                                                          Perfect house, perfect location, perfect owner!!

                                                          Donna M.

                                                          I rented this house for my sisters hen weekend, with girls aged from 30 to 59 years old, and I cannot say enough good things about it. It is huge and has the most gorgeous garden which we were fortunate enough to get lots of use out of due to having great weather. The bedrooms were all beautiful and more than big enough for everyone. The games room and pianos were really good fun too and there are bikes to use as well.

                                                          There is a pub just up the road and a shop nearby too. The house is very easy to get to and there are some amazing places nearby to visit. We did canoeing during the daytime which was so much fun.

                                                          The owner Jo was a pleasure to deal with. Communication was great and she let me into the house the day before the hen weekend so that I could set up all of the decorations ready for the girls arrival! She even left a gorgeous welcome basket full of delicious treats for us too!

                                                          I could only dream of owning a stunning house like this and I will be recommending it to everyone! I shall definitely be returning. If I could give this house more than 5* I would!

                                                          Thank you Jo for what will be a very memorable weekend for our family and especially for my sister xx

                                                          Clare R.

                                                          We had a fabulous weekend in the snow in great comfort - spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Very friendly helpful and efficient hosts - thank you Jo!

                                                          Comfortable and well equipped

                                                          Caroline O.

                                                          We all had a great time and appreciated the high quality bedding, multiple ovens and large fridge space. Thank you for being so accommodating of our requirements.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you for your lovely review and I am so pleased you all enjoyed your weekend.

                                                          Fantastic Property - Our Second Visit

                                                          Mark W.

                                                          We have stayed at Dove Farmhouse before, so were pleased to return again for a long weekend at the beginning of December.

                                                          I don't really have much to add to my previous review (in Dec-16) - the house was again very well presented - we spent a lot of time cooking and eating in the large kitchen, both adults and children enjoyed the use of the snooker table and table football and there was plenty of seating in the living rooms.

                                                          As with our previous trip, the owner Jo responded very quickly and helpfully to any enquiries we had in advance of the trip and I would thoroughly recommend the property to anyone looking to spend some time in that part of Norfolk.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you for once again a super review and you are all the perfect guests. So pleased you have already booked again for next year and we look forward to welcoming you back. Have a super Christmas and see you in 2018. Jo

                                                          Fantastic house, tons of space and had everything we needed and more.
