About Hollyhock Cottage

Hollyhock Cottage is a holiday destination for every season. This sweet cottage, which is ideal for couples, is tucked away on the edge of the quiet village of Southrepps, a stroll from the Vernon Arms gastropub, and just a short drive from the beach at Cromer.

Despite its small stature, Southrepps is a vibrant village with a friendly community who make excellent use of the well-stocked village shop where you can buy all the essentials for a self-catering holiday in North Norfolk. The 15th Century church, St James’, plays an essential role in village life, as does the village hall which hosts everything from quiz nights to horticultural shows. A short drive from the cottage, South Walsham provides a wider variety of shops and amenities, including two supermarkets.

Southrepps is part of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which protects the unique characteristics of this wonderful landscape. Walking and cycling are both favourite pastimes and you can start at Southrepps Common, a beautiful nature reserve which is only 200 metres from the front door and a Site of Special Scientific Interest thanks to the diverse range of flora and fauna which flourish there.

Just a few miles from Hollyhock Cottage, the beaches beckon, promising the delights of sandy shorelines, steaming hot fish and chips or refreshing ice-cream, traditional seaside entertainments and stretches of solitary coast that you can explore via the Norfolk Coast Path. A walk around Cromer Lighthouse is a pleasure in any season, offering sensational views as a reward for climbing the 236 steps from the beach to the clifftop. Days out can also include trips to the coast at Sheringham, Winterton, Holkham and Cley, as well as a dozen other beaches. Alternatively, head inland to the stunning Norfolk Broads and explore the miles of magical waterways.

Gunton train station is a mile from Hollyhock Cottage, allowing you to leave the car behind and take the train between Sheringham and Norwich. Once second only to London in size and importance, Norwich is a beautiful medieval city with a fascinating past and excellent shops and restaurants, and can easily be explored on foot along cobbled streets. Do not miss a visit to the stunning Norman Cathedral, and meander through the vibrant market which runs six days a week.

North Norfolk is the perfect holiday destination regardless of the time of the year that you visit. The opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding, golf and sailing will delight any outdoor enthusiast, while foodies, shopaholics and history buffs are also exceptionally well catered for in the towns and villages surrounding Southrepps. In Hollyhock Cottage, the owners have created a relaxed yet romantic place where couples can enjoy spending time together.

Location (Norfolk)

Accommodation Comprises:

The owners of Hollyhock Cottage have carefully renovated and restored the traditional brick cottage to retain its original charm and character while bringing the standard of accommodation firmly into the 21st Century.


  • The open plan nature of the ground floor lets in lots of natural light so that it is a welcoming room at any time of the day. The living space benefits from comfortable seating and a log burning stove, which is heaven after a bracing winter's walk on the coast or through the countryside!
  • There is WiFi and a Smart TV in the cottage, and the owners have thoughtfully provided a selection of books and magazines for guests to enjoy during their stay.
  • Kitchen which is next to the living room, with solid oak worktops and a Farrow and Ball colour scheme that reflects the age and unfussy beauty of the cottage. High-quality appliances include a dishwasher and full-sized oven, as well as a washing machine and tumble drier.


  • The stylish decor continues upstairs with the focal point of the bedroom being a stunning king-sized antique French bed, complete with fresh white linen and comfortable bedding.
  • A former bedroom has been transformed into an elegant bathroom with a deep, freestanding bath where you can soak tired muscles. The room also has a tiled corner shower, heated towel rail, WC and handbasin.

Outside: Wooden stable doors lead from the kitchen to a sunny, south facing garden that is a mix of paving and gravel with mature shrubs and flowering plants. A separate seating area is a lovely place to sit with the papers and a pot of tea, or to linger over your evening meal on a long summer's evening. The cottage has a private, off-street parking space.

Additional Information: Hollyhock Cottage has central heating and WiFi throughout. All utilities, including logs for the wood burning stove, as well as sheets and bath towels, are provided. One small, well-behaved dog is welcome with prior agreement from the owner. Smoking is not permitted.
