Guestbook comments from the owner

"Me and my family have just got back from staying here and we already want to go back!! Its was amazing, the grounds are outstanding and gave a safe place for the children to explore whilst we enjoyed the amazing views of the lake. Inside the house left me speechless when I walked in. It is decorated to the highest standards and looks modern, elegant and chic whilst still being homely and comfortable. From the moment you walk in you can see that no expense has been spared when selecting everything from bed linen and towels to the TV's and decor. I will be bringing my family here every year. Thank you for an amazing holiday"

"Great welcome on arrival, We were shown around the house to make sure we knew how everything worked. We were very impressed by the welcome basket on arrival. The decor and furnishings are top class, equivalent to a five star hotel!The children and ourselves had a wonderful time playing rounders on the front lawn. Kids loved collecting eggs from the chickens"

Fantastic house, idyllic setting and excellent ser

  • 5 of 5

Three generations had an amazing weekend in this stunning house in the middle of the Norfolk countryside. Masses of space in huge house and huge garden. The children loved watching the ducklings, swans, geese on the lake and of course the chickens. The house was extremely well equipped and beautifully kept. Great location for visiting High Lodge Forest Centre, Wells next Sea, Sealife Centre at Hunstanton. Excellent service from Avril during booking process and Rebecca at the house. We really didn't want to leave!

Amazing tranquility, beautiful location, 1st Class

  • 5 of 5

Me and family stayed at Becks house and had the most amazing time, the house is very spacious, our children had the best nights sleep, luxurious bed linen, en-suite bathrooms and fantastic views no matter which room you see relaxing in. The kitchen breakfast room is vast, great internet access for everyone, which I am using to write this review.

Forget staying in a hotel, this place tops them all. Highly recommended.

This is a perfect retreat for a short or long stay. My family and I loved the house and its surroundings and we will definitely be going back. The house itself is very clean and very well maintained with a beautiful Kitchen. The local area is also a plus with lovely restaurants and shops.

Beautiful House with stunning views!!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this beautiful house justice! The kitchen is HUGE and the bedrooms are very spacious and decorated to the highest standard. The grounds were stunning, there is SO much space for the children to play safely.

When I enquired about Becks House Grant was really quick in getting back to me, really efficient and professional with getting my booking organized.

I recommend Becks House 100%, it is the best house we have ever rented, we have booked already for next year and we cannot wait!!!!!

Grandad Field's 90th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated Grandad's 90th with 3 generations in this fantastic house. The house, it's grounds and the location could not have been better. The communication from Grant and Helen was so prompt and organised that the whole event was made so much easier to coordinate. The house and it's facilities are second to none ......Thankyou ..... Grandad is looking forward to next year !!
