  • "Glad to say that the points from previous reviews had been addressed."

    There was no odour from the sink and the new shower worked well. The weather for our stay in January was very cold, but we could maintain a comfortable temperature in the cottage. The cottage is small but comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were pleased to learn that Sheringham remains a lively town even in the middle of winter. We enjoyed our stay.

  • "Great little house, very cute."

    Perfect for a few days stay and was exactly as described. We were a party of 2 adults, 2 children (14 and 10) and 2 labradoodles. We would definitely stay again. Our only issue was the shower, it was either scolding hot or freezing cold, no inbetween. But that could also have been user error? We’re not sure? LOL. Overall, it was very good. We’ve stayed in a few houses in Sheringham over the years and this is now one of our favourites. Very clean too!

  • "Although the cottage was clean, there was a strong odour from the drain we had to keep the plug in the sink."

    It was very cold although there were electric radiators we kept on it didn't reach a comfortable temperature for a winter stay. Shower unit was dangerous; tried various settings but it was either scalding hot or cold with very poor flow. Sad to say we came home early as it just wasn't suitable for our Christmas break.

  • "A beautiful cottage in a perfect location."

    The only problem, which I understand is long running, is the smell from the drains. At times not nice, but did come and go. I understand this is being addressed. One of the cleanest properties we have stayed in. Comfortable bed and sofa too. Dog friendly with a small secure gravel garden. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

  • "We loved the cosiness of the cottage, the close proximity to shops and especially the beach."

    Furthermore, it is a very quiet location. We had a great week.

  • "We had a fabulous time the cottage it is small but it was lovely."

    How ever the toilet seat was a bit loose could do with looking at and the shower a bit of a dribble but other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay .Thank you

The property

Resting centrally in the East Anglian town of Sheringham in Norfolk is Lobster Pot Cottage, a delightful, two-bedroom dwelling.

Located paces away from a hub of shops and eateries, and within walking distance to the beach, Lobster Pot Cottage offers the ideal base for a seascape, inviting four guests and one furry companion.

Park up to the nearby roadside before travelling on foot to the cottage, entering through the enclosed front patio, and reaching its charming, stable door.

Be welcomed into the spacious open-plan living area, the true heart of the home, where you can prepare delectable meals in the well-equipped kitchen, dine as a group, and unwind with the TV for some light entertainment; the space oozes a homely feel, complete with nautical accessories, reflecting its surrounding.

If you'd prefer to dine under the sunlight, set the bistro table and enjoy an alfresco affair upon the patio with a glass of wine in hand.

Catch some rest in one of the two bedrooms on offer, including a well-appointed king-size and a handy bunk room, before awakening to a refreshing shower in the sleek, ground-floor shower room.

Prepare for your coming days before heading to Sheringham Beach or the local boating lake for stunning vistas, ahead of grabbing a bite to eat at The Two Lifeboats, Whelk Coppers Tea Rooms, or the Windham Arms; in the area, you'll also locate the North Norfolk Railway, where you can board one of its steam trains and explore the area, and Sheringham Golf Club, ideal for golf fanatics.

Remain at the coast, reaching Cromer, its bustling pier and golden shoreline, or head to the Amazona Zoo, before exploring the Norfolk Coast AONB some more.

End your break in the city, offering the opportunity to tour Norwich Cathedral, discover The Plantation Garden, or attend one of the many shows offered at the Norwich Theatre Royal, before returning home for supper.

Enjoy all of this at Lobster Pot Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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.
