  • "The property was everything we wanted."

    It suited us perfectly for a birthday celebration with extended family, with age range from 74years to 9 weeks.

  • "We were a party of ten adults (four couples & two singles) and the cottage suited our requirements perfectly in early September."

    The open plan living room/kitchen/dining room worked well for us and we didn't need to use the second sitting room, but it would be useful for a quiet room to go to for reading or relaxing. The cottage is well equipped with modern facilities and is located in a very quiet location with no light pollution- great for looking at the stars on a clear night. There is a useful outdoor terrace with seating for ten which was nice for afternoon tea or a glass of wine pre-dinner. The bunk bed room is not just for children (the owner's description referred to children sized beds) but we had an adult use the bottom bunk which is full size. There is plenty of off-road parking in the sloping drive. We brought our bikes & had two rides round the local area on quiet roads as well as good walking to the Broads. We ate out three times in Loddon which is about four miles away and used a local taxi firm (for ten of us this was £60 return in total in two taxis). We also did a boat ride on the Broads & had a day in Norwich (about 8 miles NW of the cottage). We also had lunch & a wine tasting at Chet Vineyards (an easy walk from the cottage) which was fun, but a little expensive at £50 pp. We also enjoyed a day out on the coast in Southwold- about forty minutes drive. We would highly recommend a stay at the cottage for a big group of friends or families. The only minor issues to mention are that if you plan on cooking a meal the evening you arrive, the Aga cooker takes a couple of hours or more to heat up. We couldn't initially find the key to the apartment in the garden, which was in the cupboard in the main house & the instructions about that were not obvious- the owner should have left them in the hallway (which is where the spare main front door key was located). We enjoyed our stay & we were blessed with lovely weather- thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage especially New modern large open plan area."

    We did not know till day 6 that we could switch off the AGA, as it was very hot in very hot weather, please either turn off aga in summer or add to instruction book. Luckily we bought our own fans, but no fans were provided if very warm as bedrooms are in the roof. The microwave in the oven is not as useful as a separate cheap microwave would be. The outside villa was not as expected as per photos I.e.no kitchen, fridge etc. Two small bedrooms upstairs, there was no were to hang clothes, so a wardrobe or hanging rail would be really helpful.

    Very nice inside. Was surprised how far it was from the main roads, but lots of wild life in the area.

  • "Lovely holiday, beautiful house."

    It seemed a very short holiday as we only had 6 nights there (6 pm arrival on Sat .. 9am departure on Friday) which we agreed to and had a cheque reimbursement and understood the circumstances. This is NOT a complaint .. we still enjoyed our stay thanks

  • "We all enjoyed our stay at Cherry Tree cottage."

    It is very spacious with tasteful decoration to a high standard. It is also well equipped with fittings and furniture throughout of good quality. Armchair seating in the lounge could get a bit cramped but we all found our own space. The single television did require a bit of management between the grandchildren’s game consoles and adult viewing. All contributing to an enjoyable holiday. However, we found a few niggly things that I feel necessary to provide comments. 1. The property is described as pet friendly but a close inspection of the boundary fences revealed large gaps through which our small dog would escape. Also a large gap beneath the main entrance gate. 2. The large dishwasher lower rack did not roll smoothly in and out of the machine. It appeared that one of the front wheels was misplaced and one was missing. This was found in a glass dish on the window sill. Within 30 seconds it was fixed. 3. The toilet seat in the annex was loose and made it difficult to use. 4. Our arrival time for key collection was delayed by two hours and we had to vacate an hour earlier. Told it was for additional cleaning to meet Covid 19 requirements. Personally I could see no evidence of any additional cleaning. Yes, the cottage and annex was reasonably clean but not that clean. The hand sanitiser just inside the main entrance for instance. Given the months when the property was not being rented it should have been spotless. As I said, we had a very nice time, loved the cottage and grounds despite the dramatic change in the English weather.

    Spacious, kids and dog loved it. Superb facilities. Set in very peaceful environment. Plenty of outside area if you want a quieter space. Some of the outside could do with a little tlc, but it didn't in any way detract from overall enjoyment.

