Location & Directions

How To Find Us:

Postcode: NR12 0RS

The Walnut is in the small hamlet of Happisburgh Common, approximately 1 mile from the coast.

From the A149 Stalham – Wroxham road, take the B1159 towards Bacton. Follow signs to Happisburgh.

Just after East Ruston church on the brow of the hill, turn right down Vicarage Road and go past the internationally famous East Ruston Vicarage Gardens (well worth a visit!)  At the end of this road is a T junction, turn right here.   About 200 metres on your left, opposite the flint house (our Victoria Cottage is there) turn down the drive.  Stay on the right hand side, going past cottages and then turn right through the 5 bar gate.

“Our first time at Hidden Gem but not East Ruston Cottages.   The cottage is absolutely wonderful and has a very homely feel.  We have had a really relaxing holiday in a stunning location and Hidden Gem is like a home from home.  The beach and dunes are beautiful and the garden has been perfect for our two hounds!  A very dog friendly holiday cottage. All the extra little touches and the welcome gifts have been much appreciated!  We will definitely be back!! "

“Thank you so much for allowing us to be your first guests in Corner Cottage. My first impression was "WOW!". The cottage is amazing, you have thought of everything (even supplied fantastic weather!). The decoration is lovely, beds so comfortable. It was so nice to be able to bring the dogs so they could have a holiday with us and experience the beach for the first time."
