About Liz Curtis
We love north Norfolk and have holidayed here since we were children, we finally bought Close Cottage in 2007. We completely gutted and refurbished it into a cosy, clutter-free family bolt hole. We have 2 daughters and 2 Labradors. Peter is golf mad, so it's perfect for him; the girls love to sail and kayak and lie in bed watching the tide come in before walking across the road! We also bring our horses to ride on Holkham beach. We installed pet friendly hard floors throughout. The en suite eliminates holiday bathroom queues! Our cottage in Holme is more traditional in style, with softer furnishing (carpets) and no pets. Many visitors return year after year, they love the level of comfort and equipment provided which makes for a really relaxing holiday. We look forward to welcoming you.
Liz Curtis purchased this Cottage in 2009

Lovely clean cosy cottage.
Cottage in a lovely quite village, but not too far from Hunstation. Cottage clean and beds lovely and comfortable. Such a shame we didn't do any of the walks, cos of the snow. Nice place to get away from it all.

Ideal comfortable retreat
An ideal place for comfort, peace and very good facilities . Liz, the owner, was most helpful in booking and in her friendly dealings with us throughout.
The beds were comfortable,,shower rooms immaculate and all cooking appliances worked well.. The location was also very good and convenient for access to all parts of Norfolk..
The cottage is very suitable for couples but would work well for four people, being tastefully and imaginatively eequipped.
A thousand thanks for taking the trouble to write this delightful review! Your enjoyment is the purpose of our holiday cottages and our service - plus it makes our efforts and those of our Housekeeper wholly worthwhile! I am so pleased that you were happy with everything. Thank you for booking with us and we look forward to welcoming you again.
we enjoyed our stay at Barnwell Cottage; we had been before so we knew what to expect. The place was clean and well cared for, comfortable and warm. We think there should be a little more equipment in the kitchen; we tend to eat 'at home' rather than go out for meals and the number of saucepans just enabled us to get by but it would be more difficult to feed 4 adults. I guess the assumption is people will go out to eat while they are on holiday; as I say, we tend to have meals as we would at home and that is a drawback. An extra decently sized saucepan would be useful but that is our only criticism as the rest of the cottage was fine.
There was a dvd player but we couldn't find the instructions on how to use it; there was a mention of it in the house folder but we couldn't find anything though we searched. being technology illiyerate we had to settle for the tv in the evenings - which was fine.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review! We were delighted to welcome you back and you are one of many repeat guests booking their holidays with us. In actual fact the kitchen equipment at Barnwell already exceeds the requirement stipulated for a 4 star Visit Britain rating, which the cottage has - the very full glassware and crockery cupboard reflects this! Your point about 'eating in' has been acted on this week and your suggestion implemented - there are now an additional 3 saucepans in the kitchen ready to use! With regards the DVD, I wish we had known this whilst you were there! We always ask guests in the welcome letter sent out before guests arrive - and again on the welcome notice board - to contact us during their stay if there is anything out of place. However I am aware that the mobile signal at the coast is not always that good so we will probably ask our housekeeper to pop in to check that everything IS indeed OK! (The instructions have now been secured to the DVD for easy operation)
Thank you again for your kind comments about Barnwell -we look forward to welcoming you back next time.
