  • "It is a lovely wam and well provisioined holiday cottage."

    The owner was incredily helpful and communication excellent. We hope to be back in the new year sometime. Thankyou

  • "It's such a wonderful place."

    Really quiet and tucked away in the countryside (was easy to find with the directions the owner gave) yet close enough to access everything you want whether this was the city of Norwich 8 miles away, the north coast (Cromer) 15 miles away or east coast (Great Yarmouth) 25 miles. The house is really well presented, clean and tidy and had all the amenities and more that you would require for the holiday, really all you have to do is turn up. The oven, hob, dishwasher and washing machine are easy enough to use. We are a family of 5 so for the sleeping arrangements one of us had to use the Z-bed which was no problems as this was comfy and both me and my son had a sleep on it. For the outside of the property there is your own section of garden to hang the clothes, you are able to wander around the farm looking in the stables or the pond. The owner is really nice and was there on a morning as she has her office on-site and tends the grounds. Only problem we had was we had to come home, but we would love to go back in the future.

    As always, it was extremely clean, well equipped/maintained and comfortable. Lyn and David provided a very warm welcome, and were both very helpful throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and the communication prior to and also during our stay was excellent. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

  • "The location is ideal, near to the Broads, Norwich and the Coast."

    We were fortunate to have excellent weather which always helps. The closest local pub was closed due to new owners taking over, but it will be open by now We ate at the Fox, and at the excellent Honingham Buck. Traffic free bike rides on the Weaver’s way, a visit to Sandringham, RSPB reserve at Strupshaw Fen, the nature reserve at Hickling Broad, fish and chips at Cromer and the fabulous Old Vicarage gardens, and hire of a day boat, all excellent visits. A big thanks to Lin, the owner of the cottage, always available for help and advice.

  • "Before arrival I was telephoned, received a short introduction and was offered more information if I tendered my email address to facilitate the sending of cottage and locality information which was most kind and helpful."

    On arrival after a long journey, and with only being able to give a vague indication of arrival time we were greeted personally and shown around.....Not the usual "Find a key in a box and here is the security code"! We were shown around the cottage, its facilities and equipment, some basic foodstuffs [milk, butter, sausages, bacon, cereals, bread, jams] which were supplied to us lest we arrive outside of shop opening times, and two bottles of wine! Again we were told the location of local restaurants, pubs, and shops. This personal touch is so rare nowadays and most welcome. The cottage was immaculate, clean and everything worked....more rare than one would imagine! On departure day we again received the owner's cheery smile without any pressure as to time of departure. I was just turning the dishwasher on and hoovering but I was told that was not necessary! I offer holiday accommodation myself so I know the importance of per arrival information and meeting and greeting so I was cheered that some others shared my own attention to detail! I would have no hesitation in returning for another visit, and in recommending this cottage to friends.

  • "This is an extremely comfortable holiday cottage."

    It is spacious and very well equipped and in an incredibly quiet area - no road noise at all, just silence when you wake. It's within easy reach of several National Trust properties and woodland gardens, and also the Broads and coast. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking essentials and much, much more - nothing like some properties we've stayed in where there is not even salt! There was a very generous welcome pack. The only point to mention is that there is not really a garden as such, just a table and chairs outside the door, perhaps 'shared field' is more accurate. However this would be no problem to adults, just maybe if you have small children. All in all, an excellent experience.

Used the Park and Ride which runs from the Airport to get into Norwich for sightseeing/shopping - it is really good value, free to park at the airport and the buses run every ten minutes .

About the location


Norwich 7 miles; Coltishall 4 miles; Wroxham 7 miles.

The village of Hainford is at the very heart of North Norfolk and is central to some of the most spectacular scenery that Norfolk can offer. It is within easy reach of Norwich International Airport, which is only 3 miles from the village and within 7 miles of the historic Roman city of Norwich, which has first class shopping facilities. There is a lovely thatched pub and restaurant in Hainford which is open for lunches and evening meals, whilst just 3 miles away is the pretty Broadland village of Coltishall which is known locally as the ‘Gateway to the Broads’ and has a well known pub/restaurant. The banks of the River Bure are the picturesque setting of Coltishall Staithe, a large grassed area enjoying riverside pubs and restaurants, a village store/Post Office and attractive cottages. In summer, both locals and visitors enjoy relaxing picnics, feeding the ducks and playing ball games, while in winter, the local waterfowl enjoy Coltishall Staithe’s riverside tranquillity. Near to Hainford is the summertime pick-up stop of the Bure Valley Railway, a narrow gauge steam and diesel service running between the market town of Aylsham and Wroxham. The local area offers a wide choice of places to visit from craft barns and beautiful gardens to National Trust properties and Redwings Horse Sanctuary, while river boat trips can also be enjoyed. With Norfolk’s beautiful and varied coastline within easy reach, this is a lovely location for discovering Norfolk.
