  • "Our stay at Greenacres was fantastic, a very comfortable home away from home."

    We didn't use the smaller two sitting areas, as to keep the dogs in the kitchen diner at all times. We just used it as somewhere to put all the cushions and vases etc. The internal steps were alarming steep. The two main bedrooms used were comfortable and with ample room and storage space. The dogs loved the garden space, which also had deer in it more than once, though there was also a wasp nest. Greenacres served as a great base, we went as far north as Sheringham and as far south as Sutton Hoo. Would highly recommend Greenacres.

  • "Stunning cottage in beautiful surroundings."

    Looks like recently been completely refurbished. Has many areas and 3 sitting rooms , snug for reading and quiet. Two others with tvs. Lovely kitchen with all essentials plus laundry room. Dining room sitting room. Large garden with barbecue and fields at rear. We saw muntjac in back garden a few mornings. The stairs are a little steep but even at 74 soon got used to them. Lovely bedrooms one with on suite. Ideal for large family, we were only 3 and lost in it

  • "Property was lovely."

    Lots of space to spread out so you're not on top of each other. Well equipped kitchen. Garden was alot bigger than we expected, perfect for dogs and kids. Games room was a bit disappointing because the pool cues had no tips so couldn't play but still a nice addition to the cottage. Check out time is far too early!

  • "Beautiful remote setting."

    If peace and quiet is what you are searching for, then look no further. Despite being a cottage, the property is spacious and fully equipped with a modern feel to the rear of the property and original cottage feel to the front. We had two families of 4 staying together and there was plenty of space for all of us. The welcome pack was a nice touch and the owner popped by on the second morning to make sure we had everything and were alright. We were then left to it. Having visited for New Year, it was great that the property was tastefully decorated for Christmas, so felt like a home from home. The games room was also a nice touch for both the kids and the grown up kids! Whilst the staircase was steep, it was manageable. The property was clean throughout and clearly very well maintained. I would have no hesitation in recommending Greenacres to any of my friends or family. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    Thank you for a great review , look forward to seeing you again . Cheers Rob Property Owner

  • "Very nice house with plenty of space and everything you need in it."

    The kids loved the games room. The garden is quite large and care had been taken to dog proof it. We have a very small dog who could escape in a couple of places if he wanted to, but it was fine as we always went out with them and just kept an eye on him. There are some nice places to eat nearby and the takeaways in Loddon close by are good. We enjoyed our holiday and appreciated having such a nice house to come back to each day.

  • "Great house had everything you could want."

    Only downside is that you have to drive everywhere as you cannot walk to the pub with the dog as no paths and very small lanes

  • "We have stayed at Greenacres before and have found the cottage relaxing and well equipped and also convenient being a short drive from Norwich."

    BBQ is a great asset. Games room has something for everyone and there are 3 rooms/lounges to rest and chill out which cater for all needs. A couple with TVs and another perhaps for quiet and reading. Bedrooms and bathrooms/WC all clean, tidy, well presented. Garden is lovely, well maintained and views are great with some amazing sunrises and sunsets. Birds, Pheasants and Muntjac spotted this week. Kids were very pleased to see a new BT hub for faster internet installed and working well this season and with three kids streaming videos or music, watching online movies and playing games this was welcomed for the evening periods of down time. In the warmer months, families have the option of eating at the outside dining table. In the winter months the lounge with log fire is lovely and comforting. Cottage is clean and tidy. Owner polite and responsive if and when we have needed assistance or support. We hired a day boat from Wroxham, shopped in Norwich, Beccles and Bungay and visited seals up at Horsey Gap. Cromer No.1 for fish and chips, Great Yarmouth for crazy golf or amusements for kids. Loddon has some pleasant walks alongside the river and has pubs, takeaways, co op and butchers. Greenacres is a great base for visiting Norfolk, Suffolk and has much to offer for a quiet stay but remains near to all amenities and activities such as Norwich, Cromer or Great Yarmouth has to offer.

  • "We found the property to be very clean and welcoming."

    It is very well appointed with all the kitchen equipment we needed. There were plenty of books, DVDs and a range of toys which were appreciated. We enjoyed the games room, too. We had a small issue with a bath tap but this was quickly responded to and the tap was replaced. The garden was spacious and well maintained. We had read the description regarding the security of the garden and we checked the boundary carefully. However, within minutes of being in the garden off-lead, our whippet quickly shot through a gap in the hedge onto the road outside. Other dog owners be aware of this. (He had probably spotted wildlife!) We enjoyed morning walks in the lanes around the house before venturing by car further afield. It is very quiet and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Super cottage, never saw the owner, maybe they didn't come because it was Xmas."

    Beautifully presented and decorated for Xmas. A little dusty, young children had stayed previously? As tv screens covered with small hand prints. Stairs were steep and possibly another handrail would help. Games room a little bit of a let down, messy, v cold and really just a shed. Lack of water was an issue, only 4 of us but still unable to all have a shower in the morning. Check in time very late-5pm? Usually 2or 3pm, no flexibility even for Xmas eve was very mean spirited, would rather checked in earlier than have welcome pack-although was a nice touch. Check out 9.30am, far too early, couldn't all have showers because of water issue and didn't have time for a proper breakfast. Finaal the Toaster had been broken at some stage and only one side toasted, left a note to state it wasn't us. Cleaned and left as tidy as when we arrived. I would return as the benefits out weighed the negatives but would like arrival and departure times looked at by owner. Happy New year Sykes, looking forward to our cottage we have booked in April

    Ideally situated to explore all that Norfolk and Suffolk have to offer. The peaceful, rural location is charming and the family enjoyed the tranquility. The house is beautifully appointed and very spacious, with more than enough space to accommodate a large family with diverse interests - for example, being able to provide teenagers with their own living room was a real bonus!

  • "Overall we were happy with the property."

    It offers a great rural stay in a nicely proportioned house which is ample for 8 people. However, there was room for improvement. A small under counter fridge for a cottage that sleeps 8 people isn’t ideal. The double bedroom (2nd) has only a 4’6’ bed. It also faces east and has very thin, light curtains so in August it was broad daylight before 6am. No ice trays in the freezer. Little things that if sorted would turn good into great.

    Only prob we initially had was the induction hob, we found it difficult to use, kept turning itself off. May just have been us as we used to gas. Toaster could do with replacing as old and only a two slice one, still worked tho. Outside area looked great, although too cold and damp for us to use, time of year. Nice location, easy access to lots of other areas to visit. The only other thing we all noticed was that the pillows were flat and could possibly do with mixing some that are thicker. If in the area would stay again.

People with mobility issues should note that the stairs are quite steep and narrow. We found a lovely comprehensive welcome pack on arrival including cup cakes! We would certainly look at staying here again next time we visit this area.

    Having three reception rooms is a bonus to have a quiet moment to yourself if needed. The wood burner fire is an extra special comfort over a cold November weekend. Although we stayed over a weekend and did not cook too much, our main comment, and one that we saw had been raised quite a few times in the Guest Book, is that the kitchen really does need some more utensils and bowls (ie, pyrex bowls etc). If I were to be staying longer and therefore doing more cooking, I could foresee this to be an awkward problem.
