Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Norfolk

Norfolk is a mainly flat, ‘big sky’ county. It offers a vibrant mix of sea and countryside holiday cottages amidst miles of serene, deserted beaches dotted with quaint fishing villages and resorts, such as Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea. Holkham and Wells beach are the ones that regularly win ‘Best Beach’ awards and yet, still remain rarely crowded, making them ideal getaway spots.

Spend the day on the water inland, exploring the Norfolk Broads teeming with wildlife. Go exploring and chance on a farmer’s market, such as one in Kings Lynn, or visit nearby Houghton Hall – a magnificent country house that often has events going on. Also worth a visit is the coastal town of Cromer, where Amazona Zoo can be found, making for an excellent family day out. Cromer is also where The Weaver’s Way begins, a footpath that twists and turns all the way to Great Yarmouth, over 50 miles away. While visiting Norfolk’s lovely villages and towns, you’ll likely chance on a farmer’s market, where fresh local produce and drinks are available. These are perfect for topping up supplies for fine feasts of local food back at your holiday cottage.
