  • "The property was spotless and comfortable."

    Everything that was needed to make our stay better was there. I would recommend this property to anyone and hopefully will use it again when we are down in the area.

  • "The cottage was perfectly placed for getting out and about."

    The village was very welcoming and friendly. 5 minute walk to the fish and chip shop, pub and supermarket, 2 minutes to the Chinese takeaway .

  • "Lovely cottage with everything that you could possibly need, and very thorough information book."

    A delightful owner - spoke on phone for key collection, was in garden and waved on our arrival, plus a couple of texts after departure, but otherwise we did not see her. Perfect break. Although they weren’t doing food, The Wellington pub (5 minute walk) was fabulous and so welcoming that we became “regulars” popping in for a couple of drinks after our days out.

  • "The cottage had a lovely garden."

    It also has good car parking facilities. It was well equipped in the kitchen. The village has a pub although we did not use as they were not serving food. Chip shop and Chinese takeaway were good and there is a good children's playground

    From lots of towels, to even a multi point charger lead.

  • "The cottage was clean and comfortable."

    Only one point - nowhere to plug in my hairdryer to do my hair in front of a mirror in the main bedroom. I had to do my hair and make-up in the conservatory with the mirror from the second bedroom. Feltwell village is lovely, the local pub The Wellington is excellent and serves great food. Be sure to visit St Nicholas' church - Saxon origins from 683! Large local playing field for running around (which we did). Two local shops and a great fish and chip shop.

    Relaxing and has everything we wanted near by. Owners were readily available but not intrusive.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in Violet cottage and it catered for almost all our needs."

    We needed a carving knife but the owner was quite happy to lend us one but apart from that everything we needed was in place. It was a short walk from a very welcoming pub which served excellent food.

  • "This was our second visit to Violet Cottage and there will be a third!"

    Delightful and private getaway with large garden in the heart of the village. If you are wild bird lover then this is the place to be. With two bathrooms this suited our needs perfectly. Diane and Gordon are lovely hosts, friendly but not intrusive. Gordon was particularly Informative regarding all things local.

  • "In your advert you said there were three public houses in the village."

    Unfortunately two have now closed down and consequently there is only the one left called The Wellington.

  • "The cottage itself was fine but we didn't feel very welcome, generally."

    The cottage was clean and more spacious than expected, however, there are serious problems with the internet and sky TV. The garden is actually a large garden which belongs to the owners who live next door and it really feels like their space. We could've overlooked this if the hosts had been a bit friendlier. We stayed for 4 weeks and didn't see them at all after moving in until the day we were moving out and then all the owner said was 'what time are you leaving? You can leave the keys in there'. There was no 'how was your stay' or thanks for staying. We were quite shocked and felt like they wanted our money but didn't really want us there. Very disappointing.

  • "A beautiful cottage, ideally placed to visit Norwich, Ely, Thetford forest."

    We had to leave early because the weather forecasts were on Amber warnings, so did not get to Kings Lynn and Suffolk. A good excuse to return at some time. The owners live next door but we're not obtrusive. All in all a good and comfortable retreat.

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.
