  • "We booked this super cottage as we were going to the Thursford Spectacular just a few miles away."

    . Lovely well laid out cottage although I would call it a barn as it is massive !! Set in a group of similar cottages which would be ideal for whole family get togethers. Very comfortable and spacious with large rooms and high ceilings , lots of unreachable cobwebs which add to the ambiance of being in the countryside! Very comfortable beds , we all slept really well and lovely white bed linen and towels, would just add that the bath towels were slightly small but weren’t a problem. What a fabulous kitchen, well equipped with everything you need for a holiday , the plus side is that it is open to the lounge/dining area so not cut off from the conversations going on. Need to bring groceries etc as there is no shop in the area to nip to ..car park area is fine and the key pad entry closed gates add to the security of the properties. We are hoping to return next year as we enjoyed it so much .

    Accessed via narrow country roads. Has a securely gated car park area. A convenient location for the coast and north Norfolk including Thursford.

  • "We loved the cottage - this was our second visit."

    It is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The property is in a rural area amongst a small group of rentals around a courtyard. It is in a perfect location for either peace and quiet or visiting nearby attractions. Langham Glass - Blakeney and North Norfolk Railway are to be recommended. Thank you Jane for making last minute adjustments to our booking.

  • "We have just returned from spending a wonderful week at The Peartree."

    The property is exactly the same in size as the photos show; we have been misled in the past with rooms appearing to be much larger in size in properties than in real life, hence this was important for first impressions. The place was clean, comfortable beds, the main bathroom shower is much better in pressure than the en-suite one, there was enough crockery and cutlery in the drawers and the views were great from the side doors. The play area is a brilliant space for kids, we even took a little picnic to have there! It’s very peaceful, but that depends on who’s occupying the other properties, which are right next door/opposite. Luckily we had quiet neighbours! The actual location is quite remote so you will need a car to go to places. It was ideal for us as we were able to do various trips - beaches, museums, parks - within approximately 20-35 mins from the Peartree. It meant that if the weather was not great, we weren’t far from indoor places. Overall we enjoyed our first stay in Norfolk and definitely found value for money in this rental, would recommend.

    We enjoyed our stay. We did feel that some more information in the form of a guest book would have been useful. Guidance on the arrangements for bins for instance. I also thought the "welcome pack" was rather ungenerous compared with other places we have stayed.

  • "Firstly the good and very good aspects of this property."

    The Location is lovely, we were in Peartree cottage (The largest), this backs onto views across the fields. The inside is very spacious , the living / dining / Kitchen areas are some of the largest we have stayed in, Warm environment, comfortable seats all very good. The bedrooms are also pretty Spacious especially the master. Here are the downsides, to be fair most self catering properties suffer many, or all of the things I make comment on here. Documentation on how things work, especially the TV, the requirements regarding waste and recycling etc - missing, or unable to find. No visitor book, it's always good to read what other guests think. Nothing on the area, things to see, useful numbers etc. Like us I am sure most people do their own research, but it is nice to have the local knowledge. The Kitchen is very workable for two people, Which makes a nice change. The standard of the cooking utensils, saucepans, frypans etc were adequate. Crockery and cutlery were very good. My Wife and I like to prepare our own food, we always have, with the cost of eating out I am sure this is the case for a lot of people, Kitchen ‘equipment’ should be given more focus. Example, a microwave is supplied, but no suitable containers to use in the microwave with a lids. No Kitchen roll, no foil to use in the oven, no saucepan cleaning pads, small things, but important. The impression given is they are unwanted house hold items. It’s a shame. Finally the showers. Good points, they are clean and work. The water flow is pitiful. My review sound like me moaning about everything, not true, we were happy there, BUT, and this is true most of the time with all properties the attention to detail comes up short. Self catering implies doing things for yourself, so the appropriate tools need to be supplied.

  • "We had a lovely stay - beautiful property, excellent location and friendly people to deal with."

    The wildlife right outside was amazing, deers and hares every day! If i had any suggestions, the cottage could use more kitchen equipment - there were no oven gloves or foil, too few mugs and wooden spoons etc. Would have preferred kitchen roll to be provided and a spare loo roll. But that didn't take away from a lovely week. The table tennis was fun too!

  • "We stayed for 7 nights at Pear Trees."

    The two showers were not fit for purpose. Lack of pressure and flow made showering and hair washing a miserable experience. The chairs in the main bedroom and adjacent hallway were dangerously unstable; all the fixings needed tightening. Toiletries were solely two bars of guest soap. No kitchen hand towel, cloth for wiping surfaces or pan scourer were provided. I phoned the contact number to ask if condiments were provided as there was pepper but no salt in a kitchen cupboard,to be told in no uncertain terms that the only supplies were tea, coffee and milk, enough for a drink on arrival. There was no feeling of either interest or welcome. The stay at Pear Trees was an anonymous experience, mitigated by the facts that the barn was spacious and warm.

    Thank you for taking the time to write feedback, we rely on this to maintain the standard of our properties. The showers are electric, if you are not familiar with this type of shower then there is a chance they were misused as we have not previously heard of any issue with the pressure. Thank you for making us aware of the chairs, they're currently getting repaired. This is a self-catering property so we do not provide everything that an individual might want, however, we have taken onboard your comments and will consider providing more for future guests. We apologise that you did not feel welcome as this was certainly not the case and not how we intend anyone to feel in our properties. Once again, thank you for the feedback. Property Owner

  • "We generally had a great time at Peartree cottage, but in order for you to improve the experience, we will make these comments: When there is clearly good water pressure in the bathrooms taps, why have the showers been plumbed into electric pumps."

    It might sound silly, but when showering the pressure was so low, your body actually felt cold where the water wasn’t hitting it. This is partly due to the fact it was cold but mainly due to the fact that the water pressure in the shower is so weak, it was difficult to get wet under it. We were unable to load BBC IPLAYER on the television. Perhaps instruction would solve this problem but why was this service not just there. As a Tesla driver for over 3 years I have seen the improvement of fast charging at both Kings Lyn and Norwich but these are not convenient to Pear Tree. I did make the 50 mile round trip to Norwich but this takes time and inconvenience. At the last cottages we rented in Wales the owners had installed their own charging point (paid by usage). With Pear Tree being one of a number of properties, one charger would not be enough, however it would be much better than attaching to the 13amp supply that I had to do because the Fakenham chargers at Morrisons were out of action. More and more people will be driving electric cars in the future so please ask the owner to add this facility to attract more custom and make guests life easier.

    This is a spacious property and a beautiful barn conversion. In a property of this nature you expect to find the odd spider or two, but it really didn't bother us! The on site owners were friendly and helpful, as well as Jane, the manager,who kept us fully informed at every opportunity. A couple of issues that could be addressed in the future is the mattress on the double bed, which was very soft and a bit lumpy, and a lack of enough hooks in the bedrooms to hang dressing gowns etc. We would love to return next year, and hope for equally good weather!
