May Cottage Bed & Breakfast Information


May Cottage is located along the beautiful North Norfolk coastline in the village of Bacton. The house has been extended over the years and is now a substantial quality home and business both owned and run by your hosts, Carol and Jeff. This lovely bright and welcoming home is close to the vibrant market towns of North Walsham and Stalham. We are ideally situated in the village being just a short stroll away from a stunning sandy beach, with the added bonus of being able to hear the sounds of the sea from the back garden when the wind is blowing in our direction! For those who wish to experience the famous Norfolk Broads, it’s just 10 minutes away. There are a number of places nearby where you can hire a boat by the hour, half day or full day, e.g. Wroxham, Stalham, Potter Heigham and Horning. Nearby sea-side resorts and historic towns include: Cromer - 20 mins Sheringham - 30 mins Holt - 40 mins Norwich - 45 mins N.B. All times shown if travelling by car. There are numerous quality pubs and restaurants only a short distance away. Please note: May Cottage is a non- smoking establishment and is not suitable for children – Sorry no pets permitted - We accept payments by both debit and credit card and cash.

Sorry there is no disabled access for either 'Stalham' or 'Sheringham' rooms; both rooms are located via a short but steep staircase leading to the first floor - no lift/elevator. The 'Sandringham Suite' is located at ground floor level and maybe suitable for those who have restricted mobility; however, please do bear in mind that our driveway and paths are all laid with pea-shingle/gravel and there is two steps to negotiate on the decking leading to the front door of the holiday annexe. The rear garden also has three steps one would need to negotiate if you wish to enjoy some parts of the garden.
