Welcome to the Norfolk Cottages media centre
Norfolk is a stunning county rich in vast skies, expansive landscapes, mesmerising beaches and beautiful countryside. Norfolk also boasts many impressive stately homes, pretty villages, historic market towns and ancient churches – all gaining popularity with TV and film crews. Norfolk is renowned for doing things a bit different, which means new, quirky restaurants, experiences and events are always popping up. Perfect fodder for news stories and features (please see links to some of our recent coverage below).
FAM trip and crew accommodation:
We are keen to help gain Norfolk headline and TV coverage. So, if you’re planning a FAM trip, photo shoot or filming, we’d be happy to help with accommodation. We too, have a huge portfolio of properties ranging from expansive barn conversions to coastal gems, worthy of their own feature alone!
Likewise, we have a huge bank of professional photography spanning the whole of the county from January to December. We would be happy to share our photography for a simply credit.
We are known to like a competition or two, especially when it features a holiday in one of our cottages! If you require a prize for a high-circulation magazine or paper, tv show or popular online blog, please get in touch.
If you would like to enquire about any of the above please contact Lucy Downing on 01263 569219 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or alternatively, Rebecca Scrase PR on 01449 677033, 07985 973973 or
