“A delightful period cottage which oozes charm and comfort”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The owners, Annie & Sean have thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible including a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and chocs on arrival, a basket of wood and coal for the fire, great kitchen facilities and the right amount of finishing touches to make it feel a true home from home. The property is situated in a reasonable sized village with a great local pub (for the nights you don't feel like cooking) and it's not too far into the next town to get supplies. The beaches are vast, the Broads are magnificent and the locals very friendly. We had a fantastic time!

“The Perfect Place”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Golby's cottage was the perfect location for exploring the Broads and beyond. We were able to come back and relax and enjoy the comforts of the cottage after a day out. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped with everything you need for a self catering break, but also with some excellent extras such as iPod decks and WiFi. The owners Annie and Sean have clearly thought through everything to make it a relaxing stay, including a welcome pack for us and our wee dog! They really went the extra mile. We would thoroughly recommend Golby's and Hickling and we hope to return again.

“Fabulous country cottage.”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Absolutely fabulous cottage. The welcome basket, chocolates on our towels, lavender sprigs on the pillows, milk in the fridge and flowers on the table just makes you feel so welcome. The cottage is so well equipped, the owners really have thought of everything. The local pub in the village is very friendly and the food is wonderful. Sea palling is very close by, this is a beautiful beach. Hickling is a good base. Everywhere we wanted to visit was within easy reach. I would certainly recommend this cottage.
