The living area is larger than it appears on photos and spacious for 4 people. The kitchen is very nice with a larger fridge freezer, oven hob dishwasher etc, the only welcome addition would be a washing machine if your staying for a week or more.

We enjoyed a lovely long weekend and were touched by the personal attention to detail arriving to a birthday card for my wife having only briefly mentioned to Anthony in an email some time ago this was one reason for our visit. The house has everything you need for a pleasant, hassle free stay. Wroxham, Great Yarmouth, Norwich and the Broads are all just a short drive away and we made use of the nearby shop and fish & chip shop which are within walking distance. Arrival was easy and Anthony's communication via email beforehand was prompt, polite and efficient. We had no cause to disturb the caretakers next door but were reassured to know they were there. All in all a great option as a base for exploring the many local villages and attractions and we would definitely recommend on this basis.

From the moment we opened the entrance door (struggled to open the key safe) we were in awe of the immaculate & modern design of the property. Every room was well equipped & the kitchen / dining / TV lounge area was ideal for the six of us. My wife & i had the "main bedroom" (seemed fair as we organised the trip). It reminded us of a penthouse suite we once stayed. The second room was just as spacious but had twin beds. The third (double) room didn't have en-suite facilities ( i must of misunderstood the property description), although a bathroom was directly opposite across the landing. Although you need transport to reach all of the local amenities, i would definitely return & would even recommend the cottage to friends & family (something i very rarely do as everyone has different tastes & standards). We all enjoyed the essential food pack (fresh bread, milk etc.) which greeted us upon our arrival (particularly the huge chocolate sponge cake). We had organised outings for the days we stayed but we would be quite happy to spend "day time" at the cottage making use of the peaceful garden(s) & available barbecue facilities.
