Guest reviews

We enjoyed our two week stay at the Orchard cottage. It has a very cosy and welcoming atmosphere and lots of specially selected items. The cottage has everything to have a pleasant and comfortable stay. We loved taking our breakfast in the light garden room while looking at the numerous birds in the nice garden. One afternoon even a deer passed outside the garden gate. The location is perfect for exploring the beautiful area with its nearby splendid beaches. We made many extensive walks and enjoyed visiting Holkham hall, Sandringham and Houghton hall. We haven't seen it all yet and will certainly be back!!

After searching through hundreds of cottages - we came upon this little gem! My husband and I needed a well deserved break - quality time together to get away fom it all with our 2 little dogs. This cottage went above and beyond our expectations. Such a lovely cosy place to relax in. The garden is fantastic and secure for the dogs to enjoy. Attention to detail within the cottage was second to none. The bed was so comfortable, the location lovely and peaceful. The Gin Trap pub just a short walk away was also a fantastic experience, food amazing and staff so friendly. On our last day, we actually didn't want to leave and will definitely be returning very soon.

had a lovely holiday with my Mum at Orchard Cottage. the cottage was immaculately clean and spotless as was the bed linen and the very comfy beds. it was decorated to a very high standard. The garden was lovely. very close to tour the beautiful North Norfolk Coast. The Gin Trap pub in the village highly recommend. The only negative would be if staying with small children the stairs are steep and open, not very child friendly. A wonderful cottage to relax and unwind in.
