Everything about the cottage is outstanding.. Lin is superb, nothing too much trouble. I had a problem with my car and within 10 minutes Lin took me down to the local garage who attended to the problem immediately. That's what I call brilliant.
Mr Broomhead, September 2020
Lyn and David were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us..
Mrs Gomersall, August 2020
A perfect getaway.. Quiet - beautiful surroundings. Space to breathe.
Lovely table setting and flowers on arrival - thank you to the host.
Mrs Charles, August 2020
W had a really excellent stay, it was quiet peaceful and relaxing.. Everything was cleaned to a high standard and any worries regarding the current situation was dissipated and we were reassured by Lyn who met us on arrival who explained in detail what we needed to know.
Mr Harper, August 2020
The cottage was set in nice peaceful surroundings, it was clean and tidy and made a great base to explore from.. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Miss Fairbrother, August 2020
Cosy, warm and very comfortable - everything you needed and more was provided.. Lyn is a very nice lady and is happy to help where she can. Would definitely recommend
The cottage is situated on a stud farm in a quiet village which we thought would be idyllic - unfortunately not - as building work taking place 30 feet away, with the resulting noise, mud and machinery, means that you are constantly taking mud into your car and the cottage kitchen! There are no fences around the building site and no lights outside the cottage, so very dangerous at night! Our family visited one evening and not being able to see to drive away, ended up in a drainage ditch!
The owner had kindly left a good welcome pack, unfortunately it had been placed in a dirty fridge so I had to take the food out to clean the fridge before placing our food inside! Kitchen cupboards and oven very sticky and dirty, with lots of half used jars and cereals inside - don't know how long they had been there!
Bathroom very dusty and dirty and grey hairs in the bin, again used toiletries, sponges and bath puffs, completely unhygienic!
On the good side the living room beautifully dressed for Christmas!
Tried to address issues with the owner but very defensive and left before I could bring all issues up. Had we not travelled from Scotland for a family party we would have left the first day, however we did leave after the car accident as the owner was shouting at my husband that she would not accept liability because it was her builder's fault there was no fencing. Subsequently owner and her husband stopped shouting but still denied all responsibility! Currently ongoing with agency complaints department!
Very comfortable cottage, has everything you could possibly need.. Surrounded by fields and countryside. It is also nice to wander around the livery and meet the horses.
Very close to Norwich and the coast for days out.
Extremely generous breakfast pack included.
Before arrival I was telephoned, received a short introduction and was offered more information if I tendered my email address to facilitate the sending of cottage and locality information which was most kind and helpful.. On arrival after a long journey, and with only being able to give a vague indication of arrival time we were greeted personally and shown around.....Not the usual "Find a key in a box and here is the security code"!
We were shown around the cottage, its facilities and equipment, some basic foodstuffs [milk, butter, sausages, bacon, cereals, bread, jams] which were supplied to us lest we arrive outside of shop opening times, and two bottles of wine! Again we were told the location of local restaurants, pubs, and shops. This personal touch is so rare nowadays and most welcome.
The cottage was immaculate, clean and everything worked....more rare than one would imagine!
On departure day we again received the owner's cheery smile without any pressure as to time of departure. I was just turning the dishwasher on and hoovering but I was told that was not necessary!
I offer holiday accommodation myself so I know the importance of per arrival information and meeting and greeting so I was cheered that some others shared my own attention to detail!
I would have no hesitation in returning for another visit, and in recommending this cottage to friends.
Definitely recommend 2 Stud Cottage, warm and cosy but not small as photos appear to suggest, immaculate throughout, very comfortable bed, pillows, sofas etc.. Tastefully furnished and decorated with attention to detail. Kitchen equipment good. Full control of central heating system. Sky TV in lounge and bedroom a plus. Wonderful rainfall shower with power handheld attachment as well as a bath. Easy off road parking in countryside surroundings. Very generous ‘welcome pack’. Thank you Lin. Would recommend Farm to Fork butchers/deli opposite The Recruiting Sergeant.
A few details no longer apply as there have been changes of the property e.. G. the bathroom and no dressing room. However the accommodation is bright spacious and well equipped for a family stay. We appreciated the breakfast pack- it lasted 3 days! And although no wine, we had juice instead which suited as visited the last week of "Stoptober".
We stopped for a couple of nights in this comfortable and clean cottage around 20 mins drive from Norwich.. Although ours was only a weekend stay and we didn’t spend much time there or do any cooking, it’s really well-equipped and I’m sure would be a good base for a longer stay. Lin the owner was very helpful and accommodated our late arrival by leaving the keys in a safe place.
