Jo Bishop purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Jo Bishop chose Great Yarmouth District
Guests who stay here always remark on the fact that the cottage is in a very quiet and tranquil setting whilst only being a short drive away from stunning sandy beaches at Winterton-on-sea, river access to The Broads at Potter Heigham and a 30 minute drive from Norwich and many family attractions. Great Yarmouth itself offers the normal seaside fun which many families enjoy for a day out. Throughout the year there are many different things to do and see. The Seal colony at Horsey is a 20 minute drive from the cottages and provides wonderful viewing when the pups are born during December and January - fantastic beach walks during Xmas and the New Year - and seals are usually evident along the coast either swimming or sunbathing at other times of the year.

Comfortable, peaceful & relaxing
Lovely cottage, well equipped & homely. Ideal for a peaceful break!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Porters. It was lovely meeting you both, l hope to welcome you again in the future. Best Wishes Jo
Quiet location, well equipped and clean.
The detached cottage is located down a quiet lane in a small hamlet just outside the village of Rollesby. The living dining and kitchen area are open plan with sufficient space for four people. The two bedrooms have ensure facilities and are spacious.
Outside the dog friendly medium sized garden is secure and captures the sun most of the day. It is overlooked by a house opposite and there are houses close by but we didn't see anyone hardly during our stay. This is the only reason I did not give this 5 stars as it was not mentioned in the description
The area is good for exploring the broads and there are lovely beaches within a 15 minute drive where you are almost guaranteed to see seals.
Jo the owner was quick to respond to emails and telephone calls and left us a welcome tray with delicious biscuits.
I would recommend this property to friends.
Lovely cottage set in beautiful, quiet countryside
The cottage is perfectly situated in the Norfolk countryside, a short drive from lovely beaches and great walks. It’s beautifully decorated and Jo, the owner, is very helpful and friendly. We had a great short stay here and will definitely be back to see more! We felt so comfortable in the cottage and there were lots of good pubs just a short drive away if we didn’t want to cook! All in all we were very happy - the dogs included!
The perfect cottage for a peaceful retreat.
The cottage was very comfortable, beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed for our holiday. There was a large, fully enclosed garden for our two Cairn Terrier dogs to roam in. The cottage located at Rollesby, is very convenient for the beach at Winterton (great for dog walking) and the Broads. There was a lovely 'welcome' tray complete with cookies and Jo couldn't have been more helpful. We enjoyed it so much that we will be returning in 2019.
Thank you so much for your lovely review and for being such lovely guests. It's been a pleasure welcoming you and l look forward to seeing you again next year.
Very Best Wishes
Our home from home
Porters Cottage is perfect, our two week home in Norfolk. This was our second year staying and have booked for 2019 and 2020. The location is on a quiet lane with private garden at the rear, perfect for our young daughters to play safely and securely. Everywhere we wish to visit is within a 30 minute trip. Perfect for the Broads, beaches, villages, towns, gardens and Bewilderwood of course. The cottage has everything we need, including a washing machine, needed for a two week stay and dishwasher, needed for me. Jo is the most fantastic host, anything you need just ask and she amazed my girls with her magic trick. We may be bringing along our dog next year which is a brilliant option to have. We were all so sad to leave this year and my youngest was so upset to leave her cottage. So don’t just take my word for it, take hers and she’s 4.
Thank you so much for this incredible review. lts the best feedback to get guests returning year after year. I'm so pleased you and your family enjoy the cottage so much. Looking forward to seeing you next Summer. Jo
