Quince Cottage holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

The village of Gunthorpe is situated in a shallow valley on the eastern side of the A148 King’s Lynn to Cromer road. At the centre of the village is a green where there is a convergence of five roads. In the north west of the village there is a parish church which is dedicated to Saint Mary. Close by is the old village school which was built in 1869, but now closed. It is a very historical village with many interesting buildings including Gunthorpe Hall, designed by Sir John Soane who was the architect of The Bank of England building in Threadneedle Street. Close to the market towns of both Fakenham and Holt and just a short drive to the coast.

Guest reviews

Quince Cottage weekend stay - we recently stayed in this lovely little cottage for a long weekend, well kept very clean and totally perfect for two people and a dog. Central to Cromer and Wells-next-Sea, we will definitely be going back!

Cosy bolthole for us and the dogs - despite arriving at Quince Cottage on a cold wet Friday evening, from the moment we walked into the cosy cottage we were warm and at home. The heating was on and we snuggled up in front of the log fire with the bottle of Prosecco provided by the owners. The garden was secure for our two dogs and thr cottage was immaculate. The bed was large and comfortable and the bath robes were a nice touch. Be sure to have a plan for your meals as there are no shops within walking distance. The welcome pack is fine for the basics but we took our own breakfasts, dinner for two nights and ate out for a third. You are in the heart of beautiful Norfolk countryside but within a few minutes drive to the coast. If you have transport and are looking for a country retreat then this cottage is for you.

Lovely warm welcoming cosy cottage.
We arrived in the pouring rain to a lovely warm cosy cottage.The welcoming Wine crisps and cake were such a lovely treat.
The sun shone and the rain stopped. Everything was thought of in this lovely little cottage. We will be back.
