We managed to time our short break in Happisburgh with the arrival of the 'Beast from the East'. All was well, we had a warm welcome from Liz and the jug of daffodils on the table in the large window reminded us that Spring really was on the way.
Having previously spent a holiday in Albion cottage, we knew that the Gig House would have all amenities and be spotlessly clean. We were snowed in for one day but there was everything we needed in the cottage and the underfloor heating and the wood burner kept us warm. Liz had thought of everything and the wellies and umbrella came in very handy! We were able to walk to the little shop/post office in the village, which also seemed to provide everything - and the prices were so reasonable. We were also thankful for the fact that the Hill House Inn was only 3 or 4 minutes walk away and we enjoyed two excellent evening meals there by their roaring fire.
Liz and Robert were very helpful on the day we had to travel home and, as they didn't have any bookings for two days, told us we could stay on as long as we liked. But as the weather didn't look like getting any better, we decided to try for home and thankfully, got there safely.
This three-day escape turned into quite an adventure but if you have to get snowed in, the Gig House isn't a bad place to be!
A beautiful place in the grounds of the owners home. A lovely cream tea was left for us on arrival which was delicious and welcoming. Liz, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. The cottage is well kept and clean. Would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone. It's a short walk to the beautiful sandy beaches which stretch for miles in both directions. Great walks from the cottage.
Beautiful quaint cottage, so pretty, so well equiped owners lovey and welcoming, we had homemade scones jam and cream waiting on our arrival, milk in the fridge, we are here now so much to see around the area definetley worth a visit
We stayed for 4 nights in July and ideal base location for cycling around Norfolk. Cottage quaint and had everything we needed and scones on arrival were lovely, thanks.
Such a lovely stay. So welcoming, the cottage is absolutely beautiful. Really well equipped- had everything we needed and more. Gorgeous setting.. only a 5 min stroll to the beach but feels like we were in the middle of the countryside. Quiet and quaint. Thank you so much for a lovely weekend - wish it was longer! Would definitely come back and HIGHLY recommend to others.
We had a great time here at May Bank Holiday earlier this year, what a lovely place, had everything you would need and a parking space. So close to everything, the local pub serves a great Sunday lunch and some very palatable wines - we would heartily recommend this place and will definitely return.
Tucked away done a small lane in the midst of the beautiful Norfolk countryside is where you'll find The Gig House. A very warm welcome awaited us, with homemade scones, clotted cream and jam. The house was just perfect for our weekend break. It had everything we needed. The beach is a 5 minute stroll away and we enjoyed lovely walks along the cliff top and beach with our two dogs. The owner was very friendly as was everyone else we met on our break. We would definitely love to go back again.
