Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at orchard cottage. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. Rosemary from Derby (29 July 2017)
We found orchard cottage to be a bit smaller than we anticipated but still enjoyed our stay. The welcome was very friendly and there were provisions for a nice cup of tea on our arrival and a lovely bottle of wine. Absolutely loved sitting watching the wild life in the orchard at the back with the cheeky squirrel. The wheatsheaf pub and restaurant close by served excellent food and was very welcoming. . would definitely consider going back. Jean from Sutton-In-Ashfield (08 July 2017)
A lovely cottage. Great location. Well appointed. Ian was very welcoming and helpful. Variety of wildlife in the garden, owls, squirrels, pheasants and a partridge to name a few. The garden was a good size although a tad overgrown but the dogs didn't mind. All of the rooms were a good size, well laid out. Felt very homely. David from Glossop (17 June 2017)
Lovely cottage and host would recommend Amanda from London (29 April 2017)
A superb location and a delightful property. Peaceful and surrounded by lots of greenery and wildlife. Stephen from London (15 April 2017)
A great cottage . with nice friendly owners. The cotrage has everything you could need and the photographs are a bit miss leading as it is larger than it looks. It's log burner is fantastic. The only fault I could find with the wifi did not exist in orchard cottage other than that it is brilliant Paul from Halesowen (25 February 2017)
The people were really helpful and the cottage is a fantastic conversion in a lovely spot but the poor internet access would mean we would never use it again but that would not put off everyone. We tend to stay usually in villages that have a pub and a shop but we were aware lower gresham has neither so everything involved car journeys. Geoffrey from Oxford (18 February 2017)
Great cottage very clean and comfortable owner very helpful and friendly. The little extras much appreciated Keith from Battle (17 December 2016)
Lovely cottage, well equipped and clean. great for dogs with an enclosed garden. owners exceptionally friendly and helpful. thoroughly recommend it. we shall definitely be booking again. Rita from Sudbury (26 November 2016)
Lots of positives - just one negative that was easily dealt with. The positives are that the property felt new, was well equipped and very clean. The negative was an unpleasant smell on arrival. After using the toilet, sink and shower in both ensuites, the smell completely went. Perhaps all it took was to fill all the ubends with water to block any septic tank smells? Alan from Gloucester (27 August 2016)
Orchard cottage is a beautiful property, equipped with everything you could need, it was very clean and very well maintained. the location was so quiet and peaceful the only sound was of the birds - heaven. . there are two pubs with restaurants about 2 miles away and it is only a short drive to cromer. I would highly recommend this property and would hire it again. Anne from Manchester (07 May 2016)
My wife & I with our lab floyd loved the cottage along with its enclosed garden. The cottage was very comfortable and spacious. The owner, ian met us soon after our arrival to ensure we had settled in and made us feel very welcome. Ian & lily who live on site were not intrusive, but were very helpful, a pleasure to have met them along with their dogs poppy & holly and the variety of wildlife in the vicinity . . would stay there again Peter from Stevenage (16 April 2016)
We had a lovely restful stay in orchard cottage, the property is beautifully presented, nicely spacious with lots of character and is lovely and clean. The small farm feeling is absolutely delightful and my daughter loved looking at the resident chickens and sheep. The location 3 miles from sheringham is perfect and access to the beautiful north norfolk coast couldn't be easier. Ian and lily are helpful and friendly, I recommend the property very highly. Paul and fiona. Paul from Ipswich (09 April 2016)
This cottage is well equipped and clean and the owners are always very helpful. the garden is good for our two dogs. orchard cottage is well situated for exploring the north norfolk coast. Kath from Newton Stewart (12 March 2016)
The hosts lily and ian underline the care and attention we enjoyed at orchard cottage. Not surprised to read that some guests had been back six times. Could not fault it even if we wanted to do so. A wonderful holiday. Mervyn from Cambridge (05 March 2016)
Excellent location for peace and quiet but close drive to local seaside locations. However if you require internet access this is poor and patchy. This is the only downside. Colin from Chesterfield (05 December 2015)
Orchard cottage is a cosy, comfortable retreat with an enclosed garden - ideal for our two dogs. it is conveniently situated to access all major roads in the area yet retaining a rural serenity. eggs laid by the owners hens went from nest to plate in one hour - delicious. we all thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in spite of the weather. Ruth from Sawbridgeworth (10 October 2015)
Fantastic place, from getting there and finding milk in the fridge for a cup of tea and a bottle of wine for the night was just the start of a fantastic weeks stay. Tony from Leeds (22 August 2015)
