Gorgeous cosy winter rent

  • 5 of 5

Our party of five spent an enjoyable four days in this cottage over New Year. The cottage has been extended considerably and is therefore spacious. It is attractively decorated to boot. The owners had thoughfully put up some Christmas decorations, including a real tree, and we had a good supply of logs for the fire (though we never did find the honesty box in which we were to put our £3 for each bucket of logs, so we left our money on the mantlepiece). There's a comfortable conservatory containing sofas and a selection of novels, although it was far too cold at this time of year to make use of it as it is unheated. The kitchen was splendid, with a 6 ring/double oven cooker, dishwasher, generous fridge-freezer and lots of implements (though, bizarrely, no potato peeler). A welcome basket containing various goodies and a bottle of Prosecco, as well as milk and butter in the fridge, was a kind touch. On the downside, the two single beds upstairs were rather lumpy, being old spring mattresses: perhaps fine if you're a kid, but if you're entering your 6th decade, a sure way to have backache next day. Having said that, the duvets were the cosiest I have slept under in a long while. The situation of the cottage is lovely, with a boardwalk though the reed beds (its a Site of Special Scientific Interest) behind the cottage, and deer apparently may wander into the garden at dusk. There are loads of guide books on the area in the cottage, and we followed the owners' recommendations to try the nearby Vernon Arms for eating. We had a lovely sandwich lunch seated in front of a roaring fire, but this place is very busy with locals and tourists alike: we were unable to get a dinner booking for the following evening, so I'd advise making a booking as soon as you arrive. All in all, this cottage was a real find and I'll certainly be visiting again.

Fantastic weekend

  • 5 of 5

3 adults, 2 children and 1 dog have just enjoyed a fantastic weekend in Heath Cottage. The cottage is well located for many local attractions including the beautiful coastal towns. The cottage itself adjoins a local nature reserve. Internally the character and decor could not be any better and the cottage is fantastically well equipped with kitchen equipment, books and games.

We really hope to go back again....

Stew, Jane and family (and dog)

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic holiday cottage, spotlessly clean with everything you could need. Our group included a 92 year old, so easy access was important and he was able to move about freely. Our 3 year old enjoyed the garden play equipment and the daily trips around the nature reserve - as did the dog! One of the hi-lights was the muntjak that appeared in the garden most evenings. Terrific meal at the Vernon Arms and a really great Sunday lunch at the Two Lifeboats - Sherringham. The train from Aylsham to Wroxham is well worth the trip. Slightly further afield we visited Thursford which was much appreciated by the older members of our group. We intend to book again next year!!!

"Enchanting Location & Cottage"

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults and a dog), had a wonderful, relaxing holiday at Heath Cottage in the beautiful, peaceful village of Lower Southrepps. We felt so privileged to be the first guests ever to stay in this spotlessly clean, and beautifully refurbished, spacious, well equipped property. The surrounding garden and the peaceful views to the boarded walkway through the protected wildlife common were the perfect setting for a relaxing outdoor meal of fresh Overstrand crab with salad, or just daydreaming with a glass of chilled Sancerre. As birdwatchers, we were treated to (very) close views of Reed Buntings, Reed Warblers, Sedge Warblers, Chiff Chaffs, Marsh Tits and Woodpeckers, just to name a few. Wonderful, long, local and coastal walks, together with meals at the Vernon Arms, Southrepps, The Ship in Overstrand, fish and chips at Walcott and a wonderful day at East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens to name a few, left us relaxed, rested and ready for the everyday world again! We are all Norfolk born and bred and congratulate the owners on providing such a brilliant Norfolk cottage in such a beautiful Norfolk setting. A truly fantastic advert for our wonderful County. Thank you.
