Quality quiet Country Cottage
Left on 12/02/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | John Bott
An excellent country cottage set in a secluded spot with all the main amenities for a weeks holiday. The very friendly and helpful owners give you a welcome and answer any questions regarding the area and the facilities. The Cottage is well equipped and finished to a high standard; with wooden floors throughout. As a Fisherman, the Owners provided me with all the information I needed to fish the nearby River Wensum; the free sections and the meadows I could roam. The rural setting is perfect to see old Churches and Mills in lovely village situations. This is a place to unwind and relax if you are a town dweller or feel at home if you are, like me, a rural dweller. A first class holiday situation for any weather.
Spacious and total comfort
Left on 12/06/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Mrs A
We were greeted in a friendly yet non-invasive way and had a nice selection of groceries left for our use. The cottage looked new and pristine and we felt at home and comfortable straight away with many books and DVD for our use if required.
We had a very peaceful stay and enjoyed the shared garden and the local wildlife, especially seeing deer out of the window while having breakfast.
The cottage is in an ideal position for fishing and walking.
I would certainly recommend this to all. My thanks to the caring owners too.
First class accommodation

This is a fantastic holiday cottage; its photographs do not do it justice! From outside and from the details shown it looks quite tiny - it is beautiful; very spacious with everything you could ask for and, if it wasn't there we only had to ask - not that we needed to.
The location was quiet yet easily accessible with good road links to the many local towns, villages and attractions. The area is crammed with things to do, so much so that we ran out of time in one week! The owners were very helpful and knowledgable about their area without being intrusive in any way. We could not find any fault and would love to go back again soon.

The owners were most welcoming with many unexpected extras. Nothing was too much trouble for them,they were most accomodating. The cottage had everything, and more, that you would need for your stay. The location was perfect for touring the area, whether you wanted a trip to the north or east coast or to the many places of interest inland. There were also many lovely walks around the lanes/roads nearby to unwind in the evenings after a day sightseeing. The cottage is perfect for two who like to be able to see open fields whilst having breakfast. We could not think of anything negative to say about our stay, only that it was not long enough, but that is the fault of us not the cottage and its owners.

First class accomodation

Both myself and my husband were extremely pleased with the accomodation. It was impeccably clean, well laid out in beautiful surroundings. Nothing was too much for the owners and they even laid on some provisions. We had full use of the washer/dryer & freezer at no extra cost. I cannot fault this property at all. I have slight walking difficulties but found this cottage to be ideal.

Our stay here in August was our 2nd stay at this wondeful cottage.We were so impressed the 1st time we came back. The cottage was exceptionally clean,the furnishings lovely. We had the full use of a utility room with washer ,dryer,clothes maiden,freezer. The situation of the Little Lodge was very pleasant with lots of wildlife on the doorstep. A good centre for visiting the Norfolk coast and not far from the Park and Ride for the city of Norwich,we even ventured into Suffolk visiting Bressingham Gardens.
Best of all were the owners who did everything to make our stay enjoyable. The welcome pack was extensive.Replacement towels and bed linen were readily available. There was lots of DVDs to watch in the evenings.
We would highly recommend this cottage.
