“A fantastically equipped cottage in an idyllic location..”
Reviewed 13 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

A fantastically equipped cottage in an idyllic location, with some thoughtful touches (hand picked tomatoes) putting the icing on the cake! It provides easy access to any numbers of activities in North Norfolk but also a peaceful haven for those who want to get away from it all. A large garden which almost encroaches into the surrounding countryside is an added bonus, as are the beautiful sunsets through the front window - we look forward to coming back some day..

“Lovely relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Lovely well equipped cottage. Peaceful surroundings with everything you might need or want within easy reach. The cottage has a safe garden for children and a conservatory where the adults can relax and watch the children play.

“A complete delight”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This cottage – a two-bedroom semi-detached – is a complete delight.

It has recently been refurbished, tastefully and to a high standard, so everything is smart and fresh and it has all mod cons. But little quirky touches give it a real cottage feel and a great ambience. A real home from home with everything you need. Oh, and it’s spotlessly clean.

The location is properly rural, with views over fields and open country on all sides.Very peaceful and relaxing. You can sit in the conservatory and watch the birds, and children can play in the large garden. Yet it’s only a ten-minute drive into Fakenham, with its restaurants, pubs, shops and supermarkets.

It’s a great base for seeing North Norfolk. We stayed two weeks and did the entire north coast, from King’s Lynn in the west to Cromer in the east. The beaches are amazing. We also visited several National Trust properties and the RSPB reserve at Titchwell Marsh.

Just one small note of caution. The stairs are a little steep – though there’s a loo on the ground floor, so you’re not up and down them all the time – and to use the shower you have to step over the side of the bath. We’re getting on in years and neither of us had any problem. But if you tend to struggle a bit, you should at least be aware.

However, if you’re reasonably mobile you won’t do better than Southmill Cottage. If you plan to holiday in North Norfolk, you should book it now.
