  • "A cosy, self-contained cottage, with a comfortable bed, nice hot shower and well-equipped kitchen."

    It provided a peaceful location in a lovely part of Norfolk with good access to interesting towns, the seaside and lovely country walks. Phil and Kathryn are delightful hosts.

  • "We were looking for somewhere safe and comfortable in order to enjoy our first few days away for a long time, this was just right."

    There was a friendly welcome with a goodies pack including home made jam to have on artisan bread. We had a great time visiting the seaside and other attractions in the area and then we could return to this cottage and relax. A bolt hole to refresh for the following day.

  • "Disappointed with the property."

    Although fairly accurate description, it did not feel private - outside area is looked on by owners property and would not have felt comfortable sitting out on the gravel area. When we arrived it felt as though we weren't expected - very cold, fridge turned off - not even plugged in - and not even a welcome pint of milk that is usual with a Sykes cottage, if not a bit more! We were also surprised no Covid safeguards were in place - we have stayed in 2 other properties since lock down and both had taken certain steps - removing leaflets, providing hand sanitiser just inside the door, etc - which had not happened here.

    While there is a gravel area at the front, there is also dedicated garden space to the rear of the property for the sole use of guests and which is not overlooked The fridge was off and left open, so that guests could see that it had been cleaned and aired but we will consider it plugged in if this would suit guests better The welcome pack has currently been removed as due to the current situation we are regretfully not providing consumables We can also assure guests that hand sanitiser is placed in the bathroom and we’re sorry if you didn’t see it. As we do live near the property and we also provide our contact number pre arrival, we would of course have assisted with any concerns you had, if we had been made aware at the time. Property Owner

  • "The online photo of the cottage does not do it justice."

    It shows the side of the cottage looking dark and damp. It is neither of these.There are seating areas in the front and back garden carefully placed to catch the sun. The cottage is tastefully furnished and a lovely relaxing place. The owners are friendly and helpful but not intrusive.

  • "Proprietors were very kind and accommodating."

    There was a long power outage for a couple of hours, which was through no fault of theirs that made things difficult as we arrived back late and wanted to cook dinner and were unable to. There was also an outage the evening before. It was a little difficult to find, but in the end a pleasant stay.

    Very kindly gave us some local knowledge of the area and provided some basic provisions in case we hadn't had the opportunity to go to a shop prior. Lovely people, and a very nice quiet cottage and village.
