We had a happy stay at Bow Cottage which is well equipped, warm and comfortable with a thoughtful welcome pack - everything we needed for our stay. Unfortunately the only thing that let Bow Cottage down was the standard of cleaning. This is very easy to put right and hopefully the owner is now aware and will sort out this issue for future holidaymaRead morekers. Hide

A lovely little flint cottage. Very comfortable and well equipped. Great location for us and easy walk into Holt. Maybe parking advice for a second car could be given if two sets of adults going? We struggled with the volume on the tv and found hob a little tricky to get started, so maybe some instructions for that would be good. Thank-you for a grRead moreeat stay and the directions to get there were clear and the cottage folder useful. Hide

Very disappointing. Cheaply furnished, poorly equipped in the kitchen, poorly maintained, and dirty. A detailed list of the defects, supported by numerous photographs has been provided to the managing agent in the hope that the owners will take the necessary action. This cottage could be delightful but at present it falls a long way short.

Well located a 10 minute walk from Holt centre. Spacious lounge and well equipped kitchen, however the second bedroom is not really large enough for two single beds. Ideally the cottage is only suitable for a couple.

We loved this cottage. It was modern, bright, clean and for two people roomy. With four occupants it could be tight for lounge and bathroom use, but the kitchen extension was generous and very spacious. Location to Holt centre was good - just a short walk away.

Overall a nice stay. The cottage was comfortable, clean, and reasonably equiped. The only other comment i have is that the parking is very tight, if you have a bigger car, but can be done. The location is good for visiting areas of north Norfolk.

We really enjoyed our week in this cottage. The small town of Holt is very pretty as is the local area. We particularly enjoyed the wildlife we saw in North Norfolk, the birds of course but also many hares and deer.
