Very clean and comfortable with large rooms and well equipped kitchen. Free logs provided for the log burner. Tea, sugar, milk and biscuits, bowl of fruit on arrival. Very comfortable beds with fresh linen and towels provided. Everything was well looked after and kept like new. Sky+ TV, DVD player, TV. Microwave, oven and hob, washing machine, washing line.

    • “We spent a very comfortable week in the cottage. The cottage was well equipped making it a home from home experience. The owners were very friendly and very attentive! Thurgarton is a small village - we found the residents to be very friendly. The village shop and the Post Office are within a five minute walk away! The whole experience was made even more special by wonderful weather and scenery. Thank you.”

    • “Spring Meadow is an ideal place to base oneself for access to North Norfolk and Norwich etc. Good parking and very large garden (shared with owners). Almost everything was there to enable us to have an enjoyable week. The owners also gave us some freshly laid eggs from their chickens! We would have no hesitation in staying there again.”

    Mrs Owen, Bath, November 2015

    Mrs Sturgess, Loughborough, October 2014

    • “We were welcomed as soon as we arrived. The owner very kindly left a jug of milk ready for that cup of tea so welcome after a journey. I know such small things but so welcome. This was my first time of using Sykes cottages and already we are looking at other cottages for next year.”

    Ms Fernandez, Crowthorne, August 2014

    • “It was in a quiet village not far from everything. The property has the most beautiful garden that is huge like a playing field. The wildlife was lovely with lots of rabbits and on the last day two deer feeding. The bungalow was like home from home.”
