The cottage is a real home from home. Comfortable and well equipped.You have sky TV and Wi-Fi.The sitting room, leading out to the courtyard garden was my favourite. Very light and airy. The garden area was ample with paving,decking, table and chairs,raised flower beds and trees. My little dog would not use it as he prefers grass but there is a good sized playing field just behind the cottage for morning and evening "Visits" but we were out exploring every day. The 2 king-sized beds are very comfortable. The beach at nearby Mundesley is vast and sandy. Perfect for families. It's quite a steep descent but there is a slope. However, if you have dogs you are only allowed either side of the promenade and beach huts.Check the high tide times as we couldn't access the dog part until the tide was turning. A must for dog owners is Felbrigg Hall. Although stick to the woods if you like to let your dogs run off lead as the walk to the church and lake is through fields of sheep and cows. The cafe is in a beautiful courtyard setting. We were lucky to be able to sit outside. Dogs are welcome inside too! If you don't want to cook there are plenty places nearby. The Ship pub was excellent.Again dog friendly as is the little corner cafe.The village chippy near the hotel was the best fish and chips I've tasted. Leaves Aldeburgh's standing!We used the Chinese in Bacton for a takeaway delicious. Wroxham barns has a little farm area and fair rides. Great for the little ones.The Bure railway from Aylsham to Wroxham was not great. It's little carriages not a full sized steam train like Sherringham so ok for children but hard on the old bones and view is somewhat restricted as it's so low to the ground.The boat trip on the Broads from Wroxham was lovely. Dogs welcome. I will definitely be going back to Rose cottage. It has everything you need and is in a great position. You can park at the front but this is on the road so you may prefer to use the car park at the back(or front as that's where the front door is). Excellent cottage. Thanks Graham.
This is a very well equipped, luxurious cottage in the village of Gimmingham. Suitable for dog owners with a secure walled garden. Beaches within about 10 minutes drive. I would not hesitate to recommend.
Took a weeks last min brake to Norfolk early may 2017 found the cottage online, the owners are more than helpful with a good amount of local info ready for us. As for rose cottage the rooms are large and well equipped kitchen is new and to a good standard the sun room and garden nice and large we took two labor dogs and they had plenty of room the best room downstairs has to be the lounge with its wood burning stove a real nice homley touch upstairs the two large bed rooms with king size beds really comfortable to the wet room works well. The property is in an ideal location to visit most of north Norfolk, the beach at mundesley was fantastic for the dog cromer with in easy reach loved the week's holiday and the cottage made it that little bit more special
Rose Cottage was a great stay. Two spacious bedrooms, an enclosed garden, a fully fitted kitchen all made this a wonderful stay. A few remarks about non-working ammeneties - lights, oven, heated towel rail, air defuser etc. were slightly irritating but on the whole a great place to stay. It is a long, long walk to Mundsley though and there's nothing around the cottage so come prepared for a lot of eating in - we did and loved it.
Lovely warm cottage, with a very well equipped dining kitchen, two large double bedrooms and two lounge areas. It feels like you are staying in someone’s home, rather than a rental property.
We travelled as a group of 3 forty-something friends, 2 spaniels and a teenage daughter, planning to have lots of nice walks and sightseeing each day and then spend cosy evenings in, chatting and eating dinner. Rose Cottage fitted the bill for this exactly however there are a couple of things that we were not expecting.
Firstly the cottage is in Gimmingham, not Mundesley, and although is advertised as being 20 minutes walk from the beach is actually nearer to a 45 minutes (brisk) walk.
Secondly the description also says that the village of Trunch is easily walkable to get to the shop and pub, but the lanes are very narrow with no verges and so are totally unsuitable for walking with children or dogs or in the dark. During our stay the lanes were also very busy with huge agricultural machinery. Basically it means that you have to drive everywhere, as there is nothing at all near by.
Teenager reported that the Wifi was intermittent, and no Sky TV channels were available, so that was also something that we had not expected, as if its advertised I feel that it should be available and useable.
Overall we had a great time in a lovely cottage which has been thoughtfully equipped, but a more careful description on Holiday Lettings would have managed our expectations better.
