    A wonderful cosy and welcoming cottage. Christmas decorations were a lovely surprise

    Although we try different areas every year, if we were to come back to this area, we would have no hesitation in staying at Greenbank Cottage again. It is definitely one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Bernie and Fred were as friendly and as helpful as you could want and it would be difficult to find any fault with the cottage. A bit sparse for local amenities but if you don't mind travelling a bit and want peace and quiet, then this is the place to stay.

    Lovely cottage everything you could wish for, comfortable spotless and very well equipped. Owners very helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Private garden and fishing just over the quiet road way.

    Two weeks since our last visit to Green Bank Cottage and what a wonderful week we had there, again. The sun shone, the fish were biting, the tranquility as always was great. An autumn break there would be amazing, the last embers of a beautiful sunny summer. Hazy sunrises across a misty river, bright clear days and cozy, warm evenings in by twinkly lit fire grates. So lovely. Lovely cottage and gardens, very well looked after. So comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing and peaceful holiday, more than a home from home. Fab hosts are very friendly and helpful. So now all that is left to do is book my next year visits to Green Bank Cottage.

    We had a warm welcome from the owners when we arrived. The cottage was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. It was in a very peaceful setting with a river across the road ( ideal for the keen angler). The town of Downham Market was only a couple of miles away providing several supermarkets, takeaways, pubs and restaurants as well as local shops. The cottage is ideally situated for visiting the other attractions such as Cambridge, Ely, Kings Lynn etc. We would definitely return to Greenbank Cottage again and would recommend it to our friends and family too. No complaints at all.

    We were really happy with this cottage. It is an idyllic location, overlooking water and with a lovely garden to sit out in at the back. A delicious cake was waiting for us when we arrived.

    BOOK YOUR HOLIDAY HERE NOW IT IS AMAZING, this cottage is gorgeous, very clean and cosy. You will have fab sleeps as the beds are so comfy. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the pretty, well kept garden and lovely comfy summer house. Riverside walks with the dog and watching deer in the field in the evening is a treat. CONGRATULATIONS THE HOSTS ON RECEIVING THE CUSTOMER AWARD 2018, so well deserved, great hosts. Super fast internet is really good. Can recommend Dents for Sunday lunch, bit expensive but very worth it, about 5 mins away. Reeds in Downham Market is very reasonable, good for hot meals, snacks or just cake and coffee while shopping. Fishing outside the cottage is also good and mixed varied bags have been caught. Needless to say, again we loved our visit to Green Bank and are already booked for later in the year too. Have now lost count of the number of holidays we have spent there, it is just so relaxing and restful. Can thoroughly recommend.

    Lovely stay at spotless cottage. Kitchen very well equipped but cooker could do with an upgrade. Downstairs bathroom and toilet was more of an issue than we thought it be, but we are of a certain age! Also, we were aware of this when we booked, so not a complaint. Owners next door not intrusive but always helpful if you have any questions. Great fishing location, nice private garden and lovely summer house.

    Just the right size. Everything that could be needed in the kitchen was there. Some kitchens are not well equipped. Lovely decor. Great beds which again is not always the case. The only problem was the fog but that was not Bernie's fault!
