  • "We had a lovely week at Highfields, it had everything we needed."

    Heather and Rob were very good hosts meeting us on our arrival and explaining things to us and then leaving us to ourselves, but they were on hand if we needed anything. The area was central to get to many places . Thank you for the welcoming tea coffee milk and biscuits they were much appreciated.

  • "We had an excellent time and overall stay at Highfields ."

    Although we didn’t do any cooking whilst we were there and chose to eat out it was obviously well equipped for those who wanted to self cater. A very well presented and clean apartment it was perfect for us. This part of Norfolk is has nice beaches and scenery and is great for walking . The weather was good for the majority of the week so all good.

  • "The property is a lovely haven and a nice place to relax and unwind whilst been in a good location to visit the areas attractions."

    I like to leave the properties I visit clean and tidy and whilst the owner provided a vacuum cleaner for use the floors were laminate throughout and tiled in the kitchen I think a soft brush would be useful to use (there was a dustpan and brush) not really suitable for doing a large area, and some kind of o mop so you could clean the kitchen floor. I also found the shower a little confusing to use, there are instructions in the booklet in the accommodation for the microwave it would be good if there were some for the shower, also a warning that the hot water gets very hot and if you are not careful you could scold yourself. These are not complaints of any nature just observations on my part.

    For some reason we struggled to get access to Wifi but Bob was on the case and put a booster in the kitchen for us, job done! Being just outside Cromer suited us and we used the bus to go into the town. Everything you need in the property is provided, and Heather and Bob perfect hosts. Hopefully we will go back to beautiful Norfolk and we would not think twice about staying at Highfield again.

    Even the patio was swept every morning to contend with leaf brought down by the quite fierce wind. All information was clearly set out in accordance with present guidelines.

This is our second visit and we would happily go again.

    Kitchen adequate but contained a lot of crockery, glasses etc which we found were not required. Needed to make room for non perishables. small blemishes with décor under window sill in lounge - plaster off. Light switches in Kitchen & Lounge not easy to find when arriving after dark would have thought they would be near to the entry door? All in all a good place to stay and ideally situated for visiting attractions in the area. The village pub was well worth visiting - New Inn - excellent English & Chinese food.

A couple of miles away is the village of Felbrigg which is home to the Felbrigg Estate, owned by the National Trust and which extends over 1760 acres including the Great Wood which surrounds the magnificent Felbrigg Hall. The popular seaside resort of Cromer is known for its wonderful clifftop promenade, with attractive, colourful gardens and seating areas ideally placed for enjoying the stunning panoramic views over the sea. Cromer has a lovely, sandy Blue Flag beach where both children and adults can spend hours building sand castles, swimming, sunbathing or investigating the tidal pools in search of interesting sea creatures, which include young Cromer crabs. Cromer is proud of its beautiful Victorian pier, offering theatre shows, a museum and an RNLI lifeboat station, which is open to visitors and where you can learn about Cromer’s long lifeboat history.
