There is nothing welcoming about this property on arrival needs a lot of work, Bathroom not good needs updating, TV too high to watch sat on sofa, Sofa too large for property. On the plus side bedrooms good size and plenty of storage space, stairs a killer not good for young children.

Reviewed by Kerri 13th September 2019

There is a really strong smell of damp as soon as you walk through the front door, so that is all you can smell in the downstairs area. It made us want to stay out on a night time instead of maybe getting a takeaway and watching some TV. Bought a few air fresheners but all you could smell was damp. It is set in a great location though.

Lovely little cottage but stairs are extremely steep, not suitable for elderly or children, but cant remember reading this in description. Also it read as having a little patio showing a table and chairs in a photo but this was at the front of property next to bins in a car park so not suitable for sitting out in the evening with a glass of wine, sRead moreo was a bit disappointing. The attic bedroom had very low ceiling which was not great for reading in bed.Location was perfect and cottage clean. Bath Hide

The cottage requires updating and the cooker needs a good clean.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
