Lovely wee cottage with some lovely walks in the area too. Perfectly situated for exploring North Norfolk, including the coast around Holkham and not far from Sandringham. Good for the two dogs with an enclosed garden, though the garden isn't attached, but that was fine for us. Beautifully decorated with lots of lovely touches. Perfect for a coupleRead more, though mind your head if you're tall! Hide

Lovely, cosy cottage, ideal for a couple. Separate lounge. Covid secure. Off road parking and enclosed garden. We had a very pleasant week there with our dog. As mentioned in other reviews the stairs are very steep and would be unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. However we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

This lovely cottage is in an idyllic setting and benefits private parking. You feel at home the minute you walk in. There was a welcome pack of goodies & wine upon arrival, including treats for our dog. The garden is perfect for alfresco and is secure for dogs. We had lovely walks in the fields and woodland on the doorstep. The pub opposite is veryRead more handy too! We plan to return sometime. Highly recommended. Hide

A lovely little cottage, full of character, very comfortable and welcoming. Please do note that this is definitely a two person house (plus a child's bed in second bedroom) - the photos on the website are great but give the impression of more scale! As a holiday cottage though, it's spot on - great location, garden which would be lovely in the spriRead moreng and summer and - if you bring dogs, as we did - it is very dog-friendly with secure fencing and gates. Big thanks for the welcome pack! Hide

small but cosy cottage with a pub within 2 minutes walk. The pub is not currently doing food which was a shame. The welcome pack was a nice surprise. The only negative aspect was the road running outside the cottage is very busy during the morning and evening rush hours.

The cottage is lovely and is a great location to explore the local towns. Our dogs loved the garden. Stairs are not ideal for anyone with mobility problems. No firewood was provided to us. The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable, and need updating. Parking area a bonus but very dark.

I am sure in summer this can be a pleasant stay. It is a cottage where dogs are allowed so understandably there needs to be protection but I have been in cottages that are not so evidently doggy orientated. I trust I left the cottage clean from our dog.

Charming, quaint, clean, cosy cottage and in a picturesque location. Parking space to rear of property is ideal. Lovely walks locally and situated in a prime spot for visiting other nice towns and of course, the seaside. The only problem might be, that the stairs are steep and deep with a tight curve at the bottom.
