Rather remote but a very peaceful location with a wonderful garden which our dogs loved. Very well equipped with absolutely everything we needed. Easy travelling distance to local towns of Cromer, Wells Next the Sea, Sherringham and Holt. Great for a 'get away from it all holiday' but a fair distance from shops and restaurants.

On a very wet Tuesday I read and made notes on the 2003---2018 visitors book. My "article" appears in the 2019-+ visitors book. Of the 250 entries(2003-18) only 4% would NOT return 44% adored it and promised more visits(several have already done so) 52% were generally happy with their experience,despite the odd moan General cleanliness(cobwebs,spidRead moreers and the like) was the major moan Industrial cleaning Company once per month would solve the problem The peacefulness of this location is idyllic Hide

Beautifully restored and extended cottage in a very quiet and peaceful rural location. Lovely walking country on the doorstep - there's a superb 5 mile off-road walk all the way to the coast going over Wiveton Down. Open-plan layout but still cosy, warm and welcoming. Lots to keep you entertained in bad weather - games, DVDs, TV streaming services,Read more sound system which connects to your own equipment, huge selection of books. The ideal secluded getaway for a couple. Hide

Lovely, peaceful, location with a beautiful "wild" garden and adjacent woodland area. Please be aware that the garden is NOT enclosed and surrounding fields are occupied by pigs. If holidaying with your dog, you will need to keep it on-lead. The School House is well equipped, comfortable, warm and quirky. We'd be happy to return.

This is a lovely friendly old school house in a secluded location in a sleepy rural village. It is light and airy and was perfect for us two plus our two doggies. Very near the coast for lots of great walks. We had a glorious week.

We had a wonderful break here, found the bed extremely comfortable, and the accommodation contained everything you could possibly need and more. We loved being at the end of a lane near fields and the grounds were amazing for the dogs (not entirely secure). Thankfully a fan was supplied for the bedroom as we had glorious weather.
