  • "My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Well Cottage during our 3week stay during the holidays."

    Proximity to our family in Grimston was a 2 minute walk, didn’t need a car rental. Very unique place, well maintained and affordable.

    So much thought has obviously gone into this property, it is exceptionally well equipped. The beds were so comfortable. Highly recommended property to explore the area and only a few miles from Sandringham.

  • "An excellent choice, a stunning house just like the photos, I informed Andrew we would be a late evening arrival after our car had broken down the previous day meaning a 7 hr wait for a low loader."

    Andrew was so kind even placing extra groceries in the house so there would be food for the evening and breakfast the following day. I shall always be grateful for the kindness shown to my family thank you very much

    Hi Wendy, It really was a pleasure! So glad that the family had a lovely time! Very best wishes! Andrew Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage full of period features and superbly maintained."

    Extra details and little touches such as extended cooking utensils, aprons and ingredients were much appreciated. An excellent selection of reading matter is available in the cottage and further touches such as bathrobes and a Dyson fan, plus 2 hairdryers were really helpful. Cottage and garden are extremely comfortable and neighbour is very nice. Just one point to note is that the Sykes listing refers to a pub 0.1 miles away. This pub (the Bell Inn) is now just a B & B. This was no loss to us however as we had a great time staying in and enjoying our own cooking. We would thoroughly recommend Well Cottage for guests who enjoy exploring historic houses and local culture.

    Hi William! So nice to hear this lovely feedback! Do come again! Very best wishes! Andrew Property Owner

  • "Superb cottage in nice village."

    Handy for nearby Norfolk attractions, Hunstanton, Kings Lynn, Sandringham etc. Ideal for nature lovers. We had an excellent week. Details on rubbish disposal in instruction book would help. Bathroom was great but a non-slip mat in shower might be a good idea.

    Hi William, So pleased to hear your positive feedback and also little ways we can improve. Very best wishes! Andrew Property Owner
