    We were a group of 6 adults, 2 kids and a baby staying for a long weekend in February. The house was perfect for us. A large communal area for us all to gather in, a separate play room for the kids, another lounge area to splinter off into, and 4 large well appointed bedrooms. Immaculately clean, beautiful views, very well equipped. The house was so good that, although as a group we like to go to a different part of the country each year, we will almost certainly come back. This place absolutely deserves its high rating.

    Incredible cottage in an amazing location. We (6 adults 4 children) had a wonderful and very comfortable stay. The owner was helpful and easy to contact to arrange key collection etc. Plenty for the children to do both indoors and out in the surrounding area. We'll definitely be visiting again. Highly recommended.

    Really fantastic house for a big group. There are huge separate spaces to suit all ages. The owner is very responsive and on hand to resolve any issues. We got one of the major supermarkets to deliver food when we arrived as there is not a lot available locally. There are dvds, books and games available and the table tennis table is very decent (I play and know a good table from a bad one and lots of rental properties have tables which are not good!)

    Fantastic extended family holiday with 2 babies & 2 dogs. We loved Lock cottage & would love to go again. We visited many places including Wells next to the sea, Southwold, Sherringham, took the steam train from Aylsham to Wroxham & then had a boat trip. Wroxham Barn was amazing which the little ones loved. Thank you for a wonderful time!

    We stayed at here recently and it was a lovely place very clean and the brownies for the arrival were a nice touch. The children loved the play room with plenty to do to keep them entertained would stay here again

    We were there generations staying at the cottage and plenty of room to spread out and do our own thing. Well equipped and furnished it made a lovely holiday experience and we all agreed that we would definitely use again. The table tennis was a huge bonus.

    A fabulous house with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a week or more away from home. Well laid out and with plenty of space both inside and out. We had 3 families stay and there's enough space that you aren't getting under each other's feet. Lovely garden, we brought our collapsible tennis net and apart from a couple of stray shots it is plenty large enough! Lovely outdoor seating area and a good Charcoal BBQ. Having a canoe, oars and life jackets for use was a lovely touch though it's quite heavy for 2 people to lift and get to the Claridge meadow in order to launch! The kids room (together with the largest TV I've ever seen!) was great and had loads of toys and games that kept my 3 boys occupied when we needed some peace! Also the DVD player / Playstation and films provided some distraction at times.

    Very impressive capacious property that is well appointed inside and out. On entering, the massive kitchen/family room greets you and this space alone easily swallowed our group of 4 adults plus 3 teenagers. Additionally the house is perfectly appointed with another two separate ‘lounges’ all with TV’s along with four well proportioned bedrooms two being ensuite plus separate bathroom, so brilliant for our multi generational family group. Fantastic large garden with private gated driveway making a safe enclosure for the dog. We all enjoyed the table tennis room, boules, bbq, boxed games mention just a few of the many items provided. Would highly recommend this property 😊

    This well-equipped, beautifully furnished property is a real delight. There is plenty of space within the property so there is never a feeling of being on top of one another or of a lack of space. One of the bedrooms has the most amazing window, which overlooks the meadows that abut the garden, while another has a door straight onto a balcony offering a place to sit quietly and take in the local scenery. The provision of a welcome pack with home-made Brownies, tea, milk and coffee was a very kind touch and much appreciated after our lengthy drive. Beautiful walks are on the doorstep, across to the meadows and the local river where people take their canoes (there is a canoe at the property for use by guests). The local village is lovely and there is a very good butchers shop nearby (great for buying stuff for the Barbie). On one afternoon, we had the joy of watching a weasel running across the lawn for around an hour as it hunted for prey. Locals that we spoke to told us about the otters that could be seen in the local river, although we had no luck in spotting them ourselves. The property is in a great location with short drives (about 25 minutes) to Cromer, Sea Pallings and Holt for the ladies who like boutique shopping. Wroxham is also a short drive away where we hired a boat for the day and had a relaxing day on the Norfolk Broads, stopping at a riverside inn for drinks. My wife and our 6 friends have been taking long weekend breaks for a good number of years. This is a property that we would happily return to.
