  • "The property was clean and well equipped and maintained to a high standard with easy access to the sea front."

    The landlord sorted the parking requirements before arrival and was contactable by phone if required which in our case was not a requisite

  • "We had a lovely stay at The Anchorage."

    Everything was close by and a morning walk by the sea before breakfast started the day off well. Beds were very comfortable so all of us were comfortable with that. Yes the upstairs bathroom is height restricted but no problem. We all used the downstairs shower room for daily showers. Wish we could have stayed longer but it was a trip to visit family so not really a holiday on our part. Plenty to see and do and walks all around. Some smashing local shops and the residents so pleasant with the us visitors.

  • "Lovely property in an excellent location; handy for the High Street and the sea."

    A great welcome with car parking sorted in advance and milk etc left for us. It was a very cold weekend, and the property is difficult to keep really warm being open plan so the extra heaters and blankets were appreciated!

  • "The Anchorage was a beautiful cottage, close to the beach in a quiet location."

    It was well presented with lovely open plan dining room/lounge, nice comfortable modern furniture and equipment, everything looked new and well kept. Kitchen lovely and clean, downstairs beddroom well appointed and the shower room was baeutiful. However, the upstairs was, apart from the bedroom, very disappointing. Although mention had been made of the low ceiling upstairs in the publicity, nothing had been said about the low door frame into the en suite bathroom and the need to almost bend double going in and once inside. It rendered the bath unusable as anyone other than a child could have got into the bath. The folding door was very difficult to get around even if the frame hadn't been so low. My poor head was scraped several times even though I'm 5'2 and bent over each time I entered and used bathroom. I'm sorry to be complaining as everything else was so good but as we like separate bedrooms, my sister and I will not be booking the anchorage again. this property is good for a couple with children but no two adults wanting separate bedrooms. Perhaps the bathroom upstairs could be loo and basin only? taking out the bath might help.

    The property location is so close to the sea front but at the same time very peaceful and relaxing..........excellent, thank you very much :)

  • "Very well equipped with top quality appliances and beautiful accessories etc."

    Very central location but did miss outside sitting space. Found shower floor very slippery and needed more storage space in bathroom. However, we had a superb week …..loads of places to visit and the local bus service was brilliant with very helpful drivers.

    Bed upstairs very hard/firm and I personally found this uncomfortable. Towels could be a better quality. Apart from that very well equipped & a lovely location. Helpful to have the parking permit. Loading/unloading a bit difficult.

  • "The Anchorage is a perfect holiday cottage and certainly exceeded our expectations."

    The photos don't show just how lovely this place is. It is superbly located just two minutes walk from the beach and around the corner from the high street yet is peacefully quiet. The property is very well equipped and extremely comfortable. As this was out first break since the pandemic lockdown we were a little anxious but there was no need. The cottage was spotless, hand sanitisers everywhere and there were sensible guidelines for bed linen and towels. Two of our party were less mobile and with a ground floor bedroom and walk in shower it was perfect. The upstairs bedroom is cosy with an ingeniously designed bathroom in the eaves. You have to duck to enter but this all added to the charm. The beds were very comfortable. Parking is not an issue, the nearest car park is just a few minutes walk away. The owner was great, good communication, easy check in and out and she also left a lovely local cake and some milk. One of the nicest cottages I've stayed in with Sykes, very recommended.

    Sarah has done it out beautifully. It’s really well equipped for four people although perhaps one more comfy chair would be even better. The beds were really comfortable too. Everything is there that you need and it’s in a great spot.

  • "Lovely holiday."

    Cottage bigger than expected and plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children. Perfectly located in centre of town with very easy and quick access to beach. Only thing to note was that during our February half term holiday, a to of Sheringham shops, restaurants and visitor attractions were closed for the low season. This in no way spoilt our holiday but worth noting. Car parking was very easy as this was all sorted for us as part of our booking. The car park was just a 1min walk away from the cottage and easy enough to unload and load car on arrival and departure.

  • "When you take a break in the middle of winter a warm comfy place to stay is a must."

    The Anchorage had this in spades. The owner had put up a Christmas tree and a few festive decorations, left us a bottle of wine in the fridge with milk and a super home made ginger cake . That’s going the extra mile to make us welcome. The lack of parking wasn’t a problem as the owner had paid for a weeks parking in the public car park which was only a minute away. I would recommend the anchorage without hesitation!

    Clean and well equipped and was actually better than the pictures portrayed. Car park only a couple of minutes walk. Sarah made sure that a permit would have been left but the payment machine was broken so not required. Instead she left a delicious welcoming ginger cake which didn’t last long. It is a great location for the town centre and beach, all very close so car wasn’t needed. Made for a very relaxing short break, thank you.

    Sarah the owner had kindly left a homemade cake and milk for us on our arrival. The cottage was as shown in photos and description. Although there was no outside space for parking using the nearby carpark on Cliff Road was not a problem. The upstairs bathroom was small but to a very nice standard and the downstairs shower room was excellent and also to a high standard.We found the cottage and Sheringham the perfect base for what we required for our holiday. After visiting the villages around the coast we felt Sheringham was a lovely seaside town. It was convenient to visit National Trust properties and Sandringham. We would recommend it if you want somewhere nice to stay in the area.

The cottage was quiet, homely, and was very well presented with all that was needed for our stay. There was even a tasty, home made cake on our arrival, which we thought was a lovely touch!
