“Beautiful, relaxing stay in a lovely home”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was so welcoming and definitely home from home.
The location was perfect and we hardly used the car all week, there were plenty of places to eat within a short walk. We hired a picnic boat for 2 days which was ideal to break the week up. We had fantastic weather which was a bonus too.
Would thoroughly recommend a stay here, the owner was very helpful throughout the whole booking process.

“A beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A late Christmas present for the inlaws - what an excellent choice!
The property is lovely and clean, well equipped, and set in peaceful surroundings. The owner is very helpful and on hand when needed. A cute little island on the Broads surrounded by boats.
We could sit on the upstairs balcony at night and watch the boats sail home. The bird life is amazing; we had a family of Swans greet us each morning, and the birdlife is plentiful.
Horning is a cute village; the locals are very friendly and polite. Plenty of pubs and places to eat, including a delicious Thai Takeaway.
Plenty of things to do within easy distance. I recommend a visit to Horsey to meet the Seals. It was incredible! They were all laying on the beach, letting us take photo's and waving to us. Well, that's what I like to think :)

“Quiet and comfort”

Only stayed for three nights but had a wonderful relaxing time. The island is quiet and peaceful and the house was comfortable and had everything we needed. I spent most days curled up on the settee or reading on the balcony while husband fished. On the practical side, comfortable bed, decent hairdryer good tv (4 in total), nicely equipped and fitted out kitchen. Supply of tea and coffee to keep you going if you haven't shopped and a box of shortbread biscuits - very nice. Maybe a ten minute walk to left or to right for takeaways, shops and pubs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Grebe View... Great location... Spacious house... Excellent parking...
Carol was very friendly and helpful.

My only tiny negative was the Wi Fi. Not reliable very hit and miss all week.
But that's something that was important to me!

Sue,

Thank you for the kind review I am please you had an enjoyable stay.

Sorry about tne WiFi we have the best service available to to us , it is reliable but not exctly high speed.
we have campainged for a better service but we are still waiting, I guess rural Norfolk is not a priority for BT or any other provider.

Hope yo seen you again soon,

Regards,

Carol

“Tranquility in the Broads”

Grebe view is a lovely cottage with views over the Bure River. It is within walking distance of the centre of Horning village where there is a small convenience store, restaurants and take away with great coffee.

The cottage was very clean and resonably well equipped. Carol was very helpful and there were no problems with checking in or out. We had a lovely three day stay despite the cold and blustery weather!
