About Mr ken walker
Retired having moved up from West London. Now living just a mile or two from the property being let. Bought the property as an investment and have been holiday letting it for 5 years now. The property is maintained by me and is part hobby part income. Not had any problems with holidaymakers and enjoy meeting them.
Mr ken walker purchased this Bungalow in 2005
Why Mr ken walker chose North Walsham
Looking for somewhere quieter to live than West London looked at all the home counties, even lived in Somerset for 2 years, tried further north and discovered North Norfolk. It's got everything !
What makes this Bungalow unique
The bungalow is located in my view, in a perfect location which is why I live in the town. In the area are many leisure facilities, sandy beaches, piers, the Broads lakes, nice countryside for walks, pubs and teashops etc. Norwich for shopping either in the excellent malls or in the narrow ancient streets with it's many small shops. Historical interest is great with it's Norman castle and Cathedral. All this with easy driving and no traffic jams. Norfolk is also the dryest county so more sun and less rain ! The bungalow itself is located just on the edge of the market town so there are no dark muddy lanes just a short walk to the town centre or a pub for a meal. The bungalow is a modern one and fitted out for comfort.

A great stay at the bungalow once again.
We had a great stay at the bungalow in North Walsham, and would go back tomorrow if we could ,and Ken was very helpful.
Hi, nice to see you both again, glad that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for leaving the bungalow clean and tidy. Best wishes. Ken
This property was exactly as described in the advertisment and the photo's give a true reflection of the layout. We were pleasantly surprised.
As a family all our needs were met in this property which provided a good base from which to explore the surrounding area and further a field. There are still places we would like to visit as we ran out of time and so we would have no hesitation in booking again or in recommending the property to our family and friends. In fact if we were returning to the area we would be disappointed if the property was not available!
The owner gave us clear and accurate instructions for our arrival and was friendly and a pleasure to do business with.
Even if you have no idea of where to visit in the area the owner has a vast wealth of ideas in the information left in the property.
The garden was pleasant to sit in at the end of the day especially as we were lucky to have some good weather, though we did not use the barbeque it was all there for use.
The neighbourhood was quiet and felt safe.
Thanks for the good review, glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Rye. Nice to meet you all. You were perfect guests and always welcome.
Our holiday at 'The Rye' - July 2011
We had a great holiday at 'The Rye' !!!
The booking process was very simple and easy to follow. The bungalow is in excellent condition, well appointed and maintained with beautiful gardens. The rear garden is totally enclosed with good quality comfortable furniture. 'The Rye' is very well equipped and provided us with an excellent base for our holiday. The information provided by the owners was very accurate.
We spent most of our time touring the various coastal areas and the Broads. We really enjoyed the boat tour we took on 'Princess Katharine' from Herbert Woods boatyard at Potter Heigham. It lasted 2.5 hours and took us as far as South Walsham Broad. The skipper was excellent and he provided a very good commentary during the cruise.
We ate at the Bluebell pub just around the corner from 'The Rye' and it was good value for money. We also enjoyed the New Inn at Roughton, a mixture of Asian and English cuisine, the Crown at Banningham but our favourite was the Fur and Feather at Woodbastwick - excellent food in a great setting with it's own brewery !!!
I would have no hesitation in recommending 'The Rye' to anyone looking for a good base in North Norfolk. If you choose to stay here you won't be disappointed.
Thanks for your comments. It was a pleasure meeting you all and agree about the Fur and Feather. hope you went on to Ranworth Broad just up the road, well worth a visit.
A Very Comfortable Stay
The bungalow was very comfortable,clean and well kept.The area was quiet and peaceful. Lovely garden.There was lots of info on places to visit and things to do which were very helpful. There is a pub and restaurant close by.The pub was average but would recommend the restaurant.
We don't usually go back to the same place twice, but I would recommend to family and friends
Thanks for the review Michelle it was a pleasure to have you both stay.
Yet another perfect stay
Just wanted to thank you for providing perfect accommodation for our return visit.
It's very rare for us to visit a cottage a second time and find it exactly as it was remembered the first time. In fact with the replacement of the sofa/chairs and the extra touches it was even better. We had opportunity to sit out in the garden in the sunshine and watch all the birds enjoying your many feeders.
What made the break for us this time was our boating trip on the broads. Thanks to your recommendation, we had a most fantastic day. We were lucky to go on the Thursday which was the warmest and sunniest day of the week, secured the last boat for hire and had a wonderful 6 hours pootling from Wroxham to Ranworth and exploring the various broads en-route. Even the dog had a brilliant time and kept pulling to go back on the boat when we moored. Had the weather been less damp on Friday we'd have booked again and gone the other way to Coltishall.
We will be recommending The Rye to all our friends and family.
Thanks for your kind comments Mike. I'm glad that you and your family enjoyed your second stay at The Rye and your well behaved spaniel enjoyed the boat trip. Hope to see you all again in the future. Best wishes.
Review of The Rye 9/11/2010
We are a family of 4 with a 10 yr old and a 15yr old son. Who would have thought such a quiet out of the way place like North Walsham would have so much to offer. We all thouroughly enjoyed our stay, the bungalow was spotless and obviously loved by Ken and his family. All the little extras that a mum has to think of were already in place. Even the garden was a joy to explore. We don't want to say too much in case we jeopardise our chances of booking 2 weeks next time. We are all looking forward to a return visit - there's a lot of unfinished business in Norfolk to explore !!
Thanks for the great review Karen / Chris. It was a pleasure to have you stay and nice to know that our efforts to make people feel comfortable and at home are appreciated. I enjoy meeting and having a chat with guests and it is a nice feeling when you read their comments in the guestbook and know they went home having enjoyed a good holiday. Thanks again and hope to see you all again in the future.
