    “Anyone with mobility issues would find the steep staircase difficult.”

    The second bedroom with double bed is very cramped and has no storage space. We, although elderly, are active and managed the stairs and being just a couple were fine.

The property

Ideally situated in the darling village of Snettisham, is this characterful dwelling, Curlew Cottage.

Surrounded by breath-taking countryside with the Norfolk Coast right on the doorstep, Curlew Cottage is the perfect retreat for one or two couples.

Enter into the spacious living/dining room and discover a sumptuous grey sofa and inviting love seat, where you can curl up with an exciting novel or chat amongst friends whilst the sleek flat-screen TV plays in the background.

Cross on over to the attractive dining table to begin to map out all of your upcoming adventures in this splendid part of the country, before tucking into a delicious feast that has been lovingly prepared in the cheerful yellow kitchen.

Continuing through the property, a pretty yet contemporary shower room lays peacefully on the ground floor, adorned with quirky nautical décor and a large walk-in shower, together creating a bright and airy space to prepare for the day ahead.

Take the steep and winding staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by two restful bedrooms, each appointed with traditional oak furnishings and exuding charm through many original features.

Escape the excitement with a crisp glass of wine out in the rear garden, as you bask in the sunshine at the wonderful outdoor seating area and admire the well-manicured lawns.

Make the most of your time in Norfolk with a peaceful woodland stroll through Snettisham Woods, or an afternoon spent wandering the shores of Heacham South Beach with a tasty portion of fish and chips.

Just a short stroll away, the 100-acre fields of Norfolk Lavender are a must-see, with beautiful gardens and an oil distillery waiting to be explored.

Stop by the 19th-century Bircham Windmill and grab a bite to eat at the bakery or tearoom, or visit Sandringham for a tour of the queens very own holiday home, Sandringham Estate, and an hour or two at Sandringham Museum and Stables Tearoom.

Over in Castle Rising, 11th-century remains of a grand medieval castle await you, whilst the town of King's Lynn nestled on the banks of the River Great Ouse, hosts attractions such as Greyfriars Tower, the Lynn Museum and Red Mount Chapel.

Step back in time at the Stories of Lynn, or see George Vancouver Statue before grabbing dinner and drinks in the heart of the town.

See the vibrant promenade in Hunstanton and the magnificent Hunstanton Cliffs, before continuing along the coast for an awe-inspiring hike boasting unrivalled seascapes.

Discover the very best of Norfolk with a stay at Curlew Cottage.

About the location


Heacham 3 miles; Royal Sandringham 4 miles; Hunstanton 5 miles.

Snettisham is a traditional Norfolk village, with many of its houses built from the local iron-rich carr stone, which has an attractive golden-brown colouring. Due to this, the buildings are known locally as “gingerbread houses”. Village amenities include general stores, a Post Office, 2 inns, a bistro and a regular bus service to the bustling, family-friendly seaside resort of Hunstanton and historic King’s Lynn. The church of St Mary sits alone on top of the hill and is certainly worthy of a look inside at the exquisitely decorated tracery flowers on the west window. There is an RSPB bird sanctuary close to the beach, which is three miles away, and the ancient Peddars Way public footpath runs near to the village. Park Farm is on the edge of the village, and is a working farm with year-round activities for all the family, including a 45-minute “deer safari” and the chance to feed some of the animals. The Royal Estate of Sandringham, whose impressive house, gardens and church are open to the public, is nearby, as are the plant farm, tea rooms and gift shop at Norfolk Lavender, England's premier lavender farm.
