Absolutely excellent accommodation in Norfolk. It had everything we could possibly need for a quiet week away. The owners were friendly, the cottage was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect.
Miss Williamson

This is absolutely excellent accommodation in a great location for a quiet holiday. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen is very well equipped with a full oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster and kettle. There is a lovely little patio out the back, we were lucky with the weather and thoroughly enjoyed eating our breakfast outside in the sunshine. There was also a very comfortable bed, table and chairs, a large shower (towels provided) and plenty of space outside to put our peddle bikes. The owners are friendly and helpful and it was an excellent base for exploring Norfolk. The only possible criticism we could make is that the wifi really didn't work inside the barn, but quite frankly we rather enjoyed being disconnected for a few days. Overall, a fantastic place to have a holiday.

The area itself is truly beautiful and the studio barn was perfect. The outlook was so peaceful and relaxing and the owners were really friendly and had good knowledge about the area for our days out and places to eat. We would certainly recommend this place and will be visiting again. If this is the standard of property that you have on your books then well done.

The property was clean, luxurious and in peaceful surroundings. There were many attractions close by. This is one of the best cottages I have ever stayed in.
Mr Van Embden

We had a very peaceful and relaxing holiday. The cottage was in a good place for visiting places like Cromer and Yarmouth, which were within an hours drive. Sitting on the patio during the day or in the evening just watching the birds in the fields or reading a book made it the most relaxing holiday we have had. Thanks again to the owners for a lovely retreat, will definitely be booking it next year.
