Guest reviews

We were at Beech Cottage last year and enjoyed it so much that we booked twice again this year. We were not disappointed and the cottage is still as charming as ever and well appointed with lovely decor and quality materials. We had a great time made better by the sunny weather turning up for us for the bulk of the holiday. We ate every night at the White Horse and some lunchtimes at Eric's or Creake Abbey Cafe. Both worth a visit.
Really looking forward to or next week in September Can’t come quick enough. Thanks for a great time.

John, 14th of June 2024

Our second visit to this lovely cottage with our cairn terrier Maddie. Although the weather could have been kinder the cottage and its facilities and decor cannot be improved on, really superb. The location is excelent for trips to the local beaches and marshes.Jackie,Rick and Maddie. Highlights were walking along the beautiful beaches with Maddie chasing her ball and the waves.

Jacqueline, 27th of May 2024

Lovely cottage as always, very clean and everything we could wish for in the kitchen, bed comfy, nice dog house for our four legged friend to get dry nice walks from doorstep.This is our forth time in this lovely cottage, but unfortunately may be our last stay not by choice as my husband has Parkinson’s and so the driving is left to me and I now find it’s just a bit too far for me alone to drive but thank you for sharing we felt very sad when leaving for what would be the last time so thank you.

Lesley, 17th of May 2024

Lovely cottage, just right for access to the local area. Visits to the local beaches.

The Knowles's, 20th of April 2024

A week at Beech Cottage is a wonderful, 'bolthole' experience, for me and my dog, lots of walks and cosy evenings in front of the wood burner at this time of year. I absolutely love visiting this cottage and look forward to staying again in June 2024. Everything in the cottage is always spotless and very well organised.

Ms Durie, 15th of April 2024

This cottage was a wonderful combination of functionality and pleasing aesthetic! The house had everything I needed and it was so practical. There were plenty of hocks and shelves in all the right places. The bathroom was a joy to use - the shower was brilliant. Almost the best thing for me was the garden which had been divided into three really lovely sections with gates into each one - very useful when you have a little dog. The parking was very helpful and convenient too. The village is idyllic - peaceful and quiet - and we didn't need to get in the car to go for great walks.

The Dakin's, 12th of April 2024

Delightful, thoughtfully well equipped cottage in a quiet village. The cottage is well positioned for walking. We were only there for the weekend but did The Burnhams walk on Sunday with lunch at The Hero.

The Spoor's, 16th of October 2023

We had a lovely 2nd visit and very pleased with the cottage and facilities. Perfect for a couple and small dog. Location for walks and cleanliness, cosiness and tranquillity of the cottage.Many thanks for letting us share your lovely cottage.

The Austin's, 29th of September 2023

Guestbook review: Excellent cottage for a relaxing stay for two plus a dog. The cottage has a welcoming friendly feel as soon as you arrive and is extremely well designed with with great taste and high quality materials making it a pleasure to be there. The owners are to be applauded for the way they have tried to think through what a guest needs for the stay with lots of detailed touches in each room right down to hi viz jackets for walkers and collars for the dog. We loved it and have booked two visits in 2024. Thank you for letting us use Beech Cottage. We enjoyed Local restaurants beaches and walks. North Norfolk is a beautiful county anyway made better by the luck with the weather.

John McMillan , 9th of September 2023

Excellent cottage for one or 2 people. Always excellent in N. Norfolk whatever the weather. Welcoming, good atmosphere, excellent.

The chichester-clark's, 6th of September 2023

We have been to Beech Cottage before and enjoyed our visit again. We especially like the location, quiet and comfort if the bed. The location- by the marshes with lots of walking available nearby.

The Greenhalgh's, 24th of April 2023

I have much enjoyed my return visit this year to Beech Cottage, my bolthole on the coast. I love the peace and quiet of its location. The cottage is always welcoming and has everything I need to ensure a happy and comfortable stay for me and my dog. The garden is maintained wonderfully well. It is always a joy to see how much the owners take care for their cottage and ensure that everything is provided for the visitors' comfort. I love being by the coast and the coastal path in particular. At this time of year, it is not yet too busy and there is always plenty of bird life and nature to enjoy. It really doesn't matter if the weather is a bit changeable, the landscape and sky colours are always captivating. The best bit is coming back to the cottage, lighting the fire to take away the chill of a windy day, and looking back over the many photographs of the day while supper is cooking.

The Durie's, 28th of March 2023

Perfect for a couple with a small dog. Beautifully renovated. The owners have carefully thought of everything for dog owners. Renovated to high spec with top quality materials and genius attention to detail and great location for walks. Fantastic place. We’ve been coming to North Norfolk for 11 years and this cottage is one of the best. We’d love to come again. Thank you to the owners for letting us share their wonderful cottage.

Neil and Louise, 28th of October 2022

This is a delightful cottage, very cosy with everything so clean and well thought out. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the skeins of geese flying out in the gathering darkness. Being able to park the car close to the property is a real bonus.

Gillian and Ian, 21st of October 2022

Beech Cottage was a perfect choice for our week enjoying coastal walks in North Norfolk. It was warm, comfortable, well equipped and everything was spotlessly clean. Little 'extras' - like a local OS map and torches - were appreciated
