"Such a fantastic holiday which we didn't want to end"

Fantastic quiet location just 10 minutes from the City. Fantastic grounds that Chrissie and Keith were happy for us to explore and use. The swimming pool was fantastic and a massive hit with the kids. We loved playing on the huge lawn with the football or the badminton set. Nothing was too much trouble for Chrissie and Keith and they were happy to answer any of our questions. It felt like home with all of the equipment that was provided but without all the stress. Would recommend to all.

Dove cottage had everything we wanted from our holiday. The swimming pool and hot tub made it even better. The cottage was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed (even big mugs and a sharp knife!) Chrissy and Keith were very welcoming and bought us a bottle of wine for our anniversary. The local pub was ok and the two pubs at Drayton were good. We used the park and ride to Norwich which was very worth while. We would happily return in the future.

"Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant."

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!

"Total Relaxation - Definitely De-Stressed."

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.

"Amazing would definitely recommend this cottage."

We have just come back from a weeks stay in Dove cottage. The cottage has everything you need during your stay.

The pool and surroundings are perfect. if you choose to go out during the day there is so much to do for all the family. Our 6 year old son enjoyed his holiday so much he wanted to live there forever, he really did not want to come home.

The owners are very friendly and helpful. we will definitely go back.
