An enjoyable and comfortable stay as cottage both cosy and extremely well equipped. Weather very kind to us so we made the most of our surroundings visiting Cromer, Wells, Sheringham and local coast walks. The courtyard was a real sun trap although small, but had the weather been disappointing the cottage was pleasant and with open fire should the need arise in winter months! The village shop was quaint and characteristic. We would certainly consider returning in the future.

“Perfect cottage in a the perfect location”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a beautiful cottage in the village of Stiffkey. Location wise it cant be beaten, ideally located for Wells, Holkham, Cley and further south down the coast to Cromer & Sheringham. The cottage has been brilliantly extended to offer a great open plan kitchen and diner with bifold doors on to the small yard area ( a great sun trap!). The accommodation is well presented with everything you could need including wifi, DVD player ( fab selection of DVDs too!) dishwasher and good TV. Stiffkey has a great pub and village stores and is perfect for walking through the marshes to either Wells or Cley and then getting the Coasthopper back to Stiffkey. A great spot for a truly relaxing break.

“Idyllic cottage.”
Reviewed April 18, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage is situated in a beautiful village with a fab shop and a great pub. The cottage was smart, cosy and had everything you could need to function away from home. We also thoroughly appreciated the information provided prior to the stay .

“More wonderful birding!”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Our second visit and it was even better than the first. A lovely cottage, very well equipped and the open coal fire was a joy! So close to Stiffkey Marshes and there were more birds than last year! Blakeney Marshes are within easy reach and also RSPB Titchwell. Lots of geese and a dozen marsh harriers circling together at Titchwell as well as numerous ducks and waders and a barn owl. A magic week!

“Cosy Retreat”
Reviewed November 26, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here for a long weekend in Nov and although the weather wasn't brilliant we had a lovely stay . The cottage is a lovely cosy place to retreat back to at the end of the day with a lovely open fire to add to the atmosphere. The kitchen is beautiful & well equipped with everything you could possibly need , please be aware the stairs are VERY steep . Parking is on the road side away from the property so I would advise taking a torch , we forgot to take one & the drive way to the property after parking is absolutely pitch black until you get closer to the property when the security lighting then comes on . We had no problems with parking but on 2 nights we took the last parking space on the roadside so maybe a problem in the summer months when surrounding cottages are also booked . Overall lovely little place to stay & enjoy

“Fantastic cottage. Great location.”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We really enjoyed Lavender Cottage. It is a lovely old building with loads of character, but has been beautifully modernised to create a perfect holiday cottage. It is also in an excellent location near the north Norfolk coast; perfect for visiting Blakeney, Holkham, Wells and the rest of the heritage coast. Thank you very much Natasha.

Liked best: Characterful cottage in beautiful location.

“Cosy cottage”
Reviewed April 7, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Plus side: Easy to find, good location for all the sites in North Norfolk, kitchen area well equipped and lots of nice little homely touches to make it feel like a home away from home. The owner has gone to great lengths here. Lots of herbs and spices provided to flavour your home cooked meals. Stiffkey is a nice little village.
Niggles: parking not outside the cottage but you can load and unload outside so overall a minor point. Main bedroom and lounge facing road and was a little on the noisy side at times. Very steep stairs so take extra care with very young children.
Overall we'd recommend a stay here if you want to sample a taste of Norfolk life.
