    I had a wonderful week at Foxwood. Isobel the owner is a fantastic host. Such a warm welcome on arrival with homemade cakes as a bonus. Very homely, quiet location with the sound of owls to lull you to sleep. Even though not the warmest time of year there was additional heating that soon got the cottage cosy.

    We arrived to a warm welcome from Isobel, with cake and scones awaiting us in the cottage. From the photos, we thought that the kitchen was open plan with the lounge area, and we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was in fact a separate room. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. Despite picking the coldest week for a decade, we were warm and cosy, with Isobel and Eric checking regularly that we were warm enough, and even offering us food supplies on the day of the snowstorm. The location is excellent - about 30 to 45 minutes drive from the coast and other tourist attractions. There is a bus to Norwich which stops 2 minutes walk from the cottage. We would definitely recommend this cottage!

    Really enjoyed our stay. It was good to see that the owners have kept the character of this 18th century property. The owners are a lovely couple very helpful and friendly. On arrival scones, cake were provided which was totally unexpected and welcomed. The property is in easy reach of Norwich either by car or public transport, bus stop just a few yards away. Should one wish to visit the Norfolk Broads this is within a 30 min car ride. Would recommend Foxwood to friends.

    Lovely cottage and a lovely owner. We were treated with scones, cakes and meringues on arrival. The owner briefed the cottage and the locality, and gave us tips on where to go. She even offered to arrive the previous night to beat the traffic next day. The cottage itself was a 1700s classic, cosy and well equipped. Was a great experience, and would definitely recommend.

    Foxwood is a lovely, quiet and comfortable place to stay. Isabelle was very friendly and helped to make our stay enjoyable. The 'goodies' on arrival (scones, cream, jam, meringues, cream sponge cake!) were really lovely. We were very lucky with the weather and were able to relax on the recliners in the garden and sunbathe and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in on holiday. Thank you again Isabelle for a really good 9 days. Great we were able to stay an extra 2 days at the end.

    This holiday home was an apartment to the side of a large house. It has its own entrance, garden, and parking space. The house was built in 1780 so the apartment has some quirky features but has been renovated to a high standard. The owners are very kind and helpful without being intrusive, the welcome pack was lovely, homemade scones and jam, with fresh cream and butter, as well as everything we needed to tide us over till we went shopping. We liked it so much we were able to stay an extra few days.

    This cottage was very comfortable and in a quiet location. It provided us with the right area in which to explore Norwich and its locality. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we very much enjoyed the extra treats they left for us.
