We had a beautiful holiday at Periwinkle cottage. The place was spotless and there was plenty of room for everyone.
The position of the cottage could not have been better: 5 minutes from the beach and 30 seconds from the pub.
The neighbour, who is also the housekeeper, was lovely. Very friendly and helpful. One day she came round with a plate of jam tarts for the children. Lovely Norfolk hospitality.
I would recommend Periwinkle to anyone wanting a perfect, tranquil holiday on the Norfolk coast.

“Fourth stay in Periwinkle just as good as the first”

We have just enjoyed our fourth holiday in Periwinkle Cottage. The cottage conveniently suits a large family, having bathroom, shower room and an upstairs toilet - no queueing in the morning. The kitchen is well equiped for eight people with numerous cooking and serving utensils and dishes. The enclosed rear garden is ideal for children and there is a playing field around the corner. The beach is only a short walk away and there are plenty of local walks (walk along the valley between the sand dunes to Hemsby for example). Village shops are two minutes walk away. The next door neigbour, who looks after the house for the owner, is very helpful when required, and ensures that you have everything that you need without being intrusive. We can certainly recommend Periwinkle for a family holiday.

“Rude neighbour!”

Lovely, but it's a reasonably small cottage. House was in good order, although bathrooms could have been a little cleaner.

Good kitchen and easily coped with 9 of us, although not a huge amount of storage. TV is set to free view and there a good selection of dvd's available.

Excellent location and 5 minute walk to the beach. Local pub is a 10 metres away and the staff are very friendly. Food was excellent, although they can get busy. Thoroughly recommend the chilli con carnie.......

Lots of things to do nearby Bewilderwood (25 mins) Yarmouth Racing (20 mins) and Norfolk Broads (35 mins).

Just a shame that the busy body neighbour next door is also the housekeeper. Sadly one of the rudest people I've ever met. You would arrive back in your car and she would be waiting to jump on you for whatever reason seemed to be topic of the day. Twice I had to ask her not to speak to me like I was a dog. Just left a bad taste in our mouth as her attention was continues for very little reason.

We would recommend staying here, but be warned about a rude Mrs 'Bucket'.......

A beautiful spacious well equipped cottage in a small friendly village which has a Post Office, Shop and Pub, serving good food. There is a lovely big sandy beach within five minutes walk with sand dunes for dogs to run in. The beach cafe serves hot and cold food. There are very many varied and interesting places to visit in the area. We were lucky enough to see the Storks nesting at nearby Thursby. Would definitely go back and book the cottage again as there is still so much more to see.

Excellent accommodation, in good taste. Felt like home immediately. Nice gastro pub a few steps away. Hard though to find Petrol, so make sure you are well and truly tanked up before arriving here.

Would visit again.
