Thank you...This was a lovely house to stay in. Near shops and 5 mins walk to beach or town. 15 mins walk to amazonite zoo. This house had everything and more. Treats left for the children and the adults so no need to shop as soon as we landed. We were lucky as the weather was hot and sunny all week. We had a17 month old with us and a child safety gate to the kitchen would have been useful but as argos just up the road we bought one .we had lovely walks on cliff top through woods to the lighthouse and the small park up there was delightful. Caught the bus just around the corner into sherringham lovely place then took the steam train to hogwarts....... I mean holt. Watch times though as station in Holt is 1.5 miles from town so you need to allow time to get back...There is a lovely old fashioned bus that takes you there though. All in all a lovely time had.....great friendly peopLe down there as well

Thankyou for a lovely holiday. The house itself was lovely with many little extra touches by the owners including a very nice welcome pack. Everything you needed was catered for. Kids loved the attic room where they had there own television. The house is located with everything on the doorstep which meant we hardly used the car. We recommend this holiday to all and hopefully will be back. 😊😊😊😊

Excellent Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage that was clean, well-maintained and very well stocked with everything we could need. An ideal location as everything was in walking distance - the beach, entertainment, restaurants, shops etc. - and with Morrisons almost on the doorstep. Other amenities also close by such as the Amazona Zoo, great for big kids and little kids alike! We had a lovely week.

John & Sandra Davey & family.

Great holiday home, great location. Great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We know the Cromer area well and knew that the location of the property would be perfect for our needs. Very handy for the supermarket, shops and beach just a very short walk away - ideal. We found Chesterfield Villa to be very well furnished, decorated and equipped. We lacked for nothing and the welcome pack containing all sorts of good stuff was appreciated and enjoyed. We knew there was parking for only a single car at the property but we actually had two vehicles in our party. We were always able to find on street free parking for the other car without difficulty. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Chesterfield Villas.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sorry had such a busy Summer just got round to reviewing such a wonderful cottage. The cottage was situated in a brilliant location, it was very clean and had some lovely touches like the scrumptious basket of goodies which we all enjoyed. The basket of bread etc was a lovely suprise too. It's such a cosy place and we felt really pleased when the weather was good to us. We also recommend the No 1 fish shop it's worth standing in the queue. Thank you so much Rob and Audrey for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage we have recommended it to all our friends and hope to stay again. Karen, Paul and Mum.

Fantastic Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from a wonderful week in Cromer. Chesterfield Villas was a perfect location for all amenities and for a great family stay. The house was spacious and beautifully decorated. Rob and Audrey have been very helpful with everything and we were made to feel very welcome. The baskets of croissants and muffins were a lovely welcome! We would definitely recommend and look forward to going back next year. Adam and Cathy Cook.
