    Felicity – 27 Sep 2018
    "Second time here in 3 months we love it and will definitely be staying again"
    John – 16 Aug 2018
    "My stay at S83696 was excellent, lovely accommodation, great location and so peaceful and relaxing.The view from the garden of barn owls flying low over the common was just magic. Shotesham village was so peaceful and although I could not take my dogs into the local pub there was a nice area to sit outside in the late afternoon/early evening and enjoy a pint.Host of nice walks right on your doorstep.Would not hesitate to recommend the cottage and location to others."
    Jessica – 10 Aug 2018
    "Absolutely fantastic open-plan lodge for two. Superbly furnished with everything high quality including a well-supplied kitchen. The owners are very nice - they give you a warm welcome (including a hamper!) and are on hand if you need anything, but otherwise give you lots of space and privacy. Beautiful private garden and lodge are set in rural Norfolk. There are 6 circular walks in the village, and acres of countryside to explore. Tesco is only 12 minutes away for supplies (we got a delivery on our first day). A wonderful special place. Thank you so much to the owners for kitting this lodge out with quality furniture, electrical items, and kitchen supplies - so many places fill holiday lets with cheap stuff that looks good but doesn't do the job - it's not fun cooking with cheap supermarket implements! Lovely luxurious Dorma duvet and sheets, John Lewis towels, some vintage furniture etc. Thank you!"
    Jonathan – 29 Jul 2018
    "A well presented retreat. Very comfortable. The owner was cheerful and friendly. Village shop not far away and Tescos just on the edge of Norwich. A super stay."
    Katherine – 21 Jul 2018
    "We loved the immediate area. It was great being able to walk the dog on the common, the pub was good although not dog friendly, which was a pity.The barn was well furnished although we did get a little fed up of washing the only two mugs, a couple more would be good. The freezer desperately needed defrosting, one door completely frozen shut.The courtyard was private but would benefit from a little pruning to open up the views and give a little more sun.Overall we had a great stay in a delightful village, so peaceful and quiet."
    Felicity – 14 Jul 2018
    "Beautiful cottage, we will definitely be booking again!"
    Kay – 10 Jul 2018
    "if you're looking for a rustic retreat, this is it. Not so keen on the open plan bathroom, although understand the owner is already on the case."
    Linda – 26 Jun 2018
    "S83696 is in a very quiet village with a pub, where we had a very good lunch. There is a small shop just 1 1/2 miles away in the next village which we used. There are 6 circular walks from or near the cottage, we did 5 of them with our dog a Labrador. The people in the village we met are very friendly. The Lodge is very comfortable, and very nice welcome pack was left for us. Would recommend this Lodge, and we would stay there again."
    Catherine – 15 Apr 2018
    "S83696 is beautifully appointed and well equipped. The owners include a tray of goodies on arrival and extras, such as slippers, to make it feel more luxurious than the average cottage. The cottage is situated in a peaceful village location perfect for a relaxing break."
    Ben – 10 Apr 2018
    "Great cottage thank you!!"
    Samantha – 4 Mar 2018
    "S83696 is fabulous but the non-private bathroom is not. The little touches by the owners re food/toiletries are generous gestures. Being snug with a log fire in winter is marvellous. Listening to music whilst savouring a good meal is restful. However everything perfect is overshadowed by the open plan bathroom. Sorry"