The owner (Lin) was extremely friendly and the cottage spotless.. ...... we have stayed in many sykes cottages over the years but cannot remember one being as well equipped......... from different types of cut glass wine glasses (for the complimentary 2 bottles) to intimidate lighting...........We will be going back!!
The cottage was really lovely and had all you would need and more.. The makings for a full English breakfast was provided along with two delicious bottles of wine. The decor was lovely and the cottage was prestinely clean. It definitely exceeded expectations
The cottage was warm, cosy and comfortable, very welcoming.. The facilities in the cottage were excellent with a well equipped kitchen and bathroom. It was spotlessly clean. The owner was very helpful and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and she communicated with us throughout our stay. We would definitely recommend it and stay again ourselves. In fact we enjoyed it so much we stayed and extra night.
Nice accommodation in a really good location for Norwich, the Broads and the North Norfolk coast.. Good facilities and a very nice welcome pack. Very handy for the Park and Ride into Norwich.
Fabulous hosts! Everything you could possibly need! Clean, comfortable and super breakfast pack included! Brilliantly located so not too many "are we there yets"! Many thanks for such a lovely week!
Beautiful property with everything provided that you can think of.. Arrived to find eggs, bacon, sausages, bread, butter, milk and even two bottles of wine as a welcoming pack. Lovely thought after a long journey. Sky TV in Lounge and both bedrooms. All in all A home from home.
The cottage was lovely and the location was very calm and peaceful.. They had a mare who was expecting to give birth in a weeks time so it was an interesting experience to see her, she was lovely. We had nice welcome from lin and there was lots of information on the area which we had not visited before. We had amazingly warm, sunny weather, very enjoyable.
This was our 5th visit to this property, standards have been maintained over this time and Lyn really does wish that her clients do enjoy their stay..
Lin gave us a very warm welcome, and everything was provided for our comfort.. A peaceful location, with easy access to coast, Broads, river walks and Norwich using the Park and Ride.
I will return again to this lovely cottage. A beautifully relaxing setting and a comfortable and a well appointed accommodation. The owner is friendly and helpful and even though we arrived late after a long journey we were delighted not to have go out again that night as she had stocked us up with breakfast items for a cooked breakfast and a couple of bottles of wine- what a great start to our stay!
The cottage was very clean, and the beds were comfortable. We occasionally heard the resident horses in the morning, something we quite enjoyed as part of the country experience, and although the cottage is part of a working farm we didn't feel that this impacted on our stay.
The stud farm is a great place to stay.. Lin the owner is very welcoming. We found it a very relaxing place to stay. Great welcome pack. Plenty to see and do around the countryside.
First class all round.
The cottage is connected to the farmhouse with lots of land with stables
It is Modern with all you need for a perfect stay
And it is within easy reach of all nearby attractions
When we arrived we were met by the owner and she give us a tour around to get familiar with the property
The was also a breakfast pack with 2 bottles of wine
Our stay was one of the best relaxing and enjoyable stays we have had
MANY THANKS will return
Great value for money.. stairs a little steep if you have mobility problems. but overall a very enjoyable holiday thank you very much.
We had a lovely week at this property. Lin the owner was lovely and very welcoming and the provisions she had provided us were fantastic. The cottage was spotless and smelled very clean and inviting. Fresh flowers were also in the living room. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be going back. Near to local pub restaurant and easy to get to local village shops which were 10 minutes drive away. It is also a short drive to the park and ride to Norwich and convenient for the airport. Set in lovely surroundings . I would recommend this to couples or families.
A fantastic property in a great location. Would definitely recommend staying here again.
We were instantly made to feel as if it was our own home. This Cottage was as described and more, we had a lovely relaxing time. The kitchen was stocked in a way we had not expected and the beds were so comfortable
This must be the quietest place that my wife and I have stayed at, a perfect antidote to the normal hassle and bustle of normal life in our usual daily environment. We enjoyed our holiday, especially this cosy, comfortable, extremely clean and well furnished cottage. Wonderful!
This was our first visit to Stud Cottage, and hopefully it will not be the last.
It is a large, very well equipped, beautifully furnished cottage on a quiet stud farm well away from the hustle and bustle.
The were certain appliances in the kitchen which needed a good clean, but considering the group who had stayed in the cottage recently, this was maybe understandable, and the owner is fully aware of this.
Looking forward to the next visit.
Absolutely perfect. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked next October and next Xmas! This is without doubt the best cottage we have stayed at.
A little taste of paradise. Stud Cottage has such a cosy comfortable feel the minute you walk through the door, you feel relaxed, all you need and more is contained in the cottage and the views just complete the setting.
