Beautifully furnished and cosy cottage with a stunning garden to sit out in warm weather. The location was ideal for exploring the Norfolk coast with Hunstanton being a short drive away. Mrs Karen Spinks - 23rd May 2018
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
You should feel very proud of your lovely cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Your attention to detail was very much appreciated. Our little blind dog was safe in your garden. Please accept our sincere thanks.The Bullinaire Party - 25th October 2016

It was an ideal base to explore Norfolk and all it has to offer, from the walks in the countryside to the coastal paths, the great pub lunches - what a beautiful county. Can I take this opportunity to thank you for the use of your beautiful cottage.The Armstrong Party - 6th August 2016

We had a lovely long weekend in Carrstone. Cottage was full of character and welcome pack was appreciated - will look forward to staying again. Thank you.The Gargan Party - 14th February 2016
