    Very pretty cottage with a good sized, enclosed garden perfect for a dog and for sitting out in the sun into the evening. It's a very good social cottage, with plenty of spaces to sit together to eat, play games, watch television etc. I loved all the hare ornaments, it felt very much like a home. The location is certainly a retreat. Your closest pint of milk moos at you first thing each morning from the field over the road. We enjoyed drinks at the Spread Eagle, about a mile and a half away in Erpingham and Sunday Lunch at the Three Horseshoes in Melton Constable, about a 20 minute drive away. Lots of single track roads, but they are pretty quiet and have loads of passing spaces, with most other drivers considerate and patient. Pretty countryside and a good location for driving to the Norfolk coast. We were left lots of products in the house to assist with keeping everything hygienic during the pandemic (hand washes, sanitiser, anti-bac spray etc.). We had a lovely relaxing break at Saracen's Retreat.

    Super warm cozy cottage...very rural, quiet and tranquil . Delightful all round but car needed to get out and about with everything you need from shopping to seaside within an eight mile radius and Norfolk never disappoints with endless empty beaches to bustling towns and traditional seaside hot spots. Local shop in aldborough is fantastic and full of everything despite it being mini on the outside, friendly happy staff

    This was our second visit to Saracen's Retreat this year. This beautiful cottage in an idyllic rural location is the ideal getaway for us with peaceful, country strolls directly from the doorstep. We have already decided to book for next year - this time for a fortnight - which says it all: we love it!

    Had a very nice stay. The property had everything you would wish for and more. Extremely cosy and comfortable. Access roads very narrow far too narrow for me sadly.

    We enjoyed our stay here . Away from the hustle and bustle of the city an ideal location to unwind . Many thanks.

    Excellent cottage with lots of space and a superb, fully enclosed garden and wonderfully quiet location. The location was perfect for us as amenities, pubs and beaches easily accessible. Loved the rustic feel but slightly let down by the cleanliness (cooking utensils and pans had to be cleaned before use) and found the beds quite uncomfortable as the mattresses had seen better days. Also no firewood or dishwasher tablets provided. Would definitely like to stay again but only if mattresses were replaced as this did affect our enjoyment quite significantly.
