Friday to Monday off peak cottage weekend breaks are popular for special family occasions or just stress busting weekend breaks (except during peak summer and school holiday periods). Monday to Friday short break in Norfolk are good value, with 4 nights for the price of 3. Out of season the countryside and towns in North Norfolk are quieter, the beaches deserted, pubs and restaurants are not as booked and we tend to be less busy. You may well find that you have the pool and tennis courts to yourselves during out of season short breaks.

For a special occasion gourmet weekend why not book a good local restaurant. This may take some advance planning especially if you have the excellent Galton Blackiston’s Michelin starred Morston Hall in mind. There are also several good restaurants not too far from here: The Victoria at Holkham, The White Horse at Brancaster and the Hoste Arms at Burnham Market.

For gourmet cooks on a weekend self catering break, Norfolk has a wealth of good local produce from organically grown fruit and vegetables, locally grazed meats, locally caught fish and seafood, handmade Norfolk cheeses and handmade chocolates. Our cottage kitchens are very well equipped with both a Rayburn and gas cooker in two of our cottages. You can pre-order delicacies before you come or just enjoy seeking out the specialist shops when you arrive.

“First Class Accommodation - highly recommended. We have stayed in 3 properties and would not hesitate in recommended them. We take our 2 small children (under 4) and often take my mother-in-law (for babysitting) and we particularly like in heated, indoor, salt water pool and huge fenced off play area which each property backs onto. Compared with other accommodation we have staying in, these are the best by a long shot.”
