Unfortunately really disappointed.
Stopped here as couldn't get any availability near the coast this year. The positives to this cottage is the enclosed garden, very good for our dog, and the bathroom is new and is clean. The bedding was clean and so were the towels, much appreciated. Unfortunately that's where the positives end, the rest of the cottage namely the lounge is cluttered with dark old furniture, the sofa has seen better days, ornaments and faux flowers everywhere just collecting dust really. We moved one of the sofas back to make some more room and it obviously hasn't been hoovered under for a long time. The hoover itself, when we arrived was full with the last occupants remnants, we had to empty it ourselves. There was also food left in the cupboards, half jars of honey and marmalade etc. The kitchen seems ancient, yes its equipped well, but there was still bits of food left in the fridge, toaster full of burnt bits, microwave has seen better days, so has the kettle, I could go on and on! The stairs are errmmm, steeper than I had imagined and the doorway to the other bedroom was very good at banging our heads on a regular basis (dont forget to duck) The village itself is really just in the middle of nowhere ( mistake on my part) We made the most of our holiday but will never return here. To the owners who I'm sure love this cottage, please think of updating the lounge and kitchen, it really is smelling fusty and old. To the cleaner, please try and do a better job, there was someone's pop bottle under my bed and tissues. Also a lucozade bottle left on top of the kitchen cupboards. I dont usually leave reviews but felt I really had to on this occasion. The cottage cost £830 for the week, we will be leaving a day or so earlier and returning home.

Really lovely character full property
The cottage is within easy travelling distance of the coast and market towns of Holt, Fakenham and Aylsham. The village has good amenities plus two public houses. There was everything you could have wanted in the cottage and more. Very comfortable and clean. Would definitely go back

Delightful, well equipped, comfortable cottage
We stayed in this delightful cottage over the Christmas period and were amazed at how beautifully it was decorated, even Christmas crackers were supplied. It is very well equipped with everything you would need for a stay. We took our two dogs so the garden was a bonus. The log fire made it for us as it was cold and frosty outside so we huddled around the fire. We paid a visit to Holt which is only a short drive away, a very quaint village with nice shops. Overall a very Happy Christmas break.

If you are looking for a real character cottage this is for you.From the wooden beams in the living room to the enormous fireplace it really was an absolute treat to stay here this week.Enclosed well maintained garden,fantastic if you have pets.There wasnt anything more we could have asked for .Hollyhedge cottage is well located for you to discover the beauty that lies within Norfolk. Wroxham Broads def worth a visit and Sheringham Park. Definitely give the Hunnybell restaurant a visit (5 mins) by car.Great atmosphere,location and desserts were to die for! :) Only 1 thing I would say is if anyone has trouble climbing stairs then the single room on ground floor is more suited.Other than that we didn't want to leave!

The cottage was in a central position for Thursford, Sherringham and Cromer. The garden was fully-enclosed if you have a dog and the wooden beams, the rope to pull you up the steep curved stairs and the large wood burner all added to the feel and comfort of the cottage.
