“Wonderful and relaxing stay”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Andy and Amanda have created a delightful haven. The Retreat was clean and very spacious and my two young children loved the animals, especially the baby rabbits that we almost came home with.

We came across this accommodation by chance and will certainly be returning, which seems to be the norm for those that come across this this accommodation.

“Family Weekend Break”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Stayed for two nights with children and grandparents. Great location - anywhere in Norfolk is no more than 45 mins away. Good barn conversion, nicely decorated, clean and plenty of room. Well fitted kitchen and we also found a Chinese that delivered. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

“Fabulous Family Retreat”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a fantastic 5 days staying at the Retreat, only wished we could have stayed longer. Amanda and Andy were so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and made us feel at home from the moment we pulled up.
A very spacious accommodation for 4 adults and two young children and spotless too. Everything in the accommodation was provided from booster seat, for our Two year old granddaughter, to children's crockery and cutlery, A very thoughtful touch.
Our Five year old granddaughter was in her element feeding, petting the animals with Amanda. She also helped to collect eggs for our breakfast.
Ideal location. I couldn't fault anything just absolutely fantastic from booking to leaving.
Would noit hesitate to recommend. Thank you so much Amanda and Andy

“A little bit of paradise”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely Amanda who showed us around our cottage and the farm. She also advised us of things to do in the area and where to eat. The cottage was converted stables and was immaculate throughout with everything we could possibly need. The surrounding farm was brilliant with chickens roaming around, sheep, goats, rabbits and emus. Brilliant if you have children as my daughter helped Amanda feed them every morning. There was also a lovely walk through fields towards a lake which was full of wildlife and you really did feel like you were in the middle of nowhere. The location was a good base and not far at all from Norwich. We would recommend trips to Cromer, Sherringham and Wroxham (the broads) but the best beach by far was Wells next to the sea. It was lovely to just come back on an evening and relax with a drink in the courtyard. I will be recommending Riverside farm to friends and family as we believe it is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday.
