If you're looking for a family and dog friendly holiday cottage in Norfolk, I cannot recommend The Bee's Knees highly enough. This is a beautiful cottage set in gorgeous grounds, with your own dedicated play area for children, duck pond and excellent BBQ facilities.
We were given the warmest of welcomes by Dalene and Alex, for whom nothing is too much trouble and who have the highest attention to detail. Our cottage welcome was completed with with a selection of homemade goodies, even treats for our grateful pooch. Our dog also enjoyed her stay, with Dalene and Alex taking care of her for a day while we visited the local zoo.
You need not worry about a rainy day, with the amazing section of children's toys and DVDs, not forgetting the action packed toy box.
We can't wait to return and create even more fond memories.
We have had such a great time here - Dalene & Alex made our time extra special in such a well equipped pleasant environment with BBQ hut and places to eat, drink and relax around the garden, super sunny week we had breakfast - lunch and evening meals outside with the ducks, cats and dogs ! the house we stayed in with Good friends is spacious, clean, well laid out with quality appliances and fabulous comfy beds in both rooms made up as doubles.
Booked by the mum for a family wedding, nice cottage, a very quiet and relaxing place away from city life. Owners are friendly and welcoming too. If you like being close to nature, this is the place for you.
Stayed with husband, daughter, son-in-law and 6 month old grandson. Very happy with the cottage and our hosts, Dalene and Alex. The welcome pack was superb, freshly baked scones, jam and clotted cream, prosecco, cheese, ham - the list goes on! We also loved the location and the cottage was very pretty and all the extras were so well thought out. The garden area is perfect with gazebos,chickens, geese and lovely areas to sit. There is also an indoor barbecue structure with firepit but due to the hot weather we used the outdoor barbecue also attended by the cat, Oliver!
Returning daily from our travels we watched some of the DVDs. Thank your for our holiday. We have already recommended you.
Sorry for delay Dalene and Alex, what a lovely cottage, not a thing you could think of that wasn't provided for comfort and pleasure. The welcome pack was so extensive and so many other food and drink products over and beyond we have ever experienced before.our granddaughters loved the play area and enjoyed making up their games at some point most days.The wildlife and gardens were a delight and never seen so many ducklings together before! Thank you for putting up with our dog and sorry she barked so much,glad she enjoyed being with your dog's and cats.plenty of things to do in the area, the zoo at Banham particularly good.lots of good places to eat out too, altogether can highly recommend this cottage and garden.
A lovely week, ideal base, stunning weather, complimented by the friendly owners ‘Lady’ Magdalene (aka Dalene) & Alex.
Set in the heart of the countryside & beautifully decorated too.
Extremely dog friendly.
Scrumptious home made scones, strawberry & pimms jam, plus lots more in our welcome pack.
We have just returned home from our second stay at Olde Farm. We stayed in The Bees Knees this time.
The location is just so peaceful and perfect. There were some new duck and chicken additions, so special to see right on your doorstep.
We had lovely welcome treats which included eggs from the chickens, local ham and chocolates which is always a lovely touch. Even treats for our dogs and feed for the ducks.
Immaculately clean, you don’t feel like you have to clean when you get there like you do when you stay away in a self catering property. It is spotless which is great and means you can relax from the moment you arrive.
The cottage has everything you need from WiFi to Amazon Alexa to every cooking appliance you can think of! They have not missed a thing.
Alex and Dalene are the most perfect hosts you could ever ask for on holiday and they make you feel so welcome.
A great place to go if you want to get away, relax and enjoy your environment, especially if you have a dog, this cottage has an enclosed courtyard which is really useful and lovely to sit out in.
Thanks again for another wonderful stay. We will see you again soon!
We highly highly recommend Olde Farm to anyone, you will not be disappointed! :-)
