  • "I have marked comfort down for a specific reason."

    Assuming you don't have a back problem then both the mattress and sofa are very comfortable. However, if like me, you do suffer from back issues then you will find there is insufficient support in either of them. Given that these are single storey units and advertise disability provision then the target market is likely to be elderly with ageing issues.. The very segment of the population that needs firmer support. This is meant to be constructive criticism for the owners who otherwise might find that repeat business is not as high as they anticipated.

    The cottage was perfect, a nice size with all the household implements provided. The play area was used on a regular basis and is located well and secure. All in all a perfect place to Holliday.

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Beechwood cottage."

    It was a lot more spacious than we expected which was super. It was immaculately clean, warm and had everything we needed for the week. The play area for the children was great and hearing the children playing with friends from the neighbouring cottages was so lovely. Wood Norton is a very quiet and beautiful village. Each day it was often a 30 minute to the beaches and areas we wanted to visit which was fine. We were so blessed with the weather and Norfolk truly is incredible to explore.

  • "Beautiful location."

    Peace & quiet yet everything you need nearby. Ideal location to explore Norfolk and relax in the comfort of a home-from-home. This was our second stay in Beechwood and third stay in total (previously stayed in Sycamore) and already booked again for August!. Jane, the owner, is lovely. You will not be disappointed!

  • "We had a great stay in the cottage."

    It was a last minute booking for us and we were pleasantly surprised by the spacious cottage. It is a very safe place for families, gated at the end of the village with its own playground. The interiors were a bit tired, mainly the bathrooms, but as a last minute find that was okay - and we'd go again, so not a deal breaker.

    Very relaxing, a treat for my sisters 70th birthday. The cottage had everything you could want, although it was out in the country, it was not far from many beautiful places. The only downside was due to the Covid, everywhere was busy as people had stayed in the UK for their holidays. Car parking was at a premium.

    No steps to contend with and plenty of outside lighting if required. We stayed in November so were grateful for the outside lights, equally we were able to enjoy some wildlife...saw an owl and a hare what a treat. The barn was comfortable with plenty of storage, heating and hot water. Would stay again.

    It was warm and and had everything to make a welcome brew with a cake to go with it. I had not expected the cottage to be so spacious. We booked the cottage to go to the Thursford extravaganza which came up to it’s marvellous best again. I really regret not booking it for longer. It is a most relaxing place. It is a place that lends itself for a friends or family gett together with the courtyard in the centre of the cottages.

  • "Overall the cottage was good a few small things that wouldn't take much would have made it perfect the twin bedroom with only one bedside table made it difficult for the elderly residents sleeping there without a bedside cabinet for a light and a drink whilst the overall cleanliness was good the patio widows were very dirty the cooker is old and takes ages for the oven to get hot and barely reaches temperature the hobs are also slow to react ."

    The bedside lamps in the main room have passed their best and give out poor light as they are small although do the job I guess but a bigger lamp would have been nice.

  • "A note for Beechwood Cottage, Wood Norton is that a better shower head would be good as the one provided was very weak."

    Also the dishwasher needed more salt, rinse aid and also leaked onto the floor. The bedroom next to the main bedroom could do with a bedside cabinet instead of a chair with a bedside light next to it. Touch lamps in all bedrooms would be helpful. Also bigger bath towels as you couldn't call them bath towels which were provided. Apart from the above we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Very welcoming hosts and very receptive to sorting out any problems."

    Beechwood is larger than the pictures would have you think, as it goes back a long way. We were a family of 6 plus a baby and there was ample room. The kitchen/lounge layout was great, providing a good community feel during pre and post meal times, the watching TV. The master bedroom was very large, the second bedroom was large and the third was typical double size. It is a warm cottage due to its recent building standards. Access to the site and cottage was easy, although being in Norfolk, it was 10 plus miles to anywhere of interest. We would recommend the Sculthorpe Community Nature Reserve and their Hawk and Owl Trust. Very easy access for wheelchairs etc and long flat walks with hides to watch the wild life. Also the faltish walk out on the Blakeney Nature reserve. Take the Back Lane turning by the Blakeney Church to go to the harbour side. We had a long walk and a good lunch at the harbour side hotel. Can't remember it's name.

White House Farm Cottages

These attractive brick and pantile cottages are nestled in a gravelled courtyard of five properties and are situated in a tranquil setting in the village of Wood Norton amidst the Norfolk countryside. Sympathetically converted from former farm buildings, these single-storey cottages are ideally suited for those wishing to explore the glorious North Norfolk coastline and the picturesque, historic nearby market towns of Fakenham and Holt. Each of these cottages offer bright, spacious accommodation, traditionally furnished with modern facilities. Well-equipped and welcoming, they share a large sheltered courtyard and have the benefit of their own private patio where you can relax and unwind. For the younger members of the family, the cottages have a splendid communal play area with swings, slide and a seesaw, as well as a table tennis room. The popular Georgian market town of Holt has excellent amenities with a wide choice of interesting independent shops, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants. Be sure to take a trip on the steam train from here which runs to the traditional seaside town of Sheringham, or take a short drive to the coast, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a haven for birdwatchers and walkers. With miles of sandy beaches and majestic dunes, these cottages are ideally placed for taking boat trips to see the seals or simply visiting the RSPB reserves and coastal paths. Well worth a visit is the historic city of Norwich, with its magnificent cathedral towering above the surrounding medieval streets hosting museums, galleries and excellent shopping facilities.
