“Super location and beautiful cottage very well equipped.”
Reviewed September 25, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Great spot. Tanya was a great host, very helpful with arrival details and advice
about the location. Anvil cottage was the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in.
It was comfortable and quiet with a great sitting out area front and back which we used regularly with a bottle of wine!!
A host of location and attractions leaflets which would match most tourist offices.
Tea, coffee and a super welcome pack including a bottle of wine awaited us when we arrived.
Would we recommend and go again.you bet. Great place.

“Perfection !!!!”
Reviewed September 20, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

If your looking for a exquisite location for peace and quiet with everything you could hope for then look no further than Anvil Cottage. We have been staying here for 4 years now and each year we book before we leave because we could not want to miss out on our week of sheer joy and relaxation each year. Tanya and Felicity are the best hosts, nothing is to much trouble and the standard of Anvil Cottage is excellent. It really is like home from home, anything you need to be there is there. The welcome basket is so lovely along with a pot of fresh flowers and a lovely bottle of wine. They even supply bread, milk, butter and eggs to get you started. Attention to detail is wonderful. You are only 20 minutes away from the beach front at Great Yarmouth and there are some lovely local takeaways nearby. Tanya and Felicity have provided all the information you could want on the area, what to do and where to go. You really couldn't ask for anywhere better to stay. I recommend to everyone and other members of our family have stayed there and they love it just as much as we do. Give it a go you won't be disappointed..

“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.
