  • "This is a wonderful place to stay."

    Very private, delightful hosts who are happy to chat but never intrusive. The cottage has everything necessary and more for a good break for four people, and is extremely comfortable, including good heating, 2 upstairs bathrooms (but no downstairs loo). The weather wasn’t conducive to using the garden, but that would be lovely in the summer.

    Thank you for the feedback. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and that Bob had a good birthday. Thank you for leaving everything clean and tidy. Sorry about the weather! Should you wish for a return visit, we would be pleased to see you all again. Property Owner

Our 3 dogs were made very welcome & loved playing in the completely secure garden . The welcome basket was such a nice thoughtful touch with practical necessities as well as a few indulgent ones as well !

    We are most grateful for your positive feedback and so pleased you all enjoyed your stay. It's always rewarding when guests have such nice things to say.

  • "Lovely property and extensive gardens."

    Hosts were welcoming, available and couldn't do enough for us. Most equipment we've ever seen in a rental property. Thanks to Tim and Sharon again for changing our booking only 7 days before our original booking because of a family emergency.

    It was lovely to meet you all. We trust you enjoyed the break. You were certainly very lucky with the weather at the beginning of the week and seemed to find plenty of places to explore. If there are any you missed, it would be lovely to see you again some time. Thank you so much for the wonderful birthday cake - and the well-hidden bottle of Prosecco! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time staying here and enjoying all that the area had to offer."

    The Broads are nearby, as is the coast and it is only a short drive into Norwich with everything you might want or need. There's a village shop that is very handy and the area is beautiful. The gardens offered a peaceful and beautiful place to relax with very well maintained flower beds and hanging baskets. Out hosts who live next door were very mindful of our privacy while being on hand should we have any problems. They are both lovely people with cheerful and positive attitudes that we really liked. There was nothing negative about our week away here and I highly recommend this accommodation.

    We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Your feedback is much appreciated. Thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy. We would love to see you again if you were returning to this part of the country. Property Owner

    Wonderful hosts, everything was catered for. Only slight gripe, the shower's need updating, which I believe is being actioned in the next off season. But would 100% recommend especially for the location which for the broads is perfect!

    There was a well stocked welcome pack waiting for us too. The bungalow is a real home from home - everything we needed was there. The location is ideal for exploring both the coastline and Norfolk Broads, and the village pub, The Crown was very welcoming, only 2 minutes walk from Walnut Tree Cottage - there was a very selection of food to choose from. We will definitely return to this lovely holiday home. Thank you, Sharon & Tim.

  • "Best holiday let we have stayed in."

    Sharon and Tim are perfect hosts, the welcome basket provided was lovely, and so useful after a long journey. Unlike many holiday properties, where the minimum of everything is provided (eg washing up liquid, toilet rolls), there was more than enough of everything we could have needed. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable, and the outside space delightful. The property is in a great location with a well stocked local shop and a pub doing good food within about 3 minutes walk. Also well within reach of many local attractions. We would recommend Walnut Tree Cottage without hesitation.

    Thank you very much for the lovely feedback. It is always nice to receive such positive comments. it was a pleasure to meet you both. Thanks also for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy.

    We couldn't have been more comfortable, and nothing had been overlooked - with the added bonus of vases of fresh flowers, and some basic food supplies to tide us over until we could shop next morning.

Big thank you to the owners for the effort and care they put into making it such a welcoming stay.

    The owners were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome, including our dog. The basket of food and drink left for us on arrival was a nice touch. The cottage was very clean, spacious and well equipped. The lounge was cosy and the bed was comfortable. The pleasant garden at the front and side of the property is accessible from the front door. This area is in an enclosed space and safe for our dog to roam about without the worry of him escaping.

We enjoyed nice walks with the dog around the area of Burgh Castle and on the beach at Winterton on sea. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to book another holiday there one day soon.
