About Naomi Francis
My late father bought this property shortly after the second world war when he came out of the army. It was to be the family home for his wife and new baby [me!], and has been in the family ever since. It has seen many, many visitors over the years and I think that is why it has a nice and happy atmosphere. Some of the visitors here have loved Norfolk so much they have decided to live here permanently. The property dates back to the 18c and was once a village brewery, later being converted to three small fishermens' cottages and a shop overlooking the road, but now two dwellings. It gives me a lot of pleasure to be able to contribute to the happy memories of a really good holiday [ often very much needed], and to meet so many nice and interesting people.
Why Naomi Francis chose Happisburgh
This property always has memories for me. It adjoins the main building - the home where I grew up, and where I live now, after returning to it after thirty six years. I have fond memories of the old fisherman and his wife ( Ben and Minnie) who used to live in the cottage in the early 50's before it was a holiday home, and their daughter Pauline who would kindly amuse and play with me when I was around six years old and she was fifteen or so! People still visit me now and again ( and ask to have a walk around!) to see and remember the place they stayed at on holiday as a child,some who came back year after year when I was growing up.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Cottage is a very old property, originally a small village brewery both here and the main building dating back to around 1780, and I think the atmosphere matches it! Many guests tell me they always sleep well here and they can relax, and It's quiet. - well away from the normal pace of life. It is also a very good location for a holiday. Plenty of country walks available ( with brochures provided to help you choose a route) very near to the beach, and many attractions, whatever your interest, only a short trip in the car away. The beautiful Norfolk Broads and the river and all it has to offer only four miles away. A trip to see the seals at Horsey beach - 15 mins: by car, The fabulous East Ruston Gardens, 30 acres with tea shops and plant stalls, with the celebrity gardener Alan Grey only one mile away. Hickling nature reserve is only 15 mins: by car, and a lovely visit for nature lovers and bird watching. Wroxham Barns only 20mins: by car too. Feedback from talking to guests tells me that many families and couples, although they have complete privacy like the fact that someone is always available should they have any questions, or if there is a problem. We take pride in giving a personal and tailored service to make guests' stays very happy and memorable, and to keep rental rates as low as possible. Guests may contact owner at any time if there is anything they would like to discuss about their holiday, or any special requirements they may have. We are pleased to be of help. Please note we do not accept bookings exceeding one week.
