This is our second visit here, having visited a few years ago as we loved it so much! Darlene and Alex gave us another lovely welcome and we particularly enjoyed all the homemade extras especially the strawberry and pimms jam to go on our scones. Nice relaxing break, even though the weather was cold it was snug inside and we love the heated flooring. Thanks again for another perfect stay.
We wanted to stay somewhere dog friendly to attend my grand daughter's 3rd birthday. We found somewhere lovely, with its own array of animals both wild and domestic. It was the end of December ... probably not the best time to visit Norfolk. But wrapped up in our cosy cottage it was fine. And the local produce in our welcome pack perfect :-)
I could go on and on but suffice to say this is one to save in my book for a return visit, perhaps when the weather is better.
Thanks to Alex and Dalene for their attention to detail. The little things are so important.
Good luck for 2018
Dalene and Alex have created a beautiful place to relax and unwind. The accommodation is the very highest standard, the garden is amazing and the welcome they give is incredible, nothing is too much trouble for them. We had aBbq in the Smial on Christmas eve and they had decorated to make it truly magical. Thank you for a perfect holiday.
Never before have we found such a brilliant place to stay in England.
The location is fantastic to explore Norfolk and Suffolk where there is so much to see and do all year round, everything reachable within an hour drive from Holkham Hall to Framlingham.
The accomodation is spotless for starters but so well equiped, bring nothing! Never have we found accomodation that literally has everything already there and in great working order. There is also a welcome pack that wants for nothing.
Then, there are your hosts, Dalene and Alex. Beautiful people who only care that your stay is outstanding. Ask them anything and it will happen. It's rare to find such a couple and they are now firm friends.
Finally, just how spacious, beatifully furnished and stylish could accomodation be? Well, this is it, a home from home (and better) we could honestly live here if they would have us.
We write this review with fear that too many people will find the Borrowers then, we might not get the availability when we want it but it is so outstanding that credit must be given to the owners who are doing something rather ecceptional here.
We shall return ...
Like the title states, this is our third visit to this wonderful place. If you want a home from home you would be daft not to book this gorgeous place.
The welcome pack which includes homemade goodies and much more is worth booking this place.
The secure garden is huge and has lots of garden nooks and seating. There is a fantastic children's play area but unfortunately the over forties are banned.
We used the fully kitted out BBQ hut again which is magical at night.
Deleine and Alex are so welcoming and even though our lurcher wants to eat their cats he always gets a warm welcome too.
If you book this place you won't regret it.
We stayed in The Borrowers for 3 nights and it was just perfect! Dalene and Alex greeted us as we arrived and showed us around. A lovely selection of goodies awaited us such as prosecco chocolates flowers.. local ham and homemade scones and bread and lots more. The grounds are just stunning with so many areas to go to relax. We will certainly be returning. Thank you both for a wonderful stay :) xx
