Adjoining the owners’ home, they are set in the pretty village of Freethorpe just 3 miles from the riverside inns in the broadland village of Reedham, where boats can be hired and visitors can enjoy a spot of fishing or simply watch the waterborne world go by. The surrounding country lanes are ideal for walking and cycling, and nearby Breydon Water is a paradise for bird watchers. The market town of Acle is 3 miles and Winterton’s glorious beach, with its 6 mile walk offers seal watching. Cromer is famous for its seafood. The cathedral city of Norwich enjoys fine shopping and the RSPB reserves are within easy reach. Golf and fishing available locally. Beach 8 miles. Shop 150 yards, restaurant 3 miles.

A lovely little place - just right for the two of us. Lots of character and a secluded garden. Very quite area but easy access to lots of lovely places in Norfolk. The owners were really nice and helpful. Can thoroughly recommend!

Perfect little bolt hole for 2 adults and 1 dog. It is quite comfortable & cosy but could do with a few more essential kitchen items for self catering as there are no eateries close by. The new owners are absolutely lovely - very friendly & helpful and I'm sure they will breathe new life into this cute cottage. The bedroom fan was a huge hit for us as the weather was particlularly hot - thanks so much. Also we had a catastrophe with our car and a fairly local garage that we literally stumbled upon managed to get the parts and fit us in for a repair by the end of the same day as they knew we had a very long journey home. Fantastic service & reasonably priced too, so a huge shout out for GR Carter Motors (a family run business). We hope to be back soon :)

Charming converted barn, with mezzanine bedroom, wooden flooring, and a nice bathroom with a very pleasant bathtub, which came in handy after canoeing and trekking in the Norfolkian countryside. The kitchen was lacking in basic equipment (no whisk, no milk jug, no mixing bowls), so as a self-catering cottage it was a little wanting - especially as there is no pub nearby serving food. The village has a wonderfully fascinating parish church with a round tower and a connection to England's first Prime Minister, and there are other interesting churches in the neighbouring villages, but the village had otherwise little to offer, apart from a little grocery store with the bare essentials. It was well located for Norwich and the countryside, so that worked just fine for us, as we wanted a bit of both.
