Hosts were very welcoming and helpful and it was a nice touch to have a bottle of wine in the fridge on our arrival. The property could certainly benefit from some TLC and it was disappointingly close to a busy main road. Not quite the "retreat" I was expecting.

Hi Peter, Thank you for your feedback, apologies that you feel the description is poor, we think the description is fine and does the cottage the justice it deserves. Such a shame that you received an ankle injury before your arrival and wasn't able to walk around the stunning lakes and woodlands. Pleased you found the beds comfortable and clean.

Good place for large groups. Road is busy during the day and garden not dog proof. Lovely walks around the lake. Outdoor towels provided. Welcome bottle of wine nice to see in the fridge along with plenty of ice. Place could do with some TLC but over all a good stay.

Very comfortable house, feels very homely, great for a few nights stay in Norfolk. Spa is a nice touch as is the fire in the living room and bedroom. Good base for exploring North Norfolk.
