  • "This lovely property, set in a quiet corner of a housing estate, was perfect for us and our two dachshunds."

    Being on one level it was extremely accessible for all of us and the lovely garden was a haven of tranquility. The inside of the property was fresh, spotless and very light and airy. It was extremely well-equipped with nice quality things. On the one cooler day of our stay, the sun-room was an escape from the stiff breeze. There were nice touches when we arrived, such as tea and coffee, along with treats for the dogs. A great deal of thought has been put into this property and we were so impressed that, on our second day, we re-booked for the same week next year, something we have never done before!! All in all, this propert made our holiday extremely enjoyable and we shall be back for more.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this fantastic feedback - we are so pleased that you and your dogs enjoyed your stay at Waddling Ducks. We are delighted to at we’ll be able to welcome you again next year. All the best, Alan and Ruth Property Owner

  • "This is a fantastic place to stay."

    So homely and everything you could want is available. The enclosed garden is beautifully colourful with the flower beds and outside furniture is perfect to sit on for a few drinks. 5 to 10 min walk to the beach which is not dog friendly but only 5 minutes in car to the dog friendly one which is great. Overall this as been a brilliant holiday which also our dog loved and I would recommend the property.

  • "A lovely bungalow, spotless and extremely well stocked with every kind of crockery, cutlery and other kitchenware items."

    The beds and sofas were very comfortable and there was a wide range of books, games and dvds available for rainy days. We were grateful to see bowls, dishes, blankets and biscuits, just for the dog. The garden was stunning, with a variety of beautiful colourful flowers and it was totally secure for our dog to be let out safely.

  • "This property was a delight to spend a week in."

    The location was great for us,nice and quiet but not far away from amenities.We could not fault the cleanliness and the garden was a lovely suntrap and ideal for the dog.The setee was a little low for my dodgy back.The kitchen was very well stocked and the washing machine was very handy.The air fresheners in every room were a little overpowering and the washing line bracket was broken but these are very minor issues.We would definitely use again.

    Thank you for your kind and constructive feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back next year. Your comments about the air fresheners are noted - as we accept dogs we wanted to make sure anyone coming without them wasn’t overpowered by doggy smells. We will see if we can find a happy medium. And thanks for letting us know about the washing line bracket. We will get that fixed or replaced asap. Regards. Alan & Ruth. Property Owner

  • "Just returned from a lovely week in Waddling Ducks."

    A warm, clean and comfortable bungalow located in a quiet cul-de-sac, away from the main town centre, with a warm sun room to the rear of the main bedroom. There is a good provision of kitchen utensils and cupboard space, (kitchen and bedrooms)which has been a problem we've encountered elsewhere in self catering properties. Its ideally situated to visit areas of interest to the south and north east of Hunstanton, particularly if wildlife is your interest. It was wonderful to see Skeins of Geese fly over the bungalow in late afternoon as they returned to the Wash Mud Flats after feeding in nearby fields. We need to look no further than Waddling Ducks for our next visit to Norfolk. Thankyou to Alan & Ruth and good luck with projects over the winter months.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and for being such wonderful guests. We hope to welcome you back some time soon. Property Owner

  • "Excellent area lovely and quiet but in walking distance of Hunstanton."

    Bungalow needs a little bit of a update bathroom and addition of possible dishwasher and dryer.The boiler is very noisy as well so addition of a combi boiler would increase the amount asked in the holiday price.But overall an enjoyable holiday.

    Thank you for your honest feedback. Whilst the bathroom does benefit from a recently fitted suite, we too have been keen to do a more comprehensive refurbishment which will take place over the winter months. We have always been very careful to ensure our listing of the bungalow on the Sykes website is completely accurate, with plenty of photographs of each room along with a clear description of facilities, to aid guests in their decision about booking with us and in the planning of their stay. The back boiler, situated in the lounge behind the fire, is sometimes audible when sitting quietly in that room. However, as it is extremely efficient, in full working order and fully gas safety checked, we are also reluctant to undertake the major reconfiguration that would be required to relocate it elsewhere within the property until we can assess the most environmentally friendly and cost effective solution. We continue to focus on ensuring that essential maintenance is always undertaken regularly throughout the bungalow, along with ensuring that we maximize our guests comfort during their stay. All the best, Alan and Ruth Property Owner

    Comfort was quite good but the single bed was a bit small for my 6' friend. Also an arm chair or two would have been welcome.

  • "Lovely quiet place to stay."

    Enjoyed having coffee and breakfast in the back garden, everything you needed in the little hut. Spent time watching the birds in the hedgerow at the back. Ideal base for exploring the North Norfolk area with lots to see and do. Yes we did see ducks waddling along the paths and in the gardens.

  • "A couple of spare toilet rolls would have been nice and on one chilly evening discovered the heating did not work despite raising the thermostat setting and changing the programmer."

    A very quiet and comfortable stay but nothing within walking distance which was fine by us.

    Thank you for your feedback, we do appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. We are a self catering property, but we do take care to provide some essentials for our guests at no additional cost (including toilet roll, shower gel, shampoo, tea, coffee, milk and biscuits - along with washing up liquid, dishcloth and tea towels). We’re sorry that you felt there wasn’t enough toilet roll and hope that you were able to obtain a plentiful supply from one of the local supermarkets. We were surprised to learn that you’d encountered difficulties activating the heating; we always ensure that it is programmed so that guests need only to press the ‘advance’ button on the control panel in the kitchen so that the heating will come on; the thermostat in the hall is very easily adjustable so that the temperature can be amended for your comfort depending on the time of year. We will certainly review the instructions in our guide to the property to ensure that they are completely clear - and do want to reiterate that we are contactable to talk guests through any operating instructions if ever this is needed. We are really pleased that you found your stay comfortable overall - and that if we have the opportunity to welcome you back in future that you can further explore some of the attractions that are situated within walking distance or just a short drive away.

    The location is in a very quite neighbourhood, lovely neighbours. The walk to the beach is about a mile, I would suggest people jump in their car drive to the cliffs and park there (only 5 mins maximum and free), you can then enjoy beautiful Old Hunstanton beach which is stunning. Highly recommend this property thank you.

  • "The best holiday home we have stayed in yet."

    It was just like being at home. Very clean and well presented with books to read, DVD's to watch, games to play, music systems to play our own music on. The kitchen was well supplied with cultery, crockery and household cleaning products - everything you would have in your own home. I would definitely stay here again; it's a good base to stay to visit other towns and villages and then come home to a comfortable, quiet place to wind down.
