The cottage is a good base to visit the seals, Great Yarmouth horse racing, the broads for a boat trip, poppylands food which has a dads army theme and menu and many more. Cottage was very clean and cosy and secure for our little dog. The greyhound pub very popular with good food and friendly staff . Locals also friendly
The cottage is located just off a quiet road near the centre of Hickling. It was therefore very quiet and peaceful. Hickling is a small village so only has 1 shop which is located in a pub that is reasonably near by - just about walkable (at about half an hour walk). that pub (The Pleasure Boat inn has a good location but fairly limited food. The Greyhound is much closer and has a much wider variety of food and is very good. We visited the nearby nature reserve at Hicking Broad and was able to take a guided bird-watching boat trip which was interesting and fun. We also visited the nearby beaches of sea Palling and Horsey - both very good - sandy and seals in the water at Horsey. The cottage is fairly small but very clean, well equipped and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
An ideal base for enjoying the Norfolk Broads and surrounding area. Wifi reception excellent and there was a mobile signal too - other areas have been a little patchy. Garden delightful - a perfect place to "stand and stare". Thanks Jo and Phil
We booked the cottage for the week leading up to Easter. It was fully as described, offering superb facilites in a lovely village. All the equipment worked well, with clear instructions as to its use. The garden was reasonably-sized, fully enclosed and very tidy. Communication from the owners was clear and thorough and the welcoming pack for people and dog was a very nice touch. Thoroughly recommended.
An extremely well equipped cottage, tastefully decorated, where everything is provided for. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The underfloor heating was an absolute triumph. The house is close to some lots of beaches and a seal colony. Perfect for days out with the kids.
