    Comfortable, very spacious, spotlessly clean, well equipped. Just needs a dishwasher then it would be a perfect 10 out of 10! Thank you for making us so welcome.

    The website said (and, at time of writing, still says) that there was a pub 20 yards away. This was one of the filters that we applied when selecting this property. But the pub stopped trading months before our visit. So that meant that we had to drive somewhere for an evening meal, or eat in. Thus, we did not have the holiday experience that we searched out. This misleading statement should be removed from the property description.

    Chris and Margaret warmly welcomed us to the wing of their sprawling mansion amid almost 3 acres of beautiful garden, explaining some of the features of this gem of a cottage. We noticed the Customers’ Choice award for 2016, which was well earned. It takes skill to hide a full-sized tennis court in a garden, but they have achieved it. Full marks to the gardener. The whole house was clean, tidy and well-equipped. 10/10 to the cleaner too. The two of us rattled around in the enormous three-bedroom accommodation that seemed to have more floor area than our own home and could comfortably swallow a family of five, all doing their own thing. The vast upstairs lounge with its comfortable settee and armchairs in front of the Freeview TV got the most use, but we sat on the comfy sofa in the dining/garden room to enjoy another view of the lawned area over a cup of tea. The large, main bedroom had a comfortable, if a little creaky bed, to match the floor. The wardrobe and dressing table handles tapped in time to our footsteps, but that only added to the quirky charm of the cottage and was resolved by wrapping tissues around them. A word of caution - when empty, the wardrobe had a tendency to tip forward when its doors were opened, but this improved when weighted down with clothes. The kitchen/breakfast room was well equipped. The large table was convenient, and used for all our meals. Having toilets on both floors was a definite advantage, given the size of the house. The ample parking was conveniently located nearest to the cottage and well signed. A few driving tips: Coast road is very long and TomTom guided us to the middle of the postcode so we overshot on arrival. I should have relied on the instructions in the booking form which clearly advise that when approaching from the South, as you turn off the B1159 North Walsham Road, look out for the sandwich board for Margaret’s Doll World on the left, before the pub and the first turning. Between Bacton and Hunstanton, the coast road is quite slow going, so bear this in mind when planning trips. At the end of our stay, it was closed Eastbound from Cromer for water main replacement and the diversion went quite a way inland. Routes to places of interest often include single track roads, which also take longer than planned.

    Chris & Margaret were lovely hosts. The cottage was really quirky and spacious, furnished with a lovely retro feel and spotlessly clean. The little welcome pack of milk, chocolates, beer, wine and haribos was much appreciated. The grounds are beautiful and guests have the freedom of these as well as a lovely private sun trap patio with garden furniture. Bacton has a nice beach when the tide is out, great fish & chips and a lovely cafe serving a fantastic breakfast. The village itself is well located to explore the complete North Norfolk coast. Thoroughly recommend for a holiday stay.
