  • "Was a lovely cottage in a beautiful area."

    The decor was lovely. Garden very nice with lovely patio area. Only one issue - the heating only came on 2 hrs in the morning and 2 in the early evening so after 6pm it was cold. ( we stayed April so although it was sunny was very cold) The water also ran cold in the shower in the morning for the 4th person ! I contacted the owner who said did I understand that it was an old Victorian cottage with a small water tank ? I did understand but it is advertised as sleeping 7 who may all want a shower ! However she did contact her husband who contacted us and was very helpful and more understanding! He agreed to increase the heating by an hour which rectified the hot water problem but not the heating! Other than that I couldn’t find fault and I would stay here again and would recommend it.

  • "This is a very nice cottage, decorated and equipped to a high standard."

    Spacious for the two of us and we had a lovely stay. The conservatory in particular was a real boon in the sunny March weather. I would suggest that more cutlery may be needed if larger numbers of guests were staying All in all a lovely place to stay, just be aware the stairs are very steep indeed,

  • "This was our second visit to Rose Cottage and we will definitely return again."

    It’s in a great location, close to many lovely beaches, great pubs and lots of fabulous walks. The house is beautifully decorated, with everything you need, a real home from home. My only very minor issue is the hot water. It is set for 2 hours a day, once in the morning and once early evening. With seven people staying in the property there was only enough water for one bath and one shower at a time and then the water has to be boosted for another two hours. A real pain when it’s wet, windy and cold. Aside from that it’s a great house in a very special part of the country ❤️

  • "This is an excellent cottage, well equipped and warm with a nice log burner."

    There is parking for 2 cars and the garden is safe for dogs. As it has 4 bedrooms and downstairs wc as well as upstairs bathroom there is plenty of room for 6 or 7 people and 2 dogs. The owner was quick to respond to any queries too. Would highly recommend.

  • "Our second time at this cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it again."

    If you could just pick it up and move it towards Cromer, (we’re hoping to go there in 2022!). Thank you

  • "The cottage and it’s decor are both fabulous except for the living room rug which was incredibly faded and threadbare which gave it a grubby appearance."

    This should however have been replaced by now as a new one had been ordered while we were there. The kitchen could do with more crockery and a potato masher and also the bench at the dining table is very rickety. Not a problem for our family of three but you’d need to be careful if for example there were seven adults in your party. The garden is truly enclosed and our tiny dogs were perfectly safe out there. A wonderful cottage in a very beautiful area of Norfolk. Final thought, make sure you request your security deposit back on your return. You’re told the owner will contact you but in our case this didn’t happen and when I reminded her she admitted she’d overlooked it. She was then quick to refund but just a reminder to keep this in mind. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage.

    Perhaps more crockery, but what was provided was beautiful . Dishwasher tiny and plates didn't fit. Busy road and parking tight space for 2 cars. Really enjoyed our stay, fabulous location and very tastefully decorated.

  • "Cottage review Rose cottage is a well equipped place to stay with modern appliances and comforts."

    The pots and pans, crockery and cutlery were all sufficient for a 4 night stay for two, maybe four people. The fireplace is lovely and keeps the room warm on cold December nights. An initial load of firewood was provided and that was very helpful. The bedroom we used was quiet and comfortable, albeit quite chilly. The bathroom is well equipped and convenient to use, but we found the hot water boost a necessity for two people showering back to back. We didn’t get to use the cozy garden or the sun room, as it was too cold in the winter, but in the summer it would add an incredible dimension to the stay. Some things about the stay surprised us. The BBQ is only available in the summer months, which is only revealed after the booking is done. We’re used to BBQing in the winter in Canada and it was mildly disappointing to not have that option. Car parking was as advertised but anything larger than a small car will not easily fit (we had a Mercedes A-Class rental and it was a tight squeeze). Lastly, if you intend to use the dishwasher or the washing machine, bring your own tablets, as the property was only provided with one of each for the duration of the stay Outside of that - great place to stay to explore best parts of Norfolk
