  • "Lovely stay with a couple of friends for a well needed chilled out week."

    My two mini dachshunds enjoyed their stay.. plenty of walks to be had. Very surprised of the amount of people who fail to clean up after the dogs while walking into town. No reflection on this property though.

    Thanks so much for your comments and the super scores including cleanliness and comfort. We're thrilled you had a lovely chilled week at our period property with friends and your dachshunds. Property Owner

  • "Great cottage, spacious, light and airy, lovely and warm, loads of hot water and comfortable beds!"

    5 minutes walk to local convenience store, and less than 10 minutes walk to town and the sea. Well equipped, though user manuals would have been handy for oven, hob etc. Had to ask the owner but she was extremely patient and helpful, so no problem. Not really complaints, but just a couple “ heads up”. Shower itself is great, but the room is very small and the basin minuscule, not much room to manoeuvre. And the security box for the key is only about 18 inches from the ground, not great for arthritic knees and bifocals in the rain! Ok if you’re young and fit though.

    Thank you for your comments and that even in a period property you found it spacious and that you found the shower good as the whole bathroom was newly fitted this year. Property Owner

  • "Some features are dated, could do with a repaint and revamp especially outside compared to other cottages in the area for similar prices."

    Thanks for your comments. We do value all opinions but would also like to reassure guests that our period property was renovated in 2016. We have kept some original features in keeping with the character of the property but the renovation included flooring and a new kitchen with modern appliances such as an integrated fridge and is double glazed. The property has wifi, a dishwasher and washing machine and a new boiler was installed two years ago. The bathroom is new this year, and the upstairs original floorboards were revarnished this summer. We will also be repainting the exterior fence which is currently weather dependant but will be done in time for the start of the season next year. Property Owner

  • "Lovely quiet and well presented cottage."

    Short walk to beach, town and commons. Unsure how previous reviewer enjoyed parking directly outside front door as dirt track road stops about 20m from front door. Surprisingly spacious and well equipped apart from a frying pan and sharp knives. Not that important, but first time in many years that no welcome pack was provided and no condiments except bottle of vinegar . But was teabags and milk. Also a hard floor vacuum cleaner would have been handy rather than relying on brush and dust pan and toilet cleaner would have been appreciated. Wonderful shower and all necessary kitchen appliances. Certainly a 9 out of 10 and would return.

    Many thanks for your feedback. Regrettably in times of covid, we were supplying only essential welcome items. We're thrilled you enjoyed the bathroom and kitchen facilities. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is lovely and is well suited to couples with dogs or adults without young children."

    Unfortunately we had some issues with our stay, however they were rectified very quickly and with no hassle at all. It is just practical things like washing your hands in the upstairs bathroom, the water goes everywhere because the sink is too small. There is no where to recycle your rubbish which is a real shame. However the location of the cottage is excellent. We had no trouble parking in front of the cottage either. It is not ideal though with small children as the stairs are not covered with carpet, just a strip of it. At the bottom of the stairs is a tile floor. The smallest bedroom has wooden beds with hard edges that people with little ones would need to consider as well.

  • "My wife and 8 year old daughter enjoyed a week in Beck View at the end of August."

    The cottage is light and airy and well positioned on the edge of Beeston Common only 5 minutes walk from the sea. The kitchen is nicely laid out with room for 6 around the large dning table. The kitchen units are well laid out and all appliances are there. However a couple of important points let down the overall good impression - the non-stick pots and pans were scratched and worn, the oven roasting tins had not been cleaned, and kitchen and sitting room floors were dusty andin need of brushing.

  • "We loved how spacious the cottage was and how close it was to the sea front and the town."

    The bedding smelled amazing and beds very comfortable. We had two dogs with us and we as owners loved that there was a big common land area just outside the cottage where you could take them out quickly in the morning and evening for a bathroom break and a quick run around. The cottage was lovely decorated and the garden area at front and back was good to sit in and well fenced in for privacy and great for the doggies. It was also nice to have a clothes line and a bit extra lawn to sit out on that was adjacent to the property. The kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking stuff and cultery, plates, and appliances to make cooking stressfree. We had a lovely and memorable time and didn't want to leave. The owner and cleaner of the property were very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the area. This is only a suggestion that it might be nice to offer guests a recyclable bin to help with keeping all waste not going into all the same bin.

  • "The positives were that the location of the property was excellent and it was warm and there was plenty of hot water."

    The negatives were that it was quite grubby including the cutlery, crockery and cookware. There were three cereal bowls one of which was cracked and so couldn't be used and there were no small chopping knives. There were no spare black bags and it said to put the bin out on the right day but couldn't find anything to say when the right day was and couldn't find the green recycling bin. The settees and dining chairs were uncomfortable so no where comfortable to sit in the evening. The shower room was extremely cramped.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond to our feedback form. The owner was disappointed to read your response as she is quick to respond to guest comments and has most issues rectified within a day for any reasonable request when she is advised of an issue. She could have easily dropped off some more knives had she been made aware to make your stay more comfortable. Unfortunately, the snack bowls were damaged by a previous guest, but there are more than enough bowls for guests to use during their stay. With you advising there were only 3 of them the owner is thinking that perhaps your used the snack bowls for cereal rather than the larger bowls in the cupboard. The seating is by most peoples standards very comfortable, it is unfortunate that you were unable to find anywhere to your satisfaction to settle. The shower is a standard size, for the majority of guest this is suited for their requirements. It is regrettable that you didn't advise the owner or our office during your stay as we were both on hand to assist to make your time at Beck View Cottage more enjoyable. Property Owner

  • "First impressions did not deceive."

