We had an amazing break here. The layout was perfect for two familys and we'd definitely look at going again. Claire from Stamford (02 November 2015)
Fantastic accommodation with lots of restaurants within walking distance. The beach a 20 min drive away but lovely and sandy. Be prepared for no phone signal or wi-fi, but some may see this as a benefit. Florrie from Norwich (25 September 2015)
We enjoyed our stay very much indeed. we found the coach house very comfortable and in a great location. Tim from Copthorne, W. Sx (07 August 2015)
On arrival to the house which is in a beautiful and private location, we were met with a strong smell of bleach, which after a few hours, gave way to an awful smell of drains / sewer, which lasted the entire week. Every time we re-entered the house the smell was quite sickening and it has clearly been pointed out on previous reviews in reevoo, located in the main kitchen living space area. . . the property itself really suited our party’s needs, enabling one side of our family to sleep one end, and my in-laws and uncle the other, with the shared living space in the middle. There was lots of space for our two children to run around and have fun, which was great given that the week we stayed had terrible weather, raining every day except for the day we vacated. However the floors were filthy with the fake wood lino clearly in need of a proper clean including the kitchen area. Thankfully someone in our party had brought with them some floor wipes, but it soon became clear that there had not been any significant cleaning to the floors for some time. We even found a medical tablet of unknown origin under the large coffee table in the lounge area, thankfully before our two year old did. . . another major issue in addition to the bad smell and dirty floor was that in the right side double room entrance, liquid was coming up from the floor. It didn’t seem to be drain water, but on various occasions we had to change our socks having forgotten that the carpet in this area was permanently soaked. In the end we had to lay down plastic bags, but thankfully the liquid itself did not smell bad, but it did leave that side of the house smelling damp which needs further investigations by the owners. . . another issue we had with the twin bed on the opposite wing of the house was that there was a wasps nest in the roof tiles, and somehow they were making their way into this room despite the door and window being closed. Each day we had to eject anywhere between 6 and 10 wasps from this room. . all of these major issues I would have liked to have contacted the owners about there and then, but the mobile signal in the area is intermittent to say the least, and the whole norfolk region seems to have bad coverage, although we have left notes in each of the effected rooms to draw their attention to these concerns. As previously stated it’s a real shame because the property has such potential, but these bigger issues really took the shine off our stay. . . other little aspects I would also point out are the need to have larger towels for all of the 10 guests in the party, and not just for some, as there were 8 adults. Also I would suggested having some kids cutlery, bowls and plates as we have experienced in other cottages that we have stayed in, when such time has been taken to provide a cot and high chair. there was no batteries in the dvd remote, however I was able to navigate the menu using the dvd units controls. wi-fi would be a massive bonus as others have commented on, and a second key should really be made available for a property with this many people. This proved really restrictive when working out our days activities, especially when the group wanted to do diffident things. Some of the single mattresses could do with being replaced, as you could really feel the springs, which made for some uncomfortable nights, however the cooking facilities were really good with both ovens and hob worked well during our stay and an adequate number large pots to help cooking for all in the party at once. . . there was ample hot water during both the morning and evening to ensure all in the party could have hot showers, and both the local pub ‘the bell’ and the priory farm restaurant provided excellent food and real value. If you get the chance I would fully recommend booking an afternoons self-drive boat hire at the waveney river centre. The play park at fritton lake is also fantastic for children, although the carpark charge is excessive if you’re not planning to stay the whole day. Suggest you park the car further down the road and walk the short distance if your only staying a couple of hours. So overall a really beautiful part of the country, even during the rainy summer of 2015, just a real need to sort out these accommodation issues to make this truly a four star place for the future. Chris from Burton-On-Trent (31 July 2015)
Overall very pleased with our weeks stay. Needed a bit more variety with crockery and cook ware. Nearest shops are not within walking distance. Jenny from Solihull (19 June 2015)
Excellent place to stay. Would stay again. Only thing that would make stay better would be for wifi to be available, as the phone signal was poor, so wifi would have been useful. Other than that would highly recommend. Clean, 5 good sized bedrooms, space for cots, large living/dining room, lovely basket of cookies and refreshments waiting for us when we got there, had a fab week with extended family. The garden is not enclosed so you do have to watch little ones closely but this wasn't a big problem. Helen from Birmingham (29 May 2015)
