    We have just had a fantastic f ew days at Thyme Cottage in this lovely village. Apart from going to the local Chequers Pub for a meal and then to Tesco for some milk (2 miles away) we never left the village as there were so many great walks to do with the dog. If you need shops Watton is just 2 miles away. Can't wait to return to this idyllic location.

    We had a great stay .the local people were lovely . The only down side to the holiday was it was supposed to be a secure garden we have a lurcher and it got out through a hole in the fence.we never sore the owners once you pick the key up from a key lock at the cottage and leave it there when you go.having said that we did have a good holiday.

    We had a couple of issues, 1 with access and one with the shower, however we received great support, the cottage itself is very nice, with a great living area, nice outside space and a quite location, locals very welcoming, would certainly visit again. The owner was very understanding and supportive with the shower issue and sent a plumber immediately.

    A quiet and tranquil setting. Great hosts that were very accommodating. Pub and restaurant within walking distance. Fully recommend for a relaxing week away from the hassle of life.

    Very disappointed with the owners, they had gone on holiday and obviously forgot they had a booking. We were chasing around the day before still trying to make contact for key collection etc. On arrival there was no information, no visitor book ( which was a first ), there was a folder telling you how to use the kettle but, nothing telling you where anything was or what to do with the recycling or bins etc. When the owners arrived back on the Friday before we left they didn't introduce themselves or apologise for the contact issues.
