    Perfect location and the cottage is like the Tardis. Plenty of wood on tap for the logburner which you find that you light even if it's not cold, just for that cottages feeling. As for value for money, accommodation to sleep six people, we thought we had a bargain. Hate to moan after such a fab stay but it was difficult to sleep in the very creaky upstairs bed. There were a few cobwebs on arrival and the bottom of the oven needed soaking up all the oil that had been spilt on it. As the cottage is located on the Main Street it was a bit worrying when there were no window locks on the property and we had computers etc left on the property during the day. Minor details really when compared to the whole week experience.

    We found the cottage very comfy clean and very roomy, the owners wee very friendly, the cottage had every thing we could have wanted, it was lovely seeing the ducks come to the garden twice a day. We had some great outings, did the Thursford christmas show, which was brilliant, ely christmas fair, and some great bird reserves, we had 81 species of bird in the week. We will definitely be going back to stay at Swan Cottage.

    A lovely peaceful location in a beautiful village. The cottage was clean and much bigger than anticipated. It had all the equipment needed to self cater and be comfortable. The location was perfect for exploring the surrounding area.

    We absolutely loved our week in Old Swan Cottage and would definitely stay again. The picturesque and friendly village of Great Massingham is a perfect base for exploring North Norfolk. The cottage itself was very clean, well equipped, warm and cosy, with very friendly and helpful owners. In fact, we just couldn't fault it! Overall, we would highly recommend Old Swan Cottage.

    For 2 people very spacious. Really comfortable beds! Also extremely warm cottage, hardly used central heating. Plenty of hot water. Very quiet (except sister who slept in front bedroom and heard the ducks on the pond talking away!!)

    A deceptively spacious cottage, with a lot of character in a pretty village. Very comfortable and extremely well equipped. The rooms were very large and as It was too cold to take advantage of the pretty shared garden we enjoyed sitting in the sun room. We didn't eat at the Dabbling Duck in the village, which is quite expensive, but found two or three good places to eat within a couple of miles. I would be more than happy to stay in the Old Swan Cottage again.

    Great location, not far to drive to anywhere on the North Norfolk coast. 4 big ponds with ducks to look at, a pub across the village green and a good little shop very close. accommodation very comfortable and in good order. Sandringham park just down the road

    Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Old Swan Cottage. The cottage had loads of character and plenty of room for my family. It is set in a beautiful location, perfectly situated for visits throughout West Norfolk and the North Norfolk Coast. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to my friends and family, which says it all really. I will certainly book again.

    The location of the Old Swan was superb. Good off road parking and lovely views over the duck ponds. We liked the layout of the cottage and the wood burner was a real highlight. Great village to walk from and our meal at the Dabbling Duck was exceptionally good.
