Brindles Annex was ideal for us. We were very reassured by the level of cleanliness and for our stay of three days the facilities were adequate. We did enjoy our stay and arrangements with the owner went smoothly.

I enjoyed a comfortable stay at Brindles Annex. My host was very helpful and flexible in my time of arrival. The property itself was spotless and I was very reassured that in the current climate of covid, attention had been paid in maintaining hygiene to a high standard. The property was well situated for getting there and situated only about 10 - Read more15 miles away, about a 20 minutes drive from the sea. All in all it was a great base for a relaxing break. Hide

A lovely little gem set in Fakenham. It was quiet, but less then 10 minutes walk away was the market square. There was a large tescos 5 minutes walk away, but you wouldn't know it where you are. It was central to places to visit, Kings Lynn was only 30 minutes away by car and Pensthorpe Natural Park was 10 minutes in the car, well worth a visit.

I don't want to say too much because I don't want this cottage to become too well known. If it does it will become very popular and we may struggle to find slots available for us to rebook in the future, something we fully intend doing. My apologies to the owners for this selfish attitude because they were really nice and very accommodating. Ok, thRead moree cottage was lovely and well situated for all of the things we had planned and did. Hide

The owner was lovely and very helpful...unfortunately the bed was too small for us and there wasn't a hair dryer. The kitchen was very small which we hadn't picked up on from the photos. None of this can be remedied except the hair dryer. So although the price and location was good sadly we won't be returning.

A comfortable cottage with a well planned accommodation situated in a very quiet location yet convenient for the town. The only slight drawback was the limited kitchen area and the lack of an oven.

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?
