Lovely. Extremely comfortable, cosy, clean cottage
Beautifully appointed, well equipped, comfortable accommodation. Conveniently situated for trips to Ely and Norwich, and extremely good value for money. We all appreciated the care that had been taken to ensure visitors enjoy their stay. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Many thanks for your kind review, we were pleased you found everything to suit your needs for a comfortable stay, you would be most welcome back in the future.Kind Regards Maria and Dave.
Fantastic cottage, very clean, well equipped, cosy, comfortable and in a good location. Highly recommend.
Absolutely beautiful cottage
I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, everything was perfect, it was spotless on our arrival with all the things you could possibly need, from a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival for that much needed cup of tea to the 3D tv with DVD and blueray films for our enjoyment, my daughter discovered a love of chess which was among the many board games provided, everything about the cottage is perfect, the Village of Northwold in which the cottage is situated is only minutes from Thetford Forest which affords some wonderful walks, if you like jet planes RAF Lakenheath is just a short drive where you can watch fighter jets take off and land, truly breathtaking.
My family can't wait to return in the future.
Dear Stuart, many thanks for your wonderful review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Swallow Cottage, we would love to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards Maria and Dave.
A wonderfully cosy and peaceful weekend
My family and I had a lovely weekend in Swallow cottage! The weather may not have been kind to us but we enjoyed some lovely local short walks and bike rides knowing we had an immaculately clean and cosy cottage to return to. We loved the separate breakfast and dining rooms and the girls loved the 3d TV! We have already recommended to our friends and plan to return in the warmer months. Also a huge thank you to Maria for returning by post my daughters books she left behind, she was so happy opening her package this morning!
Many thanks for your wonderful review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Swallow Cottage, hope to see you back in the warmer months, the patio is a real sun trap. Kind Regards Maria and Dave.
Great cottage, full of character. The best beds ever!
Delightful cottage, tastefully done and with everything you may need
Dear Federico, thank you for you kind review, we are so pleased you had an enjoyable stay at Swallow Cottage, you would be most welcome if you choose to say again.Regards Maria and Dave.
We had a delightful and memorable Christmas at Swallow cottage and felt the owners had made a real effort to make the cottage look festive. The mince pies, biscuits and Christmas crackers were a lovely touch. The cottage is tastefully furnished with high quality furnishings and had everything we needed for our stay. It was warm and extremely comfortable and we could have happily stayed for longer. Northwold is a delightful village with many historic buildings. I hope the pub reopens in the future.
Dear Kristel, thank you for wonderful review,we are so pleased you had a enjoyable Christmas at Swallow Cottage,you would be most welcome back should you wish to return in the future.best wishes Maria and Dave.
