Cromer Holiday Cottages, Norfolk
Whether you’re looking for a summer or winter break, our Cromer holiday cottages offer the perfect way to experience this famous seaside town.
Cromer is one of those seaside towns that are timeless. Although the magnificent Victorian villas maybe now are flats or hotels, you can still imagine the grandeur of the resort in it’s heyday.
Much remains of the original town, including the jewel in the crown, the Pier. Cromer Pier still has one of the last remaining end of the pier shows, which are truly wonderful. Something for everyone over the year.
Children (and adults) love the challenge of crabbing, or gillying as it’s known locally, from the sides the pier, and the annual World Crabbing Championships take place there every year.
Right at the end of the pier is the RNLI Cromer Lifeboat Station. On Sunday mornings they usually practice and it’s a chance to see the magnificent sight of the lifeboat thundering down the chute into the sea, You can get close up and personal in the lifeboat shed and the Lifeboat volunteers are always on hand to answer questions.
Cromer has a wonderful beach that stretches for miles. It has become a centre of surfing and is a perfect place to learn this skill with The Glide Surf School right the front on hand to give lessons.
The summer brings the very famous Cromer Carnival, now into it’s 50th year. The whole town participates and there is something for everyone from Dog Shows, fancy dress competitions, line dancing, live music to The Red Arrows.
The highlight of the week, that brings thousands of people to the town, is the amazing carnival parade, with a huge array of floats and costumes.
Our famous seafood!
Cromer is famous for its seafood, especially crabs. You can buy these direct from the fishermen on the beach or just pick anyone of the independent cafes in the town for a delicious crab salad or sandwich! You know it won’t be much fresher.
The town is well served with shops and independent places to eat, and of course No1 Fish & Chips on the seafront overlooks the pier and sea for fish and chips with a view.
Nearby Felbrigg Hall
Just a little way inland is Felbrigg Hall, now owned by the National Trust and well worth a visit. The grounds provide shady walks in summer and in the Autumn the beech woods are a riot of autumnal colour.
Cromer has excellent train links
Cromer still enjoys the luxury of having a railway station that links to the mainline station at Norwich in 45 minutes and then onto London and the Midlands.
