    We would describe Manor Farm Retreat as a well loved home. It had every amenity we needed and we all felt very cosy and comfortable. To the owners we’d like to say “ well done” and thank you

    From a very warm welcome, this was a short break that was enjoyed by us all - a surprise 40th get away! The cottage was outstanding, everything you could possibly need - right there at your fingertips, would absolutely recommend and most definitely would return! The only criticism if I had to make one, was that we couldn’t work out the underfloor heating! So was very hot at night, maybe an idiots guide to the heating system would help the less technical minded - like us!!!

    Manor Farm Retreat is a beautiful, roomy holiday home with everything you could want for a relaxing break. We were greeted personally by Mrs Tomlinson who made sure we had everything we needed, and she had provided eggs from her own hens and sausages from a local farm - they were delicious. There were also biscuits, teabags, milk etc. Highly recommended.

    We had a lovely stay , I would suggest when it states it sleeps 10 , it could do with a better pull down bed , it was like laying on the floor , the pillows and duvets need replacing , this was discovered when taking the pillowcases of and duvet covers off that revealed how stained they were , the on suite , the one nearest to the kitchen really needs a good clean , loads of fluff in the extractor fan , and mouldy on the shower floor area , the other on suite could do with a bit of maintenance, and the red sofa is very stained . It was lovely and quiet, and pub at the end of the lane was absolutely amazing , the food was beautiful.

    This is the ideal cottage for a family holiday. It has all the equipment you could possibly need and is in a great location for exploring Norfolk. We would definitely return.

    We had a great holiday in this cottage. The cottage is very spacious, in both the living area and all the bedrooms, so great for a large group. There is a small patio outside, and a small orchard off to the front. As the cottage is located on a farm, there are lots of chickens running around, something that was a continual source of amusement for the kids. The owners, who live in the adjoining cottage were very friendly, and left a welcome pack of eggs and sausages on arrival (although not enough for everyone to try both an egg and a sausage!). The kitchen is reasonably well equipped but fridge space is limited (it's an under counter one), and there are a few very minor things that could have been better (bigger microwave, bigger teapot, proper BBQ instead of the disposable one that was provided). Another thing was that there were no locks on the en-suite bathroom doors, but all of these things are very minor and did not spoil our stay. The great thing about this cottage was the location, close to the coast, the Norfolk broads, Norwich etc etc, so there was so much to do, we could easily go for another week and still not have done everything. I would definitely recommend this lovely cottage.
