This is the perfect time of year to stay on the coast in Norfolk. We’ve got so many beaches here, there’s plenty to choose from. You might want to swim in the sea, go for long walks or simply sunbathe. Norfolk’s beautiful coastline has something for everyone. From the coast you also have access to areas of outstanding natural beauty, local attractions, signed walks, the Broads and much more!
If you like to be quite independent when on holiday then a self-catering cottage would be best for you. The same goes if you want a bit of privacy and don’t fancy staying in a hotel.
We’ve been looking at Norfolk Country Cottages for some inspiration when it comes to Norfolk coast holiday cottages. Here are some of our favourites.
Barn Drift, Cley
This five star self-catering cottage is situated in the beautiful coastal town of Cley. The accommodation is a huge 18th Century barn conversion featuring eight bedrooms, broadband, coastal views and can sleep up to 14 people. This is perfect if you are planning a large family getaway in North Norfolk.
On arrival you’ll get a welcome hamper featuring all sorts of local goodies. The barn is full equipped with a kitchen but if you prefer to eat out, there’s a restaurant just one mile away.
The Gingerbread House, Hunstanton
We love this house, simply for the charming name, which comes from the fact it’s made from carrstone – also know as gingerbread stone. It’s a four star house located in the centre of Hunstanton and is just a short walk from the beach, pubs, shops and restaurants.
The six bedrooms can sleep 14 people. It’s a house full of old and new features. There’s high ceilings, servants bells and period fireplaces. But there are modern amenities such as broadband, DVD players, private parking and a washing machine.
This pretty little cottage is just one mile from the beach and half a mile from the local pub. It sleeps 11 and offers ample space inside. Not to mention the beautiful gardens! Walcott’s sandy beach is perfect for days spent sunbathing or playing in the sea. You’re also within easy reach of the famous Norfolk Broads.
The Old Barn, Weybourne
This stunning little barn would be perfect for a couple who wanted to get away for a weekend. It’s set down a quiet lane is is just a couple of minutes walk from the beach. There are shops and pubs within easy reach too. This would make a great base for exploring Norfolk. This area is amazing for long romantic walks around the quiet lanes and on the beach.
While you’re here you should visit the Muckleburgh Military collection and take the three mile cliff top path along to Sheringham.
