Luckie family, West Yorkshire, May 2013.

Had a lovely relaxing time: hot tub every day (despite the silly “spring” temperatures of 4 degrees). Walks around about, exploring down to Reedham Ferry and loving seeing all the lambs playing. Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens were great – from crocodiles to tigers, and we did the 1920s wooden roller-coaster at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach. Beccles was a smart town to explore and a very reasonable meal at the recently reopened Kings Head. Many thanks.
McArthurs, April 2013

We’ve had a fantastic week, what a house. We loved the hot tub and we were very taken with the freezer that dispenses ice. It was great fun to see the lambs bouncing around and lovely to relax in the countryside. Our two dogs loved it too and are exhausted now. All in all, a wonderful holiday.
Pierce family, Surrey, April 2013

Lovely weekend in this amazing house. Loved the hot tub! We took the previous advice and walked up to the Ferry Inn which was a lovely walk.

Turner family, Kent, August 2012

Super location, lovely house with a big spacious kitchen. We’d come again.
Curshams, Edinburgh, July 2012

I was looking for a big comfortable house for a chilled birthday weekend with nine friends. We loved the hot tub, the peace and the birdsong, found all the equipment we could wish for in the kitchen, were warm, slept in lovely cosy beds, there was plenty of room for cars, and any questions or requirements were promptly and cheerfully dealt with by Lizzie and Nick. It felt like home and it was so hard to leave! I thoroughly recommend this house, and its owners, even though I’d rather keep it a secret so it’s available next time I want it…
Suttons (Heckingham Manor), June 2013

Our farm stay was one of the best things we did on our month long trip in the UK from Australia. We were welcomed into the home and treated like part of the family which made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing! The food was delicious. We loved experiencing the farm life and learning about the differences and similarities to Australian farm life! Unfortunately we did not stay long enough! Would recommend staying here and would love to come back in the future!
