  • "Very nice cottage, lovely back garden with the hot tub, overlooking fields."

    Good location as not far to visit places.

  • "Had a brilliant week at Lark Rise."

    Lovely house which is well equipped with everything we needed. Good location for a very enjoyable holiday..would highly recommend for a break in Norfolk.

  • "A extremely enjoyable weeks break, lovely place and everything you could think of, cannot praise the place enough."

    We will certainly be booking again. Just one thing to mention is lighting around the hot tub, because of the time of year of our visit, it was dark early in the evenings, and although there is lighting near the hot tub there were no indications as to where to switch it on, and I’m sure the fairy lights would have been lovely to have had on too. Just a really lovely peaceful get away.

  • "Had a lovely holiday, great location 5mins to Wroxham and about 30 - 40 mins to the coast."

    The house is comfortable and as described, the hot tub was lovely at the end of the garden backing on to open fields, very relaxing after a day sightseeing.

  • "The cottage was in superb condition and it was a lovely touch that there was a bottle of wine and a carrot cake for us on arrival."

    The outdoor area with the hot tub was beautiful, quiet and very private and it was so central to anywhere we wanted to go. It was a shame the pub around the corner was only open at the weekend but no control over that during these times. I would highly recommend Lark Rise and would definitely come back.

  • "Kids enjoyed themselves."

    Loved the hot tub. The sofa was extremely comfortable. Great base for exploring North Norfolk and beyond! Would highly recommend!

  • "The house and garden were lovely."

    The only issues we had were that the kitchen tap needed to be tightened, the shower in the en-suite overflowed, and the hot tub could have been hotter. Only small things which did not spoil our holiday.

  • "Found Lark Rise very clean and comfortable."

    The bottle of wine, cake and tea making supplies on arrival was a very nice touch and something we have not had before in a Sykes cottage. The garden is beautifully kept and was a nice place to sit in the evening. Only thing to be aware of is that the hedge at the front restricts your view when existing the driveway onto what can be a busy road at times but its just a matter of being careful.

  • "The property was great and in a lovely quiet location and was a good base to get to many places in the area."

    We have booked with Sykes many times before and will go on booking with them too. I think the only thing lacking for us was the instructions for appliances. The heating system was different to what we were used to and could not find any instructions at all for it so we were cold on a number of evenings/nights. Also the microwave was different to what we were used to (there was no turntable) and therefore we were unable to use it. The hotter temperature was not as warm as we would have liked it but the settings were locked down. The shower in the ensuite overflowed out of the shower tray and therefore we were not able to use that shower either. None of these things spoiled the holiday but they could have enhanced it.

    We are glad you enjoyed your holiday at Lark Rise but are sorry to hear you had some difficulties whilst there. We are very grateful for any feedback both positive and negative and I have taken it on board: There are full instructions for all appliances in the Lark Rise Welcome Pack, however we have printed out the microwave instructions and left them in the kitchen. Additionally we have asked our handyman to look into your other comments and he has now confirmed that everything is in perfect working order. We would love to welcome you back to Lark Rise on your next visit to Norfolk. Property Owner

  • "The property was immaculately kept and extremely comfortable."

    Perhaps a few more utensils in the kitchen would be welcome (sharp knives specifically) but incredibly well equipped other than that. Lovely touches with the soft, motion activated lighting at night made the stay even more enjoyable. The garden is spectacular and we were fortunate to get good weather which meant we could enjoy sitting out and using the hot tub. Will be looking to book again and highly recommend to others. We were just one couple, but there is certainly enough room for larger families or mixed groups to enjoy a relaxing trip.

  • "From the easy to navigate Sykes website, the friendliness and helpfulness of the Customer Service Dept when I spoke to them, accuracy of all details of Larkrise and indeed the property itself, I will have no hesitation in recommending the both."

    The property is lovely - and unlike many other holiday properties there is absolutely no signage of "do this & don't do that" - which made us feel very welcome in your Clients property. The only thing that was missing was a Guest Book ( always nice to leave your personal notes, not only to future Guests but also to the property owners ). Please pass on our sincere thanks to the owners of Larkrise for such a lovely holiday home.
