Sherbet Cottage is a beautifully presented holiday cottage situated in a quiet road in the delightful village of South Creake, close to Burnham Market, Holkham and the North Norfolk coast.
Formerly a sweet shop (hence the name) the cottage has undergone a total renovation and now provides an extremely high standard of accommodation.
The sitting room has the benefit of a log burner for the cooler months and a pretty enclosed garden running down to the stream for sun downers in the summer.
The spacious kitchen is perfect for entertaining with a good-sized table and well-equipped cupboards.
In a little more detail, the ground floor:
The kitchen is spacious, a real heart of the home and very well equipped with dining table and chairs. Large American fridge freezer, electric oven and hob. Belfast style sink. Dishwasher, washing machine. Shuttered window. Wooden floor.
The sitting room is elegant and extremely well furnished room with comfortable sofa and chairs. Coffee table. Wood burning stove. Large screen TV with Freeview, DVD player. WiFi. Side tables and lamps. Original and local artworks. Wooden stairs lead to first floor:
King sized bed, chest of drawers, mirror. Side tables and lamps. Built in wardrobe.
Double bed, bedside tables and lamps. Mirror, built in wardrobe, chest of drawers
Contemporary tiled bathroom with bath and shower, separate shower cubicle, with large chrome rainfall style shower. WC and basin.
The garden is separate from the cottage just down the side of the house. A gate leads to a secret garden with a lawn, borders, woodpile and garden furniture.
Right at the bottom is a stream complete with ducks!
Parking is on the street and generally never an issue.
We stayed here for 7 nights, and were really pleased with the cottage. It was very clean, comfortable and very stylish, although we didn’t use it much the rear garden with the stream would be a perfect place to relax at the end of the day. There is no allocated parking, but it wasn’t a problem as you can tuck the car in tight right outside the cottage.
Good location for North Norfolk coast, but a shame the only pub in the village has now closed. Very well equipped kitchen, and both bedrooms were lovely, we were hard pushed to decide which was the master bedroom as they were both good sized. I would return to Sherbert Cottage, as we were very pleased with our choice.

South Creake is a lovely village just a couple of miles from Burnham Market. There is a lovely village green in the centre with a play park for children and tennis courts. Sir John Betjeman loved the church here.
The village is home to The Yorke Trust, founded in 1985 to promote the arts and particularly music among young people.
A more recent development, The North Norfolk Music Festival, presents concerts by international musicians in the church. Creake Abbey is close by where they have a Farmer’s Market on the 1st Saturday of each month.
