In need of tlc Frances from Manchester (30 June 2017)
The cottage was adequate with everything you need however the road was a nightmare. its a b road with 30 mph but traffic was constant and speeding not very relaxing. this should be mentioned on the website for this property. Jenny from Hungerford (07 April 2017)
Good brake, we had slightly disappointing weather David (21 October 2016)
A well equipped, warm and comfortable cottage. We were welcomed with a supply of tea, coffee milk and biscuits, a thoughtful touch. The garden is well planned with a secure fence and the summer house is useful for changing shoes and drying clothes. It is a very quiet location with a variety of interesting walks close by and beautiful scenery. If you love norfolk, this is the cottage for you!. the only negative point is: access. The cottage is situated within a 30mph speed restriction but apparently few motorists take any notice and extreme care is required when entering and exiting the property. This aside, we had a very enjoyable and relaxing break including our dog who settled in as if he owned the place! Margaret from Norwich (14 October 2016)
Though a very pleasant cottage and well located for exploring the beautiful north norfolk area, the traffic on the road was an issue. It is impossible to walk from the cottage without having to dodge fast moving traffic. Laurence from Basingstoke (23 September 2016)
Fantastic location with easy access to coastal walks and beaches. . a comfortable, well-equipped cottage. we particularly appreciated the provision of good reading lights in living room and bedrooms. . we were not particularly bothered by the noise of passing cars (mentioned by some in the visitors' book), but getting the car out onto the road was always rather exciting.. . provision of wifi - if possible - would overcome general connectivity problems. we don't use tv but audio quality on dvd player was poor and we had to use our own speakers. Confirmed Guest (16 September 2016)
Cottage was comfortable and a nice size, although it could do with a good sweep to get rid of the cobwebs. . the downside was the proximity of the road - when booking we were aware that it was situated on a road, but were unprepared for the noise, volume and speed of traffic that uses the road. Elaine from Stafford (26 August 2016)
Description of the cottage failed to mention the proximity of a very busy road with traffic speeding past where there was no pavement or good visibility. north creake was delightful but did not like the accommodation being that it was right by the speed restriction sign which was totally ignored by passing vehicles. dogs and children are permitted at the property but believe this to be inappropriate. Jill from Buckinghamshire (19 August 2016)
We had a most enjoyable stay at little pharoah, very relaxing and comfortable. lovely location and would definitely consider staying there again. Pamela from Coventry (13 May 2016)
Good location for our needs. pity how busy the road is at peak times. Lesley from Essex (22 April 2016)
Good location for getting out and about to favourite destination such as wells, titchwell and cley. Cottage comfy enough with everything needed. The road it's located on my s crazy but the owner does give plenty of warning about this. My only concern was the mount of dust and dog hair in the lounge. I knew the. Outage welcomed dogs but the hair was excessive and everything dusty. Clear this one thing up and I would give it top marks. Toni from Birmingham (25 March 2016)
Location is ideal for us, we love the norfolk coast and the cottage had everything we needed, was comfortable and warm. Dawn from Suffolk (07 December 2015)
Nice being dog friendly , good location for croma , wells nexthesea , hunstanton , lovely cottage with secure garden for the dog , only problem road very busy , only a country lane but traffic doesn't slow down even though its a 30 limit , Stephen from Lincoln (06 November 2015)
Our 5th visit . ideally suited for north norfolk bird watching David from South East London (23 October 2015)
A pleasant place to stay - very cosy. David from Chesterfield (16 October 2015)
Very well equipped cottage with good sized rooms. Lovely rural views. Busy road at front of cottage. Cottage ready for end of season decoration and deep clean. Some ornaments and control knobs for cooker and microwave needed cleaning. Small pretty enclosed garden. Jan from East Yorkshire (09 October 2015)
Lovely comfortable cottage, cosy and warm. Dog was at home straight away. Road outside very busy and many people do not adhere to the speed limit as mentioned by many visitors. Great care is needed, especially on the way out. Confirmed Guest (02 October 2015)
Little pharaoh was a lovely cottage, very well equipped and cosy. There was many cobwebs on the beams and ceilings but this was a minor point. The only other comment was that there was a notice saying don't leave your dog unattended in the cottage. This seems unreasonable if as a couple we wanted to eat out in the evening. In the house book it says dogs can be left in the kitchen area. As there was no catch on the kitchen/lounge door, our dog quickly opened the door and was able to roam the cottage. I see in the comments book another guest said exactly the same thing in 2012 and the need to have a catch. I'm therefore not confident that anything will be done about this. That said I would definitely recommend this cottage and the beautiful area to our friends/family Charles from Harpenden (25 September 2015)
