Sheringham is a thriving seaside resort on the popular north Norfolk coast that has something to offer all year round. Tennis, golf, sea fishing, the beach, its own Little Theatre and the National Trust's Sheringham Park are just some of the local attractions. Discover the coastal footpath, which is part of the National Coast Path and takes you to Cromer in the east and Salthouse and beyond in the west. Visit the sandy beaches of Cromer, with its famous pier and shows, or travel a little south to the beaches at West Runton, East Runton, Overstrand or Mundesley, for miles of sand and not many people! The famous Poppy Line Steam Railway runs from the town centre along the coast to the elegant Georgian town of Holt, with its numerous boutiques, art galleries, antique shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, for a great day out and there is a main line train that can take you to Norwich for a day of cultural sightseeing, shopping and a super restaurant selection. Ornithologists can enjoy a trip to the marshes and Norfolk Wildlife Trust centre at Cley-next-the-Sea and if you want to visit the largest common and grey seal colony in this part of the world, take a trip from either Blakeney or Morston quays. There are some delightful historic houses in the area at Felbrigg and Blickling, run by the National Trust and with so much to do in the area one visit is probably not going to be enough.

We were absolutely delighted with our stay at Scallop Cottage. We have stayed in many properties over the years and we were really happy with the location being close to the town and the sea. The thing that impressed us the most was the well equipped kitchen including condiments which most places don’t do and it is so helpful not to have to go and buy everything. The cottage was also very warm, cosy and had a very many nice touches such as books and games. We couldn’t fault it. Mrs Jennifer Mercer - 3rd January 2018
Loved the cottage, I would like to live there!!Mrs C Yates - 9th November 2017
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely little cottage and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. Mrs Ruth McIntosh - 24th October 2017
Very well appointed and equipped, especially the kitchen, with careful thought to utensils etc needed. We found the relevant local literature most helpful and enjoyed 2 very pleasant walks as a result of that. Would definitely recommend the cottage.Mrs Glynn Mulvein - 7th September 2017

Thank you for making us feel so comfortable in your lovely house. The Gallagher Party - 11th August 2017
A lovely home with all needs catered for. Highly recommend the ice cream at Ellies and fish & chips from the Sheringham Trawler. If you have children of any age then a trip to BeWilderwood is an absolute must. Ben & Cheryl - 7th August 2017
