  • "This was among the very best properties that we have stayed in."

    We instantly felt the love and attention the owners had gone to make sure everything was perfect for us. We knew we were in for a lovely week when we opened the cake tin left for us and found delicious cupcakes, the wonderful smell alone made us smile. We enjoyed lovely walks from the cottage and felt we were not too far from the coast, the Broads and Norwich. The Old Rectory Coach House always gave us a warm hug when we retuned after a day exploring. Thankyou

  • "We usually book with Sykes and have stayed at a number of excellent properties."

    By far The Old Rectory is the best property we have stayed at. Extremely comfortable, friendly hosts, in the country but not far from main roads to visit Norfolk. Nothing to do with the property but would advise against taking car into centre of Norwich! Ended up in pedestrian walkways with no option to turn around. Use park and ride or bus.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback, how wonderful to hear that you found our property the best you have stayed in with Sykes so far, that makes us very proud. Best wishes Rachel & Grenville Property Owner

    We were welcomed by Rachel and Grenville and their lovely friendly dog. Once inside the property we found it very clean and comfortable, the beds were a delight to sleep on. We visited many places Southwold being our favorite, and if like us being a bit older we could use our bus passed to go into Norwich (do wear comfy shoes) which has a very big shopping center. We would certainly book this property again in the future. Sandra, Robert and Lynn.

    Very useful information available within the cottage on local places worth visiting. A lovely clean very well equipped place with very nice decor. Highly recommended as a lovely quiet place to stay. Had two outings on the broads - saw an otter on one trip then a trip on a sailing wherry on Barton Broad.

    The owners Grenville and Rachel made us feel very welcome, a lovely cake was waiting for us on our arrival. We had glorious weather all week which was a real bonus. We visited many places during our week’s stay. Norwich with its lovely shops, the cathedral well worth a visit, unfortunately the castle wasn’t open and will be closed for at least another year, upgrading the interior. We went to the Theatre too which completed our day. Cromer is worth a visit for their dressed crabs. Southwold a beautiful seaside town, with a very interesting pier, great Fish and chips too. Ramworth Broad Nature Reserve, Beckles, Wroham, Horning, all well worth a visit. The Ferry House Inn great for food also the The George and Dragon just 5 minutes drive away. We had a day visiting Sandringham and enjoyed a cream tea. All in all the Coach House is a lovely place to stay and is situated in the right area to visit many places in Norfolk and enjoy the countryside, the city and the coast line.

Perfect for a family of four or two couples, this property has been furnished and decorated to a high standard with fabulous touches like contemporary wallpaper harmonious colour choices.

Although next door to the owner's property and within their grounds, the property enjoys its own private entrance, head inside to the ground floor and come into the open-plan living space to be welcomed by a wonderful colour palette of teal, mustard and grey.

Enjoy cooking within the sleek granite topped kitchen, complete with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, and fridge, before setting the table to eat with light coming through from the full length patio doors opening up the space even more.

Settle down on one of the plush seats, choosing from a modern take on a classic chaise longue, a large sofa or an inviting armchair, all set before the wall-mounted TV.

On warm days sit outside in the evening to make the most of the weather, whether it's with a morning coffee, an evening of alfresco dining or simply a slow afternoon, the ground floor also has underfloor heating.

Move through the hallway lined with unique, contemporary grey wallpaper, up to the first floor to find the two fabulous bedrooms which both have beautiful en-suite shower rooms, along with stylish feature wallpaper and a continuation of the thoughtfully chosen colour scheme, and a mezzanine reading area, perfect for relaxing.

Decide which room will be yours choosing from either the king size bedroom or the super-king-size bedroom which can be made into a twin on request as they are zip/link beds, each have their own Smart TV.

This property is situated perfectly for exploring the beautiful Norfolk Broads and Broadlands and the River Yare valley, with the man-made Broads hosting over 125-miles of navigable and lock-free waterways within the gorgeous East Anglia countryside.

The city of Norwich is a hub of attractions including historical buildings like the stunning Norwich Cathedral, or you can learn the history of the city by visiting The Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell, all before choosing from one of the many eateries and restaurants to stop at and enjoy some refreshments.

The delightful seaside town of Great Yarmouth will be a great destination for all ages with its long sandy beach, SEA LIFE centre, Pleasure Beach, and a scattering of museums to explore.

Also the nearby seaside town of Southwold sits on the Suffolk Heritage Coast and offers a host of attractions, such as a working lighthouse, an award-winning pier, a busy harbour, cliff-top cannons, fishing spots and of course, a lovely beach, as well as a range of shops, good restaurants and pubs.

Take a boat trip out at the lovely village of Wroxham, meandering along the picturesque countryside landscapes among quaint cottages, or choose to spend a day shopping at one of the many homemade craft shops, garden centres or independent jewellery shops.
