“Delightful cottage set in beautiful grounds with hottub”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We loved our week here . As a family of Five with a pet dog the cottage met all our needs . Tinkers retreat is spacious and set in beautiful grounds . The hot tub was great and to come in on a cool evening and warmup by the wood burning fire was very relaxing .Good location for visiting both the broads and the seaside .

“Definitely a beautiful retreat”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Me and my husband wanted a quiet place to escape to in Norfolk for a week..... And tinkers retreat is home from home!
From the moment I first contacted Emma to discuss this place the customer service was fabulous. She could not help enough.
Tinkers retreat is absolutely beautiful. On arrival we had a lovely welcome gift of wine, biscuits, milk, tea, etc waiting for us.
The place was immaculately clean.
The outside hot tub was clean with fresh water and a treat to use in the evening.
The location is great, very remote and quiet, and we had sea Palling, Mundesley and Cromer a short drive away.
We will definitely be back next year xx

“beautiful place”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent a week here for our family holiday. A beautiful house, in a lovely quiet location. Couldn't have asked for more.. all the mod cons, and the hot tub was definitely a great bonus. Lovely place to unwind and relax and lots of garden for the children to play. Can't wait to book up and come again.

“Delightful Norfolk Retreat”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I don't very often get around to posting reviews about places we have visited but I just have to make an exception for this delightful property. We visited here for 10 days and found a wonderfully converted coach house that was better than any expectations we could have had!! It is decorated and furnished very tastefully, getting just the right balance between elegant and comfortable. We chose this area so that we could visit and have visit our many friends from all over Norfolk and Suffolk and it worked perfectly. It is totally private and secluded yet within easy reach of the major roads and close to the Broads and the coast. Everything you could possibly want is supplied, even down to kindling and logs for the log burner that we just had to try one night ( there is something about men making fire that they just can't resist !!). Thank you also for the lovely welcome tray that was there for our arrival. If anyone is looking for a property in this area then you should grab this one with both hands - although I don't want it to get too popular as we want to go back . Thanks guys for a wonderful stay..

Ian and Sue - Despite the terrible weather you endured which there is not a lot we can do about, we are delighted that you had such a good time and enjoyed staying at our 'Tinker's Retreat'. Makes all our hard work worth the effort! You are most welcome to return any time you like and I will put an extra 50p in the weather slot machine for you next time. Even if the whole world gets to hear about us, I will always make sure that we fit you in. Emma
