“Superb country cottage - First Class +++ - Simply the best time”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This holiday cottage is superb. It is spotlessly clean, very well equipped with good quality fittings. Everything you could want for and more - the hosts have thought of practically everything. The bed is extremely comfortable, I slept 8+ hours each night. Plenty of room for clothes. Kitchen well equipped and modern. Although the weather turned freezing cold the cottage was warm. Outside the patio doors is a large decking area overlooking fields and those big skies Norfolk is so well known for. And two buzzards every day, hares, red legged partridge, pheasant and all manner of garden birds right outside the door. Complete peace and quiet with huge dark skies just bursting with stars. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. I couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough. The hosts were very welcoming and information provided at the cottage about the local area was ample, especially for local eateries. I had simply the best time.

“The nicest holiday home we've ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Just spent a fabulous, quiet, relaxing winter break at Anvil Cottage with my husband and crazy cocker spaniel Holly. The cottage is squeaky clean, comfortable and the nicest place I've stayed in, and we've stayed in lots of rental properties around the world. The cottage is very well equipped, everything new, immaculately clean, a generous welcome pack & every amenity you could wish for is provided. Great bed and bedding too. The owner Tanya, has thought of everything and along with her fabulous mother Felicity, offer a great welcome and as much help and information you need to enjoy a great holiday in this brilliant location, 10 minutes from Norwich, 20 or so to beaches, the Norfolk Broads and plenty of nice restaurants and pubs on the doorstep.

Practically speaking, this was ideal for us and a dog in a very wet week in November, eg extra towels were provided to put on the floor of the entrance hall for the dog and the cottage was really cosy and warm with adjustable heating, in our experience many rental properties can be dark, dank and chilly in winter - quite the opposite here, south facing, bright and sunny with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Lovely safe enclosed decked patio at the rear for Holly to sniff around in and peer out at the wildlife.

We really appreciated all the help and kindness from Felicity and Tanya and very much hope to return sometime soon, hopefully with family staying in the 2 adjacent cottages too.

Liked best: Immaculately clean, comfy bed, exceeded expectations in every way!
Liked least: The only possible improvement we could think of would be the addition of a heated towel rail in the bathroom, everything else is great.
