Excellent location for a family holiday. Beautiful setting. Nicola from Scarborough (04 August 2017)
The position of this cottage was idyllic!! . however we felt the bathrooms do need some up dating. There was helicopters flying overhead several times a day every day. when one flew over as soon as we arrived we thought nothing of it but when it became a regular thing it was very annoying. they were before 7am and 4 before 8am sometimes. and there was even one in the middle of the night on the last night. this really spoilt our holiday. Customer 2 from Lincs (28 April 2017)
Have not stayed in a more idyllic location - from the bunnies in the large sheltered garden to the willows hanging over the river bure where we spent many hours messing about in the boat trying to avoid the swan! every so often the bure valley steam train would puff past a couple of fields away - not close enough to be noisy but certainly adding to the magical feel of the place. Plus there are numerous walks from the door, through the churchyard, along the river, past the mill and sluice gates. The cottage itself is very large, with very comfortable seating and beds (something that's surprisingly hard to find in many cottages we've stayed at). it's also ideally located - not far from cromer and with a fantastic children's bookshop just 15 minutes away (the norfolk children's book centre - a must visit if you've got kids!) we felt so rested after our time here and didn't want to leave. Will definitely be booking a return visit - probably more than one! Lynda from Wisbech (14 April 2017)
Oh dear- what an odd property- downstairs I would rate three stars and upstairs just one!. the upstairs flooring is awful- with worn and stained floor boards-easy to get splinters in feet I fear. Two toilets leaked-although the owner acted fairly quickly on that issue. The stairs access is so steep that most adults really need those two bannisters to heave. Themselfs up. So steep they are a danger and if there is a fall then right right down onto the sink cupboard- lovely!. the upstairs area is depressing-there are two seperate lounges downstairs one with adjacent full shower room-why not take the one as a bedroom and block off one of the upstairs bedrooms?. would I recommend this house- sorry -never for whatever age group.... Brian from Marchington Uttoxeter (25 March 2017)
We completely enjoyed our weekend, even after the storm with the fallen tree! the cottage was fabulous, well equipped for all our needs, we would definitely stay again or in one of the owners other properties. Louise from Kent (27 February 2017)
Beautiful setting, very picturesque holiday cottage. Great location for days out to coast or into norwich as everything can be accessed within 30 minutes by car Sarah from Essex (28 October 2016)
Idyllic, peaceful location. Lovely comfortable and well equipped cottage. Spacious garden full of wildlife and surrounded by farmland, river and churchyard. We particularly appreciated the rowing boat - what a lovely addition! Dora from London (02 September 2016)
Perfect for a family holiday. Confirmed Guest (26 August 2016)
We very much appreciated the tranquil country setting of the cottage. it was so quiet with only birdsong and the occasional distant whistle of a locomotive on the bure valley railway. The countryside in may/june looked splendid, full of greenery and blossom and the local lanes were well suited to a walk. the rabbits on the lawn at dawn and dusk were fascinating to watch. such a change from the bustle of a big city. Roger from Sheffield (03 June 2016)
A nice location, although entrance/driveway requires good tidy up, hot water heater not working in shower room downstairs, water tap valves sticking in kitchen so got soaked a few times. Would be great if the pine and conifer outside the bedroom 1 window were cut down, as make bedroom and kitchen dark and would give lovely view of garden. The whole house could do with a deep clean, hence score. Andrew from Camberley (20 February 2016)
Met up with 4 friends at this lovely cottage for a weeks stay. We had wonderful sunny weather for the whole week. It is a very peaceful location, lots of wildlife, rowing boat to use on river at bottom of the garden. It is very spacious inside, well equipped, only downside was steep stairs, and the upstairs shower room is very small. But 6 adults managed very well, all old age pensioners. Shirley from Great Yarmouth (02 October 2015)
Short stay but pretty location & well equipped cottage. Could have done with heating having been on before we arrived. Bathrooms a little too cosy! Karen from Henley (07 September 2015)
As soon as you arrive, walk to the bottom of the garden and spend an hour sat by the river in peace and solitude, watching the sun set and the barn own hunt, you know you are in for a relaxing holiday at this cottage. Utter peace and a time to rest - plenty of space as well. Staircase could be an issue for older people or young children but for everyone else it adds to the charm. Will try to visit again for 2 weeks when able! David from Basingstoke (28 August 2015)
