    • “A very well laid out bungalow with all amenities and situated in a quiet village location - but still within walking distance to a local pub for excellent bar meals and friendly service. Excellent and helpful hosts nearby if any info required. A good location to either head north to Norwich or south into Suffolk. This was our first trip to Norfolk and probably won`T be our last - this was an excellent choice to chill out or go visiting the local attractions. We would recommend this holiday let to anyone - superb and clean !!!”
