Absolutely lovely cottage as always. Owner puts a lot of effort into all his cottages with style, decor, comfort, and facilities. Always flexible and happy to help with special requests too. We have stayed in this cottage / next door on 6 occasions now and will not hesitate to use again. Booking process was fabulous too with the team at Original/Read moreNorfolk Cottages always going the extra mile! Hide

Perfect location for Holt. Very small living space, but adequate. Very basic. Would benefit from a deep clean. The parking space was very welcome.

We had a lovely week in Holt, and certainly wish to return to 3 Starboard at some time in the future. Just two negatives: we would have appreciated more detailed instructions on how to operate the central heating, as we are not familiar with Hive. (We are now!) Secondly, we feel that the bin store is a problem: although the car parked by the doRead moreors left plenty of room to open the doors, this didn't leave enough room for the bin men to collect the rubbish which was piling up and getting rather smelly.

A lovely renovated cottage in the centre of Holt. Fittings were of a high standard and it was clear that the owner had used local shops when buying kitchen equipment. Big fan of supporting local.

Property was fine but cold stone floor could have used some rugs. Original choice of property withdrawn the day after I paid the balance was frankly unacceptable. Refund not paid in accordance with my instructions.

We very much enjoyed our stay at 3 Starboard. It was clean, warm, well-appointed and the location was excellent for our purposes. On a practical note we had to go out and buy jcloths; washing up brush and dishwasher tablets. It was not until the end of our stay when we were looking for the pIastic bags for the dirty linen that we found a small Read moreblack sealed box without label under the sink with these items in it. It would have been helpful to have the black box clearly marked and signalled in the information folder. For winter guests, blinds on the back door and a rug would be desirable extras. Hide
