    We love staying at Lapwing. It's perfect for a stroll into Yarmputh or a riverside walk to Freshwater. The house is spacious and equipped with everything you could possibly need.

    What can we say about Lapwing? Its delightful, a lovely cottage; spacious, light, clean and very well equipped. Every room has been tastefully decorated and feels cozy and welcoming. We will definitely be returning .... its the ideal place to stay for a relaxed holiday.

    Lapwing is a beautifully presented home from home. It is the best equipped "holiday" home we have stayed in. On arrival you are greeted by a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits which were gratefully received after a horrendous day of travelling. The house is very spacious and comfortable with just about everything you could wish for. The enclosed courtyard garden is just perfect for enjoying breakfast or dinner (weather permitting of course). The house is well located in Yarmouth with plenty of options for eating out, a bakers, deli, pharmacy, grocery shop, as well as the usual "tourist" type shops. There are plenty of walks that can be enjoyed directly from the house. The only thing to factor in to the cost of the holiday is the parking. There is no parking at this property (which is well documented) and you have to park just around the corner. We had difficulty with the pay by phone option and this was not very intuitive. This is in no way the fault of the property, but is something to be aware of when working out your costings. We would definitely like to stay here again in the future and have already put in a recommendation to a family member.
