What an amazing location and a complete escape with stunning scenery. We saw lots of wildlife during the daytime and at night the stars took your breathe away. There is no light pollution to spoil this dazzling show. Each morning we enjoyed a cuppa on the top floor looking out the hall windows over the fields. It was great to see and experience theRead more farmers working and planting their potatoes. I only wish we had found this before for our holidays. Thank you for a very special time. Hide

Lovely spacious warm cottage in a peaceful setting. Very clean and well presented. We arrived just prior to the second lockdown and were therefore able to finish our break in this very tranquil setting with everything we needed to hand.

Cottage in a very peaceful location with plenty of wildlife (muntjac and roe deer, hares, partridges, barn owl etc.) in the fields around. Ideal centre for exploring the North Norfolk coast from Hunstanton to Cromer. Had all the comforts of home with plenty of space to spread out. Would happily recommend and hope to go back before too long.

The cottage is in a great location and is very quiet. Ideal for the dog with walks outside the door - we didn't need the lead. It is very warm and spacious. It is semi-detached but designed in a way that we never heard our neighbour in the 3 days over New Year.

Such a lovely warm and clean cottage. We were going to a wedding nearby and it was perfect for us. The spacious bathrooms and bedrooms are terrific. We loved to sit and look out over the countryside and watch the owl quartering and the sparrow hawk diving around. Lots of room throughout to relax and unwind. The barn is light and airy with a well seRead moret out area downstairs with everything you need. Great walks and pubs around the area a fantastic base for North Norfolk. Hide
