Really good quality accommodation, great location; a few minor tweaks and it'll be perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cottage, thanks Anwar & Sue. A couple of minor suggestions: (1) A microwave would make a big difference to people with young families and (2) Along the same vein, a high chair and travel cot would have been really helpful to us. Other than these small tweaks, it was fabulous overall.

Wonderful Once Again

  • 4 of 5

Our third stay at Windswept Cottage which provides the perfect base and space for a wonderful Norfolk break. Lots of room for the family and the children love the Garden room which they took over once again as their own. Perfectly placed for Brancaster beach, the Ship Inn and the Coast Hopper bus. An ideal location for exploring the coast, walks, places of interest, pubs and restaurants. Thanks again Anwar and Sue. The Shearman-Matthews family.

Windswept Cottage was just perfect for our family 'Mother's & Daughter's annual weekend in Norfolk!

Great for all ages - our party were aged between 20 months and 71years old!

Modern Spotless, and beautifully decorated with everything needed for a very comfortable stay!

Loved the 'Garden Room where our little one's could spend rest time with their favourite DVD's.

The outside area was also furnished to a high standard and as the weather was fine and sunny we spent time relaxing there with a glass of wine at the end of a busy day!

Perfect for jumping on the Bus - Coast Hoppa - saving the use of cars and the children thought this was a great novelty!

Perfect for us we will most certainly be visiting again!! A cot and high chair would have been handy!

Another Wonderful Break

  • 4 of 5

Our second visit to Windswept Cottage as we loved it so much last year! Once again the cottage was sparkling clean, great amenities and perfectly located for all the things we enjoy whilst in Norfolk. The children made the garden room their own again, tucking themselves away with a DVD to enjoy some adult-free time. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and ensures the booking process is simple and straight forward. A big thank you to Patrick, on hand locally to sort out a TV aerial hiccup, restoring harmony within the household. A wonderful base in North Norfolk - highly recommended.

Fabulous Find

  • 4 of 5

Our first time using Owners Direct & we hit the jackpot. Our whole family enjoyed a fabulous time at Windswept Cottage. Beautifully furnished, sparklingly clean & well equipped accommodation, excellent location only a few minutes from the Ship Inn & a short walk to Brancaster beach along with excellent weather made for a wonderful holiday. The younger members of our group loved the "garden" room which meant they could enjoy some "adult-free" time. The owner couldn't have been more helpful when booking. Highly recommended.
