  • "We had a lovely relaxing week at The Meadows Cottage, the only noise you hear is the birds singing!"

    The property was perfect for our needs - plenty of space, well-equipped and a large secure garden for our dog. The owners were very friendly and keen to ensure that we had everything we needed, the welcome cake and biscuits were very much appreciated.

  • "We arrived late and tired in the wettest most dismal week of the year to a wonderfully warm and welcoming cottage."

    Tea tray laid out ready with cake and biscuits for us and for the dogs, heating on in every room and the log fire stacked ready to light. Meadows Cottage is both spacious and cosy, comfortable and well equipped and truly wheelchair accessible, except for the kitchen (which was a relief as I needed a break from kitchen duties). The garden is self contained so we could let the dogs out freely. The hosts are generous, kind and helpful without being intrusive. Half an hour's drive will get you to most of the costal walks and the local Garden Centre do a great full English breakfast if you need a morning treat. We will return.

  • "This cottage is almost* perfect - very well equipped, comfortable and with a fully enclosed private garden."

    It’s off the beaten track, and the only sounds you’ll hear are bird songs and the hammering of woodpeckers. Our party included a wheelchair user and a dog. There’s plenty of space; the large master bedroom, wet room and wide doors make it totally accessible. It’s within easy driving distance of numerous attractions, including Walsingham, Cromer, Wells and Holkham. We would very happily come back, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Meadows Cottage. * The only thing that stops it being totally perfect is the chilly bathroom! Probably not a problem in the warmer months, though.

    Adrienne was very welcoming with some lovely treats & even went out of her way to get my wife some Gluten Free treats. We had a very relaxing 2 week stay in this very spacious cottage which is fully accessible by wheelchair. Kitchen has everything you could want for your stay with lots of storage bedrooms spacious clean and well decorated. Good wifi connection which is important these days. Cottage has it's own private area surrounded by beautiful gardens and private patio a real credit to the Cottages owners who work very hard to maintain them. The Satnav took us way past the cottage so please be aware when travelling in down Billingford Road (B1145) and turn in to Bintree Road continue on past a big black barn looking building for a further 1/2 mile & the turn into the Meadows cottage is on your left just before the National speed limit signs with a sign for Meadows cottage on you're left.

  • "They had an award back in 2017 and I can see that it’s well deserved."

    We always do quite a lot of cooking and the hob of the oven has lost most of its switch markings. I and many others have probably turned the dial clockwise thinking it’s low heat and found it the hottest setting. The settings are in fact anti clockwise. Hence the Prestige pans have been heated very high and have concave bases. They only touch at the edges and take ages to warm up. Suggest a note re hob settings are clearly apparent to everyone. (The instructions were printed and in a drawer next to the cooker) This is the only comment I have picked up on and it’s trivial in the scheme of things. (Has been discussed with the owners) The owners on site are really lovely people and a pleasure to associate with. In conclusion we found the holiday home one of the best we have stayed in to date.

  • "The property was very nice."

    Just needed a little more cleaning eg under sofas beds and lots of cobwebs around ceilings. Shower poor with low water pressure.

    We are sorry you were disappointed with some aspects of the cottage. The shower is not a power shower but rather electric and the pressure is usually good. As for cobwebs, we are in the countryside but do check weekly and the cottage is cleaned thoroughly before every visit. It is extremely rare, if ever, that we receive a complaint of this nature. It should be noted that we do live onsite and encourage people on arrival to let us know of any problems during their stay so we can address any issues in a timely manner. Once again, we are sorry you were disappointed. Property Owner

    The friendly owners checked we were ok and left tea bags, milk and a cake on arrival. The cottage itself was clean, comfortable beds, plenty of towels, lots of seating in the lounge and dining table. There were lots of books and games for adults and kids, and the kids enjoyed the playhouses and ride on cars in the garden. The extra downstairs toilet was a welcome surprise. My only suggestions would be to have a mirror in the toilet and twin bedrooms. Also perhaps a shoe rack and more hooks for coats near the entrance way as it did get a bit cluttered with 6 lots of each! Overall a great stay and with so many places still to visit would like to return.

    The Meadows Cottage is a comfortable and spacious cottage and was perfect for our family break. It was extremely clean on arrival and everything was in good working order. We found the layout was perfect for us as a family with grandparents and two children under 5 and a dog. The children were happy playing in the secure garden, we could sit in the living room and chat with the doors open and see them playing. There were two little playhouses and some toddler play cars in the garden which our children enjoyed. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, leaving us some lovely treats at the beginning of our stay and coming to chat to us at the beginning and end of our stay to make sure everything was ok. The guide which the owner had left was excellent for finding local restaurants, takeaways, and days out. The property is close to some beautiful woods to walk our dog in and was a great base from which to explore Norfolk. Locally, the garden centre at Bawdeswell was excellent with a large play area for kids and some nice shops. The kids loved Roar!! Dinosaur adventure park at Lenwade. We were able to get to beaches like Wells and Holkham early to get parked and enjoy the day. All in all a great little cottage and a wonderful stay.

    When we arrived, we were impressed how immaculately clean the cottage was. There were vases of flowers which gave us a welcoming feeling and some delicious cup cakes. We took two small dogs with us and they could run free, safely, in an enclosed garden. A hose pipe was provided to wash the patio clean if the dogs did their toilet there. Disabled holiday makers should note that whilst the cottage has a highish toilet, a grab handle, wheelchair ramp, wide doors and a wet room, there was no hydraulic hoist or others such appliances. I, myself, suffer with Parkinsons, I can still walk and I found the cottage easy to get around. Some people with severe mobility problems would do well to speak with the cottage owner prior to making a booking to discuss their specific needs. This holiday cottage is ideally suitable for people who are not taking children, or dogs who just want a relaxing holiday in the country. There is a table and chairs on the patio which catches the afternoon and evening sun. A superb facility to wile away the hours with a bottle of wine. There is a wonderful book in the lounge which contains lots of ideas of places to visit, including walks and so on. To sum up; we have stayed at many holiday homes in recent years and they have always been good, but this cottage is the best in our opinion.
