“Amazing tranquil location”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2015

Found Forty Winks on Trip Advisor, Never been to Norfolk but know it's a beautiful place. Forty winks had only a few reviews as it's only been open a few months, but we took the risk anyway as it looked stunning, we booked 3 nights. We arrived on the 13th Aug 2015 at around 5pm, on arrival we were greeted by Sally and her Husband Chris who were quick to show us around and show us how everything worked. The lodge itself was a little gem, totally separate from the main house where Sally and Chris live, this made it feel private and it felt like out own little home away from home. The lodge had everything we needed, it was very clean and cosy and even included a continental breakfast including a choice on the bread and milk ' great as me and my wife only use Semi Skimmed milk. Little things like this make a huge difference, the hospitality of Sally and Chris was simply amazing. They are always at hand to help with anything, both have great knowledge of the area and are the best people to ask for places to visit, if it wasn't for Chris we wouldn't of seen the Seals at Horsey ' A truly amazing experience for me and my wife. Each day they would recommend places for us to visit and we were never let down by the experience, Great Yarmouth was stunning and took no more than an hour and that's with stopping off for a coffee. Cromer was only around the corner and that too was stunning, we certainly wasn't short of things to do and places to see ' infact we wish we booked 7 days. Forty Winks is deep in the Norfolk country side, so if you like being out in the wilderness then you will love this place. You could hear a pin drop at night its was that quiet ' and at night it was totally pitch black. We live in the city and are always surrounded by an orange glow, so this made the late nights very tranquil. I could go on and on about how amazing this place is, but you will have to experience it to truly understand. We are certainly booking Forty Winks again, Sally and Chris are amazing friendly people and soon became good friends. Can't wait until next time so Thank you Forty Winks

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Your compliments are appreciated. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and were able to enjoy many of the local attractions. We really look forward to seeing you again in the future. Best wishes Sally and Chris.

“Lovely rooms and hosts in a beautiful, tranquil location.”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

We did this a late booking and so glad we did. Sally and Chris are the perfect hosts, good array of foods available for the continental style breakfast; rooms furnished to a high specification. Fabulous area to sit outside and just enjoy the peace and quiet and local wildlife - managed to spot a family of deer early one morning - priceless.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review, and we look forward to you returning to Forty Winks at some time in the future.
