First impressions were ok but cleanliness was only superficial, the kitchen and mats in the lounge were very dirty. Surfaces around the property had not been checked for grease and dust. We found the beds to be uncomfortable and there was a problem with flies. The water temperature in the shower was difficult to control and the shower dirty. The garden was lovely and our dogs loved it but an outside light would be a good idea and a retractable washing line would be better than the existing washing line which my husband kept getting his head caught on along with the low lights on the landing and low beam going into the kitchen. Reviewed by LindaSep 2023 "Lovely cottage, comfortable, clean, everything provided, lovely welcome pack (the home made marmalade was delicious)." Blessed with glorious weather for September. Cottage well located for visitor attractions and the coast. Foundary Arms provides excellent food and within walking distance. Slight issue with hot water but promptly sorted with a telephone call with the owners. Would recommend this property. Reviewed by EdwinaSep 2023 "Amazing property." Ideal location. Very quiet and peaceful. Not far from local shops and amenities and the pub down the road does some amazing meals. Especially the pizza's. Book in when you arrive as gets very busy. Cottage was well equipped and clean throughout although we could not find a potato masher when we did a roast. Made do with old fashion fork. Garden trainquil and secluded and was ideal for evening BBQ's. Reviewed by NealAug 2023 "We were looking forward to this out first break in 3 years, however we only stayed 4 nights as we found the beds really uncomfortable, the mattresses are not good, on the 4 night of poor sleep my wife slept in a single bed hoping for a better night, however she ended up with around 8 flea bites down her leg, must be a result of dogs sleeping there and beds not being then cleaned correctly." To add the TV signal constantly froze, the oven smelt and isn’t the best with the markings around the dial being worn away you just take pot luck when cooking, to cap it off we were just inundated with flies. We messaged the owner and the truth is they are not interested. We certainly won’t be going back. Reviewed by LeeJun 2023 "This was a wonderful property, beautifully situated and beautifully decorated throughout." Bedrooms were spacious; downstairs, the lounge and dining area were also very roomy. The kitchen was extremely well-equipped and spacious, and the garden space outside small but well tended, Decor and furnishings were of a high quality, with parking for 2 vehicles available. Altogether, a wonderful property, ideal for the larger family. Reviewed by GarryJun 2023 "We actually felt that the listing of the propertry didn't do it justice as it is beautifully fitted out in great taste and has so much space." One thing that did puzzle us: no rack on the draining board, which made it very hard to dry dishes and cutlery if they weren't going to be put in the dishwasher. Reviewed by AndrewMay 2023 "What a fantastic cottage." This is our second time here and love the property. Such a wonderful location. Great local pub. The cottage is so well equipped that cooking for a family is made easy. The decor is superb with many wonderful pictures and gorgeous wooden artefacts. It is spacious and everyone has separate areas to choose to relax. Either in the lounge with the tv or a reading area. Or sat at the dining table completing jigsaw puzzles, eating and drinking. Bedrooms are comfortable. In addition a lovely welcome pack which include treats for the dog. Thank you. Reviewed by ElaineMay 2023 "Only adverse comment, the shower was difficult to control the temperature." Reviewed by WilliamMay 2023 "Very nice property, our second year staying there." Very clean and well maintained. When we had an issue with the boiler when we arrived we were able to contact the owner right away and get it easily sorted. Reviewed by BenApr 2023 "A delightful stay at Church Cottage." Opening the door and stepping into Church Cottage was enough to know our week here was going to be perfect. The quality of the interiors with appropriate personal touches is lovely. The kitchen has excellent facilities with everything provided. A large fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher are perfect additions. The cottage is extremely comfortable with plenty of relaxing seating around the beautiful feature log burner. The bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious with plenty of storage. The cottage garden is particularly attractive, so relaxing and quiet to sit outside surrounded by pretty planting with plenty of garden birds to spot. We especially enjoyed watching the resident bluetits making their home in the nesting box. The garden is extremely secure for a dog, which is perfect. The cottage is located on an extremely quiet lane in Northrepps within short car journeys of plenty of Norfolk's attractions. If you are looking for the perfect cottage to return to after visiting all of the places the beautiful Norfolk coastline has to offer, I would have no hesitation in recommending Church Cottage.

