    Very clean and tidy, cute cottage with all the essentials. Friendly owner who left wine and chocolates as welcome gift. Lovely garden and open fire made it cosy. Info about local area would have been useful, mattresses on the firm side (we found them uncomfortably so!) but excellent value for money. We would definitely return.

    This is a lovely little cottage. A great location for cycling, boating and the beach. Lots of interesting things to do and places to visit. The cottage is clean and comfortable with a lovely, private garden at the back. It has everything you need for a busy, fun, self catering holiday. The village shop is close by, open long hours and is good for basics.

    A very nice place to stay. We really loved the fantastic garden because it was so quite and there was plenty of space for my son and I to play football. Catfield is also a fantastic broadland village to stay in as it is near all the boat yards, and with a nice supermarket just up the road at Stalham. And is also near a park. Norwich is within easy reach by using the Postwick park and ride just off the A47.
