HomeGillie Cottage Norfolk - Introduction

Welcome to Gillie Cottage, from the Dandelion Hideaway Collection.


We hope that Gillie Cottage becomes your ‘home from home’ during your stay. We have tried to anticipate your every need, so you will find everything for that trip to the coast; a beach bag, wind breaker, picnic hamper and rug as well as a crabbing kit! Inside the cottage there are lots of homely touches, an honesty spirits bar, a library of local information books to help you discover this beautiful area, oodles of films and listening books as well as novels and a compendium of board games. We hope you have a fabulously relaxing holiday!


Gillie Cottage is our home, whenever John and I can escape from running our dairy farm in Leicestershire, which has been in the family for over 100 years. We hope that you love it as much as we do.


In 2010 we launched The Dandelion Hideaway, offering guests a chance to experience life on the farm whilst holidaying and glamping in great style and luxury in one of our vintage chic canvas cottages, complete with en suite roll top baths. We are delighted to have won the Leicestershire Excellence Awards for the Self Catering Holiday of the Year for three years running, 2011, 2012, 2013 and have received glowing reviews on Trip Advisor, in the press and from the John Lewis Magazine and Mumsnet.


We have now extended our passion for delivering unforgettable breaks with our unique Dandelion Hideaway style to our two very special Blakeney cottages, Snowdrop Cottage and Gillie Cottage – The Dandelion Hideaway Collection.


Warmest regards,


John & Sharon
