  • "A beautifully restored cottage, well equipped with a lovely welcome of tea, coffee and a bottle of Prosecco as well."

    Would definitely stay again!

  • "A super cottage , extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    It was an excellent base from which to visit local family. The cottage is on a very busy road but it was quiet at night.

  • "The post box cottage was cosy comfortable and just what we needed for a great week in Norfolk lovely touches like a dog bed ,dog blankets ,treats and a dog bowl for our furry friend and a pint of milk and a bottle of wine left for us."

    The kitchen had all what we needed dishwasher tablets and washing machine capsules, washing up liquid, tea towels & cloths. The front room was cosy and the starter kit for the wood burner was great upstairs there’s a hairdryer ironing board and ironi, lovely ensuite with white fluffy towels. The beds were very comfortable and was lovely waking up to the view of the field. Overall the cottage was a five star stay. The enclosed garden is a must for our little dog and it was secure and safe. Thank you for our stay.

  • "Our second stay at the beautiful Postbox Cottage didn't disappoint - my husband and I, and both of our dogs, absolutely loved our time there, especially given how close we were to all of the beautiful walks."

    We highly recommend Postbox Cottage.

  • "It is a lovely property with everything you need."

    The only downside for us was the intrusive traffic noise that spoiled a relaxing holiday to such an extent that we left early.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in this beautifully renovated cottage in Feltwell."

    All very well presented and with a well-equipped kitchen. It lies on the edge of the village with a pleasant outlook at the back over fields. Two bathrooms were a bonus. The Hosts were extremely helpful and approachable. Would recommend it.

  • "The cottage was very clean with all the necessary required equipment for cooking etc."

    The main road which the cottage is situated can be a little noisy at times but this should not detract how nice the cottage is. The bed was comfortable and the outside courtyard was good for sitting out. You are ideally situated for the coast and local attractions. The Browns cafe at Munford do a very nice breakfast and coffee. All in all Lucie and Tom have created a very nice cottage and it is a credit to them. Steve and Sue.

  • "A lovely clean and tidy cottage."

    The owners Tom and Lucie live next door and are lovely, they left us goodies for our arrival which were a nice little touch. Well placed for visiting around Norfolk and Suffolk, nothing is too far. Very dog friendly cottage and perfect little garden. Small village but local shops were well stocked and supermarket nearby in Brandon was only a short drive. Plenty of lovely country parks nearby and only about an hour to the coast around Norfolk. Somewhere we would definitely go again.

  • "The cottage was clean and presentable with a welcome gift, bed linen and towels supplied, ideal for our week's stay."

    The family who own the property said hello as they live in the two houses next door, but did not intrude at all. It is next to a fairly busy road but there was only a rush of traffic first thing in the morning, the rest of the time the area is very quiet especially at night. The only thing you can hear are the owls. The double room is quite small with en-suite toilet and shower, plus there is no wardrobe space in the larger twin room, but it did not affect us much as we were a party of three. It might be more of a squeeze if you were a family of 4. Kitchen had everything we needed with a dishwasher and washing machine including tablets. We could not work out how to switch on the electric radiators as there is no central heating that we could see but it was warm enough for us anyway. Wi-fi has plenty of speed and the Smart TV worked fine. Only other small issue to raise really is that the shower curtain was too high downstairs so the tiled floor did get very wet and made the room smell damp. For food supplies we would recommend the Aldi in Brandon which is not too far away, the village shops had the essentials but not much else.

    Could not want for anything better. Property was well stocked with everything to cook with and eat with. Beds were very comfortable, as for the showers they were lush. 10/10 !!!! Will stay again

  • "An old and once derelict cottage has been turned into a beautiful holiday home."

    The restoration has been thorough and entirely simpathetic with the careful and imaginative use of reclaimed quarry tiles and other materials. The result is tasteful, cool and comfortable. The cottage was spotlessly clean, tidy and welcoming on our arrival. It is well equipped with everything which could be needed for a great holiday in a part of the country with much to see and do on the doorstep. Our hosts were right next door and always ready to provide friendly help without once being at all intrusive. The welcome gifts were also much appreciated. Thank you to Tom, Lucy and Sally for a fine break and great hospitality. We really hope to be back sometime soon.

  • "A lovely cottage in a great location !"

    Beautifully restored by the owners , this cottage is full of character. Well appointed with comfortable beds and everything you could wish for in a holiday cottage. We stayed for two weeks and visited many places and it was always lovely to return to the cottage at the end of the days out. The owners were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We used the log burner towards the end of our stay as it was getting chilly in the evenings. If I was being ultra honest, the sofas provided were a little hard for our old bones, but in no way would that put us off going again!!! A truly delightful cottage that made our holiday perfect!

    Thank you for coming to stay at Postbox Cottage and for leaving such lovely feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future! Property Owner

FELTWELL

Brandon 7 miles; Thetford 16 miles; King’s Lynn 24 miles; Bury St Edmunds 25 miles

The agricultural village of Feltwell is situated on the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire borders and is one of the largest villages in Norfolk. Feltwell offers good local amenities including village stores, a Post Office, and pubs. This area of Norfolk is known as the ‘Brecks’, which has a unique landscape consisting of beautiful Scots Pine forests, heathlands, wetlands, chalk streams, meres and pingo ponds. The Brecks is an outstanding area for wildlife conservation and boasts several nature reserves, country parks and visitor centres, which offer activities for the whole family. Thetford Forest High Lodge Centre is the largest lowland pine forest in the UK, and is an excellent place to walk and cycle. Just 6 miles from Feltwell on the Suffolk border is Lakenheath, where aviation enthusiasts can see American jets at USAF Lakenheath take off and land from its watch areas. Close by is the English Heritage owned Neolithic flint mines at Grimes Graves, and the 125 acre reconstructed Anglo-Saxon village at West Stow. Museums can be found at Brandon, Thetford, Mildenhall and Swaffham and country houses include the National Trust owned Oxburgh Hall and Euston Hall. The area also has two local small breweries and St George’s Distillery - England’s only whiskey distillery. Feltwell is an ideal base for exploring all that this region has to offer.
