"We have had so many lovely holidays in The Coach House. It is a super property; welcoming ,warm and beautifully dressed and maintained. Our family of grandparents, children and grandchildren all say it is their favourite place to stay to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions and we are all very fussy! 

Such a little gem in a beautiful part of the country.   

Stephen (December 2020)

The Coach House


A luxurious, family and dog friendly holiday cottage, sleeping 6 people in the heart of Norfolk with easy access to the historic City of Norwich, the famous Norfolk Broads, and the picturesque North Norfolk coastline.


The Coach House is perfectly situated between historic Norwich and the stunning North Norfolk coast.

Next to the 14th Century church and village green, it's just a short stroll from Banningham Crown, the award-winning village pub.

Close to National Trust properties, excellent walking and cycle routes and family friendly attractions and activities. 

Reclaimed exposed timber beams, a secluded, walled south facing lawn and expansive outside seating area make this a perfect location to sit back, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
