Upper Sheringham, Norfolk

+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

This well-equipped converted barn is set over two floors and is the ideal base for two. From the kitchen you have distant sea views encouraging you to follow the track to the wonderful beach across the fields and cliff tops, just a twenty minute walk away. There is something special about sitting outside and enjoying a morning coffee in this tranquil setting with the sound of a steam train crossing the estate on the Poppy Line Steam Railway.

As well as the coast, you also have Sheringham Park on your doorstep with 770 acres of woodland and parkland to explore. The park is perfect for long dog walks and can be accessed whatever the time of day. It is home to an array of wildlife boasting three varieties of deer and a vast collection of rhododendrons and azaleas so you will never be bored. For a change of scenery, potter around the high street and sea front shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants of Sheringham or wander across the park to the small country hotel restaurant and bar just ten minutes away.

You have excellent beaches all the way along of the Norfolk coast and popular coastal towns such as Cromer to visit. Norwich is under an hour away. We have several properties to visit within easy reach of Sheringham, many also offering activities and events throughout the year, for inspiration click on the ‘Nearby’ tab above.

East Anglia

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

    Made special by:

    The location, access to Sheringham Park and the view from the kitchen window are excellent. And in the summer, the barn owls nesting in the roof make this cottage truly exceptional, if a little noisy at times! We have stayed in this cottage many times and it is always so well presented with flowers, a card , and on this occasion a Christmas gift, making us feel very welcome.

    Made special:

    Being close to the countryside and the sea, watching wildlife in the fields, and very peaceful surroundings. We were very satisfied with all aspects of our holiday, will be more than happy to visit again.

    Very Well Presented

    Very well presented, clean and welcoming. Good to meet one of the local volunteers who showed us inside the barn and the tractor he was restoring.