We loved staying in Stud Cottage, very peaceful and comfortable. Furnishings were first class and owner very helpful. Would definitely consider returning some time.
The property was stunning and we would thoroughly recommend this holiday to anyone.
A lovely cottage in a fabulous location. It was brilliantly equipped with everything you could ever need in the kitchen.
A very peaceful and comfortable Cottage within easy reach of the coast, towns and attractions. Owner was lovely, very helpful and friendly. The Cottage was well equipped and 4 TV's were a bonus! Would definitely recommend to family and friends if visiting this area. Had a lovely week. Fab time had by all. Thank you.
Had a very welcoming and helpful host. It was an excellent place for quiet relaxation in delightful rural surroundings, but in easy reach of Norwich.
We loved watching the foal and the horses from the kitchen window. The owner was extremely helpful and generous. The cottage is furnished and designed inside to a high standard and feels just like home.
The garden and paddock were fantastic. The kids loved the space to play and the animals. Also the location was very central and so perfect to explore Norfolk. The owner was very helpful and friendly. A generally well equipped and well kept cottage. Would love to go back one day.
We liked the rural and peaceful location but still near many places of interest. Also the homely feel through the cottage and the tasteful details in every room. All in all a place to happily return to.
Liked everything; waking up in the morning hearing the birds and the horses, looking out the window and seeing fields. Feels really homely and I'll rate everything about this cottage 10 out of 10. Definitely highly recommend.
Everything was first class. The cottage was very well equipped and the owner was very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
Six of us had booked the cottage as a bolt hole after Christmas and to see in the New Year. The cottage was warm, cosy and very welcoming. It provided an ideal base for our stay and we would not hesitate to return or recommend to our family and friends.
Great cottage and lovely amenities. Absolutely amazing little touches from the owner and the welcome pack was much appreciated. Loved waking up to hearing the horses in their stables. The second bathroom could do with a more powerful shower. I can't wait to return.
Our second stay at cottage and we are p[eased tp report that standards have been maintained so as to make for an excellent break and stay.
Had a fabulous stay at the property. Lots of extras when we arrived which really made us feel looked after. The property itself was lovely and comfortable with great wi-fi connection enabling us to keep in touch with family and friends and also search the area for places of interest.
A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The owner was really friendly and helpful and even stocked the kitchen with food. Beautiful decor and a lovely place to spend a few days.
A real home from home, fantastic.
Great host, well presented, homely and great outlook. Would highly recommend the stay!
A really nice Cottage which was very roomy well equipped. Felt very at home and comfortable.
The Cottage was lovely, we felt very relaxed and at home there. I've never been in such a well stocked Cottage before. The owner was a great help to us and the welcome food she left us was very much appreciated. My children adored being so close to the horses. We will definitely book this Cottage again in the future, I can't recommend it highly enough.
This is our second stay at this cottage and just as before the standard is exceptional. It's just like a home from home, excellent stocked kitchen and furnishings. The owner is lovely and very helpful. I have no doubt we will be back again!
Lovely cottage with a homely feel.
Lovely cosy cottage, beautiful location, would thoroughly recommend!!
One of the best cottages I have stayed in, comfortable and well equipped. A real home from home. A very warm welcome from the owner and we appreciated the generous welcome pack. In a lovely quiet position surrounded by countryside, yet near the pretty Broadlands area. Will recommend to friends.
My second stay here, the best self catering cottage I have ever stayed in!
Outstanding property, very friendly and helpful owner. Couldnt have asked for a better holiday cottage. Will definitely be back.
The owner and staff were very helpful and friendly. The cottage was warm and comfortable. It was nice to have a decorated Christmas tree. A very quiet area, ideal location for exploring the North and East coast of Norfolk.
The cottage is located just outside Coltishall, a small Broadland village on the Norfolk Broads. The owner a lovely lady welcomed us personally. As we arrived just before Christmas, we were most delighted to be welcomed with a fully lit Christmas tree in the lounge and a fully decorated Christmas dinner table. A lovely little cottage in a peaceful location close to Norwich and the Broadland Villages of Coltishall, Wroxham and Horning.
On arrival I immediately felt at home, the proprietor was very friendly and showed me round the cottage and how to work all the utilities. The cottage was extremely well furnished, tastefully finished and stocked with everything you could possibly require. I will definitely recommend this cottage to my friends and family.
Probably the best cottage that we have rented. Fixtures and fittings were excellent quality. Very comfortable indeed. A lovely warm welcome when we got there. All in all a great place to stay, lots within easy reach. If you want somewhere in Norfolk to stay, definitely consider this place.
