The Village

A delightful village and one of Norfolk's best kept secrets, this peaceful village is located off the beaten track and makes a great base in which to explore Norfolk. This gem of a village has an array of listed buildings including the renowned Gin Trap Inn which serves delicious locally sourced food and drinks - a wonderful destination for dining and also a great stock of over 100 gins. If that does not whet your appetite, Ringstead has a great village general store which sells all you want and more! From fresh bread to local organic meats and cheeses, to seasonal vegetables down to the humble newspaper. They also have a collection of antiquities and bric a brac so make sure you have plenty of time to browse.

The village is perfect for walking and cycling, not only is the village on the Peddars Way route leading to the beautiful coast at Holme, and along the National Cycling Route, it also has wonderful Ringstead Downs: one of the largest chalk grasslands in the country, many interesting plants, wildlife and birds can be seen. Spectacular walks for all the family including your four-legged friend too!


Located approximately 2 miles away from the popular seaside town of Hunstanton where you can enjoy many activities from kayaking to crazy golf. The town has an array of seafront amusements for all the family. Whether you want to take your bucket and spade to the sandy beaches of Old Hunstanton, enjoy a stroll with your furry friend, or fine dine at the Neptune Michelin starred restaurant there’s something for everyone close by. There are also three grand houses in the area to visit: Sandringham Estate, Houghton Hall and Holkham Hall. All three have gardens, grounds and tearooms making for a great day out. You will find that there are many local delis and delicacies to try like samphire or delicious local mussels. Visit Burnham Market and pick up some freshly made fish cakes from Gurneys, it is also a wonderful leafy village to browse the many boutique and independent shops and restaurants.

Beautiful Cottage, really enjoyed our stay.

The Lewis's, 29th of March 2023

What a lovely week I've had with my dog at Garden Cottage, Ringstead. The Cottage was beautiful and peaceful and Bo had kindly left a box of brownies and a tube of hand sanitizer (a sign if the times!). A perfect retreat - having the enclosed private garden was just what I needed and the nearby Ringstead Downs was a lovely place to walk. Thank you

Jenny and Dancer the greyhound, 5th of October 2020

As Expected - True to the online description, 10 out of 10 for cleanliness. Garden cottage was a perfect bolt hole for Christmas. It was very warm and so peacefully quiet. Close to lots of beaches which the dog enjoyed very much.

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.
