Floorplan

Village

The attractive village of South Creake (twinned with North Creake) has a lovely village green at its heart with the river Burn that runs through. When visiting the village, you will see the much-loved resident ducks crossing the road from the houses for a swim on the river. There is a lovely leafy recreation ground, park and village hall making it the hub of the village. You will often see local produce such as cakes and homegrown vegetables for sale from the small way-side stalls in the village and there is a thriving plant nursery and cafe. There is a welcoming community spirt in the village, making it a perfect place to unwind and take in the Norfolk air.

The Ostrich Inn, dating from the 1800s, has been refurbished to a high standard and now serves delicious locally sourced food in attractive surroundings.

History

On the hill above the village can be found the remnants of Bloodgate Hill fort, an Iron Age fortification that is the largest hill fort in Norfolk. It probably dates back around 300 years before the Romans. Roman coins and pottery have been found in the surrounding farmlands of the village.

Visit

Well worth a visit is Creake Abbey just outside of the village of North Creake with a lovely speciality shops. There is also an award-winning farmers' market on the last Saturday of each month. Close to Fakenham is the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve making for a lovely day out with walks around the lakes, gardens and also great fun for all the family with splendid children’s indoor and outdoor play areas. With the vast sandy beaches of the North Norfolk Coast just a short journey away at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham, this village is a great base from which to explore North Norfolk.

Cottage was well described, and was in very clean condition on arrival. Beautifully appointed and very well equipped with every piece of kitchen utensils you could wish for. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms all that you could wish for. Heating for both water and central heating was excellent And the lounge was super layout with deep comfy chairs. Overall a superb cottage in a lovely location. Very good central location which gave easy access to all of North Norfolk coastline. Holt a lovely little town, and the walks at Hunstanton are a delight.

We've had a fab 2 weeks at Cornloft Cottage. Lovely location & a smashing, well equipped and comfortable cottage. Recommend Wells to Holkham circular walk, Blakeney to Cley circular walk, Brancaster beach, a shopping trip and lunch in Holt (the Snug for lunch was lovely) and fish and chips at Henrys in Hunstanton.

Becky, Oliver and Family, 31st of August 2023

We loved our stay in Norfolk, we don't want to leave just yet.

Alfie, 21st of August 2023

We have had the most wonderful stay here at Cornloft Cottage. It's been so very relaxing and peaceful here. The cottage has been beautifully decorated, with attention to detail, with all the little finishing touches. It is very well equipped with everything you can possibly need. The cottage is also very well placed with a short drive to the coast and other places of interest and of course Burnham Market. I feel recharged and hope that we'll be able to return one day. Thank you Hayley for the lovely treats 'chocs, wine etc.' and it was so wonderful to meet up.

Nic & Jenn, 21st of July 2023

Thank you so much for such a lovely place to stay. Everything has ben perfect from accommodation, neighbours, weather, lovely beaches and the food and drink!... What more could we want?

Nicola, Jessica, Max and Melody, 27th of September 2022

What a lovely cottage to stay in for a sisterly catch up! Very well equipped and beautifully decorated. It was great to be able to show my sister the joys of this part of Norfolk. Two beach walks a day exhausted the dogs and we slept well in the very comfortable beds. Recommend the Duck Inn at Stanhoe, just 10 mins down the road. Definitely book again!

Katie and Vikki and families, 19th of September 2022

What a wonderful cottage for a break in Norfolk. Beautifully decorated and well equipped. My sister and I had a lovely time with our dogs and can’t wait to go back. The beaches will always be a highlight. Would have been a 5 apart from the separate garden, although the green is just in front of the house.

The Hurlows, 19th of September 2022

A great week on the coast. Did loads of walking ans saw some brilliant birds - Pink footed geese arrived in their thousands from Iceland. Very comfortable accommodation - just the job! Thanks very much

Gill, Trish and Barry, 16th of September 2022

Lovely cottage, well equipped. Nice situation looking over the village green. Good position to visit various parts of the coast. We enjoyed The Farmers Arms, North Creake - a real old-fashioned pub! Seeing thousands of Geese arriving from Greenland or the winter

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug.
