About Catherine Joice

I have lived in Norfolk all my life. Daughter of a well known Norfolk farming family I married a farmer in 1963. I worked doing farm accounts and then in 1970 I started renovating the old cottages which I had bought in 1968. This grew into a letting business which I have been doing for over 40 years

I converted old farm buildings into a Saddlery Shop and employed a full time saddler and our herdsman's daughter as an assistant who also helped with the horses. In 1983 when my husband was tragically killed I found it difficult to manage the farm and the Saddlery business so converted the building into a holiday cottage in 1987. My son now looks after this cottage but I do all the lettings

Guestbook comments from the owner

January 2014 We have just had a 5 week stay. The cottage is very spacious, well presented, very well equipped and has a lovely homely feel about it. Easy access to wherever you might wish to visit. We enjoyed our stay so much we are hoping to return next year

Lovely comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean comfortable 3 bed cottage, with a kind welcome basket of bread, eggs, butter & milk. (Plus fresh daffodils in the kitchen)

Although the weather wasn't great for our weekend we enjoyed the log burner in the evenings and our hosts recommendations for restaurants/pubs were spot on.

The Crown Inn at East Raynham and The Brisley Bell at Dereham were both great.

Nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

Nice cottage in lovely location. We stayed 6 weeks and Owners were very helpful with a couple of problems. We were able to have our small dog with us which is what we required. Property also has large garden.

Nice being on working farm with also horses in residence. we were blessed with fabulous weather.

We would definitely recommend. Cottage could do with a bit of TLC if being picky.

Thanks to owners for being helpful in our position of waiting for new bungalow to be finished and allowing 3 weeks to become 6.

Charming cottage and a perfect base to explore Norfolk

  • 5 of 5

We had a brief weekend stay in this lovely cottage. Facilities just as described and very convenient. Generous provisions provided when we arrived and lovely fresh flowers on the table. Secure enclosure allows canine visitors freedom to wander. It was the perfect base for our whirlwind visit to this beautiful part of England. . . .And we had a glimpse of the resident Barn Owl - magic!!

Many thanks

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.
