Guest Reviews

A wonderful place to ring in the New Year! The Old School House is beautiful, cosy and very well equipped. We loved exploring the beaches at Burnham Overy Staithe and wandering through Burnham Market and admiring the gorgeous Norfolk sky.

Peers - 28/12/2021

A WOW as we entered this lovely cottage. Very comfortable - could have stayed for much longer. Thank you for your welcome pack and the other thoughtful touches.

Rawlins - 26/11/2021

What an amazing break!
Everything in your beautiful home is perfect.
There isn't one detail that has not been thought of, from the amazingly equipped kitchen to the fabulous towels and linen. We have had the best stay ever and we cannot wait to return. Thank you

Cohen - 08/11/2021

This is one of the best cottages we have ever been to! Location is great, the house is lovely and all the little touches around the house are absolutely lovely. Milk, butter, bread, eggs and alcohol provided on day 1 - Fantastic!
You can tell that the hosts have thought of everything. We had a lovely stay/mini honeymoon. Would highly recommend.
P.S. Food around here is also fantastic, would recommend Number 29, The White Horse, The Gin Trap, The Hosts and The Orange Tree (watch out, big portions!)

Little - 01/11/2021

Great property - better than expected - photos don't do it justice. Great sized communal living area - so if weather bad there was plenty of room for all of us. There was more provisions there than in most holiday homes. Hopefully can come back to stay again!

Spice - 10/09/2021

What a gorgeous house! This is our second visit to Burnham Market and our first to this house. We would already like to come back. Everything possible for a wonderful stay is provided, even a pair of rubber gloves to wash up with which I usually bring! Thank you.

Burnham Market

Location

A delightful Georgian village which is situated a stones throw away from the glorious North Norfolk coastline and is the largest of the seven Burnham villages. At its centre is a large village green surrounded by striking Queen Anne and Georgian buildings, with two churches that lie at each end of its broad main street. 
Unlike many other English towns which are dominated by multiples, Burnham Market has a traditional post office, butcher, hardware shop, fish shop and chemist for all the necessities of everyday life, but there are also over 30 highly original independent and specialist shops, selling a wide range of exciting deli products, vibrant and stylish accessories for home and garden, smart clothes shops, and books old and new. There are some great places to eat, including the renowned Hoste Arms which is a 17th Century old coaching house, the stylish No Twenty 9 bar and restaurant and Socius in Foundry Field. As a result Burnham Market attracts many celebrities and cosmopolitan visitors and is vibrant and bustling in the holiday periods, earning the nickname Chelsea-on-Sea. There is an annual August craft fair and in November the picturesque Christmas lights are turned on, making the village the perfect place to visit for Christmas shopping.
