This is a great part of the county for walkers, birdwatchers and cycling under big open blue skies with Stubb Mill and Hickling Nature Reserve a short walk down the road.

If you don’t know this part of Norfolk you are in for a treat!  The Broads National Park are practically on the doorstep and one of the largest of the Broads is Hickling Broad, a haven for wildlife and looked after by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, who do tours in the summer months, it is easy to spend time away from the world along the marked trails and let the day drift away, don’t forget a picnic.  The fabulous east coast beaches are also nearby and often underpopulated even in the summer months, family friendly with soft sands the beach at Sea Palling, just 5 miles away, has been given the prestigious Blue Flag safe beach award this year.  Iconic coastal landmarks such as Horsey Windpump and Happisburgh Lighthouse with its candy red and white stripes should not be missed and the resident seal colony at Horsey Gap is about as close to nature as you can get; if you are here in the winter months the new pups can be seen too.  A series of Quiet Lanes, that have been designated as rural roads for less traffic, abound in the area, which is great for walkers and cyclists alike and the cultural city of Norwich is worthy of a day’s outing to take in the culture, a bit of retail therapy and so much more.

A lovely, clean, cottage and ideal for our purposes - sailing and cycling. A warm welcome awaited us, with fresh milk in the fridge and home made jams for us to try. The bike shed was especially useful as we had two bikes and one was electric. The shed has its own power supply for charging the bike. Only 10 - 15 mins walk from Hickling Broad, the NWT Reserve and the Greyhoud Pub. We would certainly want to come again.Mr D Oakley - 5th October 2018
Very homely feel, making for an enjoyable stay. It's situation lends to easy exploration of North Norfolk and the surrounding area. The quality of the roads in Norfolk are very good for a driving holiday, much better than Surrey. We had a lovely week.Mr Peter Stevenson - 24th September 2018
The best cottage we have stayed in. Have used different companies in the past but Norfolk Country cottages have given me excellent customer service and the cottage we stayed in was absolutely perfect and extremely clean (we are a bit fussy!) Considering going back there again next year. Miss Anthea Slater - 4th September 2018
We really enjoyed our holiday at such a lovely cottage at the super location. We felt at home. Everything we need was there only missing thing was.. a tea cosy! We would love to go back to The Cottage again, thank you so so much.Ms Ikuko Ishiwaki - 11th June 2018
