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!

Excellent house keeping as usual. Layout is perfect for us as is the location. Will keep coming back.

The Crouzieres-Jones , 30th of March 2024

A spacious, stylish and well equipped property in a lovely quiet village location. Peace and quiet together with stylish and comfortable accommodation. The playing field opposite was ideal for exercising our dog.

The Harrison's, 19th of October 2023

A lively, luxurious bungalow in a wonderful setting! We loved our stay and felt it was probably one of the best equipped cottages we’d hired in Norfolk. Highlights watching the meteor shower through the beautiful roof windows above the dining area!

The Woodall's, 16th of September 2023

A fabulous cottage in a great location for exploring the North Norfolk coast and villages. Well equipped and very spacious. We loved our stay here. Peaceful quiet location but walking distance to a lovely pub (but sad to hear when we visited it was closing on Sunday but hopefully this will be temporary). The food at the Duck Stanhope was excellent. Had some great beach walks at Wells , Brancaster, Cromer and Old Hunstanton - all dog friendly. Loved pottering around Burnham Market & Wells. The coffee and cakes at BTOI (Wells ) were fabulous as we're the croissants & bread from the Two Magpies Bakery at Cromer.

Elaine , 20th of March 2020

The property is furnished and decorated to a very high spec - it doesn't feel like a rental but a very comfortable home with lots of very tasteful decorative touches.

Lorraine, 3rd of June 2019

Lovely open plan house, well equipped and good location to explore Norfolk, The beds were comfortable and I loved how the house was open plan. 10 out of ten for cleanliness.

Helen, 25th of May 2019

Better than Expected. Arrived after hours as planned and the keys were waiting at the Hoste Arms as promised. Michaelmas is a tardis and has been renovated to the highest standard. During our visit the outside temperature was -5 but we were as warm as toast thanks to the underfloor heating and wood burner. The presentation was pristine with an abundance of quality towels kept hot on the towel radiators. Each morning at breakfast we had the opportunity to watch a beautiful barn owl hunting across the field behind. The outstanding Duck pub is in walking distance and the stunning coastline just moments away. Bliss!! 10 out of 10 for the cleanliness Nothing could have been better. The only thing to make it better would have been a longer stay! We had a wonderful stay thank you all for organising this on our behalf.

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.
