Welcome to Whistle Stop, a beautiful, family friendly cottage sleeping up to six people in three bedrooms, and welcoming up to two dogs free of charge. It is situated in the village of Aldborough, which overlooks the village green and cricket pitch, and has a pub and village shop just a few steps away. Aldborough is one of Norfolk’s hidden gems, an attractive village with plenty of walks and cycle routes nearby. Cricket is played on the green throughout summer, and you are only a short drive away from so many attractions.

Whistle Stop is well placed for exploring Norfolk, with the popular resort of Cromer just 8 miles away. Local National Trust properties to visit include Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Hall and Sheringham Park and the lovely Georgian town of Holt with its numerous independent shops, great food hall, cafe culture, antique shops and art galleries is a spot not to miss. Sandy picturesque beaches are easily accessible all along the coast, with resident seals at Blakeney Point. You can hire a boat for the day and explore the vast waterways of the famous Broads or visit the beautiful city of Norwich with it’s Cathedral, shops, and historic buildings just 40 minutes away.

Whistle Stop is a characterful cottage built in 1886 .There is an excellent village pub which serves food and a shop with Post Office as well as a children's play area on the far side of the green, making the property perfect for couples or a family holiday.

Stunning Cottage

By LM on 28-Feb-2023

We use Air B & B a lot and this was one of the best houses we have ever stayed in. The house was clean, homely and not over-cluttered. Comfortable beds and everything you need in the kitchen. Communication from the owners was pitched at just the right level and we would recommend the place very highly to any one thinking of going there. Great local pub and a friendly village to base yourself for a week or so.

Whistle Stop Cottage

By Ian on 08-Oct-2022

This has to be one of the most impressive cottages and value for money Ive stayed in. We have a long tradition of staying in dog friendly cottages around the country as this is one that ticks all the boxes. The location on the village green just makes it the perfect getaway from it all peaceful holiday home. The locals are extremely friendly and walking our two Airedales on the local beaches and few beers in the local pub coupled with the added colours of autumn made for a special week Oct 22

Lovely cottage

By Emma on 30-Jul-2022

We had a wonderful week at Whistlestop. The lovely cottage was situated on a village green with a very handy local shop. The cottage had everything we needed for the family and dog and was well situated for a holiday exploring both broads and beaches. The owner was very responsive to any questions. We would love to return another time!
