This is a lovely cosy cottage in an ideal location, just a short walk from the most glorious beach and a short drive to the local woods. We had everything we needed back in the cottage including the wood burning stove for a cosy evening. I would recommend the local pub where the welcome was warm and the food was great. We also used the dog friendlyRead more cafe Sugar and Spice which was amazing for breakfast and cake stops. Hide

Everything was beautifully arranged and in good order. We enjoyed our stay and would book again in the future. The location was perfect for us with the beach so handy. The only thing I found slightly awkward was the mirrors in bedroom and bathroom too high! Perhaps Im too short!

We loved Fisherman's Cottage and had a lovely stay there. On the whole it was well fitted and comfortable, but we found it would have been even better with a few adjustments (see above). We were grateful for the milk and biscuits that were left for us, and would recommend the cottage to others wanting a quiet stay in a lovely part of Norfolk. GreatRead more location too, really close to the beach. Hide
