Charming 2 bedroom cottage, near open countryside, and selection of nearby village pubs. Just 12 miles from the coast.

Disappointed

I don’t normally write reviews but on this occasion I felt it was necessary, especially due to the lack of communication from cleaning company & landlords direct. On arrival there was a smell of dogs in the lounge, the floors had not been hoovered so there were lots of bits & fluff rolling around also carpet in lounge had lots of dog hairs on it , dog hairs & a lot of cobwebs & spiders in corners of rooms, also stains on floor in kitchen where it had not been mopped, cutlery was very stained & needs soaking in some Milton, outside space there was some dog poo & cigarette nubs that had been left, upstairs was the same story apart from there was a dirty tissue that had been left under the bed just by bedside table, beds were clean but there were a lot of hairs on bedding, we felt it had just had the very basics done cleaning wise, lots of dust on skirting boards etc, bathroom floor not been cleaned hairs & dust in corners, tried to get in touch with cleaners but did not reply to my email & also rang landlords twice with no communication from them either. It’s such a shame as it’s in a great location but I honestly would not recommend due to the slap dash cleanliness of the cottage, we would definitely not return

Nice cottage for a short break good location garden furniture could do with updating as it’s rusty in places otherwise comfortable

The cottage is lovely and in a quiet village with a nice pub. Location is great as Holkham and Brancaster beaches are 20 minutes away by car. We had a lovely time visiting these and other nice estates such as Sandrigham and good meal at the PUB one of the evenings. It was great that the cottage was pet friendly so we brought our family dog along with our children.
The property had everything we needed, including some essentials (soaps/detergents etc...), but could have been a bit more clean and the kitchen is a bit outdated. There were some flies downstairs so that was not very nice and was not clear why that was the case. I think that a few days before our arrival there was an issue with the water tank in the roof, perhaps that caused an influx on flies.
All in all however it was a good stay for the price and we may come back.

Hello Barbara Thank you so much for reviewing April Cottage. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, that the cottage provided everything you needed and that you thought it a good price. Its always good for future guests to read these things first hand There had indeed been an issue with the hot water and a leak the week before which the owner sorted straight away. I am not sure if that's what caused the issue with the flies or if it is just that time of the year. We do hope you decide to come and stay again soon. Many thanks

Hi Ken Thank you for taking the time to review April Cottage. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I am so sorry to hear that some of the surfaces were dusty. I have checked the calendar and it looks like the property had been empty for a couple of weeks before your stay. It was thoroughly cleaned after the last guests vacated but would perhaps have benefitted from an addition dusting before you arrived. I do hope this did not spoil your enjoyment.
