  • "Very quaint cottage in a friendly, welcoming village setting that’s accessible to many local attractions and far afield ones too."

    The cottage itself is relatively new, as immaculate inside with all the essentials to make your stay comfortable. The welcome basket of tea, coffee, sugar and milk was a nice touch in view there is no shop within the village and you’re unable to access the property until 4pm. At the front there is just about enough room for a car, although not ideal for a large vehicle. Back courtyard is small and paved but ideal for a small dog and/or toddlers (no BBQ facilities). Only criticism is that the extractor fan over the cooker makes a racket if the wind is up and in the dead of the night it becomes even more apparent. The local pub, The Greyhound serves excellent pub gastro food and the staff are exceedingly friendly, as are the locals. We ate there twice over the New Year and walked away thoroughly stuffed from just eating mains - No desserts, which is unheard of for our family

  • "Just returned home from a lovely week staying in Wallflower cottage."

    Tea, coffee sugar, milk and biscuits had been left for our arrival. Local pub, The greyhound is two minute walk, freindly staff and lovely food. We visited Sea-Palling which had a lovely beach. We walked from Sea Palling to Wexham, the sea lions were close to shore in Wexham. We took a boat ride around the Broads using Broad Tours. We had a lovely walk from Horsey Windpump to Horsey Gap and again the Sea Lions were so close. I would highly recommend the cottage as its spotless and so close to loads of things to do.

About the location


Wroxham 8 miles; Norwich 15 miles; Great Yarmouth 17 miles.

The market town of Stalham, with its high street with a good range of shops and eateries, is a typical North Norfolk town. There is a small market which comes to the town on Tuesdays and a farmers’ market on every other Saturday, as well as regular sales in the town hall. Stalham is one of the major starting points of Norfolk Broads boating holidays and a museum to give you an insight in to the Broadland environment is a must. Just a few miles inland from fantastic beaches, this is a perfect base for exploring the Norfolk Broads and coastline.
