Hunstanton named as top spot by holiday rental company

Have your say

Hunstanton has been named as a best seller by a company which rents out holiday cottages.

The resort has come in at number nine in the top ten list of most popular spots in the UK booked in January of this year through cottages4you.

The company has 62 cottages for rent in Hunstanton and between October and December it sold more than 250 bookings for these.

cottages4you, which has 13,000 holiday cottages and villas to rent in the UK, Ireland, France and Italy, is celebrating its busiest ever winter period having booked more than 170,000 holidays, which represents a 24 per cent year-on-year increase.

Third on its list is Happisburgh in Norfolk, while Whitby was top of the list with Windermere in second place.

According to another property specialist,, Norfolk has become one of the top places in the UK for visitors this year. It expanded into the area last year and has seen a large increase in bookings in the county.

Simon Morris, director of the business, said: “We’ve taken on new properties which have broken records in terms of how quickly they have booked. Being new to the area we didn’t quite realise how popular Norfolk was. Having visited the area myself several times I can see why. It’s certainly a great place to live and there is so much to do for holidaymakers.”