We must have picked the worst week of the summer regarding the weather but in spite of this we had enjoyable times. there is lots to do in norfolk though we were unable to take advantage of the beaches. great location. The setting is superb with the lovely garden and the river at the bottom. we enjoyed the boat and the boys their fishing. good to be able to go for a walk straight from the cottage. found wood burning stove difficult to light. maybe it needs some kindling? oven making strange noises sometimes. Great to have three bathrooms. Thanks very much. Katharine from London (31 July 2015)
Fabulous holiday- 2nd time staying here and was as wonderful this time as the last time!. loved it with every amenity and charm and thoroughly enjoyed our stay..until the next time. Declan from Kent (29 May 2015)
Great location and well equipped would like bigger size bath towels or info to bring my own. Large amount of japanese knot weed I the garden which needs treating and notifying the local authority about as near to water course Susan from Hursey (22 May 2015)
Church cottage is set in a stunningly peaceful location in the river bure. The house is delightful & a very relaxing place to stay. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. I'd definitely stay there again. Steven from London (10 April 2015)
Comfortable, well-equipped cottage in an idyllic location. Just mind your head if you are over six feet tall. Shaun from Swindon (14 March 2015)
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, I just wish we had stayed for longer! Alison from Hatfield (03 November 2014)
Fabulous cottage in a stunning location. We enjoyed a relaxing break, exploring the beautiful surrounding areas and church cottage was a lovely place to return to and watch the wildlife. The house was clean and well maintained, with lots of space. The log fire was a nice touch when the weather turned a little chilly. Our second visit and we will deviate let return for a third. Kirsty from Loughborough, Leicestershire. (20 October 2014)
The cottage is in an idyllic setting and our initial reaction was to fall in love with the place. However, in our opinion, there are a few points that we feel should be addressed:-. 1) the upholstery on the sofas and chairs was faded and dirty and there was a hole (presumably burnt) in the rug in front of the fireplace. 2) the cooker could have done with being larger - the cottage sleeps 6 and it was difficult to make and keep hot any meals that we prepared, particularly at breakfast times. 3) whilst the bed linen and towels were clean, I felt that the bedrooms hadn't been properly cleaned as there were lots of cobwebs (inhabited) in the ceiling corners. 4) when we came to use the toaster, we found that the release handle was broken. This did not prevent us from using the toaster and the cottage owner replaced it with a new toaster within a few days of us reporting the problem. 5) it would have been helpful if some soaps had been placed in the various bathrooms and the ladies would certainly have appreciated a hairdryer. In summary, a beautiful setting but we expected a little bit more for our money. To us, the place just felt a little run down. Rosemary from Bury (10 October 2014)
A lovely cottage in a perfect location. We were a small group, so not sure how noisy it would be if full - wooden doors and metal latches etc. Lovely comfortable lounge and peaceful garden. Extra bonus was the barn owl flying in the field next door each evening. Susan from Canterbury (12 September 2014)
I found the cottage to be charming in appearance, the property was well maintained and clean. The garden was well kept and the trees were well established. The swans at the end of the garden next to the rowing boat on the river added to the rural country life experience. Welch from Orpington (29 August 2014)
Gorgeous cottage in a beautiful location. Would definitely use again. Amanda from Chelmsford (08 August 2014)
Where others have left tea coffee bread etc as a welcome back, disappointingly none were present. The rooms were smaller than expected and the bathrooms a little dated. However, a great location. George from Westgate On Sea (01 July 2014)
Lots of space, inside and out. Comfortable sitting room, spare lounge, not used. Large garden for playing games and boat for trips on river. Nice walks from cottage and friendly swan who brought family to meet us. Bure valley railway easily accesible across fields. Aylsham pretty with good shops and pub/restaurants (try black boy). Steve from Kidderminster (30 May 2014)
A lovely, tidy, well equipped detached cottage in a very quiet setting with some lovely walks and fishing straight from the cottage. All of norfolks attractions are easily accessible from this location. Our young family had a lovely time here and would come again. Jamie from Rayleigh (14 March 2014)
