The village has been a farming village since the Romans, it was the Saxons that gave the village its name Stanhoe (Stony Hill).

In the 19th Century the parish priest was Philip Ward the husband of Lord Nelsons daughter Horatia.

Guest reviews

Fabulous cottage. We really enjoyed our stay at this well equipped cottage.
We only booked downstairs which was beautifully furnished and equipped. We were thinking of booking again with the rest of the family but the stairs are very steep and only suitable for younger guests. We were impressed with the overall quality of the cottage. Very very clean - thank you.
Ideally positioned for the coast and days out in North Norfolk.

All Sowerbys holiday cottages are supplied with bed linen and towels and the cost of heating is included in the rental price.

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. This is not permitted because of fire regulations regarding wiring, earthing rods and voltage restrictions; it poses a serious fire risk to standard 13 amp sockets and there is a real danger that the body of the vehicle could become live.
