The Coach a House is a spacious apartment above car ports on the owners property, one of the bays being for guests use, though it was too small for our 4x4. It's in two halves, one part having the main staircase up from the parking bay, kitchenette and lounge and the other part being the main bedroom, bathroom and emergency staircase. There are guards available for the stairs in case of young children.
The hosts were lovely and very welcoming, as were the family of blackbirds with young just fledging. The welcome gifts were a nice touch. There was a lot of bird life in the pleasant garden and the property is close to the various nature reserves on the Norfolk Coast as well as Sandringham.
We only used the kitchen area to make 'continental' breakfasts, drinks and snacks but there was more enough facilities, utensils, pots and pans to cook full meals. We ate out and got take always during our stay with there being a couple of Chinese places nearby and a chip shop on the next corner. The village is well appointed including a good CoOp supermarket and Spar a short stroll away with larger supermarkets within a short drive.
There were a few niggles - the hot water was temperamental and it was hard to fill the fairly small bath, which also lacked a shower curtain, whilst the floor tile grout kept coming up. The TV signal kept going with just a few channels available. The broadband/WiFi was very slow and kept dropping out. It was OK for a few emails but no good for streaming or Skype etc. Seemed to be mainly a TalkTalk problem. There was a DVD player and it would be worth taking a few discs/films. There were various books and other material to read.
We enjoyed our stay overall and it was a general relaxing place to stay. The storage heaters and electric fire would make it cosy in winter whilst the roof vent Windows gave plenty of ventilation.
My wife & I stayed at The Coach House for a three day break in the middle of May and we were delighted with our choice. It was everything we wanted it to be, indeed the rooms were larger than the pictures suggest. It was comfortable, well equipped, quiet and well placed for the many places we wanted to visit, especially Sandringham. Dersingham itself was a pleasant surprise, larger than we had expected and well served by a range of local outlets, especially the Garden Centre. Thank you to Mandy and Doug for making us so welcome.

Easy to book and value for money. Great village location, close to shops and pubs and getting to the beach! Mandy and family were the perfect hosts. The apartment is modern and very clean and has everything you need & so spacious and bonus is its dog friendly with a lovely garden!!! We loved it and will be booking again
Perfect retreat . Have stayed twice and will do so again. Home away from home.Very well equipped with every amenity one needs.
First time booking the Coach House in Dersingham and what a find!
It was very spacious and comfortable and in an ideal position for visiting family across the road. Also a great base for visiting Sandringham (around 2 miles) and Hunstanton (around 6 miles). Mandy our host was very thorough in explaining everything about the property.
Internet was very slow but it didn't spoil our stay.
Would we stay here again? Yes, without a doubt and we plan on coming back later in the year.
We stayed here for a few nights to meet up with family locally. The accommodation, above the barn, was fantastic, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable & quite a bit different from most other places. Next time we're in this area, this is where we'll want to stay.
