Snettisham is a most attractive village on the shores of the Wash, comprising a pleasant blend of old and pretty carrstone cottages and newer homes. It has its own beach from which you can sail, windsurf or swim.
The cottage is located in the centre of Snettisham in close proximity to the village shops, pubs, restaurants, playing fields and Church. In the village there’s a good choice of local shops and pubs that serve excellent food. One of the notable pubs is the Rose and Crown, which has won many awards including the prestigious “British Pub of the Year 2015”. Also in Snettisham is The Old Bank Restaurant which won the Good Food Guide Best Local Restaurant in the UK 2019. Snettisham offers something for everyone, no matter your age, no matter the weather. It is handily placed for the larger traditional holiday resort of Hunstanton to the North and the old town of King’s Lynn to the South.
Also close are the famous sandy beaches at Brancaster, Holme next the Sea, and Thornham. Other attractions nearby include the Royal Estate of Sandringham surrounded by numerous picture postcard carrstone cottage villages. Norfolk Lavender at Heacham, bird watching at the nearby RSPB Reserves of Snettisham and Titchwell where visitors are always welcome and Thetford Forest with its fabulous walks and wildlife. Snettisham is a perfect location for discovering both historic West Norfolk and the beautiful North Norfolk Coast with its beaches, golf courses, walks, bird watching, sailing, etc.
For the shoppers Burnham Market offers high quality shopping in a Georgian setting while Swaffham boasts its attractive triangular market place which on Saturdays hosts its famous open-air market and public auction.
From Snettisham it is an easy drive to the visitor attractions in the neighbouring counties, Ely, Cambridge, Newmarket and the Duxford Imperial War Museum with its unique aircraft collection and the Thursford Spectacular to name but a few.
Such an enjoyable visit yet again. We all love the cottage and feel so relaxed here and the cottage is so well equipped. We didn't get to the pub but can recommend it. For coffee we went to Briarfields in Titchwell and also Petals in Dersingham. Thanks so much much to Hazel and Bernard. We will be back! Note From Bernard: The Robson party are among our regular guests to whom we are very grateful.
We have had such a lovely family Christmas in your beautiful cottage. The cottage had everything we needed. We enjoyed watching the geese flying over every evening and got up at 6:30am and walked over the mud flats to see them take off on Christmas Eve. Thank you (Christmas Week 2008)
Enjoyed staying in your lovely cottage in great location, so close for getting to see Thursford Autumn Spectacular. Many thanks. Hope to come back next year!
We had a most enjoyable week (weather quite good too!) and all agreed it is a most delightful cottage, so well equipped and in a lovely area. We used all the rooms except the children's bedroom as the youngsters moved the cot into their room after the first night. We were very warm and comfortable. Thanks again for everything.
Spacious well-equipped comfortable cottage. Lovely village with plenty of amenities. Great Crab Salad at the Rose and Crown. Good beach at Snettisham. Don't miss King's Lynn and Quay Area. Cycled to Sandringham, lovely picnic area and scenic drive. local chippy makes great chips and a useful Co-op. See North Norfolk Railway from Holt to Sheringham. Also Norfolk Lavender harvest time - brilliant, Thanks
Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. A lovely family holiday, one that we shall always remember.
We had a lovely relaxing week at your cottage. The peaceful surroundings made it seem like we were stepping back in time, especially the Steam Train trip and the restored Railway Station which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The cottage is a “Tardis”, we had no idea it was so large, it seems to go on and on! Thank you for helping us to join the sailing club.
Excellent venue for Family celebration and base for walking group. Very well equipped, warm and cosy. lovely location. Thank you very much.
Had two weeks of superb weather! Lovely place to visit - especially enjoyed the bird spectaculars at RSPB Snettisham Reserve - also at RSPB Titchwell Marsh Reserve. Good coastal walks and visits to National Trust Oxburgh Hall and Blickling Estate. A very well equipped and comfortable cottage. The food at the Rose and Crown is excellent and the Old Bank good too.
