“Perfectly situated cottage for our stay.”
Reviewed November 4, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The location was perfect for us as we were visiting family in the area and the cottage was a perfect getaway in between visits. Tanya is an excellent host and has thought of everything you could possible want while away from home, including a lovely welcome basket on arrival with everything we needed for that evening and breakfast the next morning. She is always on hand if needed and very eager to please. We loved our stay here and would gladly book this cottage again when we return to the uk. Thank you so much.

“All round first class base for sightseeing in Norfolk”
Reviewed June 25, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Located in the centre of arable farm land this wonderful cottage was a great find for us when searching for somewhere to stay in Norfolk that was centrally situated for everything. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the host and were provided with a very thorough overview of the property and all of its amenities. No item was missed from the very thorough inventory. The property was spotless both inside and out and it can be see why this lovely cottage has earned itself an English Tourism Gold award. We had the benefit of the sun sitting out on the decking in the morning at the rear of the property and on the front decking in the evening. Our cottage was equipped to accommodate two and was in fact spacious in all areas. The bed in the property is an extra large king size and was very comfortable. There is a fridge, freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Everything was supplied that we required to manage the house while there and a welcome basket was provided with everything we needed until we were able to shop for ourselves and included breakfast and a welcome bottle of wine. The property also provides free Wi-Fi, TV and iPod dock as well as books and games for those less technically focused.
I hope to return to the area again and will have no hesitation in booking this little gem in the heartland of Norfolk.

“Such helpful hosts”
Reviewed April 4, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My husband and I and our three cats were moving to England and we needed a place to stay for one week before our house became available to us - the cats arrived with their travel carer before we did and our hosts let the cats be freed into the cottage until we arrived from our long journey from Canada. During our first week we had a lot of time sensitive documents to attend to and Tanya was always there for us if we had internet issues - let's face it, people should be relaxing out here and unplugging, not being hyper vigilant of every email, but we had to be and so appreciated her assistance. It's a convenient location to both city and country with gorgeous sunsets.

“Wonderful tranquil cottage.”
Reviewed July 21, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Anvil cottage.
The cottage is well equipped and very clean and comfortable.
The hosts have spent a considerable amount of time making the stay as pleasant as possible and there is information packs on everything you would wish. I have never seen such well researched information so well done for providing this!
We found the cottage really near the Norfolk broads and also a short drive to the sea. Plenty of pubs and restaurants only a few minutes drive away so we found this cottage a great location to explore the area.
All in all a really enjoyable stay and I would be very happy to recommend Anvil Cottage for a welcome break.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent a delightful week from the 7th May in this superb immaculate cottage.
Tania and Felicity have made it so comfortable with lots of extras including tissues and cotton wool etc

Thank you for the welcome pack, so useful when you first arrive.

Cottage is in lovely quite lane, buses pass the bottom of drive into Norwich and other areas, cottage also near everything on the broads, short drive to coast.

Decking area overlooking fields, very private and great for a quite read or having a glass of wine in the evening.

I am sure we will return in the near future.

Well done to you both.
