About Mrs. S. Leigh
When I retired from British Airways after flying all over the world for 38 years I realised that I wasn't ready to slow down. I had stayed in some wonderful locations and consequently felt I had a good understanding of what guests would expect and want when searching for holiday accommodation. With that in mind I converted Little Willows 14 years ago and I believe I have achieved a welcoming holiday cottage/B&B. It is still as beautiful now as it was at the start. I am not complaisant though and continually look for ways of improving, adding, changing or refurbishing Little Willows to meet the ever changing requirements for my guests.
Mrs. S. Leigh purchased this Cottage in 1990

A welcome to the haven by Sally and her dog Lola was a nice touch.
Sally was very helpful and showed us around closely followed by Lola.
Great location for touring around Norfolk and nice to come back to after sightseeing.
The property had everything you could want. Just one thing, the weather was not on our side.
Very disappointed! Wouldn't return!
The booking was for 2 adults, 2 children and a dog. They arrived with an extra adult saying it would be for 2 nights which I was not prepared for.
On the third day I discovered that the opening/closing handle on the freezer door had been broken off and the door wouldn't close. I immediately ordered a replacement (£48) so the following guests had a functioning freezer. Nothing was reported to me. On day of departure I noted the broken handle and the guest said it had been like that on arrival. I responded that when guest leave I always defrost and clean the fridge and turn it off before next guests arrive. On the morning of their arrival I switched the fridge on, put the freshly filled ice tray in the freezer while also placing a bottle of wine in the fridge - THE HANDLE WAS IN TACT AND SOUND. I said I hoped to be able to fit the replacement handle to avoid a call out engineer fee. She agreed to the £48 being retained from the damage deposit and demanded a copy of the invoice (later provided).
Their dog did not appear to have a bed and I found dog hair all over the sofa. My dog policy states that dogs are not allowed on the furniture. Dog bedding must be provided or to ask me for a dog bed. I discovered that the purple throw in their room was covered in dog hair and I spent ages removing the hair before sending it to be dry cleaned. I can only imagine it had been put down for the dog!
I found a blue substance (could have been Blue Tack?) stuck on the velvet button back chair and have been unable to remove it.
I was not impressed and extremely disappointed
A very enjoyable stay
A lovely cottage in a very attractive setting. The two en-suite bedrooms ideally suited our requirements and we enjoyed spending time in the lounge area and on the patio as both had views down the garden.
I was there for the night before my wedding with a couple of bridesmaids and a friend. Sally could not do enough for us and is so welcoming and friendly. She has beautiful gardens where we got some great pictures.
Relaxation at Little Willows Norfolk
Little Willows was in the most delightful surroundings of the owner's wonderful gardens & a walk to the woods accessed easily through the garden gate.
The layout with the 2 ensuite bedrooms, kitchen, dining area & sitting room overlooking the terrace, courtyard & garden was perfect.
The owner & her lovely dog (& cat) were very friendly & welcoming, even providing some eggs from the hens in the garden.
The location was ideal for visiting the Broads which is what we did, including the recommended boat trip from Wroxham & the ferry at Reedham.
Although we did not visit Norwich this time the cottage is very conveniently placed for a visit to this wonderful cathedral city.
We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.
Short Norfolk Break
Very well appointed and modern cottage. We stayed as Self-Catering and had all the facilities we needed. Welcomed by Sally, the Proprietor, her friendly dog and cat and some delicious home-made cakes. Sally was an exemplary host and looked after us well.
Cottage is situated close to the Market town of Beccles and within easy reach of Norwich with a choice of two Park & Ride sites but note these are not open on Bank Holidays!
Thank you for taking time to write a few words on your stay. It was lovely to meet both of you and I'm glad the sun shone for your grand children's christening. Shame that for the rest of your visit the weather was not kind. I do hope that it may be kinder on a future visit.
