This cottage is one of the best we have ever been to. It is very comfortable and so thoughtfully equipped. The sunroom is a real bonus -- great for watching the partridges and other birds. Lovely peaceful location but convenient for visiting places of interest.

It was a lovely cottage, the location and the view was amazing. If there was any walkways next to the cottage would have been better.

This is our fifth time at Southmill Cottage, We just love the peace & quite. Fakenham just a few minutes away for all our needs. Just hope that we will be able to climb the stairs if we come again.

Reviewed by Chris, 26th April 2019

We have stayed in many cottages over the years but have to say this is truly the cleanest and best equipped one we have ever stayed in. The owner was there to greet us on arrival day and left contact numbers in case we had any problems. For us the location was ideal, we loved the peace and quiet and watching the local wildlife, but a car is requireRead mored should you wish to tour the area. Nice touch was that all the welcome goodies were local. Hide
