The owners of Crincle Cottage have worked extra hard, intensively refurbishing it to turn it into a welcoming and comfortable holiday home. The fitted kitchen and a woodburning stove add to its comfort and charm.
Its’ location in The Street, Horsey is ideal! It is just a 2 minute walk to the Nelsons Head, which is very dog friendly and has lots of super reviews for its food. It has a rather famous annual beer festival each summer and if you don’t fancy going out to eat in the evening, they also do a takeaway.
It’s just a short 15-20 minute walk from the cottage along a lovely country bridle path, right onto Horsey beach. This is a much quieter part of the beach than Horsey Gap so there are often a lot more seals to see! There is a public car park just down the road where people pay to leave their cars then walk up to this point to see the seals.

Reactive Friendly Award Details
Crincle Cottage is a 3 star Reactive Friendly Pack Holidays cottage. Here are the reasons why, but also more importantly, what aspects of the cottage may not be suitable for your reactive. Crincle Cottage is situated in a very quiet area, off the beaten track and at teh start of a private farmland road.
The fences are all 5 feet high (some solid fencing and some hedged with wire fencing in front.) The lowest point is a 5 feet paddock gate which has timber at the bottom of the gate to stop diggers. There is a house next door (which is rarely occupied and no animals next door). There are fields to front and back and up till now, we have had no livestock in the rear field and some cattle in the front field (which cannot be seen from the garden if cars are parked in the driveway). There are several quiet walks around the village and Horsey Staithe area and a well worn bridle path down to the beach (which is at the far side of Crincle Cottage).
Please note in pupping season and in peak summer season, that bridle path will be busier with people wishing to reach Horsey beach. There is a shared fence between Crincle and next door, however it is 6 feet high and sold fencing. To date, no noise has been heard from the neighbours side. The garden does not look into another property.
Please note that as this is a very rural location, there may be on occasion, the slight possibility of hearing a bird scarer. We have had no reports of bird scarers at any time in the past 4 years, but given the location (and the possibility of crop rotation) we cannot rule it out for future.
Location & Directions
2 Crincle Cottage The Street, Horsey, NR29 4EL
Or – From A149 at Stalham, take the turning onto “Old Market Road” signposted towards Ingham, Lessingham and Sea Palling and follow the signs to Sea Palling. Follow the road past Sea Palling to Horsey, passing Waxham Barn. Horsey village is a few miles further along the road. (A village sign will welcome you). As you come into the village there is a sharp bend to the right and a left hand turning on the bend. Take the left hand turn (you will see a sign for the Nelsons Head) and follow the road down past the Nelsons Head. The road will bend to the right after a few hundred yards and at the bend there are two houses. Crincle Cottage is the right hand side house.
What a lovely cosy cottage to welcome us after a 4 hour drive in the freezing fog. The Christmas lights and tree were on, an extra welcome surprise. The cottage was exactly as described and just 15 minutes from the beach which was our main reason for coming at this time of year – the seals!!
Had some super (albeit very muddy!!) walks from the door. A visit to North Walsham to visit a friend and some interesting shops there and a lovely market every Thursday. Well worth a visit to Blickling Estate, although only a few rooms open due to lockdown but the grounds were lovely.
Don’t forget to pop by the local church with it’s round tower and thatched roof.
Wonderful stay as usual Gail and girls. xx Went far too quickly Thank you so much
Thank you so much for a lovely stay. We have had a great time and the dogs loved it even more! We saw so many seals and visited the beach at Sea Palling, also. That you for the homemade goodies!
We had a mixed bag of weather, but this didn’t stop us enjoying some very nice walks around Horsey. We loved seeing the seals perfect distance fromt he cottage, and quiet location with lovely views. Really good fish and chips from Winterton fish bar and tasy rolls and cookies from Ingham Farm Shop, We found the cottage cosy, good heating and hot water and the perfect run around for our little poooch.
Our first Pack Holidays and not our last❣️
Had a lovely weekend break here in Crincle Cottage. The views from the cottage are amazing, we were lucky enough to see deer across the fields.
The walk down the footpath to Horsey beach is worth doing to see the seals, it is quiet and the seals are undisturbed.
Katie (Greyhound) and Bobby (Black Lab) also enjoyed their stay. They had a paddle at Sea Palling and watched the seals at a safe distance on Horsey Beach.
All in all a very peaceful well deserved break for us all!
Had a lovely time, Winterton waws our favourite beach, and most afternoons went to Horsey to watch the seals.. Also enjoy Bacton woods with the dogs.
Thank you so much, we had a really lovely restful stay (apart from the weather). Beautiful walks to the beach – lovely ome from home – Perfect.
We have had a great week at Crincle Cottage. Found the beautiful thatched church in the village. Went to Wells for the first time, lovely beach. The weather has been fab all week. Lovely peaceful place. Dogs loved it too!
The best part of our holiday was being able to get to the beach (walking not driving) every day! We loved the seals and the quiet beach – so Megs the labrador could run and run and run….. we enjoyed the quiet garden 🙂
We are looking forward to staying with you again next year 🙂
Big Thank yous
Had a fantastic stay at Crincle Cottage!
Extremely quiet and relaxing!
Best fish EVER at the Nelson’s Head and loved the Dunes Cafe at Waxham Barn, was so lovely too!
Thank you Gail!
We will be in touch soon to book another!
Would recommend The Nelson Head for food, wine and beer and good company.
Thank you for making our weekend so special and accepting our 4 fur babies. We will be back, if just for the cake!!!
Our favourite thing of the holiday has been our very own spring watch. We’ve seen so many birds including a flock of 9 cranes, Reed Buntins, and Marsh harriers. We have seen deer opposite the house and in local fields, of course the seals have been wonderful. We enjoyed dinner at the Nelsons Head, tea at Poppylands café. Had 3 boat trips, the nature trip from the windmill at Horsey was our favourite. this is a beautiful part of Norrfolk so restful
Thanks for the goodies Gail
Hope to be back again soon
We were lucky with the weather so most of our time at the cottage was spent in the large garden. The paved area with table and chairs was perfect for our meals.
We had visitors and used the cottage to full capacity for 2 nights and everyone said how lovely the cottage was with regards to size, decor, cleanliness and comfort.
We enjoyed visiting neighbouring beaches and the broads, all within a short drive from the cottage.
I would highly recommend The Ingham Swan for anyone who is after a celebratory drink or just wanting a special treat. The food is amazing!
The cottage and garden are very dog friendly and safe for large and small dogs. The location was perfect for walking and road access to whatever we fancied doing on the day.
Would we go back? Dogs and humans unanimously say Yes!
The only downside was that we weren’t staying longer and the welcome cake didn’t last long with it being so delicious !
