A very well presented and well equipped property. Perfectly located for visiting Norwich and the Norfolk coast. The outside space is is ideal for sitting out on a nice evening having a drink or a meal. The lounge area is comfortable and relaxing.

The bull pen is very quirky, lovely and peaceful, it’s in a great location, and a short drive to the local beaches, everything we needed was catered for, very clean and spacious, the owners are there if you need them but don’t bother you, we are definitely going to go back for another stay this year.

Excellent little bolt hole. All you need for a week away is included. Friendly owners are around if you need them, and if you dont, you are left alone. Accommodation is very clean and has everything you would need. Would not hesitate to recommend.