A beautifully clean, peaceful cottage, very well equipped. A large garden perfect for our puppy. Lovely, helpful owners and we were able to buy fresh eggs each morning from them too, perfect. Emily from Northampton (15 August 2015)
Fantastic holiday in a fantastic location. The property was superb inside and out. Highly recommended. Geoff from Sudbury (08 August 2015)
This is our third visit to orchard cottage. it was good to be back as the last two years we tried a different area. the large gardens and local footpaths are amazing for our dogs. lily and ian always make us welcome and the cottage is clean, well equipped and comfortable. it is also ideally situated to discover the north norfolk coast and we are now well refreshed after a relaxing week. Kath from Newton Stewart (21 March 2015)
What a lovely cottage set in lovely surroundings , everything was perfect, and the owners were so welcoming , will definatly stay there again. Lynn from Dartford (07 February 2015)
Brilliant location, really handy for beaches and some wonderful national trust properties. We enjoyed great days out and some lovely meals as well. The cottage was really warm and cosy and ever so quiet. It had everything we needed, and the garden was great for our 2 dogs, as was the immediate surrounds for quick dog walks before breakfast. We will definitely come back. The only thing that would have given it the perfect 10 was a bath, but that was only a minor point. Having 2 bathrooms was definitely a bonus. Wish we wwere still there and can't wait to come back. Andrea from Wirksworth (06 December 2014)
A wonderful cottage with a warm welcome from ian and lilly, the little extras make it very special. Mitzi from Sleaford (18 October 2014)
Good situation having easy access to norfolks north coast. The cottage was peaceful and relaxing. It was ideal for our party of three adults and a small dog. There are lovely views of the orchard and it's wildlife. Gillian from Rotherham (23 August 2014)
If you want a quiet holiday in a top quality property beautifully located then you have found it. we booked again for next year immediately on our return. Ian from Ashbourne (16 August 2014)
A lovely place to stay. the cottage was very well equipped, lots of extra little touches and ian and lily were very welcoming and hospitable. would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to family and friends. Debbie from Salisbury (26 July 2014)

Fabulous! beautiful cottage in a lovely location. Welcoming owners. Ideal for the dog, too. Sylvia from Lancashire (08 March 2014)

A very nice cottage in a quiet location with a private garden where we had breakfast each morning as we were very lucky with the weather. the owners were very helpful and we would highly recommend this venue. Pat from Totternhoe, Bedfordshire (27 Jul 2013)
Excellent cottage all you could wish for and more.ian and lily could not do enough for us. We would love to go back again Jane from Grantham (04 May 2013)
Beautifully clean and presented cottage with a myriad of lovely touches; everything one could need to enjoy their stay. The whole site is delightful, well thought out, includes dog walk facility and has lots of space and privacy. This is by far one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. The owners are delightful and do all they can to ensure your stay gets off to the right start and continues that way all week. I have no hesitation about giving this cottage the highest possible accolade. Dave from Dumfries (16 February 2013)
Great layout. Very clean and modern. Access to orchard. . comic squirrel stealing peanuts! Anthony (15 September 2012)
Everything was good Confirmed Purchaser (08 September 2012)
Very helpful owners. Customer 40 (June 2012)
Wow! at last a cottage where your pets are made to feel as welcome as you are and the orchard is brilliant for them to run around in. The cottage was comfy, with good lighting (not usually so) and in a lovely peacful area. Customer 41 (June 2012)
Excellent accommodation, well equipped, and with comfortable beds and furnishings. Owners available and immediately responsive when there was a minor hitch with the property. Central position to access all areas of Norfolk. Refreshments, including bottle of wine added to the warm welcome. Tesco home delivery functions in the area. Chickens and sheep a delight for our baby grand-daughter. Customer 42 (June 2012)
Single storey, great enclosed small orchard accessible via patio doors. perfect for early morning/last thing at night for dogs. loved watching the pheasants roosting in the trees/on heldge. excellent facilities. with 2 greyhounds we always go for a "sleeps 4". 4 people + 2 large dogs would have been a bit cramped for us. . stable type kitchen door enabled us to pack car each day without dogs getting upset. hanging over the door in the morning sun with a cup of tea watching chaffinchs in the tree - magic. . . info on local walks. wine and a vase of flowers to greet us on arrival - lovely, much appreciated, touch. Joanna from Tavistock (28 April 2012)
This is our second visit to Orchard Cottage and we love its situation and the large garden for our two dogs. It is convenient, well equipped and comfortable. Customer 44 (March 2012)
