Property details

May Cottage is a very pretty, traditional brick and flint cottage located down a quiet back road in South Creake. This delightful cottage has been beautifully furnished and fitted to a high standard with quality linens, comfortable beds and a small but very well-equipped kitchen. The elegant sitting room retains a "home from home" feel with comfortable sofas, tasteful decorations and is fitted with a wood burner to keep you warm on chilly, winter evenings. It has an attractive, secure, sunny garden with an outdoor table and benches which is perfect for summer entertaining.

South Creake is a thriving North Norfolk village with a popular pub, a children's play area and two grass tennis courts and is only a few miles inland from the beautiful North Norfolk coast and the ever-popular village of Burnham Market. This charming cottage is next door to Sherbet Cottage,which if available, the two could be booked together - ideal for larger families or groups of friends wishing to holiday together.

Surrounding local area

South Creake is a lovely village just a couple of miles from Burnham Market. There is a lovely village green in the centre with a play park for children and tennis courts. Sir John Betjeman loved the church here. The village is home to The Yorke Trust, founded in 1985 to promote the arts and particularly music among young people. A more recent development, The North Norfolk Music Festival, presents concerts by international musicians in the church.

Guest reviews

We have had a lovely week. Weather has been very good and May Cottage is very comfortable. Lots of interesting places to visit nearby - RSPB Titchwell, Holkham Hall and beach, steam railway from Holt to Sheringham is lovely too. One item which would be handy is a tea cosy! We will recommend this area and cottage to friends and would like to visit again. Thank you.

We have enjoyed our stay in your delightful cottage, the decor is lovely and the garden. Weather has been kind - we walk a lot, have only got damp a couple of times! Thank you for the scones and jam, kind thought.

We had a brilliant week at May cottage, helped by glorious weather. We are regular visitors to North Norfolk and found South Creake to be in a great position for exploring (by car).The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with plenty of room, especially upstairs. The garden was very pretty. We thought it excellent value for money.

What a delightful cottage - one of the nicest we've stayed in. Really comfy and homely and also well-equipped. We've enjoyed returning to our favourite places, Wells, Brancaster, Morston Quay for a seal trip and Cley. Have also found new things to do - Blickling Estate, CleySpy Art Cafe and bird walk, and Cley beach and nature reserve. We've been so lucky with the weather too. Thank you Tammy & Phil for opening up your home to those of us not able to have our own little piece of Norfolk ....yet!

May cottage was a perfect find. Traditional flint and stone with original features and with a glorious cottage garden in full bloom. The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and extremely cosy. South Creake is quiet and our walks with our dogs checking on the ducks and their babies was a nightly treat. The local pub is also the only local shop so you can get newspapers, milk, ice cream and takeaway fish and chips there. We shopped at North Creake, ate out in Brancaster and Burnham Market, and spent a lazy day at Holkham Beach. The week went far too quickly and we can't wait to return

Our second stay in May Cottage and as before a very well presented property. It really was home from home complete with homemade scones and jam awaiting our arrival !! and masses of extras to make our stay extremly comfortable. Many thanks to the owners Tammy and Phil for all those extras.

Our third trip to North Norfolk this year with our two dogs. We have been lucky to find very comfortable accommodation but without a doubt this has been the best for both comfort, facilities and location - we hope to return. Weather great. the Duck at Stanhoe is outstanding but do book to avoid disappointment, even in Sept. Thank you.

“A lovely cottage with all the items in the house you would wish for ranging from a dishwasher to high quality beds! A very central location to get to all the top spots in north Norfolk. The owners are helpful and have some great tips for local restaurants , esp. Duck inn in Stanhoe and dabbling duck. All round a place to go to and certainly worth a revisit!”
