    Excellent, remote and quiet location. Spacious accommodation. Welcome provision of milk, wine, coffee and biscuits. Very convenient for local and coastal walks, and for visits to the numerous historic houses and gardens. Useful provision of leaflets about local attractions but unusually the cottage information pack is limited.

    We had a lovely stay at The Bothy (June 2017) having made a last minute booking when the rain finally decided to stop. The accommodation itself exceeded our expectations. It's small but spacious, light, airy, clean and modern - all the things I look for in a holiday let. It's ideal for a couple with a car or bikes. We arrived by train and walked down via the roads for 3 hours to get there. It wasn't difficult as Norfolk is very flat. Our return journey via the Weaver's Way was far more scenic. It took 4.5 hours but it's worth spending an entire day on an amble. Additional Highlights Courtyard garden and summer house Nice pubs nearby (most close between lunch and dinner). The Walpole Arms has a nice garden and good menu for meat eaters. Turn right out of The Bothy and continue until you get to the gates of a large hall with gardens. Look left and there is it. We had a lovely vegetarian meal at the Erpingham Arms. Lots of wildlife Very private - The Bothy is sandwiched between Puddle Barn holiday let and the owner's farm but you're not overlooked by either. Very untouristy.

    Comfortable and light, nicely decorated. Spaciouse for its size. Can be noisy above the bedroom from the other barn. Lovely private courtyard.Would be lovely and warm in colder months. Great central location.
