We loved the cottage, and found it very comfortable and quiet. Location is very good, and we managed to park on the road nearby all the time. Not good for folk who cannot manage steep stairs, but the owners had provided everything and more for a self catering holiday in a beautiful and tranquil part of North Norfolk, where dogs are welcome.

A very peaceful place, very well situated to walk from with our dog. Well equipped generally with comfortable beds. There are very strict instructions in the property to not allow your dog either upstairs or on the furniture, so if you have a small, anxious dog then possibly not ideal.

Catlin Cottage is very well appointed with good quality fittings and equipment. It is cosy and very warm (no need for wood burner this November), and well located for exploring the area, though it was a bit disappointing that there were no maps and guidebooks. Nice welcome gifts of local apple juice, jam and chocolate.