Well equipped with everything you would need. Lovely welcome pack with wine and other goodies for us and the dog! Designated walk through the church grounds to open fields, ideal for doggy walking, just on the doorstep. Reviewed by JoyceOct 2022 "Great place and the cottage was lovely." . Thanks for letting us stay in your home.. Reviewed by LenSep 2022 "Brilliant but could not get enough hot water for shower but we are hardy and understand the cost at the moment" Reviewed by StephenSep 2022 "Loved the property and enjoyed staying." It is quirky and very nicely appointed. The village is very pretty and enjoyed the garden and views. A couple of very minor issues that the owners might want to know about, the shower in the en suit needs a new hose as it leeks rather badly round the top, and the pillows are a bit thin. However these minor issues did not spoil our stay. Reviewed by SueAug 2022 "Beautiful property and very spacious." Enjoyed the ‘welcome pack’ especially the home made marmalade. Well stocked with everything you need.

We loved everything about the cottage and had nothing to worry about. The owners and Amanda were accommodating and kept us informed at all times. Reviewed by MikeOct 2021 "Lovely spotless clean house everything there to make a brilliant holiday ..." Lovely spotless clean house everything there to make a brilliant holiday couldn't fault anything foundry arms in village amazing but advise you to book early as it took us till Wednesday to get a table Reviewed by LindaOct 2021 "The cottage is extremely well equipped and spacious (it would be difficult for the photo's to do it justice)." The welcome pack was a lovely addition, and there were lots of books, games etc. provided. The local pub is a great bonus - good service and food. Although we arrived when the 'petrol crisis' struck, it did not spoil our holiday (we managed to fill up at Morrisons in Cromer). We visited Mundesley, Cromer, Norwich, Sheringham several times, went on the North Norfolk steam railway (highly recommended), Holt, Felbrigg Hall, and Cley marshes, where we saw Iolo Williams from Springwatch - if it is good enough for him, it is definitely good enough for us. Thanks to the owners and to Sykes, for a wonderful holiday. Reviewed by JeanSep 2021 "We left comments for the owners which were very complimetary, but making the suggestion that a handrail in the shower over the bath would have been very helpful." But otherwise we had a wonderful week in a beauitiful part of the country and the cottage was truly excellent. Reviewed by KathSep 2021 "The beds could really do with being changed neither of us slept well in them, very hard and springs felt through them." Also needs a bigger kitchen bin as we had a baby so we cooked at the house alot so needed to get rid of rubbish. I also think the ensuite needs a refresh as looking tired. Reviewed by KellyAug 2021 "Ideal base for cycling excursions and exploring the Norfolk coast." Excellent local pub. Reviewed by HilaryJul 2021 "This is our third stay in this lovely cottage."

