  • "Enjoyed our week in this very comfortable homely cottage very much."

    Very well equipped and close to the lovely village stores and cafe also the pub and marshes. Could do with a lid on the kitchen bin and a potato masher perhaps.

    Thank you so much for your helpful feedback and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. I apologise for the kitchen bin lid which had been previously damaged and was being repaired. Property Owner

  • "An Excellent Two Week Stay Cottage is an interesting mix of old and new."

    Very well equipped kitchen, generous supply of basics on arrival. Comfortable bed with second week's linen & towels kindly supplied. The Snug was great for quiet reading. We enjoyed the outside space and barbecue. Well situated for walks from the door as well as nearby access to the Coastal path. Good centre for touring North Norfolk. Grateful to have off road parking but take care pulling out as road narrow (20 MPH limit) and on a bend. Helpful owner, easy to contact if needed. Thank you.

    I am delighted you enjoyed your two week stay at Primrose Cottage. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was clean, cosy, warm and well equiped."

    The beds were comfortable with white quilts and pillows. Bedroom wardrobes had plenty of hangers, there was sufficient drawer space. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, cutlery and crockery; the owner, James, had kindly left us some milk, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Very comfortable and nicely equipped. The owner was very helpful by letting us arrive earlier than the stated time and with a query while we were there. We always use Sykes Cottages and have not been disappointed yet.

  • "Good location - a convenient distance from most places of interest in North Norfolk."

    Owner lived next door and was very helpful. Sykes should include the property number on the listing as Primrose Cottage does not show up on Google maps - however the property manager did give us directions.

  • "The cottage was beautiful, well maintained and very well equipped with everything we needed (apart, perhaps, for a drying rack for clothes in wet weather."

    That is our only, tiny criticism and I'm certain that if we'd asked for one the owner would have produced one) The owner was friendly, helpful and answered any queries straight away. The saltmarshes and other loveky walks are right on the doorstep. I would thoroughly recommend Primrose Cottage to anyone.

  • "Really nice cottage!"

    We had a super stay and James was very helpful throughout our stay. Just one or two things really .. Garden furniture needs bit of attention, cast iron table and chairs need bit of painting and pigeon pooh removing and some new cushions for white chairs. Plug socket under window in master bedroom doesn’t work so impossible to dry hair and look in any mirror! Interesting results! Lots of empty cupboards for food etc so bit of rearranging might get dishwasher in!

  • "Had a very enjoyable stay in this well equipped, clean and welcoming cottage."

    The storage heaters made the cottage lovely and warm and cosy, did not need to light woodburner, also plenty of hot water. A shame the weather did not allow us to take advantage of the very pleasant garden area, definitely stay here again if in area and will recommend.

    The milk, biscuits and beverages were very welcome. The garden is great for sitting out; we were fortunate with the weather. The location is ideal for our favourite part of Norfolk.

  • "A lovely cottage - really good position with easy walking to the coast path."

    Road outside very busy at times but we mainly walked rather than getting in the car so it wasn't an issue. Cottage comfy and well stocked despite changes due to Covid.

The kitchen is well equipped and there is a separate storage pantry off the hall, a spacious separate dining room leads from the kitchen with plenty of space to enjoy family meals and plan your holiday adventures.

There are three bedrooms offering a choice of a king-size bed, single bed or a twin-bedded room (which can be zipped and linked to create another kingsize bed), these together with the benefit of two bathrooms provides flexible accommodation to suit the needs of a modern family, a first-floor ‘snug’ also offers opportunity to enjoy some ‘me time’ reading or browsing the internet with a well-earned mug of tea.

About the location


Wells-next-the-Sea 4 miles; Blakeney 4 miles: Sheringham 12.8 miles

Nestled on the picturesque north Norfolk coast is the small village of Stiffkey, situated to the east of Wells-next-the-sea. The village rests within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and plays host to one of the country’s richest saltmarshes for wildlife, with its mud creeks, and acres of sand which are flooded daily by the tide. The National Trust owns both Stiffkey saltmarshes and Blakeney National Nature Reserve which combine to create a huge expanse of pristine saltmarsh and big skies, and is an important conservation area for breeding birds. If you want to get closer to the local wildlife head to Blakeney or Morston Quay for boat trips to view common and grey seals. Within the village, you will find a pub and a quaint store with a café, as well as the Norfolk Coast Path skirting the saltmarsh and extending for some 45 miles, allowing you to choose to head either east towards Blakeney, or west to Wells-Next-The-Sea. The area is a great all-year venue for bird-watchers and walkers alike. Travel to the nearby seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea, home to a bustling harbour, a sandy beach and welcoming taverns, promising memorable days out for the whole family. The award-winning beach of Holkham and Cley, home to the oldest Wildlife Trust nature reserve are well worth a visit, as are the market town of Holt and village of Burnham Market. There are many other attractions within the surrounding area to keep you busy including the historic Holkham Hall, Walsingham a place of pilgrimage since the 11th Century, Houghton Hall for regular art and sculpture exhibitions, plus Blickling Hall, North Norfolk Steam Railway and the royal household of Sandringham all within easy reach. With such a vast array of enjoyable walks, coastal scenery and places to visit on its doorstep, Stiffkey makes a wonderful base to enjoy a family holiday as well as being attractive to birdwatchers, cyclists and walkers all year round.
