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.

A wonderful week in a lovely cottage and location. The cottage had everything we needed, the welcome gifts were a nice touch. Recommend the smokehouse and deli in Cley and although we only had drinks at the George and Dragon it seemed a very welcoming pub.

Highly recommend the beach at Brancaster and Sheringham has lots to offer, great seafood shop especially. Hide

We spent a fantastic week away in Cley. The cottage was perfect for two, but a bit of a squeeze for four adults. Its finished to a high standard and is tucked away from the main road. I would highly recommend it and hope to return.

A 'hidden' jewel of a place, tucked away off the main thoroughfare of Cley - the cottage is finished to a very high standard, beautifully decorated rooms and well appointed, esp. in terms of kitchen facilities and equipment (with exception of lack of washing machine/dryer onsite and lack of storage space in Bedroom 2). The wood burner added a very Read morecosy feel for our Winter stay too. My sense is that the space would feel a little 'tight' for more than 2 adults staying but otherwise, perfect! Hide

Beautifully decorated and very clean. However no washing machine for a fortnights holiday was a nuisance. There was nowhere to store food though the equipment available indicated a busy kitchen. The stairs were noted as narrow and 180 degrees but the treads were very narrow and carrying a suitcase upstairs was dangerous. Really the description of aRead more cottage for 4 people means a family of four as there is very little facility for hanging clothes in the second bedroom. Hide
