There's a pergola with outside table and chairs, a long lawned area and at the far end is a newly planted orchard.

It's only a short walk to the local pub, The Jolly Farmers, as well as a large pond which is home to a huge family of ducks. There are also some fantastic country and coastal walks to enjoy nearby.




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.

Guest reviews

We had a lovely stay at Oak Tree Cottage in North Creake - a good location for getting to all areas of North Norfolk. The cottage is beautifully designed and presented, well furnished, and very comfortable. Cosy and warm, with nice outside space as well. Lovely homemade chocolate brownies on arrival were delicious! Great location: ideal for Park run on Saturday at Holkham Hall, as well as re-visiting the Hall and Walled Gardens on Sunday. The cottage was lovely with everything of a high quality and standard and great attention to detail. Impressed with your website and properties and ease of booking.

The Whitefield's, 12th of June 2024

Truly outstanding cottage. The decor is wonderful and the quality of furniture, linen, towels, kitchenware is really superb. A very cosy feel to the cottage makes the cottage very special. Highly recommended (especially for the Chocolate Brownies and Red Wine). Wonderful weather for beach walks.

The Rose 's, 22nd of May 2024

Thank you for such a wonderful stay. The cottage was perfect. A very comfortable cottage with very high spec detail. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. The Brownies were delicious. A great location to be in and we are already recommending this to our friends and family. Thank you. Everything was perfect, thank you. We will definitely stay again. Beautiful bolt hole in a perfect location. We love Norfolk and stayed in many cottages over the years. This was certainly one of the best.

The Rice's, 8th of April 2024

We had a great stay at Oak Tree cottage and such a beautiful cottage. We loved the decor which felt extremely homely. Perfect location to explore the north coast. Loved the welcome brownies, they were delicious. Thank you for a great stay. Cosy cottage and lovely evenings by the fire. Our dog Monty loved the long garden, which is well kept considering all the wet weather we’ve had. beds super comfy and bedding a high quality.

The Holloways, 30th of March 2024

Lovely cosy and comfortable cottage in a good location. Easy to get to the coast. Wine, snacks and home made brownies was a nice touch. Would stay again. Bed was comfortable- slept really well.Well stocked kitchen - everything that we needed. It was quite rainy during our stay so was good to dry coats in the hall above the radiator. Nice touch to have the plug in torches to use to go to the loo in the night.Lovely quality towels, bedding, etc. Didn’t really make use of the garden but would be lovely in warm weather.

The Atkinson's, 14th of November 2023

The cottage was every thing we wished for and more. Super clean and with everything you would need (garden table and chairs and barbecue) the garden was well kept and very long and enclosed for our dog. They had a add on small conservatory with a dog gate into the kitchen which was great for a wet dog. There was a pub 5 door down with a blackboard advertising times for food service. So very central to alot of our haunts.We will be returning next year. Many thanks for a super week away we both needed. Very quiet and peaceful.

The Smith's, 12th of October 2023

We had a lovely stay at Oak Tree Cottage. A beautiful house with all the home comforts you need.
Beds were really comfortable with high quality linen.
We had lovely weather so took advantage of sitting in the garden each morning.
Nice welcome pack on arrival with home made brownies, wine, milk and crisps.
House in a good location for exploring, lots of great places within 20 minutes.
It is one of the nicest houses I have stayed in on holiday.

The McDonald's, 15th of September 2023

This cottage is a real gem. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped it's a great place for a relaxing break. Loved North Creake as good access to many Norfolk highlights. The garden of the cottage was so beautiful - a proper place to sit and enjoy the effort the owners have made with it. The decor inside was really tasteful.

The Stewart's, 15th of August 2023

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.
