4/5 Good

Quiet holiday.
Property needs a spring clean otherwise it was an excellent cottage stay.

3/5 Okay

good location
Great base for seeing the broads, and the east coast. Would recommend trying Cromer crab lovely. Close to Great Yarmouth, Norwich not too far, Kings Lynn along the coast road but a bit further. Lots of footpaths locally to walk the dog. Pubs were extremely friendly and would bring a bowl of water for the dog. The wind pump at Horsey was worth seeing and the seals at Horsey Gap should not be missed although we were lucky and it was a lovely day. The kitchen was very well equipped. However on the down side the shower was really just a dribble, and there was no adjustment for height or angle. The shower was over the bath, so you had the option of either, however, the bath was both deep and narrow, and therefore very precarious to get in and out of when having a shower, a mat and a grab rail would have been great, and both of these had been requested a number of times in the hand written visitor book, but have been ignored. The bed was hard and the headboard was obviously stained. We took our own towels because the website said that towels were 'available' so we didn't know if this was an additional charge, but if the the towels that were there were anything to go by thank heaven we took our own. The rear garden was absolutely great for our little dog, well enclosed with a fence and gate. Generally a property in a fantastic location, but needs more money spent on it to bring it up to a good respectable standard. Just one last point the website said that toilet roll was included, but we expected more than half a toilet roll !

4/5 Good

Comfortable Cottage But Too close To The Graveyard For My Wife!
A comfortable, reasonably well equipped cottage in a good location for exploring the Broads/East Norfolk, but it is located adjacent to a busy country road and a graveyard, both of which kept my wife awake at night. As the front door opens directly on to the road we used the rear door for entry/exit and kept the front windows closed to keep out exhaust fumes. Kitchen was well equipped although we made little use of it other than for breakfast. Bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds but accessed by a steep staircase, as described in the on-line listing, which would be a challenge for some of my age (and older). Martham is a great location for exploring the Broads on foot or by car and visiting the East Norfolk beaches. It has a couple of shops that stay open 'til late and larger stores are a short drive away. There are several good pubs/restaurants in the area, although the best restaurants were fully booked in advance and the Fisherman's Return in Winterton has gone downhill since we last visited a couple of years ago. The local chippy is OK, with large portions and tasty fish but a tad greasy for our taste - better can be had in Caister-on-Sea. Overall a good place to stay as long as you don't believe in ghosts.

4/5 Good

Great dog walks nearby
Cottage full of character and quirky. Lovely comfy bed and also very good padded sun loungers for relaxing in garden. Met lots of very friendly local dog walkers. Richard left lots of useful information in a folder and we enjoyed exploring the area. Our two black labradors had a great time too. Would we return?Definitely.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful cottage and wonderful area
