Self-Catering Reviews

The cottage is in a nice location at the end of the lane.. However, this cottage is in need of some TLC. The oven needs replacing as unable to read dials and also needs a very good clean; with oven trays being rusty. Skirting boards were dirty which need a good clean and paint. The shower is very small and the seals are discoloured on the screen, which made it particularly unpleasant. We felt that the cottage was more suited for couples as we had a lot of discomfort and seating for 4 adults would be difficult. Bathroom is situated in the main bedroom however is shared between all guests therefore you have to walk into the main bedroom to get to it, which is very awkward. So if you come out of the twin room you will be entering the master bedroom which is again awkward.

The cottage in a good quiet location.. Cleaners left all cups and glasses dirty . Dishwasher required both salt or rinse aid which the cleaners should have noticed. Doors especially upstairs need a coat of paint and shower not pheasant with cracked tiles and brown stained sealant. The above not good but the worse part was the garden , obviously not been touched this year , full of weeds, over hanging hedges, rubbish cuttings from last year dumped at the side of the cottage . Broken tiles and sleepers . The garden could be really nice if time and care spent maintaining it.

The cottage is in a quiet lane, a peaceful location, and we enjoyed our few days here.. We went in March and the kitchen was very cold, having just a small floor-level fan heater. The living room and bedroom each had an electric radiator which were efficient, but we had trouble keeping the woodburner alight - either the dampers aren't working properly, the chimney needs sweeping or maybe the wood is too green. No lovely cosy fire unfortunately! The kitchen is well-equipped, the bed and pillows comfortable. The garden is secure for pets. The stairs may be tricky for some as they are the traditional Norfolk winder staircase which are often found in these little cottages.

Very relaxing and quiet as we wanted peaceful surroundings.. The cottage was the right size for our base and we were close to shops when needed. The local countryside was beautiful and we really enjoyed the whole cottage experience.

A welcome pack would be nice, especially when arriving after dark on a Friday evening to find no milk, tea, etc and only kindling, no logs.. Perhaps a warning also about the low doorways. Judging by the comments in the Visitors Book I wasn't the only person to back my head on numerous occasions!

Cottage warm and comfortable but settee very uncomfortable.. Unfortunately we have always had a welcome pack, if only milk and biscuits but there was nothing at all. Blind in kitchen broken, sink plunger very stiff in bathroom and bathroom door top hinge very loose. We left them note about these . Could have done with list of Doc, dentist, vets numbers. Couldn't find any or bin days.just little niceties we come to expect of Sykes

We had a lovely 5 days at Broom Cottage.. It is a charming little cottage, the weather wasn't kind so we especially appreciated the log burner. The cottage is in a lovely quiet location, but well placed for days out with the dog, and we were super impressed with how dog friendly Norfolk is. We had everything we needed to self cater for the week, and everything was clean and fresh. There are instructions for all appliances and helpful guides in the welcome pack. We are planning our return visit.

This a nice cottage in a good location, and with good facilities we particularly liked having a dishwasher.. The outside area was very private and we enjoyed sitting on the patio listening to the birds. The only reason we will not return is because we are getting old and I am almost 70 and my wife has severe arthritis in her hands and feet and we both found climbing the stair difficult.

Very cosy, comfortable cottage.. Thank you for the logs . . . . we enjoying making use of the log burner. Great location for birdwatching. We did struggle a little with the shower - but that was a very minor point!

Broom Cottage is charming, very compact, but well set up with everything required.. The wood burner makes it cosy in the evenings and the enclosed garden is a great benefit, especially if you have dogs. The location is quiet and peaceful although just a few minutes walk to the Rainbow shop and the Crown pub, both excellent, plus the wonderful coastline and the many pretty North Norfolk towns and villages all within easy reach.

Lovely secluded cottage in a very quiet backwater.. Very picturesque and pretty. Great base for exploring the North Norfolk coast. Wells about 15 minutes away. The cottage was tastefully decorated with neutral walls and furnishings. Internet fast and strong (an essentail these days!). The kitchen was well laid out with everything you would expect in a modern home. Clean and very functional. The village was pretty with an excellent pub and Cafe. The pub was very tasteful with friendly staff. The holiday was very restful and our lovely Cavestie enjoyed the enclosed and safe back garden. Will use again.

