Grooms Cottage is a charming single storey property built of traditional carr stone and brick set in its own extensive grounds, which include a well stocked fishing lake. The property offers comfortable and spacious accommodation, with the added advantage of a bathroom for each bedroom (you may want to arrive early to ensure you bag the palatial main bedroom too!). The grounds and cottage together have a feel of a mini country estate complete with beautiful views across the parkland from almost every room. Set well away from any roads, this is a perfect place for children and dogs to explore, and also for those who have had to sacrifice fishing for family - here you can have both as exclusive trout fishing on the lake (plus use of rowing boat) is included in the let.

We have stayed at Grooms Cottage again, 29th September to 6th October. This is such a lovely property, stylish and homely and also well equipped. We stayed here as this property is ’dog frendly’, critical for us and our friends who stay and bring their dog. The setting is lovely, with expansive working farm grounds to wonder around, and local walking tracks including Congham forest. The wildlife is abundant with various birds flocking, pheasants and grouse roaming (and running when the dog sees them!) plus rabbits and indeed a hare were a delight. We heard but did not see the owl. The lake in the grounds and its wildlife are also an early morning delight to walk around. We recommend this property!
Had the best New Year ever in the best cottage ever. Felt like home from home with plenty of everything we needed with lots of extra touches too. Very cosy and wonderfully equipped with everything we needed. Thank you we had a brilliant time. Loved the open fire. Will definitely come back.
Large roomy house with comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and beautiful outlook. The lake and rowing boat were the highlight for our girls.
A restful delightful place to stay. Very comfortable and well appointed. Good walks all round and also a good place to sit and watch the swallows skimming over the lawn. Good fishing.
Our second year at Grooms Cottage receiving a very warm welcome from the owners. Although the weather was disappointing we still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We have had a lovely week. Lots of bird watching, good fishing and lovely base for trips out.
The Cottage far exceeded expectations and was a big factor to our holiday enjoyment so much so that none of us wanted to leave.
Lovely cottage and grounds. Lovely to see morning and evening ventures of the barn owl around paddock and pond, and swan and geese on the lake.
Lovely holiday and peaceful surroundings and very comfortable cottage. We have really enjoyed the walks around the cottage.
Other comments from Grooms' visitors' book:"We were in the holiday mood as soon as we walked through the door - how can we not be in such a lovely relaxing place? The kids had a ball and revelled in the outside space. The welcome goodies were fab - we''ll be back"" Lovely relaxing stay - could've done with longer!""Thank you for our stay in your delightful and charming cottage. You presented a challenge in asking if anything is lacking - will be hard pushed to name anything that wasn't available!"" A beautiful cottage. Extremely comfortable and much enjoyed. Thank you"
Beautiful location, ideal place for Xmas, suited all our needs.
We have had a fantastic stay in this beautiful cottage. All good. Really could find nothing missing to fault. I have stayed in many holiday cottages all over Britain, from Cornwall to Northumberland, and have to say that this is the best, - very well equipped, beautiful situation, and all great!!”