The grounds for the cottage were wonderful giving a beautiful welcome on arrival - though have to admit, due to the windy narrow roads we were thankful for the sat nav to find our way there... The property owners were extremely friendly and a lovely "welcome package" was waiting for us when we arrived. Customer 45 (March 2012)
Excellent hosts everything was thought of for our welcoming arrival. Great location. Customer 46 (March 2012)
We were overwhelmed by the cleanliness, comfort and pleasant surroundings & very helpful owners - who even cleared away the snow!! It was the small added extras too that surprised us such as fresh flowers in the dining area & main bedroom, tea coffee sugar milk & biscuits for our arrival, continuous supply of logs for the log burner and boy did we need that with the temperature below zero! Just cannot praise the whole experience enough totally and utterly excellent in every way we didn’t want to come home. Congratulations to Ian & Lily. Customer 47 (February 2012)
Friendly and very welcoming hosts. Great garden for dogs to run around in. Customer 48 (October 2011)
It was our first holiday alone with our grandchildren, so we were looking for a home from home property. Orchard Cottage provided that for us all! The children loved their cosy bedroom and it was a bonus having an ensuite for both rooms. The cottage being set back from the road provided a very peaceful location. The children loved feeding the chickens and seeing the sheep in the field as we drove in and out of the driveway. There is lots to do in the surrounding area. We all loved the horse sanctuary just up the road. The nearby beach at east Runton is lovely Although the weather wasnt kind to us we managed to get one day there at the beach. The beach was supported by life guards and The area was flagged off for swimming and water sports. I would not hesitate to reccommend Orchard Cottage and the area to anyone with or without children. Customer 49 (August 2011)
A great holiday cottage in a lovely peaceful location.The property was very clean and comfortable, including many thoughtful little touches to make you feel welcome. Even our pets had their needs catered for with a little dog run area. The owners were helpful and there was plenty to do in the surrounding areas. We would happily return. Customer 50 (August 2011)
This property was well equipped and very comfortable in an easily accessible location. There were very pleasant personal touches which made our arrival even more welcoming. Customer 51 (June 2011)

This cottage should be Gold Star Plus. It is the best we have ever stayed in. Customer 53 (April 2011)
Lovely property and good for our two dogs. Owners very helpful. Ideal location for exploring the North Norfolk Coast and close to many NT properties. Customer 54 (March 2011)
Orchard Cottage was home from home, warm, clean and comfortable. The thoughtfulness of the owners was exceptional, with tea, coffee,milk, biscuits and other useful provisions there to get you started. Fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and a log basket full of logs for the wood burner. Gripper our little Patterdale Terrier found the French doors overlooking the Orchard his very own holiday television treat as he watched pheasants, squirrels and many birds visit. A wonderful holiday. Customer 55 (November 2010)
The property is of a very high standard. The welcoming touches of flowers, wine, teabags & milk we much appreciated. The owners made us feel so welcome, they even asked us to help ourselves to pears from the tree in the garden! Customer 56 (October 2010)
As my father is elderly the accommodation was excellent as all the areas within the cottage (other than the master bedroom) was on one level, which made access easy. Customer 57 (August 2010)
I don’t think a short comment would be enough. Excellent accommodation and excellent location. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Customer 58 (July 2010)

Have been with your company now for many years. This property and its owners have shown great attention to every detail and made this a most enjoyable stay. Would rate this as the best accommodation we have used. A hard act to follow. Customer 68 (August 2009)
Peaceful location near major attractions and the coast. As the property was under one year old all the appliances and the building were new and clean. The owners welcomed us and offered us lettuce from their vegetable garden. Customer 69 (July 2009)
The whole experience at the location of Orchard Cottage was excellent. We could live there with no problem. We will certainly be going back. Customer 70 (March 2009)
A really pretty, newly created cottage with lovely views over the countryside. The cottage was one of a little group of holiday properties converted from old agricultural buildings and the whole development was sensitive with bags of character. The owners said it was a dog-friendly place and it was, with a fenced area on the development for exercising the dogs and lots of local walks. There was also an orchard and there were lovely garden areas also. I would warmly recommend this cottage for people with dogs or children. Customer 71 (February 2009)
Orchard Cottage was excellent in every respect. It was very comfortable and the owners had obviously given a great deal of thought to providing every thing possible for the comfort of their guests. The owners were extremely pleasant and welcoming. It was a most enjoyable and restful holiday. JUly 2011. Customer 72
