Thank you for your review. Squirrel Cottage is situated in a peaceful tranquil spot with good access to the many attractions that Norfolk has to offer, and only a few miles from the historic city of Norwich, your mind can go back in time walking in the lanes in the old part of the city where you come across ancient churches and 2 cathedrals , a thriving market and interesting independent shops.
