Great cottage: spacious and comfortable! Very quiet location with a big garden! Great if you have your dog with you on holiday. Sleeps 4, but really gives you the living space for 4! Only minus: no workable wifi/internet! Bring your own mobile wifi solution with you, e.g. EE or Vodafone, these providers have mobile coverage at this location.

What a lovely cottage in such a peaceful rural location. Gingerbread Cottage was cosy, clean and very well equipped. This is the best place if you really want a proper rest away from it all. The WiFi was not great but that suited us!

Wonderful cottage in idyllic location. Stephen was a great help and went above and beyond to help set the cottage up for my proposal to my now fiance (she said yes!). Walkable onto wroxham and many great areas around that the dog loved including the fenced off garden area where she was able to run around for hours.

This is a wonderful cottage,very peaceful and in a good location. Lots of interesting churches to see, don't miss Belaugh and St Benets abbey, very atmospheric.
