly 20 minutes to several nice beaches, such as Sherringham, West Runton and Cromer. Plenty of others are not much further, and its about half an hour to Norwich. Holt is a nice village a few minutes up the road, with a few places to eat or get a takeaway, and handy for stocking up on provisions. We would happily stay there again and would recommend it for any family who want to use it as a base for seeing Norfolk, but don't need everything right on their doorstep.

We really couldn’t have asked for or found a more perfect venue for my husband’s Birthday celebration. Thank You. Sally came on Saturday night with her team and the meal she prepared for us was terrific, please tell her how much we appreciated her efforts and the great BD cake. On top of a great place to have a family party, Phil Barnes came to take photos also a recommendation from the website. The weather could not have been better – A terrific weekend – we had lots and lots of fun and probably too much food and drink. Ros and Family
