Also within easy walking distance is North Norfolk Steam Railway, Leisure Centre, the beach with its lovely golden sands at low tide and cliff top walks.

One well-behaved pet is welcome so you can bring the dog too! (occasionally we have allowed two small dogs but prior permission must be obtained first)

This is a spacious house and in a very good position to be able to walk into town. It was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was provided. Don’t hesitate, this is a gem! - Paula, April 2021


about your host

Hello, I’m Janet and I have been looking after Glendalough holiday cottage since 1990.

I live with my husband Brian in a self-contained flat above the holiday cottage.  I really enjoy welcoming visitors – some for the first time and others who keep coming back for their “Sheringham fix”!  

I enjoy gardening, singing and sailing as well as just enjoying the beach here.
