Cosy Corner is on a quiet village road in Stanhoe, about five miles inland from Brancaster on the north Norfolk coast. There's a good pub in the village and a children's playground.

It's for up to four people – there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin. The living space includes a dining room and sun room as well as the sitting room and kitchen, and there’s a reading nook on the landing. See the Gallery for photos.

The sunny garden at the front of the cottage is quiet and comfortable, and there’s parking for two cars on the drive.

Check availability and costs on the 2024 bookings calendar.

Stanhoe is in an ideal location for visiting the beaches and salt marshes of the north Norfolk coast. Holkham beach is a favourite, it has a miles of sand and dunes backed by shady pine woods, with hides for watching the geese that overwinter on the marshes. There’s also a café and visitors’ centre at the The Lookout.

Locally, you can sail at Brancaster Staithe or Burnham Overy Staithe, visit stately homes and lovely churches, explore nature reserves and relax in more than a few decent pubs and restaurants. The coast road has lots of places to buy fish and seafood straight off local boats. There's horseracing and a farmers' market at Fakenham, and Wells still has a sixties feel with fish and chips and candyfloss.

The coast attracts artists and photographers too and there are plenty of exhibitions and galleries to browse.

Or you can relax at the cottage. Stanhoe has a pub, a church and a children's playground. There are several duck ponds and we get ducks and moorhens in the garden – lovely in the spring when they bring in their young.
