A relaxing residence located in an area of outstanding natural beauty
Fully surrounded by trees and nature, nestled within one acre of National Trust woodland. We offer a tranquil retreat for those looking for a break from the city, with many nearby attractions to keep visitors occupied.
Welcome to North Norfolk
We are positioned within walking distance of the picturesque town centre of Cromer and the seafront, known as the "Gem of the Norfolk Coast". Also close by is the delightful National Trust residence and estate of Felbrigg.
We welcome pets to stay in some of our rooms, and this is a fabulous area for dog-walking. We have our own resident dog, Jenny, who is one of the gentlest and most loving dogs in the world
Pheasants, deer and woodland birds
... and Elton the cat lives here too. There are a number of wild animal visitors to the property. Owls can be heard by night throught the spring. Frogs lounge in the pond in summer. And deer come to eat the sweet chestnuts in autumn.
Relaxing for parents, fun for kids
We are family-friendly and have many facilities and equipment for children. Feel free to borrow our bikes and explore the coastline in style

From the A140, turn left onto the B1436 at a mini roundabout, following signs for Felbrigg. Travel for approximately 3 miles and then take a right turn, opposite a signpost, onto Metton Road. About 1 mile later, Hall Road merges in from the left, and we are the first house on the left after that.
From the A148, take a right turn onto the B1436 following the sign to Felbrigg Hall. Travel for about 1 mile until the first left turning, opposite the large gated opening of Felbrigg Hall. Take this narrow road for half a mile until Metton Road merges in from the right, and we are the first house on the left after that.
The nearest station is Cromer, just a couple of minutes away by car.
If you don't wish to walk down Hall Road to us, please either arrange for a local taxi firm to meet you at the station (cost around £3.50), or let us know the arrival time of your train for us to collect you.
