The Potting Shed holiday cottage location

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 a peaceful retreat, 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. 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 all to be found at Old Hunstanton, are just two miles away, so within walking distance or easy cycling distance of The Potting Shed.

Head to the nearby village of Thornham where you'll find a plethora of pubs and restaurants, a fabulous deli/cafe, plus farm shop and even a restaurant in a yurt! Or the quieter village of Holme-next-the-Sea where you'll find a beautiful beacn and nature reserve, plus a good pub; The White Horse which serves more traditional fayre.

Guest reviews

We had an amazing weekend get-away at the Potting Shed. The accommodation was very comfortable, and spacious for us all. The garden was also very well maintained, and allowed us to enjoy some time in the sun. There was a lovely touch with a bottle of wine and box of chocolates on arrival. Overall, great stay and time away in Norfolk.

The Potting Shed is a lovely house beautifully fitted out with great views and it proved to be a great location for a family birthday celebration with a very wide age range. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
