    Thanks for having the portable air-conditioning on in the bedroom on arrival in high temperature. A large or tall person would have difficulty in the shower.

    Thanks for your feedback. I’m glad the air conditioning helped. The thick walls of the cottage also help during hot spells. Property Owner

    A quirky little cottage which served our needs for a short break. We had everything that we needed. Only a couple of head bumps from low door frames! Lots of wild life to watch from kitchen window. The local pub was very handy for eating out and dog friendly.

    Thanks for your feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. I’ve now added a sign and a cushion to help avoid head bumps. Property Owner

    If I had known this I would not have booked this property. Couldn't open windows as all shrubs trees was covering the windows. No hard rail on the stairs. The garden is in a terrible state overgrown with large nettles dead shrubs and weeds everywhere. Wood around back patio is dangerous. Overall not value for money, and I would not recommend this property. I choose this property for the location which was great, but badly disappointed with the lack of uo keep. Maggie

    It’s charming, comfortable, well equipped and there’s a great outdoor space for humans and dogs. Beds are comfy and it’s all very clean. Beware the low doors to kitchen but really not a problem as long as you ‘duck’. Great place to explore from. The local pub is friendly and has good food.

  • "The cottage was perfect- yes, you do need to be aware of the low doorways but you soon get used to “ducking “as you’re walking around."

    Its location, for us at least, was ideal- really quiet and peaceful - being woken up by birdsong was a real treat! We have a dog and she loved the place just as much as we did - wondering around in the back garden(which was totally dog safe - ie no escape routes). Possibly our favourite aspect of the cottage, and of East Rudham for that matter, was that there are loads of walks right from the front door which was great. You’re only about 30 minutes from the coast which has some wonderful dog friendly beaches - the beach café opposite the RNLI station at Old Hunstanton is a must. Perhaps the only thing I would mention to the owners is that the small shed in the back garden has no room in it for bike storage - this didn’t affect us but anyone thinking of taking a bike would be disappointed. Other than that we can’t fault the cottage - I’m sure we’ll be back.

    That’s lovely to hear. You’re welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "Broom Cottage is a little gem and perfect location for exploring all North Norfolk has to offer."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, loved the bright, modern kitchen which was kitted out with plenty of equipment you might need if cooking and eating in. Our weather was stunning so taking breakfast in the cute little terraced garden was a perfect start to each day. I made sure i topped up the water for the many resident garden birds! and watered the hydrangea outside the front door - it was extremely hot weather and it looked like it had suffered a bit over the last 2 weeks. It had perked up by the time we departed though. We so appreciated the addition of the cool fan tower in the bedroom - a total must for the small twin bedded room in hot weather.. Beds all very comfortable. The only small comment i would make is that we were not aware of the 2nd bedroom only being accessed by the main bedroom - this was not ideal when needing to use the bathroom in the night. Perfect for a family but perhaps should be pointed out for other dynamics. All in all a fab stay. Apologies i forgot to write feedback in your sweet little book.

    Thank you so much for watering the hydrangea. It looked good when we checked the cottage last week. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We came away from our break with mixed views, yes the cottage is quaint and the surrounding location is a bonus, however the issues that we had, due to our family dynamic, did dampen our break."

    The decor of the cottage is lovely, the kitchen is compact but has what you need, the bathroom is well maintained and the beds are comfortable. The enclosed garden was perfect for the 2 year old to explore and he also enjoyed watching the birds. The biggest issue for us was the upstairs layout, had the sleeping arrangements been made clear we would not have booked this property. The twin bedroom and bathroom are both accessed via the main bedroom. While this will suit a family, this caused us some issues. I did contact the owner prior to posting this review and was offered a gesture of goodwill, she was very responsive and I felt I was listened to, however, I do suggest that the description is updated. Another practical addition would be a clothes airer, the weather was extremely wet and we found it very difficult to find anywhere to hang out coats so that they were dry for the next day.

    Many thanks for your comments - there is already a small hanger upstairs but we shall look to provide a larger hanger for drying wet coats. Property Owner

The kids’ feet/socks were really dirty after walking around and we had to clean under the breakfast bar when we got there as there was a lot of pet hairs. We couldn’t find an oven glove.

The sleeping arrangements wouldn’t suit everyone but they were fine for us. A washing machine would have been helpful because we had a car sickness incident but we got around it. Other than that the cottage has everything you could need and the hosts really did go above and beyond.

    We experienced dirty crockery , fly infested table mats, cobwebs and dirt around the shower area, to name a few. However the worst of all was was after we stripped the best prior to leaving and found a large stain on the mattress and on the duvet. We were disgusted to think we have slept in that bed with its crisp white linen! Although we liked the cottage we don’t feel we can go back unless improvements are made.

