Guest reviews

A lovely spacious, clean and well-equipped cottage. Ideally located, this was a quiet getaway, spending quality time together for our 15th Wedding Anniversary and it was perfect.

What a wonderful stay we've had for Christmas 2018! Thank you for decorating the cottage - very thoughtful. Perfect for our small dog in your enclosed garden. Thank you for everything!

What a wonderful stay we've had for Christmas 2018. Thank you for decorating the cottage with a tree and the Proseco/card - very thoughtful. Perfect for our small dog in your enclosed garden and so dog friendly at the Gin Trap too. Christmas Day dinner excellent. Birdwatching at Titchwell and Cley Marshes, trip to see Grey Seals from Morston. Lunch at The Hoste in Burnham Market lovely. Thank you for everything.

A lovely, spacious, clean and well equipped cottage. Ideally located we visited Burnham Market, The Deli at Thornham for afternoon tea (yummy), walked along Holme beach, visited Le Strange barns at Old Hunstanton and of course two meals and several new gin and tonics at the Gin Trap, which was lovely. This was a quiet getaway, spending quality time together for our 15th wedding anniversary and it was perfect.

Back for the 4th time.- we must like it here! The Orange Tree is normally a firm favourite but not so much this time. Chequers however, is a new discovery and an excellent one.

We enjoyed our stay here, perfect for 3 adults. Lovely cottage in good location, one of our favourite Norfolk stays so far. Perfect for our cockapoo with small safe garden with good walks nearby. Good pub in village and wonderful village shop. We hope to return.

Fantastic cottage - hopefully we can return - dogs had a lovely time and so did we. Gin Trap was fab as always - we usually love the Orange Tree - sadly not so good this time. Eric's fish and chips and the Thornham Deli are winners - would also recommend Cley for crab sandwiches.

Wonderful couple of nights in a very spacious but cosy cottage. We stayed in this cottage as part of a larger group weekend with friends who live on Chapel Lane. It was a great space, lovely feel and very handy for the village amenities. The general location was great as we were not far from the beach and lovely walks. We didn't have time to do much else but will be back to visit our friends again so hopefully get to see what else there is to do in the area. Thank you.

Just perfect - the cottage was ideally placed with walking from the door and a good food pub just two minutes walk away.
The standard of cleanliness was excellent and the cottage owner had thought of everything. The garden (which I would use more in the summer) was beautifully landscaped.
Will definitely plan a return- thank you.

Lovely cottage, clean with everything you need. Great walks on the beach at Old Hunstanton and Wells - recommend the small cafe, beach cafe in Old Hunstanton, Eric's Fish and Chips OK but pricey. Really lovely part of the country, will definitely re-visit.

Lovely winter break - April cottage is very warm and cosy with a delightful wood burner in the living room. The garden is great if you have a dog as it is fully enclosed, and there are numerous walks from the cottage itself. The village has a fantastic shop 10 yds from the front door, and the Gin Trap pub in the village is particularly dog friendly where we enjoyed a couple of good meals. We love the local Farm Shops and were spoilt for choice in the area. Tilly's Cafe in Burnham Market is another very dog friendly place if you fancy a bite to eat or just a coffee. We had a very relaxing week.

A perfect holiday cottage

We had a perfect week, the cottage was just what we wanted, so much so we have already booked to go back twice next year! The dogs loved it too, so near to many lovely walks and beaches.

Delightful cottage - clean and well equipped. Lovely walks with the dog. We enjoyed exploring the local area. We would definatley come back!

The cottage location is superb as it is a couple of miles away from the busier coast road yet allows you to use the quiet country lanes to access Brancaster, Holkham, Burham Market etc. The village is perfect as (100 yards away) it has a great pub, The Gin Trap', which serves great food and great beer. There is also a delightful village store (50 yards away) which deserves all the business you can give it! The cottage is delightful and all the rooms are a really good size. It was also a bonus having an additional shower room and loo downstairs.

Great village to explore the beautiful countryside Ringstead has many great walks and is so near to the coast for relaxing by the sea. The cottage is well equipped and the decor inside really nice, the garden is pretty and ideal for having a few drinks our dog was completley safe outside. Great to have an a shop and pub only a few steps away.

Kingley Family, July 2016

The cottage was well equipped, the sunny garden was a bonus and the proximity of the pub, shop and local walks was handy. Parking space a little tight for an estate car. A freezer or fridge with freezer compartment would be a useful addition.

What a great cottage! Lots of home comforts, the beds are so comfy that I thought my teenage son would take root! The Gin Trap is a great asset too and is just up the road. I'd definitely recommend April cottage - a really lovely getaway.

Beautiful little cottage - perfect for us. Really well appointed and conveniently located for everything we wanted to do. Thank you so much. It was a lovely stay.

Very clean & well-maintained corner property. Good-sized rooms. Comfortable, cosy & homely. Plenty of storage. All mod cons, including FreeSat TV & excellent BT wifi. Very well-equipped kitchen. Lovely bedrooms & bedding. Upstairs bathroom & downstairs toilet immaculate. Access is from small,pleasant & secluded rear garden. Although it fronts on to the village main street, any traffic noise was never an issue. (Only one small negative comment would be that it's a larder fridge in the kitchen, whereas one with a freezer box would have been much handier for self-catering). However, this a lovely cottage in a nice peaceful little village. Will certainly book again.
