    The cottage was very clean, well set out and well equipped . The welcome pack was very much appreciated. We loved how the house was decorated for Christmas and it all added to our festive holiday. The cottage is ideally located for visiting Sandringham and the roads were easy to navigate in the snow blizzard. We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone visiting North Norfolk.

    My wife and I plus our to grand children [boys aged 10] ventured out to different places to the coast Fakenham, Holt, Kings Lynn. The village is very quiet with a good health centre and a local shop about a 100 yards away. The property had everything you required and had good quality furnishings and appliances.

    Decor, furnishings, appliances, and overall cleanliness were all top-notch. Such a great location for exploring the area, we did all the tourist highlights and some lovely pubs close by.

    We just felt that the outside of the property could do with a little bit of tlc - weeds at the front, fences/walls could do with being painted at the rear but overall these are just minor improvements that would elevate this property to excellent in our opinion.

    Thank you for your very positive review. Coincidentally, the cottage is being painted next week and the wall repaired. We had set aside 2 weeks for maintenance beginning September . Property Owner

    Convenient for all North Norfolk. There are a couple of pubs nearby who serve good food. There is a nearer Pub but that is closed and has been sold. Local shop within a couple of hundred yards.

  • "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.

  • "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

    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

Bertelle is a wonderful, former post office, resting in the heart of Grimston, Norfolk.

Equally perfect for families or friends, this retreat makes a lovely base to return to, whether you are looking for somewhere to socialise or simply relax.

Decorated to a high standard, you can make yourselves right at home amongst the heart-warming furnishings and cosy ambience, which flows throughout the whole interior.

The living/dining room is centred by a characterful fireplace, one side of the layout holds a beautiful, plush corner sofa, where you can unwind after a day full of exploration, whilst the other houses a spacious dining table.

The kitchen is wonderfully designed with neutral-coloured units, a stunning stone feature wall and a contemporary overtone to complement the sophisticated feel of the property, an idyllic place to whip up culinary creations for the whole family!

When it comes to a good night's sleep, choose from two bedrooms; the first is presented as a super-king-size with a zip/link option, whilst the second is home to a king-size bed; both are serviced by a sleek bathroom.

Views of the countryside bring a glimpse of the outside in, providing a lovely outlook to wake up to.

After readying yourself for the afternoon, why not join your friends for a barbecue, or enjoy a refreshing moment or two on the outdoor furniture?

A 15 minute walk away is The Three Horseshoes pub which does serve food.

For keen ramblers there are a whole host of walking routes encompassing the property offering endless opportunities to admire the picturesque countryside, breath-taking coast and the wildlife residing in it.

In addition, bird watchers have a selection of attractions to choose from, with the Snettisham and Titchwell RSPB reserves only a short drive away.

Those looking to experience the coast will find Snettisham and Heacham beach, both famed for their spectacular sunsets nearby as well as Old Hunstanton beach which is backed by impressive cliffs and is renowned for its vast amounts of sand during low tide.

Bertelle has everything for a memorable escape with loved ones.