The cottage was very warm and the living room was lovely. We used the wood burner. The garden room was fine with the extra electric heater and the grounds are beautiful. . the bedrooms were adequate but getting out of bed onto rough boards is not great. The are 3 bathrooms, but they are rather cramped and the noise from the toilet in the double bedroom is dreadful. We had to avoid flushing it as much as possible. The cooker was small and misplaced in a much bigger space and the dishwasher was some distance from the sink. Otherwise the kitchen was ok, although we were short of fridge sapace for a xmas break. Considering the week was expensive, I was surprised to find there was no foil, plastic bags or kitchen towels. I had to buy these and additional tolilet paper. I have paid far less for other cottages and always found these were supplied. However there were plenty of dishwasher tablets. . Cathy from London (28 December 2013)
The best thing about church cottage was it's idyllic location - quiet and peaceful and yet accessible to local amenities - only a car drive away. The only criticism we had was the accommodation downstairs far exceeded upstairs - the en-suite and other bathroom was very cramped and the noise when flushing the toilet in the en-suite really needs to be sorted!!! Ruth from Village (04 October 2013)
Great location,fantistic home. Would def stay there again. . Daniel from Wokingham (30 August 2013)
Idyllic location, great facilities within the cottage and beautiful surrounding area! Declan from Folkestone (10 May 2013)
Quiet, spacious, cosy Confirmed Purchaser (03 May 2013)
Lovely cottage. Well appointed and equipped. Owner very pleasant. The main dining/living room is superb and the sofas were very comfortable. We even took the boat out and it was about minus 2 degrees! with the church right next door and illuminated at night the location is one of the best we have stayed at. Aylsham is a short drive away with good shoping facilities and a narrow gauge railway which is great fun. Simon from Bexleyheath (04 January 2013)
Lovely location. Comfortable for short people! clean (apart from cobwebs!). well equipped with good facilities (dishwasher, washing machine & tumble drier all worked). great to be able to use boat. Dina from Sunbury (28 December 2012)
Great location. Grant from London (02 November 2012)
Good location seemed to be within 25 miles of every where we wanted to go, beautiful and so quite very clean and had everything we needed Florence from Grove Park (07 September 2012)
Very cosy, good location for Norwich, the broads and the coast. Customer 37 (July 2012)
Perfect location. Quiet and private. In village but well separated from other properties. Very large flat lawned garden to river - lovely. Views over river and fields beyond. Our party comprised six adults, and facilities were excellent. Customer 38 (June 2012)
Fishing was near impossible at the end of the garden, due to thick weed.Take the path through the Church yard and cross the bridge. Walk for around 10-15mins in the direction of the old mill. Past the mill you will come across a sluice gate. The other side of this is a good stretch of open water. Holds a good head of Roach, Dace and Pike. Also the locals say there are Rainbow trout in this area as well. Best time to fish this was very early in the morning 5.30 ish. Although fishing at the bottom of the garden was very challenging my brother in law did manage to catch a small jack pike on a plug. Local tackle shop we used was in Cromer near the pier. Good shop- always had fresh maggots. Customer 39 (June 2012)
Thoroughly enjoyed the serenity of this rural retreat particularly the abundance of the local fauna. Despite the unseasonal weather for May the cottage was pleasantly warm and cosy at all times. Customer 40 (May 2012)
Lovely location and really enjoyed rowing on the river John from St Albans (16 April 2012)
This has to be the most idyllic, beautiful, gorgeous cottage that we have ever stayed in. I would certainly return time and time again if I could. Will be booking for next year without a doubt. Customer 42 (October 2011)
Excellent location in a wonderful piece of Norfolk countryside. The house is simply furnished but adequate for a holiday stay. Customer 43 (October 2011)
Surprisingly spacious and characterful cottage in beautiful quiet location with a river for fishing and wild life. Pleasant and attentive owner and lots of visitor information available. Please note towels (apart from tea towels) are not provided. Kitchen utensils and equipment plentiful. Customer 44 (October 2011)
Quiet, locals friendly and interesting, fruit trees in garden, good for wildlife, church next door. Customer 45 (September 2011)
Our sixth visit...says it all! Customer 46 (May 2011)
Enjoyed our stay at Church Cottage very much, lots of space, great location and gardens. Would have been nice to have a pub or shop in village, but nearest only about 2 miles away, so not too inconvenient. Would return. Customer 47 (April 2011)
