  • "Had a lovely and relaxing stay at Lark rise."

    Beautiful home, had everything you needed for a weeks stay. Comfortable beds and hot tub was cleaned on day of arrival and was lovely and warm throughout our stay. Nice having the fire as well! Our dog loved the garden and it was secure so we did not have to worry about her escaping! We loved Roy’s Dept store and food court in Wroxham, enjoyed using our canoe and paddle board at the Broads in Wroxham as well. Highly recommend The Stag ( although nut roast was a disappointment) the rest of the food was lovely. We ate in there twice so must be good! Only gripe was that heating didn’t seem to stay on for long , so we snuggled in our beds for longer anyway! Would definitely stay at Lark rise again, kids enjoyed playing the electronic Monopoly game as well. Where did you get your kitchen units from? Lovely big drawers and hob was nice to use ( once we figured it out

  • "Overall a very nice property and very well equipped."

    Just a couple of small observations. Having elderly parents, a couple of hand rails fitted in the showers are needed. Also one frying pan for 6 people is insufficient so at least one more is needed. Weak wi-fi signal at the bottom of the garden near the hot tub and BBQ, even though there is a booster. But a very enjoyable stay overall helped by fantastic weather.

  • "Thank you for such a comfortable stay at Lark Rise."

    The house was really a home from home with all bases covered. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and the comfy beds. Would definitely recommend. The local refurbished pub, The Stag was really a treat. Very friendly and lovely food

  • "On arrival the property was extremely clean and facilities of very good quality."

    Just a couple of niggles: so many locks and padlocks in the property on various pieces of furniture eg: there were 3 wardrobes in bedroom but 2 of them had locks on them and this continued throughout the property; making breakfast on the last morning and for some reason the toaster tripped the electric so we were unable to have a hot breakfast or hot drink. We couldn’t find the fuse board because it was probably in one of the locked cupboards and there was not an emergency number that we could find (I left a note for the owner before we left). Also the hot tub maintenance man arrived whilst we were still at the property on the last morning- luckily we weren’t in there at the time. But as we said the property was really lovely and the garden was very well kept and the hot tub was lovely. Parking excellent on the property. We noticed that there is a planning application in progress to extend the property and if it is carried out to the same high specifications that can only be an excellent improvement. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can recommend this property without hesitation.

    Thanks for a great stay even at the back end of February we had several users of the hot tub even at 9pm in the dark.

  • "We all had a fabulous time at Lark Rise."

    From the youngest...5 months, to the oldest...65 years, we enjoyed every minute. There was everything we could possibly need in the house and outside the hot tub was sublime! The location was ideal and we enjoyed a lovely day out at Wroxham Barns. All in all we had an unforgettable stay at Lark Rise!

  • "The property was exactly as advertised."

    A little disappointed at the cleanliness. We had to hoover up crumbs under the table using a very full Dyson hoover. The toilets could have been cleaner but overall Lark Rise was outstanding. A very polite gardener arrived during our stay and made a fantastic job of the garden. The property was very quiet and the hot tub was very clean and enjoyable. Would definitely book this property again, hopefully in the next 6 months, thank you.

  • "The overall comfort of Lark Rise was excellent and very high spec."

    The only fault was a lot of dust and dead insects on a some of the window sills. The cushions for the outdoor seating had been left out and were soaking wet as it had rained hard and they took nearly 2 days to dry which was inconvenient as the weather was sunny for rest of our stay. We really recommend The Brick Kilns pub for good food & dog friendly too.

  • "Slight Hiccup to the start I feel I have to mention (but not a reflection on the house or our stay by any means): on arrival fluff from socks all over the carpets, crumbs under the kitchen table, holes in the flatsheets of the bedding and upon unpacking in the bedroom stubbed toes on a bed slat that was just sticking out from the bed on the floor and exposing its nails."

    Bent down to investigate only to be met with a pair of knickers and a large handkerchief! All of which were easily resolved on our part but equally could have been avoided, noticed and remedied with thorough cleaning/vacuuming on change over by chosen domestic cleaning company. Reported the bed slat issue for the only comment to be 'do you still have the bed slat'! With that out of the way, I have nothing but praise for the house and it's location. Comfy beds, quiet nights, an amazing hot tub and all round homely feel. Such a good base to explore all nearby from the door step: We managed Bewilderwood/Horning/Sea Palling/Hemsby/Buoyancy Bikes in Wroxham and local walks to include the amazing Prima Rosa tea rooms just up the road. A couple of suggestions: to invest in oven gloves (we couldn't find any if they were there) and a wasp deterrent of some sort near the hot tub as the wasps where very keen on the bush behind it. We would definitely stay again.

  • "Lovely holiday home with everything you need for an enjoyable UK break."

    Worked great for us as it’s within 40 mins of all the places we like to visit in Norfolk. 5 mins from Wroxham where you can hire a day boat! If you’re looking for a place with a pub within walking distance, this might not work for you as The Bell is only open on a weekend & doesn’t serve food. However The Fur & Feather is less than a 5 mins drive and well worth it.

  • "We have just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks at Lark Rise."

    The house was spotlessly clean and the welcome Prosecco and fruit cake were a lovely welcome. The facilities in the house were great and everything had been thought of to make our stay comfortable from a very well equipped kitchen to the games and books that were provided (the fans were also a welcome addition in each room with the great weather we had). The decoration was high quality throughout and we had some great days relaxing in the garden on the comfortable lounge chairs and in the hot tub. The location was also great with easy access to Norwich and the Broads.

  • "Easy access to all local places of interest and pubs and restaurants only a short car ride away."

    The property was clean, linen and towels good quality and the garden with hot tub a real bonus. The welcome pack was a nice touch. There was a down stairs bedroom which was great but nowhere to put clothes as the only cupboard is blocked by the bed and no shower/bathroom downstairs which was a bit odd. Not really suitable for elderly visitors. The kitchen was well equipped with pans and cooking dishes but not enough basic equipment like egg cups. Too many locked cupboards throughout as only 1 wardrobe open in main bedroom.

    Well equipped; the owners have thought of everything. Very comfortable accommodation. Situated in a lovely quiet area but centrally located to visit many beautiful places. This is the first property we have stayed in which is genuinely dog friendly with a very secure garden. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. A week just wasn't long enough. We will definitely be returning!!!!

    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.

  • "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.

    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.
