The beautiful and well-appointed cottage, in the lee of the main house, is in a lovely setting overlooking a meadow, horses and windmill. Having access to the main garden was also a delight all the way to the River Burn. One of the nicest beaches on the North Norfolk coast, beyond Burnham Overy Staithe, is just 2.5 miles walk from the cottage and the delightful gastropub, The Nelson, and the village shop are only 10 mins walk down the road. The cottage, on the hourly 36 bus route, is well-located not just for the Burnhams, Nelson’s birthplace and Holkham Hall, but also Brancaster, Bleakney, the Broads and more. We really enjoyed our stay, including our little dog. Thank you.
A lovely cottage that has all the amenities - full kitchen, outside space and comfortable beds - in a quiet rural location but within easy reach of the beaches at Wells, Holkham, Brancaster, and shopping in nearby Burnham Market and Deepdale, breakfast, lunches and suppers at dog-friendly Thornham Deli, Creake Barns and Eric’s fish and chips.
Our son loved the downstairs bedroom and we loved the upstairs space with views across the fields. We had a small dog with us and so the courtyard was a great space for us, we brought a long lead so that he was secure.
We didn’t use the owners’ garden so as not to intrude on their privacy, but it was kindly offered.
Other thoughtful touches were the umbrella, and supply of kitchen essentials including teabags and condiments, tea towels, foil and bin bags.
Evenings in the sitting room looking out over the fields, sea mist meant chilly outdoors but the central heating kept us cosy inside. A lovely stay, and highly recommended.
My husband and I stayed at Pomfrets cottage with our 2 kids and dog. We really enjoyed our stay here. Promfrets is clean and cosy a it’s location is great with lovely views of wildlife. There are lovely walks near by and it’s a good walking distance to Burnham Market.
Karen was really accommodating in that she let us arrive early and check out late, which was really helpful when you have 2 kids and a dog to pack up!
The main bed is really comfy and has a good shower and a well equipped kitchen. There is an enclosed courtyard out the front of the cottage which is great if you are bringing a dog.
Only down points would be that the cottage is advertised as suitable for under 5’s but there is no high chair which would have been really handy as we don’t have a travel high chair (or room in the car to pack one) so had to go without. (There is a travel cot). Also it would have been nice to have some basic suplies on arrival such as tea/coffee, and milk as this is what we’ve been used to with previous stays. Just minor points though as this is a great little cottage and would definitely recommend for a relaxing, quiet, family break.
Pomfrets Cottage is set in a great location just on the edge of Burnham Market.
The cottage is to a high standard with lovely views to the rear over open country side where you can watch the bats and owls in the evening.
I booked this cottage at the very last minute and the owner was a joy from the moment I first contacted her!
I planned the surprise as a weekend away for Fathers Day for my husband. It really was a wonderful place to stay!! I took my two boys who are five and two years old and my nephew who is 16 and they absolutely loved the place too!! They especially loved the horses in the field at the back of the cottage. It was a scorching weekend with temperatures hitting 30 degrees but thank goodness the cottage is very cool downstairs so the boys were fine through the night. However, upstairs was uncomfortably hot.
Everything else was great and Burnham Market is a beautiful town! We went to Hunstanton Beach on the first day before driving to the cottage for our first night. We then went to Well-Next-The-Sea on the second day which was Fathers Day. An amazing weekend of beautiful Norfolk countryside and beaches!! The cottage is perfectly placed for this.
Thanks again for a great stay Karen xx :)
Comfortable in every way the highlight of this cottage is a lovely upstairs sitting room in which we spent happy evenings watching the barn owl hunt in the open field. The owners are helpful, everything works and the location is excellent.
