With over 600 cottages for rental in Norfolk, this website is the best place to find a holiday home in East Anglia.
From beautiful houses near Norfolk's seaside towns like Cromer and Hunstanton and Wells-Next-the-Sea to holiday cottages in Norfolk's tranquil rural villages on the Norfolk broads, we have a great selection of homes to rent out. On this site you can browse cottages near the Norfolk coast or even cottages with sea views and access to their own beach hut!
Many of the cottages on this website are available to hire throughout the year whilst others are second homes rented just a few months each year. Spending your summer holiday in either will give you an insight into the Norfolk’s unspoilt countryside and coastline and the lifestyle of one of Britain’s most revered counties.
When planning a self-catered holiday in Norfolk, it’s important to make sure the house you hire is equipped for your visit. Those holidaying with a large family may want to look for somewhere with a large garden, sports equipment or crab lines. If you’re planning on bringing a pet, it’s essential to view the list of dog friendly holiday cottages before going any further with your plans.
School holidays are always the busiest time of year for us. We know that for many people renting a cottage in Norfolk over Christmas is top priority and we understand that with holiday homes booking up so fast, an easy way of finding a cottage with late availability can be really essential. To make it as easy as possible for you to choose from our range of accommodation, we’ve built an advanced search form.
What our owners are saying:
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.
We’ve written a lot about locations for booking cottages in Norfolk, but what about the homes themselves? A huge kitchen? A safe enclosed garden for the kids? The holiday homes we list on this website span the entire spectrum of accommodation in Norfolk. From romantic cottages for couples to huge barn conversions for New Year’s Eve parties, using the search form above is the best way to find somewhere to stay that’s right for you. If you have a specific idea of what you’re looking for, like a cottage with a hot tub, be sure to use the filters on our search pages. If an internet connection is essential, be sure to look at cottages with WiFi internet.
Whether you’re looking for a family friendly holiday cottage or to rent a home suitable for a large group of people, you’re in the right place.
