Quick guide to your location

The village of Snettisham is situated on the North Norfolk coast, just a few miles from the royal residence at Sandringham and boasts a superb RSPB reserve, award winning 15th century coaching inn and Snettisham Park Farm, a working farm offering fantastic family days out.

For those of you that are more attracted to warmer environments, there’s the Old Store, offering fantastic food both day and night and the bar at Snettisham Rose and Crown is an attractive option well worth consideration. This 14th century coaching inn has provided respite to weary travellers for nearly 700 years and in 2015 it was recognised as the UK Pub of the Year. Fantastic for families, couples and dog walkers, you can equally enjoy a fancy three course meal as you can a pint of Woodfordes in the enclosed garden while the children play in the pirate ship play area.

The royal estate at Sandringham is only a few miles inland and gives guests a chance to view the grand rooms of the main house, the extraordinary collection of classic cars in the museum, the formal gardens of the immediate surrounds and the wider woodland estate that lies beyond. Well worth a visit!

The Derbys

Lovely Cottage! Appreciate the hamper-nice touch. Good weekend at the horse trials.


We loved our week here in freezing conditions. The cottage was super warm and cosy - a lovely pre-christmas retreat. The lights on Snettisham church are beautiful after dark. The Rose and Crown is a gem as is The Old Store. The Christmas decorations were a lovely touch, thank you!


Fab week in Snettisham! We enjoyed getting lost on some of our dog walks. The weather was kind to us and an unbelievable day on the beach at Holkham. The cottage has everything we needed and its location in the village was perfect (hubby especially enjoyed his daily visits to the Rose and Crown). We will definitely return to the area as there is so much we have not has time to visit. Thank you for giving us use of the cottage.


A lovely little cottage and area is lovely. We visited Sandringham, Holkham and Wells-Next-To-Sea. We had a great meal at The Lifeboat in Thornham.


Lovely cottage in a great location! We visited Holkham, Brancaster and Thornham. Had some great food at The Lodge Hunstanton and The Rose and Crown, We also visited Sandringham and paid our respects to her Majesty. It was very emotional with all the beautiful flowers and tributes. Thank you for the welcome hamper.
