Lovely well presented peaceful place to stay.
The cottage is beautiful and has everything you could need. The owners have thought about presentation and the gardens and the cottage are kept immaculate. It’s lovely to just sit and watch the world go bye whilst the birds are singing. The only negative thing for me and my friend is getting in and out of the bath/ shower, it’s a little too high for a short person with arthritis. I would definitely recommend this place.

The best rented cottage ever!
This is by far and wide, the cleanest and best equipped place i have ever stayed, it is so beautiful, and so peaceful. the nearby town of Fakenham is just 2.5 miles away, and seems to have every shop you could want and need. Each North Norfolk town is within easy reach, and lovely scenery driving to them, it is definitely somewhere i will be coming back to.

A fantastically equipped cottage in an idyllic location..
A fantastically equipped cottage in an idyllic location, with some thoughtful touches (hand picked tomatoes) putting the icing on the cake! It provides easy access to any numbers of activities in North Norfolk but also a peaceful haven for those who want to get away from it all. A large garden which almost encroaches into the surrounding countryside is an added bonus, as are the beautiful sunsets through the front window - we look forward to coming back some day..

Perfect get away
The cottage is situated in the middle of nowhere surrounded by wildlife and trees. There was nothing missing in the cottage to spoil our stay. Extremely well equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting room and conservatory. I would highly recommend this holiday cottage.

A complete delight
This cottage – a two-bedroom semi-detached – is a complete delight. It has recently been refurbished, tastefully and to a high standard, so everything is smart and fresh and it has all mod cons. But little quirky touches give it a real cottage feel and a great ambience. A real home from home with everything you need. Oh, and it’s spotlessly clean. The location is properly rural, with views over fields and open country on all sides.Very peaceful and relaxing. You can sit in the conservatory and watch the birds, and children can play in the large garden. Yet it’s only a ten-minute drive into Fakenham, with its restaurants, pubs, shops and supermarkets. It’s a great base for seeing North Norfolk. We stayed two weeks and did the entire north coast, from King’s Lynn in the west to Cromer in the east. The beaches are amazing. We also visited several National Trust properties and the RSPB reserve at Titchwell Marsh. Just one small note of caution. The stairs are a little steep – though there’s a loo on the ground floor, so you’re not up and down them all the time – and to use the shower you have to step over the side of the bath. We’re getting on in years and neither of us had any problem. But if you tend to struggle a bit, you should at least be aware. However, if you’re reasonably mobile you won’t do better than Southmill Cottage. If you plan to holiday in North Norfolk, you should book it now.

The perfect cottage in the perfect location.
Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Very clean and well equipped and all the little extras made it a real home from home, especially having 3 young children. Perfectly situated to explore North Norfolk. Would definately book again. Highly recommend.
