    Found it difficult to find, the sat nav sent us to Norton Corner Post Office, we must have driven by several times, the house sign was well worn, the map directions given say from Holt but I went Holt, expecting to go straight there, but should have turned off at Thursford for Merton Constable, lots very narrow lanes, thankfully little traffic, the stay let, was scrupulously clean, surprisingly large well thought out and planned, every thing you could need two bathrooms with under floor heating and heated towel rail, plenty of room, ideal for people who don't like stairs, parking adjacent, very quiet location,

  • "This is the second time we’ve stayed at Moat Farm cottage and we would very happily return again."

    The standard of the cottage is so high and makes a very comfortable stay. Such an array of kitchen accessories, crockery and cooking equipment which means there’s no frustration finding a decent this or that when cooking for the family. Dishwasher and washer a real bonus too. We stayed as a family of two children, mum and dad and also a great-aunt. The layout of the cottage meant we had the main bathroom and two bedrooms, and she could have privacy in the large master en-suite bedroom, all sharing the living, kitchen, dining and garden areas. If you want to experience ‘real Norfolk’ in the heart of the countryside then Moat Farm Cottage is perfect. Country lanes, total peace and quiet and no light pollution which gives the best night skies. All in all - fantastic!

  • "Wow, what a cottage!"

    We had a fantastic stay despite the snow and ice. It really was so tucked away, quiet and wonderfully dark at night. The cottage was exceptionally well quipped, clean and very comfortable and perhaps the one thing it lacked, from a womans perspective, was a full length mirror somewhere. Parking just outside the cottage was ample for two cars which is a big plus I think. We will definitely be back and maybe at a different tiime of year but for a pre christmas break it really couldn't have been better....thank you so much Alex!

Quality furniture and linen, beautiful bath sheets, very comfy beds, excellent crockery and cutlery, very spacious, private and a total joy to stay there. absolutely spotlessly clean, plenty of easy parking, lovely seating area outside, well equipped kitchen with easy to use appliances, both bathrooms were spacious and luxurious, superb oak flooring throughout, we'll definitely be back! Location is excellent for discovering north/mid Norfolk, Thank you for a lovely break in this gorgeous cottage, the photo's online do not do it justice!

  • "Moat Cottage was a truly amazing place to spend the week."

    Set in the real heart of the Norfolk countryside, you couldn’t have got a better rural experience. The Cottage had everything you could think of and way more! Cooking in the modern well resourced kitchen was a joy as there was literally everything you could need. Made a massive difference. Tons of glasses and crockery etc so you didn’t need to constantly wash up. Having a washer and drier was another great addition, along with clothes maiden. Made a big difference to dry clothes after a wet seal boat trip! All the bedrooms were tastefully furnished and the beds all comfortable. Two amazing bathrooms with a shower I wanted to take home! Having a king size bed / en-suite one side and two bedrooms and a bathroom the other made it perfect to share with a relative, having a bathroom each and own privacy. The garden and patio area made a location for early morning and evening drinks. Perfect location for the coast, Walsingham, Norwich and the usual visits before retreating back to the tranquility of the farm cottage. Most things within 20 minutes. Sandringham 50 minutes. I really could not fault this cottage and after turning the shock of the tiny country lanes to extra excitement…it quickly became an idiotic setting for our week’s holiday. Would not hesitate staying again and hope to do so. Closest we could get as a family to how it would be like to live in a Norfolk village as our ancestors did (but far more luxuriously than they did!). Thank you.

    Bit tricky to find as it's not in Wood Dalling, nor on road described. It's on Norton Cross & would be much better described as such. Also Garden Centre has closed so not easy to spot. Property itself was excellent. We have never stayed anywhere with as much fully matching crockery and cutlery! It took me a while to realisethat the owner has added a porch since your photo. Very nice, totally recommended.

    Clean, tidy, quiet, well situated for all the places we wanted to visit. The only thing I could say was a bit of a minus was the time we had to get out. 9am we feel is a tad to early. Not enough time to even have morning coffee and breakfast. We always thought it was in at 4pm and out by 10am....is this something that has changed since covid. It does seem extremely early. Other than that perfect in every way...thankyou. Xx
