  • "Beautiful cottage, we had a lovely time."

    The cottage is spacious, well equipped and full of character. The hot tub and bath were very relaxing. There are lots of lovely places to visit in the area. We had a lovely meal at The Fox and Goose pub a 5 min drive away and The Boarding House about 20 min drive too.

  • "We stayed for a long weekend this November which wasn't long enough, we didn't want to leave."

    The cottage is absolutely beautiful and well equipped. The Garden and surrounding areas are also amazing. I particularly loved all of the little vintage touches around the cottage in particular the kitchen. The cottage was also dressed for the season with lots of little Autumnal decorations. Absolutely stunning!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    This a beautiful property, really well equipped with a lovely large secure garden. We loved the hot tub and the area was very peaceful but with enough to do close by. Would highly recommend.

  • "We stayed at this beautiful cottage in August 2023, and found it to be everything the pictures promised and more We would like to thank the owner for her great communication and prompt responses to our questions, the provision of all the little touches and supplies that make such a stay memorable were spot on."

    . The use of the always on Aga was a delight and we had lovely freshly ironed clothes from Ms Aga each day My wife loved walking the surrounding fields nearby, the view out the breakfast room across the paddocks was a joy to us The local town of Harleston is close by and is charming and the local coop, medical centre, barbers and cafes / teashop were all useful during our stay..

    In our opinion this cottage is perfect and it is in a perfect location. Each time we have stayed here we have not wanted to leave, the cottage is so beautiful. Each time we have stayed Sally has left us the most wonderful welcome pack of local produce and lovely flowers. Thank you Sally. We cannot wait to return. Kind regards Alan & Diane

  • "Fabulous property, couldn't ask for any more."

    ..location great, quiet, peaceful very relaxing. Cottage so well equipped with everything you could need or wish for...we tackled some cooking on the AGA which was great fun...yes if you have mobility issues the stairs are a bit of a challenge and yes in the middle of the night on a toilet visit you may well bump your head on a low door but it's a 16th Century thatched cottage and a fantastic piece of history. We will definitely book again....Sally the owner was available for assistance and very helpful.

  • "The cottage was spotless, very well maintained and comfortable."

    A lovely cosy place to relax and enjoy a break. Great location too! The owner was on the ball with communications too. The listing should be clearer about the staircase though. I had an older giant breed dog who just could not physically do the steep stairs. I imagine that mobility challenged folk would also struggle.

  • "A lovely cottage full of character."

    Decorated to high standard. Tastefully furnished. Fully equipped for 4 people. The cottage is a historic property but equipped with all modern facilities. A fair sized enclosed garden for dogs. Good quiet location within easy reach to walks and tourist attractions in the area. The hot tub is maintained at right temperature at all times. I highly recommend this property.

  • "We all enjoyed our week at Waveney cottage despite the weather not being very good."

    The cottage is furnished to a high standard and very comfortable and it is in a very peaceful location. However, we were a little confused by the Aga as the original description stated an Aga, electric oven and hob so we thought we had an alternative and booked the property on that basis which was a bit misleading. However, we conquered the Aga. We would have appreciated a warning about the tricky staircase and low beam. It is not safe or suitable for elderly people, our age group was 75-85 with varying mobility problems. In other words we would not have booked the cottage on that basis. I think that a mention about this should be added In the description as it is a very important point. Also, the smaller bedroom ensuite toilet did not function properly. We were aware of the age of property and that it was listed and operated on LPG energy and in fact were very impressed by the spaciousness. The welcome package was very generous and the owner had gone to great lengths to make us comfortable, but had we known the disadvantages for our age group we would not have committed to it.

  • "We had a wonderful Christmas at Waveney Cottage, 7 nights from 22/12/2022."

    This cottage is furnished to the very highest of standards and is beautifully decorated, and also had two lovely Christmas Trees for our holiday. Everything in this cottage was spotlessly clean, every item you require (and more) is supplied. Bedding & towels are of the very highest quality. Thank you Sally for the most overwhelming welcome pack. We are already looking to return soon. Kind regards Alan & Diane Cheshire.
