The East Anglia region
Little Snoring is set in a very quite and peaceful part of North Norfolk. The area is well suited to Ramblers Bird Watchers & Cyclists The beautiful North Norfolk beaches such as Holkham Brancaster Wells and many more are a short drive away .Why not take your children to Wells to gilly for small crabs on The Quay or a ride on the narrow gauge railway that runs from adjacent the Harbour Office to The Pine woods and beach. Also the Wells to Walsingham Light Railway That runs from a site on The Cromer Road to Little Walsingham with is famous Shrine and many old quaint buildings. The Market Town of Fkenham is a couple of miles away with a Farmers Market with locally grown produce for sale. Pensthorp Nature Reserve well know for the Spring Watch programme filmed there is also about 2 miles away. Also Thusford with its many attractions and well known Christmas Show ( Reported to be the best show outside of the West End ) Sheringham with the North Norfolk Railway running a regular service to Holt very often pulled by a steam engine. There is so much to see and do that the only way to take some of it in is to make North Norfolk your holiday destination and have a holiday to remember .

"Great stay at The Forge"
My husband, dog & I had a lovely few days here, the welcome from Sue and Chris was wonderful, thanks again for the biscuits for us and the doggie treats for Dougal! With a roaring wood burner and cosy range cooker the Forge is a cute little escape from it all, the cottage was warm and welcoming. Perfectly positioned for exploring, the only slight downside was no village pub (not your fault Sue and Chris!) but if you walk about 10 mins round the corner you will come across the Green Man which is like being in someone's front room (slightly weird) and it does fantastic food! If you are looking for a warm welcome and a quirky character place to stay then you should stay here! PS the mechanical stairs are fun!
Thank you for choosing to stay with us at The Quirky Forge we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to see you again

"A really lovely property in a beautiful location that I thoroughly recommend"
we had a lovely weekend. The property was perfect, lots of areas to visit if you can tear yourself away for this Old Forge. The pets came to and were at home staight away, they enjoyed the walks as we did. It's great for exporing Norfolk and the lovely city of Norwich. The owners certainly looked after us and were kind and friendly. The property was delightful, it was spotlessly clean had everything you needed to make the stay fantastic. The weather was wet and windy but the thought of being able to go out and return to this lovely warm and welcomming little home was great. I have booked another break and can see this becomming a much looked forward to regular place to be. I thoroughly recommend this wonderfull place.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments so glad you enjoyed your stay at our "Quirky Forge". Look forward to you next visit.
