“Great Peaceful Cottage In The Very Beautiful Wensum Valley”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Chrissy and Keith could not have been more welcoming. The complimentary milk and biscuits on arrival were most appreciated. Any issues we encountered were quickly resolved. A typical experience was when we wanted to have a barbecue Chrissy was able to provide a barbecue set for us.

The property was bright, clean and modern with everything you could want in a holiday cottage.

The location was very peaceful and quiet with lots of local wildlife to be seen, yet very close to Sainsburys and other out of town shopping in Longwater and Tesco Norwich Drayton superstore.

We liked access to the pool best.

“Almost Perfect”
Reviewed 30 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Spent two nights at Dove Cottage and it was a delight. Chrissy was the perfect host and two friendly dogs add the finishing touch.
Very nice surroundings and extremely peaceful. Whilst we were not there a great deal, we did enjoy our experience.
The best has to be the double bed; at first glance, it feels and looks quite dated and uncomfortable but get into it and it's like being safe, warm and comfortable in your grandma's spare room, we had the best nights sleep away from home that we've had in a long time.
As with everything in life, nothing is perfect and I have to say that the (floor) tiled areas could do with under floor heating and the wet room does not drain properly, leaving the floor awash with soapy residue and slippery even after mopping. However, these comments are purely personal and not meant to put anyone else off. It's just the difference between a stay in summer compared to winter.
We would not hesitate to recommend the cottage to our friends and would definitely book again for the summer.

The cottages are very clean, comfortable and well equipped , Dove cottage is wheelchair
friendly and no problems were found,The hosts were always available to make sure our stay was a good one, overall a very restful few days and would stay again
