    We loved this sweet little cottage, which is in a good central location for exploring Norfolk. My only complaint would be lack of glasses, crockery etc., there just wasn't enough of either, we ended up using kids plastic plates as dessert dishes and having to use kids glasses ( and a pint glass) to have a gin and tonic. I had booked this as a double and twin, but when we arrived it was two doubles, which was disappointing. Lots of character, clean and pretty though.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments, and I do apologise for the beds but on my confirmation it stated 3 adults so I assumed 2 double beds not twins. With regards to the crockery and the glasses the agency gave an inventory list and I have provided everything that was on the list. If you would have contacted us during your stay I would have provided the items you thought were missing.

    An excellent place to stay. Just the right size and particularly characterful. Also, very well-equipped. Could have done with more garden and some grass. Would have benefited from a moble phgone signal!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments and glad you enjoyed your stay. However with regards to mobile signal this is unfortunately out of my control, I can’t do anything about this but it is the whole area not just my cottage. I do apologise with regards to the garden, but I didn’t realise the agency hadn’t put the pictures on the site. I have spoken with the agency and asked them to put pictures on of the garden.
