    Lovely cottage set in nice grounds. Made good use of the games room which had everything you could want. Nice village and shops/ eateries in nearby Long Stratton.

    Lovely Cottage, Very Clean, Best Welcome pack of any of the cottages we have hired down the years. Cottage owner Harry Bowers very helpful, in many ways. Great Games room.

    The bedrooms and bathrooms in this cottage are lovely, clean and a good size, the welcome basket was also a nice touch. The living area however is awful and nothing seemed to work. We were only there a matter of minutes before the owner requested a deposit of £250 - I'm not quite sure what for, but this is a dated concept, I have stayed in a lot of cottages over the years and never have I been asked for a deposit. To be fair to him I did find this in the small print on my confirmation letter, I still didn't part with it though. No wifi is unforgiveable in this day and age. There is a sign outside that says there is no wifi talk to each other - we do talk to each other actually, we also live in the real world. No wifi would have been manageable if the house didn't appear to be cased in iron as the minute you step anywhere near you lose your signal. The TV didn't work, there was an issue with the volume, so the owner showed us how to work around this and had also provided us with another smaller TV, so the big TV had no sound but you could switch on the smaller TV to get sound, it was like living in Curry's!!! I ordered a Tesco shop, the fresh items were absolutely not going to fit into the sub-standard fridge. I opened the dishwasher and just closed it again, I wasn't going to go there, a tip to the owner though is to put some salt in it! The rugs in the living room were absolutely disgustingly filthy, I wouldn't let the kids take their shoes off. I tried to hoover up but naturally that didn't work either, even the dustpan and brush were cracked, trying to sweep up all the wasps that we had to kill was a nightmare. The hob was ok, but the oven is hideous, it's impossible to cook a meal in it because it takes so long to heat up and didn't heat properly. There were 2 tin openers neither of which worked, I mean come on you can get those in poundland! I gave up when even the scissors didn't work... The games room was ok, the kids enjoyed it, the jukebox didn't work and the kids aren't allowed in there alone, even though its just next door. There was a sign for a £20 deposit. The barbecue outside looked surprisingly clean, however there is a charge for the gas so we gave that a miss. This cottage is in the middle of nowhere, you can't walk to the pub or anywhere actually. It was massively overpriced and the living area really needs to be cleaned and updated. The cheap TVs and sub-standard fridge are testament to the complete lack of respect the owner has for his guests. If you have a disposable £250 that you're happy to hand over for no reason, and if you don't keep getting pestered for it, don't want cold milk, like wasps, don't mind filth and sticky chairs this is the place for you. I love Norfolk but I won't be coming back here and I definitely would not recommend.
