Having lived our lives near a railway line, we didn't think staying here would be a problem. And it wasn't. The trains just made us feel part of the area and its history. The cottage was so inviting. Clean, spotless, and made one feel we were the first guests to arrive here. In tune with other guests, I'm reluctant to rave about the cottage too much, in case so many people wish to come here, we will not be able to book the weeks we want to! Only scratched the surface of Norfolk on this short visit. We are determined to return, and to this very wonderful location. I tell you all, this is a location you must not miss, and I have been to quite a few!
Our break at Station Cottage was so good we didn't want to leave. Right on the platform - you can check the arrival and departure boards from the sitting room window. Regular trains to watch but not so many as to be intrusive. Railway enthusiasts dream cottage. Nicely furnished, clean, warm and snug with lots of railway books to read. The owners next door are friendly and helpful. Whilst there is parking right outside we used the trains to travel most of the time. Medium sized grocery shop very close and great walks around Damgate Woods. We can't wait to come back.
Had another fabulous week. The cottage was perfect again, and the personal touches were most appreciated. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and all the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Acle is a great place to explore the broads either by car or(as we did) using public transport and walking. Local shops, take aways and pubs all tested this visit and all were excellent. Can't recommend enough, already looking to book next year!
Beautifully converted cottage on a "real" railway station on the Norwich to Gt Yarmouth Wherry line. Owners live next door in the ex-Station Master's house. Very conveniently located for the Broads and the Norfolk coast. Very well furnished and spotlessly clean. Lovely welcome pack of goodies including a scrumptious sponge cake. Fresh flowers also. Pets welcome. Plenty of trains for the enthusiast! Modern TVS in lounge and bedrooms and a vital Wi-Fi link with good speed.
Minor downside was lack of a washing machine, but no problem for a week's stay.
