St Francis is a delightful cottage and equipped far beyond expectations. Aside from the extraordinary location almost adjacent to the Walsingham shrine there are two of the finest houses in England within a few miles (Houghton and Holkham) and long beaches up the road. We were emailed by the owner a few days before arrival providing details of faciRead morelities and urging us to contact her directly in case of any problems during our stay. I cant think of a better holiday let in last. 20 years! Hide

What a cheerful, well-equipped cottage. Spotlessly clean with everything you might need, (or have forgotten). On the edge of a lovely village with walks from the doorstep and a nice pub only a short walk away. The owner has thought of everything - a very generous host. We had slight concerns before we arrived about the proximity of the nearby road Read more(it looks quite a big road on the map) but we weren't disturbed at all. It's a country road, in a peaceful location. Holiday home perfection. Hide

We had a wonderful family holiday staying in St Felix & St Francis. The decor, cleanliness and comfort make the well-appointed cottages a joy to come back to each day. There are masses of books, games, dvds and other welcoming surprises. St Francis is particularly spacious with a separate private garden leading down to a stream.

This cottage was absolutely gorgeous. It was really well laid out and very well presented. It was clear that a lot of time and effort had been spent on it. It was very clean, too. We loved that there were lots of board games and the wine and cake left out was a lovely welcoming treat. It's in a great location and really handy with parking. We lovedRead more it! Hide

We had a lovely week at St Francis over Easter. We were a 3 generation group and felt the cottage worked equally well for the young and elderly.

Just returned from a superb stay at this stunning property. Will definitely be returning! Thoughtfully kitted out with everything you need for a luxurious break in a space that is beautifully decorated to balance modern tastes and respect for the cottage's heritage. Location is brilliant to explore the stunning coastline. Equally, the private & shaRead morered gardens, stream, local amenities, eateries and fab park just around the corner make it a great base for a restful getaway. Perfect for our family Hide
