“WOW”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A delightful, light and spacious cottage in a beautiful quaint Village.
4 adults and 3 children and never felt on top of each other. The rooms are light and airy and the kitchen is superbly stocked with every utensil/appliance you could ever want and more.
Horning is a perfect place to stay and explore the broads. There are places to eat within walking distance, booking advised in peak times. Holt is a lovely little town and Bewilderwood is absolutely amazing for the children.
Highly recommend Swan Cottage and we will definitely be returning.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage.

Swan was just like its name, graceful, well appointed and lovely to rest and relax in with family. It had everything we needed and was superbly located in the heart of horning.

“Lovely cottage always clean on arrival”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our 4th visit to Swan Cottage in the last 6 years. It is always clean and tidy and crammed with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The beds are comfortable and its a real home from home with good size rooms set in a great location- you are spoilt for choice for pubs and restaurants in the village and there's a plethora of Norfolk attractions only a short drive away.

“Cottage In the centre of the village”

I stayed here for 5 nights over Easter with my family, I just love the cottage and have been back a few times. It is very spacious, homely, all the amenities of home, very comfortable and clean. It is in the middle of the village so shops, restaurants, pubs are no distance then there are The Broads right on your doorstep! It was very relaxing and we all came back refreshed. We will be back.

“Excellent weekend break”
Reviewed November 12, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stayed for 3 nights in Swan Cottage and had a lovely break. Cottage was very nice and stands in a great position in the village. Horning has a couple of good pubs which serve good food and a very nice fish restaurant.
The cottage was clean and had all of the facilities you could need for a lovely stay.
Highly recommended.

“Great family break”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family and I wanted to find somewhere for us all to stay to celebrate my father's 60th birthday. My parents, sister, brother-in-law, 6 month old niece and I stayed at Swan Cottage for one week. The cottage was perfect for all of with plenty of space and we never felt as if we were on top of each other. It was very well equipped. We did pay extra for use of the highchair but it did make life easier. There are lovely pubs within a 5 minute walk. We particularly enjoyed The Swan. However, the kitchen was suitable for cooking (it can be a struggle in some holiday rentals) and so ate in a few nights. We enjoyed fish and chips from Greys in Wroxham but there is a fish and chip shop in Horning although it is closed on a Monday.
The cottage was a great base to explore the broads and we enjoyed days out to Cromer, National Trust properties and many of the local attractions. We also hired a boat from just down the road (next the the New Inn) which was good fun.
I found Leigh very pleasant to deal with and my e-mails were always replied to very quickly.
We didn't want to come home and would definitely stay again.
