The village of Old Hunstanton was named in the Domesday book at ‘Hunestanestada’, it later became part of the Le Strange family estates. The parish church of St Mary is situated in the grounds of Hunstanton Hall (Grade 1 listed) home to the Le Strange family for centuries.


A great area for walkers and cyclists, close to the Peddars Way footpath as well as the National Cycle Route and the neighbouring Hunstanton town and the quiet villages of Holme-next-the-Sea and Ringstead. Just a short drive away is the royal residence of Sandringham Estate. Further along the North Norfolk Coastal Path the pretty villages of Thornham and Brancaster can be found, with many nature reserves along the way including RSPB Titchwell. The pretty Georgian village of Burnham Market with a range of independent shops surrounding the leafy village green is also a popular destination.

Guest reviews

The house was a delight, very well furnished indoors, the beds are extremely comfortable, the kitchen and conservatory make for a very sociable space so much do that we didn’t use the front room.
Being able to walk to the beach, pubs and park is perfect and great with children and a dog meant we could pop up the beach numerous times a day and to watch the sunset.

The Russell's, 31st of May 2024

Pleasant house in good location, close to local shop, cafe and beach. Nice sized accommodation with nice wrap around garden.My grandson loves the parks and arcades, so ideal location for him too!

The Redford's, 17th of April 2024

This accommodation was excellent with everything provided. We could not find fault with anything. The proximity to all the amenities such as the post office, the pub and if course, the beach.

The Rickwood's, 11th of April 2024

Lovely views of wildlife from upstairs windows. Beach within walking distance.

The Wood's, 18th of September 2023

We had an excellent family holiday in Mandalay . The location near the beach is wonderful and the house is comfortable and light with a good wrap around garden for children to play safely .. We liked the beach chairs and windbreak to take to the beach .We liked the well equipped kitchen and the welcome pack

The Drew's, 18th of August 2023

This is a very well-positioned house for all the amenities of Old Hunstanton with a short walk to the beach, several places to eat and the interesting art, craft and antiques centre. Visiting the beach, nearby Sandringham, Norfolk Lavender and the coastal path walks. Crazy golf in Hunstanton, good food at Caley Hall and The Lodge.

The Craigen's, 22nd of June 2023

The house is lovely.We really enjoyed our stay. There were only 2 minor issues, both en-suite showers sprayed water everywhere due to open doors and and the frying pans and wok badly need replacing. The beds were so comfy, we slept like logs.

The Clare's, 20th of June 2023

Excellent accommodation and location for a one-week seaside break for our family (three generations)

The Newmans, 5th of May 2023

Myself my husband and two small dogs had a lovely stay at the cottage the initial problem with the keys was quickly sorted. The kitchen in particular was a really nice roomy area and the wall TV was great . I have some mobility issues so the ground floor bedroom was a real bonus. It was good being so close to the beach and we had some very windy but lovely strolls along the beach . Being within walking distance of the village shop and their breakfast croissants and the Lodge restaurant, also the Ancient Mariner for meals/snacks was all very handy.

We had a lovely time. The house was clean and comfortable with lots of space. We enjoyed watching the hares in the fields and the sun streaming through the windows in the morning. We loved Old Hunstanton, crabbing in Wells-next-the-sea and visiting Stiffkey stores.

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.
