“A Home from Home”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned to Ireland & thank Sue & Freya for providing a 'home from home' for us at Latch Cottage. From the welcoming delicious lemon cake, the biscuits with the tea making facilities in every bedroom, the comfortable furniture to the beautiful bed linen & towels etc. every thing was of the highest standard. There were plenty of extra plates, cutlery & glasses so we could entertain our in-laws who lived nearby (& a very well stocked shop a few yards away where we could stock up on supplies!) The stairlift was so useful for Colin with his bad knees!
There were plenty of games & DVD's for if the weather had been bad, but luckily we made more use of the BBQ ( for which even the charcoal was provided)
We were able to get out & about every day, to the coast, to Sandringham, to Kings Lynn & to the amazing Castle Acre Priory, but we're always happy to come home to Latch Cottage!
Colin & Fran.

“A Gem of a Place for a Lovely Holiday”
Reviewed December 6, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Latch Cottage was a wonderful place to stay, the owner's have added lots of touches that make it a home away from home. Thank you for the cake on arrival + the tea and coffe and toiletries all unexpected. The cottage has it all, from books and DVD's and games to information about what's in the area and village. Also a selection of wine you are free to use as long as you replace the bottle, lovely after a day out. It's well equipped and very comfortable, having a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer if you want that sort of thing, even foot rests to rest those tried feet after a long day !! This cottage would suit young or old, set over three floors, with two bedrooms on the first floor that have the use of a stair lift if needed, and a great double shower. My room was on the second floor this was a double with skylight windows ( the stairs are not steep, and have deep treads ) loved that room with its own toilet.
The village of Grimston has everything you need, a short walk away is a pub that serves food, a local shop and just past this a little out of sight is a wonderful deli / butcher who sells local produce, we ordered a quiche which they made for us and we picked it up hot just out of the oven, really lovely, there's also a lovely old church. So you don't even have to leave the village !!! But having said that its in an ideal location, Sandringham is only about 5 miles away. Kings lynn is a lovely old town on the river, You can visit Downham Market, or go the other way to Hunstation a lovely old English sea side town, or to Wells. There's so much you could do, but once you get inside this cosy little cottage you may not want to go out !!!

“Absolutely lovely”
Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Really splendid. So fed up with holiday lets that disappoint - you know that sinking feeling as you get beyond the front door - not this one. It was beautifully clean and extremely comfortable. There were many welcoming touches which were well in excess of expectations. Really cannot fault it. The location worked for us too. Plenty to do in the surrounding area which left us wanting more. Easy and pleasant cycling and walking too.

“Perfect cottage with lovely owners”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed for a week in this lovely cottage. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need, it was by far the best equipped holiday home we have been to. Our party of five was of mixed ages and the cottage provided something for everyone. It is situated a little inland but is only a short drive to the sea, historic sites and Kings Lynn, which my nearly teenage daughter enjoyed for the shops. All in all we had a lovely stay with extremely thoughtful owners and would recommend this gorgeous cottage.

“The Perfect Place to stay!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

I stayed at Latch cottage with a fellow student nurse whilst we were on placement in the QE hospital in Kings Lynn.
The cottage was simply wonderful, everything you could imagine had been thought of, and more!
It was the perfect place to come home to after our shifts, we didn't want to leave!
The cottage itself is full of character, from the log fire to the beamed ceilings, and the village is so peaceful yet near to Kings Lynn and various other places of interest.
