“Just Perfect”
Reviewed October 10, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We found ourselves smiling every time we entered this charming little cottage. It is the perfect mix of character and mod cons.
I especially loved the fact that it was so warm and cosy, I loved the little conservatory with its twinkling lights, I loved the spacious bedroom with its comfy bed, I loved the walk-in shower, I loved the courtyard garden where we were invited to use the herbs that grow there and I loved the peaceful location.
We had everything we required for our four day stay... and more.

Would I recommend Albion Cottage to my friends? A definite 'Yes!'.
Tips: Watch out for the little blue tits feeding on the fennel seeds in the front garden - aaah!

PS for Liz; I have sourced a Haemanthus Albiflos!!

Stayed here several times now, including spending last Christmas here, its magical! As soon as we enter we feel at home...everything you need is there, last week it allowed us to kick back and relax!!having 3 labradors, we averaged around 16 miles per day walking the beaches. The Cottage is so ideally placed as a base to explore surrounding areas, Cromer, Sherringham etc, Liz, the owner is great,,you arrive to freshly made scones with jam and cream, she will pop and check all ok and should you need anything, someone always there for you. We have only one downside to Albion Cottage and that is having to leave!! But will be back for Christmas with the boys.....

“A Victorian time capsule ”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Albion is an absolute gem. We had a totally tranquil weekend in this most relaxing of Norfolk hideaways. Beautifully decorated and amazingly equipped Albion is the perfect spot for a quiet break and a digital detox. The house has wifi, Tv, DVD and radio, but in total honesty we enjoyed the quiet and read the paper and books. Albion is situated near the church in a quiet street and just 2 mins walk from the pub! The house was lovely and warm when we arrived and there was a delicious cream tea laid out for us on arrival, what a lovely welcome.

The owner, Liz, was a welcoming host and made our short visit super!

“Wildlife”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Unfortunately we had to come home early from our booked weeks holiday.I did try to contact the owner to no avail though.Whilst I too live in the country there is certain wildlife I do not like.Whilst sitting in the patio at the back of the property on our third evening enjoying the warm evening air,we were joined by two unwelcome creatures. I am not faint hearted,but this did spoil my evening.The wildlife decided to join us again the following morning and later again In the evening. We decided that this was not acceptable and left early the following morning.We were both disappointed,as we had been looking forward to our week near the sea.

Communication: We make sure that before any visitor arrives they receive all our contact details - 4 phone numbers and 2 email addresses as well as being able to contact us via the website. We also leave a note in the cottage with all the contact details and as we do live next door we always pop round to make sure all is well. Consequently I do find it perplexing that the guests say that they could not contact us. We received no call on any of the numbers or a voice message or a text. We received no email, no note in our letter box or knock on our door. I did speak to the guests a couple of days after they arrived and they had no issues at that point.

Wildlife:
We have lots of wonderful creatures visit our garden which is next door: bats, squirrels, owls, Muntjack deer, hedgehogs, dragonflies, ducks, a vulture (but that is another story), some very tame blackbirds, pheasants (a Golden pheasant one spring), rabbits, mice, frogs, voles, moles, newts and lots more birds. So if wildlife IS your thing Albion Cottage would love to welcome you.

Reviewed March 8, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The cottage was lovely and situated in a very peaceful village near the church. We were welcomed with a scone, jam and cream tea, which was most appreciated after a long drive
and also the rooms were already nicely heated. The decor is excellent in a victorian style with William Morris wallpaper, very authentic but with every modern amenity you could want!
