Comfortable, clean, fully equiped, ideal location for visiting the local towns and villages.

5 of 5
This delightful cottage gave the four of us a most pleasurable stay last week. We were provided with milk, bread, eggs and butter of which we thank the owner. The cottage was very clean and the beds extremely comfortable. The cottage was a perfect location for visiting some of Norfolk's charming villages with their appealing shops and eating hostelries. The fish shops were well visited and supported by us. We cannot praise our stay too much as we were also blessed with the best of British weather after a long and forgetful winter and early spring. Thank you, our stay was so enjoyable and agreeable.

Louise, the Owner gave us a fantastic welcome when we arrived.

5 of 5
The cottage is very well situated on the Market Square tucked away down a quiet private entrance. Bank House, is amazing, full of character and oddles of home comforts. One of the best Cottages I have stayed in. It was warm and cosy with instant hot water from a combi boiler. Hingham is a lovely Georgian village with an excellent Bakers, Butchers, Newsagent, Fish and Chip shop and Pub/Hotel within a 2 minute walk and a large CO-OP 8 mins walk away. A bus goes into Norwich every 30 mins from the bus stop opposite the house. On street parking was never a problem. We will be returning as we all had a brilliant time.
