"The cottage is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. So much attention to detail it really made our trip to Norfolk extra special, thank you!"
Whistle Stop is a characterful, dog friendly cottage built in 1886 which sleeps six people in three bedrooms. There is a good village pub which serves food and a shop with post office as well as a children's play area on the far side of the green, making the property perfect for a couples or family holiday. There is off-road parking for one car on the front drive, and further parking for two more cars on the back drive. Outside there is a south facing garden with table and chairs and a small decking area, again with chairs so you can follow the sun around the garden. There is a lovely summer house with electricity which offers another place to relax on a nice day. Cyclists will be able to store their bicycles in a lockable shed. Please note there is a pond which, although isn’t deep and is very small, it is advised to keep children supervised.
"We had a fabulous week in this beautiful cottage! Thoughtfully decorated and furnished with lots of little extras which helped make our stay just perfect!"
We love dogs and welcome two to enjoy your holiday with you at Whistle Stop. A lovely welcome pack is supplied so you can enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee after a long journey. Enjoy!
