    Inside and outside the property was smart, clean and beautifully maintained. The decor and furnishings were tasteful and made for a super comfortable stay. Owners were helpful and friendly from the word go. There simply was not anything about the cottage that could be improved. It was perfect.

  • "Foxley Wood cottage is ideally located for exploring Norfolk."

    It is characterful and well maintained with its own enclosed gravel and grass area. It contained every appliance needed aside from a dishwasher. The bedroom is spacious and nicely decorated. The only possible negative is it’s close proximity to Norwich airport runway but it didn’t impact on our stay, in fact it was interesting to see the various planes and helicopters at such close quarters.

    To find a lovely place to stay like Foxley Wood was just perfect. It was lovely and clean, comfortable and quiet with everything you require to really enjoy the Norfolk area. We will definitely book this special place again so that we can enjoy a relaxing escape from the speed of normal day life.

  • "Everything about the property exceeded our expectations."

    If I was be picky I would say the only 2 things that could of been improved on was it was very limited as to what you could watch on tv during the evenings. A freeview box would of been more than enough. As we had really nice weather it was nice to sit out the front & sit in the sun, though we were very limited as there was enough parking for 3 cars & it would of been ideal if the parking space was cut down a bit & the patio area made a big bigger. As I said, I was being very picky as everything about the property was first class & in such a lovely area.

  • "Well located for numerous excursions around north, central and east Norfolk."

    A short car journey to Norwich too. (Norwich is hell to park in though; a great pity as we had to give up on exploring this once so important and prosperous city.) A great many brochures and booklets with information about what to do and see in Norfolk is available in the cottage. The WiFi is excellent. The TV reception is very poor which didn't bother me, Anna, in the least but my partner Keith was disappointed. Well equipped with a large fridge-freezer, a microwave oven, an electric induction hob and oven as well as a washing machine (!) along with basic kitchen equipment, clothes pegs, clothes airer (for drying laundry) and dustpan & brush and other odds and ends. There was 1 pint of milk in the fridge when we arrived as well as a few tea bags, coffee pods and a packet of biscuits.

    My lovable mad Springer Poodle cross and I loved it and felt right at home. We used the cottage as a base to visit family, explore, have some down time, and even do a couple of days work! Managed to cook a roast dinner on Easter Sunday, which went down well. Lovely setting, totally dog safe, very comfortable. Friendly and welcoming owners. Thank you so much for the Easter Egg, milk and biscuits - put a smile on my face as soon as I walked in.

    Lovely secure area for our dog. The one negative was finding it...the NR 10 postcode given took us miles away. The same for the people staying in the neighbouring lodge...who said they had to phone the owners for help. Once we eventually arrived, we then used the NR6 code for the Morrison’s down the road...and always got back to the right area......and if you don’t know the Norfolk roads and lanes, this is quite important.

    Away from the road so you don't see or hear cars going past. Occasionally see an aeroplane come in to land which we loved. A few helicopter s going back & forth to the oil rigs. Other than that it is very very quiet. Owners are very pleasant, they called to see if everything was ok. Everything was nice & clean. It has everything you need except for a small clothes airer. You can wash clothes & hang them out but no airer to put them on... All in all a very nice holiday home.

    Picture is a little deceiving as no flowers in front which would set it off when sitting in the garden. Warm if like us you wish autumn breaks, owners are close at hand if any queries about anything , so very helpful. There is Norwich airport close by so planes are regular as cottage is under the flight path ,but ,moments of noise is all. wildlife is prevalent around the grounds. We have had 4 weeks here in 2019 and will return in 2020. We visit friends and so many places of interest, West Runton Beach is a place to visit ,very interesting history and well kept and organized beach, ideal for dogs to have complete freedom too.

    Its so safe with the private drive and electric gates. We love the walks and the Morrisons is a nice walk as only half a mile. Our dog just lays on his bed on the patio until midnight. We enjoy watching the aircraft and helicopters coming in for landing. Its a spacious lodge and has all you need to rest and recuperate from busy work loads. There are many things to do and some nice pubs too. We just like the rest and the calm quiet atmosphere. There is a cottage next door and so see the odd car come in but we stayed there before and they are both nice and owned by gary and he's very friendly. They leave you alone so you can enjoy your own break how you wish too. They live next door but its secluded so not at all intrusive. We are back in November this year 2019 and we will book for 2020 as well!

    It is in a secluded gated piece of land with owners next door and ne other lodge on site. The gardens are securely gated and fenced so if taking a dog with you you are secure in the knowledge unless a really small dog it cannot get out.The grounds around are smashing with a huge pond with plenty of fish,ducks and the varied wildlife around is wonderful to observe.One draw back for some would be an airport close by which means a fairly busy fly past by helicopters and planes , but, the only noise is momentary and interesting, night time noise is limited from the airport but can start around 6.30am. We had a lovely week and the weather was gorgeous again, our second time here this year, two more weeks to look forward to.
