Beautiful cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Out stay at Hillside was just perfect. The cottage is like home from home. We were celebrating a special birthday. With two dogs we didn't want to leave them, so we drove to wells beach. It was stunning for a dog friendly beach. We would recommend this cottage. Not to far from the sea. Ideal location. Catherine was very friendly. And helpful. We will be returning. Thanks Catherine for a most enjoyable short break.

Excellent cottsge

  • 4 of 5

This is a brilliant spacious and clean cottage in a lovely peaceful setting. Well equipped kitchen and generous sized garden which was a great place for 4 children and our dog to play. The BBQ and patio area was a bonus too. There was also a park for the children just a short walk away. The Crown Pub in the villages served delicious food (big portions) and were really good when we all went in (dog included).

I would definitely this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay but with the amenities of Fakenham close by (in Fakenham) and the beach a short drive away (in Wells

Thank you to the owner for a lovely holiday.

Hillside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Hillside cottage was ideal for three generations of our family - grandparents, son and daughter-in-law and two grandchildren aged 12 and 9. Catherine made us very welcome and the cottage was well equipped, warm, spacious and comfortable. We had good dry and sunny weather all week. The fish and chip shop at the next village was useful.As we are all interested in wildlife we had very good outings to Sculthorpe Moor for the Hawk and Owl Trust, Pensthorpe, the sealife centre at Hunstanton and Titchwell the RSPB reserve which has wonderful new hides after the flood devastation of December 2012. We saw the barn owl flying across the meadow and the cottage garden on most days. On quieter days without the young family we visited some the familiar villages of the north coast and some of the lovely old churches and on the way home we went to Castle Acre and Oxburgh Hall. It was a relaxing and yet action packed week. We would love to come again.

We stayed in Hillside Cottage for 8 weeks awaiting property purchase in Hunstanton. Thank you Catherine for our very pleasant stay.

Spacious and comfortably furnished. Cosy in freezing temperatures. The wildlife, (barn owl circling the large field in front of the cottage) and rich agriculture lifts the spirits. Ideally situated for coastal resorts and inland features. Good wifi and plenty of off-road car parking. In all, perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such pleasant comments. This morning there are two barn owls circling the meadow. This is the first time I have ever seen two together. You were excellent tenants and left the cottage in very good order

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Mrs. Joice welcomed myself , my partner and Mum and 2 very big St Bernards .

Great location with walks from the door along country lanes and footpaths. Everything we needed was provided , it was very warm and comfortable . Safe enclosed garden for the dogs . We had nice trips to fakenham and Brancaster .

We enjoyed the cold weather knowing we had such a lovely place to return to after our walks . Very reasonably priced for such a large cottage
