Tucked snugly away in a peaceful area of the village at the end of a cul-de-sac, Poppy & Wills is a cosy Victorian, carrstone semi-detached cottage which has recently been refurbished offering comfortable accommodation for couples, singles or a small family. It is light and airy with a bright ambiance throughout, plus electric heating, making it a perfect bolthole at any time of year. Being in a quiet situation, it will could attract writers or those seeking a refuge away from busy life who may require more that a week's stay, especially in quieter months. Rental can be negotiated for long stays.

Local shops including small supermarket are within easy reach of the village as are pubs/restaurants. The beach is a minutes’ drive and is popular for water sports. More details below.

There is off road parking for one medium car at the rear down a private lane access and street parking to the front in the cul-de-sac. Both the enclosed gardens are small and neat with side gate/pathway to the rear garden. The rear garden is totally enclosed and is ideal for children to play and for sitting out enjoying the summer sunshine. There is a small covered pond just outside the back door (this will be eventually removed).

Very handy for exploring this beautiful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Snettisham is only 4 miles from the popular resort of Hunstanton and 11 miles from historic port of Kings Lynn where there are good public transport links from North and the South by train or bus. If you don’t want to stay amidst the hustle and bustle of the coast, then this property and village is ideal. The Farm Park at the back of the village is very popular with visitors all year.

2022 First booking

By Mr P on 15-Mar-2022

February 2022 - Mr P - "We are fairly familiar with the area and we came to Snettisham to see the nature reserves featured in BBC's Winter Watch. Unfortunately our visit coincided with the arrival of storms Dudley, Eunice and Franklin but we kept safe and warm. Bird watching was a challenge! However we had a great time at Poppy and Will's house which provided a great base for easy access to the beaches of Snettisham (RSPB), Heacham and Hunstanton as well as Titchwell (RSPB) and Brancaster on the North Coast. The house was very comfortable and provided everything we needed. Sandra gave us all the assistance we needed. Highly recommended. Many thanks for our stay"
