“First class accommodation in Sherringham which is a very clean and tidy town. The accommodation is only a few meters away from the sea front and close to all local amenities.”

Alan J

“Excellent location and beautifully decorated cottage. Two Smart TVs were a welcome addition which most cottages don't have. A welcome pack was much appreciated together with the comprehensive summary of things to see and do within the local area.”


“Lovely cottage, the lounge, well laid out with two nice comfortable sofa's , coffee tables ,and good dining table ,this was a lovely room to come back to when we had been out ,so relaxing . spacious kitchen well equipped all we needed.. Upstairs bedroom and bathroom all laid out nicely, great views of the sea., Being over 80 we did find the top of the stairs abit tricky but just had to take extra care ., We did enjoy our relaxing stay .”

Pamela H

“We had a really enjoyable stay in Scrimshaw Cottage. Very comfortable furniture and beds and all very well furnished. The kitchen was modern and very well equipped. The situation was brilliant, being only a few yards from the sea wall, pubs/restaurants and the main shopping streets. Thank you.”

Mary L

“Fabulous location, fabulous cottage. Cleanliness was first class, very cosy, bed so comfortable. The bath!!! Never been in a bath so deep!!! No complaints whatsoever. We will be back! Nice little welcome pack, thank you

G Roe

“As usual fab holiday in Sherringham & stay in Scrimshaw Cottage - our 4th in this property. The cottage is well positioned for the beach, shops, cafes & pubs and is a great find - good value & really comfy 😎
Unfortunately this will be our last stay in this cottage - the change over day has changed to a Friday & this is totally unsuitable, meaning an extra day of leave as unable to get to Sherringham after work. A real shame as we love this little cottage.

Susan C

“Beautiful cottage and ideal location. Only slight downside are the steep stairs but they were mentioned in the advertisement.

Trevor B

“A very stylist cottage by the sea. Comfortable and well equipped. Great for a short break. We'll be back.”

Patricia N

“This is our third visit to Scrimshaw Cottage, it is fast becoming our go to place for a few days away. I can't recommend it highly enough, it's spotlessly clean, nicely furnished, a super bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Apart from being right next to the sea, it's handy for the shops, eateries and walks along the promenade.”

Steven B

“We chose Scrimshaw Cottage for it's location , beautiful sea views . Perfect for easy access to local pubs, shops etc ”

Brian T

“Our second stay at Scrimshaw Cottage, and as last year, just perfect! Lovely and clean and everything you need supplied. Couldn’t be better in our opinion.”

Robert M

“Once again a truly lovely stay. The cottage has a welcoming air about it and is so close to the seaside and shops that my husband and I love it.

Ann v

“Scrimshaw cottage was an ideal base for a weeks holiday. It's clean, has a very large comfy bed and sofas. Very well equipped throughout. Also very good heating and wi-fi. We were very impressed and will almost certainly return. Thanks!!”

Nic H

“We love Sheringham and Scrimshaw Cottage is ideal as a "2nd home". Hoping to return after Christmas. Ann and Mike ”

Ann V

“We had a lovely stay at Scrimshaw Cottage, very clean, well equipped and ideal situation making it the perfect holiday and the sun shone all week, could not ask for more”

Robert M

“An Electrical appliance broke down and was replaced within an hour or two. Also an item in the bathroom was quickly replaced at the same time. I did find the bathroom cold, but that might have been due to the cold August weather. The bed was very comfortable, and the ability to see the sea from it an added an extra bonus ! ”


“Lovely clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage just a stones through from the sea and the High Street with plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants. This was our second stay here and it didn't disappoint, we did manage to get a week with glorious weather which was a bonus. The only thing that lets it down for us is that we are used to a shower and whilst there is a lovely bath it only has a hand held shower.

Michael D

“Lovely cottage, well situated and full of character. Plenty of shops and entertainment in easy reach.”

Anthony S

“Lovely holiday in this warm cottage. Will certainly stay again but with sunshine this time! Be nice to get free parking as my husband is disabled.”

Rita W

“We wanted a base near to shops and amenities, but also from where we could travel to the Broads and other attractions. Scrimshaw Cottage is within yards of the beach, which views of the sea from the its windows. Everything in the cottage was excellent, it was spotlessly clean, we had everything we needed and more, the only exception being a hairdryer. The furnishings were a high standard and I had seven very good night's sleep. Lovely eateries nearby, of which we used several.”

Steven B

“This is a lovely cottage in a brilliant location. It is really close to the town with its many restaurants, pubs and shops. It is a lovely place to stay for a couple and has wonderful views of the sea. The walks along the promenade filled many a happy hour. As a bonus, we were blessed with fantastic sunny weather, which made this even more special

Marian B

“*Large cottage for two people
*Bed extremely comfortable
*Good kitchen facilities
*Beautiful bathroom
*Excellent location - but the location is a busy seaside town

Rebecca F

“The cottage is lovely, great location and very clean. You really do have a sea view from every room.”

Maria S

“The cottage was in an ideal location, close to the beach and local amenities. Every window had a sea view which was spectacular. Scrimshaw was a lovely cottage full of character and charm. There was a bit of noise from the car park and pub but that was to be expected. A over head shower would of been a nice touch in the bathroom. The courtyard outside was ideal to sit and enjoy the sun and sea air. ”

Sally W

“Restful within sight and sound of the sea.A calm and relaxing little cottage which we hope to visit again at the end of August.

Ann V

“Lovely week at Scrimshaw Cottage. My wife and I - both retired - spent a really fantastic week at Scrimshaw Cottage, our first holiday since lockdown. I very much hope this review provides some useful insights into what to expect in having such a lovely time. We'd seen the photos of the cottage on the Keys site and are delighted to report that it was as gorgeous as we'd hoped from those pictures, whilst the wine and milk was an added bonus: many thanks!! We also knew from the pics that there wasn't a shower: the bath was lovely, but we felt a shower would have made the cottage idyllic for a couple.
We have already been recommending Scrimshaw to our friends!!!”

Michael K

“Scrimshaw Cottage - Long Weekend in September. We stayed here for 3 nights in early September. Great location overlooking sea wall and close to town and sea-front amenities. Kitchen looks towards the sea and has everything you need for a holiday cottage; lounge area was slightly dark with dark furniture, but overall we found Scrimshaw Cottage to be ideal for a short break.


“Scrimshaw Cottage is in a brilliant location, close to the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants of Sheringham. For location, it is probably one of the best we have ever stayed in. It is a lovely cottage, perfectly set up for two people and we really enjoyed our stay there. The sea views are lovely, even on a bad day. Although there is no parking, it is not a problem as there is free roadside parking a five minute walk away or you can buy a weekly pass on the car parks for £28. The car park right next to the cottage doesn't offer weekly passes (but the machine always seemed to be broken - we didn't risk parking there!)
There are lots of good places to eat and drink in Sheringham and plenty of takeaways too. It is a lovely place to spend time and we would love to go back there in the future.”

M Bamber


“We did enjoy our holiday for a 3rd visit to Scrimshaw Cottage and many years of holidaying in Sheringham - See you next year.


“Very comfortable overall. A very homely little cottage to stay in.”
