North Creake village lies on the River Burn which flows through the centre of the village, just 3 miles south of Burnham Market and 7 miles from the North Norfolk Coast. The village has the advantage of The Jolly Farmers pub and a village hall which provides a post office service. There is also a large picturesque church called St Mary’s. To the north of the village you can find Creake Abbey which has a farm shop, food hall, and a variety of speciality shops. There is also an award winning farmers market at Creake Abbey which takes place on the last Saturday of each month.
Many of the houses and surrounding farmland belong to the Earl Spencer, who consequently has significant influence in the village. During World War II in 1944 a de Havilland Mosquito fighter bomber crashed in the village and in 2004 a plaque was unveiled by a Royal Air Force guard of honour in the approximate location of the crash.
The 40 acre site of the Creake Abbey ruins dates back to the reign of Henry II and was a hospital and priory which was created due to the popularity as a place for ‘many needy folk flock to the best refuge of those oppressed by great misery’.
In the centre of North Norfolk, you are just inland from many of coastal villages with Burnham Overy Staithe, Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham just a short distance away. A trip to one of Norfolk's stately homes with Holkham Hall, Houghton Hall and Royal Sandringham you’ll be spoilt for choice. For something different for the family, why not visit Bircham Windmill and learn about bread making and pet the farm animals. There are also two fabulous deer safaris at Snettisham Park Farm or venture a little further for a full family day out Roar Dinosaur Adventure Park in Lenwade near Norwich.

First time back since new owners, still love the place! Feels like a home from home, a few more links to the area (i.e. Local pictures) would be nice, but a very comfortable place to come back to with everything you could want to make a great stay. Enjoyed catching up on Netflix (The Crown) as we don't have it at home. Wiveton Hall cafe opened up the day before we returned home (always love it there) enjoyed a lunch sitting in a hut looking over marshes as it was a warm today, perfect end to our break. Staff at Sowerbys were very helpful when we booked a second week, thanks again.
It's a lovely Base point to visiting all areas of North Norfolk,lovely to have a wood burner for the cold evenings.
Such a lovely well equipped cottage. We have been impressed by Docking after usually staying on the coast roads. Managed to have a full week of sunshine and reached Brancaster beach daily (which the dogs loved!) Hope to come back again next year.
Lovely, well equipped cottage. Very comfortable beds with high quality bed linen and towels. Beautiful artwork throughout. We thoroughly enjoyed our week. Lovely enclosed, sunny garden.
Thank you so much Hellen and Ben for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. It’s in the perfect location and really feels like a home with everything you need. The three of us think they are the comfiest beds, pillows and quilts.
Thank you again, we will definitely return.
Such a perfect find! The cottage is so well equipped with the best beds ever. Hellen has thought of everything. It is so beautifully styled throughout – thank you. We love the location too. It is spot on for visiting so many places without too far to drive. We absolutely loved it here.
A wonderful trip to Norfolk to celebrate a big Birthday. Hilltop is the perfect accommodation – it really is equipped with everything you could need. It’s in a perfect location, peaceful and friendly. When can we come back?
What a delightful property Hilltop is. Very well equipped and of a high standard. Excellent location to visit many areas on this coastline. Really enjoyed our holiday here. Hope to return again soon. Location of property. Very well equipped cottage. Immaculate and comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay. Thankyou.
Enjoyable stay in a well-presented cottage.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hilltop. The cottage is very spacious, well equipped, warm and comfortable. The beds (super king in the twin room) were comfortable, the towels, super soft and a great size.
Lovely, comfortable cottage, well situated for the North Norfolk coast. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We especially liked the thought that has gone into making the guest's stay easy, like tabs and rinse aid for the dishwasher. We don't have a dishwasher at home and so wouldn't bring these items with us, but really appreciate the fact that the owner provides them, so nice to have a holiday from the washing up! We enjoyed the garden room, lovely room to sit with a cuppa looking out over the fields, or to sit quietly with a book.
Thank you so much for yet another fabulous holiday at your cottage it was just perfect. Thank you also for the bottle of fizz. It gets harder to leave this perfect little cottage each time we stay.
We had a nice break despite a bit of bad weather. You’ve got a nice place over there, and we would not hesitate to go again.
We had an amazing time thank you despite the bad weather. We had everything we needed there and it was so cosy. You are very lucky to own it !!
I thought the decor and furnishings were beautifully thought out - someone has an eye for detail which I appreciated. It was also very comfortable and we felt very relaxed in the cottage. Despite not having the usual Norfolk sunshine, we really enjoyed our week, thank you!
It was very comfortable and had everything that you needed in a holiday cottage. Loved the views from the conservatory and upstairs main bedroom.
As always very peaceful and has a welcoming feeling at Hilltop. 10 out of 10 for the cleanliness and we hope to return again next year!
Hilltop was absolutely wonderful, thank you so much, I will be back next year if allowed! And thank you for the lovely prosecco!
Very comfortable & spotlessly clean with high quality fixtures & fittings throughout. Would love to return to Hilltop someday & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this holiday property to family, friends & colleagues
Hilltop is a perfect cottage with all the facilities we required & ideal garden with lovely plum trees. Just what we all needed with what is going on in the world, a real “ get away from it all “ place,would have liked another couple of bath towels.
