  • "We loved the property, its position, condition and comfort."

    Very near Norfolk Wildlife Trust Hickling Reserve, which was a revelation. Just about space for one car to park outside, but we also made use of the village car park not far away.

  • "Spotless and comfortable cottage situated in a quiet village within easy walking distance of Hickling Broad and easy driving distance of numerous attractions."

    The property has clearly been recently renovated to a high standard - the rooms are bright, airy and uncluttered. Everything we needed was provided for our family of four. Could not fault the property - we'd love to return.

    wallflower cottage did not have a dishwasher. Not a problem for us. Just pointing out an inaccuracy.

  • "Absolutely delightful cottage, in friendly village."

    We had the most wonderful time. The cottage itself was ideal for us, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy. There was nothing more we needed. The little courtyard garden was lovely to sit in with a glass of wine, on our return from our long walks, and there are so many beautiful walks from Hickling. A fantastic base. The greyhound, just up the road, was lovely local, friendly and offered great food, we actually ate there twice in one week, unheard of for us as we do like to try different places when we are away. The Ingram swan, for a night of find dining, and just a 10 minute drive away is also a must. A fantastic holiday. Feel so lucky to have found it.

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    We loved Wallflower Cottage, it is stunning. It’s very clean, comfortable & looks like lovingly & recently restored, we had a lovely stay & would definitely like to return. We have stayed in quite a few Sykes cottages & this in our opinion, is one of the best, although we have never been disappointed. We visited Horsey, Happisburgh, Sea-Palling, Winterton-On-Sea, Cromer, & Wroxham… We know the area well as we have been several times before, the beaches are all stunning. It is truly one of my favourite things to sea the seals at Horsey. The Nelson at Horsey does lovely food, The Dunes cafe at Waxham barns does lovely breakfasts. We enjoyed The Greyhound (end of the lane) friendly, welcoming & good steaks. Very sad to leave to come home but we’ll be back.

  • "Very quaint cottage in a friendly, welcoming village setting that’s accessible to many local attractions and far afield ones too."

    The cottage itself is relatively new, as immaculate inside with all the essentials to make your stay comfortable. The welcome basket of tea, coffee, sugar and milk was a nice touch in view there is no shop within the village and you’re unable to access the property until 4pm. At the front there is just about enough room for a car, although not ideal for a large vehicle. Back courtyard is small and paved but ideal for a small dog and/or toddlers (no BBQ facilities). Only criticism is that the extractor fan over the cooker makes a racket if the wind is up and in the dead of the night it becomes even more apparent. The local pub, The Greyhound serves excellent pub gastro food and the staff are exceedingly friendly, as are the locals. We ate there twice over the New Year and walked away thoroughly stuffed from just eating mains - No desserts, which is unheard of for our family

  • "Just returned home from a lovely week staying in Wallflower cottage."

    Tea, coffee sugar, milk and biscuits had been left for our arrival. Local pub, The greyhound is two minute walk, freindly staff and lovely food. We visited Sea-Palling which had a lovely beach. We walked from Sea Palling to Wexham, the sea lions were close to shore in Wexham. We took a boat ride around the Broads using Broad Tours. We had a lovely walk from Horsey Windpump to Horsey Gap and again the Sea Lions were so close. I would highly recommend the cottage as its spotless and so close to loads of things to do.
