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.
What makes this Cottage unique

An absolutely fabulous hideaway . Very well looked after and great provision for guests and pets .
We had a wonderful stay here with 3 dogs. The cottage was very comfortable and Jo the owner made us feel so welcome! There are little extras everywhere to make it feel like home from home . Great location for the Broads, coastal beaches and all local amenities yet off the beaten track to be peaceful and relaxing . This is a gem of a cottage and we would highly recommend!
Thank you so much for your review, lm so pleased you enjoyed all the cottage has to offer. Looking forward to welcoming you and your beautiful dogs again next year.
Well equipped and nicely furnished, comfortable cottage in a good location for access to the Broads. We had a very enjoyable stay, plenty to do and lots of places to visit. Fantastic for wildlife. The owner, Jo, was friendly and helpful, but kept out of our way unless needed. We particularly appreciated the tea/coffee/milk/biscuits left at the cottage for our arrival so we could have a cup of tea before going shopping, also nice fresh flowers.
Thank you so much for your review, it really is appreciated. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Porters Cottage.
Beautiful Cottage in excellent location
We looked for a cottage with Character in a quiet location to stay for a week with our 3 dogs and this beautiful cottage was exactly that. The layout of the cottage is ideal and had everything we needed and the enclosed garden was great with the dogs. The location is just right only a short drive to a beach. We did not want to come home and will be booking to go again, would totally recommend.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was lovely meeting you all and l hope to welcome you back again.

A very pleasant cottage
We were a party of four and were happy staying here. Jo the owner made a point of welcoming us on arrival. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, there were fresh flowers and biscuits as a welcome too. The heating was good, it was programmed twice a day, but we were told how to override the system if we needed to. We would recommend this property to our family and friends without hesitation.
Thankyou for taking the time to review Porters Cottage, its very much appreciated. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would recommend to others. Thankyou once again.
