“Fabulous country cottage.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Absolutely fabulous cottage. The welcome basket, chocolates on our towels, lavender sprigs on the pillows, milk in the fridge and flowers on the table just makes you feel so welcome. The cottage is so well equipped, the owners really have thought of everything. The local pub in the village is very friendly and the food is wonderful. Sea palling is very close by, this is a beautiful beach. Hickling is a good base. Everywhere we wanted to visit was within easy reach. I would certainly recommend this cottage.

“A cosy, welcoming cottage, well equipped and spotlessly clean”
Reviewed February 29, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

My husband and I and our Labrador, Paddy, have stayed at Golebys twice in the last year and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our most recent visit was during the cold snap, it snowed overnight and got down to -10 degrees but the cottage was so snug and cosy that we were warmer than we would've been at home! The underfloor heating and the woodburning stove are very efficient.

After a long drive to get to Norfolk from our home near Chichester it was lovely to find a welcome basket containing chocolates, biscuits, various teas and coffee, plus milk in the fridge, flowers on the table and a dish of treats for Paddy. Very thoughtful touches from Annie and Sean, and much appreciated.

The cottage is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The fast and free wi-fi access was a bonus too. The coast and the Broads are only a short drive away and there are plenty of wonderful walks in the area. We'll be back again before long!
