“Exceptional home from home.”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I have to hand it to the owner, this property is an absolute gem! From the very first sweep into the driveway I was captivated by its tranquility, pretty facade and downright chocolate box kerb appeal. It's just what I needed after a few busy months in the City (London). The two log burners were on all the time and the secure garden meant that my dog could roam freely without concern. Backing onto the church was also a great part of the magic this place binds you with. It's not at all creepy. The quality shines throughout. The bed (I only used one of the five) was dressed in the finest of linen and the complimentary toiletries were a lovely touch too. The beautiful white towels were fresh and the rain shower woke me up after a deep long slumber. Location-wise, it is superb. Don't bother driving your car to the Quayside. It costs £3 to park and is literally a stones through away - maps make it look farther. A great place to unwind.

“Absolutely beautiful house - didn't want to leave”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Church Cottage is just as beautiful as it looks in the pictures and very well appointed, clean and comfortable. We stayed at the house for a long weekend to attend a wedding locally, as seven adults we had plenty of sociable space and really couldn't fault the house at all. It is one of the most stunning houses I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. We loved the luxury bed linens, fluffy bath towels and miniature 'The White Company' amenities placed in each bedroom. It was also lovely to arrive after a long drive from London to find fresh milk in the fridge and all sorts of teas and coffees to choose from. Booking through Louise was a really pleasant, hassle free, helpful and friendly experience. We had one small problem while we were there figuring out how to work the hot water and after a late night email to Louise, I woke to a text, email and a plumber on the way. After the flick of a switch all was sorted and the plumber was cancelled. We felt very well taken care of.
The pub opposite is lovely with fantastic seafood dishes, be sure to make a reservation and don't expect to eat after 9pm as the kitchen closes.
All in all Church Cottage is thoroughly recommended - Thank you for having us!

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in August 2014

When my daughter announced she was getting married at Morston Church I began looking for somewhere for the bridal party to stay and couldn't believe my look when I came across Church Cottage. From the start Louise the friendly owner went out of her way to accommodate us and make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Church Cottage more than met our needs. It is tastefully decorated with lots of homely touches that make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The cottage is well proportioned with two sitting rooms and the bedrooms have extremely comfortable beds with quality bedlinen. It is also very well equipped - there really wasn't anything we couldn't find. On this occasion we couldn't take advantage of all Church Cottage has to offer but we did make use of the lovely garden that overlooks the church and was perfect for entertaining.
I have spent many holidays in North Norfolk but think Morston and the surrounding area in particular has much to offer with endless walking opportunities, good and varied places to eat and numerous visitor attractions. Our time at Church Cottage was over all too quickly- we wanted somewhere special to stay and it turned out to be perfect!

“A very comfortable home from home for a family Christmas”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We are currently staying in Church Cottage, and it has been lovely. The cottage is equipped to an exceptionally high standard, and it is a cosy place in the depth of winter. We have enjoyed using the fireplace and the wood burner, and had our son-in-law's family over for lunch etc. on Christmas Day. They live nearby, which was partly why we chose Church Cottage.
Louise, the owner was very helpful at all times, and we feel it really matters to her that people enjoy her home.
It is positioned next door to The Anchor, a very nice pub to have a meal out in. The house overlooks the church and churchyard, and it is a delight to wake up and see the birds in the garden and look at the rising sun or the frost on the garden and fields in the distance.
The beds are very comfortable, and have high quality bedlinen, the kitchen is very well equipped and there is ample crockery and cutlery to entertain friends and family.
We love our time here and are thrilled to have come.

Liked best: Being allowed to decorate the house with a Christmas tree etc. and finding ample logs and tea lights.
Liked least: The fact that parking is ample but it can be difficult to get out because of the way the patrons of The Anchor park their cars.

“Perfect cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We've just spent an idyllic week at Church Cottage in Morston. The house is well equipped with many little extras added to make it particularly welcoming when you arrive. The house is a very comfortable place to stay - ideal as a base for touring around and comfortable on the one wet day that we had.

It's handily placed next to the Anchor Inn which is not only a good pub serving good pub but has an excellent sensibly priced restaurant providing a limited menu but with enough choice for most tastes.

The cottage is in walking distance of Morston Quay which offers nice walks to Stiffkey and Blakeney. Further afield, though still not far, are other gems like Holkham (the Hall and the Beach) and Cley Next The Sea.

Each village has its own character and will not disappoint. We are keen walkers and dragged our dogs (hardly!) round many miles of pleasant countryside. This really is an ideal spot if you like walking, nice villages, a fascinating coastline and wildlife (hares, many migrating birds etc.).

The owner of the cottage is also nice to deal with making Church Cottage a perfect week for us. Going back to work is not so good!

“Cozy comfort”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Church cottage is ideally situated to enjoy the gorgeous North Norfolk coast. The house is well appointed and comfortable. We as a family of five love it, as it works really well for us. Could probably do with an extra bathroom if one was super picky. Owners are fab and very helpful. Wonderful Anchor pub nearby and super beach walks.

Thank you for your review - and I totally agree in that we really do need another shower or bathroom. Planning permission has been granted to do exactly that and when the funding is in place the work will be done. I so look forward to being able to have more than one bathroom at Church Cottage!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have stayed several times at Church Cottage at various times of year , every time we return it is always as I remember it , perfect in every aspect . The location is fantastic with all that Norfolk has to offer on your doorstep . A short walk to the sea , a drive for a bit of a shop in Holt or 30 second amble to the pub next door ( very welcoming and delicious food )
The cottage itself is wonderful , plenty of space for everyone , full of character and delightfully decorated . The owner's attention to detail is outstanding , always spotless , no chipped nor mismatched crockery ,all the kitchen equipment you require and the beds and bedlinen are sublime . Mustn't forget the gorgeous garden , great for the kids to play in , leisurely lunches , or enjoying a sundowner . It is always a joy to stay !
