As usual I’ll repeat one takes the photos with a pinch of salt and you expect worse in reality, but in this case what you see is what you get. It was beautiful, spotless and smelt nice and fresh. You can park your car under a car port right outside, so if raining you don’t get wet getting luggage in. It was spotless and fresh accommodation with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, each with plenty of storage (wardrobe space and drawer space). Bathroom had a lot of towels provided, 6 if I remember. Sky TV with lots of channels. Nice touches like milk in the fridge, packet of chocolate biscuits and tea / coffee, and the kitchen and appliances were spotless and worked like they would at home. Drying rack and baby cot are also provided (very rare), along with baby booster chair. 6 seat dining table Comfy leather couch with recliners each side, and two arm chairs provide comfy seating for 5 in the lounge, dishwasher tablets and laundry powder. Stunning setting right on the golf course, spent each evening enjoying glass of wine reading the papers watching the sunset and dusk golfers. Two sets of patio doors that can be opened out on to the golf course. There is a table outside with plenty of chairs for alfresco dining. Decent 10MB wifi (for Norfolk) Can’t recommend enough.

The cottage was warm and cosy as we arrived on a cold wet Friday evening. There was a welcoming bottle of wine left for us. There was some lovely little touches, ie dressing gowns and slippers. The fridge was stocked with essentials, milk, butter, orange juice and bread, this kept us going the following morning. The cottage itself was decorated beautifully in keeping with it's character. The village has 2 lovely pubs, would definitely recommend the Inn on the Green, amazing food and atmosphere. I would strongly recommend this cottage to anyone. Myself, husband and 2 kids will definitely come back again to visit. Thank you Caryn for making us feel so welcome!
