Just returned from a 5 night break at Golden Cross. High quality accommodation both in terms of the accommodation and the facilities/equipment available. In great rural location but within easy reach of near by towns and the coast. Provided a perfect get away after Christmas and the provision of a fully decorated Christmas Tree reflects the attention to detail. Would highly recommend.

A lovely property in a rural location which was peaceful, and the hosts were friendly. You could not fault the accommodation and the king-size bed was soooo comfortable.
Mrs Arstall

The cottage was beautiful and the owners were lovely too. The shower is amazing, a lovely quite and peaceful location which is good for touring Norfolk and Suffolk. Will definitely be booking again.

If you have young grandsons to entertain during the school holiday for Half Term, and have to make sure they are not bored, you might not think a holiday cottage in a Norfolk Village would be the thing to do, especially when you take into account that they come from a village in Suffolk!! We found it very comfortable, and for some reason, the boys liked to keep their room tidy??The cottage was lovely and clean and welcoming, as were the Owners, and couldn't do enough for us. We went for local walks and saw cattle and Llamas, and all kinds of wildlife. We drove for days out to Alderburgh, and all seaside places within an hours drive, like Southwold, and Gt Yarmouth to see the magnificent Sea Life Centre which was well worth a visit, and kept the boys amused, together with all the fish and chips and lovely fresh sea food wherever we went, plus we bought some and took it back for tea, with bread all fresh from the little shop in an adjoining village on the way home. There is no light pollution at the cottage at night, and the sound of the owl as I stood outside the back door and looked up at the stars one night was lovely. The stars were so beautiful, you could see the Milky Way, and the whole time spent there which I think was Sunday night to Thurs night of Half Term was so relaxing , even with young men who were never bored at any point. They had to be home by Friday as it was Halloween, and they were going to a Party, so we dropped them off, and, as I listened to them talking to their parents, who seemed a lot more relaxed for having had some time to themselves, and hearing them recount all they had done, and showing off photos they had taken, plus seeing them laugh and laugh at the tricks they played on their granddad, I realised it had been more fun for them than I had anticipated it would have been when I booked it. We live 2 hours drive away from them, and so, it was a pleasure to have them all to ourselves, and the cottage had a great deal to do with that. It provided for all our needs. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, old, young, whatever your needs, if you want a nice relaxing stay, in peace and quiet with lots of fresh air, and sea air only a drive away, go and stay there. My only gripe was that the satnav took us home a few times the "country roads way ", until we got our bearings and took a more direct route, but that is the problem of the satnav, not the cottage.
