The Holkham Estate is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to Holkham Hall, which sits proudly at the centre of the Estate with far-reaching views over the 25,000-acres of historic parkland and woodland. One of the region’s finest and most recognisable Palladian country houses and the ancestral home of the Coke family for more than 400 years. The grounds are ideal for cycling and feature many themed walks and trails, with bike hire available close to the courtyard, restaurant and gift shop. You can even take to the water on the lake during the warmer months of the year. Just outside the walls of Holkham Park is Lady Anne’s Drive which leads down to the wide-sweeping sands and big skies of the dog friendly beach, bordered by pine woods. You will also find yourself spoilt for choice when looking to eat out. The Victoria Inn in the Holkham village serves fantastic local, seasonal cuisine from dawn to dusk, whilst lunch can also be enjoyed at the Hall’s Courtyard Cafe or the charming  Beach Cafe further afield in Wells-next-the-Sea. Wells-next-the-Sea is a lively coastal town with its iconic beach huts and picturesque harbour where you can enjoy fresh shellfish or the catch of the day. Other delights nearby are Burnham Market and its sister villages, Brancaster, Cley-next-the-Sea and the town of Holt to name just a few.


Lovely furnished property and the welcome pack on arrival was very much appreciated. The cost was more than we budget for, so this was a treat, but we very much hope that we can stay again some time in the future.

Mrs Jan P,

The cottage was perfect. Cosy and warm and completely quiet.

Ms Anne C,

Beautiful cottage, well positioned for exploring the coastline and beautiful villages of Norfolk. Fantastic welcome package and fenced garden for our dog who had a ball. Well stocked with kitchenware, comfy beds, quality linen and a good shower. Will definitely come again.

Mrs Karen T,

The only thing we felt was that the property was a little small ... otherwise fantastic!

Mr Chris S,

A fantastic lodge in a great location and very well equipped. The only issue we had was the back door handle didn’t work which resulted in us getting locked out. We called and the property manager arrived within 20 minutes to help us back in. The main sofa was not the most comfortable but overall the lodge was fantastic and we would return.

Mr Scott S,


Previous Customer,

We loved the cottage, everything was very clean and we had everything we needed. Thank you also for the welcome hamper, much appreciated.

Mr Julie N,

Location was quiet, garden safe for dogs, main nature reserves close by Cottage very well appointed

Mrs Carole N,

Perfect cottage in the most amazing location. Close to Holkham and Brancaster Beaches and lots of wonderful North Norfolk villages. Would not recommend to anybody with inquisitive dogs as the boundary is not secure due to no fences.

mrs r l,

Clean, tastefully decorated and welcoming. But probably too Expensive. I felt that a booking fee of £55 was excessive.

Mrs Jane S,

We had a lovely family girls weekend in Cuckoo Lodge and loved visiting HGolkham Hall at Christmas. We would love to come back again some time.

Miss Gemma C,

Cuckoo Lodge very well furnished & equipped compared to other cottages we've stayed in in North Norfolk. Everything worked as it should and provision of firewood was generous. Communication & info from Norfolk Cottages was great as was welcome hamper.

Ms Susan P,

Clear, concise communication in good time before trip, during and after. Quality of accomodation and friendliness of staff came into contact with

Mrs Alyson F,

Great cottage and communications from yourselves; not intrusive but well timed and informative.

Mr Ian B,

The property was delightful and very cosy as well as clean. A few more glasses, a larger pot and items such as a garlic crusher and a blender will be useful. We like to cook and with children, a well designed kitchen in a self-catering cottage is a must. Other than this, we missed a charging point for toothbrushes and a razor in the bathroom. There was a code for a gate to Holkham Hall, but we never figured out where to use this and the Hall staff couldn't help with this either, so this needs clarification in your booklet. We loved the air sourced heat pump! Overall, the cottage was lovely and a very comfortable stay.

Mrs Ilse W,

Superb cottage..faultless. Excellent information regarding booking/access.

Mrs Katrina R,

The efficiency around the booking was outstanding and the cottage itself was idyllic, we had no complaints at all.

Mrs Diana S,

There was no heating instructions. There was also a lot of spiders/dead flies hanging from the ceilings. Behind the main bedroom bed hadn’t been cleaned for months. Also for the rates charged I don’t see why we should have to take the sheets off all before 10am check out. It’s a lots to do before 10am.

Miss Kara J,

Over all we enjoyed our stay. The cottage is beautiful. The track leading to the cottage did have several deep pot holes in that we had to try and avoid else it would have damaged the cars. The garden was advertised as secure, for larger dogs that may be the case, our Labrador was fine however our chihuahua could get out under the gate and one side of the garden had no fence or wire. This was a bit disappointing as the secure garden was one of the main reasons we booked here. The main bedroom is amazing, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. A good night sleep was what was needed after a day at wells beach. A shower attachment would be amazing as well as the waterfall shower it was hard to shower without soaking your hair at the same time. Walks down the tracks in the evening was lovely especially when we caught glimpses of the sunset. A lovely stay at the cottage and would definitely return and recommend.

Miss Nicola G,

Idyllic setting and cottage. Holkham offers everything. Wells as a town is lovely. The walks and wildlife are amazing. Loved our stay and cannot wait to return. The car parking pass and gift bag is a lovely gesture and secured us staying in Holkham and Wells the whole week.

Mrs G,

We loved our trip as a family of four (2 boys under age 9) to Cuckoo Lodge. Location was remote and peaceful but well placed to get around exploring North Norfolk. Thoughtfully equipped with everything you need, the lodge was a cosy home from home. We enjoyed spotting wildlife in the garden and fields around. We didn’t want to leave and would love to come back!!

Mrs D,

The cottage was so beautiful. Set in a lovely peaceful location only a short walk into Wells. It was well equipped for our week long stay and was well situated for exploring from. We are already looking forward to planning our next trip.

Mrs K,

Brilliant location for days out to highlights across North Norfolk. Lovely cottage and gardens, with location great for walks or to relax. Just a few more glasses for drinks please!

Dr B,

This is a lovely property to stay in, fantastic location very quiet and peaceful, good walks with my dog, great enclosed garden. Will come again. Also very well equipped.

Ms H,