Village shop covered basic needs but has stopped selling papers.. Pub is good but the prices are slightly above average.

We had a fantastic week in late August at Broom Cottage.. Perfect for families with youngish kids, probably wouldn't recommend for four adults or families with older kids especially if they are tall. The back garden and patio were much bigger than expected which was nice. The kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. Having read previous reviews we turned up with towels, dishcloths, tea towels and Cillit Bang mould remover etc but didn't need any of them. Handy for the north Norfolk coast including old Hunstanton, Brancaster and Cromer, our favourite was Wells / Holkham Bay but it was all lovely. The village of East Rudham is lovely too, with an excellent butcher who smokes his own bacon and the Rainbow Stores is brilliant too. The kids want to go back next year!

Lovely cottage in a lovely location.. Only negative was they could do with replacing the sofa and shower.

We were on a local painting course and the location suited us perfectly (just a 5 min drive to the school).. We enjoyed visiting the beaches locally. We enjoyed seeing Walsingham and we also visited Holt. The cottage fulfilled our needs perfectly. Thank you very much.

Cottage was smaller than expected But we managed The garden was over grow with weeds and brambles While we were out Someone came and cleared some of the weeds I think we should have been informed that they were coming Or should have been done on change over day There was also a lot of rubbish left outside the property We did clear up and get rid of most of it when bin men come But you don’t expect to clear other people’s rubbish

Lovely cosy cottage.. Very well equipped. Peaceful area and great for long walks with the dogs. However the garden really needs urgent attention, could do with another 2 seater sofa rather than the single chair especially if there are 4 people staying. Baking trays need renewing !!! We took our own sun loungers, pleased we did as the ones there were very dirty.

The cottage lacked TLC both in and out.. We only had one toilet roll in the bathroom. There were no bin bags in the kitchen, towels, dish clothes, or hand soap.After banging my head a couple of times on the door frame you do remember to duck. It was quite central to everywhere. We will definately visit Norfolk again, and stay at the cottage with the changes done. The only down side to the holiday, we broke down on the way home but it was our last day, and we got home with thanks to the AA. This is our second time through Sykes and we will use them again next time.

The garden was in need of some tlc.. Very overgrown bushes and plants. Stinging nettles weeds and brambles all around the garden back and front. The cottage could have been cleaner. Dried dog food at the side of the fridge. Skirting boards very dirty. Shower cubicle by the sink disgustingly dirty. Second bedroom very basic. No wardrobe and put u up beds. Which were actually conformable. At truly gorgeous little cottage and in a very quiet location in a lovely village. Suitable really for two. Not suitable for a family of four. As there is not enough storage in the bedrooms and only one sofa and a single chair in the lounge. We had a lovely week in Norfolk and the weather was lovely too. My son hit he's head many times on the low door frames. So you must be careful of that.

I think that people who have asthma should be warned that the bedding in made with feathers.. More than that in the small bedroom there is quite a lot of mould at the head of the bed and the inhabitant is therefore breathing in spores. It was a nice little cottage for two although the shower was very small and the kitchen could have done with a few more kitchen instruments. I liked the cottage but not the damp in several places.
Mr Fisher
March 2018
The cottage was very charming but we hit on a problem as soon as we arrived on the Saturday.. The smell of damp in the kitchen was very strong and so I had a good look around to find there was a bowl under the sink overflowing with stagnant water complete with spores. I tried to remove the bowl but soon realised the S bend was obstructing it. Also I was mindful of causing a greater problem. I contacted you but did not hear further. I also tried to contact the owner but did not get a response. On the Monday I contacted you again and soon heard from the owner who then came over to deal with the problem. She arranged for a plumber to call the next day to fully resolve the matter. However the main issue here is that I should not have been faced with this problem. The management and cleaning is clearly lacking and it was quite apparent the bowl of water had been there for some time. I appreciate the weekly rent was quite reasonable but there is a minimum standard and quite honestly I felt that some furnishing was tired and dated ie bed and sofa.
