  • "A really great stay thank you."

    The only thing was it was difficult to get the kids to sleep because the roof windows had no blinds. We will definitely stay again.

  • "Both couples found it difficult to find the cottage when we arrived at 5 PM as it was dark there is no signage in the village or when you arrive outside the gates ."

    The property was lovely and spacious and the bedrooms and beds very comfortable with lovely white bed linen. Both showers in the bathrooms need updating...but we managed. The kitchen was fully equipped and the lounge and dining table was excellent. TV and DVD very good. The location and parking (once we found it) was brilliant.

  • "The location was perfect, however one small bath towel per bathroom, and no fore warning that you needed to take a bath towel, Fridge not working correctly, dust in places and the top of the fridge full of dust."

  • "Watching hares at the edge of the adjacent wheatfield early in the morning; muntjac deer crossing the road before us, were highlights of staying in this rural retreat."

    We were able to access the coast from Burnham to Mundesley without too much driving. Beaches & stately homes are not too far away. The accommodation at Pear Tree Cottage is spacious, comfortable and fairly well equipped.

  • "The location of Pear Tree suited us perfectly, and we particularly appreciated the privacy of the patio and view over the fields."

    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!

  • "Our second year back to Acorn cottages and we were not disappointed, it’s was really lovely to just sit and chill in relaxing surroundings."

    Although the this year the weather was against us the cottage had a warm and cozy feel to it. Loved the area. The Local pub and store made us welcome such lovely friendly people, our first break of the year and we weren’t disappointed with anything.

  • "The cottage was very spacious and the setting was lovely."

    The play park was a bonus and the location was 30 mins from most places we wanted to visit. There were lots of cobwebs but that is to be expected with the high ceilings of a barn. The bathrooms could do with a bit of a spruce up but that said the accommodation overall was very comfortable. The contact was also very helpful via email with answering queries. We would definitely stay again.

  • "Spacious, comfortable, clean barn, set in countryside, in very well kept quiet, gated grounds."

    Very private even though linked to other properties. Facilities and large field with play area as described. Easy access to various beaches within 30min pretty drive, Norfolk broads a little further. Really enjoyed it there. Mrs Robinson

  • "This is the most tranquil setting we have ever visited."

    The locals are all friendly and the cottage very clean and comfortable. I would say though that as this is a barn conversion with very high ceilings it is prone to spiders. We would definitely stay there again.

  • "Lovely place to stay ,,the only negative thing we can say ,we chose the cottage because it said wheelchair access and it was but although we didn’t expect disabled bathroom we did think there would be a grab rail in shower and over bath there wasn’t anything to hold on to consequently my wife could not have a shower so l think owners should address that even in most places we have been to there is a grab rail ."

    But overall we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and have found sykes a very good firm to deal with most helpful and professional.

  • "Fabulous Barn Conversion, but very rural, which we knew about so not a negative."

    Lovely views over the country side from the lounge. Wonderfully comfortable and cozy. Had everything you needed in the kitchen (pubs/eateries closed due to COVID) so a great equipped kitchen came in handy. We highly recommend this property and the agency that looks after the properties was very helpful.

  • "Pear Tree has excellent facilities."

    ..it is large, spacious and has a great kitchen and living area. It is 1.25 miles down single track roads so careful driving is important. Owners are incredibly helpful...this has been our second visit and we hope to come again. Try out the East Barsham Arms for great food...amazing chef!

  • "The cottage was very spacious - particularly large open plan sitting room, dining area and kitchen."

    Very quiet rural location - we saw hares running in the field opposite and a kestrel landed on the picnic table right outside the patio doors. Lighting could have been better for reading in the sitting area and towels could have been larger. Very well equipped cottage with laundry facilities etc. Cleaning score would have been higher if cobwebs were dusted and patio windows cleaned.

  • "This was the first time we stayed at Pear Tree and we all loved it."

    The location, added an extra wow to our holiday. We spent a great week there, timed to celebrate our two youngest children's birthdays,which was spent at the not so far away West Runton beach, 31 minutes drive. The facilities were spot on, and the space was endless, our 3 children enjoyed the twice daily countryside walks, and the enclosed park, though a bit too small for the table tennis. The addition of a pull out sun roof over the back door would really enhance the cottage but elsewise totally awesome. Thank you

    This year we booked for two weeks in order to more leisurely explore North Norfolk. The cottage and surroundings really do have so much to commend and offer. The peaceful location cannot be over valued. As with last year, the property owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We so enjoyed our stay.

  • "As other people have said, the property is much more spacious than the photos would suggest."

    It was warm, clean and comfortable on arrival and the view from the large window in the dining area was beautiful. The grounds are well kept too. It was well equipped particularly in the kitchen. We would suggest larger bath towels to add that touch of luxury and maybe a power shower. We would certainly stay there again as it is a perfect base to see Norwich and the coast. We were impressed by another Sykes Cottage!

  • "The photos don't really do the cottage justice."

    There is a lot more space than it looks, the bedrooms are a really good size, plenty of room in the living room and the kitchen area bigger than you have at home. We have two very active boys aged 8 and 11 and there was plenty of room for them to play inside and in the play area out. Wifi worked really well, ok the phone reception wasn't always great, but when your away does that really matter ? You are never really any more than 20-30 minutes away from going and doing anything, seaside, crabbing, steam railway, boat hire on the Broads, NT sites and so much more. A very good place to stay

  • "This was our first booking with Sykes and the pre."

    trip information provided helped with our planning and alley possible concerns. Pear Tree Cottage was absolutely great and really suited us ~ being both retirees and looking for comfort and peace and quiet. We found the cottages location most ideal for exploring Nth. Norfolk and that, quite simply, a week was not long enough. During our stay the owners looked in upon us to check that all was o.k. ~ very friendly. Pear Tree is most definitely a place to which we will be wanting to return. Our "Thanks" to Sykes for your help and professionalism.

    The property was fantastic, the only thing I would suggest is a better light over the dining table perhaps one that could be raised and lowered as needed otherwise the place is perfect. The village shop at Guist was very handy as was the little shop in Foulsham. The nearest pub was the Queens Head as Foulsham which do lovely meals. All in all a peaceful quite away from it all holiday with helpful friendly owners.
