Our wish list


One of the first tasks we set ourselves when creating our self-catering accommodation was to draw up a wish list of all the things we seek when we’re staying away from home. Having stayed in some of the best (and, sadly, worst!) self-catering properties around the world, we know that feeling like you’re as comfortable on holiday as you are in your domestic surroundings is key to achieving a ‘home from home’, relaxed state of mind.

So our list went something like this…

  1. Crisp white linen and comfortable beds
    No matter how perfect the location (and North West Norfolk takes some beating), if you don’t let out at least a mental ‘aahhhh’ when you climb into bed at night, it’s not the perfect getaway. We challenge that our mattresses offer the perfect night’s sleep and we top them with crisp, cotton bed linen.
  2. A ‘proper’ kitchen
    Yes, we’ve struggled in those ‘squeeze a hob in the corner’ kitchens too. In our world, families migrate to the kitchen to cook, eat, chat and relax and so our self-catering properties have full-sized ovens, dishwashers, good quality (and matching!) crockery and a space for the whole clan to gather and enjoy good home-cooked food. By the way, if you’re looking for the best places to eat out or pick up great Norfolk ingredients, check out our Eats and treats page.
  3. Space
    Inside and out, we reckon having a bit of room to spread out makes for happy holiday families. At Norfolk Coast Holiday Cottages, you’ll find super comfy lounges, fabulous bedrooms, bathrooms and outdoor areas to take in all of that fresh Norfolk air.
  4. Fluffy towels
    After a day on one of Norfolk’s finest beaches or golf courses, everyone wants to freshen up and the power showers in our stylish bathrooms take some beating. There are plenty of fluffy towels to wrap up in afterwards.
  5. The perfect location
    Our self-catering properties are located in Old Hunstanton and Hunstanton, two of Norfolk’s last unspoilt coastal spots. While you’re visiting, head up to The Lodge for a warm welcome, fabulous food and a glass of something relaxing.
