Lovely cottage. Well equipped. Very quiet location, with Dereham shops, pubs etc 5 mins away. Would of liked a bigger enclosed space where we could let our dog off the lead.

Really enjoyed our stay in this excellently appointed cottage. A lovely rural base yet not far from the nearest town. The owners were extremely helpful.
