The Sail Loft. It was warm, cosey, had everything we needed. A fabulous welcome package on arrival. The owner's welcomed us, very friendly and approachable. A very delightful experience one we wish to repeat.

Mrs G,

Sweet little property for 2 people with a couple of dogs. Dog proof garden and easy access to places to walk the dogs. Near enough to the village centre for shops and restaurants. The Old Bank is an amazing restaurant for a special occasion.

Mrs S,

My husband & I had a lovely stay at the sail loft, they had thought of everything from treats for the dogs to homemade jam, nice cheese & fresh bread..really made you feel at home. We Would definitely stay here again.. we took the dogs to wells-next-the-sea..the dogs loved it..

Mrs C,

Lovely property finished to a high standard.Great location and lovely garden that would be great for outdoor dining in warmer weather.The dogs were really well catered for. High quality.

Mr C,

A warm welcome from the lovely owners awaits when you stay at The Sail Loft. A lovely property with it's own garden and extremely comfortable bed. It's perfectly positioned to explore the delights Norfolk has to offer, we would definitely recommend a stay here.

Mr H,

Friendly owners, immaculate, well equipped …home from home, dog friendly & the welcome pack was a lovely touch.

Mrs A,

The Sail Loft is so comfortable and cozy and ideally placed for exploring North Norfolk coast.

Miss D,

The Sail Loft was spotlessly clean when we arrived, the whole place has been well thought out and the quality of everything in the cottage is very high. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and, again, of a very high quality. It is probably the best equipped holiday cottage we’ve stayed in.

Mrs B,

Lovely property, very cosy, warm and comfortable. It’s got everything you need and is well situated for exploring Norfolk’s west and north coasts.

Mr D,
