  • "The apartment felt very homely and had all the kitchen equipment needed to prepare your own food and we found the utensils/crockery in very good condition."

    The refrigerator interior was smaller than expected but we adapted to the space available and so no problem for the rest of our stay. The bedroom was surprisingly spacious, bed very comfortable and the living room was also a good size with comfy seating. To sum up, we enjoyed our time in the lovely, clean, comfortable apartment.

  • "The property was accurately described in the text put out by Sykes."

    We found it clean, comfortable, well-appointed, and warm (October). The kitchen was well-equipped. The shower was a walk-in cabinet and reliable. The wi-fi was adequate and did not cut-out. The bed was comfortable, with the linen clean and wholesome. There was ample, safe parking. The comment in the text regarding the stairs outside, and various steps within, the apartment, was accurate. Some persons could find them restricting. The location is quite convenient for the North Norfolk Coast. Docking, 2km away, has a Spar shop for essentials, and a good chip-shop operating on some evenings.

    Thanks for your overview & comments very much appreciated Peter Property Owner
