Welcome To Our Selection of Holiday Cottages

If you want to have the best cottage holiday possible in Downham Market, we suggest a few key items to take along. Rainproof clothing and a light umbrella should be the first things to pack. The rain only comes when you are not prepared.

We think a good book is another essential. Not just an opportunity to catch up on your reading, but also to pass the time waiting for everyone else to get themselves ready, or wait out the rain! And then we always make sure we have good supplies with us when we arrive so that we can sit down and have a cup of coffee and perhaps a piece of cake before we start that boring unpacking! We find it really hard to decide which type of cottage we like best. Generally we just enjoy going away! 

Escape To Downham Market

In Downham Market, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. July and August are usually Norfolk school summer holidays. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. It's becoming less likely to book the best cottages last minute, but by no means impossible. We recommend you give it a try. 

More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.

All About Cottages

Before you book that 16th Century thatched roof cottage with low ceilings, you may want to ask the tallest people in your group/family whether the olde worlds charm outweighs the pain of bumping heads on beams. If you're travelling to Downham Market in a group of single people, are there enough beds in the bedrooms? 

Many Downham Market visitors like to bring their pets (normally dogs) when they go on holiday. If the description of the Downham Market cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking. 

Wherever you stay, whether it's in Downham Market or elsewhere, we hope you have a fabulous holiday! 

Cottages For Holidays

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Downham Market. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

And it also gives the freedom of eating out without needing to reorganise any plans in your accomodation. You don't need to tell anyone, just sit down and order! A large number of our visitors like to use their stay as an opportunity to just put their feet up, gaze at the scenery, take an afternoon nap, and enjoy a nice home cooked meal. Just taking it easy in Downham Market. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
