“A lovely old cottage”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2013

What a lovely Four days break we had,and was made very welcome by Jackie and John., the cottage was nice and clean and very comfortable making it feel like home. A short walk through their grounds to see the swans in the river with their young,they are fed by jackie and John so they are always around. There are plenty of nice pubs for eating,within a short drive,

“Warm, friendly place to stay. Quiet rural location.”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2013

We spent a wonderful week in May, exploring the countryside, thoroughly enjoying everything. Great to return each night to our new "home away from home." Best cottage and hosts we have ever experienced in our many years of travel. Historical converted inn about 400 years old but so comfortable.

“Lovely cottage with everything you need in beautiful surroundings”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2013

This is a lovely cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings. Good place for just chilling out but also well positioned to go visiting around Norfolk/ Suffolk area. We visited Banham Zoo, Framlingham Castle, Bressingham steam collections and gardens (bit disappointing) in the week we were there. Cold windy weather effected our stay but that's British weather for you! Lovely coal effect fire in the cottage helped thaw out our bones after a cold day out. Some good local pubs for eating out ( Horseshoes and Red lion) as long as you have a car to get there. Property offered wi-fi but we couldn't manage to get on it, also mobile reception bad indoors (could be seen as a blessing if trying to get away from it all). Warm and welcome reception from owners including some nice little treats in the fridge. Really comfy beds. We will definitely visit again.

“Cosy cottage, welcoming owners.”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2012

My adult daughter and I stayed for 3 nights at the Olde Coach House Cottage. The whole experience surpassed our expectations. The cottage is very well renovated with the original features present, beams, inglenook fire place etc, but the trappings of modern life are supplied too (ie a dishwasher, full oven, microwave, modern bathroom, modern TV etc) . The cottage has so much equipment. Overall it feels like someone's home not a holiday let. The feature that was a very pleasant surprise was the 3 acres of garden and woodland leading down to the very pretty River Waveney, complete with swans. Guests are free to wander around the garden and we spent a lovely evening sitting by the river after a hard days sightseeing! The owners Jackie and John are lovely. Really welcoming and friendly. Slight downside- the free WiFi signal did not really work in the cottage. The mobile phone reception is not good (we had 3 different providers amongst the phones we had with us). But mobile phones (well certainly O2 and Three), worked outside. This is obviously not the fault of the cottage, just the general mobile reception in this area.

“A wonderful place to stay”

Reviewed 18 May 2011

Jackie and John have the most wonderful cottages, set in a beautiful peaceful village location leading down to the river. every comfort is provided . a warm welcome is always given to guests, tea and coffee wine and usually biscuits or cake on arrival. i have stayed in their cottages for many years . i cannot praise or rate the properties highly enough and all the extra things too, the wonderful fishing the care shown to guests the friendly local people, the lovely area with so much to see and do i just have to keep returning. nothing is too much trouble they always make your stay special. and the price is value for money. it is in an ideal location to travel around Norfolk and Suffolk you will never run out of places to visit and at the end of the day have somewhere comfortable and lovely to return too.

“Would recommend this to anyone.”

Reviewed 18 May 2011

Our fourth visit and hopefully not our last. The cottages were beautiful and the owners fantastic. Thank you for a lovely week. The only problem we had was the lack of mobile phone signal in the village! The cottages are well situated for many different attractions as well. Definitely worth a return trip.
