Excellent Holiday Let
This is an excellent example of a holiday let. It is comfortable, cosy, light and aire. It has everything you need for a home from home experience. There is an excellent welcome pack and loads of little extras that you need on holiday, but have loads left when you return, such as pepper and salt, dish and clothes washing tabs and toilet rolls. The only thing it didn't seem to have was kitchen roll, but then who wants to cook on holiday. To top this all off it has a lovely garden with sun house and two areas with tavl chairs and parasol, so you can move around the garden with the sun. An added bonus for Sheringham is the fact it has parking out the front of the property. Definitely worth a visit.

Fantastic weekend break
We had a lovely stay at Arcadia Cottage (2 adults and 2 children). The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The cottage is 5 minutes walk to the high street, well located for pubs, restaurants, shops, arcades and the beach. We would stay at the cottage again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to family and friends. Thank you for having us.

Great location, nice place but with some small improvements could be fab
Upon arrival, Arcadia Cottage gives a first impression of being a bit neglected. The front door looks shabby, the latch & bolt on the gate are rusty, the washing rotary was covered in cobwebs with pegs left on it, and the summer house was unloved & dirty. But actually the cottage is nice. The kitchen & bathroom are recently refurbished; the living room is really comfy and very sunny, plus there's a good sized table in the dining room. The garden is full of flowering plants, with different seating options including and a new table & chair set which gets the morning sunshine. The main bedrooms are a decent size, although there are only hooks in the double twin for hanging, so bring a few coat hangers with you. There were plenty of fresh towels but only one tea towel and no additional blankets or throws for the beds, which only had thin duvets. The first night I was cold, but actually the heating is easy to use. We were missing handwash & washing up liquid but a quick text to the housekeeper and she brought some over, which was excellent as it was Sunday. The owners reply quickly to messages too This cottage is promoted as luxury and our expectations were raised but there are lots of small things, which stop it being fantastic. For example, the kitchen equipment is a bit mix and match (not much cutlery and no sieve or baking tray). The microwave is old & has a dial so you can't enter the precise cooking time. There's an extinguisher but no torch in case of power failure, and no night-light on the landing for stair safety The audio visual equipment is old school - the TV isn't smart so there's no iplayer and you can't log into your Netflix account. There's no docking station, no Bluetooth radio or speakers to connect your device to for music.The DVD doesn't play Blu-ray discs & only one scart lead is provided so you have to remove it from the Freesat Sky box & plug it into the DVD to make it work (then move it back). My biggest disappointment was the bedroom - I found the twin bed very noisy as it squeaked and groaned every time I rolled over, and it was really uncomfortable. The curtains were unlined, and the bedding a bit old (the sheet had a iron burn mark on it). We also found instructions missing for the oven and washing machine. To make the oven work you must press the M button (thank you YouTube). Be aware there are no maps or guides in the property & no welcome pack is provided for to Covid. The bin schedule is from 2019 but if you enter the postcode in the Council's website you can see the latest schedule. We found it very difficult to get the wheelie bin over the drain hole & through the gate to the front of the cottage as it was full when we arrived and therefore very heavy. In summary, Arcadia Cottage is in an excellent location and less than 5 minutes walk to the beach and shops. We have had a nice stay and the living room was lovely. But we felt it could very easily have been made fantastic with a little TLC here and there, and a bit of updating, especially of bedding, curtains, technology & equipment.

Full Revamped and Perfect!!!
What a fantastic cottage in a lovely location. The owner has fully revamped the place with a new kitchen and bathroom which is superbly functional and well thought out. The cottage has everything you need even the finer details has been thought of. It’s a really comfortable place to stay. Our booking process was swift and easy. The location is superb five mins slow walk from the seafront and town centre. Don’t be worried about previous reviews before the work was carried out this place is top dollar now!! We will be booking again later in the year!!!
