  • "The property was the cleanest we've ever stayed at."

    It was exceptionally well equipped, with everything that was needed provided, and more. The welcome pack was thoughtfully put together and way beyond what we expected. Carol and David made us so welcome and were very attentive hosts. A cottage we have every intention of returning to next year.

  • "A little tricky to find but the what-three-words on the booking was super helpful (get the app!"

    ). Robins Nest is the most perfect home away from home, so comfortable with such a beautiful outlook across the fields. It looks brand new and is spotless. They have thought of EVERYTHING, leaving a welcome pack of butter, eggs, bread, cake and a bottle of wine too. All the kitchen equipment is top of the range, there is everything you could possibly need - it was a little tricky finding the plates but we got there in the end! I would 100% recommend this place to anyone, I would happily move in and live there full time myself!!

  • "We had a fantastic two week stay here in November 2023."

    The property has everything that you need for a comfortable stay. It is immaculately clean and well stocked with an amazing welcome pack that was super appreciated. The owners are lovely and friendly. It's truly quiet and relaxing. We slept incredibly well throughout the holiday. The wildlife is amazing and we lost count of the different birds we saw. From here, for us it's both a short drive to see family and a few are further afield so the location was fabulous for exploring Norfolk. It's also well lit if you're returning later at night. The parking is easy to get in and out of with plenty of space. We were delighted with the cottage and as a few others have pointed out it really does put others in the area to shame and we've stayed in a few (most more expensive too) over the years of visiting our family. Sykes really need to use this quality as a benchmark across all of the properties they offer. We are hoping to return on our next trip home.

  • "A beautiful holiday cottage, really well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    We stayed for a week, wanting to take in some of the rural Norfolk life and absolutely loved it. There's plenty of wildlife to see just from Robin's Nest with deer, hares and all sorts of birds to see every day. Also the local pub (The Bell) is a fantastic village pub. Location - wise you can get to all points of Norfolk easily from by car so it's very well placed for day trips. David and Carol were great hosts, available if you should need anything. We'd definitely recommend this place and happily stay here again.

    It was especially nice to return each evening to such a comfortable and cosy cottage after being out in the cold, frosty weather. Lovely, peaceful location, well placed to visit the North Norfolk coast, Kings Lynn to the west, Norwich to the east and many places in between. Facilities at the cottage were excellent, including a range of brand new guides, books and maps which the owners had clearly taken great care to select. The cottage was equipped to a very high standard with many thoughtful extras. We even had a Christmas tree. It was lovely to meet the owners who were very friendly and on hand should we need anything. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
