  • "Beautiful cottage, clean and so comfortable"

  • "Loved the cottage, it was clean and so nicely furnished."

    We liked the added touch of coffee, tea bags and milk available. We left the place as we found it, floors all hoovered and washed etc. It's nice to be nice and we had a nice time. Thanks again. Will definitely return. Best wishes Russ

  • "Lovely cottage, very clean and comfortable."

    Especially nice for our dog as the garden is totally enclosed so could just leave the back door open and he could come and go as he pleased. Cottage nice and cool inside which was a bonus as we were there in the Sept heatwave

  • "Lovely property."

    Secure for pooches. Very quiet location. Shop is really handy and a few steps away. The pub in the village is very quiet and no longer serves food.

  • "Very inaccurate/fraudulent listing."

    1. There is no Sky Q package, just freeview via Sky Q Box. 2. The kitchen is not well equipped. Three saucepans, a couple of frying pans and a selection of dirty baking trays and roasting tins - that's it. Even the cutlery was dirty and mismatched. There was no teapot, teacups, ovenproof dishes etc., not even a table spoon to serve up veg. We had to buy some oven proof dishes. 3. The king size bed only has a double mattress on it, and this exposes the metal frame. It's metal footboard is broken, and has a sharp edge. A king size topper has been added but this makes it impossible for the fitted sheets to stay put. Be prepared to refit the sheets during the night. 4. The mattresses in the second bedroom have not toppers and can best be described as instruments of torture - glad we didn't have to use them. 5. The tea and coffee containers need emptying. They look like they have been there for years. The coffee was one solid lump. I wasn't expecting a welcome pack, but a pint of milk rather than the individual out of date UHT pots that look like they have been stolen from some cafe would have been welcome. 6. The 'plush' sofas were dirty and worn out. They were very low and you sank even lower when you sat on them, very difficult to get out of. They offered no support and the low backs made watching the very high level TV painful after about 30 minutes. 7. There is no shaver socket in the bathroom and no adaptor provided in the bedroom. We had to buy an adaptor. 8. The tumble dryer has been taken out and no replaced, even although it is still shown in the pictures. Change the picture or replace the tumble dryer. 9. The front and back door locks need maintenance or replacing. It felt like they were going to break every time they were locked or unlocked. 10. The garden furniture needs a good clean. The table and chairs were green and could not be used. 11. Even the directions to the property are pure giberish. Instead of giving directions from the major approaches, they appear to give directions from a car park in Thetford, but with some of the stages mixed. Summary. I could go on and on. Basically the cottage and decor was lovely, but things have not been maintained, repaired or replaced when needed. Numerous sticky notes left by light switches etc. asking 'people' rather than guests to turn them off says it all. It was not welcoming. The were no recommendations of where to eat etc. and the local pubs listed were closed most days and when open were just boozers offering no food. The area was run and felt like a sink estate with graffiti on walls, grass growing through abandoned toys in unkempt gardens, and bins left outside with rubbish stacked next to them all the time.

  • "Nice place , we found the sofas too low and uncomfortable, and the beds especially the bunk bed one , uncomfortable."

    Would suggest black out curtains as very difficult in bright light to get to sleep . Also decking needs attention , it's very uneven and an accident waiting to happen .

  • "Second visit because this is a great cottage for dogs."

    Large safe enclosed garden for them to play in. Good location close to Thetford Forest and the village is attractive. There is a convenience store just round the corner now, which is useful. Avoid the chip shop though, it is awful.

  • "Had a lovely festive stay."

    It was very clean upon arrival and decorated with Christmas decorations, which we didn't expect! Great utensils in the kitchen to cook Christmas Dinner, and very cosy when the wood burner was on. The location was peaceful and only a short drive from local shops. Would definitely recommend a fish supper from Rumbles. The only downside was that there seemed to be no hot water after 6pm, however, I will definitely be booking again, and the dogs loved it!

    Thank you for your feedback glad you enjoyed your Christmas stay at chalk cottage we will look at the timing on the thermostate it's probably just been moved to a different time setting Have a happy new year Hope to see you visit again thanks Property Owner

  • "A lovely, comfortable cottage with a great garden for us and our dog."

    We felt that our dog was also made to feel very welcome at the cottage and it was great to see a bed and bowls for him. The cottage was very clean and had good facilities including a washing machine, dryer and a very good sized fridge and freezer (which you do not often have in a holiday cottage). We would come and stay in Chalk Cottage again because of the high standards and its position to places of interest for us. Thank you!

The property

Feltwell 4.2 miles.

Tucked away in the civil parish of Methwold near Feltwell in Norfolk, is this superb two-bedroom character cottage, Chalk Cottage.

Dating back to the 1850’s this historic cottage takes its name from its make-up of chalk and flint and enjoys an idyllic location with a private enclosed garden and easy access to Brandon and Thetford, making Chalk Cottage an ideal dwelling for a family of four or two couples with two furry friends who are looking to explore Norfolk.

Be welcomed into the spacious living/dining room, where you can look forward to curling up on the plush sofas and relaxing in front of your favourite film on the 48” TV with Sky, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Pop on your chef’s hat and take your place in the well-equipped kitchen, with washing machine, fridge/freezer and electric oven and hob, ensuring you have everything you need to whip up culinary delights.

Fold out the conveniently stored dining table, uncork a bottle of wine and settle down to savour a delicious meal before toasting to a wonderful holiday.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair on the private patio?

Make your way up to the first-floor where you will find a bathroom where you can pour in the bubbles and indulge in a soothing soak in the bath, as well as two-well presented bedrooms, a double with wall-mounted TV, ideal for those lazy Sunday mornings and a triple bunk which is suitable for both adults and children, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Take advantage of Chalk Cottages’ location with the well-loved chip shop of Rumbles just a stone’s throw away, as well as The George, a village pub which also serves tasty food and local ales, both perfect options for when you fancy a night off from the kitchen.

For keen anglers, there are two fantastic fishing lakes nearby, Thornham Fishing Lakes and Fendick’s Fishery, where you can find your catch of the day!

After days of exploring, why not treat your guests to a pamper or relaxing massage at the Hythe Court Spa?

Just a short drive away is the agricultural village of Feltwell, where you will find a delightful selection of convenience shops where you can pick up ingredients to recreate your favourite holiday meals so far, welcoming pubs and an excellent 9-hole golf course.

Walkers and cyclists will delight at the close proximity to Thetford Forest Park, which offers scenic trails, including the Thetford Heath National Nature Reserve, offering superb views, opportunities to spot the local wildlife, as well as the popular Go Ape where you can explore the forest walking along the treetops!

Head into Thetford town centre where you will find the Ancient House Museum, the fascinating ruins of the medieval Thetford Priory, the popular Thetford Golf Club and the lush Castle Park.
