  • "Beautiful and clean and a lovely quiet place for a holiday The view from lounge window is stunning."

    . There are many beautiful walks in the area and Kings Lynn is a lovely town to explore. Note there is no bath mat or potato peeler and only one small mirror.

  • "The attic was beautifully kept if a little minimalist."

    Everything was lovely and clean. The floor had been vacuumed but unfortunately possibly not mopped as there was a few dusty footprints. We quickly located the mop ourselves and rectified this with no trouble. The decor is very lovely and clean with comfortable beds. I feel the property could use a little more storage for unpacking your clothes but we managed fine with the rail provided and out of the case as we had a spare bed as there’s 3 of us. The thing that makes this a five star stay was location as it is close to kings lynn and lots of things to do but you feel like you’re away from it all and because you are upstairs the view is stunning with bunnies running around, deer and bird life.

  • "Very warm and comfortable."

    Surprised at lack of teapot. Also had to go out on Sunday and buy J cloth, pan scourer, spare loo roll. We had taken teatowels as Sykes info suggested but expected to find the rest. No written instructions were provided. On Wednesday morning another resident drove out early and locked the gates on the main drive, so we were stuck inside! Luckily there was somebody working in the adjacent farm yard who came and opened the gates but it was a worry thereafter as we didn’t have any code. We do think the property would benefit from some drawers in the bedrooms, and a second set of crockery would make it possible to use the dishwasher instead of washing up by hand after every meal.

  • "The apartment was warm, clean and inviting it was located exactly as described although without provision of any helpful info on where to go etc we never did locate the pub which was billed as 1 mile away."

    The listing was inaccurate because it advised there were 3 tvs in the property yet in truth only one was installed…this was not an issue for us but the entry should be corrected. The kitchen lacked the provision of a teapot and a cafetière. The bed was a standard double and the main bedroom would benefit from the provision of a king size bed. Better (wooden?) hangers would lift the hanging space considerably. There is little or no storage space for suitcases. The lighting in the seating area was inadequate for reading. Overall it was a pleasant property and we enjoyed our stay.

  • "Please note, between the metal gates as you enter the property there is a metal back on the ground."

    It does not affect 4x4’s or larger vehicles but as my Mazda is low to the ground, it caused damage to my exhaust and underside. Also your listing clearly states THREE smart televisions, there was only one. We had planned to watch television in bed. We advise a bath mat is supplied as the bathroom floor can be slippery. Finally being allergic to feathers, the bedding meant a considerable lack of sleep. Overall great views, good facilities, nice location.

About the location

KING'S LYNN

Sandringham 9 miles; Snettisham 13.4 miles; Hunstanton 17 miles.

King's Lynn is a historic, medieval port dating back to the 12th century, situated on the River Great Ouse. A treasure trove for history lovers, the town boasts grand merchant houses, art galleries and museums, and the Custom House, built by Henry Bell in 1683, which is a Grade I listed building. The town retains its original winding streets and alleys, and boasts good shopping facilities, with a combination of national retailers and specialist shops, along with a selection of pubs and restaurants. Much of the surrounding Norfolk countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the West Norfolk coastline within easy driving distance. Hunstanton, in particular, is renowned for its sunsets and lovely beaches. Boat trips are available from several points along the coast, while the Norfolk Coast Cycleway runs from King's Lynn to Cromer. The impressive Visitor Centre at The Queen's fabulous country retreat, Sandringham, is also a short drive away and well worth a visit.