Good Dev from Chapel En Le Frith (04 September 2015)
Very comfortable, great character and surprisingly spacious. generally well equipped, a few extras to make self catering easier (baking trays for example) would have made that element excellent. cleaning could have been better, lots of knick-knacks on windowsills were grubby and crockery a bit sticky, but oven spotless and bedrooms and bathroom clean so overall fine. garden room/summer house would have been useful if only for drying washing on a threatening day, but smelled very smoky so we wouldn't use it - this obviously the fault of previous tenants but should have been aired. . location excellent for exploring a lovely area. Linda from Brecon (07 August 2015)
Excellent cottage. Pity about the parking and access to the road with drivers who have little idea about a 30 mph. Speed limit. John from Southend On Sea (17 July 2015)
We had a lovely easter holiday, the cottage was in a great location for exploring the beautiful north norfolk coast. The cottage was clean, cosy and well equipped. Plenty of room for a family of 4 and a dog. Georgina from Stoke In Trent (10 April 2015)
Great place thanks; broadband wifi would increase the value of renting there. Simon from Grafham (31 October 2014)
Only suggestion is that the lighting in the living area is too dim. Colin from Brighton (24 October 2014)
We had a very enjoyable time. The cottage has everything in it for a comfortable stay. it is in a great location for getting out to holkham and wells beaches. The dog had a fabulous time and we enjoyed visiting the wells beach dog friendly cafe. access in and out of the parking would be simpler if drivers obeyed the 30 mph. Speed limit. John from Shoeburyness (17 October 2014)
We read other reviews about the cottage and saw the concerns about the road. We live on a very busy a road and thought it wouldn't be a problem. However it was not great, the difference being the cars were whizzing past the window only feet away . our concerns also lay in the dustiness and clutter of the cottage. If you are going to have so many vases of artificial flowers and ornaments, dust them! the silk flowers were dirty and dusty, although the real low point was the stuffed duckling by the kitchen worktop (offensive in its own right) covered in dust and dirt. Also, as you open the door, the smell of the kitchen hits you! don't know if it is old food smells or drains , but it took some getting used to. The maintenence book showed many people had complained about the broken toilet seat, yet it was still broken. Many cottages we go to have a very informative welcome file etc, this one was just basic to fulfill requirements. The bottom line was, it felt unloved, outdated and minimal in effort. The area was nice but the cottage was a let down. Gaynor from Southport (05 September 2014)
Little pharoah was an extraordinary retreat; near a lovely abbey that had been converted to a gorgeous foodhall, a wonderful glass blowing studio that we loved, the ocean was nearby and it had its own little garden for the kids. Great spot we will return for sure. Sarita from London (21 February 2014)
Great location as far as being able to access the coastal road and villages however this cottage is situated on a very busy road so if you are looking for peace, quiet and tranquility - this is not the cottage for you. . the parking space to the side of the cottage is big enough to take two cars albeit tight but due the speed to which the passing traffic goes - you need to be very quick and confident at reversing your car into the space. Jan from Hythe Southampton (14 February 2014)
The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfotable. . unfortunately, it is located immediately beside a busy 'b' road with high speed trafic making it dangerous to access, a pont noted by all in the visitor's book but something that the owners are powerless to rectify. Confirmed Purchaser from Bedfordshire (28 December 2013)
Lovely cottage, downside was not advisable to walk into the village at night due to lack of footpath on a fairly busy road. Maureen from Stafford. Staffs (18 October 2013)
Cottage well equipped, comfortable. Nice enclosed area at the side. For a dog. Central to visit most of the area. Valerie from Selston. Notts (11 October 2013)
Comfortable cottage in a nice village, within easy access to many areas of interest. Rosalin from Coventry (23 August 2013)
The location of the cottage is ideal for exploring the north norfolk coast, although the road outside is a little busy and can be hazardous trying to reverse into the drive. The cleanliness left a little bit to be desired and there was a strong smell of wet dog, there was also expired food in the cupboards(rice & pasta) Gavin from Newcastle (16 August 2013)
Best cottage we have stayed in(and had quite a few!) - very comfortable - well maintained and had most of everything needed - and very clean Jody from Sleaford (28 Jun 2013)
The cottage itself is excellent, well equipped lovely and warm with a nice hot shower and a very comfortable bed. very clean Linda from Cleobury Mortimer (24 May 2013)
A lovely little property and dog friendly. Quite central to everything in the area. Pub not far down the road - nice grub but quite pricey. We went just before xmas, nice and cosy not cold at all. Smokeless coal much better to use as its cleaner and burns longer! Settee was quite old and hard. Bed very comfy. Shower wasnt that powerful but ok. Customer 36 (December 2010)
