Thanks for a great short break - the cottage was perfect and we felt right at home as soon as we walked in. The hot tub was the icing on the cake, and the friendliness of the hosts throughout was top notch. GREAT!

We found Dove cottage to be delightful and particularly liked the swimming pool and hot tub. The location of the cottage made it ideal for exploring the area, it was easy to get into the city of Norwich on the park and ride. The weather was amazing, sunshine every day and we had a great time.
