“Perfect for winter wildlife or summer seaside fun”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in January 2014
person found this review helpful

Greylag Cottage is conveniently located near the harbour at Wells-next-the Sea and is perfect for birders, photographers and other wildlife enthusiasts looking to enjoy the fantastic wildlife of the north Norfolk coastline. It's literally minutes from Holkham Hall and other birding hotspots. The thousands of geese and other winter wildfowl that congregate here are an awesome spectacle. What's more, visitors will find seals down the coast at Blakeney Point and there's even a resident barn owl in the field behind the cottage!

The cottage itself is cosy but can accommodate up to four people. It's well appointed and very tasteful and makes a perfect base for exploring the local area. The welcome pack is a nice touch. Definitely recommended.

Many thanks for your kind words about Greylag Cottage and pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were able to make the most of the wonderful bird and wildlife that North Norfolk has to offer. Will have a think about the elements where we didn't quite make a five star rating and see what we can do about them!
