The Experience

Welcome to four beautiful old cottages (once a cartshed, all in a row), strolling distance from a duck pond and magnificent Sharrington Hall. The largest cottage is Shell, its colours a soothing blend of oyster, silver and taupe, which welcomes dogs. The smallest is Seal, all muted greys and driftwood touches; with a charcoal grey roll-top by a dove grey four-poster, it is bliss for romancers. Sky, a symphony of blues, lavenders and greys, is also dog-friendly; Samphire’s palette reflects Norfolk’s marshes – go pick some samphire for dinner! Expect generosity at every turn: each cottage comes with immaculate white towels and a log-burner for winter, and all (bar one) a bathroom for every room. Oak or painted floorboards are topped with rugs, custom-made kitchens have large range cookers, coir carpeted stairs lead to walk-in showers and delicious crisp beds – what could be nicer? The setting is brilliant, half a mile from an award-winning deli and close to all that North Norfolk has to offer. Holkham Beach is 11 miles, Blakeney and Cley four, Holt just two. Restaurants, galleries and antique shops abound. Special.

The Shell cottage experience was delightful from beginning to end. The cottages are set in a peaceful green idyll within the Norfolk countryside. This tastefully restored and decorated cottage felt instantly welcoming, homely and relaxing. Exposed beams, muted colours, high quality and sympathetic fittings feel an embodied part of the experience and reflect the creative vision of the owners. White fluffy towels and lashings of hot water, comfortable beds with crisp cool linen await you after a day of exploring this area of natural beauty and spectacular coastline.

We loved our stay in Seal - lovely and stylish cottage at Sharrington Hall. Peace and quiet, beautiful countryside- loved to wake up to just birds singing. Good location to get to lots of places in North Norfolk. We very much appreciated the Covid precautions made by the Steve & Katie, we felt very safe and very welcome. They came around personally for a chat and provided a long list of valuable recommendations in advance via email.

Just had a lovely few days in Sky Cottage with our dog. Wonderful location, beaches, walks, town, and many places of interest close by. Stunning accommodation with everything you need and fitted out to a very high standard. The cottages also have a lovely garden. Very helpful but unobtrusive hosts. Very relaxing experience.

We have just returned from our amazing weekend at Cartshed cottages! We stayed in Shell. It was absolutely stunning I wanted to pick it up and take it home. Everything we could have possibly have wanted was there for us.We loved the wood burning stove xx Thankyou Steve and Kate we are already planning our return trip in the spring xx

This is our second break at Cartshed Cottages, last time we stayed in Samphire which was lovely and this time in Shell which is also beautiful and larger - it was very indulgent for two but absolutely perfect - we enjoyed all the surrounding historic Houses - villages - stunning coastline and great pubs with good local food - it really is an idyllic situation and a special self-catering holiday.

Jeannette, Kent

Delightful cottage, comfortable beds and wonderful hosts. Perfect location for family cycling and visiting local attractive villages.

Nikola, Crowborough

We loved our stay at Cartshed Cottages,super comfortable and with everything we could possibly need. We stayed in Sky with our dog who was approving too. Loads of great walks and pubs and lovely little villages, North Norfolk just stunning and the cottages in the heart of it all. Katie and Steve were wonderful hosts, hitting the perfect balance of making sure you're happy and settled then leaving you to it. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Sonia, London

Beautiful cottage. We stayed in Seal, the perfect retreat for two. Thoughtfully restored and decorated, the cottage is luxurious, cosy and comfortable. Every last detail thought of - high quality finish, well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Steve and Katie were so charming and helpful - lovely homegrown strawberries to welcome us! Lots to see and do close by - beach walks, yummy food, lovely shops. The perfect escape from London!

Sarah, London

It is a lovely cottage in a very relaxing environment. Loved all the details and the personal attention. I will totally recommend it!