The whole house is fairly shabby and not particularly clean lots of cobwebs. the house had an overpowering smell when it had been shut up so early morning really awful until the door had been left open. Drains? fortunately we had good weather and had the door open most of the time! . the large oven grill just smoked and was unusable so had to use the very small side one which is not adequate for the number of people the house accommodates. also the very old 2 slot toaster needs replacing for the same reason. . there were no instructions how to use the washer dryer and as we had 2 small children this would have been useful. there was mould on the far end double bed and the long curtains in this room. the beds were comfortable and bed linen good but the towels were thin and quite small. these sorts of things are so cheap and easy to put right and add to a greater sense of comfort. . overall we enjoyed our week it was a good safe environment for the children and dog to play outside. Jane from Nottingham (22 May 2015)
A great cottage for a big group, with all the things you need, and it a great location to access places like yarmouth, fritton & lowestoft. . . a few niggles though, but nothing major. A bit dusty in places and few cobwebs. Showers had mould and could see damp patches where it has leaked and also overflowed due to bad drainage. extractor fan in kitchen didn't work. Remote control for dvd player didn't work so we couldn't play our race night game we especially brought for the trip. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay. Confirmed Purchaser (17 November 2014)
Although it was a good price for a 10-person cottage, the interior upkeep was tired in parts, the lounge seating was very odd and we found its cleanliness not to be that thorough. David from Haywards Heath (09 November 2014)
Excellent place to stay as a base comfortable and well equipped. Loved every minute Kevin from Cambridge (26 September 2014)
Good location. shower problem dealt with promptly. generally clean, but skirting boards, around light switches etc dusty or grubby Eileen from West Hallam (22 August 2014)
The cottage was great. Very clean and has great open-plan areas for large groups. It was well-equipped with kitchen utensils, crockery etc. Including dish washer tablets and washing up liquid. The cottage is a little bit out the way, so you need to be prepared to drive to get anywhere but is great for privacy. There's a pub and restaurant within walking distance, but that's about it. Only 15-20 mins to a wide array of attractions to visit. Overall, we had a fantastic week away. Only one negative point, there was only one key to the cottage, so you need to make sure you stay together or know who will be back first! Nicola from Birmingham (11 July 2014)
This cottage is in a lovely location and in the middle of no where. Its perfect for those that want to completely get away from everything but also do not mind using their own car to get to a local shop or to get about. We found that the showers where running cold during our stay and that the cottage it self felt cold and difficult to warm up. Emma from Thrapston (20 June 2014)
Waveney coach house is well furnished and equipped with almost everything you need. the owners had left coffee, tea milk and biscuits for us which was a nice touch. my phone had a signal but others in the party couldn't get a signal. On the down side the lights need checking as some bulbs had gone. could have done with a cheese grater and perhaps carpets need cleaning each year as guests are allowed to take their dog although we only allowed our dog in the sitting area. . otherwise a very nice place Maureen from Hemel Hempstead (06 June 2014)
A lovely comfortable cottage in a lovely place. Kitchen equipment could do with a bit of updating. Lack of wifi/broadband a disadvantage. Very convenient for visiting places of interest in norfolk. we would certainly return. Margaret from Southminster (11 April 2014)
Lovely cottage, perfect for a large group. Would be a good set for two families. Good location for exploring the broads. Katherine from Kent (31 March 2014)
We felt the house lacked some colour, ie no pictures on walls, very bland colour scheme. also the shower cubicle we used was in poor condition. the cushions and throws on the sofas could do with updating also. Confirmed Purchaser (10 February 2014)
Excellent place was perfect for the 3 families. Nice pub in walking distance and plenty to do a short drive away. Martin from Bedfordshire (04 January 2014)
Very enjoyable, the cottage is very sociable as it is open plan, couldn't really ask for much more really, it had everything we needed. thanks Jane from Maldon, Essex (28 December 2013)
We stayed at waveney house in oct 13 and were really lucky with the weather which helped! the cottage is a long rectangular barn with an open plan kitchen, dining and living room in the middle with 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom one side and two twins, a double and a bathroom the other side which made it perfect for two families. St olaves is a good base to travel round norfolk and suffolk although the place itself is fairly remote. There is a pub at the bottom of the road which we found served lovely bar food, this is about 1/4 mile away. There is also a local restaurant close by but we didnt try there. . from the cottage its about 15mins drive into beccles which a lovely small market town with some lovely local shops and a great butchers wj seppings selling great quality meat. Lowestoft and gt yarmouth are also about 15mins away with a selction of beaches and attractions. The cottage is at the end of a long private road which isnt very well lit so might be advisable to take a torch with you. There is one at the cottage but its slightly damaged. Chris from Kettering (12 October 2013)
