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.

The Coach House is decorated to a very high standard and is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. The bedroom is massive and the bed is huge. The kitchen is fully equiped for any need and the living room has two very comfortable sofas and a decent TV along with a decent collection of DVDs to watch. Paula and Tom are wonderful and friendly hosts. They made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and gave great recomendations for palces to eat but also gave you your own space so that you can enjoy the property and grounds at your own leasure. The property is tucked away in a quiet place but only a few minutes drive from shops and cinema if you need them. It is in a perfect location to use as a base for exploring Norfolk and Lincolnshire. Very highly recommended!!

The location is fabulous, and close to the beach, harbour, great walks, restaurants, and shopping. Views were spectacular in different lights and at different times of the day. It is rare to find such luxury in a self catering cottage and everything we needed was provided. Having parking was a real plus in Wells as we have previously parked over half a mile from our car, and finding somewhere lovely which accepts dogs is rare. Although the cottage does have a garden, it is not adjoining the cottage so we walked the quayside in our pyjamas early morning and late night for their "comfort breaks" but with so few people around at these times, I think we got away with it. Jane replied to all our messages very quickly and was very helpful in assisting with any concerns we had before we arrived. I am already looking forward to a return visit!

We had 20 staying and were impressed with the facilities. Plenty of space to spread out, the house was lovely and warm and a pool out in the garden was the cherry on top. Fish and Chip shop down the road serves great food and Wells isn't far. A visit to Holt can provide a decent afternoon tea. There was plenty of food storage space and hot water running. We would recommend a visit.
