  • "The cottage was lovely a bit smaller than expected the fly situation was horrendous however half way through our stay the owner did send some men in to spray cottage however in our opinion it didn't work, garden was lovely it was a shame it wasn't fenced off to allow my dog a free run."

    But on the whole the holiday was lovely and the owners very pleasant

    Comfy bed. Cosy warm cottage. Milk and biscuits was a nice touch thank you. Everything was just right for us 2 and a dog.

  • "I had a good enough stay, but found the kitchen area very cramped, and the shower went from a really fast flow to almost a trickle in a week."

  • "Really enjoyed my dog friendly stay."

    Lovely walks. The cottage is very small but well equipped and I found it comfortable. My only negative is that I thought there was an enclosed garden but there isn't. My dog required a visit to the garden in the early hours so, there I was wandering around in my pyjamas at 2am. Even if there were a little fencing around the patio doors, that would really help. Owners very helpful when I needed towels to wipe Micky's feet. Very friendly and would happily visit again for the walks. Sorry about setting the fire alarm off with my toast! Angie

  • "We needed a few days away, having both worked through out the pandemic with no chance of a vacation."

    This cottage was idyllic, comfortable, warm and not overly expensive. Tucked away from the rat race, we enjoyed a few country walk's with our puppy who also loved his stay. To our host's of the cottage many thanks for making it perfect time away.

  • "A lovely bijou cosy cottage for 2 plus our border collie."

    Had everything we needed for a 4 night stay in January. I took extra rugs and hot water bottles but totally unnecessary as it was very cosy. Very quiet and totally restful. Great farm shop 1.5 miles away with lovely cafe attached.

  • "We left after the first night, as we are both in our 60,s."

    We found the double bed so uncomfortable. My husband slept on the floor! The lounge furniture was also very uncomfortable! So disappointed ☹️! The accommodation, is fine for one person , definitely not two. Far too small .

    Thank you for leaving feedback. The bed in Garden Cottage is a standard sized double bed, and we regularly receive compliments on the coziness and comfort of the property. The property is compact but this is very clear in the pictures provided. We are sorry you left Garden Cottage early. Property Owner

    Beautifully set out and a lovely location. A perfect base to explore Norfolk and Suffolk, on arrival a lovely bouquet of flowers and pack of biscuits. We met the hosts, Sarah and Stuart who were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone wanting a short or long break. A Brilliant week's holiday

  • "Well when we arrived we were disappointed with the size of the property being so small."

    Then we heard the bird scarers going off with a loud bang and then another loud bang this was both sides of the property. And when we went to the local pub for lunch it was closed down but when I contacted them before we left they gave me a email voucher for 20% off our meals? Strange. With regard to the furniture in the front room wonse you sat down it was so low it was difficult to get up again. We also had to wash all the cutlery and plates before we used them in actual fact the utensils still had old food on them.The other problem was the the flys that continued to buss arround you even when your in bed I suppose that's what the spatter was for. With regard to the shower it didn't look like it had been descaled for years. I feel that the PRICE charged for a week is extremely high considering the cottage is a old out building with additions to it ,in actuall fact it isn't a cottage at all. The PRICE of a weeks stay is extremely high

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the size of the accommodation, however the pictures and description of the cottage accurately reflect its size and make it clear that it is in a rural location. Rural living sometimes comes with flies and pigeon scarers and tractors working in the fields surrounding the cottage, but we appreciate it might not be to everyone's taste. We are sorry to hear that the local pub was closed (unfortunately they were unable to keep open after COVID). Our living room furniture is from a very well known high street retailer, we are sorry if it was not to your liking, previous guests have been very happy with it. Both the kitchen and bathroom were completely changed and refurbished in 2020 - we do suffer from heavy limescale in our water but the shower is checked and descaled weekly. I am sorry if you feel some plates/cutlery were not cleaned satisfactorily and we will take steps to check more thoroughly in future, thank you for bringing this to our attention. The price of the cottage is set by Sykes and reflects the time of year and the current post lockdown demand. The cottage is cosy and full of character, in a peaceful, rural location and we have had many very happy visitors over the last few years. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Brilliant stay, such a pretty part of Norfolk."

    The cottage went above and beyond and we were so impressed. So so cosy and a lovely escape. Having some biscuits on arrival was a lovely touch. We loved seeing the chickens running around every day. Only thing we would say is the low ceiling as you go from the lounge to the kitchen, a sign would be helpful for us tall folk as we knocked our head a few times. Other than that, everything was just perfect!

    There was a great array of cooking items, which we really hadn’t expected. The cottage is very rural and although we were next to the owner’s house, we get hassled. We would definitely use this cottage and Sykes Holidays again.
