  • "We absolutely loved Bumblebee cottage!"

    It was cosy and really comfortable, with everything we needed provided. The location was great for us to explore all the lovely nearby beaches, we had a great week, thank you.

  • "A comfortable and well equipped cottage in a good location for visiting the North Norfolk coast."

    Unfortunately the cottage is on a very busy road with heavy traffic throughout the day and night and for us, being light sleepers, was an issue. The cottage has no outside space (which we knew before we arrived) but as the weather was so lovely didnt appreciate how much we would miss this. We had 2 very good meals in The Ostrich in the village.

  • "Bumblebee Cottage was a well furnished with quality fittings."

    Clean and fully equipped kitchen. Plenty of hot water to suit our needs. Good linens and comfortable beds. Only down side was no seating area outside. But to be fair they did not state any garden area.

    We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Bumblebee Cottage. We have tried to make it a home from home experience- thank you for your lovely comments. Property Owner

  • "Bumblebee Cottage is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully designed."

    It's wonderfully comfortable. It's peaceful, the village is quiet. It's very well equipped, with every last detail considered. Wish we could have stayed much longer. Thank you!

    This is wonderful to hear as we are new to the letting business and it’s good to know we have got it right! Nothing is perfect but we really want to make a comfortable and welcoming holiday home and are always open to suggestions of how we can make it even better. Glad to hear our guests’ stay was so positive. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bumblebee Cottage. Property Owner

The property

Burnham Market 4.5 miles.

This character, semi-detached cottage sits in the little village of South Creake, a few miles south of the popular town of Burnham Market.

Presented to a wonderful standard over two floors, Bumblebee Cottage provides a superb escape for a family of five looking to spend some time in North Norfolk.

Internally, the property features a well-appointed kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, so you’ll have everything on hand to prepare hearty meals, which can be enjoyed at the dining table.

Move to the lounge, where you can perch yourself on the sofa and armchair and keep warm beside the woodburning stove.

When the night grows darker, head upstairs and make yourself comfortable in bedrooms, housing a double with en-suite shower, a twin and a single, all neutrally presented.

Completing the interior of this traditional abode is the family bathroom, featuring a roll-top bath, hand-held shower, basin, and WC.

Head out the door and explore this delightful village, offering a pub, The Ostrich Inn, where you can enjoy a dinner out, along with a large green with duck pond running through the centre.

Hop in the car and head to Burnham Market, home to a premier high street with a choice of independent shops, bistros, and restaurants, or continue a few miles to reach the sands of Holkham Beach, a sandy expanse with large dunes and safe swimming conditions.

Those bird watching enthusiasts will be awe with several birdwatching areas with diverse habitats that includes reedbeds, saltmarshes and freshwater lagoons, plus you can even take a boat trip if you’re seeking a little more adventure and spot the seal colony at Blakeney Point.

Choose Bumblebee Cottage for a magnificent and varied holiday to Norfolk.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
