Very comfortable well appointed cottage in a great location for exploring the beautiful Broads. The owner was very approachable and willing to address any minor issues we experienced. We especially appreciated the "welcome pack" as we had missed the turn off to the supermarket on our approach to the property. The welcome pack enabled us to have a cRead moreup of tea on our arrival and enjoy a nice breakfast when we woke up the next day. They had also incuded a bottle of wine in the welcome pack! Hide
