Very clean, comfortable and cosy with great attention to detail. We loved all the little touches and interesting history of the cottage, discovering new things each day of our short stay. Local maps were useful, pleasantly surprised to find board games, a 3D TV, glasses and a selection of recent family films for evenings in. Cottage would be just as good for a romantic retreat or for a family stay. Just a short drive to Thetford forest and Oxburgh Hall.

Everything is of a high standard. The cottage is very comfortable with lovely en suite bedrooms and has plenty of space for a small group; there is also a lovely outdoors sitting area which has the afternoon sun. The cottage is very well equipped and is located very close to the Gin Trap Inn which we really enjoyed visiting. Despite the close proximity to the main road and pub we did not experience any disturbance from traffic etc. The village is a great base for the beaches ranging from Hunstanton to Wells and the man coastal footpath. The owner Alison was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and provided very helpful information about the property and the area. As this visit was for my wife's special birthday the bubbly and cake left for our arrival was exceptionally thoughtful. All in all probably the best rental experience we have had and one that is thoroughly recommended.
