The house is spacious with a super kitchen/dining/family room that has panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, ‘arguably the best views in this part of Norfolk’.

Mr David K,

A beautiful house in a beautiful setting. So much wildlife to enjoy. House is a perfect location to explore Norfolk. The owners are very welcoming and we would definitely stay again.

Mrs Maureen N,

Thank you for welcoming us to your lovely cottage. We have all had a fantastic time and really enjoyed exploring Norfolk. The Bell at Brisley is lovely with great food. We would definitely recommend to others! We have really made ourselves at home here and are sad to leave.

The Ross Party,

The perfect house for a family of 3 generations to stay and celebrate. Clean, cosy and comfortable.

The Kay Party,

Our first visit to Norfolk has been a memorable one thanks to this lovely house. It really has everything we could possibly need and the owners have been the most thoughtful hosts. All the family have enjoyed playing tennis and the sweet lambs have been a real pleasure to watch each day. Thanks for a really wonderful stay.

The Hartle Party,

Our second visit to Dentford Heights - we had such a wonderful 'May Day' Bank Holiday weekend last year, we returned for the same weekend this year! Another fantastic family beak! WE have had an absolutely lovely time, enjoying the grounds, feeding the lambs, lots of fresh air and garden games alongside numerous stomps in the woods to find (rather elusive) bears an gruffalos, and the first BBQ of the season. As always the owners were wonderfully welcoming and ensured we all had fun. A yearly family tradition now!