Reviewed by D JAug 2020 "The location was far better than expected a fantastic 15 minute walk up a quiet lane and you were in oversands with all its history and fantastic beach." Not to mention a great pub that does good with a beer garden was just perfect. The play area meant we could have a drink in peace. The best kept secret in Norfolk. Reviewed by DaveJul 2020 "A superb cottage in a lovely, peaceful village." It was much bigger than expected and contained everything we needed. The Foundry Arms nearby was a friendly place with delicious food. We would love to stay here again. Reviewed by JanetNov 2019 "Our second time at this cottage this year- we love it." Perfect for us with two dogs. Great location for exploring North Norfolk. Cottage is quirky, cosy and well equipped. We loved cooking here and dining at that fabulous dining table over a bottle of wine or two! We will be back. Reviewed by SarahOct 2019 "We had a great time despite a couple of rather wet days, one of which we spent mostly in Church Cottage which was warm and comfortable." The beautiful south facing courtyard garden was very sheltered and sunny during a day of very strong wind. The surrounding area is lovely and very peaceful and the local community friendly. Attractions in Cromer and further afield, both inland and along the coast are plentiful and Cromer crabs and fish and chips definitely things not to be missed. We will look forward to another visit in the near future, hopefully at the same venue. Reviewed by JillSep 2019 "Lovely spacious cottage, ideal for us 5 adults and a dog." Good location if you have a car or like to walk. Very peaceful. Reviewed by ClareAug 2019 "Great location, with footpath that took only 20 mins to walk to Overstrand beach." The house is bigger than the photos convey. Reviewed by PeterAug 2019 "Definitely worthy of being a Sykes cottage." Much bigger than we expected. Well equipped kitchen and a lovely welcome gift. Everything was of high quality and very clean. Our only criticism was that the two large beds were not comfortable ...we were used to memory foam toppers. The villagers were very friendly, especially at the church and local pub. All the local beaches were dog-friendly, and restaurants and cafes.Plenty of local walks for the dog, especially to Overstrand Beach. Reviewed by JanetJun 2019 "Cottage very clean with nice touches in the welcome pack and logs for the fire." Reviewed by DavidJun 2019 "Beautiful cottage, the pictures don't do it justice." Could maybe benefit from an outside light in the garden and garden furniture needs updating,which is just a small thing. The walks from the door are perfect and the village pub very friendly with excellent food, would recommend highly. Reviewed by JosephineMay 2019 "The cottage was in a quiet location, in a lovely village, a stroll away from a very nice pub." The house was much larger than I expected, with the bedrooms all of generous proportions. It was lovely having the wood burning stove,too, which we lit on our first night. We had a very comfortable stay, and would like to return. Reviewed by AnneMay 2019 "Church Cottage,top place to stay we all had a good time and really enjoyed our time in this excellent cottage." Close to coast and just a short hop to shops.Thanks to who organised the weather. Reviewed by RogerMay 2019 "We had a brilliant week at Church Cottage." We walked to Overstrand beach most days with our 2 dogs and on other days visited local National Trust properties with good dog walks. The cottage was a home from home. Extremely clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend Sykes and would like to return to Church Cottage at some stage in the future. Thank you!

The garden, although small, was safe and fine for the grandchildren to play in. Everything about the cottage was well appointed and thought out. The Welcome Pack was a very nice surprise, and helped us get over an exceptionally long drive there, due to excessive traffic. As there were no local shops in the village, we shopped at the larger Co-op in Cromer, which took very little time to get there through the country lanes avoiding the traffic in Cromer. We all enjoyed a very relaxing holiday. Reviewed by JaneAug 2018 "We were pleasantly surprised by how large and comfortable the cottage was, the pictures didn’t do it justice!" The added homely extras made it even better - the box filled with games was a big hit with our daughter! Loved the big armchairs in the snug, so comfortable. The only suggestion I would make is to cut back the bushes next to the driveway, we found it quite difficult to park in there with enough space to get in and out easily. Reviewed by CathyAug 2018 "The cottage was well presented." The welcome pack was very welcome after a tedious 7 hour drive (should have been 4.5 hrs!); especially the red wine! We did consider booking for our break in October, unfortunately Church Cottage is not available, next year perhaps. We only heard the church bell ringers once during our fortnight, shame, they were very good; much better than our local campanologists! Having looked through the comments book at the cottage it became very clear that many of the visitors were repeat guests, what better recommendation can you have; we hope to become returnees too! A very relaxing peaceful break, plenty to do and see and an undersold garden! Reviewed by MarkJun 2018 "We loved the house & the immediate area." So quiet, just the birds. Very attractive spacious easy to live in accommodation. Very homely & all mod cons. Easy to use appliances. Very comfortable bedrooms. Sykes has not disappointed us after a few lovely holidays, no reservation about recommending them. Easy access to N. T Properties & wildlife reserves & coast. (Only negative was using bath tap. Due to shower screen virtually impossible to reach/manage taps without getting in bath. Which made adjusting temperature very awkward). Otherwise Top Marks. 2 more Sykes hols this year to enjoy - Yorkshire Dales & Cumbria.

Easy parking either next to the front or back door so great for unloading the car. The place is huge. Every room is bigger than the pictures suggested. Two of the bedrooms have a great view of the church but don't worry as the bells only sound on a Sunday! Fully equipped large kitchen. The split lounge is a fantastic idea and works really well. Everything provided and all high spec. Enclosed garden. Super dog walks in all directions and the local pub does quality food. One of the best places we've stayed. Reviewed by RobertSep 2016 "We really enjoyed our holiday in the cottage." We arrived late at night due to traffic delays en-route and appreciated the "Welcome pack" that awaited us. We thought the cottage was probably the best equipped accommodation we have encountered in may years of holiday rental. It was obvious the owners lavished much care in the presentation of their property.
