Kelling is a small village in a great location set along the coast road that skirts the top of the county and lies between Sheringham and Salthouse. Its reputation as a smuggling haven is no longer but the area has been one of military and historical importance in the past. The village reading rooms have now been turned into a small book shop, art gallery and tea room and the area, surrounded as it is by both Kelling Heath and Muckleburgh Hill, within the Norfolk Coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is great for walkers, birdwatchers and with the lack of light pollution, star gazers too!  The Norfolk Wildlife Trusts' visitor centre at Cley-next-the-Sea is just a short drive along the coast and the marshes along this stretch of the coast attract year round attention for its flora, fauna and wildlife.  To the east the charming Victorian seaside town of Cromer with its famous Pier is a lively spot to enjoy a day out and the cliff top walks, golf course and climb up the church tower will keep everyone active! With the attractive Georgian town of Holt close by, the historic houses of Felbrigg and Blickling just a short drive away and the local Coasthopper Bus Service that will take you right along the coast to Hunstanton in the west, you are ensured of a very enjoyable stay in this part of Norfolk.


This is a wonderful cottage for exploring the North Norfolk coast. We did not have a car and relied solely on buses and taxis, and we found getting around worked perfectly well. The cottage itself is excellent and kitchen very well equipped. The herb garden was a lovely touch and we made good use of it! We had a delightful stay and would stay again. The owner was also extremely helpful when there was a mixup with us getting instructions to enter the property.

Dr Helen V,

Have stayed in many (more expensive!) self catering accommodations and left disappointed, but Owlwood Cottage was exceptional, felt homely as soon as you entered, well furnished and with a great garden not overlooked by neighbours. Would recommend and will definitely return!

Mr Adrian B,