    This cottage is ideally placed for regular forays into Sheringham, Cromer or even further afield. Up the coast to some of the villages or inland to some of the nearby towns. It is extremely well equipped leaving nothing out. It is warm and cosy and a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. Ideally placed also for early morning walks either on the common, in the nearby woods or on the beach, the dog enjoyed his stay too. Due to other celebrations this year, already booked, we cannot return later as we would usually do, but will definitely return next year if we can find available dates when we start to look. We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

  • "We arrived on the Saturday before Christmas and we walked in to find a Christmas tree and some Prosecco!"

    What a lovely thought. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and had a good sized kitchen with table and chairs to seat 6 people (always a pre-requisite for me!). It was light and airy. The main bedroom was large, very light and had great storage. The twin room had 2 beautiful beds in it which were very comfy (or so I was reliably informed by my sons). There was no real storage in the twin room though so hanging up clothes could have been an issue (the boys seemed to live out of their suitcase which suited them on this occasion). The only downside was the utensils and crockery needed re washing. I am not sure if the previous tenants had washed up properly so we had to do that again. However that did not detract from our stay. Our little dog loved it as there was a very secure garden which he liked to potter about in. Lovely practical tiled flooring downstairs which was great. The view from both bedrooms was wonderful. The back bedroom looked out over some allotments and the main bedroom looked out over a stream and some beautiful cottages. You could have been anywhere. I would definitely recommend this cottage - but not too much as we want to go back ! Great cottage in a beautiful part of the world. Thank you.

It would have been nice to have a kitchen cupboard to allow us to store our groceries as we had to put everything on the kitchen table and then move it all when wanting to use the table etc. a hair dryer would have been nice but apart from that all is good. we really enjoyed our stay and have already booked to return next year.

    Great location to walk into town or up Beeston Bump to coastal path. Although there’s a full sized dishwasher, only 4 of each crockery so ended up washing up anyway so had plates for next meal. Small sharp knife would be appreciated. Curtains in twin room no use in summer. Had to put double bed throw over rail to stop light coming in at 4am. Beds comfortable. Vacuum cleaner would be appreciated with dogs despite tiled floor. Great location for dogs onto common. Owner quick to respond to my questions by text prior to arrival. Would book again.

  • "Beck View Cottage gave us just what we needed - a restful base for a walking and cycling holiday."

    Great location. Easy, pleasant walk into Sheringham, five minute walk to access North Norfolk Coastal Path and good road access for trips further afield. Parking outside cottage no problem. No under cover access for bikes but that didn’t bother us - we parked them in the small paved terrace chained together and they were fine. It is definitely a cottage so keep expectations reasonable for outside space and storage in bedrooms. Main bedroom sizeable and would easily fit a travel cot if needed (we didn’t). Good drawer space but small wardrobe, though we managed fine for a week. Second twin bedroom no wardrobe with just hanging option on picture rail and small bedside cabinet. Third member of our party only stayed two nights so managed OK. Shower room only but that was all we needed. Lounge comfortable with TV/DVD and books and games. Kitchen/diner had all we needed (except maybe a few more tea towels). Lovely holiday.

    The approach to the cottage was very muddy (grass) and dark. It was lucky we did not slip but we did get dirty. We then had to walk round the back via more wet muddy grass to find the key. It was pitch black. Luckily I had a torch on my phone otherwise it would have been impossible to read the keycode. Security lights or something similar are needed.

The property

A beautifully-presented semi-detached cottage which is situated close to the centre of Sheringham in North Norfolk. This lovely cottage is in a tranquil spot, ideal for families or friends to get away from it all.

The cottage is presented to a high standard throughout.

Step in and enjoy the cosy sitting room after a day out exploring.

Walk through the sitting room and enter the light, airy fully-equipped kitchen with dining area and a patio door leading out to a secluded patio area with outdoor furniture.

The front gravelled garden with views overlooking the common is an ideal spot for breakfast in the morning or enjoying a good book while catching the warmth of the sun during the summer months. Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with lovely views over the common, a twin bedroom and a shower room.

The cottage has lovely views over Beeston Back Common with its network of streams running through and minutes from the wonderful beach.

The land adjacent to the cottage also has a handy washing line. The cottage is well situated for exploring both quaint Sheringham and the wide golden sands of its blue flag beach.

The heritage railway steam train runs up and down the Poppy Line, from Sheringham to the popular Georgian town of Holt; which is renowned for its selection of cafes, independent shops, antiques and the arts.

There is excellent walking and cycling on your doorstep with beautiful coastal and woodland routes to explore.

Close by are stately homes such as Blickling Hall, Felbrigg Hall and the royal residence at Sandringham.

There are also Nature Reserves which include local Beeston common, but also Blakeney and Holkham National Nature Reserves, as well as an off shore seal colony which is visited by boats run from Morston Quay. There are also local seasonal delights worth experiencing, from the Rhododendron display at Sheringham’s National Trust Park in May; the famous 1940’s weekend where the whole town steps back in time in September; Norfolk Restaurant Week with gourmet food at tempting prices in October; and finally Thursford’s Christmas Spectacular in November and December which is within easy reach by car. This really is a very nice cottage, for couples, friends or families, in a great location, whatever the time of the year.
