The Dutch House is a fabulous Grade II listed detached cottage in the heart of Snettisham village. Great attention has been paid to getting this cottage just right, so that guests can enjoy a relaxing, comfortable and peaceful break away from the routine of their daily lives. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the open plan living / dining space boasts bold yet classic decoration; snuggle up in front of the woodburner after long blustery beach walks in the cooler months. Bedroom one with super king size bed (which can be separated into twin beds) is well lit and spacious and the second bedroom boasts luxurious, boudoir styling with vintage bed frames. Outside is a suntrap courtyard with seating where you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine or two at the end of a busy day. Surrounded by lovely beaches and seaside towns, stately homes at Sandringham, Houghton and Holkham and, if birdwatching is on your agenda, there is no better place to be, with nature reserves at Snettisham, Titchwell, Blakeney and Cley. This property also welcomes two well behaved dogs so your furry friends can enjoy what’s on offer too. Shop/Pub: within walking distance.

Snettisham is a village of character and has plenty to offer both families and friends holidaying in this delightful corner of Norfolk. Visit the local pubs in the village, the award-winning Rose & Crown serves great food and another popular eatery is The Old Bank; named in The Good Food Guide 2018 as Best Local Restaurant and in 2019 it was listed in the Michelin Guide so best to book ahead! If sailing is your passion, then Snettisham has a very active sailing club. The wide-open spaces that the coastline enjoys are the setting for some of the most spectacular sunsets and aside from Snettisham itself, the resorts of Heacham, Hunstanton and Brancaster are all within easy reach. Take a stroll along the sea front at Hunstanton to the pretty village of Old Hunstanton with soft sandy dunes to explore against a backdrop of softly decorated beach huts; and pop into The Mariner to refuel which has the most spectacular views of the sea from the garden. Ornithologists will enjoy the proximity to the RSPB Reserves of both Snettisham and Titchwell. For the history buffs, the elegant houses of Holkham Hall, Sandringham and Houghton Hall are well worth a visit. There is also a deer park and safari to discover at Snettisham Farm and the delights of Norfolk Lavender can be enjoyed at Heacham.


Lovely period property in the centre of Snettisham. Lots of walks from the door and perfectly placed for access to the beach, nature reserves, Sandringham and Hunstanton, either by car or bus. Whilst the parking was on-street, we did not have any problems during our stay. Well equipped and comfortable.

Mrs D,

Fabulous location, excellent equipment and comfortable bed. As a frequent traveller, we appreciated the cleanness of the property, no dust! We had a wonderful weekend, next time will arrange to try the restaurant next door!

Ms K,

The property was ideal for our family, with teenage daughters. The location is perfect with two pubs within 2 minutes walk and a great restaurant even closer.

Mr P,

Great location, great cottage. An excellent restaurant next door but make sure you book in advance.

Dr B,

A beautiful spotlessly clean property. As it hasn’t been rented out for very long yet, all the kitchen equipment was brand new and the bedding and towels great quality, soft and smooth. Everything very good quality and well equipped throughout. The house has some lovely period features and a very welcoming feel, and we also appreciated the goody bag of local produce left as a welcome gift. WiFi worked throughout the property but was quite slow, especially early evening. Very comfortable beds, a good mix of new items and period furniture etc. Dog friendly (wooden and tiled floors downstairs) with a small enclosed courtyard area. No green spaces to walk dogs directly from the property but quiet roads/verges allowed an easy loop to stretch their legs. A good location for pubs/restaurants within 2 minute walk. The Rose and Crown in particular was very dog friendly and had great food. You are bang in the middle of the village so 2 min walk to a co-op and pharmacy, with friendly neighbours around. There is no double glazing and as the house is between 2 streets there is traffic noise, especially in the morning, but fairly quiet overnight. The curtains in the main bedroom let in a lot of light so take an eye mask if the light bothers you. Plenty of hot water for the bath / shower. Be aware that the shower head is low (around 5’ 6” high) and the shower is above the bath, which won’t suit everyone but we found it fine, and nicely powerful. Also be aware of the steep and winding staircase which those with limited mobility or small children will struggle with. Overall a lovely property and I would definitely stay again if I were to visit the area again.

Mrs D,
