The property felt immediately like a home from home. The Homeowner left cakes, milk and eggs which was a lovely welcome. She was very helpful throughout. The property was clean and comfortable. I personally loved to spend time in the conservatory. The location is fabulous with lots of walks around the village. We had a lovely time. Thank you

Mrs S,

We had a fantastic two week stay in Watts Cottage. Great location for exploring the Norfolk Broads and coastline. The property is of an excellent standard, beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The owners are lovely with lots of handy local knowledge!

Mrs W,

Lovely quiet cottage, well equipped and benefitting from a large conservatory. We often find an “enclosed garden” isn’t necessarily terrier proof for our escape artist schnauzer so it was so nice that this really does have a secure garden. The cottage is in easy reach of the Broads, beaches and Norwich. We will definitely be back!

Mrs W,

Lovely cottage. Very comfortable and well equipped. The beds were dressed nicely and the linen was fresh smelling and of good quality. Very well kept garden. The stairs are steep as advertised and with the bathroom downstairs it is something to consider if mobility is limited. Personal preference for us would be a bigger toaster but grill available for the thicker slices of toast. Welcome gifts on arrival a very nice touch. Lovely quiet village with nice walks. Local area very interesting with lots to do. We would definitely book again. Thank you.

Mrs C,

Great little property in a great location. Pretty, well maintained and good access to Broadland area. Upton is a lovely little village with a community shop and pub both of which are useful and friendly.

Dr S,

What a brilliant week Our hosts Jayne and Phillip were really helpful and full of information about where to eat and all the walks in the area, and left us a really tasty cake to welcome us. The broads are right on your door step. The cottage has everything you need for a week away, however the stairs were steeper then we realised , but you do get used to them.The white horse pub in the village does really great food we had takeaways and Sunday Lunch in the garden. The community shop is great for forgotten essentials and and really tasty chutney's. Very dog friendly, We would definitely book again.