Home from Home as been a few times...love it!! A big thank you to all concerned. Had a fantastic break x
Thank you for a perfect weekend in your perfect cottage. Beautiful weather bit of a strange one as places closed due to COVID-19 but it didn't spoil our break. Loved it!
Fourth time here, always so lovely. People out walking on the beach supporting farm shops and local businesses at a difficult time with the coronavirus. We had an amazing time and just love Hilltop. Thanks as always,
Overall Hilltop ia a lovely little cottage. We liked The Dog proof garden! Very cosy and everything you would need for a great stay-with the added extra of the chickens next door...Great entertainment!
Better than Expected - The house was really comfortable - well equipped and well decorated. The wonderful conservatory - with its beautiful views - was really appreciated. The well-equipped kitchen - we made full use of the coffee machine! - the comfortable beds. The enclosed garden was also great for our dog. A lovely stay in this very comfortable and peaceful cottage, thank you.
Hilltop was better than Expected - New bathroom since last visit. Very comfortable and 10 out of 10 for cleanliness... love everything about it. Will be back year!
We had the perfect Christmas getaway. Our first time being away from family for Christmas and the cottage was a perfect break. It is a very cosy and homely cottage and the photos don’t do this property justice. The garden room was brilliant for watching the rolling hills. We would stay here again for sure, everything is very high quality and comfortable. Thank you!
It’s just simply a lovely cottage. it's our 5th visit to this cottage that all the family keep returning to!
Well equipped holiday cottage convenient for the North Norfolk coast. Superb beds and a log burner for the chilly evenings. In a delightful village with a great little supermarket and a pub. The owners haven't forgotten anything and have provided a comprehensive information folder with many suggestions of things to do and places to visit.
Hilltop is in a great location and is clean and spacious, a very well appointed property with a very nice enclosed garden. We enjoyed our stay and had a very nice holiday. Thank you.
Better than Expected - Lots of refurbishment since our last visit! Cleanliness 10 out of 10 We like Hilltop for the good location, for places we like to go, comfortable cottage and big and enclosed garden. This was the 2nd year for us to stay at Hilltop and we loved it even more with the recent improvements. We had a lovely time in this cosy cottage and the mid-holiday clean was great. Thank you!
Was total pleasure to stay at hilltop, calm, private and peaceful. So easy as so well stocked, clean and cosy. All you new and more, such a beautiful and private space.
The cottage was lovely and in the perfect location to explore everywhere we wanted to. After many times driving through Brancaster we finally found and made use of the beach which was fantastic being so close by. Also made numerous trips to Burnham Market, Holkham Hall, Sandringham and further afield to Cromer and Sheringham.
The children loved the bedroom they shared and made great use of the garden – ‘camping’ in it in our beach tent!
We definitely hope to visit again and our friends and relatives have shown interest in staying there at some point too.
We have stayed here three times, Excellent cottage. Like everything about Hilltop, newly refurbished bedrooms and bathroom are excellent!
The cottage is very cosy and characterful. We particularly enjoyed having the garden room as an additional seating area. We spent a very relaxing and enjoyable week in Hilltop cottage. It is a very well presented and nicely furnished property and we were very grateful for the generous welcome gifts. It is in a perfect location for exploring the north Norfolk coast and we would definitely return if staying in the area again. Hilltop is one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in and we highly recommend it.
We love it and have already booked again for next year. Thank you!
Very happy with the cottage and made for the perfect week even though the sun went missing!! Location perfect for all of North Norfolk and also very peaceful.
We loved our stay at Hilltop and will definitely return. I was delighted with the mid-holiday clean as only expected a linen change and came back to a sparkling clean Cottage. Wonderful! A lovely home from home with very safe enclosed garden.
The location, atmosphere, layout, garden all great. It’s a really lovely house. It’s lovely. We can’t wait to go back in September!
We have returned so often, it never fails to please.
Lunch in the garden takes a lot of beating.

Having stayed new year last year we already knew we loved Hilltop, so much so we stayed for 2 weeks this time - home from home. Sad to leave but time to return to normal life. Each of us has our favourite space- J&J love the lounge and soft/comfy beds. I&C love love love the garden room. A wonderful time together in a wonderful cottage. Thank you x
Most enjoyable week. Nice and cosy. Thank you for welcome pack. Garden birds a joy to watch. We all look forward to coming back again.
Hilltop is like a home from home. There is everything you could need and all a first class standard. Every year you are improving things and we loved the new kitchen this time. The peace and quiet are wonderful. We have been every year since 2007.
Thank you so much.
Better than expected as in reality the cottage is even better than the photos. Liked everything and every need was catered for. Thank you.
Cosy comfortable cottage thoughtfully equipped with delightful garden. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the welcome pack.
Lovely relaxing week in our favourite part of norfolk. Same as before, the cottage is a joy to come back to after a walk in a scenic place (especially Wells beach). Enjoyed the views from the garden room -seen several buzzards! Thank you so much, really thrilled!
This was our second visit and the cottage has been improved. Liked the new kitchen/fridge/cooker and the lovely decoration. Also like the high quality of equipment, furnishings etc.
The only other thing we would have liked at Hilltop cottage was a "For Sale" sign as we wanted to buy the cottage!
This is one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in within this price range. Clean, warm cottage, welcome pack, towels included and new furniture. Wifi really appreciated.
