Holiday Letting in Norfolk

Holiday letting guide

Why holiday let with Classic Cottages?

We may be new to the area, but we’re not new to the world of holiday cottages and our Area Manager, Amanda, has years of experience with holiday letting in Norfolk. 

Established in 1977, we have worked hard to become the holiday cottage specialists we are today, which means we are perfectly placed to put your holiday cottage in Norfolk in front of the right people. 

As a family-run letting agent that’s been named a Which? Recommended Provider three years running, our priorities are in people, not just our growing property portfolio. This is reflected in the positive feedback left by our loyal customers, as well as the strong relationships we have with our owners. 

We understand that we’re not just providing guests with a cabin in the woods or a dog-friendly cottage, we’re providing a holiday and everything that comes with it. It’s our agency expertise that keeps people returning as they know we are always here whether they need help finding the perfect cottage or somewhere amazing to visit in the area.


Your own dedicated Area Manager

To help you navigate the exciting waters of letting self-catering cottages in Norfolk, our amazing Area Manager Amanda is on hand to help you every step of the way, alongside our regional team of in-house specialists.

Amanda has lived and worked under the beautiful, big skies of Norfolk for more than 20 years. She loves exploring the stunning landscapes and coastline with her husband and dogs, Bear and Leon. 

Before joining Classic Cottages, Amanda enjoyed 25 years in customer-facing roles, from property management positions in the buoyant Norfolk property market to helping new owners find their perfect holiday home. She really enjoys guiding owners through the process of letting their Norfolk and Suffolk properties, whether they are amongst the many coastal villages with their dog-friendly beaches and beautiful sunsets or small towns with boutique shops and fine eateries.

With the Norfolk Coast National Landscape, dog-friendly beaches, RSPB reserves, country estates and world-famous wetlands, Norfolk and Suffolk are fabulous holiday destinations and the perfect location for your holiday home.



Why choose Norfolk for holiday letting?

From the expansive coast to the rolling countryside, holidays in Norfolk are popular year-round, with visitors drawn to the rich history and beautiful landscapes. With 90 miles of glorious coastline, watersports and beach days are popular in the summer months, while the Breckland and Thetford Forest pull visitors in for an autumnal display or wintry walk, allowing guests to create their dream Norfolk getaway. Perfect for family friendly holidays, Norfolk is home to an array of fun and fascinating activities and attractions, from historic houses and pretty gardens to theme parks and zoos.

From historic market towns to seaside villages, Norfolk promises countless places to settle down for a restorative stay. Visitors can soak up the idyllic scenes with a breathtaking walk or cycle ride, before returning to their welcoming cottage for an evening of local foods and relaxation.


What should I buy in Norfolk?

Due to its varied landscapes, Norfolk benefits from a range of self-catering holiday cottage options. Dog-friendly cottages in Norfolk with enclosed gardens make it wonderfully easy for people to holiday with their beloved pooch, while holiday homes with hot tubs appeal to a great number of guests, from couples to gatherings with friends.

With so much to see and do year-round, ensuring your holiday cottage is available for out-of-season holidays and short breaks is another excellent way to increase your bookings. Wood burners and open fires create a wonderfully cosy atmosphere for the cooler months.


How much can I earn?

As with a lot of our areas, a key strategy to owning a successful holiday let in Norfolk is flexibility. As popular as one or two-week holidays are, out-of-season and weekend breaks in Norfolk are just as important and offer even more opportunities for people to stay in your holiday home.

Our collection of holiday cottages is ever-growing and wonderfully varied, from luxury glamping escapes to fabulously large holiday cottages for getaways with family and friends. This means we are experts when it comes to pricing holiday lets. After a visit to your lovely Norfolk holiday home, we’ll give you a tailored estimate so you can move forward with all the information you need.
