Picturesque, characterful and family friendly, The Drift is an attractive cottage tucked away in a small hamlet, yet close to many of north Norfolk’s best attractions, not least the coastline, much of which is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cottage, originally built in the 1850’s, makes a comfortable and cosy holiday home. The conservatory with underfloor heating, the sitting room with a wood burner for cooler days and the attractive garden to the rear, create a year-round relaxing atmosphere and a warm welcome. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, whilst on the ground floor the conservatory overlooks the garden and the kitchen is well equipped. Dog friendly too, there are some lovely walks from the doorstep to enjoy and the award winning pub at Hunworth, The Hunny Bell, is close by. Shop: 4 miles/Pub: 2 miles

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 scenic 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.


Great cottage within easy reach of many lovely activities – try the North Norfolk railway, Bishops boats for a seal trip to Morston, Blakeney and Cromer are great for crabbing. We recommend the Red lion in Cromer, the Three Swallows Cley-on-Sea and the Bell in Dereham.
