    "Very pleasent cottage in lovely surroundings. "
    "This cottage was just what we needed, quiet and cosy ... well equipped kitchen, powerful shower and a great wood burner. The cottage was cold when we arrived on the 5th of December despite the storage heaters but once we got the wood burner going it was lovely. "
    "This is the second time we have stayed at the old rectory cottage. A warm welcome as always and everything we needed for a cosy relaxing stay."
    "Brilliant little cottage in a quiet location. Ideally placed for exploring the North Norfolk coast and countryside. Friendly owners. Didn't need to use the wood burner during the mild September, the storage heaters were more than adequate."

    Previous guest
    "Easy to find, very quiet & peaceful. We were there on a cold spring weekend and the cottage was cold the first evening as storage heaters not put, but we soon warmed up with the log burner going. We did not realise there was an electric blanket until the last night and would have appreciated knowing that on the first! Otherwise a good base to explore the area. March 2011."
    Previous guest

    Previous guest
    "A great cottage for a quiet break and a chance to look around Norfolk. A visit from the ducks in the evening is just the thing to give a lift after a day walking on the beaches. Handy for visiting Norwich, Sandringham and Cambridge. March 2011."
