"Lovely weekend break!"
12 of us stayed at Magic Moments last weekend for 2 nights for a hen party. Everyone had a lovely time! All the rooms were clean and there was plenty of room considering we had such a large group! The owners John and Pam are wonderful and could not do enough for us - including making us champagne cocktails! They only live down the road so are always nearby if anything is needed!
The house is huge! 5 bedrooms upstairs and a pull out sofa bed in another room downstairs. 3 bathrooms and an extra toilet downstairs. Big hot tub for 6 people - which is very hot! Huge swimming pool which unfortunately we did not get to use as the weather wasn't nice! Ping pong table was a great added extra, and there is even a small gym! The outdoor patio is large with plenty of seating. The house is only a short drive from Kings Lynn centre - only about 5 or 10 minutes away.
One night we had a chef (Nigel) come and cook us a meal, who was reccomended by John - amazing food and great value for money!
We all had a great time at Magic Moments and can recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away!

"Amazing weekend at Magic Moments!"
Nine of us had a wonderful long weekend at Magic Moments- it was a reunion with a load of us from Uni and the house was perfect for having a few drinks, playing some music, and chilling out. John and Pam superb hosts who couldn't do enough for us- including giving us a few extra rolls of toilet paper when we ran out and forgot that all the shops would be closed on Easter Sunday! Hot tub absolutely amazing, perfect way to spend a hangover. Couldn't fault the house at all, perfect for our needs and would definitely come and stay again.

"Truly magic moments!"
Stayed with a group of 12 girls for birthday parties! Wonderful accomadation, rooms perfect, bathrooms, kitchen and lounge areas all excellent! Swimming pool and hot tub a real plus, the service from John pam and Andrew couldn't have been better! They did a fantastic BBQ for us. Welcome cocktail was a lovely start to the weekend. Garden area superb for the 12 of us, plenty if seating altogether round the table. Everything you need is in a 12 mile radius from supermarkets to beaches in heacham and Hunstanton.
Overall a great house, felt homely as soon as you walked in, would recommend 100%!
Thanks again to John pam and Andrew you made us all feel very welcome and would return again. X

"The perfect house for a big group"
Excellent. The service from John and Pam was brilliant. They greeted us with champagne cocktails (which were pretty lethal ha) and they only live at the end of the road so they are close on hand to sort any problems. They sort the hot tub out at 9pm and 9am, closing and opening it and cleaning it for you. We had everything we needed during our stay including a welcome basket of tea, coffee, sugar, bread and milk!
The property has a long list of amenities that can keep a large group entertained. The hot tub, pool, pool slide and inflatables being just the main focus. There is a small gym room; a pool changing room; a table tennis table; WIFI; a BBQ; 3 sofa areas; a poker kit; a working bar; 2 TV's; a large garden with plentiful seating. Failing that if you want to play big games such as cricket, rounders or football, then there is the village hall field directly behind the property. I didn't expect as much as there was when I arrived, a pleasant shock. The house is the perfect layout to accommodate such big groups too as all the bedrooms are on one level and lead out to a lounge area, perfect for socialising.
The house is in the village of Middleton, it is a 5 minute walk away from a steak house/pub. We did not use this restaurant as we had too many BBQ's but it has good reviews on tripadvisor. The Tesco/Sainsbury are a 5 minute drive away. A taxi into Kings Lynn cost us £12 for a minibus (3 miles away). So there are lots of options if you do want to leave the house, which you probably won't.
John and Pam built this house in the 70's I believe and thus in some areas it can seem a little dated. It is however being redecorated and the rooms that have been modernised already look wonderful. The house however is still immaculately clean and the perfect place to stay!
I suggest if you are a large group looking for a holiday of pure fun and relaxation you come here!

"Excellent sociable house for large group"
An excellent house with plenty of accommodation that was ideal for our stag group, as few properties of this size, unfortunately the weather was not great so did not make a great deal of use of the hot tub and pool.
Large well-appointed kitchen and plenty of dining space so we could all sit down and eat together.
Good lounge and bar area so could enjoy a few beers before heading off to local pub.
The Turner family were all very helpful and accommodating right from making my initial enquiry through to departure.
Excellent value for money, all made for a great weekend away. Would recommend it to friends and hope to come back another time.

"A week of fun"
Our group of 12, all family brothers cousin and families had a good week. House was really nice and spacious. The pool and hot tub kept the kids fully entertained even in the rain! We went to the coast twice and visited Sandringham that was close by as well. The team at Magic Moments were very welcoming and happy for us to contact them for any help etc. With the kids and pool the on site washing machine and drier were a great accompaniment.
