“Beautiful surroundings and very hospitable hosts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Not only is HollyHock House in a very private and beautiful setting (right by the sea),it is ideal for a stay if you are visiting North Norfolk. The rooms are very airy,clean and tea and coffee making facilities supplied (phew)! On arrival we were greeted warmly and had a welcome cup of tea,whilst sitting in the lovely garden, which is absolutely delightful, with it's variety of feathered friends including the hens and chicks.
Breakfast is excellent and we didn't need to eat for hours! Thanks to the hens fresh eggs every morning.
We would completely recommend this B and B and happily return.............

I visited Hollyhock House one October weekend with my 7 month old baby and we were made so at home by Cilla and Julie, I would heartily recommend their B&B to you.

The breakfast was wonderful (homemade pancakes and maple syrup, hot porridge with homemade fruit compotes, freshly baked bread, fresh eggs from the chooks in the garden...deee-lish!!!).

The accommodation was top notch, clean and warm and comfortable, right next to the sea and with a beautiful garden.

Just don't park on the grumpy neighbours' grass!

Thanks Cilla and Julie!

This is a lovely peaceful and relaxing B&B in a great location, made extra special by the friendly and welcoming owners. Fab veggie breakfast (also the coffee was just perfect!) Enjoyed watching the lovely chickens. Wonderful area for cycling, also went canadian canoeing. The Shire Horse sanctuary is only a few minutes away (very nice vegan cakes there). A visit to Clementines cafe/bistro is a must - delicious food and really friendly; they cater for veggie, vegan, gluten-free and meat eaters, and are within walking distance of the B&B. Also had an excellent meal at The Bank in Sheringham.

Set overlooking the sea in a private close. The owners cook a delicious and healthy breakfast using their own produce. Warm and comfortable. Lovely garden.

My partner and I stayed for a weekend over our annaversary and it was brilliant to find a vegetarian B&b so local to us, Julie And cilla were really friendly and made the weekend even better with a lovely breakfast each morning.

A short holiday at the Hollyhock B&B with my friends was a true success.We loved the way we were welcomed by Julie and Cillla, looked after and spoiled with the most delicious breackfasts and home made biscuits. Everything was so peacelul and all we could hear was the sea, the birds and the lovely hens. After lots of things to occupy our days we fell happily into very comfortable beds. When it was time to leave we felt as if we were leaving friends. Their wonderful sense of humor and the friendliness of the Norfolk people alone are a good reason to return.

As a regular visitor I can recommend the great location - beautiful sea view from my bedroom window. I love the veggie breakfast, complete with eggs fresh from the chickens! (I can't believe it's been 8 years since my first visit ... but I'm still blown away by the coastal walks, friendly locals, great seafood (especially the local crabs) and can recommend Hollyhock to anyone in search of peace and tranquility. I always leave feeling so much better and don't wants to go home.) Who says the English countryside has had its day - there is always so much to do ... visit Sherringham Park or a walk and visit the Folly or try Blickling Hall for a taste of local history. Never a dull moment - Julie & Cilla are so welcoming ...

Room Tip: The back double room has wonderful sea views.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hollyhock House is a detached house on the cliffs overlooking the sea. Situated in a private close with no street lights and no through traffic, it's the perfect place to take a break from the noise and stress of life. We have been established as a vegetarian B&B for 11 years. We offer a comfortable tranquil space in which to relax and unwind, and pride ourselves on the food we offer. The breakfasts are generous and wholesome using local organic produce whenever possible. Our allotment provides much of our fruit and vegetable requirements and in season supplies our guests with strawberries, raspberries, plums and damsons, and of course tomatoes. We make all of our own preserves and any surplus supplies are sold at the All Natural Company Health Food shop in Sheringham. We are able to provide breakfasts suitable for coeliac, gluten/wheat allergy and vegans.We are into our fourth year of hen keeping. Every year our trusty broody, Hattie, decides it's time to increase her family. At the moment we have 2 marans, 2 barred Plymouth rocks and 4 light Sussex chicks. We are more than happy to show people the ropes and hope our enthusiasm can be passed on. ... more   less
