There is a wooden pedestrian gate leading through to the private fully enclosed walled courtyard cottage garden. The outside area is paved and has a lovely table and chairs, parasol and stand, together with a barbeque.

It's only a short walk to the village playing fields with a childrens' playground and a tennis court, as well as a stream which is home to a huge family of ducks. There are also some fantastic country and coastal walks to enjoy nearby.



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.


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.


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.

Guest reviews

We’ve had a lovely few days in this cosy, comfortable and well appointed cottage. Perfect location for exploring the North Norfolk coast Due to the weather, we weren’t able to make use of the beautiful little walled garden, but imagine sitting out there on a summers evening would be lovely. Blustery walks on the beach at Brancaster and Holkham and cosy evenings in front of the fire.

The Wilkin's, 22nd of April 2024

It has to be the abundance of beautiful seaside-themed artifacts and pictures all around the house. It is immediately apparent that this is a treasured home. There is none of the empty soulness that is so often the wont of a holiday cottage.

The Stansfield's, 11th of September 2023

The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing stay - we really appreciated the welcome pack on our arrival, very thoughtful. It was the perfect base to explore the area from and we were so lucky with the weather!

the curnock's, 18th of August 2023

A peaceful and comfortable stay - the cottage had charm and character, and was clean, tidy and well appointed with everything we needed for a family stay. Tastefully decorated cottage with plenty of character, clean, comfortable and well located. Nice to have a few 'basics' in the kitchen- salt, pepper, oil, etc.

the Aykroyd's, 2nd of March 2023

Very clean and spacious cottage. Lovely quiet location. It has been laid out very well. I enjoyed chilling in evening with the wood burner going.

Allan, 25th of November 2022

Bigger than expected and even nicer than photos, nice decor, homely, and comfortable.

The Sands, 27th of May 2022

Fleece House is in a quiet and useful location, easy parking, well appointed, lots of space, pleasant decor. Thanks! Great place to stay.

Toby , 30th of July 2021

Fleece House is a delightful cottage that suited our needs very well. We liked the location, a lovely quiet village with a lovely stream and green play area for my grandson to play. The cottage had a lovely walled garden with beautiful roses and jasmine in flower

The Gibbs Family, 9th of July 2021

Fleece House was larger than we expected and we liked the brightness and location. Great holiday and very efficient staff at Sowerbys.

The Forrest Family, 17th of May 2021

A lovely cottage thoughtfully laid out for families with young children-plenty of games and books and the twin bedroom was perfect with a box of Lego and cars to amuse the kids. The enclosed courtyard was perfect for the kids and dog and the location was splendid with the park and ducks very close by. The cottage was lovely, warm and cosy with plenty of space and very clean and furnished well. Thank you for a lovely stay, we will be back!

Nicolle Party, 5th of January 2018

This is just a lovely cottage. Beautifully renovated and kitted out!
The space, layout, quality of all the provisions and how well equipped it was was what we liked the most.
A Very comfortable cottage - my father-in-law said the double bed was the the most comfortable he had ever slept in!

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.
