    “Lovely looking cottage and the host is friendly and helpful.”

    The only downside is the steep stairs - it was made clear in the description that there would be steep stairs, however you don’t realise just how steep until you’re actually at the property. The upstairs bedrooms are not suited to very young children despite having a stair gate at the top of the stairs. It is not suited to old people either. My 2yr old and 7 month old had to stay in my room downstairs - luckily the bedroom is more than big enough to accommodate us all but it was still ...

    The only downside is the steep stairs - it was made clear in the description that there would be steep stairs, however you don’t realise just how steep until you’re actually at the property. The upstairs bedrooms are not suited to very young children despite having a stair gate at the top of the stairs. It is not suited to old people either. My 2yr old and 7 month old had to stay in my room downstairs - luckily the bedroom is more than big enough to accommodate us all but it was still far from ideal. I just simply couldn’t carry my baby up and down the stairs and my 2 year old is too scared to go up and down by herself. I myself had to walk backwards to get down the stairs, and it was difficult getting up and down without holding the stair rail. My in-laws are in their 70s and they also struggled staying in the twin bedroom due to the stairs. Other than that we had a nice stay. The property is in need of a deep clean though. I have a habit of wiping everything down (chairs, tables, handles etc) when I stay somewhere due to my 2 year old touching everything in sight. The wipes were absolutely filthy by the time I was done wiping. There was a substantial amount of dust on shelves, wall art, ornaments etc. Cobwebs on bathroom ceiling. Overall not a bad place to stay, but requires a deep clean and only recommended for couples or families with older children.

NECTON

Swaffham 5 miles; Dereham 6 miles; Norwich 22 miles.

The thriving village of Necton is situated at the heart of Norfolk, between the market towns of Swaffham and Dereham, and hosts a welcoming pub with restaurant, a village store with butcher’s and a post office, whilst an impressive Norman church dominates the village and boasts a beautiful carved oak communion table dating back to 1086 and a wonderful Jacobean pulpit. Visit Bradenham Hall, a fine Georgian house with over 27 acres of beautiful gardens and arboretum, reputed to have been visited by Lord Nelson, or enjoy the infamous Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coastal Path, offering 93 tranquil miles of picturesque Norfolk countryside close by, great for walking, cycling and horse riding. The pretty market town of Dereham is just 6 miles away offering a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants and a local farmers' market every fortnight. Plenty to see and do in this lovely location.
