The Cottage Testimonials - 2012

Based on our previous experience with the Harrison Holiday Home in Florida (now sold) - our guests are always keen to share little snippetts about their stay and what they got up to. We've found the 'on-line guest book' to be an invaluable resource - and here's where we'll be looking forward to our guests sharing some of their best experiences of Snettisham Cottage and the local Norfolk area with others.

As you read through the testimonials below you will notice the number of repeat guests who have commented, over 70% of our bookings are repeats. We believe the high number of guests who come back to Snettisham Cottage - is the clearest possible indication of the quality of service we are offering.

  • I want to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Snettisham, and in particular in Corner Cottage.  The dining arrangements were just right and we all enjoyed our evenings around the kitchen table which was usually preceded or followed (or both) by a visit to the Rose and Crown!  I hadn’t appreciated just how close it is to your cottage – Wonderful!

    Thank you again for all your assistance.

    Note from BernardNote From Bernard:
    Sisters Gina & Laura and their extended families rented both Dove Cottage and Corner Cottage but all ate and socialised in Corner Cottage.

  • We have had a marvellous week-end and really enjoyed both houses which were very comfortable.

    They were both very well equipped, very clean and well presented.

    Very many thanks. We hope to come back again, probably in the Spring.

  • I wanted to write to say a big thank you on behalf of the whole family. What a wonderful cottage you have there. A lovely surprise for us at the end of a long car journey arriving at 9pm on a dark cold night. But even more so for our son and his young family who arrived around midnight! Such a welcoming and homely house. We were amazed at how well equipped the place was - absolutely everything that you could wish for was there - a real home from home. We had a thoroughly lovely time and our only regret was that our time there was so short. We were there for a wedding so unfortunately could only enjoy the cottage for half of the weekend. Everyone wanted to stay on and enjoy it. Still, we now know about the cottage for another time!

    Thank you once again, not only for the cottage but for being so kind and accommodating regarding the whole let.

    Best wishes,

  • Another very enjoyable stay, this time with lots of sunshine and only the odd shower. We re-visited all our old haunts – old Hunstanton, Holkham House and Sands, the lavender at Heacham – and also discovered Bircham Windmill, a great place for children and cake and fresh bread lovers! Nearby the farm shop at Great Bircham is under new management and sells good local produce. We hope to return next year.

  • Snow ice and freezing temperatures but this gorgeous cottage kept us warm and thawed after our dawn and dusk bird watching activities! Spectacular birding, weather and location.
