The Experience

Two cottages – two staircases – neatly woven into one, and a tiny sun room tucked onto the end. This is a sweet Norfolk brick and flint house, 180 years old, quintessentially English and idyllically positioned on a small-village road close to the coast. Over the garden gate is a huge wildlife-rich nature reserve of reed beds and woodland bisected by pushchair-friendly boardwalks – a privileged spot. Step through the door and into the dining room to low ceilings, a wooden floor and a lovely feeling of homeliness. Then the kitchen: low-beamed, well-equipped – the bathroom too is off here – and the sitting room, cosy with books, sculptures, squishy sofas and a wood-burner with logs on the house. Then up the steep narrow stairs to inviting bedrooms with sloping ceilings, low windows and doors to duck; the twin is nautically themed, the double a dream, with a carved mahogany bed and a glass chandelier. Feather toppers, scented candles, gorgeous linen… you are shamelessly spoiled. Brilliant for families, walkers, romantic couples – and dogs, enticed with biscuit snacks, holiday tags and a list of all the best walkies.

We booked the Willows Cottage for a last minute weekend trip and would highly reccomend it. The 180-year-old cottage is quirky and everything we needed was provided and in very good condition. The bed in the master bedroom was heaven. We loved the village Southrepps and the surrounding area and the beach isn't far either.

Rachel, London

The cottage is very cosy and the decor inside is lovely. It is in a good place to get to visit all the main areas. There a lot of good places near buy to have a meal.


The Willows is a lovely cottage, beautifully decorated and well equipped. It is in a nice quiet position but well located to explore the local area. Southrepps is a lovely village with a couple of good restaurants, in particular the Gunton Arms. The cottage is very dog friendly. We will return!

Nick, London

We enjoyed our stay in The Willows Cottage very much. It was cosy and comfortable yet large enough that we didn't feel cramped and in each other's way. It was clean and furnished to a good standard, with all the modern conveniences that you'd need. The location is convenient and central, with some pubs and restaurants within a short driving distance.

S., Gloucester

Lovely quaint cottage, very dog friendly. Everything you need and more in the cottage. It wouldn't suit someone who had difficulty getting upstairs as they are very steep but if that's not a problem for you a fantastic place to stay.

Lynne, Leeds

My husband and I stayed for a week at Willow Cottage and it was exactly as described in the details. Which was brilliant! The location was perfect, as we visited a different beach everyday and everything we needed for our stay was thoughtfully planned out and taken care of (including dog friendly information) as we had my mum’s Cairn Terrier Lucy with us on holiday. We would definitely recommend Willow Cottage to stay and we always use Sawdays as a guide when we’re booking for either a weekend or a weeks holiday staycation!

Cathy, Cambridge

Great cottage. Very comfortable and decorated to a very high standard with quirky touches that makes it feel a fun place. Beds very comfortable and all the equipment you could wish for. We really enjoyed our stay and chatting to the locals who came to bowl at the village hall.

Peter, Huddersfield

Excellent property, super owner, we loved it and have booked again for 2018.

Scott, Marlborough

We have stayed on three separate occasions at the Willows. It is a wonderful, quiet cottage, with all the space and facilities a family needs -- and fantastic beds! The location is also excellent.
