Looking for a dog-friendly self-catering break not too far from the coast, we found Old Rectory Cottages while trawling the internet, and booked direct with owner Keith Parker. Preparations went smoothly - responsive communications and good directions. On arrival we found a big slab of rich, moist fruit cake, a bag of sweets, some milk and eggs in the fridge,...

The Old Rectory is cosy and clean. It has beautiful views over the Norfolk countryside and the bird life is amazing.The hosts are really lovely people and nothing is too much trouble and if requested you can have a delicious meal delivered to your place. The only negative is the drive way up to the Rectory It does need to...

My wife discovered The Old Rectory on the internet, while browsing for somewhere to stay for a short break away with our dog "Toast". We normally tend to stay in hotels, but The Old Rectory's web site intrigued us as it mentioned self-catering, but with the fridge kept stocked for all you could want for breakfast as well as the...

We have stayed at The Old Coach House room twice now so I thought it high time I submitted a review. If you are looking for a restful few days in a beautiful part of the country with lots of nearby attractions then look no further. Breakfast is in the fridge so you can help yourself to whatever you prefer...

Great place to stay! We were made very welcome and everything you could possibly want was provided. We took the food option and the food was great and generous portions. My suggestion would be to offer a bottle of wine as an add-on. Especially good were the choices for DIY breakfast. The accommodation we had was accessed by steep steps...

We have just returned from a two night 'Dogs Dinner Break' and would highly recommend the spotlessly clean Sam's Stable cottage. Everything we needed had already been thought of and the evening meals Jeannie cooked were lovely. The fridge had bacon, sausages, eggs, tomatoes, beans, bread, butter and homemade marmalade for our breakfast. A homemade cake IF we got hungry...

We have just returned from 3 wonderful nights staying in Sam's Stable with our small dog. The cottage was perfect for our needs; warm, cozy and everything we could need was already there. It has to be one of the best powerful showers I have used. At night it is silent and dark enough to view the stars which we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the border between Suffolk and Norfolk, and laying in grounds of almost seven acres - surrounded by farmland on three sides, the grounds are a haven for wildlife. The four one bedroom self catering holiday cottages provide the ideal holiday location if you want to leave behind the strains of town or city living and relax in the tranquil surroundings of a Victorian rectory amidst rolling unspoilt Suffolk countryside.Well behaved dogs are welcome in all of our self catering holiday cottages.The one bedroom self catering holiday cottages have been sympathetically converted from Victorian buildings retaining the original features where possible. Individually decorated and furnished to a very high standard, to ensure they are as unique in character as they are diverse in style. Enjoy the King or Super King size bed and the luxury of the Cotton linen & towels. The holiday cottages have a 4-Star assessment by VisitEngland. In addition all four of our cottages have received the accolade of a coveted Gold Award - reserved for accommodation that provides exceptional quality in all areas, but in particular in service and hospitality ... more   less