  • "We have just returned from Cherry tree cottage in Norfolk."

    I have tried complaining to you about the lack of cleanliness but you have referred me to this feedback form. You might like to read the email I sent you yesterday. It covers that the fridge had not been cleaned in a very long time, the bin still had material waste in it, had not had a bin liner in it so had to be cleaned out. There was rubbish on the floors in most rooms, including things like cotton wool in the bathrooms and bedrooms. There had obviously been a 60th birthday party there because there were the remains of the decorations. The coffee machine had grouts in, several weeks old and growing mould. The hall had a couple of dozen dead flies. We could find just 1 cleaning sponge, and 1 bottle of cleaning fluid, to clean a large kitchen, including washing up, and 4 bathrooms. It’s hardly surprising therefore that everything was dirty. This was a special celebration for us and was somewhat spoiled by the condition of the cottage. We have stayed in many cottages. This is a large, and expensive, cottage and we expected higher standards. I am particularly concerned about this as I have booked the cottage for a week in May for our family to stay in while attending a wedding in the area. I am really worried that we will experience the same extremely poor housekeeping. Please can you reply to this?

    Firstly, may I say that I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Cherry Tree Cottage. Secondly, I am surprised that you say that our cottage was not properly cleaned. 1. The fridge is cleaned every time, without fail, when our guests leave. 2. I must assume that when the bin liner was removed a small amount of waste was spilt, however a new bin liner should have been put in place and at that time the spillage would have been noticed and cleaned. The coffee machine should have been cleaned - I do apologise. 3. Regarding your comments on cleaning materials. We always put new jay cloths at each of the two kitchen sinks, plus a scouring sponge, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, Dettol cleaning spray and a kitchen roll. I believe this to be sufficient for three nights stay. 4. As you know we are surrounded by farmland and are therefore subject to insects entering the property from time-to-time. We do our best to deal with them as soon as possible. 5. I do not understand your comments regarding rubbish on the floors. Every part of the cottage is vacuumed and all hard floors washed before guests arrive. It is unfortunate that I was away on holiday before and during you stay, because I routinely check on all aspects of cleanliness before guests arrive; I also check with guests within the first two hours of their arrival that all is well. After three years without complaint I was upset to read your e-mail and it is hard to believe that my cleaner, who is a loyal family member would fall below her normal standards. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at the cottage and on the whole it was very well equipped and we loved the extra supplies that had been left, however during the course of the week we found a few a niggles that need to be addressed by the owners."

    They are as follows: 1. The kettle lid kept leaping up when switched on, we had to move it as it was placed under a cupboard 2. Another toaster would be helpful. When everyone is having breakfast in a 12 bedroom house, more equipment is needed 3. More teaspoons are needed, there aren't enough 4. A couple of spot lights in the living room need replacing, they keep flashing 5. A couple of spot lights on the landing need replacing, they keep flashing 6. There was a lot of dust under the sofas in the living room area 7. The carpet in the living hadn't been hoovered either 8. The bathroom door didn't close in the annex 9. The fabric place mats all needed a wash On the whole we had a great week and loved the house and gardens

    Firstly, may I say I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at Cherry Tree Cottage and thank you for your comments which we have addressed as follows - Kettle - this has been replaced. Toaster - this has now been provided. Teaspoons - these are forever disappearing but we have now replenished the supply. Spotlights - these have been replaced. Carpets - the cottage is hoovered throughout and the hard floors washed upon every guests turn round. The sofa is not moved every time as it is very heavy and is also dependant on time availability between turn round cleaning/preparation. Further, we have purchased a second rug so one can be in situ whilst the other is away for cleaning. Bathroom door - we still await the carpenter and will chase him up. Place mats - we are looking for something more appropriate but in the meantime these have been washed. Property Owner

    .. although an eventful one!! We stayed on the hottest day of the year and there was a Thunderstorm that set the alarm off in the night... even though it was 4.15 in the morning I called the number and it was dealt with immediately which was excellent! The place was beautiful with plenty of inside and outside space which is totally private. It’s in a great location for towns, beaches and plenty more to do. I’d highly recommend the cottage to anyone wanting to stay in Norwich area.
