“We had a wonderful stay at Briars cottage over Christmas. The place was beautifully furnished, clean and cosy, all we needed was some snow for a perfect chocolate box feel!!! We will definitely look to come back again in the future hopefully over the Summertime as the location is perfect for a number of great local attractions. ”

Gina Isaac from Hertfordshire, October 2011

“Briar cottage is beautiful, one of the best cottages we've stayed in, so cosy and homely with so much character. It had a lovely outlook onto the green. Photos on the website show it off perfectly. Nicely situated in Heacham. We appreciated the outside lighting when returning in the evenings. Was a bit surprised at the amount of passing traffic, but this didn't affect our stay. Would definitely book to stay here again.”
