  • "We had a lovely weekend at Sunnyside cottage, it was perfectly located for us for visiting family in Norfolk and had very thing we needed."

    It’s wonderfully spacious but nice and cosy too. We will definitely be booking again for another visit.

  • "A lovely property, very warm and cosy, comfortable and well equipped."

    Very convenient location for exploring North Norfolk and coast. Even went to Sandringham to see “Illuminate” which was a spectacular light show in the park and a great way to start Christmas celebrations. The photographs do not do the cottage justice as it’s even better than we expected. Location is quiet and rural with lovely local walks. We had a glorious sunny week so the property lived up to its name with beautiful sunrises and sunsets across the big skies. Added plus we could charge our hybrid electric car easily. Had a Morrison’s delivery for basics on arrival plus used all the wonderful farm shops for vegetables, meat and fish. We would certainly stay here again on our next winter bird watching trip.

  • "A great stay with everything that we needed."

    Close enough to my sister in laws that we could visit daily if needed but also great for getting to the beach (Hunstanton, shops Kings Lynn) would definitely book again and may well in the future. Owner was very friendly and helpful.

    It needs to be bigger and more obvious as you travel along the track

  • "The cottage had everything you could need for a comfortable stay and was very spacious."

    We have stayed in many self catering cottages in recent years and this is by far the best for the reasons mentioned.

  • "The house was clean and tidy and well located."

    Owner was friendly and had helpfully installed an outside electric socket, so I could connect and slow charge my electric car. Bonus was the wind turbine on site that produced zero carbon power! The beds were comfortable but the double bed in the master was a bit squeaky. The kitchen was well equipped but the pot and pans were in need of updating due to wear and tear. Some more non-metal utensils would be useful to avoid scratching.

    Wendy and Tony are lovely host. Cottage is extremely well equipped. Internet intermittent. Very quiet and peaceful. Good for touring the local area (close to Sandringham, etc).

  • "The pictures of the cottage really do not do it justice."

    The kitchen was brilliantly equipped and the lounge area was really very cosy. A gorgeous bathroom and the bedrooms are a great size and with all you need for your stay. The underfloor heating was lovely. After staying here I want this in my own home! No issues with WiFi as per other reviews. Just a really nice visit.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped."

    The owners sorted out a couple of minor issues (eg replacing light bulb) very promptly but were unable to get the wifi working. This was not working the entire time we were there which was inconvenient for us but might be a major headache for another guest. It was nice to have a small enclosed garden which was sunny. This is right next to the owners' garden so you get to meet their dogs (through the fence). There is lots to do in the local area. We also found a couple of good pubs in a nearby village.

  • "The cottage was really well kept, and finished to a good standard."

    The grounds are really nice and the surrounding countryside is beautiful! My only negative was the lack of WiFi, which was advertised but was down during the whole week, in keeping with the comments from other people who have stayed there.

    It is a great location to visit lots of places in Norfolk. Sandringham was only 10 minutes away, and that’s a lovely day out. Would go back again to stay at the cottage as we were only there for 3 days

  • "The owners are very welcoming and helpful."

    The cottage is very spacious and well equipped, and in a peaceful location, ideally situated near to Kings Lynn and all amenities. There are many historical places of interest to visit, including the National Trust and Sandringham. It is within easy reach of the North Norfolk coast and there are two heritage railways just about an hour away if you fancy a steam train ride. (NB. Stated location of the holiday cottage is 2 miles along Setch Road from the A10. In reality the cottage is just 1 mile, so you could easily miss the turning into the drive).

  • "The cottage was well located for visiting the local area."

    The property was exceptionally clean with an excellent standard of decoration and facilities and plenty of storage space. The bathroom was well sized. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with a good outside area for sitting out. The owners were friendly and offered a very warm welcome on arrival. Parking was ideal at the front of the property. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a property in the area.

  • "Booking online was so quick and easy with no hidden extra costs."

    The cottage was warm and cosy, well equipped and comfortable. It is ideally situated for visiting this area. The owners are lovely, friendly but unobtrusive. We especially loved visiting RSPB Titchwell Marsh where we watched the Marsh Harriers displaying and courting, as well as many other beautiful birds. As no boat trips run in January we drove an hour and a half to Horsey beach to see the thousands of grey seals up close, an unforgettable experience. And we thoroughly enjoyed visiting Langham Glass in Fakenham to watch the artisans at work, keeping old skills alive and producing incredible objects. Altogether a soothing and relaxing time.

About the location


Sandringham 9 miles; Snettisham 13.4 miles; Hunstanton 17 miles.

King's Lynn is a historic, medieval port dating back to the 12th century, situated on the River Great Ouse. A treasure trove for history lovers, the town boasts grand merchant houses, art galleries and museums, and the Custom House, built by Henry Bell in 1683, which is a Grade I listed building. The town retains its original winding streets and alleys, and boasts good shopping facilities, with a combination of national retailers and specialist shops, along with a selection of pubs and restaurants. Much of the surrounding Norfolk countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the West Norfolk coastline within easy driving distance. Hunstanton, in particular, is renowned for its sunsets and lovely beaches. Boat trips are available from several points along the coast, while the Norfolk Coast Cycleway runs from King's Lynn to Cromer. The impressive Visitor Centre at The Queen's fabulous country retreat, Sandringham, is also a short drive away and well worth a visit.
