If you don’t know this part of Norfolk you are in for a treat! The Broads National Park are practically on the doorstep and one of the largest of the Broads is Hickling Broad, a haven for wildlife and looked after by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, who do tours in the summer months, it is easy to spend time away from the world along the marked trails and let the day drift away, don’t forget a picnic. The fabulous east coast beaches are also nearby and often underpopulated even in the summer months, family friendly with soft sands the beach at Sea Palling, just 5 miles away, has been given the prestigious Blue Flag safe beach award this year. Iconic coastal landmarks such as Horsey Windpump and Happisburgh Lighthouse with its candy red and white stripes should not be missed and the resident seal colony at Horsey Gap is about as close to nature as you can get; if you are here in the winter months the new pups can be seen too. A series of Quiet Lanes, that have been designated as rural roads for less traffic, abound in the area, which is great for walkers and cyclists alike and the cultural city of Norwich is worthy of a day’s outing to take in the culture, a bit of retail therapy and so much more.

We loved our stay in the cottage. It suited our holiday perfectly.Mrs Julie Brennan - 9th January 2019
A very pleasant property nicely situated for access to the other places we wanted to visit. Ideal flooring for any visiting dog and the local public house was dog friendly, handing out treats on arrival. The owners did not intrude at any time but we were aware that they were available if necessary. One of the best for comfort and cleanliness in this price range and would definitely visit again.Mrs Lynn Smith - 13th November 2018
Great garden and local walks for dogsMrs Sharon Malia - 20th October 2018

We would highly recommend Valdoon for anyone wanting to stay near the beautiful Norfolk Broads and Norfolk coast. The property was furnished and cleaned to a very high standard and we were made very welcome by the owner. Our booking was handled very efficiently by Norfolk Country Cottages. Top marks all round! Mrs Charlene Catchpole - 15th February 2018
A fabulous holiday let! What a lovely peaceful pretty place. The owner Sarah was so welcoming and there when needed but allowed us our space and privacy. The accommodation was so beautiful and gorgeous furnishings. There is just nothing to fault, it was a wonderful experience after a difficult few weeks. We are shortly due to move to the area and we will absolutely recommend the cottage to our family and friends. Thank you Mrs Monica Parker - 8th January 2018
