This deceptively spacious and charming two bedroom cottage has been newly renovated to a high standard, yet still retains some original features such as latch doors and exposed beams. It is situated in a peaceful village in rural countryside close to the popular market town of Holt and the beautiful north Norfolk coastline. Light and airy throughout, the open plan ‘Scandinavian’ style ground floor accommodation offers a lovely social space and comfortable area in which to relax and unwind. Fitted with a wood burner, the sitting area is the perfect place to curl up with a book and warm your toes on a cold winter’s day. For sunny mornings the bench overlooking open meadows is an idyllic spot to enjoy your morning coffee. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a large farmhouse table at which to enjoy a meal or to lay the maps on whilst making holiday plans. On the first floor is the master bedroom with a double bed. The second bedroom features a specially designed bunk bed made by local carpenters. There is a further single bed in this room. All in all this property is a great base for a lovely holiday in Norfolk. Shop/Pub: 2 miles

Little Barningham is a quaint village just 6 miles inland from the popular market town of Holt where there is a good range of shops and facilities. There is plenty of open countryside for walking, or to enjoy cycling the many quiet lanes in the area. In neighbouring Edgefield there is a good pub serving locally sourced food and drink. The cathedral city of Norwich is twenty miles away and is rich in history and culture. The beautiful north Norfolk coast is a short car journey away, explore the delightful traditional seaside towns and stunning beaches. For wildlife lovers the coast has plenty of places to spot birds and interesting wildlife – take a boat trip from Morston to Blakeney Point to see seals basking in their natural habitat or visit the Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre at Cley Marshes where there are bird hides and a good café with views over the reserve so you can sit and bird watch with a cup of something in hand!


Fantastic stay in a gorgeous, comfortable cottage! Great beds! (Never a guaranteed thing in a holiday let). Our favourite places? Canoeing The Broads with the Canoe Man in Wroxham, Overstrand beach, Cromer Pier for crabbing and cycling at Blickling Hall and Sheringham Estate. We love Norfolk.

Mrs P,

We have really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for making the cottage great from a self-catering perspective but maintaining a lovely homely feel. Lovely views, some interesting wildlife, a friendly neighbour and all in all a great base to explore North Norfolk. We really hope to be back.

Emma L,

We have had an amazing week's stay at Aurora Cottage. The cottage is in a beautiful spot and we have thoroughly enjoyed watching the wildlife from the cottage. We particularly enjoyed the beach at Bacton/Walcott which was lovely and great for the kids. We also saw some seals while swimming at Cromer and Bacton. Sad to be leaving such a lovely cottage.

Richard P,

We had a lovely stay in Aurora this week. This was also the first time we had a feel to stay in a home instead of a holiday let. You can feel that the house is loved by its owners. It was a delight staying here and we will certainly return next year.

Peter K,

The main thing is that the hares, muntjak deer, partridges and oyster catcher are all doing fine as far as we can see! Entertainment has reached its zenith with 6 hares and one deer at twilight. Tawny owl just joined the cast at twilight. Right outside bedroom window. Is there a surcharge for such things?

Brian N,

We spent five lovely days in this very cosy cottage. We are a family with 3 little children (5, 3 and 1 year old) and the size of the house was perfect for us. We enjoy the countryside way of life - the fields, the pheasants and the deer! We had the opportunity to discover Norwich, Blickling Hall and seals. We did not know anything about the region before coming but I have to say that it is very charming. We will recommend it.

The Caire Party,

Just to say thank you for sharing your lovely cottage for the weekend. It has been very comfortable and well appointed and we've really enjoyed our time here. We have been walking at both Felbrigg and Blickling as well as seeing the fireworks in Norwich. Planing on visiting the beach on the way home. Thank you once again, it has been a lovely few days.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for the goodies and flowers the owner kindly left. We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. Visited Holkham Hall for the Halloween Experience. We enjoyed it very much - so many things arranged for the visitor. We ate at the King's Head at Letheringsett which was good and must try again.

The Mattham Family,

A truly beautiful, cosy cottage that we loved! So quiet and peaceful! Visits to our favourite beach at Overstrand have been many - great for surfing. Holkham Hall and beach were great too. Circus at Cromer was amazing! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

The Temple Family,

We've had a fantastic time relaxing in Aurora Cottage and enjoying touring around the beautiful Norfolk countryside. The wonderful view from the back windows is an outstanding picture. We highly recommend Pensthorpe Natural Park - it's a great place for family outings with its childrens' trails, park, animal enclosures and lots of nature! The sandy beaches at Mundesley and Sheringham are also epic! We had lots of fun at the tropical swimming pool and we have enjoyed our stay immensely.

The Akehurst Family,

What a cosy, relaxing peaceful place to stay - thank you so much. In our few days we took a boat on the Broads, an evening on Cromer Pier (with No1 fish & chips of course!) and a day on Wells beach. Your guest book is so helpful and detailed - we were very grateful for it - and the cottage is beautiful and very comfortable. You have thought of everything and so we didn't feel we were missing anything. We would love to come back. Thank you.
