Surrounding local area

Ringstead is an unspoilt village just a few miles in from the North Norfolk Coast. Whether you want an active, adventure-packed holiday, or just want some peace and quiet, this is the perfect place to be.

The village boasts the renowned Gin Trap Inn, a traditional 17th Century Coaching Inn with good food, a great selection of beers, wines and welcoming staff. It also stocks more than 100 gins for you to try! In the winter it is cosy with roaring log fires and in the summer there is lovely decked garden to the rear to enjoy the sun's rays.

The village general store is certainly unique. Not only does it stock everything from newspapers and local produce to logs and cleaning products, it has a labyrinth of rooms for you to explore, where you will find an eclectic collection of old and new items for sale. There is also an excellent garden centre in the village too.

The Peddars Way passes through the village on its way to join the Coastal Path, so there is good walking to be had here and on the Ringstead Downs along with some amazing views. The village is on the National Cycle Network and is part of the Norfolk Coast Cycleway. The sandy beach, pubs, restaurants and Links Golf Course at Old Hunstanton are just two miles away. Children will love the acquarium at Hunstanton and there are watersports in this season town too. Head to trend Burnham Market for a spot of shopping or Holkham Hall for a bit of culture. HM The Queen's Sandringham Residence is a short driveaway too, as are the RSPB nature reserves at Titchwell and Snettisham.

Guest reviews

Home from home - An amazing cottage in a great location. Pretty village close to the amazing beaches of Brancaster, Holkham and Wells. The cottage has everything you could ask for. Comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen, wood burning stove (which came in very handy when returning from a snowy windy beach trip). I couldn't recommend this place any more and hope to come back next year. Even saw seals at Wells Beach.

Wonderful, cosy cottage - We had a lovely week-long stay at Orchard cottage, couldn’t have been happier - decor, cleanliness, comfort, location - exactly what we were after.

A Little Gem!

We stayed at Orchard Cottage for 3 days and wished it was for longer! The cottage is beautiful! The décor and furnishings are incredible. The attention to detail is second to none. You feel at home as soon as you walk through the front door, and the cottage is so cosy when the log burning fire is on. The local pub, The Gin Trap Inn is a 10 minute walk away and serves great food and yummy gin. I did try and book Orchard Cottage for my birthday weekend next year, however at that time of year it is a minimum of 7 nights stay as it is half term which is understandable. You will be hard pushed to find somewhere else with the high level of décor and furnishings............I have looked and cannot find anything better as yet! :0)

A lovely cottage, has everything you need and is very comfortable. A good base to explore the local area. Was perfect for us as a couple with a dog. Would definitely stay again!

We had a fabulous stay in Orchard Cottage this summer. It was a home from home. We've been visiting Norfolk for the last 6 or 7 years and for the last five with our two young boys. This was one of the best cottages we've stayed in yet both for the quality of the cottage and for the location. Our big bugbear on holiday is rubbish knives and small thin towels neither of which were an issue here. It was equipped with everything we needed and had a really good shower, a full size bath and thick new towels. The owners have clearly thought about their guests comfort. I would highly recommend a visit.

We enjoyed our two week stay at the Orchard cottage. It has a very cosy and welcoming atmosphere and lots of specially selected items. The cottage has everything to have a pleasant and comfortable stay. We loved taking our breakfast in the light garden room while looking at the numerous birds in the nice garden. One afternoon even a deer passed outside the garden gate. The location is perfect for exploring the beautiful area with its nearby splendid beaches. We made many extensive walks and enjoyed visiting Holkham hall, Sandringham and Houghton hall. We haven't seen it all yet and will certainly be back!!

After searching through hundreds of cottages - we came upon this little gem! My husband and I needed a well deserved break - quality time together to get away fom it all with our 2 little dogs. This cottage went above and beyond our expectations. Such a lovely cosy place to relax in. The garden is fantastic and secure for the dogs to enjoy. Attention to detail within the cottage was second to none. The bed was so comfortable, the location lovely and peaceful. The Gin Trap pub just a short walk away was also a fantastic experience, food amazing and staff so friendly. On our last day, we actually didn't want to leave and will definitely be returning very soon.

had a lovely holiday with my Mum at Orchard Cottage. the cottage was immaculately clean and spotless as was the bed linen and the very comfy beds. it was decorated to a very high standard. The garden was lovely. very close to tour the beautiful North Norfolk Coast. The Gin Trap pub in the village highly recommend. The only negative would be if staying with small children the stairs are steep and open, not very child friendly. A wonderful cottage to relax and unwind in.
