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.

None of us were disappointed - from the welcome pack to the size and cleanliness of the property. Although we came prepared the outside store (I couldn't resist a peek) contained a treasure-trove of items you might require. We find on reviews that people say many things and make out that properties are either super fantastic or pick at silly little things and I don't believe in doing either. The simple fact is that if we were to return to Winterton-on-Sea then this is the first property I would look at to see if it were free for our stay. This says it all - we took weeks looking at different properties until my wife stumbled across this one which ticked all of our boxes. As an aside the local beach is so close, although we prefer to drive as it is easier to "hose down" the kids with water afterwards, the post office and chip shop you pass on the way as well as the other shop - all handy when returning from the beach, needing a paper and some extra items to make sandwiches. Handy hint for Winterton beach : Don't follow everyone else who go down the slope by the side of the café - instead drive further (just say you want to do this when paying for parking) inside the car park over towards the black huts - there is an additional path there that takes you away from everyone else. Hemsby (for the "slot machines") is a five minute (if that) drive away with a huge choice of arcades - "Mrs B's" suited us for all round family safety - go right in and use the beach car park followed by a round of crazy golf.

Whilst here there was plenty to do we went greyhound racing in nearby Great Yarmouth and there was horse racing, a trip to Horsey to see the seals is a must and a boat trip at Horsey Mere was lovely. I have never been to such a dog friendly place and when I come back I will bring my dog she will love it. All in all a wonderful cottage to stay in a beautiful part of the country.
