Thetford Forest with walks from the High Lodge Forest Centre or Go Ape with the high wire forest adventure. Sandringham House shops and garden. Norfolk Broads with daily boat hire. Racecourse at Newmarket, Fakenham and Great Yarmouth. Bressingham - 4 railways, fabulous gardens and National Dads Army collection. Banham Zoo with car boot sale on Sunday mornings.

Best place we have ever stayed in
A warm welcome from the owner, including the heating, the welcome pack so you can have a cup of tea when you arrive . We highly recommend a stay at this lovely apartment.
Thank you Pauline and Paul for your very generous review.
You came from France to visit your 98 year old mother as well as your extended family in different parts of the UK over several weeks. It was also very kind of you to leave us two bottles of French wine including a Rose made in your own village.
Look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Clean comfy excellent accommodation
Peaceful but convenient for shops restaurants etc great accommodation and well looked after by owner
Thank you Philip and Audrey for your kind and positive comments on your visit. You came for a long weekend to see your family in a village near Dereham. Before your came you said your priorities were cleanliness and warmth - you confirmed with me that the apartment certainly met your expectations.
It was a pleasure to have you both stay.
Great apartment with lovely views
This is one of the best apartments we’ve stayed in. Everything you could possibly need - comfortable seating & bedding. The view over the golf course looked beautiful with the autumn colours. Shops within a short distance & attractions including National Trust venues, not too distant. Gressenhall Museum, not N.T. but really worth a visit. Would definitely choose to return. Thank you.
Thank you Les and Jean for your very positive summary of your stay in the apartment.
Like most people who stay you probably went through the two boxes of local attractions and found something different that suits their or their children's interests. Gressinhall being a Workhouse museum is absolutely fascinating for both old and young. Plus they have lots of additional events during the summer months. Norwich Castle museum in the town centre is also popular which can be combined with a shopping or theatre trip.
Look forward to welcoming you on a future visit to the area.
Excellent Holiday Accomodation in Ideal Location
We went to Norfolk to visit family and attend both a wedding and Quidenham Hospice last every Memory Day. Property was in ideal location close to Watton but in a very quiet location. The property was extremely well presented, clean and had almost everything we could need. Geoff and his wife were about during our stay and made us feel very welcome. Our dog was also made welcome and seemed to be very at home in her new surroundings. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Thank you Rosalind for your comments which are greatly appreciated. Samantha,our apartment manager, asked me to thank you for the gift you left her in appreciation of the extra work she automatically does following a visit of one of our canine friends.
Well appointed and quiet
Just what we were looking for and with the added benefit of flexibility on dates. Accommodation presented to good standard.
Thank you Jonathan and Susan for your review.
It was a pleasure to have you stay whilst you visited your family. I hope everything goes well with your father's operation and hope to see you again on future visits.
It was awesome
Loved this place.
Me and my niece stay her plenty of room and very clean. We had everything we need and more. I hoping to come back next year!!
Thank you Karen for reviewing your stay. I look forward to welcoming you back next year after your long journey from Canada.
