Had a lovely week in Norfolk, lucky with the weather. Enjoyed viewing the countryside on our bikes, some quiet roads and cycle tracks. The trip to see the seals was amazing - something I've always wanted to do. Morston, Blakeney and Wells so peaceful, with beautiful views. We walked along the beach at Hunstanton, a lovely walk and then back along the cliff top to the lighthouse. Thank you for the scones & jam - much appreciated.Lesley & Jerry - 24th September 2016

Lovely cottage & area and great weather - who needs anything more? Spent days on the beach at Wells & Mundesley, walked at Sheringham Park. Obviously took the steam train on the North Norfolk line to Sheringham. Food wise, ate too much fish & chips on Cromer Pier and had a more refined meal at the Kings Head in Letheringsett. Thanks - P.S. the scones were a nice touch - appreciated.Karen, Gary & Ruth - 10th September 2016
