  • "We had two weeks at Little Flint and totally enjoyed ourselves, the cottage was in an excellent location, very quiet and peaceful with lots of wildlife."

    Jenny & Tony were very welcoming and checked how we were getting on but without being intrusive. We enjoyed coming back to the cottage after long days out and about but also had a few lovely days just taking it easy around the immediate vicinity. The cottage had everything we needed and Jenny had left a lovely welcome pack including lovely freshly collected eggs. We would recommend Little Flint for a lovely getaway holiday.

  • "Beautiful, immaculate, cottage in a lovely setting."

    We had to rush off early when we left, so didn't have time to write our thank you message in the book. Owner is lovely and made sure we had everything we needed. It was lovely sitting in the pretty garden watching the cows with their calves, the hares in the long grass, and the geese with their goslings. Thank you so much!

    The house was lovely and the surroundings very peaceful and relaxing - a quintessential farmhouse holiday. We would return again. There was not a tumble dryer but the Rayburn provided excellent drying heat and a rotary dryer in the garden for the fine weather. Dereham and swaffham are short trips away. We stony recome
