Harpley is a small inland village which dates to the time of Domesday Book, if not earlier, and the name probably refers to salt-panning (from the 'salt-harp', a filter used in salt manufacture in medieval times). Northwest of the village are remains of Bronze Age round barrows, and a Neolithic long barrow stands on Harpley Common.

The historic church of St Lawrence boasts a lovely angel roof, with a restored 14th-century rood screen and lovely carved wooden pews from 1638. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the beautifully carved south door, decorated with a panoply of figures of saints, Tudor roses, the Four Latin Doctors, crockets, and religious symbols within an arrangement of decorative niches. The effect is simply stunning.

The church itself is primarily 13th century and has an excellent example of 14th-century stained glass in the east window of the south aisle. One curiosity is that several French nobles are buried in the churchyard. They settled here after escaping from the French Revolution.

There's a superb historic local pub, The Rose & Crown, with a fantastic atmosphere and a great, seasonal menu that’s regularly changed.

Guest reviews

As bird watchers, we really enjoyed Sculthorpe Moor Hawk and Owl Nature Reserve and the proximity to the North Norfolk coast. We enjoyed our second stay at Mill View and love the location.

The Manger's, 20th of June 2024

Mill View is a cosy cottage with plenty of out door space and nice walks around the village. Harpley is well located for Sandringham, Market Burnham, Swaffham and Wells-next-the Sea. Houghton Hall is on the doorstep as well the pretty village of Great Massingham which is worth visiting to watch the ducks in the pond and to pick up supplies in the village store. so lots to do within 30 mins drive.
Mill View is comfortable and is well equipped with everything you need and is lovely and peaceful for sleeping well. Good wifi for browsing places to visit etc.

Christine, 13th of October 2023

A well planned cottage for 2 or 4 people. Clean, tidy and comfortable it has stayed in our memory as a nice place to stay. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and there are pleasant villages nearby. We easily reached the North coast to do some birding and it only took a short time to get to Holt for a railway ride. We discovered a beautiful station renovation not far away on a closed line and there was plenty of bird life.

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.
