Classic Places to Rent a Cottage in Norfolk
There’s no denying that Norfolk’s biggest attraction is the stunning coastline that separates Lord Nelson’s county from the bracing North Sea. It’s no surprise then to find some of the most established tourists spots straddling the tops of Cromer’s cliffs, tucked behind the dunes at Hunstanton or amongst the bustling of eager sailors in Burnham Overy-Staithe. Locals and second home owners along the coastline and near the beaches have taken the opportunity to share the Norfolk experience more than anywhere else in East Anglia. With an abundance holiday homes in Sheringham and neighbouring Cromer, the appeal of these classic seaside towns has led to the creation of some stunning holiday homes in nearby West Runton and inland to Felbrigg. Similarly in addition to finding a cottage in Wells-Next-the-Sea, people are now booking accommodation for their vacation in villages like Holkham and Binham just a mile or two down the road.
Naturally, everyone’s idea of a “classic” Norfolk holiday is different. While many see tourists are seeking the traditional bucket-and-spade days out offered by Hunstanton & Cromer, there’s another kind of holidaymaker setting up camp in Norfolk... Unperturbed by the “personality” of British weather, the annual migration of bird watchers have made villages like Cley and Salthouse firm favourites. For a twitcher there’s nothing better than renting a traditional flint cottage in Blakeney (or Cley) and exploring the Norfolk coast path for the best views of birdlife in the county.
Walking isn’t the only way to navigate your way between Norfolk’s beaches and seaside spots, a dedicated bus service (the “Coast Hopper”) connects the entire coastline between King’s Lynn and Cromer. Now holidaymakers renting a cottage in less lively villages like Blakeney or Heacham can catch the bus to Wells-Next-the-Sea or Sheringham for a low fuss day trip. If you’re planning to bring your car to Norfolk, remember that in some places parking can be difficult, almost all of the cottages on this website have their own dedicated parking but we strongly suggest checking with the cottage owner first.
