Lovely peaceful retreat
Emily's Retreat is a spacious, comfortable bungalow, furnished and furbished to a high standard. The owner Nici has supplied many very thoughtful extras, from wine to plasters to bedside torches. The property was spotlessly clean (vital of course today) and there were numerous cleaning products you could use. There is a huge selection of DVDs and books. The bed was super comfortable and the shower hot and powerful. The garden is quite magical and a tranquil delight to sunbathe in, if you are lucky with the weather. The bungalow felt slightly cold and damp, but we were the first visitors of the reopening after lockdown and we had several days of rain. There are storage heaters and electric heaters to keep you cosy. There were a few annoying flies so this might be a problem in a hot summer.The bungalow is well situated for visits to many attractions. I recommend Gooderstone Water Gardens - absolutely beautiful, and Norfolk Lavender which makes for an interesting stop on the way to the coastal resorts. We bought a lovely hand painted glass solar bird bath (very reasonable cost) and the lavender cake is delicious. All in all we had a very relaxing and comfortable stay at Emily's Retreat.
