What a super cottage. Clean, everything we could ever want provided including delectable food and a double bed each. The garden is a delight and the fire make a cold wet afternoon very cosy. So much to see and do around here. Thank you very much.

Thank you for a lovely stay in your beautiful cosy cottage. Our spaniel loved the garden full of balls (apples!!) - had great fun! Thanks again.

Have had a lovely family holiday in this fantastic cottage. We agree with previous comments, one of Rural Retreats’ best cottages. Lovely big garden with good furniture, cosy lounge with fires lit, comfy beds, great shower and everything you could need in the kitchen. Our 7 year old son really enjoyed the piano! Thank you for the welcome hamper and a spotless cottage.

Our 6th Rural Retreats holiday and this beautiful cottage comes up to the standard we’ve come to expect. We’ve loved every minute of our time here and the week has just flown by. The weather has been fantastic and what a superb way to spend an evening with a bottle of wine watching the sun go behind the trees. I think that we will be booking this cottage again in the very near future.

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage which feels so homely. We had the log burners going and were very cosy! The scenery is outstanding and we made our obligatory visit to the Beach at Wells-next-to-sea for fish & chips at French’s. We’d love to come back! Thank you.

The moment we walked into Beech End we felt at home. It has such a lovely feeling & is perfect in every way. It has been so thoughtfully equipped & arranged with everything one could want or need. Everything is of the best quality & taste. Steve & Carolyn were very helpful, friendly & informative, as was the neighbour. The location is quiet & peaceful & we have really enjoyed the sightings of owls, bats, squirrels, numerous blue tits, woodpecker, pheasant etc., & most from the comfort of the bedroom window! This cottage is perfect bliss. Thank you so much for a lovely break.

This was by far one of our favourite cottages. Loved the location. Love the wood burner. And loved the HOUSE. We arrived to a cosy cottage which felt so welcoming and warm. We instantly fell in love with the house. We especially liked how close it was to the beach. We did go crabbing successfully and caught a few. Many thanks.

A great cottage combing nice features with modern amenities (including a good quality bed, which is often overlooked in holiday lets). Cool damp weather but still managed to see Cromer, Norwich, Blickling Estate, Felbrigg Hall and lots of other attractions if had more time. Two-hour cruise on Broads from Wroxham was excellent.

We have had a wonderful week in this delightful cottage which is so beautifully furnished and immaculately maintained. We particularly enjoyed the pictures and the personal touches which make it a ‘ home’ rather than a holiday cottage for us. We loved the carefully chosen ‘welcome’ provisions of locally grown asparagus and strawberries which Steve and Carolyn left for us.

A delightful well-equipped and very comfortable house and lovely garden. Saw a green woodpecker on post opposite and a barn owl fly over green at night. Visited 20 fabulous artists as part of ‘open suites’ in fabulous countryside gardens. We also loved the art work in the house. Thank you.

Had a lovely relaxing break. The cottage is beautiful and a lot of thought has gone into furnishing it and the little extra touches - the toiletries, hamper, dog treats were a nice touch. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.

Have had a lovely holiday in Norfolk. The cottage is excellent, very comfortable and extremely well equipped (one of the best RR cottages we have stayed in). We would recommend the Saracens Head, Wolerton for dinner (good idea to book it’s popular). Relaxing boat trip on the Broads from Wroxham (the houses on the river are interesting). Good day out at Holkham Hall and Wells next the Sea is quaint. Thank you very much for the welcome hamper and all the attention to detail.

We've had many cottage breaks, but this is by far the best one we’ve stayed in. The attention to detail is excellent from the welcome hamper, fresh flowers and all home comforts. Cottage & garden lovely. Enjoyed exploring the area. Hope to make a return visit!

Our second time this year! Just fell in love with this cottage and Norfolk. So many places we still haven’t visited, so ‘must' come back next year.

What a beautiful cottage! We have had a lovely break and enjoyed exploring the coast from this wonderfully quiet base. The cottage was very well equipped and beautifully prepared for our our arrival by Steve and Carolyn (Thank you). Our dogs have love the beaches and running up and down the lawn. We would definitely come again.

We have had a lovely 4 days of rest in the beautiful cottage in a perfect spot many thanks for the great hamper. We did not need to buy any food. We also love the English Country Garden. The smell of roses on entering is heaven. Many thanks.

Another holiday in this lovely cottage. Definitely the best we have stayed in. Thank you to Steve and Carolyn for making us feel so welcome and keeping Beech End so immaculate. We were lucky to see the barn owl (briefly), a deer, and to see and hear a cuckoo. The peace has been lovely. I’m sure we’ll be back.

Thank you for an idyllic two days. The raison d’être of our stay was a gift from our daughter for my birthday. From the moment we arrived the cottage said ‘welcome’. We have stayed in many Rural Retreats but this one is ‘perfect’. Thank you so much. We holt to return for a longer stay.

Such a beautiful cottage in fabulous surroundings - we enjoyed our time very much. Excellent dog walking country - our lurcher loved the beaches around Cromer. We can highly recommend ‘The Pigs’ and ‘The Ship Inn’ pubs. Great food and hospitality. Many thanks for making us feel welcome.

Definitely the best RR cottage we have stayed in, and we’ve stayed in quite a few. Increidlbe weather - either very hot or heavy rain but Sheringham Park was just the shady place for long walks followed by a drink. Have rested and relaxed in these very quiet surroundings. A huge thank you to Carolyn and Steve for the superb way in which the cottage is maintained and the welcome hamper which included strawberries and cream and asparagus. Wow - what a welcome!

We’ve now stayed in thirteen RRs properties, many more than once, and this one is definitely our favourite. A lovely large, secure garden for our cocker spaniels and the cottage itself is very comfortable, just like home from home.

A lovely, comfortable peaceful cottage and good base for visiting various places of interest and coastal walks. Fine weather, some excellent wildlife both locally (barn owl and deer) and on coast (Egyptian geese at Cley marshes). We and our dog enjoyed long walks and good pubs and food as recommended by Steve and Carolyn. Thank you.

Plumstead Green for Easter! What could be better? Daffodils, primroses, strutting pheasants, frogs literally leaping from the pond and even a good few days with blue skies. Loved the cottage and would second everybody else’s positive comments. It’s a rare and beautiful thing to have such great friendly help from Steve and Carolyn. Great facilities and attention to detail and also to enjoy the generosity of the owners, sharing some of their lovely belongings. Thank you. I’m sure we will be tempted back.

Like many others, we too have used Rural Retreats cottage and agree that this is one of the nicest, most well kept cottages. Everything is top quality (with plenty of plates, pots, cutlery etc). The area is lovely. We saw the Barn Owl, perched on the fence post - looking for lunch! All in all a great place to stay. MF Yorks.
1 August 2013
It has been a pleasure to stay in such a lovely, comfy cottage in a truly peaceful area. We know the area reasonably well and finding Beech End in which to stay, means return visits will be 'breaks' to really look forward to. Thank you to the housekeeper for making the cottage so welcoming and spotlessly clean. PB Herts.

This is the perfect rural getaway, located in an area of unspoilt beauty, which has retained its character through the ages. We felt completely at home here, the cottage is charming and well-equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed the beaches, the wildlife and the historical places to visit. Well done - you have a winning combination here! LVC Surrey.