"Seal cottage is stunning for a relaxed and stylish break. An ideal location close to lovely places including Holt, Stiffkey, Holkham, Cley, Salthouse and many more. The Cottage itself is in a beautiful quiet location and stunning interior to match. A Perfect place to relax and explore North Norfolk"

Jason, Ipswich

Wonderfully relaxing stay in Sky, an ideal cottage both for us and our dog. Luxurious beds and linen, cosy woodburner , and a dreamy setting. Steve and Katie left great notes on the area, alongside a lovely bottle of wine , and a treat for the dog .. a great short break


We stayed in the Shell cottage this weekend and cannot give it (and the whole experience of staying at Cartshed cottages) enough praise. The cottage was immaculate, stylish and homely. There were lots of personal touches including fire wood, wine on arrival and a hairdryer, which were all really appreciated. The location was absolutely perfect for exploring the area. It was a complete oasis. The owners of the cottages made the whole experience easy from beginning to end seamless and easy. We can't wait to go back!!


We have visited the North Norfolk coast numerous times, but Christmas 2013 in Seal Cottage at Sharrington Hall was the perfect holiday - the location, the hospitality, the furnishings and decoration, the comfort. A well equipped kitchen, a big fireplace with wood stove, a comfy informal four posted bed, an in-bedroom bath, a separate shower room all add up to the ideal 'home away from home! Upon our arrival for the Christmas break, we turned on the light, to be greeted by a beautiful 'minimal' tree along with a pannatone and a bottle of prosecco. Thank you! We'll be back ….


Had an absolutely wonderful long weekend at Seal cottage. Weather was windy and wet ie Norfolk October but Steve and Katie made us feel very welcome and the cottage was beautifully appointed. Handbuilt kitchens, REN toileteries, lovely roll top bath and wet room. Delightful touches to welcome us to the cottage and a brilliant "bible" of local info and eateries etc from Steve and Katie. Super chic decoration to come back to from windy walks on the beach to a cosy woodburner. Romantic, urban chic combined with country cottage - perfect. Highly recommended.


This was our second stay, and this time we brought the whole family, hiring three of the four cottages for a birthday celebration. We had three generations and two continents represented in our group but there was complete consensus - this really is a perfect place to get away. The wonderful weather played its part, but the chic designs of the cottages and the sense of luxury contributed immeasurably to a memorable long weekend.


Fabulous cottage in the grounds of a Jacobean Mansion; all beautifully restored and decorated in impecccable taste by Katie and Steve. They are solicitous hosts who even texted us the day before arrival with a weather report. A welcome pack of the local Sharrington strawberries and a lovely bottle of wine made us feel at home. We stayed in Seal cottage , warm and cosy, perfect for a relaxing break. we were ten minutes from the coast at Blakeney and the endless skies of Norfolk beaches. Bliss. Lots of interesting places to visit if you can bear to leave the hypnotic power of the coast.


We have just returned from an idyllic mini break in Seal Cottage, which is delightful, well equipped and provided every thing we could need. Steve & Katie are great hosts balancing a warm welcome and advice with privacy.


Just had a fantastic late summer weekend in Norfolk, staying at Seal Cottage. What a find! It was quiet and peaceful, which we were looking for after a busy few months. Seal is beautifully decorated and large for a 2-person cottage. The bedroom is huge, complete with roll-top bath and four-poster bed– luxury! Katie and Steve were fantastic hosts, texting us with a local weather forecast and directions before we arrived, providing a great written guide to area highlights and a bowl of fresh strawberries for our arrival – a lovely touch.


We spent 3 days in Seal cottage and have nothing but praise to offer to Steve and Katie. The cottage has been decorated and equipped to an exceptional standard and clearly by someone with an eye for style and design. This place was a perfect mix of tranquil rural charm, elegance, and modern convenience.

This was our first visit to the Cartshed Cottages but it certainly won't be our last. One of the most beautiful places we've stayed, the cottages are finished to such a high standard by a couple who really care about the experience of the people who stay in their cottages. Looking forward to booking another stay in Sharrington next time we are back in the UK.
