A country cottage full of character straight out of the 1950's. Probably more suited to families with children than the over 70's as the stairs are steep and twisting. Good rural location yet within easy access of the coast and Norfolk's many scenic locations.

Reviewed by Helen 16th August 2019

The perfect location for exploring the North Norfolk coastline, with a beautiful. Courtyard to sit and chill out afterwards. This house is not suitable for under 5s, the stairs are dangerous and there is no bathroom upstairs for the kids room to use, so its even more of an issue if one of the kids want to get up in the night.

It was very well situated in a very peaceful location, beautifully appointed and equipped. Being two cottages knocked into one I found myself going through the wrong door occasionally! The stairs would be tricky for anyone with mobility problems but with care all was well. We look forward to our next visit.

My fourth annual stay at Honeysuckle Cottage and the property keeps on getting better with small improvements adding to the familiar elements that make this such a special place. Frankly it feels like home - simple, traditional, idiosyncratic and wholly delightful. Add the superb location and you've a thoroughly magical place.

Great location for walks and short 5 min drive to the beautiful Holt, pub is walking distance and very nice. Great get away for all...

We had a wonderful time here at Xmas! The cottage was extremely tastefully decorated (photos don't do it justice) in a Scandinavian cottage feel and the hosts had even put up festive decs for us. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, including roasting trays, a grater, chopping boards and serving dishes. There were pet bowls and towels too! The Read moresitting room is a little 'snug' for a full house but the bedrooms were spacious and there was lots of room at the table to play board games! Hide

Absolutely lovely cottage. Perfect for our needs, very quiet and close to some of the lovely areas that North Norfolk has to offer.

Reviewed by C 3rd August 2018

Pretty decor and lovely quiet location base. I love the steep winding stairs, all part of the cottage charm. The walls are thick enough that we couldn't hear any noise from the other bedroom, meaning peaceful lay ins. Had all the equipment we needed, you just need to take towels.

Beautiful cottage in a great location, close to Holt and fantastic beaches.

We absolutely loved our stay! Idillic location. So peaceful & relaxing. Garden both sides; courtyard & grass area nicely linked by a little gate & secure so that our dog could enjoy running around & playing too. Everything you could possibly need, a true home away from home. Very comfortable.
