Kind words from our guests.

The property was fantastic, clean, warm, well equipped and ideally situated. Definitely going back again!!

Hayley, Oct 2020

We really enjoyed the space and comfort of the property, just a shame we couldn’t stay longer this time. They left a freshly made cake which was amazing.

Daniel, Sept 2020

Cottage was down a very quiet lane, with two other cottages next to it. The cottage was perfect. Decorated to a very good standard, with a very well provisioned kitchen. Comfortable lounge area and good sized dining table. Very comfortable beds (the double was one of the best i’ve slept in) and nice bathrooms. Small outside lawn area for the dogs to run around. Lovely walk into the center of Cromer (about 45mins). We ordered food from the local Thai take-away which was excellent. Already booked for next Easter, which is high praise indeed. Highly recommended. We can see this cottage become our base for future holidays in the future.

Very well equipped and comfortable. Lovely walk along footpath into Cromer. Rural location but near all local facilities.
