“Perfect holiday cottage”

We truly enjoyed our stay at Lavender Cottage.
This was our first self catering holiday in North Norfolk and everything was perfect. It is set back from the road and is very quiet and peaceful. The beds are so comfortable, you are guaranteed a good nights sleep. This cottage is ideal for a small family and is in such a lovely village, everyone is so friendly. We particularly enjoyed visiting 'Picnic Fayre', which is a short stroll from the cottage and sells everything from fresh fruit and veg to gorgeous pies and pasties.

“Excellent Value”

Firstly, booking through Trip Advisor is a very efficient process. Cottage is great value and very well appointed. The only warning is I am not sure that it is for four adults. It is small, and for a couple is absolutely ideal. Very quiet location, set back off the street. Great walks in the area and would have no hesitation in booking again

“Gorgeous little cottage in a quaint Loke”

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful part of the UK. We were looking for a traditional cottage with a wood burner stove which was cosy and comfortable.

The cottage is good for two and would also suit a small family. It has lovely comfy beds, a kingsize in the double and full size singles. It has adequate storage in handmade cupboards and drawers. The living room has seating for four and is spacious for the size of the cottage. It has a wing back chair which is a lovely touch. The wood burning stove was great and the cottage had good eletric heating. There was a good stock of dvd's, books and unlimted wifi. The tv is large and has freesat.

The kitchen was compact - but well designed. The most spacious fridge freezer and really well equipped cupboards including a rolling pin and scales. It had a great induction hob which is a treat for cooking. It is also the thoroughfare but for a holiday you can get around that. It had a dishwasher which was useful. It also had thermos flasks for taking out hot chocolate onto the marshes which would be great for birders or those with kids.

There is not much outside space but they have made the best of it. There is a bbq and table and chairs for outside eating. The yard is enclosed with willow shading for privacy and would imagine the gardens it looks out on are nice in summer. The loke is shared with 4 other cottages - with a nice path down the middle. As there is a house in front you hear nothing from the road. It was good the cottage is pet free for those that are allergic.

The road leads staright to a path which takes you to the stoney beach which was great for early evening walks and we even saw some seals. We hope the storms in December did not harm it too much.

We had a great time in this cosy and comfortable cottage and hope to be back next year.
