“Lovely, welcoming holiday cottage”
Fuzzy Duck is situated within easy reach of shops and food outlets and is an ideal base for exploring the Norfolk coast or some of the inland villages. It is very well equipped as the owners try to anticipate all needs.Clearly David & Helen take pride in their property and it is extremely well presented. The lounge, dining room, kitchen and bathroom are well equipped. All the bedrooms are well furnished and comfortable. There is a large garden with plenty of seating options as well as space to play. David and Helen were very helpful, sending final details of the cottage address and entry procedure together with information about attractions in the area. A welcome pack awaited us on our arrival.
Owner's reply: Martin - thank you for taking the trouble to do this review. As mentioned when you stayed we hadn't quite finished the Summer House - but glad to say that's now complete & ready to be used in the Summer. Hope we can welcome you back another time, you'd be very welcome. Thanks Dave & Helen.
“Wonderful cottage; great base for exploring Norfolk”
We stayed here for a week over Easter, a family of four (two children, 9 and 11) from Germany. The cottage was spotless, with a very cozy feel to it and comfortable beds. It is in a quiet street, with a nice garden at the back, and well equipped. The owners made you feel very welcome, provided useful and friendly information before and during the stay and left a wonderful welcome pack, which was highly appreciated after the long trip. The location is ideal not only for beach-related activities but also for sight-seeing and other holiday-activities; we particularly enjoyed visiting Sandringham. The kids expecially loved spending a day at Snettisham farm. We would definitely recommend this cottage!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the trouble to do this review. And also for the very kind text you sent us. We are chuffed to bits that you & your family enjoyed Norfolk as much as we do. Regards Dave & Helen.
“Everything you could wish for away from home!”
A perfect holiday home- with a great deal of thought going into the decor to suit it's surroundings. Very well equipped throughout and perfectly situated for lovely walks.
Fuzzy Duck is a lovely, welcoming cottage. The owners go out of their way to ensure that you have everything that you may need. There was a lovely welcome hamper. The bed was very comfortable and the cottage spotless. It was close to nice pubs and lovely beaches. Will definitely visit again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the review and we look forward to welcoming you back another time. Regards Dave and Helen.
“A Perfect Break”
My Wife and I stayed at the Fuzzy Duck from Monday to Saturday in November; the reason for our stay was to explore the area. I had bad experiences with Bed and Breakfast accommodation and also with holiday cottages in the past and have stayed in hotels since then; my wife suggested that we try a cottage again. The Fuzzy Duck lived up to the positive reviews and surpassed my expectations; with high quality accommodation, excellent welcome pack and very useful and timely information and support from the owner. I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough and will be trying other cottages from now on.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely review. Good to hear we've re-invigorated your appetite for holiday cottages. We'd love to welcome you back another time.
“Lovely warm, clean and welcoming cottage.”
Fuzzy Duck is situated in the heart of Heacham village with easy access to shops and food outlets. It is an ideal base for exploring the Norfolk coast or some of the inland villages. As the beach faces onto the Wash it is a very safe beach and has some fabulous sunsets. The play barn at the Norfolk Lavender Farm is ideal for wet days. Fuzzy Duck is very well equipped and extremely well presented. It is clearly much loved by the owners as well as being a holiday let. The garden is well laid out and there are plenty of seating options as well as space to play. The utility room is an added bonus for all those sandy wellies, buckets and spades! The Master bedroom is a touch of luxury with lovely furnishings. The second bedroom also has a double bed and is useful that the two beds have mattresses of differing firmness/softness so that you have a comfort choice! Fuzzy Duck is not really suitable for the under 5s due to the open staircase and the cabin bed in the single bedroom. Having said that Dave and Helen were very accommodating in providing a z bed and stair gates for our 2 year old granddaughter. The only slight negative was that we didn't find the lounge furniture terribly comfortable but that is more about personal preference rather than a fault with the furniture. Dave and Helen were very hospitable, texting us a few days before arrival with final details and again after arrival to ensure that we were happy. We were greeted with a very generous welcome pack and the fire ready laid so we could relax straight away into our holiday.
