It was a relaxing break in a very nice part of the country. The cottage was well positioned and lived up to our expectations.

Excellent location for exploring North Norfolk. Perfect for a dog that likes walking - which ours does. Excellent country walk 5 paces from the front door. Even the weather was brilliant. Briston was a real discovery - excellent shops - friendly place.
Mr Hall, Lincoln, October 2012
Proximity to small shop and butcher. The many varied walks around and through the village which were suitable for our two dogs. Coast and larger town of Holt were within easy driving distance, meaning we were out and about every day!
