Saxthorpe is a small village which sits betwixt the lovely market towns of Aylsham and Holt. Situated in the heart of the Norfolk countryside the location is superb for exploring the many attractions of the area. The National Trust Blicking Hall is virtually on the doorstep and its historic buildings, delightful gardens and parkland are a joy. Cromer and its sandy beach are a mere 12 miles away as are the coastal villages of Blakeney and Stiffkey, where the marshes are renowned for their birdwatching opportunities as is the RSPB site at Cley. The village sits on the boundaries of Corpusty which can be reached by public footpath and has an open all hours village shop and pub which serves great food.

Reviews

This property is an aceMr A Smith - 16th September 2016
Recommend to eat at The Pigs and The Walpole Arms.Mrs H Bateman - 21st July 2016
Lovely welcome pack which was much appreciated.Mr M Emberson - 30th May 2016
We travelled with a disabled relative and found the property excellent for their use. The Bure Valley Railway and Broads boat trip was an excellent outing with assistance readily available.Mrs Linda Macquillin - 25th April 2016
A fantastic little cottage in a great location - just right for day trips to the beach and the Norfolk Broads. The owners were very accommodating, even providing an Easter welcome pack. We had everything we needed for a long weekend; a very clean cottage, comfy beds and arm chairs, well planned kitchen. Terrific!Ms G Flint - 4th April 2016
Everything you need and more. Lots of space very clean and comfortable.Mrs G Wilmot - 12th October 2015
We were all very impressed with the cottage and the owners were very helpful, really going the extra mile to make our stay a good one.Mrs Chris Robotham - 28th September 2015
A great property situated in an ideal location for exploring North Norfolk...Ms C Jenkins - 18th August 2015
a very peaceful place to stay.Ms J Meredith - 29th June 2015
Very happy with the accommodation, the owners were great too. Welcomed with a bottle of wine and excellent home-made cake. Flowers were given to my mother who was going to be 90. Such attention to detail, the kindness and hospitality made our holiday special. We would recommend this property.Ana Wiles - 16th June 2014
