Thank you for the welcome pack and flowers - much appreciated. Despite the weather being cold for May, we have had a very enjoyable week. We mainly spent our time birdwatching and long walks on the beaches. We particularly liked Wells, lots of boating activity. The cottage is lovely and we spent early evenings in the garden with a glass of wine, but we were well wrapped up! Thanks again for providing a cosy cottage, we had everything we could need.The Macisaac Party - 6th May 2017
A really sweet, little cottage with lots of lovely touches. We had lots of wonderful day trips with two dogs and two boys! It was easy to wear them all out here. Temples seal trip was wonderful. The boys enjoyed the deer safari at Snettisham Park.The De Freitas Party - 15th April 2017
A lovely cosy cottage. Plenty of varied walks for the dogs - woods, beaches and heath-land. The food at the Three Horseshoes was super as was that at the pub on the green at Great Massingham, a delightful village for a stroll. All together we had a lovely break. Thank you.The O'Hara Party - 5th November 2016
We've had a wonderful short break in Norfolk. Carrstone Cottage has been the perfect location for exploring the beautiful scenery. Wells-next-the-Sea is a fantastic day out, make sure you take the train to the beach. We also visited Sandringham and would definitely recommend, especially for dog walks in the woods. All in all a fantastic holiday. Thank you!The Thurlow Party - 29th October 2016
