East Anglia cottages

Our verdict:

East Anglia houses a trilogy of pleasures: seaside, countryside and Broads-side. Its long coastline offers fine sandy beaches and birdwatching. The interior has market towns and flinty rural churches built on the proceeds of the medieval wool trade. And the huge patchwork of the Broads is a boater's paradise. Explore from a cosy cottage or stately manor house, yours for the weekend.

Rural Retreats says

Whether you’re looking for a cosy escape in a cottage for two, a house on the beach or a stately family pile for the weekend, we offer a huge range of options in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Owl Barn, is a stunning one-bedroom apartment set in a stunning Manor House, while The Link is a former lighthouse keeper’s cottage for two, a short walk along the coast from Cromer, and right next door to the Royal Cromer Golf Course.

For larger groups, we offer houses sleeping from four up to 20 people. Beach lovers will find Beachcomber impossible to resist. It’s a two minute walk from Old Hunstanton beach (popular with kite-surfers) and has a contemporary, light and airy style with four large bedrooms. You can even pay a supplement to rent your own beach hut.

Our extensive knowledge of each of the properties we feature lets us help you find your perfect match. You can start your break on any day of the week (subject to availability) and we’ll make sure there’s a welcome hamper, a bottle of wine in the fridge, a basket of logs, fresh towels and quality toiletries waiting for you. Dogs are allowed at some of our properties too, so you don’t need to worry about finding kennels.
