  • "Everything in this cottage was 5 star"

    I’m pleased you think so and enjoyed your holiday, fabulous weather Property Owner

  • "Everything provided for a comfortable care free holiday."

    Plenty of things to do when in the cottage - TV, music centre, DVDs. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking a 'proper' meal, not just to warm up takeaways - but you could if you wanted to. I would suggest providing a steamer set of pans to cut down on energy usage, but there were enough other pans to accommodate what were wanted to cook. Cottage is ideally placed to see the local attractions - Sandringham House and Gardens, Hunstanton, King's Lynn, Vancouver Gardens, Castle Acre Priory and Castle etc. All in all, this was a good find for our holiday cottage and we wouldn't hesitate to book the place again if visiting the area.

    We’re so pleased you enjoyed stay and look forward to you visiting again. Property Owner

  • "Cosy, comfortable, beautifully decorated."

    Just perfect for our needs. Would definitely recommend and plan to return. Owners helpfully provided information on the local area (where there is so much to do), even providing an OS map with signed places of interest and good pubs and restaurants. There was also a very generous welcome pack-the wine for us and the sweets for the kids were gratefully received. Thank you.

    We’re so pleased you’ve had a lovely time in Bertelle and Norfolk and look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

  • "The property was just perfect."

    It was clean and comfortable, with lots of room to relax. Christine provided a number of thoughtful touches such as the welcome gift box, stair gate and booster seat for little ones. I can't think of anything that was missing. It was a perfect base for exploring great beaches, various walks and pretty villages. The village shop is very well stocked and is less than two minutes walk away. All in all, it was the perfect getaway, in a perfect property. Thank you for such a lovely time.

    It was comfortable well equipped, from the kitchen to the bedrooms. We had one small problem which the owner fixed very quickly, also the owner followed up the problem to make sure everything was OK. The cottage is in a nice little village, Grimston from here you can go in many directions to do all you sightseeing.

  • "The accommodation was very good especially for people who are fit, healthy and have no mobility issues."

    Can we suggest, that a sentence in the description of the property, states not suitable for people with mobility problems. When we booked this back in January, my mobility was not too bad, but over lockdown has deteriorated immensely. The stairs are steep and steps higher than the modern depth, and then having a further step up into the bedrooms, was quite difficult. We had to use the stair gate each night and leave the light on to advoid falling down the stairs whilst partially awake in the night. Also, the lounge seating was very low and impossible to get up from if your legs were weak. Having said this, the place was very well equipped, we just feel something should be stated in the details to avoid other people meeting these problems

    Everything appeared new and in full working order and the kitchen really did have everything you could need. A nice quiet village with easy access to all local routes - a short trip to the local supermarket and very close to Kings Lyn and the coast. The small shop in the village supplied just about everything you could think of. Lots of walks and cycle routes (off road) on the doorstep so no need to drive anywhere unless you want to.

  • "It's some years since we had a self catering cottage holiday, and how things have changed if this one is anything to go by."

    Gone are the mismatching crockery and cutlery, the paper thin towels and poor equipment. The owners had thought of everything and provided it as if they were going to stay themselves. There was a welcome basket including a bottle of wine, Duchy biscuits, crisps and tea, coffee, sugar and milk, all of which were much appreciated. A comprehensive renters manual told us all we needed to know, and the OS map with local tourist attractions, pubs/restaurants and recommended routes marked on it was a touch of genius The kitchen was a dream to work, and the lounge/dining room was superbly comfortable. Upstairs both bedrooms were well beyond what we expected in terms of equipment and comfort. There was even room to stow the cushions out of the way (Bloke's comment!). In the bathroom there was a spacious separate shower as well as a huge bath Outside there was plenty of room to park and enjoy the evening sun, in fact the weather was so good we ate in the garden most nights. (Unfortunately we didn't figure out how to put the cover back on the sun umbrella without shinning up the pole. Hope the owner found it in the cushion storage box) The village store across the road is well stocked and reasonably priced. All in all this was a superb cottage
