“Wonderful week!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My husband, daughter, son in law, baby granddaughter and I stayed here for a week, complete with our Yorkshire Terrier - Bailey. We arrived to a fantastic welcome pack and a lovely warm welcome from Pia the owner. Everything was explained to us clearly and we were left to settle in. Ian, Pia's husband then arrived with fresh milk, bread and butter - again complete with a genuinely warm welcome. the cottage was very tastefully decorated and very well equipped. There was literally nothing that we needed all week that wasn't provided in this cottage! The garden is worth a special mention. It was completely safe for our small dog to run around in, being completely enclosed. It was also lovely for our baby granddaughter to sit and play in the shade of the trees. We had some lovely days out - walked round the nearly country park, went to Cromer (beautiful), hired a boat at Wroxham, visited Norwich - amazing cathedral- the free guided tour was excellent, the shops were superb and the castle was really interesting and deserved much more time than we had allowed. We took a Red Bus Tour on our first full day, which was well worth doing, so we got our bearings. It was always a pleasure to return to the cottage and its comforts. We stayed in The Stable, which allows dogs, as does The Barn, although I think the other two cottages don't. There is a lovely play area for the children, containing swings, slide, Wendy house, and a covered sand pit. Another large communal garden is ideal for family games such as badminton or tennis. The washer is free to use, although the tumbler costs £1 - entirely fair. There are shelves full of games, books and DVDs to borrow and use free of charge. Local pub was delightful- three minutes walk away. We ordered a take away from there on our last night and they were delicious. In all, a really fantastic holiday in a beautiful cottage. We all loved the chance to spend a week relaxing together, Bailey loved it too!!!!

“A little gem in Norfolk”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

What a lovely place to spend a few peaceful days.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a peaceful and tranquil place to stay in the countryside so booked up the Stable for a couple of nights during the easter holiday.

What a fantastic little place. The Stable was the perfect size for the three of us (we have a little Chihuahua). We felt very welcome, with a basket of goodies and some treats for the dog waiting for us on arrival.

We spent the days exploring the beautiful countryside surrounding the cottage, using information kindly left in the cottage, and the nights barbecuing away in the garden. We were very lucky with the weather, but there is a large range of games, books, and DVDs if it pours with rain!

The place is also great for families (playground with slides) and for dogs (gardens are all attractively fenced and any gaps covered with chicken wire - so inescapable even for the smallest and craftiest of dogs!) and there is ample parking.

Pia and Ian were very kind and were on hand if we had any questions but were not intrusive at all.

This place was a little gem that we found - and for such a great price. Would definitely go back and have recommended to a number of people.

Thank you for our stay from all of us!

“Like being home, but without a care in the world”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

We took a chance on Oxnead House for our first overseas trip to visit a friend in Norwich, and we were incredibly lucky. The grounds and accommodations were superb. Ian and Pia made you feel like a true guest and available for advice or help without being in the way either, which was perfect for us. They've done wonderful work, keeping the character of the farm, but providing all the modern amenities to make you feel like you're in a first class hotel. My wife and five year old son were equally impressed with it. Great place to travel with a family and feel totally at ease. There is a village and nice pub within easy walking distance, and if you range just a bit further you can enjoy the Norfolk countryside, or Norwich proper. It's close to a lot, but if you close your eyes, you feel like you're away from everything. We couldn't imagine a better stay than the one we had here. Truly perfect.

“Fourth stay in Utopia and we will be back!!”

We have stayed at Oxnead House four times over the last 18 months. We have been by ourselves (family of four,) with my sister's family and also with our parents. Each stay has been amazing as from the moment we arrive, with the welcome we receive along with the wonderful cottages, we have the most relaxing holiday imaginable!
We always do our shopping online, but get the meat from Orchard Farm shop as it provides the most amazing quality and taste, especially the bacon!
We have experienced each cottage and each one is as wonderful as the next. They all have their own private gardens which is great as well as use of the communal garden with the climbing frame and space for football!
The location of Oxnead couldn't be any better, 10 minutes drive to the Riverside at Norwich where Carrow Road is as well as a huge Morrisons and lots of eateries and things to do. Access to the Norfolk Broads and all things boats are either way on the road out of Rockland St Mary. The pub, the New Inn is 3 minutes walk down the road and serves fab food and caters for children.
The secret to Oxnead is the owners Pia and Ian, as they want to ensure that you have the holiday that you had hoped for and more!! They are Oxnead and as such, amazing! Thank you and see you as soon as we can manage!

There are three other cottages on this delightful piece of Norfolk. We have just stayed in the Dairy. It was warm comfortable and well equipped. Close to Norwich and the coast. A pub within walking distance with great food and a small shop/post office. Good value for money.
