    It was a fantastic break with super weather. Isobel and Eric (the owners) made us feel really welcome with cakes and scones on our arrival. The property is ideally situated for exploring the whole of Norfolk.

    Isobel and Eric could not have done more to ensure that we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at their charming cottage. From the quality furnishings and equipment to the welcome pack that included Isobel's meringues, fairy cakes and (due to our fortunate timing) some of Eric's birthday cake, this was a holiday deserving of its perfect 10 score. We loved the period features, including the original range oven – fortunately there is a more modern one to use! There may not be exciting nightlife in the immediate vicinity, but that is exactly why I chose this property. For relaxation, I would give it 11. There are pubs and eateries within walking distance and the "excitement" of Norwich is 4 miles away. with a bus stop 100 yards from the gate. My wife and I have holidayed in cottages and apartments in UK and Europe for over 30 years and this is the most comfortable, relaxed and "at home" we have ever felt.

    I had a wonderful week at Foxwood. Isobel the owner is a fantastic host. Such a warm welcome on arrival with homemade cakes as a bonus. Very homely, quiet location with the sound of owls to lull you to sleep. Even though not the warmest time of year there was additional heating that soon got the cottage cosy.
