An attractive Norfolk farming village which is defined by the large pretty duck pond in the heart of the village. Many of the properties in Stanhoe are constructed from traditional brick and flint with curvy pantiles on the roof, making for many pretty chocolate box homes.

There is a great award-winning gastropub in Stanhoe called The Duck Inn known for its use of local produce and delicious East Anglian Ales. A warm inviting feel greets you in this village eatery and a great menu, making it a good destination either for a nice evening meal or a relaxing drink - make sure you book ahead!


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.


Stanhoe is close to the popular Georgian village destination of Burnham Market, known for the great selection of independent shops that surround the picturesque village green. There's a butcher, baker, hardware store, popular fishmonger and also lovely cafes and many eateries,as well as boutiques and galleries to peruse. Just a short drive away is the vast Norfolk coastline with the sailing villages of Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Overy Staithe, open sandy beaches at Brancaster and Holme, with splendid coastal walks, ideal for all the family and your four-legged friend too!

2nd time staying in this cottage, yet again ideal base for our week in north Norfolk. Great family evening meal at the duck inn minutes walk away.

The Coughlan 's, 6th of June 2024

Grasshopper was recommended by our son who stayed earlier in the year. It came up to our expectations. Comfy, relaxing and in a peaceful setting. We enjoyed watching the wildlife opposite on the field. Perfect for exploring the local area. We had some lovely walks. We visited the Anthony Gormley exhibition at Houghton hall with it's beautiful gardens.

The Illot's, 23rd of May 2024

Beautifully peaceful cottage with quality fixtures and fittings, fully enclosed garden and plenty of walking , eating and relaxing places just a short car ride away. The tranquil surroundings, no clocks in cottage , delicious food in several pubs nearby, enclosed garden, spotlessly clean cottage with highest quality soft furnishings.
The welcome pack and note from the owner were a very much appreciated and we could happily live in Grasshopper cottage. Thank you, it was our first holiday in over 4 years and we couldn't have stayed anywhere nicer.

The Coombes, 27th of June 2023

The cottage was very clean on arrival. The bed was very comfortable and overall it was a very well equipped cottage. Lovely welcome pack with a welcome card. Our dogs enjoyed a very secure garden (lots say they are but on inspection they aren’t) and it was nice to see the rabbits and a badger wondering across the lawn.

The Ness's, 21st of June 2023

4th if not 5th visit so we've said it all!

The Hugh's, 6th of April 2023

We really enjoyed our fortnight stay at Grasshopper Cottage. It was an ideal place to spend Christmas the New Year. The coast is within a 15-minute drive. The setting is beautiful and was perfect for us with our dog. I would recommend this place to anyone.

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.
