“Excellent, Relaxing Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The cottage is superb and very relaxing. We slept really well. Everything is provided right down to relaxing music playing on entering.
Excellent kitchen utensils. The Locals/ Neighbours are really friendly.
The owners Shaun and Annie go the extra mile and even call to check all is well.
We have stayed in many cottages but by far this is the best for location, facilities within the cottage, the cottage itself and its owners.
We cannot recommend highly enough. We will be back. But for a fortnight next time.

“Excellent holiday cottage”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A wonderful stay at Goleby's in April. The cottage was ideal for ourselves and our two dogs. They loved the underfloor heating as we did too especially since we had a sudden icy arctic blast of weather.
The area is fantastic and we loved exploring the nearby beaches and ambling around the Broads. Followed by some delicious meals in the local dog friendly pubs -The greyhound and the Pleasure Boat.
Our first visit to the area but we definitely hope to return to Goleby's Cottage again.

“Quaint ,quintessentially English Country Cottage in the perfect setting.”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from a perfect two weeks holiday in Goleby's Cottage. The welcome was so well thought out with gifts for us and our two dogs. A lovely bottle of wine and heart shaped treats for the dogs, along with a luxury selection of teas and coffees, biscuits, bath oils, soaps, hand and body lotions, to name a few. Chocolates and sprigs of lavender in the bedrooms too. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch and fresh water set out for our dogs was just what was needed after their journey. The attention to detail, and thoughtfulness of Annie and Sean, made us feel so at home, right from the start.
Hickling is a friendly village which is well positioned for visits to the Broads and also the wonderful beaches. We found Sea Palling beach, the best, for great walks with the dogs.
Weather was perfect too. All in all a wonderful holiday, which we will most certainly recommend.

“Dream retreat”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The cottage was so pretty and peaceful, and very well equipped! The owners had thought of everything!
Hickling is a very lovely village with friendly locals, and the near by beaches were fantastic.
We had a couple of meals at the local pub which was just a couple of minutes walk from the cottage.
We had our teen and an 11 yr old daughters with us and they loved their bedroom! And didn't get bored once!
Will be booking a break at Goleby's again.

Just spent a fantastic week at Golebys Cottage at Hickling The cottage itself was very clean and had everything you could possibly need and the owners added extra personal touches.
Definitely recommend the local pub - The Greyhound. Plenty of things to do in the area, boating on the Broads, the beaches (we were lucky with the weather), canoeing, walking with the dog and the steam train at Bure Valley.