Owner's reply: Firstly thank you for all of your positive comments. We would however, disagree about its suitability for under 5s. Over 50% of our bookings are from families with young children. The open staircase you refer to has fixed (permanent) stair gates at both the top & bottom, so unless the child is left unsupervised on the stairs it shouldn't ever be an issue. With regards to the cabin bed, we 100% agree that its not suitable for very young children and that's why we always double check with our guests and give them the option of using the z-bed (which fits under the bunk) or offer the use of our travel cot. Thanks again for taking the trouble to do the review and if we find other guests make similar comments going forward, rest assured we would take appropriate action.
“Great cottage, really well equipped and comfortable”
Had high expectations after reading all the good reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The owners have put in so much attention to detail, everything you could think of was provided, and everything was to a high standard. We brought our 9 month old baby, and he slept beautifully in the comfy cot provided. There was even a hooded baby bath towel waiting for him! The garden was lovely too, he enjoyed practicing his walking out there. Quiet village location, about 15 mins walk to the beach and a short drive into hunstanton. We went on the seal trip which was good as well. Highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore north Norfolk.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the excellent review we never tire of getting positive feedback. And we love hearing that families enjoy the cottage, village and area as much as we do. Hopefully we can welcome you back another time. Regards Dave and Helen.
This is a great cottage with everything you need in a quiet but convenient location. I traveled here with my partner and our 3 month old daughter. We wanted somewhere quiet, but where we could access places for day trips. This didn't disappoint with Sandringham and Wells-next-the-sea (amongst others) easily accessible. The cottage itself is very nice, with probably everything you need. It is in a quiet location with a great garden for outside drinking and eating, yet is only a short walk from local amenities. The owners were also always prompt to reply to any queries and questions (about both the cottage and the local area). We would definitely rent this cottage again!!
Owner's reply: Thank you for the very generous review, it really is appreciated, especially as we did have a couple of hick-ups, one that was my fault & one that was BTs. Thanks again for being so understanding. You'd be very welcome back any time. Regards Dave & Helen.
“Perfect place to stay”
This was our second stay at the property and once again it exceeded our expectations, especially with the improvments to the garden (which is large, enclosed and perfect for young wandering children!). As we have two young children the stair gates are a fab addition and a highchair was also provided for us, plenty of space indoors as well for them to run around. We will most definitely be booking a third stay next year.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the trouble to do the review especially as you've done one after your first visit. It's also nice to hear you like the small improvement we've been making. Since you left we've also replaced the bed and mattress in the second bedroom and the mattress in the bunk bed. We look forward to you visiting us again. Regards Dave and Helen.
“Excellent Cottage, excellent location - just perfect”
We spent a brilliant week at Fuzzy Duck Cottage, having stayed there the previous year. When we arrived the cottage was spotless, and a lovely welcome pack was waiting for us, the kids (11, 8 and 2 1/2) quickly disappeared out into the big garden, which has been improved since our last visit, with a comfy sitting area. Our youngest had the smallest bedroom, which fitted his travel cot in easily, and the stair-gates at the top and bottom of the stairs kept him safe. The kitchen is well equipped, but the chip-shop just 5 minutes away serves the best fish and chips we have tasted in a long time! Heacham is lovely, and has two beaches only a few minutes drive away. Hunstanton is close by with a lovely beach, aquarium and fun fair. The cottage is perfectly placed for day trips to Sandringham, Holkham, RSPB Titchwell, Castle Rising, Langham Glass to name a few. Also Farmer Fred's play barn at Norfolk Lavender is perfect for colder/rainy days to let the kids (and adults) let off steam! This is our second year at Fuzzy Duck and we cannot fault it, and we can't wait to come back again!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the brilliant review. And we hope to see you again next year. Also chuffed that you liked the improvements to the garden. PS thank you also for the brilliant photography you shared with us. Regards Dave & Helen.
