Fab Cottage, perfect for weekend getaway
My boyfriend and I had a lovely weekend staying at this cottage! It was the perfect base from which to explore the local village and the nearby priory, and was surprisingly large for our needs. The location is amazing - There was a cute cafe and a welcoming pub within walking distance, and it was fun to explore on foot. The village itself is charming and completely unspoiled, and the residents were very friendly and made us feel completely relaxed. It was a short walk from the village to the priory, and there were a number of countryside walks to choose from which we'd love to come back and explore more of in the future! The cottage itself was very clean and well looked after, and we really appreciated the welcome basket which was a thoughtful touch and made us feel at home! While we spent most of our time exploring the countryside, we loved the coziness of the front room which had a real log fire and comfy sofas. The rest of the cottage was also surprisingly large and spacious, especially the kitchen/dining area, and the twin bedroom upstairs. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and look forwards to coming back in the future! Shirley & Ben

An absolutely delightful stay. Highly recommended.
We booked to stay at Pear Tree Cottage as a last minute get away and we were extremely glad we did! The cottage is in a wonderful peaceful, little village with plenty of countryside walks right on the doorstep. The village itself boasts not only a Castle but also an impressive Priory as well as welcoming pubs and a well-stocked shop - all within a short walk of the cottage! The cottage itself was very clean and well-equipped; everything we needed was provided. There was even a dishwasher and washing machine. The guide put together by the owners was extremely helpful and even included tips on the places to eat nearby. We were surprised that there was quite so much space upstairs in the cottage, as quite often with older buildings the roof is so low! However, the sensible layout meant we had plenty of space and were very comfortable. The bed was honestly one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in, and the sheets were of an outstanding quality. It made such a noticeable difference. The cottage was lovingly decorated and very homely. Perfect for night in by the fire with a movie and takeaway from the local chip shop. The bathroom was clean and toilet paper was provided. The shower was decent and the water was a good temperature. Even though the cottage looked quaint from the outside, the rooms were all a good size so we had plenty of space for both us and our dog. The garden space was lovely and well-established, with a secure fence so we knew the dog was safe. For a great day out with the dog (s), we'd recommend heading to Wells-next-the-sea, there's a fantastic dog friendly cafe right next to a beach with plenty of space for your four legged friend to have a really good run. Norfolk is extremely doggy friendly! We had a truly wonderful time staying at Pear Tree Cottage and would wholely recommend it. Thank you!

Property needed some TLC
Lazily decorated - awful bathroom - very small bath which would be fine if the shower was ok but it wasn't - rusty blinds and soap from the 1970's. Very uncomfortable beds. Damp smell masked by overpowering scent diffuser that was so strong we had to put it outside. Rotten skirting boards. No loo paper on arrival. Old fashioned welcome basket with condensed milk and other bits we would never use (would have preferred loo roll) Good points - lovely location and comfy sofa.

A lovely relaxing country cottage in a lovely village. It was very cosy & homely with very comfy beds. Loved the fact we could sit in the extended kitchen area & watch the morning birds in the very cottagey country garden. Loved every minute of it. We need 2 weeks next year, will definitely book!
