This first floor apartment sleeps two people in a double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom on the outskirts of the cathedral city of Norwich in Norfolk. The Annexe is a first floor apartment attached to the owner's home in a leafy suburb of Norwich known as Thorpe St Andrew. Boasting one double bedroom with an ensuite shower room, this cottage is a romantic hideaway in the centre of a historic city. The Annexe also offers a fitted kitchen, a sitting room with dining area and a balcony overlooking the beautiful garden. The cottage also comes with a small private garden and off road parking for one car. Being so centrally located, you may never... need to drive anywhere, but if the need arises, The Annexe is perfectly located for exploring the Norfolk Broads, the glorious East Anglian countryside and the fabulous Norfolk coast.
Amenities: Gas central heating. Electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave, TV, DVD, WiFi. Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Travel cot and stairgate available on request. Off road parking for 1 car. Private small garden with furniture. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shop 1 mile, pub 2 mins walk.
Region: Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.
Town: The medieval city of Norwich is the capital of East Anglia and boasts some of the finest buildings in Britain, with two cathedrals, a Norman castle and several large houses. Norwich also offers art galleries, museums, theatres and cinemas, as well as beautiful parks and gardens. Visit its stylish pubs, cafés and restaurants and enjoy its excellent shopping facilities. Tour the city by open top bus, along cycle pathways, or walk one of its many trails and the river walk. For those wishing to relax you can spend a leisurely day on board a boat enjoying the nearby Norfolk Broads and the coast is also within easy travelling distance, offering a fun day out.
Lovely clean, comfortable, well appointed apartment with balcony overlooking beautiful garden. Few minutes walk downhill to river. Several pubs with plenty of riverside seating. Also handy for Norwich, the coast and the Broads. Short drive from local supermarkets. Pleasant helpful owners. Would thoroughly recommend.

Unfortunately our stay was cut short by an emergency at home. It was a most pleasant and convenient apartment in the owner's home on a quiet street with everything to suit our needs. We also liked the walk into Norwich and enjoyed some good local pubs for dinners. We were very sorry to leave it after a very few days and a longer stay might have added more comments. I recall that I could not get enough warm water in the bathtub to have a longed for soak. Otherwise it was splendid.

The Annex exceeded our expectations. The apartment was immaculately clean, with modern, up-to-date appliances. The sofa in the living room was exceedingly comfortable (as often they are not) and of excellent quality leather. We were treated to being the first visitors to enoy the brand new carpet that was laid the day before! The bedroom facilities were also very good with a full-size wardrobe and a very comfortable double bed suite. The gardens viewed from our first floor balcony are beautiful and just as immaculately cared for as the apartment. Even though the literature in the apartment warned that the garden was occupied by young children on occasion, we heard nothing and were never disturbed. Our hosts were extremely helpful in giving directions and making sure we had everything we needed.
We truly loved the city of Norwich with its old-world buildings, and in particular the daily fresh produce market. Watching the houseboats and children feed the swans on the river at the hamlet of Thorpe St Andrews which is the actual location of The Annexe, was fun.

The owners were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. The flat had everything we needed and it was very comfortable. The location was great. Well positioned in a quite location but with easy access to main ring road. Lots of great places to eat very close by.
A perfect base from which to see Norwich and the surrounding area.
Clean, comfy and in a terrific position.

The annexe comprises the top floor of an extension to the main house. Modern decor, very warm and cosy in deepest winter, and everything included in the price. Parking position in the gravel drive (off-street parking is a must for me)and a short walk down the hill to the main road where there are several pubs that serve terrific grub.The main road is also on a good bus route into Norwich where you can pick up bus connections to all parts of Norfolk (You can tell, i'm sure, that we have our bus passes!)

The owners were away when we arrived but the key was left exactly where we were told it would be. The apartment was spotlessly clean with a welcome pack of tea, coffe, and milk. It is very conveniently situated for the City of Norwich and access to main roads to venture farther afield. The apartment was warm and cozy and had a very homely feel to it, thanks to the choice of furnishings and decor. The heating was easy to control. Views were great, being on the first floor overlooking a beautiful garden. We even had a bird tapping on the window every morning looking for insects! When we did meet with the owners, they were very friendly and welcoming - we were very sad to leave!

Lovely area, ideally located for exploring north east Norolk. Close to excellent bus service to Norwich. Kitchen very tiny but adequate for catering for two people on a short-term basis and good places to eat close by. Otherwise quite spacious and we loved the balcony and garden. Lots of local information available.
Perfect pad for city break

Really clean and comfortable with very friendly owners. Balcony of annexe overlooks gorgeous garden, very relaxing for sitting and reading a book. We didn't have a car with us but the bus stop just a 5 minute walk away took us straight to the attractive city centre of Norwich. We found lots to explore and the flat was a welcome place to come home to in the evening. Highly recommended.
Excellent flat close to Norwich.

I stayed in this flat so that I could do my Christmas shopping in Norwich. It was a lovely flat in a good setting but just a little far to walk to with a load of shopping! The kitchen was well equiped for a flat of this size. I felt very safe and secure. I have recommended it to friends and family.
