Absolutely beautiful cottage

5 of 5
I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, everything was perfect, it was spotless on our arrival with all the things you could possibly need, from a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival for that much needed cup of tea to the 3D tv with DVD and blueray films for our enjoyment, my daughter discovered a love of chess which was among the many board games provided, everything about the cottage is perfect, the Village of Northwold in which the cottage is situated is only minutes from Thetford Forest which affords some wonderful walks, if you like jet planes RAF Lakenheath is just a short drive where you can watch fighter jets take off and land, truly breathtaking. My family can't wait to return in the future.

Brilliant property

5 of 5
Real attention to detail during the renovation process. Very helpful and friendly owners whose architectural salvage business is close by. High quality furnishings and produce in the kitchen. Highly efficient central heating. Good pub over the road. Bus goes into Norwich half-hourly so leave your car in Hingham. Loved it all, even the weather was great, if chilly.
