About Eric & Marlene Steinacker

My wife and I have lived in Norfolk nearly all our lives and know this part of Norfolk very well indeed and will be pleased to help all visitors to get the most out of their stay.

Eric & Marlene Steinacker purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Eric & Marlene Steinacker chose Snettisham

This is a lovely cottage in the friendly village of Snettisham-All the North Norfolk attractions are easy to visit from this location-yet is away from the busy part of the coast.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is comfortable and larger than similar cottages in the area and we live only about 100 yards from the cottage so know the area very well and we are at hand if any help is required.

Home from home cottage and garden

  • 4 of 5

A clean very well equipped cottage. Lots of thoughtful extras ie equipment for the kitchen, dining area and bedrooms. Very welcome home made cakes and raspberry jam. Owners are easily contacted if need be.

Location is good for local amenities ie convenience store, pub and short distance to beach. Lots of tourist attractions are within 1hr by car. Parking for one car outside property and possible more down opposite lane. Private secluded garden included. A lovely find.

Very comfortable,clean,lovely decor and garden

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage that helped make our 2 week stay in Norfolk even more enjoyable ( first visit). The cottage was very comfortable and exceptionally clean and had everything we required (lots of hangers and drawers - very important ).

We loved the home made jam,cakes and home grown tomatoes.

Thank you Eric your advice to get the train from Kings Lynn to Cambridge was great and made for a relaxing trip.

We used the cottage as a base and visited Ely,Cambridge. Bury St Edmunds,Norwich,Hickling Broad, most of the North coast inc lunch at Holkham and Wiveton Halls. We also managed the local pubs, walks and some of the beautiful beaches.

If you like crab then, Jonas fish suppliers in Cromer do a fabulous dressed one ( don't be put off that it's on on industrial estate).

Winn Cider from the car park in Well- Next- Sea is good too. I could go on but, go and explore yourselves.

Thank you Eric and Marlene.

Beautiful cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I looked at many cottages for us and our 22 month old daughter to stay in and are so pleased we chose this one!

The cottage is immaculate; it is clean, has lovely decor, and the layout and rooms sizes are great with plenty of room for us and our things. Its really easy to find and has on street parking right outside the door. There is a Co-Op about a 15 minute walk away which was handy and although the cottage is on a long road it was very quiet. The garden is also lovely and peaceful. Marlene and Eric were really helpful when booking the cottage, and even left us some yummy home made muffins and jam to welcome us! They provided a high chair and travel cot so we didn't have to bring ours, and even set the cot up for us and provided linens for it. It was the best travel cot we've used (better than our own!) as the mattress was much thicker than any others I've seen.

The location is great, we went somewhere different each day (we stayed for a week), usually within a 30 minute drive, and there were options for rainy days too. Would particularly recommend the boat trips to see the seals at Morston Quay, and our favourite day put was the Deer Safari which is in Snettisham itself! You can feed the deer by hand!

We had a fantastic week and have already recommended the cottage and area to friends.

A brilliant cottage which we highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this brilliant cottage many times and have often recommended it to our friends! The property is tastefully and comfortably furnished, with all the facilities you need to make this a real "home-from-home" on the Norfolk coast. As keen wildlife photographers we enjoy touring Britain and have stayed at countless holiday cottages, but this little gem is our favourite bolt-hole when we need a base for touring all the top birdwatching areas of North and Mid Norfolk - only a very short drive from Holme and Titchwell and well-placed for a day at Welney or Cley, in addition to Snettisham beach of course! The cottage is warm in the coldest of Winters and parking is easy right at the front door. The kitchen is very well equipped if you like to stay in and cook, with everything spotlessly clean and well-maintained. Marlene's cup cakes are a welcome part of our arrival, sometimes accompanied by her lovely home-made jam - super little touches which make this very reasonably-priced cottage outstrip lots of its more expensive counterparts! Highly recommended (as long as you don't want to stay when we do !!)

Got to be the best little house in Norfolk

  • 5 of 5

This property really does live up to what it says on the tin. Everything we needed was there and we were fortunate enough to meet the owners as we arrived early.

The property was exceptionaly clean and tidy all we had to do was unpack,plenty of storage space available.

The extra touches proves the thought that has been put into this property,the garden is a little oasis with the same care and thought as the interior.

Marlenes home made buns and jam are to die for. We found it an ideal base for visiting North Norfolk whatever the weather. We will be definnitely visiting again, excellent value for money. .
