  • "Excellent house with great amenities, most well equipped house we have stayed in."

    Plenty of bathrooms/ toilets. Great to have a dining room where 12 of us can sit around a table comfortably. If the weather had been better we would have made use of the outdoor space & seating. Hot tub was lovely but towards the end of the week it went green, telephone advice was given but I feel it should have been maintained throughout our stay. Everywhere else we have stayed the hot tub is checked daily. A lovely house for a family gathering only downside you have to drive from the house to go anywhere, no footpaths.

  • "High house is a perfect house for a large family or group of friends."

    The weather in Norfolk isn't always the best but the house caters for the odd day at home. The games room is amazing. There were builders on site who shared the drive, they were very polite and considerate and didn't cause any problems whatsoever . We had a leaky shower , the owner organised a plumber to come the same day, all fixed while we were out. Overall a great house. Oh and room for 5 cars to park.

    Hello, thank you for your lovely feedback. We hope to see you very soon again. Property Owner

  • "Several months after booking this property we were advised that there was building work in the woods behind the house."

    Sykes assured us that this would not impact negatively on our stay. In actual fact the building is being constructed adjoining the house which did impact our enjoyment of the location quite considerably. Builders started work with their hammer/nail guns at 7.20 am. Vans were constantly in and out throughout the day. Voices could be heard from within High House. Builders were directly outside some of bathroom and bedroom windows. Parking for guests is limited to three cars. Some bedrooms only have a roof light which is not as advertised. The cooker was very dirty and the overhead lights for the cooker which is located in a dark recess were not working. I was told just before our holiday was due to commence that there was CCTV camera in the drive. This camera is in fact positioned in a tree directly pointing at the hot tub which I feel is quite an invasion of privacy. While the house is very nice I would not recommend anyone to book a holiday while this building work is ongoing. I have been unable to get any response from Sykes on these issues despite contacting them three times so I would not recommend Sykes either.

    Dear Sonia, thank you for your feedback. We do apologise that you feel your enjoyment of your stay was impacted by the restoration work at the rear of the house. We are surprised to hear such criticism as a phone call to us could have resolved some issues immediately. In addition, please note: the large and wide driveway can comfortably fit at least five cars; one of the top floor bedrooms has a velux window; the cooker is cleaned after very stay and is professionally cleaned every 3 months; the overhead lights were fixed immediately; the camera view is fixed on the driveway only; and the work finishes mid June.

    Just incredible! Exactly what we wanted/needed and more! Immaculate house, stunning interior, lots of space, incredible amount of kitchen equipment, clean and tidy and the perfect setting for a long weekend. All towels and bedding provided. Great location, no neighbours and close to the coast! Would highly recommend and hope to return one day.

  • "This holiday cottage has been our best stay yet, as a group we have been going away in the half term week for 8 years."

    The location was amazing not far from cromer beach and other places for the kids. Facilities and Space where excellent. Lots of space in all rooms. Huge garden area. The games room and hot tub was an added bonus. Along with the outdoor chairs and large fire pit which was ace for bonfire night and marshmellows. We have a made some memories that ourselves and kiddies will remember for a lifetime. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. (I could go on... we will definately recommend).

    Hi, we are so pleased that you all had such a great time - and especially the children too. We hope you will soon be making further memories at High House! Property Owner

    So comfortable and so clean, and it came with everything you needed to cook for yourself. We loved the dishwasher, as it made it super easy to clean up after ourselves without too much hassle. The hot tub was a big hit with the girls, it was much needed on one of the hottest weekends of the year! The interior decor is beautiful and the front/back outside areas are gorgeous. The house is also only a 10 minute drive away from Cromer beach! I honestly couldn’t recommend it enough! Thank you for a lovely weekend.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We have an Instagram account where you might like to post some photos Our latest news is that we now have a new tumble dryer and also a second Smart TV. Property Owner

    Everything we needed in the house cooking equipment, crockery cutlery and tools. Toy and games room a massive hit and a chill out in the hot tub. The house was so popular it is definitely a return. Ideally placed for country and beach walks with the dogs and children and a sneaky escape to the Vernon and Gunton for a beer. 11 out of 10

    Terrific house. Perfect set-up for our families and dogs. Xmas tree was a lovely touch and surprise. House laid out really well, especially for the hot tub and close access to laundry room/towels/wc etc. Fun having the games room. Easy to use thermostat/wifi/SkyTv. Helpful advice from owners. Great setting, short drive to amenities/pubs/Cromer. Can't fault it. Sad to be home.

  • "Positives - Overall, beautiful house and location/setting."

    Lots of space for a large family get-togethers. Ample supplies of crockery, cutlery and cooking implements/ovenware. Crisp clean and comfortable bedding. Clean toilets and shower facilities. Negatives - Virtually insecure door in the sunroom that leads to the jacuzzi, locks at top and bottom are coming away from the wood. Dart board disintegrating, with only two complete darts. Lots of holes, not only on the wall around the dart board, but also on the adjacent door. Bare cloth on the pool table. Toilet roll holder in top floor ensuite bathroom, fell off the wall. Foul sewage smell from the first floor main bedrooms ensuite; had to keep the windows open at all times and the door to the bedroom shut. The bedding was clean and maybe a hoover was ran round the house by the cleaners prior to arrival, but the wooden and tiled floors were filthy. One person wore white socks around the house on the first day, which were black by the evening. We also needed to wipe down the dining room table and all the placemats before use.
