The hut is in a beautiful location in a very nice village, with lots to see and do close by. It was generally very quiet, although the noise from Snetterton Race circuit was a bit intrusive on the last two days. it is small but has everything and was lovely place to stay. Very clean and the hosts were very friendly and responsive.

Booked a weeks stay at kingfisher hut. We knew the hut would be small, that wasn't a problem. The problem was none of the windows could be opened. During our stay temperatures ranged from 32-38 degrees, the heat was unbearable without being able to open windows. Another big problem was constant daily noise from near by race circuit ( motor bike racRead moreing everyday) and also constant barking from boarding kennels located in same lane, not a peaceful holiday at all, not worth the money.

We loved sitting outside this small unique hut . Saw kingfishers & heard unusual birds all day. A family of geese visited us throughout the day. Locally the walks are beautiful and monk Jack dear are seen every day. A quiet place to stay, however, the weekends can be noisy as there is a race track close by. The races start shortly after 9 am and goRead more on all day both on Saturday and Sunday. Overall just what we expected location and wildlife wise: fantastic weather was a bonus . Recommend Hide

I really enjoyed my short break at Kingfisher Hut. The space is bijou, but has what you need. I spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the views and birdwatching, including an early morning experience of the wonderful dawn chorus. It made for the relaxing few days I needed. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
