    We loved our stay at the cottage. Very cosy and comfortable. The surrounding area is a stunning and we would highly recommend Stiffkey Stores for a morning a coffee and pastry. We loved Holkham Nature Reserve, The Harnser at Cley and our boat trip with Temple's Seal Trips. Beautiful weather all week too!