A warm welcome from owner was much appreciated. Comfortable property. Home from home. Great venue and space outside. Hoping to return.
The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and has everything we needed. The location is good, 20 minutes from nearest beaches, and 20 minutes from the nearest city. We had a great time and would definitely go again.
The cottage was remarkable, so many things that it was like home from home.
The setting was beautiful and the cottage was very homely and very well equipped for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The owner greeted us personally and was always friendly. Loads of things to do round and about - we were sad to leave and we'd love to return one day. Beautiful horses too... what more could we ask for?
Although the weather was cold we had a lovely time .The cottage is delightful and the owner was very friendly.
A lovely cottage in a peaceful location. Kids really loved seeing the horses. The house is very well equipped, warm and comfortable. Loads of room for the kids to run about. The food pack provided free of charge by the owner was really appreciated. Sky TV in the living room and bedrooms kept the kids happy in the mornings.
We always enjoy coming to Norfolk but it was lovely to stay in a warm, comfortable cottage and receive a personal welcome from the owner. The groceries provided were a really nice touch along with the flowers and wine. We will look forward to staying here again.
The best holiday cottage I have ever had the pleasure to stay in! It was comfortable, clean. This cottage ticks all the boxes.
The best holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in. Yes there was 1 builder on site called Ray ( his the resident handy man along with his lovely wife Viv, who is the cleaner ) They were helpful, friendly & did not leer through windows, as another review stated! Yes the Gardens are huge open fields...but there is a pond, a bar be que, a high quality patio table with 6 large ergo friendly chairs & horses in the fields. We loved it! The shower in the bathroom has a radio, foot massager & even doubles up as a steam room. The whole cottage was extremely clean. The provisions were above & beyond...Ice cream in the freezer, jams, butter, milk, orange juice, bacon, eggs...Child friendly & excellent value for money. Also during our stay a foal was born which enchanted my children.
It was very warm and cosy.

Great location. My sister in law commented that it was better equipped than her own house. Can't fault it and have recommended to anyone who we have spoken to about our holiday.
This cottage is excellent and the facilities second to none. We really enjoyed our break and will be back!
We took 3 children (2,5 and 7) who loved the property! The grounds gave lots of play areas and loved relaxing outside using the gazebo and large outdoor dining table. Property was well beyond expected and there were lots of additional touches that made it a very homely stay. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble - we will be back one day!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stud Cottage. A wonderful cottage. So cosy and everything we needed. We had a walk round the farm and the kids loved seeing the horses. A lovely welcome pack awaited us and lovely people around the farm and very helpful. Very quiet and close enough to places for things to do.
This cottage is excellent throughout. Seeing the mare and her foal every day was very special. The owner was very welcoming and had organised things to perfection.
It was very very peaceful, the lady who owned it was extremely kind and friendly. There were all sorts of little extras around the house which made it welcoming and it felt like home from home. The paddocks outside had beautiful horses and it was wonderful to see them.
The peace and quiet of the farm, and the bird-life. We must express our thanks and appreciation of the generous welcome pack the owner left for us.
The cottage was obviously newly completed and furnished to a high standard. Friendly owner on site some of the time to answer any queries.
Very good location to investigate a lot of Norfolk. Very good beaches close by. Lovely property and very friendly owner. We had a great time and would definitely recommend and return.
Staying with three small children, the property was fantastic. Lovely garden for children to play in. The gazebo was great to eat under. The facilities in the cottage were amazing and we wanted for nothing! The owners were incredibly helpful, we can highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a relaxing break in Norfolk.
We particularly liked the comfort and decor of the property and the helpful, friendly owner who had lots of lovely things for us in the kitchen and bathroom; a superb cottage! Good location to explore the area. Quiet and tranquil setting.
We booked this property with the sole intention of having a relaxed quiet holiday what we got on first sight was a building site and an infestation of ants, workmen working all day long leering in to our bedroom. There was scaffolding around the property ,old kitchen appliances in the garden, the shared garden is a mown bit of field, no drain pipe when it rained so it ran all night.. Nothing at all was the owners fault for the mess, it was other peoples fault. If you want to spend a week on a building site with the most unapproachable person you will ever meet then this is the place for you, otherwise avoid it like the plague, did i mention the rats running around all day. Also No shower for a week which simply didn't interest her even though we needed one for my partner who struggles getting in a bath . It advertised as 3 minutes from a pub, its 1 mile away it also states 2 miles from the local shop, its four miles to the next village.
