Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


With access to the owner’s outdoor heated swimming pool and tennis court, Manor Cottage occupies an ideal location in the village of Stiffkey.

Set in the picturesque coastal village of Stiffkey and just 5 minutes from Wells-next-the-Sea, this detached holiday cottage provides light and airy accommodation with lots of original features. Originally a barn belonging to the manor house, it enjoys a peaceful setting with seasonal access to the owner’s outdoor heated swimming pool and year-round access to their tennis court. Stiffkey offers access to the sea via its famous and much photographed salt marshes, and is famous for its Stewkey Blues; plump and tasty cockles, which are blue in colour due to the mud in which they live.

This whole part of the North Norfolk Coastline offers a range of picturesque seaside villages and towns, salt marshes, shingle beaches and wide golden sands that are perfect for sun bathing, relaxing or for bracing walks. Whichever way you travel from Stiffkey, you will find much to see and do. Its closest and arguably most popular neighbour is Well-next-the-Sea, with its narrow gauge railway, pretty quayside and mix of artisan and traditional seaside shops, cafes and restaurants. Further along lies Holkham, home to Holkham Hall and a beautiful beach that featured in the film Shakespeare in Love. Hunstanton boasts a Sea Life Sanctuary, a small fairground and lots of traditional seaside entertainment for parents and children alike. To the east, Blakeney offers the chance to take a boat trip to see the seal colonies, and it’s also a prime spot for crabbing. The bustling seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer are a must-visit during your stay, with their fantastic beaches and a famous pier. History buffs will find that along with Holkham Hall, The Sandringham Estate and Blickling Hall (NT) are within easy reach as well.

When you feel like a change of pace, you can head to the medieval city of Norwich, or follow the Hanseatic Trail through old King’s Lynn. Add in RSPB sites and a wealth of wildlife reserves, great walks and cycle routes, tasty restaurants and charming cafés, and you’ll see exactly why this part of Norfolk remains a very popular choice for holiday goers. After a busy day exploring, you will find that Manor Cottage is just the place to relax, unwind and dream of adventures yet to come. Beach ½ mile. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    We very much enjoyed our stay at Manor Cottage. It was cosy and comfortable and met our family needs. It was a perfect location to discover many nearby places and enjoy long walks on the beach with our 2 dogs. A lovely property, the owner was always friendly, helpful and welcoming. We will for sure be looking forward to a return visit.

    This was a lovely cottage and the Owner came to welcome us. It was a little too far out of Wells for us but that is because we like to walk to the beach in the morning. I would definitely visit again it is in such a quiet spot I did not want to leave

    Unfortunately we were unable to use the small single room as it smelt of damp/urine and the Cottage as a whole cottage was pretty dirty. The kitchen lacks basics such as a draining area, which is required since there is no dishwasher and it could also do with an extractor fan. The whole place is a tad tired and could do with updating. On the positive side the wifi works well and it is great to have access to a swimming pool and tennis court and the outside area is nice as is the village, although it takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to walk to the sea.

    We and our friends absolutely loved our stay at Manor Cottage. Gorgeous rooms, comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen meant that we spent a large amount of our time at the cottage and exploring the local area. The village is beautiful, quiet and has a great pub as well as walks for the dog and a play area for children. Definitely will be returning at some point in the future!

    Manor Cottage was peaceful and relaxing, which is just what we wanted. It was also ideally located to explore the Wells to Sheringham area of the Norfolk coast.
