About
Description
May Cottage was built in the late 18th century and was once owned by a wealthy brewery family from London. The property was used for their annual holidays where the family were extremely well looked after by their More accompanying servants. The property has been extended over the years and is now a substantial quality home and business both owned and run by your hosts Carol and Jeff. This lovely bright and welcoming home is close to the vibrant market towns of North Walsham and Stalham. We are ideally situated on the North Norfolk coast just a short stroll away from a stunning sandy beach. For those who wish to experience the Norfolk Broads, it’s just 10 minutes away. There are a number of places nearby where you can hire a boat by the hour, half day or full day, e.g. Wroxham, Stalham, Potter Heigham and Horning. There are numerous quality pubs and restaurants only a short distance away. We highly recommend guests walk along the beach to the ‘Poachers Pocket’ which offers both pub food and a la carte menu. Rooms are available from 16.00 hrs on day of arrival and must be vacated by 10.00 hrs on day of departure – We operate a minimum 2 night policy at weekends – Latest check-in time is 20.00 hrs unless notified by prior arrangement – Early check-in/Later check-out requests may be offered subject to availability/prior arrangement at an additional charge of £10 per room. Availability/Bookings/Payments can be made in advance of your stay securely on-line for our two B&B rooms by following the instructions via the green book on line now buttons; however, I am sorry but it is not possible to book the Sandringham suite on-line at this present time but enquiries can be made via the contact button, or telephone. We also accept cash, card and electronic bank transfer payments. Please note: May Cottage is a non- smoking establishment and is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 years – Sorry but we have a strict ‘no pets policy’ to prevent any conflict or distress to ‘Jack’ the owners friendly resident adult cat. Nearby sea-side resorts and historic towns include: Cromer – 20mins, Sheringham – 30mins, Holt – 40mins, Norwich – 45mins N.B. All times shown if travelling by car. Less
