Brinton is well placed for exploring the splendid coastline and pretty country villages that abound in this beautiful part of Norfolk. There is excellent walking and cycling along quiet lanes with many footpaths to explore. The sea and coastal marshes are only six miles away and two magnificent sandy beaches backed with pine woods with plenty of walks and cycle trails can be found a little further along the coast at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham; easily accessible in a short drive. The town of Holt offers boutique shopping, a great food store and plenty of pubs, coffee shops and restaurants to discover. Whilst here do not miss out on a gorgeous steam railway journey along the coast to Sheringham. National Trust houses at Felbrigg and Blickling and glorious parkland at Sheringham should also be on your ‘to do’ list.


We have had a fabulous time staying here over the new year and exploring north Norfolk. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. Thank you !

Sam T,

A totally brilliant little house. I come to Norfolk a lot with the children and grandchildren and we have stayed in lots of different places but this house takes some beating ! I hope to come back again soon.

Zach M,

Our first time exploring Norfolk and we really enjoyed ourselves in this lovely cottage. We enjoyed the amazing beach at Wells and Holkham Hall. We will be back !

Andrew P,
