  • "Beautiful, clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage with the added bonus of a large, enclosed garden - ideal for children and dogs."

    The "welcome pack" (cereals, tea, coffee and chocolate cake) was a nice touch and much appreciated. A hidden gem close to the town and the beach which we will definitely be returning to!!

    Thank you very much for giving us a 100% score ! Much appreciated Property Owner

  • "We have just spent a fabulous week in this beautiful cottage."

    Comfortable, roomy, well equip and a real lovely base for our holiday. Lovely garden ideal for our dogs and my 2 year old Granddaughter to play in safely. An added and most welcome bonus was a lovely cake, tea, coffee and milk on our arrival. I would highly recommend Flint Cottage and we hope to return. Thank you from very happy visitors

  • "Lovely cottage, TV in lounge could do with updating very small screen especially for older people whose eyesight is not as good as if was."

    Also provision of a USB plug for charging phones etc would be helpful. We had a very enjoyable week and really appreciated being able to bring all four dogs.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments, we always encourage and act on guest feedback where practicable. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and we know from personal experience how difficult it is to find a cottage that will accept 4 dogs ! However for the benefit of future guests we must clarify that Flint Cottage has a 32” LED Smart HD TV with DVD in the lounge, which is 12 months old; in addition there is a larger smart TV situated in an upstairs bedroom.

  • "The cottage was exceptionally clean."

    The communication with the owners was also excellent. They were aware that we were arriving following our wedding and had made the cottage even more homely.

  • "The cottage was not suitable for OAP ..."

    The cottage was not suitable for OAP The stairs were steep and dark furniture was to low for us Parking space where you could manage to find a space in surrounding streets We arrived on the Saturday and left Tuesday very disappointing

    Thank you very much for your prompt reply and feedback. We appreciate your comments and will speak to Sykes about including a caution for elderly guests. However both we and Sykes do our best to provide accurate descriptions of our cottages, this includes us asking guests at the time of booking if they need any further information, this could be about the cottage facilities or parking. Both the sofas and beds are of standard height, however if you found the double bed to be too low for you, the twin beds were available for use and they are slightly higher. We also have a detailed "access statement" on our own website (details on our first email to you) which gives the exact measurements of the cottage including the stairs. We disagree that they are unduly steep (they have standard 13 steps of normal tread height) or indeed dark, there is full lighting in the hallway and on the landing. We totally understand that this type of period cottage (plus without its own parking) may not entirely meet your needs, but feel that you did not make sufficient inquiries as to suitability at the time of booking. Finally it is disappointing that you didn't let us know you were leaving after only 3 nights stay, as we could have arranged for our housekeeper to attend early and would have found your clothing items sooner. We are very sorry that you were unable to enjoy your stay in Flint Cottage and Sheringham but feel that neither we nor Sykes could not have done anything different to avoid your dissatisfaction. Thank you once again for taking the time to give us your feedback. Property Owner

    We always use Sykes cottages as they are always so good, but this one exceeded our expectations. The size, facilities, comfort - everything about the place was excellent.

  • "Flint cottage is a lovely place to stay."

    It is right by the shops and beach and some lovely places to eat. The cottage itself is very comfortable and equipped with everything you could need. The garden is a great size and perfect if you have dogs. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "A lovely cottage with everything we required for our stay."

    Very convenient for the shops and seafront. The cottage was well equipped and clean with some extras like breakfast cereals and toiletries. We were lucky with being able to park outside the cottage 5 nights out of 7 but I imagine it could be a problem at busier times, Overall a lovely holiday.

  • "Flint Cottage is beautifully decorated, with some lovely features, such as the fireplaces."

    The kitchen and upstairs bathroom are done to a very high standard. Very clean throughout. The back garden is a lovely space. Location wise it’s very close to the amenities, and only 5 minute walk to the beach, but still a very quiet road. There is some lovely local artwork around the property too. The owners were great with communication and lots of useful information was left such as WiFi and heating instructions, local attractions and places to eat. A very enjoyable stay.

Beyond here is a well-equipped kitchen which comes with all the essentials to whip up a home-cooked meal, with the added benefit of a dishwasher so you barely have to lift a finger to wash up!

About the location

SHERINGHAM

Cromer 4.8 miles.

Sheringham was originally a small fishing village on the North Norfolk coast, but with the arrival of the railways in 1887 it prospered and grew into a popular holiday town. Sheringham has been awarded ten consecutive European Blue Flags for cleanliness for its beach, along with awards from Britain in Bloom, Anglia in Bloom, and Best Coastal Resort. Enjoy walking along the East or West promenades, offering sea views with blue skies and red sunsets, a beach with a silver-pebbled shoreline leading to golden sands with rock pools and streams next to ochre cliffs, local fishing boats and a RLNI lifeboat station with museum. This attractive traditional seaside town also has the 'Little Theatre', open all year round, seaside gardens with seating, a model boating lake, independent shops, tea rooms, steam railway, golfing, amusement arcades, and fish & chip shops selling locally-caught fish.