    Thanks for your feedback, please accept our apologies - we have replaced the mattress. We do replace, maintain and decorate all the fittings in the cottage on an ongoing basis in line with requirements and feedback - we prefer to address immediately/asap so it is always best to hear of any issues as soon as possible. We do appreciate that as a result of Covid, concerns around cleanliness are especially high at the moment. The precautions taken by the cleaner are as per government guidance but we are seeking to adapt further and will continue to monitor effectiveness - and we are further revisiting the cleaning and inspection process with the cleaner in the light of your comments. Unfortunately we cannot exclude the possibility that the odd fly or spider makes an entrance in the cottage - it is a period property in a deeply rural setting. We do hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

  • "As a family of four, the space was a little compact and the configuration of the upstairs felt like a one bed with a converted storage space making the second bedroom."

    I think it should be highlighted that privacy could be an issue as access to both the second bedroom and the bathroom is via the main bedroom. Some aesthetic touches and changes to furniture would elevate this property considerably. More comfy seating in the living room and some attention to the rear would provide space to relax and maximise the existing features such as log burner and the lovely location. Cleaning seems to have improved based on the reviews, but we still found that considering the Covid-19 factor, that a number of things were not to the right standard, the tv remote was dirty, there was a cheesy wotsit on the floor of the bedroom, dust on the surfaces in the kitchen. Nothing too chronic but certainly details that we felt should have been better considering the current climate.

    Thanks for your comments Mr Reynolds. Following easing of lockdown, we are monitoring the cleaning and inspection process closely to ensure this is fully satisfactory. Property Owner

    Absolutely filthy. One read of the grease encrusted visitors book there are complaints of hygiene dating back years. I was booked with my elderly cancer patient father to stay during the Christmas period for 4 nights but went home after 2, as 2 nights breathing in thick black mould from every corner of the bedroom was too much for my lungs to bare. The state of the whole place was thick with dust, grease and grime.; spiders webs non living insects and mould. This stay was during COVID. All commercial rentals are legally bound to be deep cleaned after each stay. This place has not had a decent clean since the start of the Black Plague let alone covid. I left and went home and complained that night. Why didn't I complain at the time? Quite frankly if the standard of cleanliness and hygiene was deemed acceptable then the last thing I wanted was to let these non covid compliant strangers who thought this acceptable to come into the hovel with mine and my fathers belongings insitu. I was refused any refund

  • "The cottage is in a nice location at the end of the lane."

    However, this cottage is in need of some TLC. The oven needs replacing as unable to read dials and also needs a very good clean; with oven trays being rusty. Skirting boards were dirty which need a good clean and paint. The shower is very small and the seals are discoloured on the screen, which made it particularly unpleasant. We felt that the cottage was more suited for couples as we had a lot of discomfort and seating for 4 adults would be difficult. Bathroom is situated in the main bedroom however is shared between all guests therefore you have to walk into the main bedroom to get to it, which is very awkward. So if you come out of the twin room you will be entering the master bedroom which is again awkward.

    We went in March and the kitchen was very cold, having just a small floor-level fan heater. The living room and bedroom each had an electric radiator which were efficient, but we had trouble keeping the woodburner alight - either the dampers aren't working properly, the chimney needs sweeping or maybe the wood is too green. No lovely cosy fire unfortunately! The kitchen is well-equipped, the bed and pillows comfortable. The garden is secure for pets. The stairs may be tricky for some as they are the traditional Norfolk winder staircase which are often found in these little cottages.

There were no bin bags in the kitchen, towels, dish clothes, or hand soap.After banging my head a couple of times on the door frame you do remember to duck. It was quite central to everywhere. We will definately visit Norfolk again, and stay at the cottage with the changes done. The only down side to the holiday, we broke down on the way home but it was our last day, and we got home with thanks to the AA. This is our second time through Sykes and we will use them again next time.

  • "I think that people who have asthma should be warned that the bedding in made with feathers."

    More than that in the small bedroom there is quite a lot of mould at the head of the bed and the inhabitant is therefore breathing in spores. It was a nice little cottage for two although the shower was very small and the kitchen could have done with a few more kitchen instruments. I liked the cottage but not the damp in several places.

  • "The cottage was very charming but we hit on a problem as soon as we arrived on the Saturday."

    The smell of damp in the kitchen was very strong and so I had a good look around to find there was a bowl under the sink overflowing with stagnant water complete with spores. I tried to remove the bowl but soon realised the S bend was obstructing it. Also I was mindful of causing a greater problem. I contacted you but did not hear further. I also tried to contact the owner but did not get a response. On the Monday I contacted you again and soon heard from the owner who then came over to deal with the problem. She arranged for a plumber to call the next day to fully resolve the matter. However the main issue here is that I should not have been faced with this problem. The management and cleaning is clearly lacking and it was quite apparent the bowl of water had been there for some time. I appreciate the weekly rent was quite reasonable but there is a minimum standard and quite honestly I felt that some furnishing was tired and dated ie bed and sofa.
