    In short, we loved the Gig House and loved Happisburgh and the immediate area around it. We only did a short Friday to Monday break but were blessed by unseasonably good February weather. The house itself is ideal for 2 people, a quirky cottage with 2 main areas; downstairs a well equipped functional kitchen area and upstairs a giant bedroom with an en-suite showeroom...all fronted by a single floor to ceiling window that makes up the main frontage to the property. The Gig house has all the items you could need plus an additional mini-library of books and DVD's if you need them. We found the bed a little hard for us, but that's purely personal taste. When we arrived there was milk in the fridge and two very nice fruit scones with accompanying jam and clotted cream......a really nice welcome touch. Would we stay here again? Absolutely and we've already recommended it to 3 other couples!

    Lovely accommodation, comfortable and tastefully furnished. We had a January holiday for quiet rest and gentle activities and this suited the bill. Not great if you’re looking for activities and nightlife but beach and cliff walks are lovely - oh, and there is a good pub with decent meals.

    Wonderful accommodation in a great area. Excellent walks along the coast and the seals at Horsey were captivating. Icing on the cake was the warm welcome in the local pub. Would highly recommend a visit to the Gig House.

    Cottage very comfortable and hosts were lovely, it is definitely a place to just chill & not get disturbed by emails or WhatsApp. And a great place to walk for miles.

    There was not a thing the owner had not thought about in her cottage resulting in a wonderful memorable holiday.

    My wife and I totally enjoyed our time at the gig house. Clean and well equipped. Such a friendly village and we felt greatly received everywhere we went. We will definitely be returning.

    This cottage is a little gem, and was perfect for us and our chihuahua. We had a cream tea left for us and because it was Easter, the owner bought over a basket of little chocolate eggs for us. It was perfect.
