Lovely comfortable cottage in a secluded location yet only a short walk to the facilities in Burnham Deepdale. Plenty of wildlife in the vicinity of the cottage including hares, deer & a wide variety of birds. Visits to the RSPB reserve at Titchwell & the beach at Holkham.

The Watkin's, 13th of May 2024

We had a really great stay at East Cottage. It felt homely and relaxed and it was also great to be able to take our dog with us. The kitchen was very well stocked despite being small. The large lounge with the gorgeous windows was such a lovely room to be in. We loved the location - the feeling of space and privacy, while not feeling isolated. The space to park two cars was helpful and we also appreciated that the garden was enclosed.

The Callaghan's, 17th of April 2024

We had the perfect Christmas break at East Cottage. From the beautifully decorated tree and the fabulous log burner the house was so cosy and comfortable it was the perfect "get away from it"retreat. The setting is wonderful if you are a nature lover with deer and pheasants to be spotted and owls hooting at night. All in all this is a lovely property which is like a home from home. Sitting by the cozy log burner and Christmas tree with the wind howling in the trees outside. Spotting the wildlife on our morning walks and drives down the lane.The feeling of remoteness but with everything easily accessible.

The McDonnell's, 5th of January 2024

A lovely little private cottage well off the beaten track. Comfortable and well equipped with a nice private garden. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay The garden room was lovely.

The Seal's, 12th of October 2023

We have been staying here, for 7 years. beautiful peaceful location hidden away in the trees. beautiful views walking down the track to the shops and cafe. Comfortable beds and plenty of room to socialise as a family in the evening in the gorgeous lounge.

The Brandon's, 12th of October 2023

Clean property. Lovely location. The living room is very light so although we were not blessed with good weather everyday, it was a light space.

The Clegg's, 5th of September 2023

Lovely location with inspiring views going down drive. Many Hares and Muntjacs. Particularly enjoyed birds feeding in garden, such as Bullfinch. Proximity to Norfolk Coastal Path was something our party made full use. Enabled our adult family group to have a fun time together.

, 5th of September 2023

Superb base to explore the local area in a beautiful setting if you want peace, quiet and wildlife on your doorstep. 10 minute walk down a private drive to local shops and 15 minutes to two excellent pubs in Brancaster Staithe. Very well equipped and comfortable with private secure garden. Sitting out in the thoughtfully laid out garden early morning and in the evening. Walks from the door looking down on the beautiful Norfolk coast line and watching the boats. Being able to walk to a very de ent good store, fresh fish shop for all our catering needs and /or pub. The vibe in Burnham Deepdale pop up market, Seals watching on Brancaster Beach.

The Bank's, 29th of June 2023

East Cottage is a delightful place to stay. The cottage itself is so comfortable and well equipped but the peaceful location is really the icing on the cake. If you love peace and quiet and nature this is the place to be. Spotting a pheasant, hare and baby muntjack all together in the field.

The Mcdonald's, 19th of June 2023

Lovely position, very peaceful and rural. Well stocked. Good sized rooms and overall very comfortable. I used to live in Norfolk, so I had great pleasure in revisiting old haunts and seeing friends. My family came for the first weekend and we did the seal trip to Blakeney Point in very good weather.

The Henderson's, 10th of May 2023

Wonderful stay, superb location, peaceful setting, incredible wildlife around. Extension/lounge with log burner spectacular and comfortable. Incredible walks along the coastal path from Burnham Deepdale to Burnham Norton, Burnham Overy Staithe and Brancaster

Weather lovely for the majority of the week, wonderful coastal walks, quality family time to relax and destress! Dog loved the stay.

The McDonnell's, 18th of November 2022

Our second visit to this wonderful cottage in such a lovely location. We return to the area every year because we love it so much. We have stayed in may cottages but East Cottage is our favourite. We enjoyed coastal walks, visiting national trust properties and other places of interest and local pubs. Lovely to see local wild life including deer and foxes.

The Sebastia Family, 28th of October 2022

Loved the cottage, the garden room with woodburner was a delight. The location was idyllic & the wildlife enchanting. One early evening we saw the resident barn owl, in full hunting mode.
