We very much enjoyed our stay at The Stables. On arrival, we received a warm welcome by Ceri and a generous welcome basket. We were delighted with presentation of the property, everywhere looked clean and in great condition. The central sitting room had a lovely airy feel with its high ceiling and mezzanine level above. Our daughter was happily entertained with the large garden that includes a slide and swings. We enjoyed the outside table and chairs for alfresco dinners.
The cottage was cosy with lovely furnishings and the highest spec entertainment equipment I ever seen in holiday accommodation with a good grange of CDs, DVDs and also books. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed; even games and buckets and spades were on hand for a day at the beach - you can tell that Ceri and John do their utmost to help their guests enjoy their stay.
It's location is perfectly placed to explore The Broads or have a day at the beach. Ceri was very helpful in suggesting places of interest and recommended pubs and resturants.
We'll be sure to recommend the property to friends and family.
We stayed seven days at The Stables which we found to be an ideal property for its location and cleanliness.
Ceri was a deight to deal with due to her genuine friendliness and understanding especially when I told her we'd ruined her kettle. We did replace it so that must have helped!
We would recommend The Stables if you are looking for peace and quiet and for a property which is within easy reach of the coast but also provides a good location to explore inland.
My partner and I stayed at The Stables for a couple of nights for a special get away and absolutely loved it.!! We were made to feel very welcome by the owners. We were given all the information about the stables and the local area on arrival along with a welcome basket :)!
Reading the previous review it's rather hard to believe these people stayed at the same place!
The Stables are very well equipped, comfortable, clean and nicely furnished.
We had a lovely stay and will 100% be back!
This was our second stay at The Stables.
It is such a lovely cottage and a haven of tranquility. Just what we needed to unwind and relax. We were also lucky this time to have fabulous sunny weather and enjoy the gorgeous garden at the end of the day.
The Stables is spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable.
We will be returning again next summer and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely retreat to anyone who'd love to explore the wonderful surroundings and great shopping in Norwich.
Ceri the owner is always full of great suggestions so you will be well advised and looked after.
On arrival at The Stables we were greeted by the owner Ceri and as we were slightly earlier after a 5 hour car journey we were invited to sit in the garden with a coffee while she "finished off"
We were shown round the Stables as if it were a show home. On first impressions it looked okay.
It is smaller than it seems in the pictures description of it.
The sitting room and small bedrooms are done out in a mushroom colour, which makes it gloomy.
In the sitting room are 3 large nearly floor to ceiling windows ..... all frosted glass so no light coming in from them making it feel dark and oppressive. Also in the sitting room are the usual tv with dvd player and games console, chair and settee of which is very low. There is also the dining table and chairs.
The bedrooms are small with one wardrobe in the single room to accommodate up to 3/4 guests clothes. There is also a small cupboard in the bathroom which we were told is for clothes also.
The small second bedroom is just that with a double bed and small set of drawers .... not much room to move.
The kitchen is a small square well equipped but with barely any bench space, and another dark room.
We found a few issues with the property ...... including a urine stained and dirty toilet seat and a odour of urine in the sitting room more so when the room was warm ...... we raised these issues with the owner Ceri, and we were beaten down with the bottom line being she blamed our clean, toilet trained and obedient dogs for the smell. Our dogs have wool hair and do not have the "doggy smell" and the stains on the toilet were described as "bleach stains" ..... there are only natural products to be used in the property!?
The area is rural and surrounding areas lovely. Norfolk is an ideal place to holiday however .... The Stables is not as advertised and I would not recommend it.
We had the best stay here for the week with our 13 year old daughter. Such a lovely welcome on arrival, beautiful cottage, a lovely garden and we were perfectly located to explore the area. Such a lovely week; we could easily have stayed for much longer. Would definitely recommend.
Best place that we have stayed at in Norfolk.Very secure large garden to let the grandsons play football & mini bike rides on patio.No stairs for them to fall down in the house.Very peaceful location.Excellent bike riding area. Ceri & John were very welcoming & friendly.
This is definitely top of our list when we visit this area again.
