About Alfred Levy
We the owners are Sue and Alfred and we acquired Meadow Brown Cottage in 2005 as a holiday home for ourselves and our family. We love going to East Ruston and we find there is a large demand from holidaymakers for cottages like ours. So we decided that by letting it out to others, we can share our enjoyment of the great facilities and the local environment with others. We are now both retired, and have enjoyed thoroughly refurbishing the cottage to our own high standards. Whilst we use our leisure time to visit many new places we always look forward to our own stays at Meadow Brown every few months as it is so relaxing. Sue was born in Norfolk and loves returning to her old haunts there
Alfred Levy purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Alfred Levy chose East Ruston
We bought Meadow Brown in 2005- having spent a long time searching for something suitable for ourselves. Most places we saw were pleasant but did not have a special feel about them. What attracted us, then, and still does now, is as soon as you walk in the front door and go into the lounge, the view is stunning and you immediately feel relaxed . Car parking is right by the cottage but off the road, The Lighthouse Inn at Walcott is a very pleasant pub serving good food The cottage is within 15 minutes of Wroxham, Stalham, Potter Heigham, Hickling Broad, Walcott; Sea Palling and Barton Broad. 30 minutes away are the city of Norwich; Great Yarmouth; Cromer and Winterton Beach. Stalham is a small town with a good branch of Tesco and other shops of interest
What makes this Cottage unique
There is a fishing lake within the grounds which attracted many specialist anglers in the past. Some otters appeared recently, which has reduced the number of large fish. The management committee are constantly reviewing the situation with the intention of eventually restocking the lake and clearing it of all weeds etc.. In the meantime families can still enjoy some recreational fishing. It is intended to make the area into one of natural beauty attracting wild life and birds. There are 2 blocks of cottages on the site, and Meadow Brown is on the end of one of the terraces and is the largest cottage and has 3 bedrooms and a separate kitchen. It is extremely well equipped with all mod cons including dishwasher. Our son and his family stay each Summer and enjoy all the local beaches and facilities.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Recently built with a nice 'cottage' feel
Comfortable, quiet and relaxing. Two Tv's was quite a boon. Frequently saw Moorhens, a few ducks and one day a flotilla of swans and cygnets cruised by. A thoroughly lovely week.
Thanks for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at our cottage.
We regard it as our own home from home!
Excellent cottage with great fishing facilities
House had all we needed and was very comfortable and welcoming. Fishing was excellent at St George's Fishery and the location is brilliant for visiting the area.
Loved all the artwork by Sue. Thank you for the wine. A real home environment.Would highly recommend this property to couples and families alike.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your break at our holiday home.
We try very hard to keep the cottage equipped and maintained ,as we regard it as our own home from home.
You were certainly very fortunate with the weather.
We hope you will recommend the cottage to your friends and visit us perhaps again

Superbly well equipped cottage in peaceful surroundings
The cottage comfortably accommodated five adults and we found every cooking utensil we needed, including a juice press.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Meadow Brown Cottage and glad you found the juice press - would you let us know, if you get a spare moment, where that piece of equipment is?
Relaxing, good location
Good sized little cottage, well situated for lots of days out. Utterly tranquil location, with the fishing lake in the back garden. Clean, tidy and well equipped. No WiFi or mobile connection but this was well advertised and a plus in my eyes! TV, DVD player and lots of games and jigsaws meant the internet was not missed. Agree with another reviewer that an information booklet on how to work heating would have been useful, though once we had found the temperature control it was straightforward. Also the kettle was full of limescale. But these are tiny tiny things and we thoroughly recommend the property.
Thanks for your valuable comments.
We will either replace the kettle or get rid of the lime scale ,as well as prepare and leave a folder explaining how the programmer thermostat works. We are due to go on a maintenance visit in the next couple of weeks.
Our aim is for our holidaymaker
tenants to enjoy the property as much as we do. We regard Meadow Brown Cottage as our own second home.
Very good condition. Well furnished. Beautifully appointed
Very comfortable property in good condition. Kitchen is well equipped. Beautiful views of lake at bottom of garden. Was expecting a folder with some information on things like how to controller the boiler but couldn't find that info on site. The only criticism.
We spoke on the phone and explained how the heating works.
We will add a folder with details on how to use the programmer and thermostat.. However, it is ptetty straightforward.
Thanks for the review.
