Reviews

We had a lovely stay at Poppy Cottage for a week. We had our little border terrier with us and we all loved going for long coastal walks, as well as heading out by road to explore the surrounding area.

Mr Tariq Khan-Fontain,

We have had a wonderful stay in Poppy Cottage (once we got the heating working!). It is so well placed to visit Norfolk and take in some sea air. We would highly recommend 'Back to the Garden' in Letheringsett for brunch - it was brilliant!

The Limer Party,

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Poppy Cottage - a lovely escape and a perfect place to explore Norfolk. Windswept beaches, open fires and cosy pubs - perfect! A lovely little place to spend our first anniversary.

Mr & Mrs Scott,

Lovely little cottage within easy walk of Stiffkey Marshes and the local pub. Would absolutely recommend as a cosy bolthole, with fantastic walks and beaches - especially Holkham and Brancaster--and lots of pretty villages to explore nearby.

Ms Sarah Iredale,
