  • "Holly cottage is one of the best holiday lets we’ve stayed in."

    The cottage is well equipped and has everything you need. It’s done out to a very high standard and is very comfortable home from home feel. Gifts left from the owners was a lovely thought and most appreciated. Would recommend Holly Cottage for a lovely break, so near a beautiful beach and shop cafe pub fish and chip shop on the door step. Safe garden for our dog so no worries about him getting out. Would highly recommend this cottage and would love to stay again.

    What wonderful feedback, thank you! It means so much to us knowing that our guests have enjoyed staying in our cottage and appreciated all it offers. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this positive review and lovely to hear that you would love to come and stay again. Our next door cottage will be available to book very soon.

  • "A very clean and comfortable cottage."

    Perfect for a dog, although the stairs are a bit tricky for large dogs. If like me, you are a little unsteady on your legs, you do need to be careful. The wood burner is brilliant. Everything you might need for an enjoyable stay is provided. A local shop that sells just about everything, a cafe with great service. My Labrador loved the long walks on the beaches, we just had to call in the cafe for hot chocolate (for me!) and a Sausage (for my dog!!!) after a long walk, every day! Jane & John, the owners, are very friendly and helpful.

  • "Absolutely wonderful cottage, just the perfect, charming and cosy size for us and our Dobermann."

    Gorgeous interior with all of the necessities and more and only a 2 minute walk from amazing beaches and dunes. Close to Comber and Stalham. Jane and John are perfect hosts, easily contactable, friendly. Definitely recommended. If we could give more than 5 stars we would. Love Neil, Bev and Rocco.

    Everything at Holly Cottage was perfect for our first doggy holiday. Tastfully decorated with lovely and comfortable furnishings, everything had been thought of for a relaxing stay. Will definately be returning, so close to that fabulous beach.

  • "What a fabulous cottage!"

    Probably the best holiday-let we've ever stayed in. Small but perfectly-formed. Great quality fixtures and fittings. We slept beautifully every night. The location is great if you want to take your dog straight to a nice, clean sandy beach. The pub in between the cottage and the beach is OK.. but there are nicer pubs a short drive away. Lots to do in the area and if we weren't the sort of people to try different places every holiday, we'd happily return. Thank you for having us!

    Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are so happy to hear this and lovely that you enjoyed your week. Really appreciate you taking the time to leave this amazing feedback. Property Owner

    It was such a lovely touch with the wine, and snacks, and items provided in the kitchen and bathroom. Instructions perfect,and thank you for letting us know the property was available early . On a personal note we found the pillows one was too low, and both [2] too high .

    Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cottage and for giving us such positive feedback. Wonderful you had a super stay. As this season has been our first, we appreciate all comments made so thank you for mentioning about the pillows.

    Would definitely come back again ! PS. Don’t think we should have taken off bed sheets etc when we left !

    Thank you for the lovely feedback and taking the time to write this review. With regard to seating, we do have some more comfy deck chairs for guests to use in the shed, your comments about the outside seating we've noted.. This is our first few months of letting our cottage, so we really appreciate the feedback and comments are always taken on board, thank you. Wonderful you loved the cottage and had a lovely stay.

    The owners are lovely. You can hear the sea from the garden, and walk to the beach within 5 minutes. Resident parking behind the cottage. Many great places to eat nearby. There are so many places to visit by car, far too many to list. Visit the Broads, ride a steam train, boat trip to watch the seals. Dogs are welcome everywhere. It was a magical week.

    It was lovely to meet you on your way out. Just so wonderful to hear that you have loved your stay at our little cottage. It was restored with love and we take great pride in making it perfect for our guests. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this wonderful review.

  • "As noted in your guest book, our stay was perfect and we will definately be coming back."

    Looking forward to a wintery break so we can use the log burner after walking on the beach. As a personal preference I'd say the pillows are a bit flat and lifeless, but I assure you this only stood out because everything else was brilliant. Thankyou.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such positive feedback and so happy you had a perfect stay. Wit regard to the pillows; we decided on a good quality hollow fibre bottom pillow and a feather one on the top, but we do appreciate that everyone's preference is different so appreciate your comments. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

Renovated to an excellent standard with fabulous furnishings and homely touches.