Many thanks Bernard & Hazel for making us so welcome. We have enjoyed our week very much. The cottage is lovely, roomy and the best stocked accommodation we have ever stayed in. It is a real home from home and we felt comfortable the moment we entered. We hope to return again soon.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We very much hope we will be able to use it again soon as we had such a lovely time.
We had a very good holiday with all the family; our sons and their wives plus two grandchildren. The weather was perfect and the house beautifully equipped everything we needed. The grandchildren enjoyed the toys and the three-wheeled buggy proved very useful. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your Snettisham Cottage.
Great place with lots of space for 3 generations. Great base for exploring Norfolk. Furniture and deco could do with an update to make this a perfect family getaway. Another very pleasant stay here. Birdwatching fantastic. Snettisham villagers very friendly. *Note from Bernard: Early in 2020, in response to our guest's comments, we have carried out a comprehensive update and improvement programme.*
Our first visit to the Snettisham Cottage and Snettisham and we were impressed! The Cottage is very well equipped and our children thoroughly enjoyed the toys and the garden! Brancaster Beach is well worth a visit and the Rose and crown for good grub! Snettisham Park Farm is great for very little children – all in all a great holiday – Thank you!
Had a lovely holiday despite the weather. Been everywhere possible in our 2 weeks. Another fantastic holiday home* with everything possible to make our stay comfortable. Many thanks. Note From Bernard: * Paul and Family had previously stayed in our Florida Villa (when we had one).
We had a fantastic time here at the cottage, plenty of room and located well with the pubs and Co-Op and plenty of amenities in the cottage. Great walled garden to sit in drinking late and a great idea to have games and PS2 for the kids. We will come back!
Awesome house and loved the board games cupboard. The house is in a gorgeous village, perfect location and is set up with all essentials and more. You have a gorgeous house!
A great place to celebrate New Year, we all had a wonderful time. Thank you.
Thank you for our holiday at Snettisham Cottage. We had a really good time and found the cottage very comfortable with everything we needed. P.S. Thanks for posting my Mother-in–Laws earrings on to us, they are her favourites!
Another very enjoyable stay, this time with lots of sunshine and only the odd shower. We re-visited all our old haunts – old Hunstanton, Holkham House and Sands, the lavender at Heacham – and also discovered Bircham Windmill, a great place for children and cake and fresh bread lovers! Nearby the farm shop at Great Bircham is under new management and sells good local produce. We hope to return next year.
Once again another very good week at the Cottage. Got in to look at the Church this time (key held at Post Office). Enjoyed home cooked meal at the Queen Victoria. P.S. Couldn’t find a dictionary! Note From Bernard: We challenge guests to identify any deficiencies in the cottage inventory as we believe we have equipped it as a home and not as a holiday let. There is a dictionary there now & a Thesaurus!
Lovely Cottage. Everything you could possible want is in the cottage. Snettisham is a lovely village and you can see why people want live and visit here. The weather wasn’t the best but we found plenty to do. Dinosaur World is fantastic. Would love to come back soon.
Just returned from our week’s holiday at your cottage and wanted to let you know what a great time we had. You cottage is a fantastic place, really home from home and supplied everything we needed. My Dad really enjoyed his 80th birthday at the cottage as you will see from his comments in your Visitors Book! He’s even left you a present - four egg cups!
Had five days good walking, weather great for purpose; not hot, not cold, not wet, almost dry! We had dinner at the Yuit, Stoneham, an unusual venue.
Another lovely stay at Corner Cottage. Relaxation from the moment we stepped into the cottage. Another fantastic meal at the Rose and Crown. We will be back! Thanks Bernard & Hazel Note From Bernard: Another one of our 70% repeat bookings to whom we are grateful.
Barrie's 60th Birthday Bash! Ideal accommodation for 8 adults to celebrate a big birthday and see in the New Year!
Very well appointed home, all you could possibly need and more! Lovely village, a very good base for visiting other areas. Looking forward to coming back next year.
I would like to express on behalf of all our party what a wonderful time we all had at Snettisham Cottage and how warm and comfortable we all were. A New Year break we will always remember! Thanking you once again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in your lovely cottage. Everything went according to plan - even the weather was more than kind to us. It just went too quick. Hope to rent your cottage sometime again in the not too far future.
