A small hamlet of a village that lies between Walsingham and South Creake. You will be excused for not knowing about this tiny village as there are less than dozen houses in total. The farmland that surrounds the village is mainly owned by the Holkham Estate, much of the village as we see it today was owned by the estate. In 1873  Holkham Estate built farmworkers cottages and in recent years most have become private dwellings. The Church of St Edmund is a ruin that sits on a mound in the village and it a Grade II listed building.


This unknown village was one of Norfolk's lost villages as it almost ceased to exist in 1538 after the Dissolution of Monasteries. The king granted the manor house and the patronage of the church to Sir James Boleyn. Seventy years later on there was only one house remaining in the village. There is a former RAF Airfield in Egmere originally a secret WWII bomber base on the former RAF North Creake Airfield.


This is a wonderful area with nearby Walsingham village steeped in history and enchantment to the east, with its renowned Walsingham farm shop and sacred shrines to discover. The wonderful coastal town of Wells-next the-Sea with its glorious sandy beaches is less than 10 minutes drive away and there is a lot to explore. Take a day trip to Holkham Hall and gardens and spot the deer roaming near the lake, or head to Morston and enjoy a seal trip followed by a tasty pub lunch at the Anchor Inn.

Comfortable cottage in a good location with plenty to do in close proximity for adults, kids and dogs. Beautiful coastline with stunning beaches to discover and a great woodburner and pool table to come back to when weather's not great. Nice location near fantastic coastline for crabbing, seal spotting and walking.

The Sampson's, 11th of April 2024

Our 5th or 6th stay at Egmere Cottage. We love the location and the feel of the cottage, a real home from home. Garden is perfect for the kids and the dog, and the pool table in the summerhouse is perfect on a rainy day! Our highlights were Wells, Holkham and Blakeney. We also visited Cavies and Cake, the guinea pig cafe in Fakenham which we all thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely recommend (must be pre booked).
First visit to Sculthorpe Moor too, which was only 10 minutes from the cottage and well worth a visit (take binoculars!).

The Eagling's, 11th of August 2023

Lovely, well equipped, comfortable cottage.
Great location, especially for the North Norfolk Coast.
All in all had a fabulous holiday.

The Morgan's, 23rd of June 2023

The Szymkiw's, 21st of June 2023

Lovely cottage well placed for Wells as well as Burnham Market and Brancaster. Very cosy and comfortable beds, with an enclosed garden safe from the road for our dogs.

The cottage was a delight and very comfortable.The beds and sofa's were very comfortable and the conservatory was our go to place to watch the world go by!!

Egmere Cottage is a good size nice and cosy - loved the wood burner. We enjoyed our stay and felt that the property had been well equipped and had a home from home feeling

The Rosier Family, 2nd of October 2020

Egmere Cottage was better than expected. It was fully equipped, with deck in garden was a suntrap and it's a very secure garden for dog, 10 out of 10. We also liked the conservatory too!

Hankin Party, 3rd of June 2019

Absolutely fantastic holiday overall - Very comfortable and 10 out of 10 for cleanliness and the garden.

Mr Davies, 26th of May 2019

We liked the level of prettiness, neatness and thoughtfulness as most of Sowerbys cottages that I've stayed in 10 out of 10 for the cleanliness and garden Even though it's November I liked the garden and conservatory and proximity to the fields. The pillows were squeaky and the duvet too, maybe old feathers! We would stay again

Diane Redmond, 3rd of November 2018

Been to the cottage before and knew it would be brilliant We loved sitting in the conservatory watching and hearing the birds. Highly recommended....everything you could want is provided...real home from home.

The Nicholsons, 10th of April 2015

This has been our second stay here at Egmere and we've enjoyed it just as much as the first. Despite the weather, there has been a lovely relaxing atmosphere and it's given us the long week of rest and recuperation we all needed! Thank you so much Egmere Cottage!!

Delightful cottage, exceptionally well equipped. Fantastic base for the North Norfolk coast. Hope to return!

Rodger and Helen, 4th of October 2013

Really lovely, well equipped cottage, thank you to the cleaner - it was spotless! I would love to say it was a home from home but I can't - this is much nicer than my home! I'm going home to redecorate and build a conservatory!!

The Bissells, 27th of September 2013

Lovely, warm and welcoming cottage. Dogs loved the garden! Had a relaxing time as usual in this part of the world!

The Croxfords, 20th of September 2013

You have created a most welcoming and comfortable cottage and we are grateful as it has made our time here so very enjoyable. We are all looking forward to our next visit as still so much to see and do and we hope we can stay with you again. Your cottage and your approach is a credit to you both.

The Knights and Bells, 21st of June 2013

A true gem! We have stayed in many, many cottages (especially this area) but you have succeeded in offering the very best! Thank you. We have all appreciated the little extras, the comfort and love you have lavished on Egmere Cottage. We have already booked our return!

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property.
