Norfolk is a haven for holiday makers, whether you like to stroll on the beach, explore tiny villages and magnificent manor houses inland, or mess about in boats. The North Norfolk coast gives you a feeling of freedom and unlimited space.
And having been a holiday destination for so long, there are enough holiday cottages in Norfolk to suit the most varied tastes and needs. A tiny, restored fisherman's cottage makes the perfect romantic hideaway. Large manor houses have been converted into the perfect holiday home for a large family or party of friends.
Here I've picked cottages in some of my favourite places...
A spacious, light and airy terraced barn conversion, on the edge of the popular Norfolk seaside town of Cromer, this cottage offers an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner, and a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, ideal for guests with limited mobility.
Upstairs in this Cromer cottage the bedrooms are spacious and there is a good-sized landing room outside the main bedroom, perfect for a cot. Outside is an enclosed patio, accessed by French doors, and there is also an enclosed garden to the front.
Dating back to 1715, this former ale house has been sympathetically renovated exposing original beam and brickwork with a perfect twist of contemporary décor to really make this property special. Set over three floors this historic, Grade II listed property offers a wonderful example of the rich character features which make these properties so beautiful.
A real feature is the traditional Norfolk winder staircase, not suitable for guests with limited mobility, but a beautiful part of keeping this cottage as traditional as possible.
Holiday cottages in Norfolk come in all sizes, especially on the gorgeous North Norfolk Coast. So whether you want a romantic hideaway for two or a property grand enough for a wedding party... North Norfolk has it all.
