Beautiful cottage - we couldn’t fault a thing. Comfortable, well equipped and decorated lovely. The garden was perfect, a good size, and loved by my two cockapoos. In a perfect location to reach all the local beaches and walking trails. Will definitely be back. The cottage was beautiful, garden perfect and ideal location for visiting all the local beaches and walking trails.

The Smith's, 6th of June 2024

New Cottage in Stanhoe was everything we hoped it would be. The weather during our stay was not sitting out beach weather so it was lovely to come back to such a lovely house. when there was sun the top of the garden in the afternoon was a good place to sit. The house was wonderfully equipped.However as always things like toilet rolls and washing up liquid were not really adequate. The highlights of our stay were really related to the lovely lunches we enjoyed at the eating places we knew from previous visits to Norfolk.

The Townsend's, 3rd of June 2024

The location and size of the property ( for an 4 bed) are the main plus points for us. The fridge freezer is also a good size.

The Thacker's, 21st of March 2024

This is the first time we have rented this cottage and I can say both my wife and I enjoyed our stay and felt comfortable and relaxed in the cottage.The garden was secure and ideal for our dog and being close to the Duck we enjoyed a short walk to have a fabulous meal.We shall certainly return.Comfortable, quiet, and clean house. Allowed us both to unwind and enjoy the peacefulness of Stanhoe. Also within a short drive of Hunstanton beach and other places we like to visit when in Norfolk.

The Cusson's, 21st of February 2024

We had a lovely week staying in The New Cottage. This was our first time staying in Stanhoe but I certainly hope it won’t be the last. Beautiful beaches visited in the area included Holkham, Brancaster and Holme next the Sea. We will certainly return to this beautiful part of the country. : The cottage was in a lovely quiet location. It had a real home from home feel about it. The secure, enclosed rear garden was ideal for our small dog. We have stayed in several Sowerby holiday cottages and this was certainly one of our favourites.

The Jane's, 25th of January 2024

As always a lovely comfortable cottage with everything we need, our third stay and we will definitely be coming again!

The Kempsters', 22nd of September 2023

We absolutely loved this cottage! Really spacious and with everything we needed. The garden is beautiful too and we enjoyed eating Al Fresco each day. Short drive to the beach and taking long walks along the sand at Brancaster. My mum and I had a wonderful stay and I’ve already booked for her to stay again next year!

The Gostling's, 1st of September 2023

This is a lovely quiet and private base to explore North Norfolk. The cottage is spacious and comfortable with good on site parking. We enjoy easy access to the coast for walking and birdwatching as well as enjoying the excellent local produce and pubs!

The Broughton's, 24th of August 2023

Our 2nd stay at this lovely cottage. It’s in a really nice location, quiet with a good field for walking the dog. Weather was amazing!.

The Peter's, 16th of August 2023

Another lovely stay. Great cottage, very comfortable and had everything we needed. The dogs loved the garden and it was so nice to see the rabbits of an evening. Very nicely located, close enough to the coast but away from the busier areas.

The Swailes, 12th of May 2023

Lovely as always! Our third stay and we are very comfortable and relaxed here. The layout works really well for our family.

The Peters, 7th of April 2023

Another lovely stay at this cottage and although it's been 3 years since we last visited everything was just as good, if not better, than our previous stays here. Would definitely recommend this property and also the location as Stanhoe is a really nice village close to Burnham Market and all the wonderful Norfolk beaches The large television and fridge/freezer which have both been changed since our last stay at New Cottage were a nice surprise!

The Copson's, 6th of April 2023

We again enjoyed our stay in this comfortable cottage which met all our needs. Good heating system much needed in March.Comfortable sitting room and secure garden for the two small dogs. Rabbits in the garden were kept safe and the dogs amused.

The Molyneux's, 29th of March 2023

The cottage is so convenient to the coast & countryside walking but good to stay in and be cosy with the fire during the winter days & eves.

It is within walking distance of our favourite pub/restaurant The Duck Inn.

Well placed to visit Burnham Market and all surrounding villages.

The Moss's, 27th of February 2023

A lovely dog friendly cottage ,set in a quiet location in North Norfolk, close to brancaster beach. We have stayed in this cottage many times and find it really comfortable and perfect location as we have friends who live nearby.

We really enjoyed our stay. Loved the cleanliness and the smart decor, very homely feel. We loved the house, lovely inside and wonderful location opposite the field, perfect for our dog and children to run off some energy. We would very much like to rebook another weekend.

The Cleaver Family, 30th of April 2021

The New Cottage was as we expected. we liked the cleanliness 10 out of 10. I was a little apprehensive about coming on holiday and staying in a cottage where lots of other people had. been but I needn’t have worried. It was spotless like walking into a brand new property. We would stay here again!

Jolly Sailors pub great for families and dogs. Brancaster Staithe good for crabbing.

Linda, Keith, Jonah, Jacob and Honey the dog, 24th of August 2018

We have stayed here several times and very much enjoy it. We like The Duck Inn and the fact that we can walk our dog around the field at the front of the cottage. The cottage itself is a relaxed and comfortable place to stay.

Davies party, 20th of July 2018

We had a fantastic break in your lovely holiday home. We went to Wells, Holkham and Burnham Market. We will definately come back again. Would recommend hiring bikes out at Holkham HAll, great for adults and children.

Highlights of the week:
Pensthorpe - wonderful outdoor play area
The Crown at Wells - fabulous food and service
Holkham - Kayaking, cycling and cricket watching
Holkham and Holme beaches - body boarding and channel digging.

The Hanner family, 11th of August 2017

We live in Cyprus but visit the area several weeks in the year as I have family in Burnham Thorpe - we always rent cottages for our stay, and to date this is the best cottage that we have found. We normally book for 4 weeks over the Christmas period, and very sad that this cottage is not available.

Howard Party, 14th of July 2017

A totally glourious week spent in your lovely house. Fabulous weather and beaches, what a joy!

Sorry to be leaving, hope to return

Sandra and Raymond, 21st of April 2017

We have had a wonderful week in Norfolk in this beautiful Cottage, so comfortable and so warm. Everything has been so very well though out to make your guests stay as comfortable as possible so very well done.

Certainly recommend the Duck Inn, great food.
Thank you very much.

Caroline & Andy, 4th of March 2017

We really enjoyed The New Cottage and got to see the Local Barn Owl of the field in front of the house three times!!!

The best bits were that the cottage was dog friendly, spacious, warm and in a great location. It was very clean and exceeded our expectations.