Location, parking, good size property, comfy beds, brilliant local pubs with good food, info packs were good with useful leaflets, nice patio area with ample seating. Susy from Nottingham (28 Jun 2013)
Lovely place with lots of space inside and out. Dan from Gillingham (21 Jun 2013)
Very large, comfortable living area. nice outside space. Fully equipped kitchen Confirmed Purchaser (24 May 2013)
Design and layout of the cottage was perfect. the sleeping accommodation and the central living, eating, cooking areas really worked for the multi family/friends who stayed with us. plenty of parking. Barbara from Flitwick (17 May 2013)
Lovely cosy feel, even though it was large enough to accomadate our 3 familys, for a birthday and anniversary party, great location, very secluded and private, not far from yarmouth or lowestoft, would love to come back in summer to appreciate it at its best !! Yvonne from Skegness (18 March 2013)
Nice location Confirmed Purchaser (14 January 2013)
This was a lovely spacious and yet cosy cottage.. and we had a nice stay. We particularly liked the separate bedroom spaces at both ends of the coach house, with the central kitchen and lounge in the middle. ideal for separating the young children from their more peace-loving relatives. It was nice of the owners to supply some tea and coffee sachets and biscuits for our arrival. Linda from Portsmouth (07 September 2012)
Clean, modern property, plenty of space and well organised. excellent location in terms of places to visit and very accessible. Julie from Manchester (31 August 2012)
Clean house in a great location with lots of rooms. Tim (24 August 2012)
Handy for a few nice places to visit. Spotlessly clean, everything you would want in the cottage.would book again for sure. This was a 60th birthday break for all our family ideal, grandchildren played nice and safe outside.communication with owner excellent. Maria from Nottinghamshire (03 August 2012)
The property is in a lovely location away from main roads. It is very spacious and holds 10 people comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of kitchen untensils and plates, cups etc. Our only critcism would be that the bathroom and shower room could do with a little update. Customer 31 (August 2012)
Waveney Coach House is absolutely lovely, the interior is really nice and cosy and makes it feel like a home from home. There was everything there that we needed. The location of the coach house is very central with the beautiful beaches of Gorleston (beautiful, near deserted beach, gorgeous fine sand with no stones - perfect for the kids) and Leviston only a few miles away. We also went into Yarmouth (another lovely beach there but a lot more busier) and went to the arcades, sea life centre and pleasure beach. There was loads for the kids to do with the pettits adventure animal park a firm favourite. Back at the cottage the kids loved running around the garden playing with their scooters and balls. I’ve found it hard in the past finding a cottage that’s big enough for all the family, in a central location, cheap enough for us all to afford and with a homely but modern interior but Waveney coach house seems to have it all. We’ve already spoke about booking again for next year Customer 32 (May 2012)
Excellent accommodation and would highly recommend, We went as a family of 8 and the property was spacious and of a high spec. Would definitely go again. Customer 33 (May 2012)
Ideal base for exploring the suffolk & Norfolk border. Ideal for small childern or disabled as property is all on one level. Private and quiet. Customer 34 (September 2011)
A lovely property in the grounds of the main house. The property is surrounded by trees in fairly close proximity but the lawn area and patio still get a reasonable amount of sunshine. The property is well equipped, well appointed and very practical. There are 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The bedrooms are 2 good sized doubles, 2 twins and one bedroom with bunk beds. Top tip - make sure you take the directions provided by the owner as the property is not easy to find without them (don’t rely solely on sat nav). Customer 35 (July 2011)
The whole property is laid out well, very comfortable. Customer 36 (February 2011)
Nicely set out, comfortable and roomy. Customer 37 (September 2010)
The property was clean and welcoming. The layout of the rooms was well thought out and meant that bedrooms were on different ends of the property so that there could be some separation. Customer 38 (July 2010)
Clean, with good quality facilites. Customer 39 (July 2010)
The coach house was warm, clean and cosy it was just what we wanted. We were all very pleased with it. Customer 40 (November 2009)
Beautiful location, quality fittings in large rooms. Customer 41 (July 2009)
We all had an excellent holiday, the accommodation was immaculate. I highly recommend this property if you are looking for a quality holiday home in the Norfolk Broads. Customer 42 (June 2009)
Beautifully furnished cottage, the flowers, tea and coffee were appreciated. Customer 43 (October 2008)
Such a lovely place to spend Easter, nice and quiet but central for day trips. The cottage was superb, lovely and spacious with plenty of room. Will definitely recommend to friends! Customer 44
