We have really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It is so well equipped and made it so much easier to enjoy a holiday with a 3 and 1 year old. We loved playing (and swimming) at Cromer beach, the steam train at Sheringham, the chips, the pirate play area at the seafront, the swimming pool at Sheringham, Wells next the Sea, and the RNLI museum was great, even for a 3 year old. Thank you for a lovely stay!The Houghton family - 23rd September 2018
Lovely and very clean cottage in great location.Mr Gero Schipmann - 4th April 2018
We were looking for a very last minute getaway (our arrival date was that day!) From my initial phone call, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Within a few minutes of explaining what we wanted, I’d received an email containing links of lots of available properties to choose from. After making a short choice, I called back and within the hour we had booked and we’re on our way to what turned out to be a lovely cottage! We had direct contact from the owner too, with extra information - he was determined that while we had booked at short notice, we would still get the full pre arrival treatment. I’d highly recommend Norfolk Country Cottages.Mrs Katherine Hesketh - 22nd February 2018
We have a really lovely stay in Coastguards Cottage over the New Year period. The Cottage is the perfect location, easy parking and access to the best that North Norfolk has to offer! The kitchen is very well equipped and the bathroom is very spacious and a lovely shower! Matt and Abby were great with communication and really nice people to deal with. We will definitely be returning!Ms Charlotte Brooks - 4th January 2018
What a perfect autumn hideaway for our half-term family holiday. The house is wonderfully equipped for a young family which made for a stressless travel and stay. The Batchelor Party - 28th October 2017
We have had a brilliant stay in your cottage - it has had everything we needed & the books and toys were a great addition to our 2 year old. Highlights of our week were playing in the sea at Overstrand beach when the tide came in, visiting Horsey wind pump, Wroxham Barns, and biking from the cottage. Back to the Garden was lovely for a brunch stop. Thank you for the local recommendations - we tried lots of them and were always pleased we did. Many thanks. The Mathewman Family - 23rd September 2017
It's been a tremendously sunny week, made all the brighter by being able to stay - in such a lovely house. Thank you for your warm welcome.

Beautiful cottage - you have thought of everything. Had a fantastic stay and loved pottering around Cromer - the kids loved the fish & chips from No 1 Cromer. Bewilderwood made a fab day out too. We drove to Horsey Windpump and were fortunate enough to see hundreds of seal pups on the beach. Amazing! The wine was a lovely touch and the attention to detail from Matt & Abby was fantastic - wonderful communication throughout the whole booking process. Cannot wait to come back and try out the BBQ in the summer. Thanks.The Simmons Crew - 21st April 2017

Breakfast at the RNLI cafe overlooking the sea, walking up to the lighthouse and then along the beach, paddling at Holkham, and seal watching at Morston Quay to name just a few. Thanks for everything.The Francis Family - 10th April 2017
