Best property we’ve stayed in .Mrs Karen Young - 8th October 2018
Delightfull bungalow, lovely garden and dog friendly. Super location for beautiful Norfolk Mrs Mary Lacoux - 18th July 2018
Accommodation provided at Waxwings was great. The garden in particular has a "wow" factor, it was also very secure for our golden retriever and we didn't have to worry about his being on the lose whilst we were enjoying a relaxing cup of tea in the garden or watching the sunset in the evening. Mrs Cynthia Kitching - 2nd October 2017
Norfolk Country Cottages...so professional and helpful Waxwings an amazing place to stay....everything and more at hand....spotlessly clean, wonderful facilities and beautiful decor...we can't praise this cottage enough....we will be back if we are fortunate enough to find a week which is not already booked....thank you so much.Mrs J Ford - 31st July 2017
Waxwings is probably the finest holiday home we have ever stayed in. The Norfolk Country Cottages staff I spoke to were very friendly and knowledgeable. Thornham village has 3 great pubs, the White Horse is just up the road and the Gin Trap is a 5 minute drive. So great if you like pubs. Mr G Birch - 25th April 2017
An lovely property with a fabulous garden and nice finishesDr Jim Hoyle - 18th April 2017
The cottage was very well appointed and in very good condition. The grounds and facilities, chairs, BBQ etc were excellent.Mrs N Bareham - 3rd April 2017
Had a real "wow" factor on arrival and walking in. The garden room was used most - light, airy and has its own reverse aircon heating/cooling whilst the lounge with a wood burner is ideal on a cold evening. Mr S Mcgiveron - 17th January 2017
Waxwings cottage was perfect in every way and we were really impressed with the cleanliness; very modern with a lovely kitchen.Mrs Joan Skelton - 21st November 2016
We really enjoyed our week there, location was excellent, the property was superb. Thank You for all your help.Mr R E Warren - 31st October 2016
Our 6th UK holiday cottage & by far the best. All look good in the pictures but this one was even better. Will definitely return. Loved our holiday & so did our dog - superb garden. Thank you for providing what you actually offer!Mrs L Hartley - 25th July 2016
It was a pleasure to have the use of such a large and very attractive garden with various seating.Mrs S Gollins - 18th June 2016
Excellent property, well furnished and lovely garden. Great base for walking and sightseeing plus some great pubs and restaurants nearby.Mrs Horobin - 30th May 2016
A lovely holiday property with a large, fully enclosed garden. Ideal for our dog. The location is excellent, close to beaches, nice walks and many interesting places to visit. We would certainly recommend to family and friends.Mrs C Phelan - 11th May 2016
Property was of a very high standard, clean and comfortable. Children loved the huge garden.Mrs Jo Widdowson - 15th April 2016
Have been to many that have promised much but few have lived up to it as much as Waxwings did. Excellent.Mr Keith Maltby - 23rd February 2016
Beautiful property, lovely garden ideal for children to play in.Mr R Baker - 31st August 2015
A beautiful, immaculate holiday home, everything provided for inside and outside enjoyment, internet radio, games, comfy sofas, outside seating, BBQ etc. Glorious sunsets over fields where the barn owl and Marsh Harriers can be seen each day. We have been to many holiday cottages in over 30 years this has to be in our top 3. Thank you!Mrs C Short - 20th July 2015
Waxwings surpassed our expectations and we would happily recommend this. Hopefully we shall get to enjoy this wonderful cottage and area again. We had a great holidayMrs Jacqueline Barr - 14th July 2015
