Very good facilities in this beautifully decorated one bedroom house. Handy for Norwich city centre - walk takes about 20-25 mins or bus stop is just outside. Owners Charlie & Emma very friendly and helpful, and they provided an very useful welcome pack of provisions. Would definitely stay there again.

"Comfortable and quiet"
If you need a comfortable and quiet holiday rental within walking distance of Norwich city centre this is a good choice. It's a newly converted 'mini house' on 2 levels, with just a bedroom and bathroom upstairs and open plan kitchen, dining and living room downstairs. It feels spacious and is very well equipped with good quality appliances and accessories. The king size bed is very comfortable and the en suite has a good power shower. It is set well back behind an estate agents, so you don't hear much traffic noise. There is also a small patio garden at the front, which would be nice in the summer.
Thanks for your lovely comments and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Folly.
We look forward to welcoming you back when you come to Norwich.
All the best, Charlie & Emma.

"Pleasant cosy unit - Great service."
We are a couple travelling with 2 teenage daughters. The unit is a very pleasant, tastefully furnished and well equipped one. Our stay there was an enjoyable one and Charlie was a good host who took great pains to stock up with essentials to enable us to easily settle in.
The location was great as it is fairly close to the city. There are also numerous cafes, restaurants and grocery stores in the vicinity.
Only 2 minor snags. We were told that it is a new unit and that is probably why the wifi was poor. Our i phones and android phones could not connect to the wifi at all. Also, the bed sheet for the sofa bed was too small and did not fit - I'm sure Charlie and Emma will rectify these 2 shortcomings.
We will not hesitate to book it for our future trips.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments and Emma & I are delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Folly. We will of course rectify the few problems that you had with regards to the bed linen for the sofa bed and the wifi connection. Its a shame we didn't know about these issues during your stay as we would have immediately put these right for you. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Folly in the future. Charlie & Emma
