England’s North Norfolk is known for its sweeping, white-sand beaches, characterful market towns, grand country estates and the outstanding natural beauty of the salt marshes and Broads. Perfectly placed to access all of this is Northrepp Cottage Country Hotel. Named after the small village in which it sits, it’s not far from the Victorian seaside town of Cromer (famed the world over for its delicious fresh crab).
This intimate, family-run property occupies a painstakingly restored 18th-century house. Surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and woods, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner promises utter peace and quiet. With only eight guest rooms and suites, all with their own quirky individual character, it also guarantees personal service. Add to this Visit England award-winning breakfasts, a gourmet restaurant a and cozy bar, and you have all the ingredients for a charming UK escape.
How to Get There
The staff were both friendly and helpful. We had a nice set meal which had been organised in advance and that was all dealt with very well. A nice breakfast selection although not enormous as one would expect from a small hotel. Plenty of parking. Attractive location and close to pretty village of Overstrand.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a wedding party with our 14 month old.
The hotel was ok, quaint with only 8 rooms and minimal staff. Not the facilities that we would be used to - no fridge or tea making facilities in the room, no bath so had to shower our 14 month old the best we could. Generally quite basic facilities throughout the hotel.
Breakfast served daily but no chef on the first night as only a few of us staying at the hotel and I had to request sandwiches the next day for lunch as there wasn’t any other lunch service either. However nice sandwiches were delivered to our room so that was good.
Quite a nice stay, wedding was great! But not a great hotel for facilities for smaller children.
I booked to stay at the hotel for work and have to admit it was the pictures that did it for me. I arrived at the hotel to be greated with an un staffed reception desk. Not a problem there are signs to press the bell, with two to choose from, which I did over the next 10 minutes. The sign also said if no replies please ring the number below, as I looked at my phone to do that I noticed there was no signal. After venturing around into the dining room, kitchen and bar, all apparently open but devoid of any customers at all. The night manager was very polite and attentive and evidently quite passionate about the hotel, showing us evrything in the room and the view.
The room itself seemed very nice, with its features and decor matching the period of the cottage and giving the feel of a hidden cottage hotel, unlike the brightly lit, modern features in the bar and restaurant, which could frankly be in any travelodge in the country. The room had plenty of space and in the evening looked very clean and tidy, the matress was a bit springy but nothing that prevented a reasonable nights sleep.
In the morning we noticed a bit more with the room, small spiders around the edge of the ceiling and dirty marks from what looked like a quite warn carpet. The curtains were ripped and torn, lamp shades missing and just some general ware on the room. I needed to be gone by 0830, so went down stairs at 0750, ready for breakfast starting at 0800.
