We have had a really great Christmas break here, loved seeing the seals at Horsey Gap and enjoyed trips to Cromer and Sheringham. Weather has been kind & the fire makes it extra cosy. Nearby Waitrose very handy! Fab meal at The Gunton Arms. Lovely area and we feel very lucky to be the first Xmas visitors to the cottage. Thank you Colin and Diane. Hope to return. Happy New Year 2019! Heidi and Tom - 28th December 2018
Excellent property and very helpful owners.Mrs Mary Hanton - 14th October 2018
Even better the second time round. Loved the seals at Horsey and we could have even sunbathed in October. Jam and marmalade are very nice touch and we can't wait to come back when its cold to light the fire! Thanks for a very relaxing week.Ian and Teresa - 5th October 2018
Lovely relaxing week, weather fantastic. Must see places are Felbrigg Hall, Holkham Hall and the beer garden at The Gunton Arms. The cottage is comfortable and absolutely spotless. Great place to recharge the batteries. Rachel and Paul Clitheroe - 21st September 2018
Lovely, peaceful cottage. Welcoming hosts. Generous welcome package. Very comfortable cottage. Everything was thought of down to a torch and beach towels. Mrs Jocelyn Thorndike - 17th September 2018
We have had a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage. The cottage is beautiful, it is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into it. The eggs and jams were great. It is a great place to stay and just chill for a week, and even the chickens became friends. Thanks for a wonderful stay.Steve & Jess Wakefield - 14th September 2018
We've been really lucky to have found such a great little cottage, so carefully planned out and cared for. It's been lovely to come back after a day of exploring the Broads, Norwich and the excellent Norfolk Nature Reserves. We shall miss the chickens and the Moorhens. Thank you.The Harrison Party - 17th August 2018
We came for a relaxing break to recharge our batteries and Brick Kiln Cottage has been the ideal place for that. The cottage and surroundings are a delight. The cottage is beautifully presented and very comfortable. We didn't travel more than 10 miles away yet found everything to interest & entertain that we needed. Thank you.

The owners were unobtrusive but also most helpful and welcoming - they had provided many thoughtful extra touches which enhanced our stayMrs Andrea Morison - 25th June 2018
The cottage was perfect for an escape to the country and a slice of peace and quiet away from urban pressures. The closeness of Waitrose (just a few minutes) was a bonus.Mr neville grainge - 21st June 2018
A much needed few days break made perfect by staying at Brick Kiln Cottage. Thank you Colin and Diane!

Thank you for a lovely pre-Christmas break in Norfolk. Colin and Dianne are the perfect hosts. Lovely little cottage in a great spot to get out and about to explore. We probably should have explored more but it is too nice to be lazy by the fire in the cottage!The Angus Party - 11th December 2017
We've enjoyed a lovely and much anticipated break here in this lovely, comfortable cottage into which so much thought and care has been invested. Great location for exploring the area. Thanks for the kind welcome touches! We enjoyed watching the pond and chickens! Would happily return at a later date. The Evans-Pughe Party - 27th October 2017
A lovely cottage that was well thought out and has everything you need. There was a lovely warm welcome with preserves and eggs etc. which were excellent. This was a lovely cottage with everything in it you need. It was well placed to visit the coast and all surrounding areas and we had a lovely holiday here. Mrs K Wrighton - 8th October 2017
A lovely cottage with everything you would need or want. We had a very warm welcome with a lovely selection of preserves and produce on arrival. The cottage is warm, quality and homely and we would come back if we were coming to this area. The cottage is in a good position for visiting all of Norfolk. We managed to visit a large amount of the coast, Norwich and Horning where we had a lovely Mississippi paddle boat trip. You have a lovely cottage.The Wrighton Party - 30th September 2017
Delighted to be the first guests in this charming country cottage. It's easy to relax in this well equipped, comfortable environment and a great deal of thought has gone into its planning. Colin and Dianne are the perfect 'neighbours', only too happy to help when needed, otherwise non-intrusive.The Davidson Party - 14th September 2017
